So...long, flowing, pretty, maxi skirt is what I get excited about these days. Better yet, make it a plisé and I go totally weak at the knees. I like it styled with oxfords or boots for a not-too-feminine look but last Tuesday I wore mine with pointy d'orsay pumps to work and by golly it looked awesome.
Get the look:
Zara maxi skirt, Alexander Wang scuba jumper, Chloé studded boots, Rebecca Minkof Sammy bag, Fay Andrada Rele bracelet. Also these boots are worth consideration.

It made me think about my favourite colours and for a little while I felt somewhat bland. My favourite colour is grey marle followed by black, white and navy. My wardrobe looks very monochrome, but then everything goes with everything.
In the past I've tried to introduce colour into my life. Like the red dress I wore to a wedding and haven't worn since, or the bright striped top that was going to change my life and ended up in the opp shop pile after 1 wear in 3 years.
This year though, I have decided to accept me as I am, monochrome and all. I only buy my favourite colours and sometimes even wear head-to-toe grey marle. I call it my 3 shades of grey outfit.
My colour choice makes me feel stylish and sophisticated and sometimes even a bit like Emmanuelle Alt (but shorter) so what's wrong with that?

Over the past few months I have developed a full blown obsession with full skirts, especially the navy skirt from Organic by John Patrick (3rd picture from top).
Timeless and versatile, the full skirt suits most body shapes and looks good at any length.
For more glamourous inspiration I highly recommend to check out Martin Grant's Fall/Winter 2014 collection.

Nerd boyfriend and I have recently returned from our first ever trip to Japan. It's a beautiful, incredibly clean and super-organised country so I immediately loved it. The Japanese are such welcoming and friendly people and have a quirky and adorable sense of humour. I'm already looking forward to going back.
One of my highlights was shopping in Tokyo (without nerd boyfriend of course) so I thought it would be nice to share my various purchases with you in a series of posts.

I am a bit obsessed with tracksuit pants so thought I'd share some favourite finds.
I wear mine mostly with Converse all stars like Barbara from Free People (top pic) or sometimes with ballet flats for a slightly more feminine look. I haven't tried the tracksuit+oxfords combo just yet but maybe one day I will.

Theory have launched their new Spring/summer 2014 campaign featuring Stella Tennant, Photography by Lachlan Bailey. Just last week I visited the Theory shop in Shibuya Tokyo and loved the simplicity and clean lines of the range.

It's a cold rainy day in Melbourne. I like this kind of weather. So much so that watching water droplets fall in a flurry when a gust of wind touched the plum tree outside my window almost made me cry this morning.

these boots a few weeks ago but they aren't as comfortable as I was hoping. I wonder if these Coy boots by Rachel Comey might do the trick. I would pair them with this amazing coat by Carven.
