Orange Cold Shoulders

Ok you guys, it’s official. I’m obsessed with cold shoulder tops. They’re so fun, flirty & perfect for summer. Plus for a gal who’s quite well endowed in the chest area, it’s a way to almost get on the off the shoulder trend without having to wear a strapless bra. I found this top in Topshop a little while ago (it comes in black & white too!) & I honestly couldn’t pass up this gorgeous bright orange colour. The fluttery sleeves are so gorgeous & the top is so comfortable in general – I didn’t want to take it off! I definitely think you could get away with this at the office as well – pair it was a pencil skirt & you’re good as gold!

P.S. If you live in Sydney, hotfoot it down to McDougall Street in Kirribilli which is where I took these photographs. It’s lined with jacarandas & they’re literally all in bloom right this very second! They won’t last long so get in while the going’s good (or purple as the case may be!).

WHY YOU NEED A WOVEN CLUTCH

You guys, this clutch isĀ everything. It’s so versatile & chic & I constantly get compliments on it. But I have to say, it’s not your usual clutch. I bought it a couple years ago from Amazon so it was probably one or two seasons old for Kate Spade but I didn’t mind. I wanted a clutch that would go with everything, that could be dressed up & down for day & night. This clutch totally fits the bill. It’s not something that girls would usually have on their must-have list but I’m telling you now that it needs to be on there. The woven rattan makes it super chic for daytime whilst the gorgeous gold & bamboo closure can make a night time outfit look like something a French girl would wear. I’ve rounded up a whole heap of woven clutches at tons of different price points below just for you!
