Nothing says Parisian chic more than bright red combined with stripes! Every now and then I feel a bit stumped for outfit ideas but luckily there are some combos that just always work. The French coined the concept of a 5-piece wardrobe of basic essentials that you could mix and match and wear absolutely forever. In my opinion I would add stripes to a culled-down wardrobe (if I ever had to) because you can wear them all season and for all ages.

St. Frock never disappoint with their outerwear selection...I'm finding so many perfect pieces for the cooler weather in Sydney! This waterfall cardigan is such a beautiful shade of red, and comes with a ribbon that you can tie around your waist when it's too cold to wear open.
These ripped jeans from Stelly Clothing are even better that they're high-waisted, because that means I can pair them with not just torso-length tops but also crop tops. PLUS- high-waisted pants + matching colour heels is the ultimate sneaky leg-lengthening trick! ;)

Boho Bonita

Black lace kimono: c/o Light in the Box (here)
'Cielo' boots: Nasty Gal
Necklace: eBay

I'm having a serious newfound love of neutral shades! Light grey is such an understated colour and it works perfectly on this adorable little playsuit from Coocha Designs. It's perfect for summer with the cute little crochet trim on the sides and lightweight fit, but also fantastic for transeasonal weather with a light cardigan thrown on top. This playsuit actually comes with a belt that you can tie on the side (see how the model did it here). It's currently on sale, so don't miss out :)

I can't get enough of this sexy little black lace kimono either! I think lace has such a beautiful texture and pattern and with a loose, breezy kimono it can add the perfect touch of femininity and elegance. My black one is from Light in the Box here.

I had such a great past couple of days! I was invited to a free hotel stay at a beautiful quirky little hotel called Medusa in Darlinghurst (in exchange for Instagram promo) and had a wonderful day with amazing breakfast, great time at the Museum of Contemporary Art (I love checking out art!!), great company and I watched Mad Max which I loved to pieces!! My jaw was literally open the whole time and I kept on realising it by accident and having to consciously close it. I'm going to hunt down all the old ones as I had never watched them before. And then today I spent most of the day doing a photoshoot and checking out a gardening store which I had a lot of fun in! :)

New Boots

Skort: c/o Tobi.com 
'Iris' boots: Witchery (here)

I'm so excited about these new OTK (over the knee) boots! They're probably my biggest splurge for a very, very long time. The great thing about them is that I feel like they keep my legs warm enough without having to worry about stockings or wearing jeans. That means I can still embrace skorts and skirts- don't need to tuck them away just yet!

Another winter staple is the anorak jacket. This one from Stelly is the perfect dark khaki colour that makes it great for throwing over all your autumn outfits. I'm trying to experiment this winter with playing with neutral colours such as khaki, grey, camel, beige etc...what I've learnt is that despite not having bright bold colours you can let an outfit shine with an interesting texture or print. I love how with cold weather layering I'm able to incorporate ribbed texture (my turtleneck), suede (these boots) and bold grid print (this skort) all in one hit!
