NAVAJO SUN








I instantly feel like I should be somewhere roaming the American plains whenever I wear this Navajo-inspired throw-over. It's funny how the whole Navajo/aztec/native trend has exploded across all fields of fashion, furniture and jewellery design. I really don't think it will be disappearing anytime soon!

I thrifted this piece during one of my thrifting adventures at Broadway Salvos. For those who live in Sydney, this op-shop is definitely worth stopping by. You may have to sift threw all the racks but that's what makes it fun. Amongst the categorised racks, I came across this delightful number. It is very light and the ideal throw-on, perfect for summer teamed with frayed shorts and a bikini like Ivy Sullivan from 90210. You may also notice my fringe bag looks very similar to this purple one I showcased earlier - priced at only $10, it would of been silly to pass up on this natural coloured one! ;)

These photos were taken over the weekend right before my friends and I headed out to lunch for some chocolate thick shakes and marinara pizza. The sun was out and yet again Mother Nature was teasing us with spring-like weather. All I wanted to do was to bask in the sun and soak up the rays.









Wearing: throw-on (thrifted), highwaisted denim shorts (DIY), amethyst necklace (DIY), leather belt (vintage), Chelsea boots (Marais USA) and suede fringe bag (Glebe Markets)

Who else is bewildered at how fast the weekend comes to an end? Earlier today I caught up with Thu (Original Number), Brooke (re:new vintage), and Emma (Spin Dizzy Fall) for some fondue fun at Max Brenner. Talk about a chocolate overload! Photos to come soon

In the mean time, here's a uber cool tune to wrap up the weekend: Little Dragon - Ritual Union.



Happy Sunday guys and girls!

  1. These colours are gorgeous on you! And I agree, the weather has been such a tease lately I got so excited about the warm weather and now it's suddenly gone cold again. Boo, bring on spring.
