Shopping with Etsy

'Wonderland' playsuit: c/o St. Frock
Cardigan: Boohoo
Shoes: Boohoo

I can never get enough of playsuits! Another spring has come around again which means time to stock up on even more cute rompers/playsuits/whatever you like to call them. Two-piece sets are really popular right now and I love how this one from St Frock kind of has a 'faux' two-piece look (which is also reallly good at hiding those big lunch bulges). I can't believe I'm wearing these shoes from Boohoo again - I'm just so obsessed with them! The nude colour goes perfectly with anything I'm wearing and the lace-up detail is so on trend at the moment.

Also thanks SO much for all your lovely comments and liking my blog photos! I'm really flattered because I want to keep taking photos by myself with a tripod and remote, as I'm a pretty independent person and don't want to rely too heavily on someone else to take photos for me. My mentality is that if someone else can do it, then I want to learn how to do it myself! Of course I still love taking photos with other photographers as it's so fun combining creative powers together, and plus you can only lug around all your heavy camera gear to a limited extent!

Zodiac disc necklace: c/o 'JENNY and JUDE' shop from Etsy (in rose gold)

I also received this gorgeous unique necklace from Etsy! One of the main reasons I like to hop onto Etsy sometimes is for the unique, quirky and customised items I can find for practically any category! I already have a lot of jewellery but there's something so great about wearing something meaningful and unique to your personality.

I do share a lot of the typical Aquarius traits and when I found this adorable little store called JENNY and JUDE that sold custom zodiac sign jewellery, I had to get an Aquarius disc necklace for myself. I was even able to select the length, star sign (obviously!) and material, whether it be rose gold fill, gold fill or sterling silver. I chose 18 inch length and rose gold which is my favourite! :)

As I was browsing, I found so many other cute stores on Etsy that sold zodiac-themed accessories:

  1. 'Zodiac disc necklace' from 'JENNY and JUDE' (the necklace I got!)
  2. 'Zodiac constellation dip dye drawstring bag' from HONEYTRAPSTORE
  3. 'Zodiac constellation silk scarf' from Andrea Silk
  4. 'Zodiac sign phone case' from Case Cavern

It was so fun browsing all the different selections and I couldn't believe all the variety and handmade talent and creativity on Etsy, that I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. I love to support little independent businesses and I have watched Etsy being used a platform for exactly that and flourish immensely over the years.

Have you guys ever shopped on Etsy before? What kind of unique items do you like to get?

Mint To Be

 Crepe crop skater dress in Mint: c/o ASOS 
3D panelled chain bag: c/o ASOS
Heels: Lulus (similar here)
'Intersteller charm & chain set': c/o BaubleBar

I'm always struggling to make my photos look more interesting, as I take most of the ones on my blog myself with a tripod and not really anywhere in a fancy location. However one night I decided to trial out a sunrise shoot the next morning, and took these pics at around 6am to see how they would turn out. I love to capture the warm, dreamy glow of a sunrise or sunset, and especially the backlighting on hair when the sun is behind a subject! I think this is turning into a surprising habit (see my last post here featuring a sunrise shoot)...and I’m quite happy with how the photos turned out :)
I'm also wearing this lovely necklace from BaubleBar! It’s called the ‘Intersteller charm and chain set’ and features four beautiful charms: a key, moonbeam, a pyramid spike and tassle. They all come in 14k golden plated metal so they’ll stay shiny and pristine for a long time. 
All the charms even came individually wrapped in their own little bags with bubble wrap sheets for everything! I love little touches like that because it ensure the metal pieces don’t rub against each other during shipping and handling (as well as avoiding the dreaded necklace tangling!)
You can even build your own charm pendant at BaubleBar! There are so many pretty little charms to put together or you can choose from a prestyled set. I was already taken away by the gorgeous four-piece arrangement in the ‘Intersteller charm and chain set’ so I chose this one! :)

All About Rust

'Valerie' dress in Rust: c/o Fashion Nova
Leopard print sunnies: c/o Oscar Wylee
'Bethany' handheld Bag in Matte Stone: c/o Paul's Boutique
I've already expressed my love for rust colours before (see my blog post wearing a rust coat), and I still can't get enough of it! Rust, amber, and burnt orange have all been big for autumn, but I've found the colour translates so well into the warmer months as well.
Sometimes I find some of the simplest outfits make the biggest impact! This plain midi dress from Fashion Nova has a simple design, but the rust shade, high neckline and bodycon fit all make it such a statement piece that needs only minimal accessorising to make it a complete outfit. Even better is I find that dress is soo comfortable! It fits like a glove and is such a bargain at only $27.99.
I also received this gorgeous new bag from Paul's Boutiquea premium brand founded from London and has now expanded worldwide. I had been searching for a nude or light beige coloured bag for easy accessorising during summer months with lighter outfits, and this one was perfect! I love the simple structured shape and the matte finish is so soft and smooth.
