Boyfriend blazers and bustiers

 




Wild flower playsuit in pink: c/o Pop Cherry Fashion (link here)
Boyfriend blazer: Bardot
Adele lace up heel: c/o Shop Calico (link here)
Clutch: New Look
 
I don't want to jump the gun or jinx myself...but I think it's starting to get a teeny little warmer over here in Sydney! It was still pretty cold for bare legs but kind of bearable actually! I can't wait to wear this super cute bustier playsuit from Pop Cherry Fashion out, without the need for the blazer. I don't usually do strapless (would always prefer to cover my shoulders and arms) but the lightly padded and black trimmed bustier design is flattering enough to sway my opinion :) You can get the playsuit from Pop Cherry Fashion here and it also comes in yellow here!
 
I took out a baggy boyfriend-style blazer for balance over such a mini playsuit like this one. This is probably the most comfy blazer I own (feels like silk!) and I've worn it so many times over tight going-out dresses for something to tone down the look.
 
These lace-up heels are also from Shop Calico, an online boutique that stocks heaps of popular brands such as Cheap Monday, Dolce Vita, Mink Pink and Ladakh! Shop Calico ship worldwide with free US shipping for orders $75 and above :) The shoes are so comfy and instantly add an extra edge to any outfit.

Floral Inclinations


floral romper: c/o YRB Fashion (link here)
Knit jumper: c/o Wish
Mint green satchel bag: Lulus
Elephant necklace: Forever 21

If you're onto a good thing, I say stick to it! Florals are always my favourite staple print and I don't think I could ever amass enough florals for my wardrobe. This may look like a skirt, but it's actually a romper! I just popped a cable knit over the top and now it looks like a brand new skirt :) Don't you just love clothing pieces that can be worn in different ways? The romper by itself is super cute as well and I'll probably take this out again to show off the adorable button detail down the front! It's currently on sale at only 10 pounds on YRB Fashion here.

I've also been wearing this white cable knit from Wish so often lately...the contrast dotted mesh panel down the middle makes it so unique and I've found it to be the perfect layering piece underneath coats and jackets that aren't quite thick enough for these wintry days. I was also gifted this jumper from Wish, from a goodies bag they handed out at a bloggers event a few months back! I'm usually not into goodie bags (or very cynical that I'd find something good in there) but this knit is so wearable and versatile. I also got a portable iPhone charger which I used when I travelled interstate recently- I have to say I was definitely very pleased with that goodie bag haha, thanks Wish! :)

Black Scales

Black scales leggings: c/o BKRM (link here)
(Faux fur) Shaggy vest: c/o Wish
Long sleeve top: Sabo Skirt
Blue clutch: c/o Oasap
 
How funky are these fish scale leggings? Black leggings are always such a staple item for layering, and I was so excited to find a pair that had such interesting detail but was still practical and versatile. The scale pattern definitely adds a subtle extra something when pairing it up with items you'd normally wear with basic black leggings- which is pretty much everything! I would wear these leggings with a baggy tee for a sporty urban look, blazers, baggy knits, or whatever you like. I've been loving textured (faux) furry vests for winter so I wore it together with these leggings.
 
The scale leggings are from BKRM, an online boutique that sells both urban and luxury items! They do free shipping worldwide. PS. you can also receive 5% off anything from BKRM, including sale items! Just use the Promo code METALLICPAWS5. No minimum purchase is necessary and it's valid until 27th July 12am (excluding brands Made in Paradise and Mischa and code can only be used once per customer.)
