One of my favourite colours in the world is blue, and I have clothes in all hues ranging from pastel baby blues to turquoise, to cobalt and midnight blue! I'm especially drawn to periwinkle, which is this particular shade in between purple and blue (this coat from Review is actually a little more purple than in the photos!) I love to collect coats in all sorts of pretty pastel shades, as they help you stand out amongst all the dreary blacks and dark tones when winter comes along.

One piece of great news this week is that my boyfriend and I got a car together a few days ago! It was such a spontaneous decision where we saw one we liked, went for a test drive, and that was it! We now have a Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance so it's sporty enough but also has all the great safety features (to appease me). Personally this year has been full of big expenses with travel and now with the car, which have been draining my savings but I'm happy and excited to be taking more risks, as well as learning to enjoy life in the present rather than constantly worrying about the future.

Be My Lover

I've always wanted to wear a piece by Lover, especially after stepping into their store at the Strand in Sydney and seeing the magic of their gorgeous AW16 collection 'Journey' in real life. I don't think I've seen any other fashion label do lace as well as Lover do, and not in so many elegant and feminine cuts and colours. Lover are at the higher end of the price scale so they haven't exactly been within my grasp, but thanks to Her Wardrobe I've been able to get my hands on one to wear!

Her Wardrobe offers a large range of beautiful designer dresses for rent (you can choose a 4 day or 8 day time frame, ie. enough for the two weekends) which I think is a great idea, because frankly, can you really justify forking out up to $1000 on a single dress you wear for one event? And even if you keep it, you don't really want to wear the same thing again to another event. It just makes so much sense to wear a range of beautiful designer pieces to different occasions, take loads of photos on the night to show it off, and then return it (saving lots of money and wardrobe space in the process).

I'm so glad to be on the road to recovery after my bronchitis, thanks so much for the well wishes everyone! It's been great to hit the gym for the first time in ages yesterday and start feeling healthy again.

Stripes and Sandals

Taking a little detour from my Japan diaries, to show my new favourite playsuit from Showpo! I never say no to stripes, especially not to such a versatile piece you can dress up or down. The asymmetric cut below the waist also breaks the playsuit up and adds a bit of drama! It's still pretty warm in Sydney so I'm going to make the most of this lightweight summery playsuit before it's back to thick heavy layers.

I'm currently still sick with bronchitis (it's been more than 2 weeks now) and the symptoms are doing their rounds between a runny nose, persistent cough, headaches and soreness. Sometimes I can't wait to wake up the next morning and see which fun symptom it will be the next day...:) I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
