As school goes back in a little over a week and I've done little to no homework, I decided to go to the library (which is where I'll be spending the next year of my life.. Hello year 12, goodbye social life). Getting there an hour before it opened wasn't ideal but I did what any blogger would do; grabbed my camera and walked aimlessly looking for walls and parkland trying to find a decent place to take some snaps.
I wasn't really dressed to the nines as I may or may not get a couple of stares if I was writing out my psychology notes in a ball gown, but I still like the combo of this watercolour floral dress with tough-ish boots. True to my indecisiveness, I love mixing something feminine with something a little edgy.

Button up

Firstly, I deeply apologise for the quality of my photos so far. My camera unfortunately passed away upon the birth of my brain child to start blogging, and I'm currently in the process of buying another.
Back on topic, I love my outfit today! We had a moderately cool day for an Australian summer, typical Melbourne, so I jumped at the opportunity to slip back into my skinny jeans. One of the easiest ways to get a preppy-esk look is to layer a collared shirt over a jumper, as I did here. I absolutely adore this vintage bag, however I saw one similar at K-Mart of all places. So if you're after one similar, try there, the resemblance was uncanny!

London Calling!

There's something about England, particularly London, that has made me dream of living there since I was very young. Sitting here now in 40 degree heat down in Australia makes my dream of cool weather and a wardrobe full of coats, boots and stockings even more desirable.
Ive recently stumbled across fellow fashion blogger 'wishwishwish' who resides in little old London. Her pictures are amazing and I definitely recommend checking her out if you haven't done so already! Red telephone booths, the union jack, the busy streets *sigh* take me there!
Don't get me wrong I ADORE Australia, particularly Melbourne where I currently live, however this summer heats sure gets me down. Winter fashion is so much more exciting! Layers upon layers of jumpers and coats, stockings in every colour you could dream of and some yummy hot chocolate to match.

What's your favorite seasons style? And if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Printemps Precieux de Chanel

Chanel's Spring makeup line for 2013 is set to be released this week (exactly when depends on where about you live) and in my humble opinion it looks absolutely beautiful!
True to the brand, it features classic colours such as pink and red polishes and frosted lipsticks in neutral shades as far as the eye can see. What am I most excited about? The highlighting face powder which is exquisitely embossed with an elegant design.
Chanel makeup is known for being luxurious and high quality, which I'm sure will be the case with this collection!
Let me know what makeup brand you like and which products you're excited to try :)

Get your study on!

I wore this to lunch, followed by a study day at the library with a few close friends. It's quite hot in Melbourne today so I wanted to wear something light and simple, yet still on trend and chic. Virtually everything pictured are classic pieces that all women have in their wardrobe (or should consider investing in, seriously guys I practically LIVE in this stuff!)
My striped tee from Sportsgirl and tailored cotton shorts from Supré (super flattering may I add) are incredibly versatile, comfortable and will never go out of style.
This structured black, quilted handbag was perfect for carrying my textbooks and laptop!
My studded ballet slippers add an edge to the look while the black belt and pandora bracelet bring everything together. Love!

Hey stud.

Punk. Seriously, wrap up anything punkish, put a bow in it and I'm a happy girl. However I can't seem to rock the piercings and I have too much love for the colour pink to call myself a true punk. So you could my excitement when I started to see everything from studded heels on boots to biker jackets covered in hundreds of little spikes creep onto the runway.
Easiest way to rock it? Shoes. They're more obvious and daring than a studded bracelet for example but not too scary for even the most conservative. I especially adore my Pied A Terre suede slippers and Betts nude and gold ballet flats (pictured).
I'd love to hear what you guys think of the trend!
