Autumn Shade


It is a rather odd thing, thinking about autumn dressing when wearing a bikini top, in 26°C weather but you know that won't stop me from lusting after comfy knits layered over oversized checked shirts, ankle boots and Rose Huntington-Whitely-worthy wooly hats. And because my birthday's in October, let's not forget to add the perfect party outfit to the list of things I'd ideally add to my wardrobe this season. Since coats are not an option for me right now, I'll have to make do with buttery soft metallics, warm shades of tangerine and of course, the perfect pair of winter sunnies - French Riviera problems, right?

Blazer : Topshop | Nailpolish : Essie 'Style Carterl' | Lipstick : Charlotte Tilbury 'Sexy Sienna' | Jumper : H&M | Shirt : House of Fraser | Top : River Island | Skirt : DSsquared2 | Necklace : Ek Thongprasert | Bracelets : Stella & Dot iPhone case : Tory Burch | Bag : Reed Krakoff | Jeans : Paige Denim | Boots : Rag & Bone | Hat : H&M | Sunglasses : Ray-Ban | Shoes : Zara | Watch : Marc by Marc Jacobs | Clutch : Whistles

Splurge vs. Save #1


I'm the first one to admit I spend too much money, way too often. A girl's gotta treat herself, right? Sadly, this excuse only stretches so far so I took it upon myself to find budget-friendly versions of some of my most coveted pieces. And because it wouldn't feel right to keep these for myself, I'm now sharing these with you. Just remember to splurge every once in a while, because... well... a girl's gotta treat herself, right? Alright, alright... You get the idea.
