Wearing: Doris Shirt by August Street, Catwoman leggings by Subtitled via General Pants (similar here), Ego and Greed Bowler ESP wedge boots, vintage bag, sunnies from Paddy's Markets (similar here in pink!), arm candy from The Philippines and Marc By Marc Jacobs watch Photography by Yesha Singh.

Some new threads and one of my favourite outfits to date, I'm calling this ensemble 'Black Hart'. Lately, I've been ticking off a few things on my wishlist, and it definitely feels good! hehe. One of these lust-worthy items are these faux leather Catwoman leggings by Subtitled. I've come to notice my accumulation of Subtitled gear, it is truly one brand that represents my personal style. These leggings fit like a glove and are really comfortable. I love the side hip zipper and paneling on the front, but my favourite feature of all is the high waist cut. It flattens your stomach and is super flattering when you want to wear a shorter top or tank. No muffin top there! I'm sure you will see me wearing them a lot. A wardrobe staple no doubt.

As mentioned earlier, I like to mix a range of black textures with pops of colour and interesting prints. This brocade, motif print shirt is from August Street's latest Summer 2012 collection which you are going to love! Featuring bright colours like hot pink, chartreuse, orange and emerald green, we welcome an edgy, quirky take on sports lux and print on print. Just wait to you see their printed bomber and blazer.... Amazeballs!

To complete the look, my new tropical print wedges from Ego and Greed (got them during the Solestruck sale, only $47 OMG!), vintage leather patchwork bag and black fur snapback. I'm digging snapbacks lately, but I think you know that already.

I wore this fun, playful outfit out to one of my best friend's birthday in Bondi. We had lunch at Hurricanes (so good!) , treated ourselves to some retail therapy and enjoyed deep-fried Mars Bars whilst looking out to the ocean. Summer is definitely upon us and I can't wait for sultry, warm night's and plenty visits to the beach.
