    Coat: Trenery | Dress: Asos

    Long weekends and the Margaret River region go hand in hand. Wineries, beautiful food and dark moody skies. I had a pretty nasty head cold hit which made snuggling up in this Trenery coat all the more appropriate.

    Pretty Little Package

     

    Blogging, social media and the Internet as a whole has no doubt opened up the world and broken down barriers between people. It’s easier than ever to get in touch with family and friends on the other side of the world but at the same time, we are more cut off from each other than ever. Of course the ugly side of social media is the rise in recent years of cyber bullying. The increase of suicides caused by cyber bullying is truly devastating but we can start making a difference, even if it is a small one.

    Cue… Pretty Little Package. An initiative started by fellow Perth blogger and one my fellow Restyle Bloggers, Adelle from Where The Styled Things Are. Adelle explains,”In MY world, the little things count, if somebody smiles at me, it makes me smile. If somebody randomly sends me a lovely text message, it makes my day. A simple gesture like a package with meaning in the post makes my entire WEEK! This is where #prettylittlepackage comes in to play.”

    Pretty Little Package is just ONE small act of kindness to make someone’s day. You can get involved by sending someone a Pretty Little Package by registering with Adelle and you can find all the info you need here.

    Sandals: gifted, Jelly Beans | Cape: Asos | Tank: Bardot

    Do you remember Jellies? If you grew up in the 90′s these shoes surely featured as part of your childhood wardrobe. Well Jelly Beans are back and are no longer only for the kids. You can get yourself a pair of these seriously comfy, summer friendly sandals here.

    In other news, can’t take this cape off. It’s the perfect work to weekend cover up!

  4. Absent

    Hi team, I’m sorry for my absence over the last few weeks. The truth is I’ve started a new job, spent a week down south training, and quite honestly am feeling a little burnt out with the whole blogging caper.

    I’m still trying to figure out how to fit all of this in – full time work, friends, family, relationships, exercise and blogging… sometimes something has to give.

    And if I’m being extra honest, I have to admit that Restyle really took it out of me. I didn’t realise how much of a commitment it would be when I signed on. And even though I loved every minute of it I found that making it a priority in my life meant that everything else had to slip. I guess I’m finally getting everything back under control and with that, I can make some more space in my life to dedicate to my favourite hobby!

    In the meantime, I’ve been spending a lot of time perusing the Free People site lately. There is something about that boho, hippy-esque vibe that really appeals to me. Their latest lookbook, Tuxedo Girl, is dripping with cool, classic shapes and shades. Think black tie with feminine laces. Check out the Tuxedo Girl Lookbook!

    Skirt: gift from a friend  | Top: Hello Parry | Heels: Michael Kors | Bag: Samvara

    Here’s another ‘TKAIT’ take on corporate. I start my new job next week and have been mentally pulling outfits together from what already exists in my wardrobe. I’m not big on spending money on a particular style of clothing that I’ll only wear in one aspect of my life e.g. corporate wear, so I like to use what I already have and mix those pieces together to create an outfit that suits the occasion. Come to think of it, my entire wardrobe is based on versatility. I don’t often buy outfits specifically for any one occasion, maybe that’s why I’m having such a hard time finding a dress to wear to my brothers wedding next year, but I digress…

    I did pick up these gorgeous patent leather pumps by Michael Kors as part of the new work wardrobe. Do you think I can get away with strolling through the vineyards in them on my first day?

    So I’m kind of obsessed with this hat. Especially paired with this vintage, embroidered denim dress, it’s all very backyard boho.

    What a naughty blogger I’ve been. Sorry for the lack of posts kids, but there has been lots going on! I know, I know… excuses, excuses. But there has been a few things occupying my time of late, including finding myself a brand, spanking new job! Yes, I’m moving to the dark side, leaving the comforts of advertising agencies to head into a client side marketing role and I can’t wait!

    Of course with a new job comes a new wardrobe. Especially important for me because I don’t own a slither of corporate clothing. Working in advertising generally means I leave the house in jeans everyday. This top is my first attempt at injecting some business style into my wardrobe. Did you notice how I promptly styled it with faded jeans and flats? This corporate thing might be a bigger challenge that I expected.
