Sometimes, the best pieces are found unexpectedly and thanks to my short-ish legs, this “tunic top” is actually the perfect mini dress. I fell in love with the softness of this light blush pink colour and lately have been integrating more of these hues into my daily life – cue lighter lipstick shades and rose-gold eyeshadows. I fell in love with my Naked 3 palette all over again.
With a dress this flowy and feminine, these metallic stiletto sandals reminiscent of a spiky disco ball, were the perfect match to add some edge. Layering with a leather jacket, even in 20 degree+ weather seemed like an obvious choice to pull the whole look together.

It feels strange but good, writing a new post in what feels like ages (technically it’s only been two months). I’ve always made a point of only creating content that I actually enjoy making since I don’t see a positive outcome in putting effort into things that doesn’t make you happy. I’ve felt somewhat uninspired lately and felt the need to take a step back, do some self-reflecting and self-discovery without any distractions. After a short break, I couldn’t think of a better way to start blogging again, than by working with my favourite internet and real life friend, Calyssa (http://foxglovephoto.com)
I get outfit inspiration when I’m shopping and getting dressed, from surroundings in my daily life and love mixing different textures together. Unintentionally, I also featured this top in my last post, styling it in a slightly more androgynous way with pants and my over-loved leather jacket – I’m currently looking for a new one, HELP! Here, having the shirt half tucked into the high waisted leather skirt, shows off my curves while still keeping everything very minimal and light – especially on those warmer Summer days (whenever they decide to get here and stay). x

I was contacted about a month ago inquiring about my interest in a watch collaboration my initial response was hesitant. I don’t wear watches, since I hadn’t found one that felt like the right fit for my personal style. So, you can imagine my excitement while browsing Valor’s products and seeing this beautiful marble piece. I received this watch in the mail last week and was so excited to open it. I can honestly say that photos don’t do it justice and it was love at first sight. I’ve been wearing it daily and have received so many compliments on it.
Valor is an Australian based company, created by Tonet Bermejo. When creating the brand, his main goal was to bridge the gap between affordability and quality product – without compromising design. Looking on the website, you’ll notice a consistent theme between all of these designs; a logo free face, sleek band and minimal branding let the design speak for itself and allow the person wearing it to style it to fit them personally.
When it came to styling, because of its classic and minimal appearance, this watch was easy enough to really pair it with anything. For this specific post, I wanted to keep the palette monochromatic and really just work with textures. Mixing black leather with the white mesh, and these silky jogger pants paired with these spiked heels. All while obviously complimenting the watch and creating a cohesive look.
If you like what you see, check out the rest of Valor’s styles (www.valorwatch.com) and if something catches your eye, you can use the code MEAG15 at checkout to save 15% off your order. I also believe free shipping is offered worldwide, which is always a plus!

Disclaimer: Valor sent me this watch as a collaboration, however my opinion of the brand and product is 100% my own.
Since I’m not one to heavily accessorize, usually keeping it to a statement necklace or bracelet, I look for little details in the clothing I wear to add interest to the overall look. Both this turtleneck and heels caught my attention for the small details that make them different from your basic shirt or stiletto. The subtle ribbed detailing of this top and longer than average sleeves instantly caught my attention. I love how the tight silhouette of the turtleneck looks tucked into denim with a loose fitting vest layered over top. In the shoe department, I’m not someone to jump, or walk, in a 120mm heel, but after slipping my feet into Cross Blake, I instantly fell in love with how sexy they looked and the texture of the fishnet material on the toe. In addition to the fishnet/patent leather combination, I can’t help but shoot heart eyes at how these heels make my feet feel like they’re wearing lingerie.
