A Holiday of the Past

Following a week of rain and gloomy grey skies, the heavens finally cleared up in an effort to create a beautiful, clear Christmas day. While the holidays could certainly be deemed one of the most hectic weeks of the year, I completely enjoy the pre-Christmas sales. This year, I managed to find one of my now most coveted pieces of clothing, a vintage inspired lace shirt. For a casual day out, I paired this piece with a pair of denim cutoffs and floral booties. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. x.

Light Up My Night

Lately, I've had this addiction to classical and novelty scented candles. They give off a gorgeous aroma that travels throughout the whole house and personally, I find them as a perfect compliment to a rainy day or you know, just because. As Christmas is fast approaching, I've set out to find the homiest scents and those that bring around  some much loved deja vu.

A Lacey Love Affair

When lace first manifested on the fashion scene, no way was I sold into wearing the cloth made for elderly women. But as the fleeting years passed, the concept of donning lacy garments started to grow on me, and now, I have transformed into a slightly obsessed lace-loving freak. The thing I treasure most about lace is the glamorous 1920's vibe every time I dress myself in the fabric. And to top it off, chunky gold necklaces work every time as an old school vintage finishing touch.

Calling for Sunshine

~ summertime calls for wafer cones + ice cream ~

After months of wishing and hoping, Summer has finally arrived. And along with it comes its little treasures. This sticky season, I hope to properly explore the city I have been living in all my life, and am set on uncovering its hidden talents. Usually, I haul all my essentials to the beach and lounge around skimming through magazines books for hours on end. This year, keeping up an active schedule doesn't seem like such a nightmare.  Although I am bound to get reeled into yet another daydreaming state of mind.

~ colour? yes please! ~

~ the backward necklace is something i must conquer this season ~

~ with my hair swept into a neat bun, over-the-top earrings will steal the show ~

~ nobody carries a fan outside anymore, maybe that will change this summer… ~
