torches


 (Glassons dress, Marcs bag, Sportsgirl hat, Windsor Smith sandals)

This summer for me has been all about simplicity - the end of high school signals a change in pace and I have had time to do such cheesy things as: decluttering my life, relationships and, indeed, my wardrobe. Bags have been downsized (from huge totes to a tiny leather pouch) and things have been cleaned out, waiting to be given away or sold (market stall coming soon...). All this has cleared the way for exciting changes to come, with university and new jobs! (and savings from said jobs translating into new clothes).  One of my new years resolutions is to be more adventurous in the apparel department in terms of prints and colours. As you can tell, this particular 30 degree day was not taken as an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone, but rather as a time to don a fail-safe all black everything outfit and retreat into the safety of shopping centre  air-con. Maybe next year.

  1. I rarely see someone wearing all black in the summer time so this is definitely a unique outfit that would be out of my comfort zone. I have been trying to find a hat like yours because it gives such an elegant touch to an outfit and yours is no exception. And as far as resolutions go I feel like every once in a while breaks are good for the soul.

  2. Ugh, your outfit is so amazing. And I have a tendency to gravitate towards monochromatic colors as well, oops.
