Hello my loves! Before I get into anything else, a very happy 2016 to you all. I hope that the new year has kicked off to a great start for you guys and that those new years resolutions are in full effect as we reach the middle of January… I decided to try and get active this year and eat healthier but alas, I’ve already had a couple of cheat days – why is it so hard to stop eating food that’s bad for you?! Ha.
I’ve been adjusting to life away from London – it’s been a challenge but so exciting at the same time! I have to confess though, the Aussie summer is nothing like what I expected. It’s either insanely hot or pouring – but here’s a look from a day that was one of those rare days where you get the best of both worlds. A storm was brewing and the air had a little bit of a chill in it that day, so I finally got to wear a drape jacket (aka my comfort blanket). I teamed a gorgeous sleeveless soft long vest from Tokito clothing at MYER and a sleeveless knit from ALL ABOUT EVE, also at MYER. I teamed them with my trusty pair of distressed jeans from TOPSHOP – these babies are so perfect for sucking in the post holiday season pounds.. ;). I slipped on these ever so comfortable but gorgeous pair of espadrilles from David Jones which I picked up in their New Year Sale. Finally, to accessories I added a few accents of gold with a couple of bracelets and some midi rings, a black fedora and a small handbag.
On another note, I know I’ve been soo slack in the last couple of months but leaving London took it’s toll on me and I’m soo glad to say that I’m all settled in now and am sooo excited for my travels next month. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks trying to get my mojo back and can honestly say, I am once again excited for all things Londonite
As always, thank you for reading.. until the next post!
Hey my loves… so if you follow me on Insta you know that I am in the land down under at the moment and while I am so overwhelmed with how beautiful the central coast is, one thing I definitely can’t handle is this heat!
Even though I hate cold weather, what I do love is winter fashion – I love layering up, OTK boots and chunky knits so I was a tiny bit disappointed about skipping winter in London this year – sounds crazy right?
What I did realise though is that I just don’t own that many clothes suited to an Aussie Spring – a wardrobe full of drape jackets just won’t cut it. As you guys know, I avoid wearing shorts or mini’s so this outfit was ideal for a scorcher of a day on the coast.
I teamed up this gorgeous, lightweight maxi skirt from JEANSWEST with a white bardot top from TOPSHOP and a navy blue fedora. To accessorize I added on a few silver bracelets and midi rings and a pair of statement sunnies from QUAY. Finally, I finished the look off with a pair of nano lace up black heels from Dotti… and there you have it, suitably covered and still cool!
Hope you guys are all staying warm back home and gearing up for Christmas – I am currently mentally preparing myself for my first hot Xmas here..
As always, thanks for reading – until the next post.
Sup lovers! Yesterday I decided to trade in my kicks for super high heels and finally shoot an item that I have been DYING to style up.. this gorgeous cape from LAVISH ALICE.
I’ve actually had my eye on this cape coat for some time and just before I left the UK, I decided to take the plunge and buy it.
I went for my usual combo of black on black on black and accessorized with touches of chrome. I paired my ASOS ankle grazing black skinnies with a racer back vest, opting to keep the outfit underneath relatively simple as the cape was dramatic enough. I accessorized with a statement silver necklace, an ethnic cuff and a pair of mirrored sunnies from YESSTYLE – which are a real bargain at under £10! To finish the look off, I slipped on a pair of peep toe booties, also from ASOS and a quilted Chanel flap bag.
I really love this look AND I think the cape is so appropriate for this week seeing as someone called me a ‘Chic version of Dracula’ while I was wearing it.. hey, that sounded like a compliment to me!
Hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far..
Hello my lovvveeeesss.. it’s been a red hot minute hasn’t it? It’s great to be back in the swing of things and there’s so much to fill you in on too!
I have left the United Kingdom and the next six months have been mapped out with trips to Sydney, LA, NY, Colombia and Dubai (so far) and I am also now, officially, self employed *gulp*. It’s been three weeks since I left the big smoke and so far I’ve already been on 6 planes, 8 cities and seen temperatures of 30 degrees and -13.. and I’ve been loving every single second of it!
One of the absolute highlights so far has been visiting a place in the northern areas of Pakistan, 10,500 feet above sea level, called Saif-Ul-Malook.
I’ve never seen anything like this place – it is so breathtaking.. and the blanket of snow that covered it only seemed to add to it’s beauty. I was dressed more for comfort than anything else, but still HAD to get a few photos up there.
I wore a mesh american football top from MISSGUIDED with my current fav black ankle grazing skinny jeans from ASOS. I layered up with a black perforated bomber jacket from TOPSHOP and slipped on my trusty Air Force 1‘s. To add a pop of colour to the monochrome look, I accessories with a mirrored pair of sunnies from BALMAIN.
I’ve found that ever since I got my hair cut short, I seem to be living in trainers and bomber jackets.. but more on that another time
Hope you guys are all doing well and thank you SO SO much to all of you who emailed me in my time off to check up on me <3 you guys are the best!
To all my Pakistani followers, I hope all of you are safe and sound following today’s earthquake!
