My first post since taking a little bit of a break from blogging – sometimes it’s a good idea to give yourself some time out to get re-energised and re-inspired.

I had been chasing these Adidas’ Stan Smiths with platform soles (I’m a sucker for anything with a platform) for months as it had sold out so quickly on their first release. But then, my gorgeous friend Kym found them for me (here)! They’re so comfortable and they go with everything, however my favourite item to wear with them with is this pleated midi skirt.

Ok, I know I mentioned in my previous post that I really wanted to try and experiment more with colour this year, but I just cannot stay away. The all-black combination of a dress, ankle socks, loafers or lace-ups and a small bag is a uniform for me.

I’ve been trying really hard to steer away from black lately, it is summer after all. I also vowed to experiment a bit more this year; perhaps wear more colour and try silhouettes I wouldn’t normally go for – this printed pant is the perfect example. And not new, but new for me is pairing brown with navy.
