Back to work, back to 'real' life and back to cold old Melbourne. (And still no camera, thanks Canon!) And so my winter wardrobe finally comes into play for 2012. While I admit dressing for winter in glamorous fur and sumptuous leather has its appeal, there really is nothing that could prepare me for going from 30+ temperatures in NYC to barely 4 degrees when i role out of bed in cold Melbourne! Not wanting to be sucked into the drab and dreary blacks and greys winter dressing normally equates to, I am loving this Dianne Von Furstenburg dress that I picked up in New York. (I mean what is not to love about her amazing pieces!?) A classic belted at the waist silk shift, I adore the print and it's amazing color play on a classic spot. And because everything is all about back detail right now, I love the way it buttons completely down the back.
And if I can't have my daily Starbucks, my extremely hot soy from Cafe Q in Clifton Hill will have to do. Arrrgghh Melbourne, I'm home. When can i go again? x K
London has gone crazy for khaki, and I am loving it. Stud collared shirts? Check. Camouflage jackets with juxtaposed bling pocket detail? Yes please. Oversized knits with studded shoulders? Don't mind if i do. And the perfect way to wear it is by teaming a great khaki piece with something amazingly girly underneath. (Especially loving the Topshop military jacket and lace dress combo above!) Don't feel ready to attempt this girly vs. tough girl look? Go old school and try a camo back pack. The perfect accessory, army style. x K

I was recently getting my black and white vibe on in NYC, check out the post here !
I have spent the last few days in Los Cabos, Mexico, finding inspiration for a little project I have been working on. (Hopefully, which I can share with you all soon!) And I immediately fell in love with all the gorgeous shades of blue on offer. From delicate hanging lanterns shaped as hearts, to the endless blue of the ocean, I was completely mesmerised. (And of course, the guacamole and fish tacos weren't too bad either!) My one regret? Not having the luggage space and/or ability to carry home breakables, as I would have stocked up on all the amazing pieces of glass wear Mexico had to offer! Sadly for me I am officially on the home stretch now. Can I stay? If only. Hope you enjoy the pics! x K
