SILVER ACCENT.

{New boots from Nasty Gal – Get them here!}

Gosh I love shiny new things and these boots from Nasty Gal definitely make me happy. When I first slipped them on I thought the heel might be a bit too high for everyday wear, but three days later, I have barely taken them off. I was looking for the perfect pair of everyday boots for my upcoming overseas trip and it looks like I’ve finally found my winners. My shoe addiction lives yet another day.

ELECTRIC.

{Knit – Mossman Clothing; Velvet Leggings – homemade; Boots – Topshop; Clutch – no name}

This is my quintessential weekend comfort wear – which often trickles over into the weekdays too, when it’s cold and I’m feeling kind of slobbish (which is usually 7 days of the week). Since my job involves sitting at a computer for the most part, comfort is absolutely key.

I got my mum to whip these velvet leggings up several years ago and I only recently re-discovered them sitting in the back of my wardrobe. This Mossman knit has also proved itself to be quite the style saviour, as it’s warm and soft – but gives the illusion of being dressier than it is with its’ metallic sheen. I had the pleasure of shooting with Mossman over the weekend, for a special little collaboration, but more on that shortly.

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead – happy Monday! x

MOODBOARD.

{Follow Style Paws on Tumblr here}

I have been in an uphill battle with a cold this week, hence a lack of blog posts. I’m excited to have joined the Tumblr train though so if you’d like to see the ridiculous amount of right-click-saves I have in my “Inspirations” folder, feel free to follow me here. I’m mainly inspired by beautiful interior design and travel photos that make my mind wander, but there is a good helping of fashion and furry animals in there too. 

ALIDA BUFFALO.

Once again the creative genius of Alida Buffalo transcends time and place and takes me far into a world of daydreams, rock and roll glitter and 70s love-ins. There is something so magical about this lookbook and I want to be a part of it. I can hear the soundtrack playing when I look at these photos and it is somewhat reminiscent of my dream record collection. Kit Scholley always stays so true to her inspiring style and compromises nothing. As a result, I’m an awestruck teenager in love.

THE CAT MAP.

{Photos by Chase & I}

The Great Cat Head Roadtrip of 2012. We hit the road armed with a map in the shape of a cat’s head, a full tank of fuel and a couple of disposable cameras. We discovered gold prospecting, hidden creeks, motels straight from David Lynch’s twisted mind, farmers markets, wine, cheese and towns too small to even appear as a footnote on a map. A small glimpse of our travels as captured by one of life’s greatest mysteries -35mm film. We also got rather emotional when we reached the tip of our cat’s left ear – see the photo of the intersection of road. It was a strange accomplishment.
