STREET STYLED:: STRIPES + SANDALS

8 Aug
NECKLACE LOW LUV | DRESS FREE PEOPLE | BAG MODCLOTH | SANDALS RACHEL ZOE | CUFF MADEWELL

 
You guys will never believe me when I tell you this, but in this photo you can’t really tell what Karlie’s bag looks like. So I just chose the bag that I would wear with this outfit and LOOK! After creating this post and choosing all of the items I found this alternate view and it’s the saaame bag!

I believe this is what they call uncanny

So as I said in the caption above, this is the type of dress you wear on those days when you wake up feeling particularly skinny. When you have that magic flat morning tummy and you just wanna wear something fitting and show it off. Until you eat lunch. But we’ll worry about that later.

MAN DECOR

24 Jul

1. West Elm / 2. Target                                                                    

 The most common decorating issue my girlfriends have is finding decor that their boyfriends can agree to. If I had a striped shirt for every time a girl asked me this I’d have a closet full of striped shirts… oh wait. Which brings me to my next point. I have a gray and white striped shower curtain. I’ve painted my walls gray and white stripes. And I’ve also fallen in love with a certain gray and white striped duvet cover but I’m pretty sure that would be crossing some sort of line, so now I’m passing this one on to you.

The stripes are wide (read: not feminine) and it is one of the two male-approved colors (navy blue and gray)  so your boyfriend will probably say “yes! I love this duvet cover I think we should definitely get it and that papier-mache tortoise shell you’ve been eyeing at West Elm.”

No just kidding, he’ll say “what’s a duvet? …. That one’s okay.” Which is all a girl could hope for. So here are the deets – it’s from West Elm. It’s on sale. And yunno what else? I found it at Target for cheaper!  

Now answer me this, are gray & white striped walls, a gray & white striped shower curtain, and gray & white striped duvet cover too much?

OUTFIT:: SUNDAY

5 Sep
Didn’t get much sleep last night due to the 400mph winds blowing through Sydney. So today was a day for chunky knits and large sunglasses. Everyone have a good weekend? Mine consisted of True Blood marathon (OMG!), a ‘food party’ (still full), and Stylestalker warehouse sale which was quite fruitful. 
Bye bye Sunday, sad to see you go.
