SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA
Dear friends, I think I’ll always be apologising for my constant silences and lack of regular posting on styliminal. I honestly wished uni didn’t have to consume so much of my time and energy, but unfortunately, it’s the reality of being a full time student. So I guess for the time being, I’ll just to have to accept (very reluctantly, though) my irregular posting, and I hope you’ll bear with me too!
In other news, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll have seen the deluge of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia snaps, and I’ll just say that it was an absolutely incredible experience, being able to attend as a Miro Door writer/contributor, and also for the first time. I don’t want to ramble on too much about it in this post, and I have a ton of photos I want to share with you guys from MBFWA – the only issue is finding the time to get them posted! Hopefully as soon as possible. Perhaps after all my mid-sem exams are done and dusted. (Two down, two more and an assignment to go).
If you’ve read my first ever outfit post, or seen my ootd’s on Instagram, you’ll know that I have an immense love for monochrome pairings. And so, I suppose it was inevitable that I was to showcase another permutation of this classic colour pairing. Another thing I’m very happy about? Monochrome is definitely on trend for the coming Spring Summer 15/16 season, (‘cos it never goes out of style haha), as seen in a multitude of designer collections that went down the runway at MBFWA.
As for this outfit, I love how it’s a little bit more dressy than usual, thanks to the white shirt, and the leather panelling on my pants, yet casual at the same time, thanks to the Converse, bohemian, Coachella-vibing statement necklace (oh how I wish I could go to Coachella… one day…), and the rolled up sleeves. It’s comfortable enough to wear on the weekends – for brunch, running errands, shopping, and also super versatile too. If I wanted to wear this to uni, I’d switch the oversized clutch for my usual uni tote/backpack and probably swap the statement necklace for something dainty. And for a night out with friends, I’d simply swap the Converse and rock a pair of heels instead. This outfit is also great in this funky transeasonal period, especially in Sydney, where it can be quite chilly in the morning and then boiling hot at noon. Simply throw on a chunky knit cardigan or a sweater on top (with the cute bonus of the collar peeking through), and a scarf, and you’re good to go – layer, layer, layer, repeat. That’s the secret to conquering this liminal space between summer and winter, friends. And I promise you you’ll be killin’ it ;)
Currently wishing the weather in Sydney wasn’t so erratic, and also that it wasn’t so cold and gloomy – I’ve already started pulling out my winter gear, and I have no idea how I’m going to survive when winter actually rolls around!
I hope you like the photos, and that your week is going well so far :)
