BLAZER OBSESSION

It's true. I have a thing for blazers. Can you blame the girl? A blazer is a classic staple piece that I think we should all have in our wardrobes -just in case you have that very important job interview.  Wrong. Yes, a blazer will always be the go-to piece for any work related situations but who said that you can't sport a blazer for other occasions?! The great thing about blazers, is that they will never go out of fashion. Ever. If you have a basic casual outfit, wearing a blazer will instantly make you look more polished and put together. 
Blazers comes in so many different styles and shapes and each blazer can be dressed differently. I love the versatility of blazers, you can choose the classic route or the preppy look.
This blazer I have here that I have purchased from Lucy In The Sky and will be sporting for this Spring, is a classic blazer with a twist. I love the floral detailing which is just perfect for this season. I love the 3/4 length sleeves for those warm days and the slits at the sides to give it a more relaxed fit. 
Because of the blue graphic print, I kept the rest of the outfit pretty basic to have it be the statement of the overall outfit.



I know I will get a lot of use out of this outfit by teaming it with different pieces for different occasions!
If you're a bargain shopper like moi and love good deals [don't lie, I know you do] especially from buying online, I came a across a site recently that provide us shopaholics with fashion coupons from CupoNation. It makes shopping online even more addictive but hey, when you think about it you are helping the economy. Plus, you're saving a bit of cash while you are at it. So, no more feeling guilty! They always have great deals and coupons for ASOS, Urban Outfitters, The Iconic and lots more! You're bound to find something that will tickle your fancy.
HAPPY SHOPPING!

MAKE THAT CHANGE


From time and time again, we will get into a “slump” where we feel lost or insecure about ourselves.  We underestimate the strength we have in us and start to have self-doubt. That was exactly how I felt last week... I felt there was a missing piece of a puzzle from my life but what exactly was that missing piece? I am still figuring it out… I just wasn't myself and I felt “off”- almost bursting into tears in public a few days ago. Regardless of how I was feeling, every day I would still get up, dress up and show up to wherever I needed to be or do. The repetition of this cycle continues for as long as I wanted it to. However, it’s not a healthy cycle when I’m not feeling 100% content with my life. I’m over it. Something has to change

No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up, show up, and Never give up

At the end of the day if you aren't satisfied with something, change it. It is as simple as that. If you change nothing, nothing will change. Stop playing the victim that makes excuses.
"If you're having a horrible day, it's your fault. If you're having a good day, it's your fault."

It's a metaphor...


Do remember that at this moment, every single one of us are exactly where we should be in life. Everything you choose to do, every single decisions you chose to make, have led you to where you are right now. Where you will be tomorrow will only be DIFFERENT, if you choose to make that change TODAY to do something different to what you have always been doing every single day prior to that. If you're happy with where you are at right now then kudos to you, but if you're not, don't sit around waiting for a miracle to happen. It's up to YOU to make that change.

You can make that choice to keep doing what you're doing and get the same result or take the little steps to get to where you want to be. It doesn't have to be a drastic change. Don't overwhelm yourself. Do something each day, little by little to reach your goal. You just have to make that choice to start.

My friend, Cali Jae has written up a post about starting your dreams today. Listening to her podcast had really motivated me to stop procrastinating and start working towards my goals. It was just what I needed to hear that day. You can read about it HERE.

So what is it going to be? Are you going to be that type that keep moaning and complaining about your life? Or are you going to be that person that strive for the best and make that change?

OUTFIT| MSFW 2014


Hey lovelies! I attended the final designer runway show for the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week last Friday and it was so much fun! Spring is my favourite season and boy oh boy, are we in for a treat this season! The whole week, we were presented with Australia's finest, inspirational designers with their amazing design talent; showcasing romance, beauty, culture and rhythm of fashion. Woweee, a round of applause for their work of art!  


Blazer- H&M
Dress- Sabo Skirt
Shoes- Famous Footwear
Bag- Colette
Earrings- Lovisa
Ring- Samantha Wills 

Fashion week is a week to be adventurous and be a little experimental with your outfit choices. However because it was my first time going to a proper designer runway, I didn't want to go too over the top. I decided to dress comfortably and stay true to my own style.
 When in doubt, monochrome is the way roll.
For my outfit choice for the evening, I went with a simple bodycon dress with the contrasting white line detailing. I love how versatile this dress is, that I can dress it up or down. In this case, I dressed it up. Even though this outfit is very simple; with the wedged nude heels, satchel and accessories and the way I styled my hair, it just completes my look to be looking appropriate for the event.  
Adding some bling to jazz up the outfit. How amazing is this gem by one of my favourite jewelry designers, SW?! 

Oh dear! What was I thinking?! Squid Ink Risotto for dinner..Trust me though, it tasted better than it looks. After devouring this dish, I was left with a pair of black lips and slightly black stained teeth. Very pretty... Luckily, I wasn't on a date! 

Stay tuned for my next post which I will be recapping the designer runway four show, sharing some of my favourite picks and what we will be expecting to see for the latest Spring/Summer collections! 

UPDATE: I apologize that I won't be posting up the review of the show. Simply because it has been a little more than a week since the show and I wasn't 100% happy with the content after I have written it up. If you're still interested in reading the recap of the runway show, Brittany Steward writer at The Trend Spotter has written up a very well short and sweet review of the show. You can read it HERE.

What's a trend that you will be sporting this season?
