Reviving retro

I have always been a fan of many things vintage/retro and I absolutely love the fact that standout prints are one of the trends this year and that ASOS produced this matching cropped top and pencil skirt.

This little ensemble matches the vintage pair of sunnies I picked up 2 years ago and I can already see myself wearing these pieces as seperates - as you know I love mixing up my clothes!


 

 

 

 

 
Outfit - ASOS
Sunglasses - unknown, vintage
Shoes - Wedges by PeepToe
Lipstick - NARS


These photos were taken during my most recent holiday in Malaysia which means I got to enjoy an extended summer, extra sunshine (seriously photographer & I were  sweating like crazy for these photos!!! hehe) and a chance to wear this cute as outfit before Sydney reaches spring / summer in several months time.  

I am a little bit glad I did take these photos overseas ...I think I would've been too shy and embarrassed to do the same in Sydney - all the people watching! gahhh


XOXO B
