It has become a tradition of sorts for Anastasia and I to do a lookbook each season, and recently we shot our Summer one! It has been so hot here in Melbourne recently, I've been going to the beach so much and I managed to get burnt nearly every time... But I really do love this weather.
This time around, we've styled three outfits each instead of two, so that's different. But I think the possibly most exciting change is that this time the photos were taken by Shelby, a good friend of ours who knows way more about photography than either Anastasia or I. I love love love how the photos turned out, she did such an amazing job! Don't forget to have a look at her blog here, it's full of some pretty amazing photography.
Past lookbooks: Spring 2015 | Winter 2015
top - Ally | skirt - Valleygirl | clutch - Colette | sunglasses - Alex Perry | necklace - Colette | bangle + rings - Lovisa
I love the way that all the gold tones in this outfit tie everything together, plus I think they compliment the skirt. This clutch is actually Anastasia's, but I borrowed it because the gold detailing matched the rest just too nicely!
dress - Kmart | bracelet + rings - Lovisa
An outfit like this is such a go-to in the Summer for me. It can be hard sometimes to find dresses that are really casual, but this dress does that perfectly! I actually have this same dress, and I've worn it everywhere: to the city, to the beach, lounging around the house. It's just really comfortable, and the daisy pattern is both pretty and simple.
top - Disneyland | shorts - Supre | necklace - Forever 21 | sunglasses - Alex Perry
Yet another go-to outfit for me in the Summer, high waisted shorts with a top. I've had this top longer than I've been alive (I'm only half exaggerating), but to be fair, it is really comfortable. And I really like the vintage Minnie and Mickey. The sunglasses weren't really planned for this outfit, but I do wear these all the time so I probably have worn them with a similar outfit at some point. I kind of just stick on my head, meaning to wear them as actual sunglasses at some point, and then I always forget they're there and they live on top of my head all day. Ya feel me?
top - Ally | leggings - Kmart
I would wear an outfit like this if I was just hanging around the house and I wanted to be super comfortable. Or maybe for exercise? Yes, we know this isn't a proper sports top but if you aren't running a marathon and you just want an easy and comfy outfit, this is the next best thing.
dress - Ozmosis | shoes - Zhu | bracelet - Lovisa
Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.
Okay okay, I know it's not spring but I saw an opportunity and I took it.
This would be perfect for a slightly more formal occasion. It's pretty much impossible to see in both of these photos because of the way I was standing, but the dress has little cutouts in the side which are too cool, I'm obsessed. Petition to be allowed to wear this dress to school. Also a shoutout to my gorgeous friend Bree who gave me this dress, I love it!
top - Ally | skirt - Kmart | kimono - Kmart | bracelet + rings - Lovisa
This has to be one of my favourite outfits! (I'm totally going to borrow this, Anastasia.) I honestly wasn't sure at first how the cream kimono would work with all the black, but I think it looks fantastic so props to Anastasia for this genius outfit planning.
