sequin lust


i have a girlfriend's 21st this weekend and i've decided to finally purchase an aje catara cut out skirt.. but which colour?? decisions, decisions... #firstworldproblems, i know. but help me out guys, i'm completely stuck. for the record, i have olive skin and i'm a brunette. i'd be wearing them with my favourite tony bianco heels and a silk zimmermann tank (i have a few colours.. orange, white & blue).

summer buys

As I sit here in this gloomy, rainy, windy weather, I compiled a list of a few items that i'm looking forward to wearing this summer.. and it's made me happier already!
Nick Campbell Stringer Sunglasses: I've been wearing the same Ray-Ban aviators for 3 years and I still love them to death. Having said that, I'd love to have another pair to switch them around with. These NC shades popped up on Harper & Harley's blog and I instantly fell in love with the shape. They're like wayfarers with a seriously cool cat-eye twist.
Ksubi Cee Cee Roll Denim Shorts: As per usual, I'll be wearing denim shorts all summer long, so obviously I need one or two new pairs to add to my collection. I'd been finding it impossible to find a nice fitting pair that weren't shredded and frayed down the bottom, so i love the clean fold of these.
Seafolly Limited Edition Florance Bikini: We finally have limited edition in stores!! It's so exciting and it's so incredibly beautiful. If you haven't dropped by your local Seafolly store lately, get by and check it out. Limited edition is made from the most luxurious fabrics, the most gorgeous of prints and the cuts are simply divine. Check out the back detailing on the maxi dresses in the collection, it'll have you dreaming of long summer nights. 
Friend of Mine Lafayette Knit Dress: This dress couldn't be further from my typical kind of style. Yet as soon as I saw it all I could think about was how cool it would look in summer, with a sick pair of shades and my zimmermann cap and a nice pair of sandals. Summer casual at it's best.
Shakuhachi Raw Edge Racer Jersey Maxi Dress: On the contrary, this dress is definitely more my typical style. I'm a sucker for a good maxi dress and if it's mint, count me in. The racer back detailing is just an added bonus. It's filled with cool, drapey, summery goodness.
Watson x Watson 'X' Sandals: Love me some sandals. These ones tick all the boxes for me; a neon hit, based on tan, some criss cross detailing and a little buckle clasp. Super cute and super sexy all at the same time.

hat swag


i've never been much of a hat person, but lately i've found quite a few that have been catching my eye. not enough to make a purchase just yet, but enough for me to take a second glance and consider the possibility. this was all until i laid eyes on these divine zimmermann caps. aren't they gorgeous? i'm thinking of getting one in the floral and one in the leopard print - if that doesn't show you how much i love them then nothing will! and they're only $45. not a bad price point for a gorgeous zimmermann print that i can envision myself wearing all through summer. my uniform during summer is denim shorts, sandals and a white muscle tee, but i can see these gorgeous caps adding a very special something to my favourite combination.
