Blunt Umbrella + Karen Walker

If only this dress was constructed in the same way as this Blunt Umbrella, then I wouldn’t be flashing my bits to all the kangaroos out here.

Blunt Umbrellas x Karen Walker.

I know it looks sunny in these photos and I’m holding an umbrella for no real practical reason, but I can assure you it was anything but. Soon after these photos were taken, the rain started drizzling and the wind picked up. Now we have severe weather warnings. No idea where summer went to… Luckily for me, this Blunt umbrella really lives up to it’s claims. The wind did not blow this one inside out and there were pretty strong winds this day. The print on this Blunt Umbrella + Karen Walker is so pretty too. These photos don’t really show it vividly because of the sun reflecting on it, but it’s a navy kind of colour with a bird print which incidentally kind of matched my dress.

Unluckily though, my dress was not made with the same thought in mind. Winds blew and parts were almost revealed. If it wasn’t for the sheer slip inside, I wouldn’t have worn it out on such a windy day. Despite this, it’s quickly become my favourite dress with its cold shoulder details, oriental crane print and flouncy ruffles. I’ve been pretty damn impressed with Zaful lately.

Another new favourite? This Sonja bag by Minskat Copenhagen. You’ve probably notice that the Mira is my go-to bag and rarely ever leaves my side but this one is smaller which means I can fit a little less stuff in there (read: essentials only), meaning I’m not having my arm pulled off via my shoulder. It sounds crazy, but the bag is really teaching me how to be more thoughtful. Mostly about what snacks I can afford to fit inside, but hey, it’s a start.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and if you don’t see me again between now and Sunday, have an awesome new year! I’m truly so grateful of all of the visitors and readers of this blog and hope you’ll put up with my irrelevant rambles and intermittent (inconsistent!) posting in the new year. Wishing you all the best for 2018.

  • I love this dress on you. Haha, I love the first line – personally I couldn’t tell it was short enough to flash kangaroos. It looks perfect on you and love the umbrella too! I hope you had a great holiday and that 2018 is your best yet!


  • It’s definitely way too hot in Adelaide for those boots but I definitely want them! Love how you put this whole look together!

  • I love these photos! And you’re right, the print on that brolly is too cute.

    That’s a gorgeous umbrella, so much nicer than the plain ones everyone else has, so it’s great if you want to stand out a little bit more. I adore the whole look though, especially the boots! I recently got some black long boots quite similar, and I wear similar outfits so you obviously have great style lmao.

  • I actually LIVE for looks like this; gives me such modern 60s vibes and with the belt, ah it’s so nice. Perfect outfit for this time of the year, love love love!

  • Those two pieces do match like avo on toast babe! Love the pretty print of your rogue dress and the bag rounds it all up together. Hope you had an amazing Xmas and NYE and that 2018 brings you only good things! As always, loving your ramblings and sending you lots of love from England

    It’s such an inconvenience when the wind ruins a perfectly worn dress. Anyway, you still look gorgeous in that dress. At first look I thought your dress and umbrella matched. You just look so awesome. Happy New Year btw and always stay safe! 🙂


  • Although the wind may cause some, ahem, exposing moments… it certainly looks good in photos! These shots are gorgeous and I adore the compact size of your new black handbag. Hope 2018 is a brilliant year for you!

  • Oh sucks that it was a windy day when you choose to wear this dress,though I have ti say it looks gorgeous on you! And an umbrella that doesn’t turn inside out during windy weather, now that sounds like God sent 🙂
    Happy holidays!

  • That is such a cute dress and your umbrella does go with it nicely! We are into the summer storm season here, so insane hot and humid days before the storms roll in, and sometimes offer a break in the heat. Usually it’s just more heat once they blow through though, haha!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great week! I’m enjoying that quiet lazy period between Christmas and New Years and relaxing a bit. Have a wonderful 2018.
