THE POP OF WHITE







We have all seen and worn the all black outfits and I think living in Melbourne, black dominates my wardrobes due to the long winter and sometimes just the moody weather that this beautiful city brings to us.

For the short beautiful summer that we get, I love to live in White. It's a colour that pops. It's like a statement. It's something that makes me feel all girly!
Starting with a white outfit means you can go with any colour to accessorise- bright heels, bags, lipstick, earrings. If that's not convenient, what is?
I bought this white dress from Kookai last week and I knew I wanted it as soon as I tried it. White, off shoulder, pockets- seals the deal for me, lol!!
If you are anything like me, then being able to take the beautiful pieces like these from day to night is very important to you.
For a night look, all you need to add is- a pair of heels and a statement necklace.


Another look I wanted to share with you was with this white skirt that I scored from Kookai as well. I paired it with this white top and a lace bralette. 
Added a pair of nude lace ups and I are ready to rock my brunch date!


If you are someone who doesn't like all white, you can add a little bit of tan to break the whiteness like I did with the crop top and tan heels.




Going on a vacation? Make sure it's a part of your suitcase. 
It's one wardrobe neutral that you won't repent buying. 

Hope I have convinced you enough to add some essential white pieces to your wardrobe.

THE BARGAIN BUYS

Happy New Year 2017 to all my readers.

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday period with your loved ones.
I love this time of the year for it's delicious food, sunny weather and a hearts full of love.

 Like this wasn't enough, this is the season for best discounts and sales. 

I usually don't shop 4-6 weeks before the Christmas period because I know that  good discounts are just round the corner. 
The best sales are after Christmas (no wonder Boxing Day is so popular!). Until a few years ago, I would push and shove my way through shopping centres to get the best deals on Boxing day but slowly I realised that Boxing Day sales are usually extended till the first few weeks of January. The discounts are usually the same or sometimes heavier and the shopping centres aren't that full. 

This year I didn't shop on Boxing day (Husband was super proud!) but waited until after new year to buy myself a few things.

As you all know, I am all about minimal and comfy looks. For me, it's important that most of the things that I buy can earn me multiple looks and I can wear them at work and outside. I don't like buying items that I can only wear on specific occasions and after that they never get to see the light of the day. 

The LBD- 
I treated myself to this underrated black dress that I found extremely pretty- the fabric and the off shoulder were the selling points for me. Oh, and did I mention it was 50% off at Kookai (Yes!!!) #winning.
The Neutral shade comfy lace up block heels found their way into my wardrobe and costed me half of the original prices. #Windsorsmith



The wide legged pants-
The only type of pants missing from my wardrobe until I found these from Sheike on sale for under $70.
I am currently obsessed with Sheike's collection- sale and full priced. Make sure you check it out.
The off shoulder top is from Kookai, and yes it is on sale too in-store.




The T-Look-
My second look with the pants was a little casual. I bought the CK tee for 40% off and the silver mules from Sportsgirl were half price too.




I wanted to share some of these bargain buys in this post as a lot of my friends ask where I shop from. I don't shop from any specific store, I look for what compliments my style and wallet.


A few tips-
  • You need to know the time of the year the brand you like have their sales/ bring out new collection. Follow your favourite brands via Social Media or sign up to their newsletters.
  • Don't buy something just because it's on sale. Even if you have the slightest doubt, just let it go. 
  • Invest in quality over quantity. You will have less items in your wardrobe but the ones you own will make you feel fabulous every time you wear it.


Hope you all enjoyed reading it and are off to shops already to bag some bargains!
