Colour of Happiness


Floral printed Pink kimono: c/o AX Paris (link here)
top: c/o Chictopia Shop (link here)
White wedges: Lipstik
Blue bezel bracelet: c/o Little Doux Jewels (link here)

There's no denying that pink is one of my favourite colours! There's a theory that colours produce certain psychological effects and pink apparently evokes happiness, love and calmness. Although I personally think that colours will have individualised effects depending on whether you're fond of the colour or not haha, I do tend to love pink (and all things girly and feminine it seems :)) This pink and white floral kimono from AX Paris is the perfect spring piece with a beautiful fresh and happy colour scheme, and a flowy carefree shape!
 
I paired the kimono with a new top kindly gifted from Chictopia Shop as well. I'm sure a lot of you guys have posted looks on Chictopia before (an online style community to show off your looks!) but have you checked out their shop before? :) I found this adorable crop top there at only $21 with free shipping- such a steal! I love the intricate perforations and scalloped hem design. Another great spring piece that looks perfect paired with denim cut offs for a breezy casual look :)

Plaid and Leather

Jacket with leather sleeves: c/o Style Moi (link here)
Satchel bag: ChaceyLove

I'm going for a bit of a preppy look in this outfit! I've been really getting into plaid lately, especially in a cute minidress like this one from Pop Cherry Fashion for a flirty and fun look with a 90s throwback. I wore it for a pop of colour inside this super cool camel trench coat with contrast leather sleeves from Style Moi! I'm so glad the crazy winds are easing off and hopefully this is the last photoshoot we have with my hair blowing all over the place! It's so hard to capture a good photo as a result, makes me want to lop all my hair off haha...
 
I feel like I'm dressed for uni or college with the preppy vibe (satchel bag with laptop included), but thankfully I'm finished with all of that! :) People are always surprised that I've done a law degree but I have no plans to go into a career in law. I don't think what you study (even if it was for 5 years with my law degree!) defines what you make of your life...there are so many things out there to dabble in, rather than blindly following the path that makes the most money or has the greatest job security. To me it's so much more important to lead a meaningful and enjoyable life!

Crystal Eyes

Style Stalker 'Got Game' pants: c/o BKRM (currently sold out)
Top: Forever New
Blazer: Nasty Gal
Shoes: Lulus
Jewelled necklace: Colette Accessories
Quilted clutch: Forever New
Royal blue arty ring: YSL
It's been a while since I've worn a pair of bold printed pants! I almost forgot what a powerful statement they can make, especially when the print is so interesting and dynamic as these ones by Style Stalker. They feature a funky blue and white geometric crystal print that is only more intriguing the more you look at it. It was also a pleasant surprise to feel how comfortable they were to wear as well, with the material being really soft and slightly stretchy.

This is a look you can take to work as well! Dress from head to toe in varying shades of blue and white for a classy colour palette that's striking yet office-appropriate. I wear this periwinkle silk-like tee from Forever New to absolute death at work.

These pants are currently sold out on BKRM now, but they still stock other amazing pieces by Style Stalker as well here (https://www.bkrm.com/en/shop/ladies/urban/?designer%5B%5D=STYLESTALKER), not to mention a whole heap of other labels such as Staple the Label, Lazy Oaf, Cameo and more :) Don't forget you can still receive 5% off anything from BKRM including sale items! Just use the Promo code METALLICPAWS5. No minimum purchase is necessary and the code is valid until 27th July 12am (excluding brands Made in Paradise and Mischa and code can only be used once per customer.)
