I know, I have an obsession with midi skirts and killer handbags.
I’m not going to apologise though, because you’ll be thanking me later.
Lately all of my edits have included items that are on my wishlist, and I finally got around to buying a Khaki midi skirt, yay!
I’m also torn between the Furla Metropolis Mini hip bag and this Alexander Wang bag, I think the Furla is the more affordable option though, so that solves that issue.
Finally, I need a pair of knee high boots! I am literally searching high and low for the perfect pair (at the perfect price) and let me tell you, with my taste it is not an easy task!

One day I will be able to justify wearing this sort of outfit everyday while I am hustling and bringing TFJ to life.
I kind of realised that I plan outfits like “if I were to walk around LA getting ready to interview Joe Jonas, what would I wear?”
It totally works though, because what motivates you more than the possibility of wearing a great outfit while meeting Joe Jonas?
The answer: Nothing.
PS: I just bought this skirt and am super excited
PPS: My next big purchase is definitely going to be this Furla Metropolis Mini hip bag.
PPPS: How freaking cool is this feather necklace?!

|| Predicaments ||

I am in the middle of a great predicament.
I want a credit card.
Not just any credit card, though; I want a David Jones card.
“Why the specificity?” you may ask.
Every one of the items in this edit are available to purchase at DJs with an awesome ‘Fashion Pay Later’ option, which gives you three months interest free on fashion and accessories over $250.
More than that though, I can get a staff discount so really, having a DJs card could be really, really dangerous.
Hence the predicament.

Every time I think of an ideal outfit, one of the first things I think about is affordability. When I saw the top for $17AUD I almost did a double backflip (sort of… not really) but I was very shocked. Then, I went searching for an inexpensive skirt and found this one from Doublju and lost my mind when I noticed it had been on sale for $4.90 and was $15 full price!!!

Nothing beats a gorgeous outfit that makes you look a million dollars, but actually costs $124.20 in total!!!

I’m also really loving neutral colours and rose gold at the moment, so it’s really reassuring to see that you can achieve a certain look for a minimal amount!

Enjoy

Day to Night

Day to Night

Let me be the one to tell you how difficult it is to rush home from a long and busy day out, only to get ready for the long night ahead with little to no time to make any decent changes!

This edit showcases a great and easy way to go from a casual, every day look (which is so so á la mode and easily transform it into a sophisticated look, perfect for a night out!

Included in this edit are some of my favourite pieces, like the Valentino Rock Studded flats and heels, and Mimco purses!

Finally, the neutral pallet of both looks inspire me. For what, exactly? Maybe to embrace a more mature life, to work hard enough so that I can enjoy everything that life has to offer… It’s funny how an outfit, more, an edit of an outfit can make you think this way. It could be the sophistication of the colours and pieces, or more the personal thought that went into it. I was thinking about an outfit that I would wear in a heartbeat, that could take me from work to dinners, events, anything.  I have big plans for my life, and I don’t intend on approaching them in mediocre clothes!

Spring chic

Untitled #168

There is nothing about this look that I wouldn’t wear. I was actually quite proud of the sophistication that radiates from this edit! I’m going to try to bring this look to life in the near future, and I cannot wait for the day to come! This neutral look literally has me yearning to purchase every piece and wear it every day for the next two years (all practicality aside, of course)

As a side note, I’m also looking for every excuse to purchase the Urban Decay Naked2 palette, and the idea of this gorgeous form fitting, city chic look is making the temptation really really hard to resist!
