Casually Overcast In Happiness

Wearing: Zara blazer and coated jeans, Sportsgirl top, Vans & Comme Des Garcons leather pouch

This is the first time we have ventured onto a rooftop to take photos. The quality of course could be better but that's what happens when you wait until almost dark and your hair is still wet to take some shots before dinner and a movie. As soon as we got there thinking it was such a great idea, I noticed there were some people skateboarding on the other side of the roof and I instantly became self conscious. I'm still not use to/comfortable with taking photos of myself in public places. I know that comes with the blogging territory but hey I like to be human sometimes. I'm going to try to do this more often so it feels second nature to get my picture snapped.
Few things about this outfit. Firstly new grey blazer, it's bangin'. Such a wardrobe staple and so easy to wear. I have to again praise the genuis of coated jeans. I love them. Perfect for all situations. Zara make them good. I wear my black pair to death, and this oxblood pair I picked up in New York is brilliant to spice up any outfit and such a perfect colour for winter.
Lastly my new Comme Des Garcons pouch!! It's perfect (overuse of word in this post but I'm in a good mood). I've wanted this one for agessss and when I finally decided to purchase it, it was sold out everywhere! And I mean everywhere. It took me three weeks to track one down but I did it and now it's mine :) :) too gooood.
Ahh what do you think of this outfit? I hope everyone has an amazing week coming up xx

The Espadrille

Last year Summer footwear was all about slippers, this year it's all about the espadrilles. I had a stint a few years ago with some sick tie-up espadrilles that I got from Sportsgirl. From that stint I learnt that I should not have bought a white pair because they are so dirty now I would feel embarrassed to ever bring them out in public again. However I could definitely be persuaded to sport a black pair as this is a trend I could definitely get on board with. Here's some inspiration to get us Southern Hemispherians ready for Summer xx
Let me know what you think of this trend.

Wearing: random jumper, Eska Alikai leather skirt, Glamourpuss heels and clutch from eBay

After being inspired by Maurie&Eve's Chimera jumper, it inspired me to pull out my own fuzzy jumper that I bought in one of those no name stores for like zero amount of monies. Slightly cropped with long arms, it seemed a perfect pairing for my trusty leather skirt and new lovers aka those lace up heels that I'm still obsessed with (and they get more comfortable with wear!) what do you think? I hope everyone has a nice weekend, I just made chocolate pudding! Xx

Wearing: Sportsgirl jumper, Maurie & Eve lace shorts (old), Diva and YSL rings

It's good finding items that you sort of forgot you had. Just like these Maurie&Eve lace shorts. If you've read this blog before you would know that it's these shorts that made me fall in love with the Maurie&Eve brand and finding new ways to wear them make me fall in love with them all over again. And in Winter its with a jumper! But not just any jumper. A jumper with cool racing stripes (I don't know if this is the right "term" for these type of stripes, it's just the first word that comes to mind when I see them. If someone knows the actual name of them please do let me know). I've wanted a jumper like this for ages and I found the perfect one at Sportsgirl, super soft and a great fit. Hope everyone had a cracking weekend xx
