Playsuit- Kmart, Kimono- Ebay, Shoes- Converse, Sunglasses- Cosmetics Plus
Playsuits are one of my favourite must have essentials. Easy and comfortable and in a variety of cuts and prints that can take you from day time to night time. I picked up this little cutie from Kmart for $15. Absolute bargain and so comfy it feels like I'm not wearing anything.

Playsuit- Kmart, Shoes- Kmart, Sunglasses- Cosmetics plus
On Sunday I had a rather lovely day with Sophie. We headed to South bank in the city. We started off with a nice little dip in the lagoon, the water was absolute perfection. Then we headed to Max Brenner where Sophie popped my cherry and I stuffed my face with two waffles complete with banana, strawberry, ice cream and the dreamiest chocolate ever. To go with that I had a to die for toffee milkshake that came in a really cool cup called the `Alice'. Me and Max Brenner aka the bald man were meant to be. We then a sat on the grass for the bit and complained about how fat we felt. I made myself feel better my busting out a few yoga moves.
After that we waddled to the cinema to slouch in comfy chairs for the next 2 hours drooling over Luke Evans, who was so perfect for the role, in Dracula untold. The movie was so good. Straight to the point with no fiffaff of pointless scenes. For those of you unsure of what the movie is about, its based on the true story of Vlad Draculea aka Vlad the impaler, the original inspiration for Bram Stokers Dracula, and his fight with the Ottoman Turks. Then comes the fiction where he gains the powers of a vampire in order to fight them and save his people. Personally I loved it as I love vampires and all these types of movies.
After that we got some sushi then headed home. Upon returning home I sat there trying my best not to go crazy thinking its Sunday, hell yeah new walking dead. But no I had to wait till Monday night, you know with Oz being practically a whole day ahead. It has been torture waiting for Season 5 to start but OOOOOOMMMMMMGGG was it worth it. I actually cried during the premier episode. I love that cast and crew so much. TEAM DARYL.
On that note a few things that are currently making me very happy is new seasons of my favourite tv shows, The Walking dead, Criminal Minds and agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Along with this is the confirmation that I've been worrying about for a while now, Robert Downy Jr will continues to play Iron man, yaaay, and they are making a 4th, F**k yeaaah. They are also making a 5th Pirates of the Caribbean with Johnny Depp continuing to play Jack, Woohooo. Lastly, they are finally making another Robert Langdon/ Dan Brown movie. Finally. I'm not sure why though, but they are skipping the lost symbol and making Inferno. It doesn't bother me too much, I'm just happy they are finally making another one. I'm currently reading Inferno and have recently watched Angels and demons and the Da vinci code and was thinking when are they going to make another one. A few days later I read this news. I'm so happy I can't really explain it. 3 of my favourite shows have new seasons at the same time and 3 of my absolute favourite movie franchises are all getting another movie. Now if Avengers 2 would hurry up, my fan girling would be pretty complete right now.

T- Kmart, Shorts- Charity shop, Shoes- Converse, Sunglasses- Cosmetics plus
A couple of weeks ago I did a post on model off duty style. There was one model what was rocking a pair of oversized tailored shorts and my eyes practically shot out of my head when I first saw them. All I could think about was getting my hands on a pair without spending an arm and a leg. I shopped around all my local charity shops thoroughly untill I came across the perfect pair of full length pants, which turned out to be men's in the wrong section. It Makes no difference as I always look in the men's section as well. The over sized and baggyness along with the fit on the waist is exactly what I wanted. I cut them and they cost me grand total of $8. Sorted. They're perfect to just slip on to pop into town. I want to play around and try them with birkenstocks, maybe a crop top and some form of smart shoe.

Blazer- Salvation army, Shorts- Ally, T-shirt- Kmart, Shoes- Kmart, Bag- Cottonon, Sunglasses- Cosmetics plus
I had an interview in the city which required smart casual dress. Now I don't really own too many 'smart' clothes, accept this blazer which I picked up a few months ago. That's what I love about a trusty simple black blazer. Throw it on over pretty much anything and it instantly gives you that smart more presentable look. It was also the first time I wacked out a pair of heels in a long time. It was a nice little leg work out, do I need to go to cross fit tonight after that? yeeeah of cause I do. A few more squats never hurts.

After scouring through a tone of street style snaps from fashion month, I noticed a little trend popping up. That trend being fringing. My favourite way of wearing fringing has to be the route of a simple oversized shirt with fringing around the bottom, particularly of the feather kind. I love Chiara Ferragni's plaid take on it. Who doesn't love a good plaid shirt. If you don't want to go all out with a fringed clothing piece, go down the accessories route. An easy way to incorporate this trend is with a fringed bag. I have a trusty fringed bucket bag from cotton on that's on high rotation with another cottonon bag. If you want to go for the more out there look, the fringed skirt or something along the flapper dress line is a fun flirty way to wear it. Warning: I used to have a fringed top way back and the sucker kept getting caught on everything. Choose your fringing wisely.
