And here we have the most awesome combo of the boyfriend jeans/trackies/harem pants I’ve ever seen. Probably wouldn’t hesitate to wear them to sleep if the opportunity arose. Speaking of sleep- there’s only 1 until Splendour! Some of you guys have messaged/emailed/commented that you’re making the pilgrimage too and I’d love it if you came and said hi. I’m heading out with Shellys Shoes and have some awesome neoprene backpacks to hand out, plus a whole bunch of Instagram photos to take. Ra Ra Superstar is one of the adorable shops in the very small mall that I’ll be hanging out at too, so if you’re interested in a meet-up at all let me know in the comments!

Splendour playlist is scheduled and ready to go. Hope you’re having an amazing week. xo

I hate that feeling of not posting in a while and having to announce my return- but here it is. Hello! First week back at school was expectedly hectic, and looking back at it I suppose my failure to schedule a post or two may have been denial that I was going into my second semester of Year 12. But seriously- what? I still feel like an awkward Year 8 student running from my locker to get to class on time. Actually, things are pretty much the same; add on four years. Once a year 8, always a year 8.

Accidental rant swayed me from the obvious focus of this post- this amazing set from the Ringuet Spring 2014 collection. I can’t really get enough of the Asian-inspired origami folds and silky-smooth black fabric. Resisted the urge to wear a hat and ankle boots because it’s just that classy. This says a lot.

One last thing- SPLENDOUR IN LESS THAN A WEEK, PEEPS. Currently blasting Outkast and shaking it like a polaroid picture in preparation. Obviously. I’m headed to the event with Shellys Shoes and will be covering pretty much everything- think outfits, my favourite acts, street style and random snaps- on their blog and Instagram. Plus my own, of course. So hold onto your hats and get ready for my Splendour playlist. Because it wouldn’t be a festival without one and some of you lovely humans have been requesting it over at my Tumblr. Happy weekend. So much love.

Constantly pretending it’s summer despite the bitterly cold 2-degree mornings. Tonight’s blog post is an unintentional ode to the most classic of festival-wear, in preparation for next weeks Splendour festivities. Overalls, dirty boots, billowy blouses and floppy hats. Basically what I’ll be packing in my oversized suitcase, along with many, many more outfits that I probably won’t wear and emergency pieces for all weather- because you’ll all be sorry when it starts snowing and you didn’t bring your ski jacket. I kid- but seriously, I’m the worst packer ever. AND THE MOST EXCITED PERSON EVER. Splendour is next week, people! I know I’ve done a gazillion posts on festival dressing, but if you’re interested in a mini-lookbook/some outfit ideas before the big day(s) hit me up in the comments below. I can also do a playlist- it is all about dat music, after all.

Feeling a little delirious as I may have tried a little too hard to live up those final days of holidays. Not enough sleep. Too much coffee. Lots of fun. Basically, at the beginning of the holidays, I made one of those lists outlining all the productive things I will accomplish in those precious two weeks (including writing a novel. Writing a novel?) and proceeded to not really do any of them. But that’s what holidays are for, right? Anyway, school’s back. I don’t wanna talk about it. How were your holidays?

off duty

Posted on: Wednesday, July 9, 2014

I like to think I’ve nailed the whole “off-duty” thing. But considering I am currently unemployed and entire life is basically off-duty, it comes pretty easily. So when Somedays Lovin’, Arrow Divine and Shambhala Resort Byron asked me to be a part of their “Off Duty” themed style challenge, challenge was obviously accepted. Pulled this “I don’t give a…” shirt out of dad’s wardrobe, and this little romper conveniently covered the not-so-accurate depiction of a rat’s ass. Remind me never to let me dad wear that in public.

Keeping it short and sweet as Maria and I have a big night of Gossip Girl re-runs ahead. My holidays are almost over and I don’t want to talk about it. Plz. If you’ve got any post suggestions, I’ve been on a spree lately and am looking for inspiration! Feel free to leave them in  the comments below. Hope you’re having an amazing week!

I have somehow acquired a total of five black fedora hats, all basically identical, that I really don’t remember purchasing. I think it’s turned into a subconscious thing. Whenever I see one I feel a strong need to add-to-cart despite the ever-increasing pile-up in my room, forget about it and get a surprise when the same thing arrives 5 times in the mailbox. Anyone want a black fedora?

Seriously can’t stop wearing these boots- the colour/style/heel height combination is on point. If you by any chance want to pick up a pair of your own, Justa Local Store donates $25 from each pair to charity. Nice one, guys. This smock is another repeat offender as of late. I like to think of them as “stylish sacks.” As I’m struggling to string together sentences right now, Camilla basically summed up every feeling I have about the matter. She’s my fave.

One last thing before I pass out from exhaustion- if you’re a little confused by the whole “brood” theme happening on my Instagram, Kurt’s family bought a cafe that opened up on Tuesday. If you’re a Sunshine Coast local come and say hi! We make good coffee. Plus cakes. Oh, the cakes.

Sleep time. PS- Vlog now up on my Youtube channel! Thumbs up/comment/like/whatever it is you kids do these days. Enjoy your weekend!

Back with more denim (woops) and probably my most-worn item: the black hat. Slightly predictable but pretty much all I could muster up, with the whole brain-frying thing induced by upcoming exam block. In retrospect, this weekend probably wasn’t the best time to binge-watch an entire season of Orange is the New Black. Many regrets. Updates since my last post: School is making me cry, I babysat for my neighbours and visited Grandma. Drank copious amounts of tea. Kurt’s started wearing one of those little man-buns. Still undecided.
AND THAT’S LITERALLY IT. Life’s a little slow for me right now but I’ll be rolling out some different posts pretty soon. Please say your life is more exciting than mine right now?!

Oh, and just thought I’d take the opportunity to spread some love. You guys are the best and your comments make me unbelievably happy!

Oversized denim-actually just denim in general- has been on high rotation for me this long weekend. Primarily because it’s just so freakin’ easy. Saturday was a Three of Something tank and light wash skinnies, Saturday night was a striped crop and high-waisted denim mini, Sunday was a little white dress with a chambray tee over the top and Monday I finished it all off with a bang: double denim and a comfy tee. So I unintentionally spent the entire weekend wearing denim. Is this a bad thing? Not so much. It’s a classic, guys. Just no triple denim, please! Kurt tried to wear jeans, a chambray tee and a denim snapback to dinner once. He took it off after incessant protesting from my end. Obviously.

Nothing exciting to report because does that ever happen? I’m happy to say that I’ve hopefully got something worth posting about on the cards soon (can’t. contain. much. longer.) but for now, I’ll leave you with the exciting announcement that I’m going to clean my room. I actually couldn’t go to bed even if I wanted to seeing as it’s COMPLETELY COVERED in everything I’ve ever owned. I also have a yoga mat laid out for all those home workouts I do (pfft) buried in clean laundry. How I manage to actually do schoolwork, blog and stay somewhat organised will forever be a mystery to me…

Soaking up the last remnants of summer in white lace- because really, what else would be appropriate? The beach is so turbulently moody and beautiful on windy winter days like these. Thank god for the long weekend. I spent all morning recovering from one too many late nights, and the afternoon drinking chai on the beach with mum. Bliss.

Quick update: things are going really well for me at the moment. Happy, healthy and eating plenty of delicious food. I honestly haven’t felt this good in a really, really long time and I can now say that recovery is so worth it. The months of pain are worth a lifetime of freedom! Soz for the sappiness, I just felt the need to let y’all know. We’re all friends here.

Australians, soak up that long weekend… I sure will be. So much love.

PS- I’ve given my Tumblr a revamp and have found myself re-addicted in the process. I post everything from my writing to photos of doughnuts. Check it.

PPS- One of my friends is a finalist in a comp with Mavi jeans to win a trip to Turkey. I wouldn’t normally ask this but if you could swing a vote in Bonnie’s direction she would be so stoked!

leopard is my favourite colour

Posted on: Monday, June 2, 2014

These sunglasses provide general leopard-print awesomeness  without bordering anywhere near Snooki territory. Mostly because any gaudiness is offset by chic shades like navy and black. Red lipstick helps, too. But if you want to venture into Snooki territory and wear that tiny dress and matching headband you go for it, girl, because leopard print really is my favourite colour. The testimony to animal print was unintentional. I’m slightly overtired.

You see, this post was supposed to go up last night, but I got lost in the haze of a hot shower and clean sheets. And then somehow ended up asleep. Now it’s the second day of winter,  the fire’s blazing and the stinky dogs are blissfully curled up next to me on the couch. The usual middle-of-term slump has definitely hit, but is slightly softened by happy moments like these. Life is guuud.

last light

Posted on: Thursday, May 29, 2014

Last-minute photos with Mum in the late afternoon light. Winter has basically been profoundly summery so far, but the sun still sets in the early hours of the afternoon and casts a hazy glow over our little corner of suburbia. These unplanned, quick-grab-the-camera kind of shoots are always fun, because there’s no pressure and usually more room for creativity. I love this offbeat colour combo and the worn-in feel of these boots. Paired with my skull pendant and messy-hair, I think it’s a perfect “toned-down boho.”

I wish I had something witty and entertaining to share, but unfortunately these past two days have been astoundingly uneventful. Somehow I was roped into the school production, I’ll be standing up the back of the dance numbers for most of the weekend. I’m only in it for the costumes, really. Sparkles make me happy. What are your plans for the weekend?
