Floral Ruffle Dress, Frayed Cardi, Hillier Hobo | Cami, Polka Dot Pencil Skirt, Balenciaga Velo

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:
JacketZara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
Scarf: Cotton On white pashmina
Bracelets: the usual
Dress: gifted Valleygirl floral ruffle top dress
BeltJeanswest black braided belt that came with this Aztec Print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque Flats in Two Tone blush and black
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hillier Hobo in blush pink with silver hardware


This dress was another piece my sister gave me after her wardrobe clear out. I really like the floral print and ruffle top. I thought the pink and blue matched well with it, even the shoes, but Cooper's managed to cover them with his fluffy tail, haha!
My hair is tied up as I got absolutely drenched on the way to work after leaving my umbrella at home. I tried to think my messed up hair was "natural waves" as it dried but really it was just messy, so tied it back for the office.


Last worn: Zara cardi, white pashmina, Marc Jacobs flats, Hillier hobo bag.

Here's what I wore to work today:
JacketJeanswest black cardi
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
Bracelets: the usual
Top: Jeanswest 'Maria' cami in cream
SkirtReview 'Ziggy' polka dot pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats in black and white
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot 2011 RH Velo from Reebonz


A lot of these pieces have been worn together before, and the outline of this outfit is very similar to yesterday's with the ruffle top! The dreary weather hasn't left me very inspired lately. This time next week I'll be in Melbourne though, I hear it's glorious sunshine there and I'm hoping it sticks around for our arrival!


Last worn: black cardi, red skull scarf, polka dot pencil skirt, ruffle cami, mouse flats, Balenciaga velo.

  29. I hope you don't mind me asking, but how tall are you? I am asking because I want to compare your height to mine to see if the Hillier will suit me.
