ENTER FOSSIL Q.


Fossil Q watch | Jasmine Alexa from Style Runner top and pants | Forever New coat | Chanel shoes

Being organised is a must for me. If I don't write to do lists, set calendar reminders or have every detail of my day planned out I will forget what I'm doing, where I'm meant to be and most likely miss a whole array of appointments, events and forget to text people back.

Enter the Fossil Q. This beautiful piece of technology is more than just your average wrist watch. You can track your daily activity, things like how many steps you take and how many calories you've burned. It connects to your phone meaning you can sync everything up to have the watch send you notifications from which ever apps you chose with a small buzz to the wrist. My personal favourite is being able to use Spotify from the watch, while I'm excising it becomes tedious reaching for your phone from your pocket to change the song, the Fossil Q allows you to do that with the tap of a button on your wrist. 

I've had the watch for a little over a week now and I have loved playing around with all the features and being able to customise it to suit my individual needs. Not only is it keeping me on top of all my daily tasks and appointments but it looks so incredibly beautiful and complements every outfit. It's a great little helping hand (on your wrist) especially if you're someone like me who is often on the move. 

The Fossil Q is now available in store and online here.

SPRING TIME, MESH TIME.


The Lair top, skirt & choker | Cotton On denim | Christie Nicole bralette | Simmi boots

Spring has arrived in Melbourne! Can I just say how excited I am, the warm weather just lifts my mood by about 75%/. The blossoms are out, the sun is shining meaning it's finally warm enough to wear those amazing sheer tops you've been stock piling over winter.

I am seriously obsessed with this skirt from The Lair, the cut is so flattering and the cheeky thigh split gives it that little somethin' extra. I feel like I should also let you know that it comes in denim with raw edges...yep I got both. Also as you all probably know by now, I'm not much of a heels gal but these booties are actually comfortable and I can wear them comfortably for more than 20 mins so I'm never letting them go.

PRINT MIXING.


Somedays Lovin top | Jacquemus skirt | Puma creepers | Louis Vuitton backpack

Lately I've been stepping away from my usual black and white looks and being drawn in the direction of prints, colours and patters. I know for most this isn't crazy, but for me - someone who is always happy wearing a pair of black culottes and a tee it kind of is. 

I am beyond obsessed with my all black Puma creepers, so naturally when the camo pair came out I had to get my hands on them and can we just take a minute to appreciate just how freakin' amazing they are!? I've been pairing them with this plaid skirt from Jacquemus and loving the contrast in prints. Seriously guys, I'm not slowing down with the prints and colours anytime soon.

TRAVEL DIARY: MORNINGTON PENINSULA


Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs | Polperro Wines Villa

There's nothing better than a little mid week getaway, last week I headed down to the Mornington Peninsula for a relaxing two days. 

Looking back on it now I wished that we stayed for two weeks but with the boring things like work and uni taking up most of our lives, we found two days to be the perfect amount of time to wind down and take time to just relax and de-stress. Our first stop was at the beautiful Peninsula Hot Springs, I'd never been before but always heard great things. We had the most amazing time enjoying the many different spas and pools that were on offer, I literally turned into a prune. 

From there we headed to Polperro Wines to spend the night in one of the villas. I can't express in words just how freaking amazing this room was, I literally screamed when we opened the door. A huge bed, amazing decor, open fire place and best of all a massive hot tub equipped with a fountain that ran down the wall, I was literally in heaven. 

Seriously a 10/10 experience, I can't wait to go back!

GOLD PLEATS.


Hello Parry skirt | Kit & Ace top | Forever New bomber | Adidas sneakers 

From the moment I laid eyes on this gold pleated skirt I knew I needed it in my life. It's so different from what I would normally gravitate too but I think thats why I love it so much. 

I've been wearing it with simple black tees tied at the front to show of the shape of the skirt then pairing it back with a pair of sneakers to dress it down and make it more wearable for everyday.

SLIP DRESSING.


Fame & Partners dresses | Tiger Mist bomber | Nike sneakers | Saucony Sneakers | Rag & Bone bag

Slip dresses have made a huge comeback this season, they're no longer only to be worn as undergarments but are now the main focus on many runways. Personally, I love dressing them down, wearing them with t-shirts underneath to give them a casual edge and to make them wearable for everyday. 

Here are my two favourites by Fame & Partners. The black mid length silk dress is a wardrobe staple, I love wearing mine with a printed tee underneath and a bomber jacket over the top with sneakers for everyday. If I wanted to wear it out I would loose the tee and throw on a choker and a dark lip to make it that little bit more dressy, but still wear it with sneakers for comfort. I didn't know I would fall in love with the two toned pink and grey dress but it is perfect in every way. Again, I love wearing a baggy tee underneath and pairing it with sneakers to play down the girly vibes.

BACK TO BASICS.


Grana basics | Maurie & Eve skirt | Puma creepers

If you're going to fill your closet with something, make it basics. I seriously can't get enough of those black white and grey pieces that make up the perfect base for any outfit. Grana is my one stop shop for all my basic needs (yes I'm basic).

I have been loving linen lately, on my bed sheets and on my body. I find that its just such a wearable material that doesn't seem to age after each wash (a big plus in my books), its extremely light but in a strange way also warm. I love pairing my linen tee with a silk skirt, some overalls or literally anything because its the most wearable piece ever. Some of my other favourite pieces from Grana include these Chinese silk pants they are seriously comfortable and sit at the perfect spot on your waist, great to wear with cropped tops or just a simple tee as I have done here. 

If you want to have a look at all the other amazing things Grana has to offer, head over to their website here and if you see something you just gotta get your hands on use my code 'JACQUIExGRANA' for 10% off at the checkout.
