Another delayed blog post from May as guest blogger for Save The Last Pinker. It has been a hard task, getting to drool over and write about stunning jewellery from luxe labels. *Sigh*
Blush pink is the colour of Autumn/Winter 2014. It’s the must have colour palette for your winter wardrobe. Pale pink coats have been a favourite of fashionistas at Fashion Week events all over the world. An oversized pink coat works beautifully from the office to after work drinks. Leather is a winter staple and lends itself perfectly to a monochrome look with a pop of pink.
Enter the Sphinx Rose Quartz Choker by Ella Maximillion – feel like the goddess you are in this stunning draped chain choker. The rose quartz crystal pendant dangles elegantly from the centre of the necklace. This 92.5 sterling silver necklace is the perfect piece to wear over a plain tee for a casual look, or with a shirt or blouse for the office or the evening. This piece will certainly get a workout because of it’s versatility – it is a subtle statement piece that you’ll never get tired of wearing. Compliment the necklace with a collection of fine silver rings and a pale pink lip to pick up the colour of the quartz. After all, on Wednesdays we wear pink!

So I wrote this a few weeks ago but have been so flat out I haven’t had the chance to upload this on my blog! Following on from my previous post, I’m currently obsessed with black. And leather.
I’m wearing a very monochrome wardrobe at the moment and am enjoying every minute of it. This week’s post is inspired by leather. I’ve just ordered a pair of long, sexy over the knee boots which are going to be an absolute essential this Winter. I’m loving asymmetrical/origami hem skirts at the moment as well, which are the perfect friend for over the knee boots. Still on my list is an oversized winter coat in blush or grey.
The perfect jewels to wear with my winter outfit? Here:
This Pushmataaha pendant and ring are absolutely incredible. Something about the calcite feature stone reminds me of leopard print; I think it’s the combination of colours that I’m drawn to. I’m usually a silver wearer but I just couldn’t go past these 22k gold plated pieces. I can picture them being extremely versatile… wear them to work, to dinner, to cocktails, or over a plain white tee with jeans. The options are endless. I love that the necklace is on a long chain with a drop of 41cm, because I think it makes the piece more wearable and enables you to dress the piece down more easily for a casual look. I always gravitate towards necklaces on long chains because they are so chic and effortless.
However you choose to wear the ‘Nubian Pendant’ and ‘Babylon Ring’, one thing’s for sure: they are absolute winners and you need them in your life now.

Over the knee boots are the must have winter essential. It is essential that you find a pair that meets your needs. Consider the length, the finish (leather vs. suede), the heel height, etc. Good luck finding “the one“!

I have definitely got my money’s worth when it comes to my Birkenstocks. I thought I’d share a little collage of my styling of my Birks. They are even more versatile than I imagined and I really love them. It’s funny looking back how hesitant I was at first, because of how different they are from anything I’ve owned before. I thought to myself “am I really going to wear these?”. I’m so glad I took the plunge because they have been an absolute essential.

I’ve been lusting after these babies from Wittner for several months. I have a similar beige pair from last Winter that I absolutely love, so it was obviously completely necessary that I own a pair in black, too.
Luckily, I was gifted these gorgeous boots for Christmas by my extremely thoughtful mum.
I took them for a spin today (in Sydney’s less than sunny weather) and felt great in them. Whilst they’ll take a little wearing in, I know that soon enough I’ll be stomping around in them all Winter long.
