A dress that combines my love for stripes AND embroidery? Yes please.

Today’s outfit of a mock neck top with stripes, a black slip dress, and falling out of love with clothes.
I recently realised I hadn’t done a refashion for quite some time. Here’s a shirt-to-tie front top DIY that doesn’t even need sewing.
DIY and refashion your own button up skirt by stealing one of your dad’s/husband’s/partner’s old button up shirts!
The holiday season and assignment marking has meant the blog has been neglected yet again, but to sign off for the year I wanted share one last DIYfor 2016.
Finally, a break in Sydney’s miserable weather to get out and take some decent photos for the blog!
Although I pretty much live in jeans, from time to time it’s nice to wear something that isn’t denim.
I’ll be the first to admit that when the Birkenstock trend came out a few years ago, I was bemused. They’re not the sexiest of the shoes, are they? Yet the street style blogs from my Google Reader (#RIP) had image upon image and story upon story from street style blogs with those darn sandals, so there had to something in them.
Back in the mid to late 90s I had a pair of white Adidas superstars that I didn’t think much of – I pretty much trashed them and gave them away after a couple of years. Who would’ve thought that they would come back with a such a force that you can wait up to two years for a pair of plain ol’ Stan Smiths?
So the white sneaker is back, with Adidas’ Stan Smiths and Superstars leading in the fash pack. Nike’s Roshe Run white trainers also seem to be a fashion ‘grammer favourite, with Superga, Lacoste and Senso popping up fairly regularly in my Instagram feed. I quite like Axel Arigato’s embossed and Vans’ perforated versions, as well as the fact that they’re slip on sneakers (essential when you’re putting on shoes and toting both toddler and infant out the door). I actually ended up buying a pair of Puma Baskets to kind of get in with the cool crowd but not, if you know what I mean.
With summer fast approaching, white sneakers would make a fresh alternative to my faithful black Converse Chuck Taylors, and I’ll probably end up wearing my Pumas with the distressed shorts I bought for $5 at Bondi markets or an A-line button through skirt (I’ve been eyeing this one off from Asos) with a simple tank or graphic tee. The one thing that irks me about this white sneaker trend? The fact that a pair of Stan Smiths can fetch up to $200 on eBay – my mid 90s pair cost about $90 and back then I found that exorbitant (I was only at university after all!).
