New in my Wardrobe


I don't know about you, but I get so excited when the seasons change and it's out with the old and in with the new. In New Zealand we're in the middle of autumn which means it's time to layer, layer, layer. Spring and autumn are definitely the best times of year as you can be really versatile with what you wear. This year I've decided to invest in some different-to-me pieces and a bit of the same-old, because nobody can tear me away from my jumpers and jeans!

The Red Bag

Red, along with pink, has been everyone's favourite colour recently and I am so on board with it. I've had this Dangerfield bag since November and it's become a firm favourite when I want to inject a pop of colour. My other bags are black so it definitely makes for a nice change! Experimenting with a red bag has made me want to embrace more colour - I've got my eye on this green vintage-inspired number. Dangerfield have some lovely bags that aren't too expensive and don't look too cheap either.

The Jumpsuit

I have lusted over jumpsuits time and time again while scrolling through Instagram. I absolutely love the way they look, but just not on me. Impulsively, I decided to buy this Topshop one and safe to say it's love at first wear. It's definitely more fitted on top and then flares out to some major wide leg, which I love. Topshop sizing does baffle me though - I just wish some stores would make clothes that fit curvier women. If you too are after your first jumpsuit, I would really recommend this one because it goes with absolutely everything and is a great layering piece.

I've paired the jumpsuit with this new polka dot top from Zara which is giving me some serious 80s vibes. It's hard to see in the picture, but the sleeves are slightly puffed out and the high neck is subtly ruffled. I find it very hard to dress up, but this is the kind of piece that is great for work and is just as easily made casual.

The Jumpers

This Fan Club Clothing Modern Romance jumper is just the type of thing I love wearing tucked into jeans. I actually won this in a giveaway back in December which I was immensely pleased about! I have a couple of their t-shirts and I really rate them.

The other sweater I've started to wear now the weather has cooled down is from ASOS. Funny story, but this Willow and Paige jumper reminds me of my old school one which was just as red and just as scratchy. In hindsight it wasn't the most practical purchase, but with a t-shirt underneath it's fine. Paired with jeans and Converse, you really can't go wrong.


The Jackets

I've been on the lookout for some light jackets and for some reason I've gravitated towards the colour green. I bought the khaki military-style jacket in an op shop late last year, but I've been getting some serious wear out of it at the moment - it goes surprisingly well with so many things. I would pair it with my polka dot top and blue denim (or just a white tee) - slightly Lindsay Weir inspired as usual.

The other jacket I went for was more of an investment and something slightly different for me. It's a cord cropped number in a forest green colour from Princess Highway. I wouldn't say I'm the biggest fan of cropped jackets but I think they can look pretty nice paired with high waisted pants or jeans - and this is the perfect style to take me through to winter.

The Striped Pants

If you know me, you'll know I rarely take my jeans off. This summer I decided to buy a few pairs of floaty pants as an alternative and I'm loving it. These striped ones I found in an op shop - originally from Topshop - aren't the most flattering pair but they are so unbelievably comfy.


The Jewellery

In terms of jewellery, I have been loving gold lately. I have seen countless people wearing coin necklaces and I was desperate to have one of my own but didn't want to pay for real gold. This one from ASOS is such a nice alternative and is great quality for the price. I swear this makes any outfit look just that much better, especially with plain white tees.

Lastly, I went for a pair of Reclaimed Vintage earrings - which are unfortunately out of stock right now. Again, these weren't too expensive but add a lot to a plain outfit. I wear a smaller pair of gold hoops on a regular basis but these make more of a statement.
