A T O U C H O F L A V E N D E R .







(Gifted Modcloth Coat, Gifted Shona Joy Lace Dress, Topshop Socks, Vintage Bag, Miu Miu Heels)

It seems my love for Autumn has well and truly kicked in. Cold enough to start wearing light cardigans, warm enough to still wear lace shorts. If it gets a tad cold? Add a pair of knee highs and hot cup of coffee and you're at just the right temperature and looking adorable too. Yes, autumn is and always has been my favourite season with a beautiful colour palette to match. Right now I'm loving maroons, camel, shades of red and burnt oranges for this season and have a feeling I'll be playing with bright colours and a touch of purple too.

I received this beautiful lace dress from Australian designer Shona Joy and Modcloth coat back in December. The coat was a reward for being Modcloth's Blogger of the Month but unfortunately It's been too warm to even think about taking it out of the cupboard during summer so I'm only photographing it now. I absolutely love the faux fur collar and the length is just perfect. Do i even need to speak about the poms poms? By far my favourite part :)

Things seem to be pretty crazy here at the moment. I'm feeling more inspired than ever to be working towards a life where doors will open for you and can't help but think even if they don't, well, you just open them yourself.
