chevron cuts

"Zig Zag" chevron print blazer: SaboSkirt (link here)
Pastel purple tee: Forever New
Skort: c/o Sheinside (link here)
Clear box clutch: c/o Choies  (link here)

I know this skort is all over the blogosphere at the moment- don't hate me too much for presenting yet another outfit featuring it? :) Although its originality and uniqueness has been diluted by its huge presence in the fashion world (and I won't lie, from its knock-offs like this one), I still find the angled cut very special and interesting. Even better is that it's a winner in terms of practicality- it looks like a skirt but makes it carefree to sit down in and walk in windy conditions, because it's actually shorts underneath!

I love the chevron patterns on my new Sabo Skirt blazer as well, and even better that they have beautiful digital prints on them! I thought it was a perfect match for the skort, because the hem is sort of cut in the same chevron shape.

I also couldn't help but get my hands on the quintessential clear clutch, from Choies! It's a bit odd to have a fashion item that doesn't have any colour or design to itself- but rather provides another dimension for viewing the things you have behind or inside the clutch, if you know what I mean! I just find this clear box clutch so futuristic and fascinating. The only tough thing is making sure you have pretty things inside all the time- I didn't have time to collate a bunch of beautified travel essentials so for now I just kept my Raybans inside for viewing :)

And how great has the weather in Sydney been lately? The sun has been shining and warm especially in the afternoons- I hope it stays that way! :) Can you even tell it's winter in these photos?

And thank you so much guys for the positive feedback on my last blog post, featuring my answers to FAQs about diet and fitness!! The post got really long and I realised that I did spend a lot of time on it, and I appreciate that some of you actually acknowledged that. I really appreciated as well all the interesting and supportive comments. My hope for the blog post was to be educational about a healthy lifestyle, as well as inspire people to have a positive and loving attitude towards their body, and it makes me so happy knowing that these goals were achieved with some of you guys!

  19. Great look hun, you look fab in the "skorts"! I bought the biggest size from Sheinside and they dont fit, they must be made for tiny people - so frustrating! I'll let you rock them instead haha.

  22. I still really want that skort, but in black (of course!)... It sold out in Zara & I was gutted, but it never even occurred to me to check if there were copies of it from other stores, definitely going to check that out! I love the whole geometric theme going on here with the angular edges of the skort & the zigzags on the jacket, the print & colours are so pretty too.
