Y'all know how I'm like when I see a matching set - it's an instant MUST HAVE IT moment, especially when it comes to Ruby Sees All. It's slowly emerging as one of my favourite Auslabels and I can't wait to see more of whats to come for SS14. The weather is warming up over here and I'm excited for skirts, crops and summer capes.

On another note, I also finally found my mules! I fell in love with ZARA's mules earlier this year but was a few days too late and the shoe was nowhere to be found. Then one day as I was scrolling through The Iconic I noticed a similar pair by Therapy Shoes for a fraction of the price, gosh I love a good bargain! The Iconic stock brands such as Therapy and Spurr that have shoes starting from $20 which is utterly amazing, if you haven't had a browse yet I would highly recommend it if you're always after a bargain like me :)

The Cassandra and Ellery

It's finally warming up in Sydney, HOORAH!! Time to bring out the lace kimonos, mini scuba bodices, skorts and strap sandals!!

Today's hump day outfit flows in order of head-to-toe as beach-to-street. I've been dying to take the Cassandra Lace Cape out for some sun but while the weather is still in-between I've given the TRIANGL bikini a miss and replaced it with it's best friend, the scuba bodice in the form of the Ellery Top by one of my new favourite labels, Black by Geng.

Following from that is a pair of white skorts similar to what you may have seen me wear a few times last season except I've replaced cotton for a leather look. The Leather Look Skorts by Glue Store is my favourite side-step from the traditional skirt because of my pear-shaped body. When you're wider around the hips, it can be a challenge to find a leather skirt with the right fit because many of them are non-stretch. These Glue Store shorts are the perfect fit for the legs with strategic front panels to suit my body shape, it's one of the many little tricks up my sleeve for Spring! What do you think of the Leather Look skorts and all the upcoming new season styles that have been dropping in Glue Stores lately? Yes? No? Would love to hear your thoughts!

And last but not least, the shoes. A rule of thumb many women follow is that the shoes and skirt must be a darker colour than the rest of your outfit in order for things to match but I beg to differ. If your outfit has a feature colour (similar to a feature wall in a room) you should complement it with feature accessories so these Camille Shoes by Wanted Shoes were the perfect cherry on top for me this week! Bring back the strap sandals for Spring I say!!!

When it comes to fashion there are three things I love the most: convenience, comfort and affordability. These three reasons are why I tend to always pick twin sets to slip into on the weekend. Lately I've also been obsessing over box-cut tops and skorts so it seems as though Forcast have read my mind in their latest SS14 drop! I also can't get over the gorgeous pale blue, its just the Spring pop I needed to break up all the monochrome left over from winter.

Ruby Sees All

It's not often I come by a peplum as timeless as it is elegant. This Ruby Sees All dress is in my favourite muted purple with a boned bodice and a beautiful midi length. If you're looking for a dress to impress for this Spring Racewear season, I wouldn't go past Ruby Sees All.

Ruby is definitely the label to watch, I've fallen in love with almost every piece of their Spring/Summer drop and I can't get enough of their unique forward but feminine style.

Lace is known for being feminine, romantic and dainty so this month for Missguided's Embrace The Lace, I decided to take up the challenge of giving lace a lil' edge.... how did I go? Yes? No? Would love to hear your feedback!

I've been dying to take out the culottes which I chose for this ensemble. Once the weather picks up for Spring I'll be living in culottes and midi skirts. They're incredibly comfortable, easy to slip on, appropriate for the workplace and perfect if you haven't had time for leg maintenance yet (or if you're clumsy like me and tend to get bruises all over your legs - see previous outfit post for proof).

Missguided has an amazing range of super affordable clothes, I'll definitely be raiding the site when it gets to festival time and I'd recommend it to all of my lovely readers too :)

Soaking up the sun in this gorgeous transeasonal dress by Dead Ivy, coming soon to The Iconic! 

It was so wonderful to see the sun last weekend, a gentle reminder that Spring is just around the corner and I couldn't wait to put on a midi dress without needing my stockings so as you can see - super happy to take this dress out for a whirl! It's a gorgeous scuba-like material which is perfect for gals on the go with little time to iron or steam and its a great length for work and play. Shoulders can be worn up for the more formal occasions and pulled down for the less formal occasions or a special date ;) 

What do you think of midi dresses for Spring? Yes or no?

Donnadi Maxi Dress by Lace & Whiskey // Photos by Tito Burrito

I find it so interesting how light exposure and lens flares can completely a photograph, even when you're in the same location wearing the same clothing.

Today's outfit features a maxi dress with a criss cross neck, peephole front and side skirt split. It's definitely been a while since I've updated my collection of LBDs and this dress made me realise how much I miss them! Black has always been a closet staple for me, its the most versatile and safe colour so even with the sexy splits, I still felt safe in a wow factor dress.

Make sure you check out Lace & Whiskey for more must haves for Spring around the corner!

If you're anything like me, you'll know that the struggles of a vertically challenged girl in love with midi dresses is real. I would pick a midi dress over a mini dress any day but the only thing that stops me is the length of the dress vs the length of my body.

Different girls wear their midis in different ways, I like wearing mine just pass the knees but I've seen midi dresses look flawless on girls that prefer it just before the knee starts. I've purchased a lot of midis online and much to my dismay... they cut off only a palm's length away from my ankle.. I'm telling you, the struggle is real!! So when I saw this Puzzled Primrose Strapless Dress for the first time, I prepared myself for disappointment...when I tried the dress on, it was instant love heart eyes!

White On White

White on white is known to be a photoworthy combo but is it really practical? Well my general rule is, as long as the top is thick enough to be rain proof and the pants are tailored and can be easily bleached at times of emergency, then you're fairly safe.

As for accessories, I generally prefer silver to be paired with blacks and greys and save my golds and rose golds for the white and other neutral ensembles. Today I slipped on my neverfail gold bangles by The Peach Box which seems to be going with everything lately.

In other news, I'm so excited to see my tram ads finally installed! If you're in the Melbourne CBD any time within the next 3 months, keep an eye out for my artwork on the trams of Melbourne for COOPER ST and Myer ;) definitely something I can tick off my bucket list!!

For the next week or two I do apologise for the gloomy pics. I'm doing my best to keep myself from missing in action by taking cover in warehouses and spots under renovation so there will be a slight change of scenery until the heavy clouds clear!

A few posts ago I mentioned that I'm becoming a little bit more accustomed to pants, particularly cigarette pants with slim fit cuts. Due to my height (or lack thereof) I think slim fit pants and heels are the perfect trick to looking leaner and longer. I've been lucky enough this week to find an all in one slim fit jumpsuit by Three of Something with detachable straps. Its the perfect jumpsuit under a winter coat because of the sweetheart neckline and cut out detail so that your body shape doesn't get lost under all the layers.

On top of my love for slim cut legs, I'm in love with my gold accessories from The Peach Box! Since they're a bit hard to spot in my full length posts, here is one of many close ups to come to show you the gorgeous detail on the Twisted Nail Bangle and the Urban Hardware Bangle.
