The best thing about living in the Southern Hemisphere is being able to know what the main hits will be next season just by checking out what’s currently trending on the other side of the globe. One of the things I’ve been watching out for is the white shirt with blue pinstripes. There’s been a few of them around this summer, but by the time autumn comes around they will probably be everywhere. Sleeveless or with long sleeves, with extra ruffles or some embroidery… You pick!
It’s probably obvious by now that I can’t wait for summer to be over. As much as I love wearing dresses, having to hide from the sun and feeling hot all the time gets old really fast. Though Melbourne weather is generally pretty terrible, with extremely hot summers, there’s one thing I usually hate about it that actually ends up working in my favour: how unreliable it is.
In my quest towards perfecting my personal style I’ve come to realise that the only way to truly evolve is by going out of your comfort zone. The best way I know how to do this is by trying on things I may not have thought would work for me. Case in point: this wrap dress. I saw it hanging on a rack at Dotti, thought it looked more “meh” than cute but decided to take it to the changing room with me anyway.
In the rush (and joy) of these weeks of Christmas and New Years, it’s easy to start wishing for the year to be over already so it can take away with it all the bad things that happened in 2016. A lot of the time we end up forgetting to stop and think back on all the good things that the last twelve months brought us, so in today’s video I wanted to share an exercise that helps you face the holidays with a grateful heart.
