spring, summer & pastels .

I tend to have random spurts of inspiration to post and in this case it’s because I have insomnia….my fault of course! note to self; stop napping after work to then wake up 6 hours later and then procrastinate in applying St Tropez fake tan. did i mention its 4:30am here in Australia!?

The weather is warming up fast and we’re starting to see the layers of clothes disappear – slowly being replaced by ripped shorts and flowy dresses . It’s even almost time to put the fake tan back in the cupboard and gladly replace it with natural sun kissed skin. I can’t help but get excited about the upcoming season and the trends it will bring .

It seems that throughout spring and summer we will see fabrics adorned with vivid colours, as well as soft neutrals and pastels – in particular, soft mint green has proved popular on the runway and on the likes of fashion icons such as Jessica Stein & Nicole Warne . We’re also seeing red as a prominent colour, lace and crochet tops, and not to mention floral prints still remain on the racks . I feel that when it does come to floral prints you need to be careful that you don’t end up looking like a flower threw up everywhere, my recommendation is to veer in the direction of Zimmermann, you can’t go wrong with their floral prints, they just utter perfection .

Today I learnt how to wash my own car – a chore not complex for some but I’ve always just paid someone $25 to do the job for me . I started the day having breakfast with the boy, appropriately dressed in little ankle booties with a fist full of rings . to then ending up in Chuck Taylor’s, a knitted sweater and soapy water spraying in my face . At least he vacuumed it for me 🙂

Zimmermann, bluebell & spring .

Scored this baby for $130 rather than $450…gotta love the Zimmermann outlet! I must admit its hard to wear because the print is so memorable…still beautiful though!
