Myself and the Amazing Roc

Amuk launched their new Spring/Summer 12 range in Melbourne a week ago at the opulent Mon Bijou Penthouse in the heart of Melbourne. I was lucky enough to have a front row seat to see what the team had put together.

Amuk's calling card is that they make their tees from Pima cotton which has a softer and denser texture and is much more durable than regular cotton. Their new range as showcased features this throughout and their mix of basic staples are perfect to easily add to any wardrobe. As a female fashion blogger you would have heard me countless times talk about the importance of basics in a females wardrobe. This is no different for men, the most stylish male fashion icon's out there almost always team their outfits with basics. The range that I saw at the S/S 12 launch was effortless. A great pallette of colours were used  making it simple to add to items already hanging in your wardrobe. The mustard chinos were my absolute favourite, teamed with one of their basic pocket tees and its probably the easiest outfit you can wear without worry.

I cannot recommend this label enough and have completely decked out my BF in the new range (much to his approval). 

Definitely check this one out boys, before its all gone and your stuck wearing the same old, same old!


Surf and Turf

Sabo Skirt Lounge Tunic Top/ One Teaspoon Bandits/ Sportsgirl Boots/ Lovisa Skull Ring/ Magali Pascall Thin Rose Gold Rings/ Le Specs 'Elmo' Sunglasses/ Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch

Its safe to say that One Teaspoon are one of my favourite aussie labels. and since they launched their 'Love Cats' collection, Ive pretty much wanted their whole new range. I am on their website at least once weekly, and last week saw these Bandits in the Navy Stripe and instantaneously had to have them, my life depended on it :) to my despair though they had sold out online, almost crying at this stage I made it my mission to find these in store before summer. 
I happened to be in Byron Bay last week and walked into this little boutique called 11:11 and lo and behold they had them in my size staring right at me, I literally almost kissed the shop assistant and purchased them straight away.
The reason I love the 'Bandits', is that they are so easy to wear with anything, the hem has a perfect line to it and its cuffed in all the right places, flattering any body shape.They come in such a multitude of colours and washes making it hard to choose but also suiting everyone's tastes. Needeless to say i am one happy lady :)



Retro Rewind

Asos Floral Pencil Skirt (Similar Here) / Eleven Rain Drops Jumper/ Asos Heels (Similar Here)/ Sabo Skirt Rose Gold Bracelet/ Lovissa Skull Ring/ Joy Jewelery Peace Bracelet/  Michael Kors Watch

New Seasons designs are starting to show up all over the place now that we have officially skipped into spring, pencil skirts which were once kept purely for 'office wear' have been updated with bold colours and digital prints to inject that flair and vibrance that spring demands from us here is Australia. I found this particular pencil skirt when I was doing 'research' (As I like to call it) for floral prints and have noticed that since purchasing it from ASOS, floral or printed pencil skirts are everywhere!

I have gone for a retro feel for this shoot with a cropped lace jumper from Eleven Rain Drops to show the skirt off, keep it simple and make sure the actual print remains the talking point. Its quite the change from what I am normally wearing, but it's one of my favourite looks so far this year. I think this is definitely a look that every woman should work into their wardrobe.
