Embrace the midi. You may as well just give in to temptation already because this new silhouette isn't going anywhere... It's perfect for gals in the in between who don't like the sound of a mini and whose maxi-length skirts and dresses are collecting dust (like mine are, partially because I'm still not sure if my height suits them).

This Staple The Label beauty I scored at the Styling Suite a few months back caught my eye immediately, despite telling everyone a second prior that I own too many stripes and had to steer clear... "But it's a different kind of stripe... and it's a different length!" I tried to justify the second I slipped into its soft, stretchy goodness. I haven't looked back, and you shouldn't have to look further than the little collection of midi's I've put together for you below!

If you're stumped for ideas on how to maximise wear out of the style, try:

     1. Pairing it with heels for outings, while opting for Birkenstocks or sneakers for a casual look
     2. Adding a cropped jacket to break the fabric apart a bit on your body and making sure to try on different fits to find the perfect style that flatters your figure

And, let's go for the obvious but perfect option:

     3. The crop and midi skirt pairing that's taken the world by storm in various form of matching co-ordinates, or clashing prints and textures.

Have I convinced you yet?

A mini "travel diary" from Perth which mainly consists of buildings because Fremantle (an old town) is full of pretty ones. Some of my favourite shots from the trip definitely include this one that I instagrammed and the shots from Hotel Fremantle where there seemed to be creepy ghost clouds lurking?

The days we decided to adventure out were spent shopping or wandering around Kings Park, while 100% of my days were spent in the Birkenstock slides that I was repelled by just a few months back (they're too comfortable to hate for too long, okay?!) And don't let that Summer glow fool you... Perth wasn't *that* hot, but my skin still looked the part thanks to Eco Tan's Certified Organic Invisible Tan (it's without all the nasties!)

While it was relaxing and beautiful, there are exciting things to plan for in the next few months so I'm glad to be back sleeping in my own bed. 

P.S I didn't mean to wear triple Glassons but working there means my wardrobe is 80% by them, oops.

Not only do these Quirky Circus shorts fuel my spiralling addiction to co-ords because they match my work blazer, but they're also so light and effortless to throw on with everything. The entire brand is on point when it comes to vintage shapes and prints, and the At The Lake collection perfectly showcases these strengths. I currently have a few items from it scribbled down as I attempt to do some sort of holiday outfit planning, so I'm not quite sure if I'm more excited about the outfits or the trip itself but bring it on!

"Dressing well is not limited to a style, or item of clothing, but the quality of craftsmanship that lies in the design."

Guys sporting bow ties make me weak at the knees. Girls sporting bow ties make me envious. 

Luckily, my lovely friends over at That Dapper Chap are releasing their new collection of handcrafted, high-quality male and female bowies today so I can get my fix; and it's no surprise why business is booming with their Melbourne made, Australian sourced beauties. I love reinvention so this classic staple, previously reserved for the males of the world, being turned into a suave accessory for all is perfect. 

Custom orders are welcome too, so I'm completely sold - especially now that Christmas is inching closer. I think we all need at least one bowie that's sure to turn heads and pave our reputations as street style heroes, agreed?

And look, bonus points for teaching me a valuable life lesson in tying bow ties too.

Expanding my shoe collection beyond the colour scheme of black, white and nude but going a little back to basics with this outfit in turn. I was so in love with the high back of this sandal that I got this close to buying the cobalt blue pair as well, but it seems I'm constantly torn between either expanding my wardrobe or condensing it and this time the latter won. Probably a good thing, although there's always plenty of options on ASOS if I change my mind.
