The Curious Case of the Lost Hat

Whilst longingly scrolling through the photos from New York fashion week 2013 (*insert biggest sign known to mankind*) I was surprised at the large number of hats propped upon the heads of those lucky enough to be at New York fashion week. This was particularly surprising as each morning of New York fashion week I jumped onto my computer to read all about up and coming soft palates, pastels and frills; the last thing I was expecting to see on the streets was boho chic!

SPOTTED: The boho hat appears at New York fashion week

I have a huge amount of respect for hats as there have been many days where these little treasures have covered up my miserable bed hair and the fact that my hair is in serious need of a little tender love and care. Not only do hats fend off any judgmental eyes they are great protectors from the sun and here in Australia with summer approaching and the sun stronger than ever, a broad brim is just what the doctor ordered (..literally people).

In my rush to pull my beloved floppy felt hat on top of my locks, it occurred to me that I haven’t seen this hat since my trip to Italy last year! The devastation hit me like a ton of bricks, have I really lost my all time favourite hat!? In the hope of finding my hat I have planned the perfect outfit to entice my floppy friend back, round Celine sunglasses, a tiny leather shoulder bag, printed t-shirt dress, brown leather clogs (I recently bought myself a pair of these and they areĀ bliss in a shoe ladies) and hopefully my hat! (RETURN TO ME PLEASE)

The Minimilist

Last seen on the feet of Sarah Jessica Parker the minimalist heel has made a colossal comeback. The first time I saw these babies reappear was in the 10ft Gucci Spring 2013 advertisement campaign in Rome airport in July of 2012. Image

Despite running late for my flight I stopped to admire the vivacious yellow masterpiece standing down at me. As I am and always will be a wedges lover (the shoes not the potato chips people) I was reluctant at first, but as Australia enters into the Spring season I absolutely cannot get enough of the minimalist heel. After many hours spent hunting the shops of the city to analyse the vast degree of minimalist heels available I came across a few standouts that I’m sure you will looooove.

A simple black heel is so chic it hurts! The great thing about a black minimalist heel is their amazing versatility, they can be worn throughout the day, around the office and are perfect to be seen flitting around the town in by night. An extra benefit of these babies is they’re extremely lightweight and thin, meaning they are perfect for business trips and weekenders with your girlfriends.

I can never bypass a splash of colour.. There is nothing that I don’t like about a bright, statement piece of colour whether it be a clutch, necklace or blazer. What better way to add a classy dash of subtle colour through a neon minimalist heel!

And of course I can’t miss this golden opportunity to show off my new addition to the family (and my watch, which is the absolute love of my life) Ladies, I think I’m obsessed!

Let me know what you think! Do you have a pair of minimalist heels? What do you like to wear them with?

Beat Your Boyfriend: How To

Boyfriend jeans. It seems that everywhere I turn, a pair of boyfriend jeans are right there staring back at me. I purchased my beloved pair on a weekend trip to Melbourne and have been living in them ever since.

Now ladies, these are not your typical pair of baggy jeans, the boyfriend jean has an amazing versatility to be worn practically all year round. So for someone like me, who withholds a serious obsession this is exciting news! However, as Spring has sprung here in Australia I will definitely be wearing my boyfriend jeans one of three ways..

Kicking off at number one, a minimalistic pair of heels with a boyfriend jean is the definition of relaxed chic. This is perfect for a sunny spring brunch with your girlfriends, movie dates with your boyfriend and everything else in between.

At number one for sheer practicality and comfort, boyfriend jeans and sneakers are a match made in heaven. This combination is perfect for long days of shopping (in my case, shopping marathons), spring trips to the beach and warm bike rides with friends.

Finally at number three, boyfriend jeans and statement flats are perfect for those events where you’re not exactly sure on the dress code. This can be either dressed up with a blazer, clutch and rose gold necklace or dressed down with a baggy T-shirt and a messy bun.
