Monochrome



Hey guys! I know I've been completely silent the past week, but my uni workload has been packed with assignments and exams... Thankfully most of them are over now...
On the bright side, however, I've got some awesome news!! I'm heading to China tonight for a 2 week holiday! Since it's my mid-semester break right now, I thought I'd grab the opportunity to travel. I always like to go somewhere I've never been before, every 3 months or so (especially when I have the time). It keeps me feeling alive, refreshed and motivated.

I'm heading to Beijing, Xian and Shanghai for 2 weeks, and I couldn't be more excited! I've always wanted to walk the Great Wall, see the Terracotta Warriors.. and of course who wouldn't love the hustle-bustle of Shanghai :) Unfortunately, it means that I won't be posting anything until I return.. but as always, there will definitely be a photo diary (or three) of my adventure there! 

Now onto today's post - monochrome! (yes, I'm still loving monochrome...) I can definitely feel winter coming.. nights have been colder than usual, and days are feeling crisp (and the rain has been creeping in!) You can't go wrong with some leather pants and big knit to keep you warm, so that's what I went with :) 

Hope you guys have a great weekend! Talk to you all in 2 weeks!

I'll be posting on Instagram and Twitter regularly, so if you'd like to stay up-to-date with my adventures in China, be sure to follow me :)

Summer style


We're well into Autumn now in Sydney, but some days it feels just like summer. Gotta love Aussie weather :) I had a day full of errands yesterday, so I went for yet another practical and simple look. I feel like I'm doing that a lot lately. I haven't had the time to put much effort into outfits these days.. too busy! Well at least this top is pretty cute. I don't usually wear much pink, but I liked the pattern on this cami.. I think it'll look great tucked into a high-waisted skirt for a night out... Have to try that one ;)

Anyway, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet, because I have a massive pile of uni assignments to get done in a ridiculously short amount of time. And I have to study for exams next week.. ughhhh.. Wish me luck!

Hope you're all having a great Friday night!
#TGIF! Wooo!

A pop of leopard


I'm so excited to show you guys my new favourite shoes! Yes, the slip-on sneaker trend has been around for many months now, but I still can't get over them. I'm in love. Seriously. I got these beauties for a birthday present last week, and I've been wearing them non-stop. My Toms and Converses have received a much-need break. They go really well with my everyday uni/work attire, despite them having a loud leopard print. I thought they'd be more of a statement shoe that you'd wear with black, white and grey, but I've found that they actually compliment a lot of colours, like cobalt blue in this case. I'm keen to experiment with more shades! And I love the chunky platform... it adds an extra inch to my height ;)

Other items on high rotation also include these gorgeous jewellery pieces from Born Pretty.
I was recently sent this gold chain necklace, silver pyramid bracelet and silver irregular ring, and I absolutely love them! They're really good quality, super affordable, and definitely staple items for any jewellery collection. They also add a great finishing touch to an outfit, especially this chain necklace - I pair it with simple t-shirts to add just a hint of glam :) And who says you can't mix silver and gold? I've been doing it quite a bit lately - sometimes because I can't decide which to go for, and other times because I just think it looks cool.. either way, I think it works! 

As a special offer for you guys, Born Pretty has decided to give all readers a 10% discount! Now you can beat the Monday blues with some online shopping... just use the code "TKT10" at the checkout to receive the discount! They have thousands of cool items, from jewellery and accessories, to makeup and apparel. And they're really affordable! Happy shopping :)

In amongst the leaves


Happy Saturday! Hope you're all having a fab start to the weekend :)

The weather here has done a 180 degree turn, and has been non-stop raining the past week. So instead of attempting to take an outfit photo for today, I've decided to whip up some old pics I took a few weeks ago (when the sun was out).
Not going to lie - this is probably the most casual outfit I've ever worn on the blog before.. lol. But when I saw this wall full of gorgeous bright green leaves, I had to stop and take some photos. Oh, the treasures you find in your neighbourhood when you're not looking!

Anyway, I guess it's back to my busy day of uni assignments.. fun..
