OUTFIT POST: Linear

A darker colour palette and shapeless dressing makes up my daily uniform as Sydney gets increasingly moody and rainy. It's funny how stormy weather can affect our mood and the way we dress; getting out of bed becomes much harder and so are wearing tight jeans. That unpleasant feeling of wet denim stuck to your thighs made me ditch the skinny cut in favour of the boyfriend. Sometimes masculine shapes are so much more comfortable and effortless.

There are two things at the top of my bucket list: shoot in a maze and (learn how to) play giant chess - none of which will be fulfilled anytime soon. So I will live vicariously through Finders Keepers's latest lookbook, Checkmate. Their vision of spring dressing consist of a modern twist on the floral and houndstooth print. The former being stripped off its cutesy stereotype and designed with an edgy ombre into stark white where the latter is updated with a pop of colour.

Yes, you're free to wear houndstooth stylishly come the warmer weather. It's no longer just reserved for the David Jones logo.

With a couple of weeks left of Sydney's winter, today we're celebrating sunshine and vitality. Heaps of natural lighting, what is left of my summer 2013 tan and the gold necklaces handpicked by yours truly captured my longing for warmer weather. In contrast to the last 'Accessories Edit' post which focused on winter knits with boho jewellery, I'm braving the cold and styling these three neckpieces with swimwear. Perhaps I chose the easy way out when face to face with the dilemma of what to wear; in this case, not much at all. I mean we'll let the jewellery details speak for themselves.

Throughout my high school years the extent of my accessorising consisted of a lonely silver pendant - the only appropriate option considering five days a week in school uniform. But here I'm reigniting my love for layering necklaces courtesy of The Dark Horse who kindly lent me some of Nicole Richie's creations for House of Harlow. I'm featuring one of her most iconic and best selling pieces - Sunburst - and tied the look together with the motif of triangles and geometric shapes.

I'll let you in on a little secret - I was wearing pajama pants and pink fluffy slippers while shooting this. My neighbours must think I'm the weirdest person.
