I’m a creature of habit when it comes to redefining my personal style and replenishing my wardrobe, and what I love and gravitate towards is animal print. No surprises there. But today it’s all about specificity as I may just have found my favourite species of animal print- Giraffe. I’m not sure whether it’s the monochromatic colour scheme or the geographical shape that has me hooked, but I literally can’t get enough of this print!

This little Veronika Maine gem has become the shining star of my Autumn wardrobe. Worn with metallics as I have styled above, or boyfriend denim- this piece maintains it’s statement status, while walking on the wild side. Suddenly I’m seeing some double meaning of Beyonce’s #saschafierce.

On Wednesday I had the absolute pleasure of joining Brisbane’s finest ladies of leisure for The Hat Box High Tea event, hosted by the Emporium Hotel. After a meet and greet with the lovely guests, and snapping their sensational style, I sat down to enjoy a delicious spread of fresh scones, macaroons and finger sandwiches. Was it worth breaking the diet?- you bet it was!

Aside from being snapped with the charming Dale Olsson from The Hat Box, my highlight of the event was watching a parade of the new season race wear from The Hat Box. Dale’s commentary on the parade discussed the major trends of the winter racing season- my favourite being black and white with a touch of red!

Social Snaps

Aside from the beautiful array of headpieces showcased, the Brisbane ladies certainly made a statement wearing bold colours, spectacular accessories and flawless makeup. Here’s a small glimpse of the stylish guests.

 St Frock Elle Tartan Top, Mink Pink Get Serious PU Skirt, Jo Mercer Tanessa Heels, Lovisa Ear Cuff (similar style here) and Chain Link Bracelet.

Who would have thought tartan would make a comeback this season? This time round I’m ditching the schoolyard for a grungy car park, and swapping pleated skirts for PU leather. It’s all about that rebellious ‘tude and nothing screams punk rock princess like a crystallised ear cuff.

With me is the ace gang, Erin Smith Photography and Ghassani Swaryandini and together we three are up to all kinds of no good. But as fashion is fearless, as are we! School’s out…for now.

 St Frock Frenchie Jumper, Factorie Boyfriend Jean, Seed Heritage Wide Brim Hat, Lovisa Star Necklace (similar style here), Jo Mercer Tanessa Heel (similar style here).

For the last 8 years, I have not owned a pair of jeans. True story. Not only do I find denim to be rather uncomfortable, but as genetics dictates I am never lucky enough to find a flattering cut on my petite, short-legged physic. Now I have been totally won over by these Factorie Boyfriend Jeans, the relaxed fit and distressed fabric makes it super fun to style, especially with this cute St Frock Frenchie knit.

This outfit is very situational of the Brisbane weather at the moment and I have to report is practical and rain friendly- minus the stilettos of course. Warm, comfy and saving my hair from the rain, what more could a girl ask for?

Erin Smith Photography has returned to TBS blog after her incredible Japanese/Korean adventure and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her back! I was so excited to get snap happy with my girls Erin and Ghassani again and with giggles, macaroon obsessing and a present from Korea (Erin you are a doll!), I left the Valley excited for the fashion adventures to come for the A team.
