Wearing: Uniqlo black turtleneck, vintage jeans.

So I’m back in my hometown for my mid-semester break and feeling a little out of my element. I mean, I’m currently full of homecooked food, smelling like a vanilla cupcake and snuggled in a dressing gown, but I guess a little bit of me got really used to the grit and grime of the city. Isn’t it funny how when you visit a place you have an entirely different perception of it than when you live there? Don’t get me wrong- this city is the best- but I used to visit thinking that everything was shiny and glamorous. Cities are dirty and chaotic, man- but that’s also what I’ve learnt to adore.

I know it’s been minutes but honestly, I just needed to get that last leg of my term out of the way. In classic Izzy fashion I left every necessary thing til the last minute and scrambled to finisht them all in hours where I should have been sleeping. Many lattes were involved and also toast at weird hours of the morning. Anyways, I’ll be seeing more of you- have a beautiful weekend!


bad to the bone

Wearing: Thrifted Bad to the Bone tee, turtleneck (worn underneath) c/o Glassons, Levis “Wedgie” jeans via Shopbop, thrifted RM Williams boots.

So this has inadvertently become my daily uniform: wedgie jeans (appropriately named as I have a wedgie most of the time) (tmi??? I don’t really know anymore with this internet thing anymore sorry), an oversized t-shirt of some kind, a turtleneck, a bomber jacket and the same goddamn boots every time. Sometimes I’ll really mix it up and wear a different pair of jeans. Wild.

This is usually the part where I tell you about my weekend but I actually can’t remember anything I did?? Must not have been that exciting. I didn’t go out though which meant I didn’t have a hangover even once so basically #fitspo #cleanliving #newme. Hope you had wonderful hangover-free weekends too! xx

Wearing: Top via Penny Lane Exchange, Supre jeans, Supre belt, RM Williams boots.

Don’t be fooled, I was abso-freaking-lutely freezing in this outfit. You most definitely cannot wear this sort of get-up here in winter. Unless you were interested in hypothermia. But sometimes you gotta do things for the #fashun amirite?

These pics were taken on a standard day running around Brunswick with Ren. I feel like I’m there pretty much every day because between my campus, really good coffee, cheap groceries and the best op-shopping ever there’s really no reason not to be. I also work at the lil consignment store there, Penny Lane Exchange, so if you’re ever in the area pop in n say hi! I’ve only got two weeks left of school before going home, though- and my two best friends are both overseas. I mean, I have my family and that’s awesome, but this will certainly be a weird trip back home without them there. Maybe this will mean more time to vlog???

Speaking of, here’s a new one for you guys. I really hope you love it cause I kinda do. Was pretty stoked with my editing. Let me know whatchu think.

What are your plans for da weekend? x

Outfit one (silky bomber): Opening Ceremony jacket via Shopbop, Supre jeans, RM Williams boots (thrifted).
Outfit two (red sweater): Vintage knit, Supre flares, Supre belt, RM Williams boots. 
Outfit three (picnic): Vintage silk blouse, vintage skirt (both via Yesteryear).

Oh hey! Long time no speak. Completely my fault, of course- I’ve been collecting photos all week with the blog in mind but never actually got the chance to post them. So a little breakdown: a picnic in the park (we were supposed to study) (we didn’t), an expensive-but-totally-worth-it brunch at Higher Ground, vintage warehouse trawling with much success, the discovery of technicolour street art amongst the city’s colour palette of black and grey and me fawning over this goddamn jacket. 

I also went to the Macklemore concert last night and it was grouse. Although, the age demographic was a little older and noone really seemed to understand us breaking it down in our seats. Who sits at a concert?! WHO!? Also I hear you guys and I am vlogging this weekend bc you’ve been asking where my videos are at. Something v exciting is happening tomorrow night so you’ll get to see woooo! Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend! xx
