Dotti Design-A-Bits

| Knit: Ksubi | Jeans, Shoes & Bag: Sportsgirl | Sunglasses: House Of Harlow 1960 |

I took these photos a few days ago when the weather was still really cold, and now I'm sitting here two days later in the sweltering heat. Amazing how quickly this bipolar weather is able to transition. These faded blue jeans are officially my new favourite. I really needed a good pair of baby blue jeans in my closet, as I only recently came to realise that I have a habit of buying jeans in a dark denim. I'm still rocking the high heel meets sports shoe trend everywhere I go and I'm quickly forgetting about all my other shoes...

One more thing before I go! Dotti is holding a competition that invites users to design their own take on a 'Festival Dress' for this upcoming season. The winner will be based on the who gets the most amount of votes as well as the approval of the panel of judges! This is a huge opportunity that could possibly allow me to see my design be made and rolled out into Dotti stores throughout Australia. I'm begging my loyal readers to please please vote for my design that is pictured below! Just click here to vote and find the design below!

To all of you that vote, thank you so much! It means a lot!

LV Delightful

 | Jeans & Blazer: Guess | Shoes: Sportsgirl | Bag: Louis Vuitton | Hat: Forever New | Sunglasses: House of Harlow 1960 |

Louis Vuitton is an all time legend for creating such luxurious and beautiful bags. I might just add here at the beginning that the bag is my mum's and not mine. This one is the medium sized one (Delightful MM), which is pretty much the perfect size for day-to-day wear. The added small pouch component was from a previous LV of my mum's that she bought many years ago and cleverly hooked it onto the gold rim of this bag for easy access to her mobile phone. This bag has definitely made my (wish) list of the VERY distant future. ;)

Pop of Orange

| Jumpsuit: Chica Booti | Scarf: Forever New | Hat: Sportsgirl | Sunglasses: House of Harlow | Watch: Diva | Bracelet: Sancerre | Shoes: Dr. Martens |

Orange has recently become one of my most favourable colours to wear. What colours we choose to wear is something that we disregard when faced with a large selection of coloured jeans, tops and accessories. I used to gravitate to whatever colour used to catch my eye without trying it on first, and then find myself disappointed afterwards. What I didn't realise was that it wasn't the item itself that didn't look right on me, it was the colour.

 A colour that you will rarely ever see me in is yellow because it simply doesn't go well with my skin tone. Yellow looks great on people with tan skin without washing them out completely. However similar to yellow, orange is a subtle alternative that adds a pop of colour against my pale complexion. This jumpsuit and hat are favourite's of mine and since putting them on in this post, I noticed just how much I need to add an infusion of orange into my wardrobe.

On another note, last night was Vogue's Fashion Night Out in Sydney and from what I've seen and heard via instagram and twitter, it was a huge success! I couldn't make it to VFNO this year but there's always next year! Oh, and the MTV VMA's are on today! Red Carpet wise, Taylor Swift put her own spin on the 'white on white' trend of the moment, wearing an elegant white pantsuit by J. Mendel. Emma Watson is another favourite of mine, wearing a stunning Peter Pilotto dress that channeled a mixture of patterns and woven detailing. Both star's sense of style are a huge inspiration on me because they embody a class and elegance that has evolved over the years.
