The weather has finally turned it on in Melbourne and Amy and I quickly snapped these hot and sweaty pics just before seeing our boyfriends play a gig (as they play in the same band) at one of our favourite Chinatown establishments, Ding Dong Lounge. On days where I am stressing out about picking the exact right outfit for my mood (we all dress by mood, like little style chameleons right?), sometimes it’s easiest to pare it right back to the basics. I had also come straight from work this day, so it needed to be somewhat “smart”. Hence, a classic cotton boyfriend shirt (Country Road do the best shirts) buttoned all the way up, with black leather shorts and an easy red lip to add colour.

I gravitate towards orange-mandarin type reds, I just think they work best for my skin tone and hair colour and this is one of my all time favourites. Sportsgirl do incredible lipsticks, they have amazing pigment, have a great matte finish without being drying and the colour lasts and lasts. Highly recommend!

STRIPES & LEATHER.

So excited to start shooting new content for my blog again with the fab Amy Whitfield, starting with this little outfit. Hat, check. Biker jacket, check. Little Black Ankle Boots, Check. Black and White, check. This outfit is basically all of my everyday essentials, and combines my most-worn items into one look. I barely take this jacket off, since I love how it always adds a little bit of edge to even the most feminine of outfits.

I also realised this bag and watch have never made much of an appearance on my blog, despite them also being on seriously high rotation. I was lucky to be gifted this copper Karl Lagerfeld watch from WSI Watches in Melbourne’s Emporium, and this Alexander Wang bag from Matches Fashion is easily one of my all-time favourite purchases. One thing I am (slowly) learning as I get older is that when it comes to accessories, it’s always better to invest in something quality.
