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 ♡ Birks

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.

OOTD: Floral Black & White.



I found this gorgeous black & white floral dress in Glassons and fell in love immediately. I love the print, the length is great, and it’s a dressy material too so very versatile. I threw on my denim jacket and trusty “Chunk” sandals from Windsor Smith for a casual look.


This denim jacket is one my favourite things. I bought it from Urban Outfitters in the UK in September. It’s vintage Levis. I love the colour and the oversized fit.. it goes with everything.


Now, the accessories. I’m a silver girl, apart from my gorgeous rose gold Michael Kors oversized watch. So whenever I find pretty silver things, I just can’t help myself. I’m loving quartz pieces at the moment. The necklace is definitely luxe for less, only costing $16.95 from Sportsgirl. My Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ is luxe for a little more, setting me back a reasonable $99.00. 



My ‘Chunk’ Windsor Smith sandals get a good workout. They’re supremely comfortable and they go with so much.

The Details:
Glassons “Printed Racer Front Dress” ($49.95) buy me
Levis @ Urban Outfitters Denim Jacket
Windsor Smith “Chunk” Sandals ($89.95) buy me
Sportsgirl “Crystal 2 Drop Necklace” ($16.95) buy me

My latest purchase: Cut out boots.


So you should know that I first saw these boots on Boxing Day or the day after and Windsor Smith in Parramatta had sold out of my size. At this point I should have put my detective shoes on and got a-searchin’, but I didn’t. I couldn’t stop thinking about them. Eventually I pulled my finger out and started searching. Every Windsor Smith store was out, including the online store. I was devastated; especially because Windsor Smith had 40% off everything in store, and 30% off online. Pretty much as big a discount as you could ever hope for on a current, trendy item. Completely by chance, I discovered Windsor Smith at DFO Homebush. I hadn’t found it earlier, because for some reason DFO isn’t listed on the stockist. DFO had a full size range and still had the 40% off. It was one of the best days of 2013 so far! Naturally I begged them to take my money. So now, I have these pretties on my feet. 😀 So far they’re a tough mistress, but no doubt once worn in, they will be super comfy and will be the prefect trans-seasonal shoe. 🙂

The ‘Envy’ shoe is $179.95 full price…

Sorry about the essay – I just had to share my story with you.

Love always,
