It's always different living in the southern hemisphere. When spring and summer trends begin to pop out all over the internet from the other side of the world, the grey skies and cold temperature starts to creep in here. As much as i love winter coats, layerings and autumn colours, spring and summer fashion has always been my favourite because of their girlyness, vibrancy and excitement. So whenever there's chance to go out of the house and strut the streets in my favourite outfit style, then i'll take it. (i don't literally strut lol)
This whole outfit was inspired by this "Women's Weekly's Picnics" book that i got for only $5 at this super-cheap/sale-all-year-long bookstore in Chadstone. Since high school, I've always been SO obsessed with having picnics with proper picnic baskets, eatting cupcakes, lying on the grass while chatting or reading a magazine... so it was like love-at-first sight when i saw this book. And when i put together this look, THIS very book, with super pretty pictures inside, was constantly on my mind, inspiring my every move and pieces i chose. I imagine my picnic to be very feminine; so full of lace, pastels, floral patterns and vintage things and that's how i got this look together.

I'm loving removable collars at the moment. It replaces the need to wear necklaces and changes a simple plain top into something new. And whenever you get bored of it, you can just take it off and either change into another collar or simply wear the top plainly.
Although the trend socks and heels are slightly disappearing away, i still think it looks super cute.

PS: more outfit posts soon! <3
