Just found my self at Westfield West Lakes in David Jones, and stumbled across French Connection. I found myself leaving with a list of “want’s” to pass onto Scott, just incase he hasn’t secretly bought me anything for my birthday.
First up was this cutest black frilly top, peplum style, slightly on an angle. Really cute, I picture myself getting a lot of wear out of this. Also comes in white, but loved the black. It is normal t-shirt cotton, with the frilly bits being cheesecloth which adds a new textured dimension.
I also fell in love with the Colour Block hat – it’s a medium size hat, so has more protection unlike the smaller versions. Great colours black, white and natural – which means will go with all other colour palettes. Great hat for the beach or beautiful summer days in the sun.

I also tried on this cute dress, which just screamed SUMMER at me. Tank style top, with elastic waist and tie belt. It also has pockets (nothing makes me happier than pockets). This dress was a great price too and would be a weekend go to piece for me, especially as the colour palette is fairly neutral.

I am loving all these items, just hoping Scott logs onto to take a look. Would love to know which piece you love most. xx
This week I hit up Katies. I have been seeing all the other bloggers advertising their clothing, which got me intrigued. I haven’t been to Katies for a very long time and all of a sudden the brand was popping up everywhere (even on my fb page)….I had to see what all the fuss was about. Guess what, I was quite surprised.
First up this cute summer dress, which is screaming 70’s (all the rage this season). I really like it, it’s a good length, colour and print. I would wear it with tan sandals or cute block heel (like the one from Witchery). It would be an easy to wear item for the summer months.

I really like these cute cropped sateen print pants, (a few prints to choose from). A cropped pant works so well for summer, perfect for the office with a block heel and solid block coloured top. Like a pair of good tailored shorts, a pair of pants like these will look good for all occasions.

Found this great batwing top, it’s cotton so very light weight and breathable – and it’s in one of my favourite colours…Coral. Team with some jeans, tan sandals and bag and you are ready to get out the door. An easy to wear top that I love.
Katies was quite a surprise, I liked quite a lot of the stock they had on display. The best thing was the reasonable, affordable price of all their clothes. Ill be heading back in the future.
We thought we would introduce a new weekly post, which is all about items we are lusting over from some of our favorite stores.
This week we went into one of our all time favorites, Witchery. It is seriously my go to store, it doesn’t matter what I need or for what occasion I need something…. (or no occasion at all) this is the store where Ill find what I am looking for and is always the first store I go to.
First up is the mid tan heel – this shoe is so cute. It is going to be seen everywhere, all the stores have a similar version. I love this one as the strap in singular, as I am not a fan of cross straps and the shoe is suede. The heel height is perfect for spring / summer, it is stylish and comfortable for day or night. Team with jeans and cute white blouse and you will just scream summer!

Next up is the cute little white gathered top – Witchery are stating “Loaded with versatility but equally decorative, the Gathered Top will easily take you from the boardroom to bar. The sleek design is rendered with a deep v-front and elasticised waistband with frill details for an ultimately feminine finish“. I am totally agreeing with that, this top is so cute and we think that the semi peplum look adds / or hides any tummy issues you maybe having.
Lastly we are loving the cute crossbody bag. I have my eye on the Chanel Wallet on a Chain (which is just a tad out of my price range) so I have been trying to find something that I would be happy to wear, which looks classy and is functional. With its tan and natural finish this bag is perfect for all outfit colour combos palettes and occasions.This cute little bag ticks all my boxes.

These 3 items should start getting you a little more excited about the future summer days and nights that are slowly making their way too us. Check back next week to see what we are lusting over! xx
