Can you guys believe that we're already in May??? We're nearly halfway through 2012.
Melbourne's getting pretty cold lately, with all the showers and grey skies. So it's time to pull out the coats, sweaters, scarves, and stockings!
wearing: TOPSHOP cardigan, FOREVER NEW shorts, THRIFTED belt, MIUMIU flats, MULBERRY satchel
I picked this outfit based around this pair of stockings. I bought them 3 years ago but haven't got the chance to wear them. I didn't even remember why i bought them, because it's not the usual stocking-type for me and it's pretty hard to combine it in an outfit. Due to the hectic pattern and khaki colour, i decided to pair it with plain neutrals (coz neutrals go with everything). For a preppy look, i picked this Topshop cardigan and zipped it all the way up for the full ruffle effect and paired it with my black Miu Miu mary-janes. A friend of mine said i "look like those upper-class ladies in the olden days." Lastly, i don't remember if i've shown you guys this belt... but how amazing are they! i got it from salvation army for only $4 and... those gold hands just blew my mind. I feel like someone is constantly hugging me around my waist whenever i wear that belt (lol creepy much).
I must admit, walking on the beach with stockings and shoes on was a big mistake coz i came home with sand in between my toes. But i guess it was worth it to get a good background for the shoot :)
