shoes: Gorman (can’t find them anywhere new, but if you’re desperate  click here)

hello everyone.

a well belated merry christmas and happy new year. i’ve had such a great holiday and thoroughly enjoyed this festive season. so much so i forgot to update with this post that maddy and i took a few weeks ago now. love this wildfox top, but the only ish (issue) is that it really is as long as a dress, so tucking it in to things can require cutting back on certain movement to keep your shirt from poking out of your skirt. the thing i love about it is the sort of washed over grainy print on the soft brown. kind of the inspiration for the edit of these photos i suppose. i’m looking forward to the photos maddy and i have coming up for you. it seems each blog post now is becoming this mini photoshoot, which makes it a lot more fun i think. in other news, my sister bought me an airbrush makeup set for christmas that i am so excited to start using on people. to be honest i’ve only used it one family members yet, so i need some shoots/weddings to get me spray happy. i’ve got a mini review plus before and after for you. and i’ve also been thinking and planning away for the new super cool blog. i shall see you soon.

mexican tent shirt

Autumn,  Outfits,  Winter

 

top: Gorman
pants: Miss Shop
boots: Paris somewhere

so a fair while ago now my mamma bought this top from gorman for a mexican party. i however thought it was groovy, definitely festive, but worthy of casual every day wear. its tent like shape allows for great airflow. and the colours will certainly draw attention to yourself. the pattern is almost like aboriginal art in the way that it has spots and lines and trees. i dono. i’m no aboriginal art expert, but i’d say this shirt is the perfect hybrid of australian heritage, mexican fiestas, and a bed sheet. mix that with a pair of khaki jeans rolled at the ankles and a pair of overused boots that you will not stop wearing because they remind you of paris, and you’re in for a great day.
so on another note, chictopia (the web destination for a feed of fashion bloggers) have recently put a photo of me on their facebook page from my previous post. and i’d just like to tell you that it has 4,954 likes. i mean. what. if i could put numbers in capitols letters i would have. just know that i shouted that at you because i’m excited. seriously. if you’ve been one of those people, thank you. it has made my life a little better. i must say though, i did lol at some of the comments with people declaring me their new style idol. i mean that’s just hilar, as i more than anoyone am on this ‘cool quest’. so know that my laughter was only at myself and not at your appreciation for my outfit. i must have done something right to have nearly 5,000 likes… i’m going to stop talking about this now. i don’t want to lose my cool factor by having written a whole paragraph on how popular my photo was…yeah.

so thanks. you’re all amazing and way cooler than me!
