Spring Lusting

Just when I think I have finally bought all that i want for the coming season, I realise that Im a fool, because to be honest, Ill never be satisfied with my wardrobe. There is ALWAYS something to add, and I mean always!! I can however say I am impressed with how much I do have in my wardrobe that I am happy with. Usually its a case of "nothing to wear", but I am happy with my selection. Dont hold your breath for long though.

At the moment I am loving anything that feels like Ive been living in Byron Bay for too long. So straw, cream materials and ripped denim is fantastic. Thankfully I have all the pieces in my wardrobe to acheive my staple 2011 summer look but ofcourse I dont like to stick to one style all the time, so I need to find some additions to mix it up.


Basically anything white is great. A white knee length dress and a white maxi dress is on the list, because come on, what else screams summer more? I would love to pair with denim or bright coloured coverups and wedges and bright BRIGHT jewellery.

I am still deciding on the necisity of this next one, but a tutu inspired skirt would be a cute addition. With a white or black fitted singlet and wedges, this could definately be staple evening outfit for me. Also in the necisity list is a navy stripe top. I think it would go amazing with white shorts, gold sandals, bright necklace and aviators for a relaxed day time look. I just cant seem to find the perfect fit though. The one in my collage below is pretty much exactly what im aiming for.

Covering up in summer is difficult because its too damn hot to wear anything too heavy but ive noticed that Kimono Jackets are big this year. The one below in the collage is exactly what I want. Ofcourse paired with anything denim, this would look amazing, so im on the hunt for this. Also I am wanting a cream or white blazer to smarten up some extemely casual outfits. Thinking paired with denim shorts, floral top and sandals.

Lastly I am really keen to find a white loose cropped jumper to wear at night. I think paired with denim shorts, this look would be perfect for sunset BBQs around the pool or beach. Especially if you can see a peek of a bikini underneath.

I cannot wait for summer!!!

Nailed It

If you ask my house mate about nail polish, you will find out that I am absolutely obssessed with changing mine up every few days. Several times a week, she will walk out to the lounge room to see my painting my nails a new colour. I cant stand having the same thing for too long- call it ADD but I like to mix it up. Nothing feels fresher to me than a new coast of polish.

I hate winter nail polish, i find it boring and predictable, and tend to be sneaky by wearing creams and whites on my nails, so as not to be too drab, but not too "summery". So now that we are heading into summer, I can finally bring out my bright colours and go mad.

At the moment I have been loving this awesome tangerine colour, that bordering a warm red. The colour is so flattering and goes amazing with a tan. I also like to fall back to my lilac polish by mode as I know it always suits what I wear. I have also been playing around adding glitter to my ring fingers for something different.

This summer I am going to be stepping out of my comfort zone of pinks/reds and trying pale blues, mints, pale yellows and oranges.

Emmys 2011

Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime (..10pm) to watch the Annual Primetime Emmys awards.

Whilst Modern Family absolutely slammed the other TV shows in most award categories, as always, I was more keen to check out the fashion from the night. Red was a dominant colour on the night but my eye was drawn to the more delicate dresses in rare colours. Below are my picks for best dressed from the Emmys 2011.

Summer 2011

Summer is creeping up quickly on us here in Australia and a couple of people have been asking me what to look out for to wear this season.

This season is all about the 70's. Think lace, brights, boho, denim and organza skirts. Below is a collection of pieces that I scouting out for in the shops at the moment and I believe you should be wearing this Summer 2011.

Perfection

The weather at the moment is unbelievably beautiful. There is hardly a cloud in the sky and the breeze is warm. You can definately feel that we are moving closer to summer. I have also noticed that Im not needing as many layers as I used to about a month ago. Ive stopped wearing jackets and sticking to longer sleeved tops and with jeans, or adding a cardigan to shorter sleeved tops. This weekend we are going to be hitting near 26 degrees celsius which mean you will most definately find me sunning on the beach.

This outfit is pulled together with my Jay Jays black skinny jeans, Tightrope white lace shirt, Valleygirl denim vest and Rubi brown sandals. I finished the look off with a brown necklace and diamond look earrings from Equip.

Thursday = Perfect



Salad....But Different

I know I dont usually post about food on here but I had to share my new discovery with the whole entire world... Broccoli and Ham Salad!

I used the base recipe from Savoury Sweet Life and then altered it a little. Firstly I steamed the broccoli slightly so it wasnt too crunchy (I like my Broccoli cooked), then instead of bacon, I used lean ham. I left out the cranberries and sunflower seeds (because I dont like them), and for the dressing I used a low carb ranch from the Paul Newman range found at Coles.

It tasted amazing!!!

And even thought the below picture that I took on my phone, doesnt do it any justice; Im sure you can agree that this salad could easily become a weekly favourite- and its good for the thighs too ;)

Ch Ch Changes...

Notice anything different?- Id be worried if you didnt :)
I decided to change my layout and design for my blog. I was bored of the other one and I think this one is more fresh and pretty. I can also change the background to coincide with seasons etc so I will never get bored again!

What do you think?

Scavengers

This past weekend was our small group social event. We had an awesome lunch at the local surf club, which over looked the beach. It was such a pretty day too. When we finished lunch, we were given a scavenger hunt challenge. It involved us driving around the city and ticking challenges off a list. First one back to church won. We had an absolute ball! We had things such as taking photos of landmarks, receipts for 2L of petrol, and singing to a stranger for 10 seconds with video evidence.

It seemed the scavenger bug spread, because the following day when I was picked up by my friends for a coffee/catchup, we tried the Iphone version called Geocaching for fun. Apparently people all around the world have this app, and they hide things and leave clues and theres millions to be found. Your mobile acts as a GPS and gives you hot/cold signals. I couldnt believe this actually existed and I can garrauntee that this will be an activity that will be undertaken quite abit by my friends in the near future. The below outfit is what i wore when we went Geocaching. Probably not the best thing to wear whilst scouring shrubbery but I so badly wanted to wear my new skirt- and in my defense I didnt realise I would be hunting :)

Song of the moment: Super Bass by Nicki Minaj
