Sometimes a black and white outfit needs a little colour pop
I absolutely hate outfit repeating but I’ve found myself doing this a lot whilst living in Melbourne. It’s what to expect since I’m basically living out of a suit case, not literally. I do have a wardrobe but I don’t have a lot of clothes with me since the majority of my clothes and shoes are in Perth. 2017 is also coming to an end, slowly but surely….. so now I am gradually taking what I don’t need back to Perth every time I fly back for a visit.
I made sure I kept my staples so I can mix and match with a few special pieces here and there. It’s so hard, it’s natural for a girl to always carry more than she needs.
If you’re a regular on my Instagram page then this outfit might look familiar from an event I went to a couple of months ago in Melbourne. I never got the chance to get some outfit photos to share on my blog so when I got invited to another event earlier this month with my girl Tarlie from TwiceTK I knew it would be a great opportunity to take photos prior to the event. Therefore, I decided to outfit repeat. The only difference is that I wore a different coloured headscarf which I think went nicely. I’m really digging the burnt orange colour with stripes, blue and white stripes in particular.
I also absolutely love how great and versatile it is to wear a variety of different coloured headscarves as I’ve found that they can really make an outfit look different. I previously wore this outfit with a black headscarf but I seriously love it ten times more with this burnt orange scarf by Doosy.
So, before I end this post, I will give you a quick run-down on what I’m wearing and I will link the retailers or something similar at the bottom underneath my signature.
I’m wearing my trusty Zara leather jacket which I purchased a couple of years ago in Canberra. I’m wearing my SheIn bell-sleeve top in a collaboration I did with them earlier this year. Macgraw black skirt that I got at a killer bargain from Rebel Muse during VOSN, my Tony Bianco Fraya boots which have been a Godsend during the ridiculous and unpredictable Melbourne weather. Also, another life saver for my public transport life is my baby Palm Springs backpack. I’ve got leggings underneath as well for more coverage, you know how we Hijabi’s do.
