Colour Me Happy

Afends Bandcut Dress/ JET Jeans/ Friend of Mine boots/ Ray Ban Aviators

As the saying goes "those who wear black, lead colourful lives". I don't really understand why, when spring rolls around, so many brands and boutiques roll out the rainbow assortment of colours and tell us to embrace the season! 

If your like me and the thought of colour makes you nauseous, you don't need to follow the spring trends of 'brights and colour' and deck yourself out so you look like a technicolour piƱata to feel those fresh spring vibes.

I clearly love black...surprise, surprise! I find that it goes with everything and if I need a wardrobe update, its easy for me to just add a new statement accessory or pair of heels/boots to pretty much anything in my wardrobe for an instant update.

In saying that, I am always on the lookout for different washes of black, so when I found this AFENDS Dress on one of my afternoons excessively scrolling through Surfstitch online, I pretty much had to have it.
The beauty of this baby is that it is first and foremost a dress (perfect for summer as well... just front tuck it into some low, slouchy shorts) or wear it as a long tee as I have here with my distressed jeans for a little bit of a 'rocker' vibe.

I'd sell my soul for some sun

The post holiday blues have set in and Melbourne is being its total amazing self right at this moment (can you sense the sarcasm) Constant rain that seriously hasn't ended since I've landed and gloomy conditions. It is not giving me the best, if any motivation to plan any outfits for spring.

If there is anything that comes as a positive to this weather, its raincoats. They are the best addition to everyones wardrobe and a "can't live without" item here in Melbourne! 

I picked this little spotty number up from Surfstitch, its navy and goes with pretty much everything, is long in length which I am obsessed with currently (I am only buying guys tall tees and jumpers, haha) and has a cute spot print which lightens up an outfit and gives it some contrast to an otherwise muted palette.

If you are looking to add a raincoat to your wardrobe, opt for a lightweight version as it can be worn in pretty much any season, therefore getting your moneys worth, not that they are expensive but giving you some extra cash to splash on something else exciting.



About Time

Wearing: Milk & Honey longline Anorak / RVCA Faded Dress / Witchery Boots / Le Specs The Prince Sunglasses

Spring is approaching, cue everything floral, colourful and bright....my worst nightmare!

If you have been reading my blog over the years, you know that I have a love affair with the term 'dirty grunge'. Meaning I love monochrome, washed greys, anything with rips in it or a rock & roll vibe...not really spring brights, lol!

When trying to get my wardrobe sorted for the upcoming change in season, adding florals or following 'spring trends' make my palms sweat. So when I stumbled across this RVCA dress from Surfstitch with its dark and moody colour palette I literally jumped for joy.

Not only can I wear it as a dress, as pictured above, dressed up with thigh highs, but also dress it down with a pair of heavy set black buckled boots and longline cardi.

The shift style of this dress makes it suitable and flattering for all body shapes and is one of my favourite styles of dress. If your not keen on getting the pins out, or live in Melbourne like me where sometimes thats not an option, you can team this dress with a pair of black skinny jeans and trainers add a longline jacket and you have layered like a pro, without even trying!
