Crazy B'Day Kicks

Kenzo flatforms MoonSpoon Buffalo Topshop

This weekend just past I celebrated the very special milestone of turning 21!
Although I only had a small get-together with close family and friends, I wanted to be able to go all-out with my outfit for the occasion, so I decided on a 'Streets of Tokyo' theme and advised all of my guests to dress in their craziest Tokyo street style inspired outfits. 
Everyone looked hilariously great, and hopefully I'll have some party piccies up soon, but the real stars of my outfit were my ridiculous (but amazing) flatform sneakers. 

I spied them on Topshop a month or two ago and just couldn't help myself, they were too perfect to resist. I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled across these vibrant rainbow shoelaces in a box of my old stuff just a day before the party, it was the crazy combo of my dreams. 

As if one pair of crazy shoes wasn't enough for the night, my older brother gave me these amazing blue/green animal print flatform sandals by KENZO, which I had been lusting after forever - I'm kind of still pinching myself.

Holiday Playsuit

floral overalls, pastel dungarees, pink and blue overalls, blue dip dye, green ombre hair blogger, pink and blue roses playsuit, deena & ozzy maroon boots,

I put together this outfit for a spontaneous 'adventure day' with some pals last week. We weren't sure where we were going or what we were doing so I decided to dress down a little and go for practicality and fun! We ended up at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mount Coot-tha and had cute little picnic by the lake.

I'm wearing: Floral overalls from Verge Girl, grey merino wool top from Glassons, maroon Deena & Ozzy boots from Urban Outfitters, thrifted felt hat, and Graz x Ellery Quixote catseye sunglasses from Optiko.

OOTD: Iridescent Bomber

front row shop bomber jacket

Finally I don a bomber jacket!
In keeping with the current sports luxe trend, bombers are the in-thing in outerwear this season. 
I was definitely skeptical at first; no matter your figure, it seems hard to find one that flatters. 
Luckily the sheer factor is here to keep us looking stylish without making us look extra chunky.
 This bomber also combines another two of my favourite trends at the moment - dazzling iridescent fabrics, and white, the colour of the season. I'm in love with the gorgeous iridescent shimmer of greens,
golds, and blues that you see when the sun hits it, and it has a brilliant lightness to it.

OOTD: Strap In, Stand out

OOTD Nasty Gal Atom Smasher Jumper orange pinafore Miista May silver boots

I have been infatuated with overalls and pinafore dresses ever since I spotted the cutest little burgundy corduroy pinafore in the Oxford Street Topshop store back in November. Despite my instant infatuation, I didn't commit to the purchase as I needed to save my pennies if I was going to make it through the rest of my Euro trip, however my lust did not go away. 

Overalls and pinafores have become a huge trend since, so i've found myself looking for something in the fabulous playful style that would still manage to stand out in the sea of dungarees. 

Nasty Gal provided the perfect solution in the form of this statement orange pinafore with chunky plastic buckles. I was hesitant to purchases it at first, as it is kind of outrageous, but I took the plunge and I love it! 

I'm wearing: orange pinafore from Nasty Gal, black 'Ghastly' collared shirt from Dangerfield, and Miista May ankle boots in silver from Solestruck.
