Tiny Matters

'PU leather halter neck dress': c/o Lookbookstore (here)
Red jacket: Bardot (old)
Cuff: Lovisa

This is an old look that I didn't get a chance to post until now! The weather was warm enough to bare my legs back then and the leaves still had their red and orange autumn hues...now all the trees are bare sticks and don't look half as pretty in the background! 

I got this dress from Lookbookstore which has a contrast halter neck and PU leather skirt mixed into one! This would be the perfect dress to take for a night out- just add some accessories and your look is complete. The little black dress always serves as a no-brainer when it comes to dressing up for an event, and with the leather contrast and asymmetrical cut you can be sure your look is never boring.

I've been under the weather and nursing a sore throat at the moment- I hate it when it hurts to talk or eat! Luckily I've quite a strong immune system since I eat healthy and exercise regularly :) I can't wait to get back into exercise though when I'm better. I walked up the stairs from the train station today and just doing that made my throat feel super red and dry :(

Winter Wardrobe with Boohoo

Today's entire outfit is brought to you by Boohoo! Boohoo have been one of my favourite British online stores in the last few years because everything is just so ridiculously affordable and on-trend- and I was super excited when they contacted me to do a Winter Wardrobe challenge! Now that the coat is on sale, the whole outfit comes down to only $154AUD in total. I think that's an incredible deal especially when you know a single piece (whether it be the coat, jeans or shoes) could already retail at over $100 elsewhere.

I've really been digging the long line coat trend as of late- it's versatile, warm and flattering! This one from Boohoo comes in 'one size' which means you can lend it to a friend or your mum when you're not wearing it :) The colour I chose was 'stone' but I'm also lusting after it in grey, charcoal and pink! I honestly could not get enough of this coat and in the meantime I actually placed an order for another similar coat here (but in camel colour this time!) I can't wait to receive it!

It was so ridiculously cold that day (Aussies will know what I mean when I say we're going through an arctic vortex!) and being by the water made things even icier. I should've put a smile on my face in the photos but it was that unbearably cold that day...next time I'll look happier I promise! :)

Turtleneck Game





Long sleeve turtleneck top: Kookai
Lace up heels: c/o Shop Calico
Biker faux leather pants: Bardot
Ok someone needs to stop me from buying any more turtlenecks...my wardrobe is getting completely dominated by pretty high necklines in different colours fitting snugly around the tops of all my hangers. As someone who embraces functionality and is always a fan of killing two birds with one stone, I love the fact you can throw a turtleneck knit on during winter and not have to bother with a scarf! :)
As you may or may not already know from my blog I'm a little bit obsessed with Kookai, and they did a 50% off sale recently which came way too late for me because all the things I wanted to get I had already bought at full price haha. I did however pick up this luscious red top for only $30 (reduced from $100 originally). 

I also watched the 'Minions' movie on the weekend with my sister! Usually the case is she picks a movie I'm completely not interested in/unaware of and I'm always being forced to watch it as her dutiful movie companion. Luckily 'Minions' seemed to be right up my alley and I can understand the craze over these adorable yellow pill-shaped things- I need to book an appointment with my sis to see Despicable Me now! :)
