PEARLY DREAMS


Wearing: Beginning Boutique Pearly Dreams Sheer Shirt, vintage Levi's Cut-Offs from Glebe Markets, blue velvet Dr. Martens and assorted jewellery and rings.

Hip hop hooray, today is Beginning Boutique's 3rd Birthday! For those you haven't come across Beginning Boutique, they are an Australian-based online store offering the latest in fast, on-trend fashion as well top designs from One Teaspoon, Bec & Bridge, Living Doll, Talulah, Style Stalker and more. In celebration of their 3rd year in running, you can join in the fun competitions and sweet giveaways on offer here on their Facebook page. With the weather warming up, Beginning Boutique will have you sorted for the festival season (both music and the races types) offering a great range of statement bags and accessories to make sure you're fully dressed head-to-toe!

One of my current favourite designs from the store, is the Pearly Dreams Sheer Shirt! As most of you may know by now, my fetish for anything collared is pretty much at it's peak, it was no surprise I was caught jaw-open the moment I saw this baby - collared, embellished, sheer and asymmetrical draping! Oh my!.... Please excuse me while I push my jaw back closed! This delightful number is no doubt fun to wear, with the sleeveless design and sheer drapery it is assured to make heads turn, though the embellished pearl and moon beaded collar adds that unexpected feminine innocence. Teamed up with a bandeau, my trusty denim cut-offs and velvet Dr. Martens - I really don't think summer knows what's coming!

I wasn't lying when I said this shirt is fun to wear. It got me playing with the drapery and loose fitting, I couldn't really stay still! I am sure this piece will be a popular wardrobe pick in the warmer months to come and I look forward to wearing it tucked in, cinched with a belt or even with bright coloured skinny jeans for a full-impact look!

To see more of what summer would look like - here's a glimpse thanks to Beginning Boutique's latest lookbook:
