I am super in love with this top! It appeared in my Christmas wishlist, but I ended up buying it for myself in the after Christmas sales! It’s sadly no longer on the site, but check your local City Chic stores!
It is a bit of an akward top to get sunburnt in though! I was running around with Tonka getting him to the vets (he had a UTI, 3 vet visits, including one at 3am after he was peeing blood!) and totally forgot to put sunscreen on! Now I have some interesting sunburn lines! I wore it with pants, which you can see here.
After reading the reviews of this top on the CC site, I sized down to a small and was happy I did so. The medium would have fitted, but probably been slightly too big. The top is also rather neon in real life!
This year I’m trying to embrace my arms. My arms are something I always cover as they are flabby, but it’s just too hot here in summer to do that. I want to be cool and free, so I’m learning to love my upper arms.
I can’t believe it’s December and that Christmas is just around the corner! Where has the year gone!? Just thought i’d share my Christmas wishlist with everyone! It seems I have some expensive taste!
Vintage 7 Speed Ladies Bike from Reid Cycles – $279 | I am loving Melbourne, but seeing as I don’t drive, I’d love to get a bike. I live close to shops, and it’s walkable, but I honestly miss bike riding! I’d love to go on bike rides on the weekend with friends!
Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Fuchsia – $37 | I added this to my ASOS wishlist as soon as it came online. Then after seeing Brittany rocking this shade, I fell even more in love with it! I am LOVING lipstick lately and would love to add this to my collection.
Spacemaster 4 Door Robe from Super Amart – $599 | As I’ve mentioned, my wardrobe looks like this, and then the extra one ended up like this, so now I’m trying to find a solution to trying to find space for my clothes. This would pretty much be a dream come true!
The Neverland Jenny Dress and/or Neverland Jenny Skirt from PUG – $142 / $98 | Peter Pan means SO much to me, I could probably write a whole post about just how much, and as you probably know, fashion means a lot to me to. This dress & skirt = PERFECTION!
Instax Mini 8 Camera from Target – $88 | I’ve been wanting an Instax for aaaages, if you go through my old wishlists, you’ll probably see it many times! It’s something I don’t seem to buy for myself. I love the pink one!
Katja Rainbow Faux Fur Coat from Boohoo – Was $130 – Now $80 | I LOVE this coat, sure, it’s not for everyone, but I’ve always been a bit of an individual! It reminds me of Sully from Monsters Inc & I think it would be great for Melbournes winters!
GotG Groot &/or Dancing Groot Pop Vinyl from Pop Cultcha – $15.99each | I think this is pretty self explanitory. I mean, Groot is just awesome! (If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet, do so!)
The print on this dress KILLS me! It’s so cute! When I watched one of the Black Milk videos and they sneak peaked this pattern, I crossed my fingers they’d be in leggings. I was a bit bummed when it was released in a play dress, as I’d never bought one and didn’t think it would suit me. I decided to buy it, and if it didn’t look okay, I’d send it back.
It’s still here! I actually don’t think it looks too bad on! I thought the fitted nylon would show all my lumps and bumps, and while you can see some slight underwear lines, it’s also pretty flattering! The playdress actually has a high neckline, but I, uh, well, I wear it back to front! It’s NOT supposed to be worn this way, as it’s cut to be longer at the back- shorter at the front, but I have a small butt, so find the extra length on the front helps with the extra material needed to cover my belly. It is still pretty short all round though!
The weather in Melbourne certainly is crazy! I took these photos a week ago, when the weather was nice and hitting low 30ºc. Then December came in, officially summer and it’s currently 16ºc! WHAT!? Meanwhile, back in Sydney it’s been 35ºc+! I am much more a fan of Winter, but I admit to missing those nice sunny days. Anyway, enough about the weather!
Pink holographic sandals! YES PLEASE! These are, of course, another sale score. It seems that lately, the only time I buy something new is if it’s on sale. I’ve become the ultimate bargain hunter!!
My favourite animal on the dress seems to depend on the day. A snake riding a bicycle (how does that even work!?), a kitty on a scooter, a bunnie on a skateboard! It is adorable overload! It may be a little weird, but I kind of want to give them all names! Haha!
( PS - If you have the time, i’d love for you to head over HERE (or even leave a comment) and let me know what you’d like to see more/less of on XLasLife if 2015!! )
