When it comes to May, you know that the year has made progress. For me, May is the in-between month that is prolonging the wait to the busy mid-year stuff that always seem to occur annually. In Melbourne, it represents a quick window of opportunity when wearing jackets isn’t such a necessity, so I try to maximise this occasion.
This year I am once again pulling out the over-the-knee socks, because to put it bluntly I love them to death. My online shopping carts are full of them in all different colours and patterns, and if only my budget allowed it I would purchase them all. They are kind of useless to wear during the especially cold days, however for May days like these they are perfect with shorts or a skirt.
Shorts- Forever New
Bag- Forever New
Belt- Cotton On
Oh, and I realise that the last time I blogged was too long ago. When my busy schedule allows it, I will try and update it as soon as I can!
As soon as summer in Melbourne is officially over, the days of 30+ degrees decided to breeze along to create an unusually warm start to March, particularly over the long weekend. I spent a night at the beach to enjoy the heat and hazy sunset, which was far better than spending the night in a hot house that lacked ice-cream.
For my outfit, I used a polka-dot scarf as a belt simply because I couldn’t find my white belt, and it actually produced a nice effect. The main component of my outfit is actually the bag-which is (ahem) new- and my entire ensemble was formed around the bag. Why did I leap at this bag as soon as I saw it? Well ladies and gents, if you haven’t received the memo, monochrome is one of this season’s major trends. Yes that’s right, wearing straight out black and white is enough to be considered seriously chic at the moment. So naturally I decided that I had to get me some form of this basic colour combination, and I did not need to look any further than this bag, which was actually very reasonably priced.
