Spring is here.. and it's time to dress the part. For easy Sunday morning strolls I like to pair a denim jacket with a midi dress & Birkenstocks. Done & dusted and you're out the door x Sharday

The saying 'the best was saved for last' correctly describes my last shoot with Berkley. It's funny that this building is right across the street from where I live and I never once considered it as a background for a blog shoot. Along comes Berkley with her impeccable eye and voila. The purple paint pops against my blue shirt & black/grey plaid coat. Without a doubt, these were my favourite snaps from our time together. That girls got talent! x Sharday

There are so many people that think wearing head-to-toe black ensembles are boring. I couldn't disagree with them more. It's all in the details! Take this Zara mesh sweater with it's intricate sheerness or this Community shirt with it's soft washed down linen fabric. Pair it with a textured leather purse, Celine shades and you're good to go. Prove those haters wrong ;) x Sharday

Lately I've noticed my Insta-snaps have been projecting some serious Summer vibes. Quite likely this is due to my vacation back home to Oz & 26hr stint in LA. Bring on the Summertime!

Spring is in the air and change is imminent. And to tell you the truth.. the timing couldn't be better. This past week has been an absolute roller coaster. I was let go from my job (low) and will celebrate my birthday tomorrow (high). Moving forward people.

These snaps were taken on the last truly cold day of Winter. I'm talking bone chilling, teeth chattering cold. So obviously when the sun did decide to pay Vancouver a visit, I lapped it up. Those little sun drenched moments make you forget about your Winter worries. And there's nothing better.

P.s. Check out my Q&A with Berkley here.

P.s. Sorry for my MIA-ness lately. A trip back home + jetlag has made me a very bad blogger. Please forgive me ;)

The golden hour. That moment just before the day ends when suddenly everything turns to perfect warm hues. I've seen it documented many times.. but finally I got to experience it. Of course, the lady behind the lens is the one who should be credited for the awesome-ness of these images. 

P.s. Currently sitting at Vancouver airport on my way to LAX then Melbourne. Can't wait to see all my friends & family and experience a late Summer!

nail colour diary #4

INSPIRATION

This weeks shade: RED RED WINE. Whether you call it burgundy, merlot, oxblood - there's something about those red wine shades. The perfect Fall/Winter shade. It's my 'go to' colour when I can't decide.. which pretty much means I'm wearing it every few weeks.

RESULTS

1f40a6a0885511e3864a1248f379be2f_8.jpg

OPI's 'Malaga Wine' is hands down the best burgundy shade going around. Very happy with the results thanks to my lovely nail guy, Stephen @ Yaletown Nails.

A denim chambray shirt is one of the most effortless wardrobe essentials you can own. Chuck on a pair of (contrasting) jeans, a statement coat, loafers.. and you've good to go. I've been sporting similar variations of this look for a few weeks now. Easy peasy.. ready for work! x Sharday
