Button-up dress, a $10 bargain, cat eye sunglasses by Forever New, hair clips and bag by Mimco,
Josie wedges by Rubi,

Marc Jacobs chronograph watch and rings from Colette

Sometimes, things are better when they're short and sweet - a cute sticky note, bus ride, birthday card message... oh and a new haircut! Since I first cut my hair short, I found myself visiting the hairdressers more often which I see as I good thing.. no more split ends! The post-feeling of freshly cut hair is somewhat like a mini-makeover I encounter every month. With summer approaching I don't have to worry about tying my hair up, though cute hair clips like these acetate snaps from Mimco are great everyday accessories. When I was younger, I used to wear so many different coloured snap clips it was quite an overkill, so this multi-coloured pair is just perfect!

This sun dress was a $10 bargain I picked up last summer, I adore the cut of it and it's small cap sleeves and criss-cross back. Light and airy, it is probably one of my most "girliest" dresses I own and not to mentioned one of my shortest!

As mentioned in my previous post, I will be including a mini mood board detailing what inspired me behind each outfit. Here - feminine eyelet embroidery, flatforms, short haired beauties like Alexa Chung and cat eye sunglasses all made a visual impact to this post.

Here is my new hip bag from Mimco. Normally I carry a large bag with everything under the sun in it, so a smaller, no-fuss bag like this one is great! It's the right size to store all your bare essentials ie phone, money, lip gloss. The navy leather is soft and buttery and I can't help but to stroke it and sniff it. Come on, let's be honest! Who else likes the smell of leather?... I know I am not alone here hehe

These flesh coloured wedges from Rubi are super comfortable adding height without the form of a stilleto heel. Being flesh in colour, they also create the illusion of a longer leg. Also available in a hot berry pink colour, I think I might just get a second pair sooner or later.

I hope you all are enjoying the remainder of the weekend! If you haven't joined Your Only Black Swan on Facebook, get "liking" as I have exciting news to share with you soon!
