Man Child

denim-overalls-cotton-on-style-smorgasbord-9

Fundamentally, there’s nothing more man child than a grown adult in a pair of overalls.

Conclusively, they are so comfortable and hide the stomach with just a silver of skin so you can put it over all your cropped tees. Transition it for the colder months with a chunky sweater and make it exam time appropriate with a collegiate jersey lazily thrown on top.

Basically, they’re my new go to denim and these patched ones from Cotton On’s 91 denim range are exactly what I was looking for at $10! Same price as a pressed juice people. Loose, bronzed, brushed buttons and pockets for days.

Overall, go get yourself a pair of overalls.

Thanks for putting up with all my synonyms and I hope you have a lovely easter long weekend (if you’re lucky enough to get one!).

I was shooting for a Southern Curls & Pearls  inspired colour scheme and I thought it turned out alright. Salmon and coral may be from the same section of the colour wheel but they go together beautifully when broken up with some white and tan. I can’t believe my winter break is over already! It was definitely a fun break and I’ll be sure to create a jam packed July wrap up before August trickles in.

NIGHT

prom6

Now do we have to dress up for the prom?/ Dude I dont think we have the choice/ Yeah it’s the night of all nights/ Gotta look just right {High School Musical 3 ‘A Night to Remember’}

Introducing the formal photos … yeah, high school made me do it. On Monday night I had my year 12 formal which in American terms is equivalent to senior prom. Having been on the formal committee, this night had been a year in the making and it was nice to finally see the venue, decorations, music and food in action. As you can see, the venue was super pretty and I wore a cream-ish strapless dress with a beaded-slash-sequinned bodice, ornate earrings, an Alexander Mcqueen inspired quilted clutch and taupe heels. The food read like pesto pasta for the entree, chicken escallops for main and ‘creme brûlée’ for dessert.  Highlights of the night included the Photo Booth which had a never ending line and the playlist which was pretty sweet 🙂 I know prom has basically become a rite of passage so if anyone feels let sharing, tell me your prom stories!
