Formal shopping

Despite being in my second year out of school, the word formal still excites me. Growing up in a westernised society, I spent years fantasising about what my formal would be like; what dress I would wear, who I would take etc so I believe it is only natural that I spent a great deal of my senior years attempting to put such fantasies into action! Either I havent emotionally matured much since then or I'm just destined to be one of those mums who get way too into their daughters Prom plans, but either way whenever I'm talking to one of my year 12 friends about formal, I feel nostalgic and somewhat envious of their pre-formal lives. So when my friend Alex asked me to come formal shopping with her today, I obviously jumped at the opportunity. We decided the best place to start our search was Paddington and we ended up spending the entire day there. Albeit losing focus and buying a collection of $6 nail polish from American Apparel (love sales!!!), we eventually stumbled upon an amazing dress from Zimmerman that is now most definitely on our options list! Another fab find was the cafe 'Jackies' on Glenmore Rd which not only fused possibly the two best food cultures (Japanese and Italian) but furthermore had amazing chai and beautiful decor! Definitely worth the calories! xo 

Reliving my formal days

Sunny Sundays

Whilst Sunday sleep ins are possibly one of the best things ever (followed by Sunday brunch), it's also nice to wake up early on the occasional weekend. This particular Sunday was a beautiful and sunny winter morning, so it called for an early rise! We decided to head to Kirribilli markets, which has one of the most beautiful spots in Sydney! With a full view of the Harbour Bridge, we picked up some lovely purchases, including a vintage Chanel handbag, a cute collared shirt and an oversized cardigan. We also couldn't resist a macaroon (or two!).

After our shopping adventure, we headed to Manly for lunch at one of our fave gourmet burger spots, followed by a mocha and chai latte on the beach! Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays xxx

Despite being Sydney girls through and through, the 4th of July is the perfect excuse to celebrate America, and everything its 52 states have brought into existence; Pop Tarts, Zac Efron, Teen Dramas, Disney and of course, Gossip Girl! Our love of stars (both literally and figuratively) aside, here are some outfits inspired by the U.S of A

Pink Hair

After many months of collecting inspiration pictures of girls with dip dyed hair, I used the end of exams as a perfect opportunity to try it myself! Having pink tips gives outfits an extra edge, and I am pretty happy with the results!
