Although I've only just come back from being on holiday, I'm still very much operating as if I'm on holiday mode, which is largely because of the weather- and since I seem to be lacking in the summer wardrobe department, I've been eyeing off some cute summer dresses and two piece outfits from Zaful. One of the hardest things about dressing for summer is finding the perfect balance between aesthetic and comfort, but Zaful have a bunch of great swimwear pieces and dresses that would be perfect for a day at the beach, going to a festival or even a night out! If your friends are anything like mine, your plans can change in an instant and wearing something versatile definitely pays off. 

1. A black cropped tank top
If you don't own one of these, what are you even doing with your life? While they're a little harder to wear if you having a bigger bust, they go with everything! Dress them up with a thigh slit skirt and heels, or dress them down with a pair of denim shorts. So simple!

2. Sunflower Crop Top And Pompoms Shorts Set
My boyfriend went through a phase of growing sunflowers in our garden so I can't help but smile whenever I see sunflowers these days! I just love the tassel details on the hem of the shorts too. One of the best things about a crop top and shorts set is that you can mix and match with other pieces you already have in your wardrobe.

3. Plaid Bikini Set
You can never own too many bikinis, or swimsuits for the matter. This pair is perfect for lounging around by the pool, enjoying a drink and catching up with girlfriends. If you feel like dressing them up, a pair of hoop earrings would be perfect.

4. Yellow Scalloped Bikini Set
These bathers are the perfect balance between fresh and taking inspiration from vintage style. Pair them with some round sunglasses and a floppy hat for a 60s inspired beach look.

5. Backless Black swimsuit
Summer happens to be my favorite time of year to do laps around the pool, which isn't always comfortable (or possible!) when wearing a bikini. I find doing laps around the pool to be an incredibly restorative activity that gives my mind time to wander.

6. Striped Cami Shift Dress
In summer I gravitate towards dresses that can take you from day to night and this is one of them. I can just as easily imagine myself going out to brunch with friends on a Sunday and drinking some fresh smoothies.

7. Checked Bowknot Cut Out Mini Dress
This cute dress features a gingham lemon print and a bow knot at the back! It's those little details that can turn a simple summer dress into something special.
8. Cartoon Zebra Pattern Bucket Hat
No matter what you're doing or where you are a bucket hat is a must have. Your skin will thank you for it in the long-term and a bucket hat can easily be squished or squashed into your everyday bag. This one features a cool graphic print that's sure to make strangers smile.

9. Circle Tassel Hoop Earrings
Remember when I mentioned wearing hoop earrings with bikinis before? I had these babies in mind. They even come in different colours!

10. Ginger Cut Out Crop Top And Shorts Set
The best thing about summer? Lounging around the house. If you're not a pajamas all-day kind of girl, I recommend this super cute crop top and shorts set. I'd argue it's the perfect thing to wear then drinking a glass of wine and watching trashy television.

Tinsel Town

Wearing: Tinsel jacket by Rachel Burke, Romance Was Born leggings and Dr Marten boots.

Hello! It's been a while hasn't it? I took a few weeks off to recharge my batteries, visiting family and friends back in Melbourne and also stumbled across Rachel Burke's installation at Melbourne Central. I'm excited to announce I'm in the process of making my own tinsel jackets (something I've been toying with for months now), while also juggling my PhD, renovating the house... Well you know what they say! The only thing worse than being busy is not being busy and I've got no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
