Hi all and welcome back to a fresh new fashion post! Today I’ll be showing you some of my recent ootd’s + my favourite fashion picks & trends at the moment!
Casual preppy chic
This is one of my fav recent looks! Although it is spring time in Melbourne, it still gets pretty cold sometimes so I love to keep warm & comfortable with my everyday outfits. This may seem like a dress but it’s actually a 2 piece ensemble. I got the textured sweat top and matching skirt from Sportsgirl and it was on sale which is even better! The sweat top is still available online and both can be still found in some SG stores so it’s worth checking out!

To complete the look I added black knee high socks I got from H&M. This gives me a preppy look which I love. The boots are a recent purchase from Wittner. I love these lace up leather boots for everyday wear as they are stylish & super comfy as well!

Last but not least is the key piece of it all the handbag!
I got it online from one of my fav fashion brands at the moment Charles & Keith. If you’d like to know more about this stylish ladies shoes & accessories brand then check out my ‘Holiday highlights’ post where I wrote more about it and showed some of my current collection (the wish list is long ;)).
Charles & Keith Tasselled box bag
Another fav pick from Charles & Keith is this gorgeous velvet pyramid bag. Wear around your wrist for a stylish upgrade to your evening look.

As I mentioned before it is still cold in Melbourne, even freezing sometimes, so I like to keep warm with a cozy soft knit. These jumpers from Boohoo are not only stylish and comfy, they are also extremely affordable!*
I’m a sucker for powder blue (or baby blue) colour, and these oversized jumpers are just perfect! I paired them with a simple black skirt from H&M or houndstooth print skirt from Forever21 and I’m ready to go!

Boohoo Lena choker v neck oversized jumper ($40)
Another successful purchase from Boohoo is this lovely printed paisley maxi dress with navy & cream hues.
This dress is for tall chicks (from the boohoo tall collection), and it looks great styled with a western belt & black shoe boots. Check out boohoo’s maxi dresses range for more fashionable boho styles.

Beach holiday glam
My fav jelly shoe brand is making a comeback this season with fresh new designs & colours to suit any age & style! I love Holster’s new Jetsetter snickers, available in 3 Metallic colours and they’re oh so comfy! I love wearing them for anything and everything, day or night, they scream glam & sparkle 😉
Holster Jetsetter sneakers – midnight blue
Their sandal range is simply stunning and makes me dream of a beach holiday getaway any day. Like these sandals below that feature sparkling jewels, hand beaded detail and bright colours that scream summer & tan.
Holster Glow Espadrille – champagne
Glow flats – hot coral
I love these glam wedges featuring nude & silver tones. These are great for a resort style getaway (or even a casual visit to your local beach!) and dressy nights out. So comfy and simply fabulous.
I also love this beautifully designed jelly handbag. It’s like carrying a designer handbag to the beach! Although it’s beautiful as an everyday handbag too.
Holster Downtown bag – blue

Another big obsession of mine lately is fur (faux fur that is). Anything fur appeals to me lately: fur pom poms, fur bags, fur clothing, fur accessories & fur shoes!
Zara Faux fur vamp sandals
Trending now, these beauties are so fluffy, girly and stylish! I absolutely adore these black classic Zara heels with nude fluffy fur. Wear them with anything! Check your nearest Zara store for these.
Sol Sana Kim faux fur flat mules
These gorgeous furry mule slides by Sol Sana, a successful trending Australian shoe brand, are a luxury you can afford. I fell in love with these as soon as I found them on insta! Currently sold out online on their website but I managed to get my hands on these through Asos! These are proper shoes with hard soles and are not meant to be house slippers! Although they can be definitely used as such however, it would be such a big waste. These are super comfy as well, you wouldn’t want to take them off! These are also a great dupe for trending Gucci’s Princetown leather slippers for a fraction of the price too!

More furry top picks:
Missguided Faux fur sliders grey
Asos Fluffie faux fur sliders
Charles & Keith Duo-texture calf boots
Missguided Pressed faux fur coat cream
Missguided Faux shearling biker jacket pink
Charles & Keith Furry tote
Asos Pom drop earring
Suede biker jackets crush
Last but not least, is my latest obsession with suede! I’m in love with these faux suede biker jackets from Missguided. They come in many styles and colours and my favourites are mauve, powder blue, teal & grey. They come in a few different lengths and can be style in many ways & looks.
Missguided Faux suede biker jacket lilac
Here I styled my faux suede biker jacket in lilac (yes it’s lilac not pink, lighting is terrible) with a white singlet from Zara, a black maxi skirt from Asos & Charles & Keith white sandals with gold detail.
Charles & Keith T-bar sandals
Here are my fav suede jackets from Missguided:
Here are a couple of going out tops I also picked from Missguided which I love and highly recommend!
These tan & nude faux suede pieces below are a must have in every closet! The midi skirt screams Kim K and can be styled for both casual or night time looks; and the shirt is smart and would work great for any season.

Last but not least is my fav lippie at the moment: Colourpop matte liquid lipstick in ‘Times square’: a beautiful dark pinky nude beige.
This lipstick feels like velvet on my lips and lasts on for hours! I love it for everyday looks and it would also look amazing with smokey eyes.
Get it here.
That’s it for my recent outfits, trends & top fashion picks post! Hope you enjoyed it and found inspiration within the latest fashion trends. Until next time lovelies!
