Choosing the right material is so important when going on a hot, summer holiday. I made the mistake of bringing along a lot of viscose and polyester which I quickly discovered didn’t breathe in the heat wave that I experienced.

Luckily, I had this airy cotton outfit at my disposal which worked perfectly as a light, night time outfit to wear to dinner. Another great alternative is to invest in some good linen items – I bought some shorts and a top in Milos and have been living in them!

Over the next few weeks I will be posting a whole lot of summer stuff as I am currently on holiday in the Greek Islands. To start off my mini summer series I thought I’d share a summer outfit.

There is currently a heat wave in Greece and I have been struggling to find anything that is summery enough in my wardrobe. This outfit has been fantastic for the sunny days with a super airy skirt and light top. Sunglasses and a cap are essential during the day so I paired it with navy accessories to pick up the colour in the skirt. I also really like the brightness of the top to add a real pop of summer colour to the outfit!

I recently went on a trip to Japan and when I was in Tokyo, I had a good shopping day in Harajuku. It was a bit cold so i went with a puffer jacket and mesh top underneath to keep warm. Some of my favourite stores were Kinji for vintage clothing and XLARGE for street fashion.

Sneakers Season

Sneakers are by far my favourites shoes to wear day or night. They are so comfortable, give the outfit a street look and can be worn with almost any outfit. So, here is my slightly crazy collection of sneakers!

I love wearing my black trainers any time I might be on my feet for a long time and want to be comfortable but stylish.

 

Workout Time

These two are perfect for any workout I might be doing. They are both incredibly comfortable and supportive.

 

Casual Colours

These three are my most casual, classic sneakers. I love wearing the bright two to add a cool element to my look and my white sneakers are great with any outfit!

In winter I love layering oversized jumpers with turtlenecks for a casual look. Not only does it keep you warm, it’s super comfortable as well. I’ve paired the jumpers with mum jeans and sneakers for the ultimate lazy outfit!

Splendour In The Grass 2016

I recently went to the Splendour In The Grass music festival in Byron Bay and it was the most amazing experience! I had the best and craziest time with my friends listening to great music and enjoying the atmosphere.

The festival is known for being incredibly muddy and raining every day but we were so lucky this year and it didn’t rain once! It was actually quite hot and we were so unprepared coming from winter in Melbourne, but we made do with the clothes we had. So, here were my outfits for the 3 days, hope you enjoy!

 

Day 1: Space Invader

On the first day, I went for a jeans and top look. I’m obsessed with anything mesh and I love this top and jeans combination because they both have patches on them!

Day 2: Back In Black

The second day was the hottest of the three. I went with the lightest weight clothing I brought, sticking to a light t-shirt, bralette and leather-look shorts.

Day 3: Match It Up

Day three was fairly windy so I went with my leggings co-ord and my light bomber jacket to keep warm.

You can make any autumn/winter outfit look 100x better by adding a hat. It can add a cool and casual element to your outfit. And there’s always the added bonus of hiding a bad hair day!
