Basics for all the Basics....


So I decided to slay in this basic LBD. The word basic is such an understatement. My most "basic" looks are my favourites.  I guess I am a Basic Betty kinda gal. HA! 

The ribbing details was what caught my eyes at first, and of course the colours on the sleeve and neckline. Im into midi dresses more these days. I never thought I'd slowly be ditching the shorter hems for longer ones.. (eeeeek Is this a sign that I'm getting old?

Wearing; F21 Dress, Giuseppe boots, Cheap Monday Sunglasses, Celine Handbag, H&M bracelet, Marshall's pompom 

On another note I've been adding these little furry friends to all my purses and accessories. Such a fun and inexpensive look. 

Hope you guys are enjoying this amazing Fall weather. 



Nothing much to say, so I will let the pics do the talking. The sun was not cooperating with me and unfortunately most of the shots captured were detailed shots. If you're a blogger or photographer then you know that sunlight or should I say the "golden hour" is prime time to shoot. None the less I still captured some pretty cool pics.

Summer Stripes

The end of summer is almost upon us. Just the thought of it breaks my heart. No more endless Vanilla bean Fraps, with extra whip, *Yum*, weekend beach visits, cut off shorts and neon painted manicured toes, and my favourite, riding round with the top off. 
Summer is when the best memories are made. Unforgettable memories...... 

 My summer closet is trying to sneak in a quick cameo on the blog as well before summer says its final goodbye. So many fits, so little time....  Nonetheless I'm ready for fall.  I'll be posting a few of my fave summer looks so stay tuned...

Wearing: Asos: shorts, Zara: blazer and shoes, Aritzia: cropped top, F21: Accessories

I kept this look simple with striped shorts and a white blazer to offset the look. I'm loving lace up shoes at the moment and they have quickly became an obsession in my closet. Hope you'll are all having a great summer and making the best of whats left of it. 

Cheers to summer and ending it right.  Until next time loves.

Banana Split

I feel like a giant Banana In this jumper, but I absolutely love it. Bold red lips to accentuate this look only seemed fit. I initially intended to not wear the jumper with a belt, however I can appreciate a SNATCHED waist from time to time. 

I've gained a few pounds since my last post, and to be honest I haven't been posting as much as I should. In my family, gaining weight (not obese) is a good thing. lol YES!!! you heard right. It means that you are not malnourished and some how that life is agreeing with you. In other words they think I'm fine just the way I am, but when you're used to being 15 pounds lighter well.... you catch my drift..

Wearing: Zara Jumper & sandals, Vintage- Clutch, Forever21- Necklaces & Cuff, MAC- Riri Woo

The struggle to stay fit and stray away from anything baked and sweet is REAL... However I've substituted healthier choices in my diet and i'm trying to stay focused and on track. I think I will be putting off swimsuit shopping this year. Don't take me too serious.

Till next time.....



How's that for a colour. I own nothing like it. This dust coat is everythiiiiiing and more. How could I leave this piece behind? Well at first I did, but If you're anything like me, well lets just say you know how that goes. First the sleepless nights, then the torture, did I mention the torture? 
I was not surprised to see this item sold out on line in just a matter of days. 

Love the waterfall detailing of the collar. 

I threw on my tortoise super frames and completed the look with an all white ensemble. I was going for an all denim look, but that quickly changed once my destination did. Fashion guru Olivia Palermo was also seen in this hot item seen pictured below. She knocked this look right out the park. I might just follow her lead and pair my white palazzo pants with this coat. 

Wearing; #LimeCrime lip stick in Cashmere 

Wearing: ZARA- coat, crop top, jeans and sandals, SUPER sunglasses 

Until next post my loves .....

So I really wanted to start this sentence off with something cliche' like Back like I never left.... but hell! Who am  I kidding its been a while peeps. It feels so good to be back. I can't wait to share my looks with you guys. You all have showed me so much love over the past few years and it's that kind of support that keeps me going. 

Lately I've been feeling uninspired, but now that spring is here and the traces of this nasty winter is no longer, I think ya girl is quickly getting her MOJO back.  Don't believe me just watch?  I've especially missed wearing my open toe sandals, showing off that bright coloured mani that's been hidden all winter long in my sweaty hunter boots. UGH! just the thought of it. They're now back in the box where they belong. 

Wore this dress to dinner with the fam. Nothing fussy just kept it real simple. These shoes I purchased last year from the Zara sale. They were definitely worth the wait, AND I bought them in orange as well for quarter of the original price. Don't you just love when that happens?  If only I had the will power to wait until everything I liked went on sale to purchase. That right there is a patient shopper, but ya girl ain't got time for that. Life is too short to be waiting for things to go on sale all the time LOL you feel me? 

Wearing: Zara; leather jacket, dress, shoes,  Oliver Peoples; sunnies
