Was there a cheeky tease of spring in the air this weekend? The Sydney chill has definitely eased off, and I’m finding it hard to come to terms with packing up heavy knits for another year. I have an unhealthy obsession with winter fashion! Yes, I’m a little sad I can’t layer as much, but how good is it to pack away all your heavy jumpers to make room for all those lightweight neutral spring pieces? My wardrobe is officially 50% more spacious! Plus I’m not going to lie, a taste of warmer weather felt good so good on my pale skin!
For the most part of winter, I have been wearing relaxed, oversized slouchy tailoring. But after hitting the gym a little more than usual I felt it was time to wear something a little more figure hugging! I introduce you to Sabo Skirt. If you're on the lookout for bohemian comfy summer threads look no further. I’m not a huge fan of tight clothing, but actually liked the lines on this dress. Asymmetric hems are always fun to style, and couldn’t quite resist a chunky cardigan as a fairwell to the winter chill. Plus, I’m honestly not ready to pack away every piece of knit just yet. Even in spring, there can be an evening breeze that condones that optional jacket in hand. Neutrals are always welcomed in my wardrobe when I’m not wearing black or navy, so opted for an all cream look. Is this the first time you have seen me in sneakers? Being in the mountains was an exception last month, but with added photography jobs in the mix I needed a flat option to help me get in and around the city. These Converse are a great street style shoe, and being white conveniently fit nicely into my monochrome closet.
The oversized clutch from Karen Millen is a nice alternative to a cross body bag, and it’s surprising how much you can actually fit in there! If you like to take an i pad or kindle on your daily commute then this could be your go to work bag! I always used to think of clutch bags as an evening accessory, but don’t let this assumption fool you. It’s a great option for a daytime brunch or as mentioned your day to day bag.
Hope you’re all having a great week! Won’t be long before fashion month kicks off which I am tres excited about! Who else is eager to see what’s in store for us all in the style world?
