These days, I try to keep a safe distance from investing in too many bold prints. I find that many printed pieces tend to be so inflexible that they can't be matched to too many other pieces in my wardrobe, or are so loud, that I easily tire of them. At the moment, in our rule books, there are  two types of prints we generally go for - subtle patterns like stripes and repetitive prints that are memorable yet subdued. This Gail Sorronda Ariel print top is just that. Since I set eyes on this collection in fashion week last year, I know I had to make one of these prints mine...

These days, there has been two things I've been severely smitten with (1) Frayed denim and (2)the charms of the all white out paradigm - both of which, beautifully intersect in this marvellous Alexander Wang summer dress. Plus,  I'm always a huge fan of the 'paper bag' silhouette, especially in these unbearably warmer months!

Because I haven't quite put it out there in the blogosphere, you cuties may not have picked up that the younger months of 2015 have meant huge changes to my daily priority/activity spectra. By quite an onslaught, this past month has been the greatest game-changer - I began studying Postgrad Medicine in an unacquainted city (Perth) on the other side of the continent, where I know no-place and no-one and most importantly had to  psyche back into a 'uni' mentality that my mind had just entirely zoned out of for the course of 2014.

This meant new transitions to my daily regimes - in particular, I've taken a conscious stab at changing up (or more or less refining) my dressing game a bit to cater to my 8am-5pm (and beyond) med-student lifestyle. And so, in terms of outfits these days, I tend to stick to a simple philosophy- a no-brainer regime that means that I'm not tip-toeing around piles of indecision of clothes on the ground before I have to jet out of the house in the AM - and this approach is to wear simply impactful pieces that can be worn in lots of combinations and permutations - (mostly monochrome to avoid the woes of matching prints and patterns).

During the summer, I am almost invariably drawn to light, airy all white outfits. Or, more all less, irrespective of season, I am enticed by the allure of the "white out effect". It seems that very quickly, the majority of my wardrobe has become predominated by white pieces. The newest player in my white out regime is this Cameo tie front top - I am loving its beautiful, clean silhouette and its samurai reminiscent vibes...

Weekends to me generally represent a bonafide flexibility relaxation and ease in so many lifestyle aspects. The obvious slow starts where the comforts of bed can truly be appreciated, the amalgamation of breakfast and lunch, and relaxed, no fuss no brainer outfits like these. In fact, as you may know, I kinda can't resist restricting this relaxed kinda get-up to my days of only, especially when an all white trio or duo or frayed denim is in question.

PINSTRIPE



I'm wearing 
earrings FORD AND HARRIS
bag DEADLY PONIES 
shoes MOLLINI

I've always been a double (or triple or quadruple) or nothing kinda gal. If I wear a white top, I can't resist the temptation to wear all white everything else. If I buy a pink blouse, I must actively seek out a pink bottom to wear it with. I am all about the compound impactful-ness of repetition, particularly when in the bounds of stripes. Plus, the silhouette of this Finders Keepers duo is perhaps one of my most coveted this summer. I love the balance in the combination of low-necked spaghetti strapped tanks with relaxed trousers. And I am seriously digging the cropped nature of these - so flattering on my shortness of stature!

These days, I've become seriously smitten with the white out effect, especially in this steamy weather There is something about the accumulation of the perfectly white pieces that makes it so subtly impactful and enticing to me. In particular, I love the relaxed sporty-chic vibes of this Jessica Tovey trio, particularly the synergy of the oversized pockets and pleats. 

Tasfia's ECG print 'heartbeat' Alexander Wang t-shirt could not be any more on Tas's medical student wavelength - and so she really jumped at the change to make it hers when found on sale...
