Nobody knows

nobody-4Wearing – Nobody denim jacket, Madewell dress (similar), The Horse shoes, Mini Kanken backpack, Freckle & Co tassel bracelets, Alister Yiap hexagon ring, vintage sapphire bracelet (thanks Mumsy!)

Now I don’t know why, but I just haven’t been a huge fan of denim jackets – until now…Maybe it’s because their often boxy shapes tend to be rather unflattering on me or they conjure up these kinds of images in my mind (you know, the bad kind of 90s fashion that is not experiencing a revival). But I just couldn’t walk past these prettily embroidered shoulders of this Nobody creation! My first attempt at trying it on wasn’t such a roaring success but with a little help from the lovely staff at Merge Subiaco this little baby eventually came home with me and boy has it made itself comfortable! Paired with a simple lace dress and my soft-as-butter shoes from Sydney label, The Horse, this has fast become my favourite summer outfit.nobody-6 nobody-13nobody-14 nobody-10 nobody-2 nobody-5

If you look really closely you can see I sunburnt my nose! I don’t know about you, but sometimes as painful as they are, I often cherish my little sunburns as signs of a great weekend just passed. Rach said she was itching her mozzie bites fondly on their return to Perth! (And yes, I do not condone getting sunburnt and heartily endorse the whole slip-slop-slap thing, but I think I missed a patch on my nose!)

I’m absolutely digging the whole neo-90s look that’s sweeping the UK at present. I’m slightly obsessed with the crop-top-pencil-skirt silhouette, updated with new prints and colours. And can you blame me for adding neon into the mix? I bought this skirt from Urban Outfitters in London and it is oh. so. comfortable. The downside to comfort? No external holding in of the gut so I have to remind myself not to carb load just before wearing this one! But hey, who cares – I love it!cable-beach-herschel-1 cable-beach-herschel-2 cable-beach-herschel-3 cable-beach-herschel-4cable-beach-herschel-7 cable-beach-herschel-8 cable-beach-herschel-9cable-beach-herschel-11cable-beach-herschel-15cable-beach-herschel-18 cable-beach-herschel-19

La tour Eiffel

eiffel-tower-2Wearing – Sessun dress, Tintoretto stockings, Madewell boots, Freckle & co earrings

One of my absolute favourite cold weather colours is mustard. I just love the way it works so well with other earthy tones as well as a great red lipstick. I’d been dying to wear this cute little Sessun number since I bought it in New York last year! I waited and waited through the Australian spring and summer only to find out that work was sending me to the Kimberley for six months, the land of eternal summers! There went all my dreams of styling my 50kg of NYC-acquired clothing…Yeah, first world problems, I know! So I jumped at the chance to bring some of it halfway across the globe to France with us on our recent holiday. 🙂

These amazing suede tassel earrings were handmade by none other than my super-talented sis-in-law Rachel from Freckle & co. Be sure to take a look at her other equally pretty creations on her Etsy site, the perfect destination to find that special and unique gift!

Peachy keen

cablebeach-2Excuse the tatty hair in these photos – Jinn had just touched down in Broome, I’d come straight from work after spending a rather sweaty day travelling back from Kununurra, and rather than going back to my apartment to set his bags down and rest he said, “Allons-y!” So off to Cable Beach we went to catch the sunset! So this little shoot was pretty impromptu but we couldn’t help but take advantage of the peachy skies offsetting my totally unplanned peachy outfit. 🙂

This was actually the beginning of an amazing weekend that I just didn’t want to end. Not only was my hubby/BFF/accomplice here with me, but also someone who understands my Insta-obsession (don’t look at me like you don’t know what I mean!). I’ve not yet encountered anyone up here who shares my addiction so there have been countless social situations and dinners where I’ve practically had to sit on my own hands to prevent myself from taking a photo of my food or a gratuitous self-pic! We took so many photos in just three little days, so let’s hope my trigger-happy fingers have been appeased for now…until Jinn’s next visit of course!cablebeach-19 cablebeach-5 cablebeach-4 cablebeach-6 cablebeach-7 cablebeach-9 cablebeach-12 cablebeach-16 cablebeach-18cablebeach-20

Wearing – Gorman top (this is a beauty), peach shorts (similar) and neon sandals (Gorman overload!), Freckle & Co. tassel bracelet, friendship bracelet by me

Super duper Christmas present

outfit-6Say hello to my brand new glitzy and sparkly Super Duper Strength sunglasses by Karen Walker! Ever since I got them for Christmas from my wonderful family (chosen by my oh-so-clever husband) I’ve been concocting all sorts of outfits in an attempt to incorporate these sweet sunnies into my everyday wear (do you think they’d be OTT to wear to Woolies?). Geez, I sometimes even open their box just to sit and stare at them for a bit whilst getting hypnotised by the fine gold details and the little tiny faces you can find if you look hard enough…Obsessed much?

Also debuting here today is my tiny gelato-coloured tassel bracelet, lovingly created by Rachel (my very talented and gorgeous sis-in-law!) who has her very own Etsy shop here! Each one of those perfect tassels has been artfully and meticulously created by her very hands, so you can be assured that each piece of jewellery comes with so much love attached!outfit-2 outfit-1a outfit-4 outfit-8 outfit-3 outfit-5outfit-7

***What I’m wearing – navy blue jumpsuit by Gorman, embroidered tan leather belt also by Gorman (similar), brown leather sandals by Jeffrey Campbell (some other JC lovelies!), Super Duper Strength sunglasses in gold by Karen Walker eyewear, black triangle earrings by Scrumptious (similar), pastel tassel bracelet by Freckle and Co, vintage tooled leather handbag from Bluebird Vintage (too cute!)
