I think it goes without saying, but I am not a ‘proper’ blogger in any way, shape or form. So for me, I’ve been finding it hard to find inspiration on what I want to write about, without just turning this little blog of mine into a constant stream of favourites (which I will of course still write, but I don’t want that to become the only content that I’m posting). Especially considering the fact that I work full time throughout the week, I don’t get up to as many interesting things worth sharing as I wish, which can make thinking of things to share from my life much harder because I’m sure reading about an average week in my life would bore anyone who reads this to death.
Instead, I thought maybe I’d start off with sharing the few outfits I get to wear in a week when I’m not in my god-awful work uniform. I guess I wouldn’t completely rule out the idea of doing a weekly post on what I got up to as well as what I wore that week, but for now, while I’ve had nothing of note really going on in my average life I’m thinking I’ll just keep it nice and simple.
I don’t think I’ve shared this on here before but I work at Kmart (glamorous I know), so I am completely surrounded by all the goodies people post on those kmart style inspo instagrams all the time, and it can be pretty hard to resist buying a few things here and there when it’s all so stupidly cheap.
Anyway, the point of this is the other day we got in a new jumpsuit, and I bought it for myself straight away. It’s about 3/4 length on my very long legs, and it has the cutest little tie-up straps and a tie belt around the waist. Because of the neckline, I didn’t wear a bra with it (which if I can get away with not wearing a bra then I won’t). I guess the only thing I don’t like about it is the fact that when I need to go to the bathroom in this, I’m pretty much sitting there completely naked, but other than that for the price I paid for this, I’m a big fan.
I’m writing this on Sunday, and yesterday I had two different outfits. The first was super casual obviously, considering all I really went out to do yesterday was grab a little snack for brunch and get my nails done.
I didn’t realise how shit the quality of iphone photos are in comparison the ones from my camera, so I apologise. Lately though I’ve had this vision of wearing cute slip dresses with sneakers, except I don’t have any trainer kind of shoes that are more ‘sneakery’ I guess than my vans, converse or stan smiths.
With this outfit, I decided to pair it with my stan smiths. I wore this dress and bag combo in a recent post, and I love it because you can chuck on almost any kind of shoe with it and you’ll look good. It was a little bit cold when I left the house so I just chucked on this light coat which has been perfect for the weather lately because it’s that sort of in-between of a coat and a cardigan (it’s also actually from kmart too).
I thought I’d chuck in a sneaky pic of my nails too because I’m in love with them. I get them done at Holy Nails & Spa in Dickson and they’re so good. They take so much care, so my nails always look amazing and my acrylics last so well too. If you’re in Canberra then I would highly recommend.

Saturday night I had a dinner and drinks sort of thing to go to so I wanted to dress up just a lil bit, but not too much. Another thing I bought for myself this week was a super cute new dress from a brand called Beyond Her which they sell at Glue.
I think the brand is relatively new and so far I’ve seen some really cute things I’ve got my eyes on. The shoes I wore with this dress are pretty new to me as well, except with me being the complete mess I am, I didn’t get them in any of my photos.
I’m really into this style of dress lately, I think the fit is so flattering. I love the really straight neckline, and how the straps are positioned almost as close to the sides as possible, which makes me look a bit broader across my shoulders. I fits nice and tight around my bust and then cuts at the waist and is just slightly a-line, but in a way thats very subtle. Even though it is a short dress, it isn’t too short for me and my incredibly long legs which I appreciate.
Again I apologise for the shitty iphone quality.
Dress: Beyond Her
And finally my last outfit of the week, and after realising how awful the quality of iphone photos are I did force my sister into taking some pics on my camera for me instead, and I really like this outfit tbh.
I love this little button up top so much, it’s so cute and I love the creamy linen fabric it’s made with. It’s so easy to wear and looks so effortlessly good, especially with a button or two undone at the top.
These pants I also love but I hadn’t got much wear out of them since the weather’s been warmer. They have some orange and yellow running through the checks which I love, and I think because of that they don’t look so heavy and wintery and you can get away with wearing them into spring before it starts to get way too hot for pants. I personally think the fit is so flattering and they’re actually the perfect length for my legs (hardly anything ever is).
Again, I brought out my Rebecca Minkoff bag which I love very much, partly because it’s super sentimental to me because my boyfriend bought it for me as a 19th bday present, but also I just love how it looks. I’m not sure if they make this style anymore but I’m still into it, and it’s really small so it’s perfect for just going out to get coffee or any kind of weekend outing where you really don’t need much.
And my pink loafers make an appearance in this outfit too. I love loafers so much, I can’t see a point in time where I won’t love them.
