Pink Floral Top, Check Pencil Skirt, Balenciaga City | Ruffle Dress, Hermes Twilly, Tan Flats

Here's what I wore to work on Monday:
Sunnies: pink leopard print sunglasses from Paddy's Markets in Sydney
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic pearly grey double tour bracelet
Top: Papyrus floral shirt and pink tank gifted from my grandma
SkirtAsos tailored checked workwear pencil skirt
ShoesRubi primo ballet flats in silver
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet


This is an outfit that seemed like a good idea at the time when I planned it the night before, but I didn't actually try it on until I wore it Monday. Although I like the pink and grey together, it's not a great shape. Maybe should have added a belt or tucked the top into the skirt. Had no time to do anything when I rushed out the door in the morning. Will know the next time.

Very busy at work with lots of meetings and trying to get all of my tasks for the week finished before I go off to Melbourne. Wanted to be comfortable so a nice bright dress seemed like a good choice to wear. Thought I'd be really colourful and pair the pink dress with my purple Balenciaga too. I liked the way it turned out, usually I stay away from wearing other colours with this dress but I like the pink and purple, what do you think?

1 day left before Melbourne - if you have any ideas for things for me to do or see while I'm there this week, please let me know :)

  7. I only wish I could give you a million tps on what to do in Melbourne, but sadly, a ticket to Australia has not been in my budget yet, haha. It's the most far I can get from my country I think, so I would really really love to wander Australias deserts and beaches one day :) Will you share photos from Melbourne with us when you return? :D

    I also really love your deep pink dress! It's something I would wear in summer too :) I love the ruffles and the cheerful colour. xo

  20. In love with the red dress! I'm "fair" or "pale" like you are too and I reckon a red hue like this really flatters our skintone :)

  22. love the colour combo mica - i some times feel my outfits are not as successful as they can be too but that's the whole point of experimenting! you look great still + love the double tour bracelet, been thinking of getting another one for myself, but can't decide on a colour :)

    melbourne is so much fun, i know you'll have a brilliant time there. love the cafes on hardware lane in the CBD, a little french one called creperie le triskel is one of my faves and they do such beautiful crepes! cumulus + attica + lupino are some of my fave restaurants there.. there's always something interesting around the corner art-wise too, best get lost exploring! x

  24. I hate it when an outfit is better in my mind than in reality, but I think this one is almost there - maybe add a blazer?
