Studio Mekel Opening

The lovely (and oh so talented) Mekel Illustration opened a brand new studio at the Bayview Centre in Claremont last week and I was there to help celebrate!
 
The amount of support for Kelly was extremely evident on the night, with over 180 people coming down to witness the beginning of this new era. 
Guests sipped on delicious cocktails by Cocktail Gastronomy and snacked on tasty treats (the chocolate brownies...OMG!) courtesy of Cookie Dough Biscuits while browsing (and purchasing!) Kelly's latest art works. 

I have been a fan of Kelly's work for a while now, (I even did a little interview with her following the opening of her last exhibition wanderlust - check it out here if you missed it) her unique style of illustration with stunning pops of watercolour really appeals to me.. and well, who doesn't love pretty pictures of fashionable girls!

Can you believe it is Friday already?! Not that I'm complaining or anything.. Fridays are the best! The anticipation of the weekend to come is enough to put anyone in a good mood.

This outfit was from a couple of weekends ago, taken on the way to my local pub (the perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon, don't you agree?) 
Being a Sunday comfort was key, because let's face it Sundays are made for relaxing, so out came my Cameo pants (actually come to think of it last time I wore them it was a Sunday too!) I added some heels to give the illusion of effort (and well, because I am ridiculously short!) and my Sunday style was complete.  

What do you think? What's your ultimate Sunday style outfit?

The Edit: Top 10 Festival Must Haves

The ultimate festival guide is here!! 

With Splendour in The Grass on this weekend and the Northern Hemisphere smack bang in the middle of their Summer festival season, I thought I would put together a list of my top 10 music festival essentials.

Even though none of these apply to me, (I am stuck on the west coast of Australia!) I actually had a lot of fun compiling this list and it made me even more excited for the upcoming Summer festivals.. you know in a few months time. (Hurry up Summer!)

So here it is. My top 10 festival must haves:

1. The denim short - pretty much a festival staple! Comfy, casual and easy to sit down in!
2. A comfy pair of shoes - You will be on grass and you will be dancing.. all day. Need I say more.
3. A jacket - Even though the sun may be shining during the day (if you are lucky), the temperature will definitely be cooler in the evening.. and the evening sets are always the best so you don't want to be shivering in a corner somewhere, too cold to enjoy them!

Shop Shorts, Jackets and Shoes Here: 




4. Sunglasses - Protect your eyes from the sun and look like a rock star while doing it!!
5. Hat - Yep, another sun protection/style essential item. (I love a good double duty item!) 
6. Day bag - Make sure it is big enough for all your essentials but still easy to carry. A cross body satchel or back pack is ideal.
7. Arm Candy - Complete the festival look with loads of bling.

Shop Sunnies, Bags and Hats Here: 




8. Sunscreen - This one is practical and very, very necessary. Even if it looks like it will be cloudy/rain, sunscreen is still a definite must.
9. Foundation- A light easy to wear foundation such as a tinted moisturiser is preferable.
10. Lip Balm - There is nothing worse than dry, cracked lips, especially after a whole day of screaming singing along to your favourite tunes!

So there you have it. Hopefully I have helped you all get festival ready! 
Do you agree with my list? Let me know what your ultimate festival essential is!!

Monday : 1, Emily : 0.
What a great start to the week... So far today my computer has crashed four five times. I'm not sure if it is just feeling the Monday vibe (like most of us) or if this is going to be it's new, permanent state of being! Whatever it is, it's certainly made me realise just how much I rely on my computer on a day to day basis. I probably spend more time on my computer than I do doing anything else which is a little bit of a scary thought! 
In order to get this post up, I have had to resort to handwriting it out and hoping my computer will stay on long enough for me to quickly type it in when it's done.*
Oh and did I mention my husband just rang to say I left my car keys in his car.. better make that 2-nil, Monday!
 
Anyway moving on, without pointing out the fact that I am wearing another midi skirt, (did anybody notice?!) I would just like to say that this sequin skirt was an absolute steal from Dotti (and is now even more of a bargain at just $9.95!) It's a really great fit and it is covered in sequins, what more could you possibly want from a skirt?! 

I hope everyone's Monday is going a little better than mine!


*it did!

Another day another midi skirt... Obsessed much?!

I may have accidentally purchased this skirt in another colour. Oopsy.
In my defense though, the pink version was on sale and like I said before, I had been searching for the perfect full midi skirt for a while! If you are on to a good thing...

I generally wear a midi skirt with a cropped, fitted top but this time I styled it a little bit differently. (You know, to make it seem like a different skirt!)
 I kind of like the oversized, slouchy feel of this outfit. Although it is easy to look swamped when wearing baggy items together, I feel like by adding heels and slightly tucking the jumper in, it gives it less of a bulky look.

What do you think? How do you wear your midi skirt?
