A new take on monochrome with MINKPINK.

I'm not going to lie, monochrome is an elegant trend and i have no doubt it will return again and again throughout the seasons. But i'll be honest, i'm growing a bit tired of the black white black white black. I need a little.....oomph.
With a hint of blue through the delicate white lace, this crop was just what i needed to add a little colour back into my life, just in time for winter. With my weakness for anything nineties (turtlenecks, butterfly clips and scrunchies) it was only a matter of time before this little Minkpink number caught my eye. It's funny how things fall off the radar, only to emerge a couple of decades later. With a high neck and front zip, this crop is the perfect piece to jazz up a standard monochrome outfit.
 Who said the colder months had to be dull?

Add Colour

Wearing The Shanti Butterfly dress, Black Fedora hat from ThreeOfive and Verali heels.

If there's two things i can't get enough of at the moment it's hats and statement dresses.
We all know i've never been the biggest fan of maxi dresses but that was until i came across the new Autumn/Winter Collections ftom The Shanti Butterfly. With all of the stunning prints and mesh combo's you're left with your spirits soaring and quite a few new dresses ready to be purchsed in your online shopping cart.
With such a statement piece, there's no need to over-accessorise. A plain black hat, soft wavy hair  and a bold red lip strikes the perfect balance between casual and elegant. 
It is all about the contrasting after all.

Weekend Elements

April 6th, the day that the clocks turn back and the nights become darker much, much earlier. The whispy breeze becomes more brisk and you find yourself reaching once again for that woolen coat. I've always felt the cold, even in the middle of summer so a big winter coat is an essential in my wardrobe. This season it's all about the long, oversized coats. I prefer mine belted subtly to create the true hourglass form that would otherwise be hidden under so many layers.
I love the elegance that this Tulip coat brings to an outfit. Pair it with a a-line skirt, trousers or  a simple LBD like this... I'm sure i'll be trying them all throughout the season.

Pilgrim's AW14 Collection has everything a girl could want to create the perfect winter wardrobe, i already have my eye on a few pieces myself! To shop the collection head over to their website www.pilgrimclothing.com.au

Where the magic happens

Dress - MINKPINK, Jewelry - Lovisa

I've been dreaming of spring time. Especially over the last few weeks as the days have started to grow shorter, and colder. So what do I do as soon as we get a mild day? Head to the beach. 
Roald Dahl once said 'Those who don't believe in magic will never find it'. This is where I search. On the beach in the afternoon sunlight, soaking up the warm rays through my little MINKPINK dress and watching families dancing in the shallows in front of me.
Australian beaches.....                                      
                                                                  This is where the magic happens.
