Black & White Alternative

It’s been a while since wearing grey, so thought I would give it some love this week. It’s a nice alternative to monochrome, and fits well with the crazy weather that Sydney has been experiencing  this week. It's currently 10 degrees colder than this weekend which means I have reverted back to knits. Although the thicker threads are my favourite kind, I have actually started to enjoy styling spring looks. Todays combo is a good transeasonal style. This two-piece is a great look for those “what’s the weather up to?” kind of days, and you can layer it if the storms roll in. The bell bottom flares are also on trend for this season, and make a good change to the denim and floaty styles that are filling store rails right now. I love a good two-piece for back and forth to work. It’s smart enough to pass as a relaxed tailored set, but comfortable enough to sit in all day. Plus, Boohoo is a Northern hemisphere brand so always feel as though it’s a bit more fashion forward. For added grey notes, this jacket effortlessly matches the outfit perfectly, and with the wind picking up it was a smart styling choice. 

White fringed mules and my Alila The Label bag were the accessories of choice. If you follow my Instagram, you would already be aware that I have a slight obsession for anything marble so instantly fell head over heels for this bag. It’s a great design with an option of 3 straps, which is always handy depending on whether you want to wear on your shoulder or cross body. I also used this bag for brunch on the weekend, and received a few compliments surrounding the print.

This week, I've been introduced to Cloud Nine Hair styling range. I've become a fan of their new micro wand which I achieved todays tousled waves with. It’s so easy to use, and added bonus it’s super lightweight which will be a blessing when travel time comes around for my new job! It will definitely be coming with me! It’s halfway through the week, and can’t figure out where the time has gone. As mentioned, I started a new job a few weeks back, so between settling in and focusing on my blog more, it’s a tiring cycle. But I’ve made a promise to myself that I won’t let either suffer. If you love what you do, you make it happen regardless. Hope you all have a great week!

  1. I actually envy your random Sydney weather - the cooler part anyway. Now that everyone in the northern hemisphere is getting ready for winter, I really want to wear a cosy knit and chunky coat again (worst timing ever), but it's definitely far too hot for that here already. Even our low/mid-twenty degree days feel warm. Hmph.

    I LOVE the flares by the way. I didn't manage to get my hands on any I loved last season, so hopefully I'll pick some up before next autumn!

    Keep up the AMAZING posts lovely lady!
