The Contrast Calibre

(Contrast colour-block asymmetric top - by Ottoman, Racer back basic tank - from Kookai, Waist high chinos - from Zara, Steel choker - from Sportsgirl, Platforms - from Rubi Shoes, Envelope clutch - from Bardot, MAC lipstick - Morange)

It's been long-due since my last post and since then Tim and I have been finding very little time to squeeze in the opportunity for a shoot at all, with such conflicting schedules. I've been juggling final major assessments at uni, attending important events such as baby showers, birthdays, mothers day and so forth, and last but not least, I've also been jumping between new jobs to even find the time to sit behind a screen. And in less than a week I never knew I would have landed an amazing career opportunity at Sydney's Flagship Burberry store. So everything has been all topsy turvy, but all so rather exciting! So I'm really looking forward to begin work as of next week, but will definitely keep you guys posted on my progression with the company.

But anyway, I manage to pick up an amazing contrast assymmetric top by Ottoman at Sydney's Fashion Weekend last Friday out with the girls. The bold colour contrast is a trend I've been hunting more styles of for this season. Collaborating with simple cuts and bold accessories makes it the ultimate simplistic, chic look. Not too over the top, yet its not too under dressed, but just a balanced style for the metropolitan girl.

Cooling Wilderness

(Crochet cropped boat neck sweater - Thrifted Vintage, Pleated shorts - from ASOS, Faux fur vest - from Sportsgirl, Faux fur barrel bag - from Bardot, Buckle boost - from Hong Kong boutique, Coral marble ring - from H&M, Silver crucifix necklace - from Sportsgirl.)

The climate has drastically turned cooler in Sydney and with such a miserably wet summer this year round, I'm so over it already and I haven't felt more eager for winter to hit sooner. To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of the cold, although I am rather excited with bringing back layering again during this season... Fashion is generally always better in winter in my opinion anyway. 

You can't go wrong with cropped sweaters and a decent pair of highrise bottoms and pleats have always been a classic girly addition. As for faux fur, it's really the all essential must-have in any wardrobe for winter. Continuing on with my recent love for texture blocking, I've consistently been collaborating plenty of eye-catching coloured pieces to brighten up the classic, yet dull, winter neutrals. As I've once mentioned before, who said colours are only for S/S? I think that an odd clash of colour is the perfect addition to fight winter blues! On a side note: with talks of utilizing coloured brights for winter, I've been keeping my eyes open for neon's and ombre shaded pieces to add to my wardrobe. The inspiration came to me a while back browsing on when I randomly came across a neon ombre blazer, plus a pair of matching slacks set. beofre I could haul the neon ombre blazer, it was a shame that the set was snapped up way too quickly and sold out. So, if anyone has come across anything neon or ombre colouring pieces out there then I would love to hear and see more of it, as it is currently on my hot-list!

But anyway, once again I tend to thrive in living in 'comfort' ensembles. It was perfect for when I was visiting Tim lover the weekend before we decided to take a spontaneous trek around his hood where all the luscious greenery is the norm haha. Sometimes I forget how much further away he lives from me and how different our local neighborhoods are like in comparison, which is probably why shooting around his local is much more appealing than mine haha.
