Wearing: Discount Universe sequin top, thrifted blazer, Asos frill neck collar, thrifted jeans and Dr Martens boots.
While I may not be sitting poolside, drinking cocktails and doing other fun summery things I can enjoy wearing jeans without being drenched in sweat and continuing on a layering odyssey. Today's look was inspired by self-proclaimed fashion historian and adult baby Elena Kanagy-Loux (erenanaomi) and master of many looks, the late Prince. I can honestly say wearing a halter top with a frilly collar was hand's down, one of the best decisions I made today.

The pros of dating a local sheep farmer during lambing season are cute photo opportunities, such as this snap below. It's only a matter of time before I invest in a sweatshirt, however impractical, that is as cute and cuddly as these newborn lambs. In case you were wondering, I'm also in favor of apparel which announces I'm in no mood to take anyone's shit.

In the countdown to the release of Jiwinaia's new collection, featuring daisies, ying yangs and razor blades it seemed fitting to revisit the collection which started it all, aptly named 'Get rich or eat peanuts'. I love the quirky designs of each piece, the attention to detail and more importantly, the lack of inhibitions. The motifs of this collection seem more fitting with the life of a teenage girl, on the cusp of womanhood and testing boundaries. The price range of these jewels seems somewhat incompatible with the aesthetic, however, given how beautifully crafted these pieces are, I would say they're worth every dollar. Unfortunately I won't be able to afford anything from the collection anytime soon, but perhaps when the new collection launches I'll have enough money saved up by then. At the very least I have some new make up looks to emulate, joining a long list of make up looks appearing in photo shoots which I have been too afraid to wear myself.

Wearing: POMS earrings, vintage blouse and crochet vest from Tunnel Vision, Kit Neale jacket, vintage Levi's shorts and Dr Martens boots.
I can't quite pinpoint the moment where I abandoned fastidiously colour coordinated outfits, but this sudden change in my habit has happened within the last six months. This can be attributed to having a much smaller wardrobe, but I haven't been able to help myself from buying new bits and pieces. In many ways it feels like colourful outfits, no matter how chaotic and disorganised occur in a much more natural way. Connecting one piece of clothing with another becomes much easier when wearing something as bright as this Kit Neale denim jacket. Perhaps the crochet vest was taking things too far but it's been a while since it last appeared on this blog and goodness knows how long it will be before I can wear it again.
