Ever since Kenzo, I’ve had a thing for winter hats, nothing says “effortless chic” like a floppy, felt hat. But at school, it just didn’t seem practical as it would not fit in my tiny locker when I had to take it off. When I saw this hat at Tempt for the price of well… peanuts I just had to have it.

I’ve finally figuratively gotten back on the horse, and started sewing again. While I still love some serious colour blocking, I’m also feeling more into prints, more specifically cotton sateen prints. Haven’t had enough time to shoot all the skirts I’ve made over the past couple of days but here’s a preview of things to comeThese days finding the right balance between what’s appropriate for work and what I enjoy wearing is getting a lot easier. Thanks to a love blazers and heels from a young age!

Please let me first apologise for the quality of these photos. These days I’d be lucky to get any natural light after returning home from work, taking outfit photos on self timer just seemed like far too much effort(I actually put out a call for someone with ANY photography prowess to come and take my blog photos everyday on twitter, alas no takers). Feeling the guilt of not blogging for over a month, I begged mum to take my outfit photo, forgetting mother’s photography skills are-and limited to-; taking pictures of food she cooks, taking pictures of my food and taking pictures of paddocks while on the train all of which are done on her blackberry. I am very grateful to her however that I have anything to show at all after screwing up the setting on my DSLR trying to capture the insanely beautiful, bright moon (is there a magic reset button on my Nikon D3000 that I can jab a pin into?) Anyway, I am loving purple lately.Cashmere jumper: Designed by me, knitted in homeland//scarf: zaraBi-colour chiffon skirt: My own design//Taffetta jacket: Huckabees//Patent mary-janes: LFDM//Rings: gifts and eBay//Bag: LFDM//Scarf: Gifted

Month long hiatus, sorry! I could write for days and days about what I’ve been doing, or not doing in the last month but in short, you’re looking at Angela version 2.0, the Sabbatical Version. Yes, the girl who had her life planned to the minute is taking some time off- to re-plan and re-build the tracks this choo choo train’s been running on(while listening to lots of Fleet Foxes and BonIver). So who knows where this year’s going to take me?Dress: My Own Design Studded belt: ASOS Boucle jacket: China Pumps: Louboutins Necklace: My Own Design Bangles, rings and watch: eBay Leaf bracelet: Gift Bag: LFDM
