Thrifted cardigan, Kenji top, DIY jeans, Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Misbehaved

Wow, long time no outfit post! Despite having three younger siblings none of them are willing to be my minions, so unfortunately taking outfit pictures is a lot more finicky than it could be. This isn't helped by the fact that I'm a perfectionist, especially when it comes to messing around with tripods and self-timer settings... Anyway, here's a simple outfit I wore to the shops last week, although I switched out the heels for my fisherman sandals that I've practically been living in. My mum absolutely despises these jeans and despite looking like a homeless person, I'd probably wear them all the time if it were socially acceptable! It's a shame that jeans with gaping holes are still way too warm for Australia's summer, so I'm savouring the comfort of these before I really start to feel the summer heat.

In other news, I'm wearing the Sally Hansen nail strips I mentioned in my Priceline haul and am completely obsessed with them! Recently I've been on a  self-imposed nail polish ban since my nail beds are in such bad condition, but I couldn't resist trying out this design. I'm not usually one for glittery nail polish, but these are the perfect option without having to deal with the hassle of removing it. Anyway, I hope you have a great end to the week and see you back here soon!

  10. Your outfit looks perfect! I know what you mean by being a perfectionist behind the camera :P Do you own a tripod and a remote? It could become quite helpful if you want outfit photos taken haha. And you nails look amazing. I really want to paint mine but I can't be bothered #lazylyf.

    1. Thanks Anita! I do use a tripod but I'm still looking into a good remote, it'd definitely make things a lot easier than the whole self-timer thing. I'm pretty lazy too so these nail strips are a godsend, haha! :)
