LACE ME UP


Forever Fields suede lace up shorts by Ladakh via The Iconic, crochet croppped top by Sgt. Sookie, lace bandeau and earrings by Sportsgirl, Frankie suede wedges by Tony Bianco, assorted rings by Colette, chronograph watch by Marc Jacobs and Clubmastes by Ray-Ban.


I have always been a fan of short shorts, suede and cute lace up/eyelet details, so much that during the moment my eyes laid upon these babies two words popped into my mind - hot dang!! These sunburnt brick red suede shorts are by Ladakh and exclusively available at theiconic.com.au The lace up details on the side remind of something a hippie goddess of the Woodstock era would wear. Here I have showcased the shorts in full view teamed up with a cropped crochet top from Sgt. Sookie. Cropped tops are the best for summer and compliment anything high waisted whilst the addition of a lavender lace bandeau gives another element of texture and colour to the outfit.

One thing I can’t ignore is that I have been wearing more gold recently thanks to my new Marc Jacobs chronograph watch.  Layered with colourful wrist bands and my DIY bracelets, it was part of my farewell present from my previous role and one that I will cherish forever. A classic design with a modern touch of white detailing on the face - I regard it as my “never fail/instant glam” watch! Hoorah! I have also made a habit of wearing an assortment of rings from Colette whenever I wear gold. The stackable black, purple and peach rings are my favourite!

Yet again my Tony Bianco Frankie wedges makes another appearance!! – I really can’t get enough of them. They’re so comfy and easy to walk in, I’m sure you will be seeing more of them in future posts.

I’m so happy the heat and summer sunshine has kicked in. I have always preferred winter dressing because of all the layers but minimal dressing, both literal and “trend” speaking is so much easier ie. wearing pair of shorts, chucking on a top and you’re out the door!


Wishing everyone a good week and if you like giveaways, be sure to keep your eyes peeled this week! I have one amazing giveaway to launch, which involves two prizes! Yep, that means two lucky winners!! Double BOOM!
