Hi, hello and welcome!
As you may have noticed, the weather has turned on us lately and we are definitely heading in to turtleneck and jean weather. It just happened to be the day I decided to shoot this post it was the sunniest day we have had in weeks, do not be fooled though! Autumn is here in full swing and Winter is not far around the corner.. it may be a burden for some, an exciting time for others. For me? I'm content with a good balance of either, I do love myself a good Winter coat and jeans though.
The key to Autumn & Winter styling is layering your life away, basically. Whilst also having the perfect black pair of boots to throw on with literally everything. I am also loving the knit dresses for Winter, just like Summer dresses they are too easy to just throw with some boots and a coat and run out the door, especially for the days you really can't be bothered layering 3 different thing AND trying to make it look good. Last but not least, find yourself a good pair of jeans for the season. Jeans are a daunting topic for most people, I've heard it all.. Too short, too long, too tight, too skinny, too straight, too high waisted, too low. Before I started to work with jeans, I wasn't interested in them. I found them a little bit boring and just not my thing but little did I know, its about finding your perfect jean and believe me, its out there waiting for you. You will probably try on about 100 before you find one you love and it may cost a little bit more than expected but I promise you, the perfect jean is the perfect staple for the colder weather!
During these colder months I'm heading to Melbourne for Easter and Adelaide in May! If any of you have any suggestions of any must do's, please send me a message!
In this post I am wearing:

ITS A NEW YEAR
Hi, hello and welcome!
Absolutely crazy but to whoever is still reading my blog in 2017, THANK YOU! I feel this year is going to be a big one. Since the year started its been nothing but good vibes and I also got a new pink backdrop for my blog! I hope you all love the pop of colour.
2016 was a killer, I attended some pretty cool events, met some even cooler people, started studying what I love, moved in with my boyfriend in Sydney after long distance that went way too slow, I got to work with some incredible brands and got to spend a lot of time with people I love.
I am so excited to spend 2017 with all of you, sharing the fun and the good vibes, so to start the year with a bang, heres my first blog post of the year, one of many to come.
In this post my outfits are both from Once It! Once It is my absolute favourite for bargains on some of my favourite brands, especially some of my favourite New Zealand designers (there is nothing like a taste of home in your wardrobe!).
I hope you love this blog post and it gets you inspired for 2017.
P.S. I would absolutely love to work with more like-minded creative people this year in Sydney so if you have any ideas email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT
If you are anything like myself and are still in the struggle of finding the perfect Christmas gift, I have the solution for you. Personally, I love giving gifts and want to make sure its the right gift for the right person, there is nothing like seeing the people you love light up in excitement because you got them exactly what they wanted. I also love getting people gifts they wouldn't usually treat themselves with, small things that you can use around the house or keep in your room forever, I guess you could say small keepsakes that aren't going to go out of fashion or style. I've teamed up with Once It to give you some Christmas gift ideas, they have made it even easier for you by having a gift tab on their website!
FOR THE TEA LOVERS...
FOR THE COOLER YOUNGER SIBLING OR THE FASHIONISTA
FOR YOUR MUM/NANA/GRANDMA/AUNTY WHO DESERVES TO RELAX.
FOR THE CANDLE LOVERS
FOR THE FINE JEWELLERY LOVER
No matter who you are shopping for, we are a week and 3 days out from Christmas so get shopping if you haven't yet. Head to Once It to see more perfect gift for your loved ones! If you are in Auckland, they also have a Christmas pop up this weekend only at 33 George Street, Newmarket to cater for all your last minute shopping needs! http://www.onceit.com.au
Happy Christmas lovers!

THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY WEEKEND
Hi, hello and welcome!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I happened to find way too many coloured walls to snap infront of! (Thank you, Paddington)
In this blog post I am wearing two different outfits. The first outfit includes shoes from Toyshop, skirt by Staple The Label from David Jones, top from Missguided and another top over it from Supre! I have become obsessed with layering lately, it adds a little bit extra to every outfit and you can still wear your favourite camis in the midst of Winter!
The second outfit includes my brand new skirt from American Apparel, top from Nude Lucy and shoes from Rubi Shoes! I have been eyeing up this skirt for about 3 months now, so I finally took the plunge and purchased it, you really cannot go wrong with a white skirt, I have worn it basically all weekend and its so easy to throw everything on with it!
Sneakers are my thing at the moment as well, I've been living in them. They add that little bit extra cool to every outfit, I also feel like they're wildly accepted to be worn mainly everywhere now. I have a lot of sneakers on my wishlist, it seems that every brand came out with a great pair of sneakers at once! I'll start up a sneaker coin jar to get my hands on them all.
Apart from coloured walls, a tennis skirt & sneakers being apart of my weekend, I also listened to good music all weekend. Here is the soundtrack to my weekend:
Brightest Light - Montis Remix // FDVM, Josh Wantie, Montis
Someone That Loves You // HONNE, Izzy Bizu
Papercuts (feat. Vera Blue) // Illy
Dahnce To The Beat // Hot As Sun
Metaphysical - Kilter Remix // Autograf
You can follow the rest of my Spotify playlist here: https://open.spotify.com/user/1239100478/playlist/4c7rDWOSmJw7wfzDC5dVm9
Hope you all have a lovely week ahead,
A TRIP TO THE HUNTER VALLEY
ONCE IT X MY WARDROBE ON A BLOG
Hi, hello and welcome!
Another weekend off work means another blog post. The weekend was absolute bliss, it was spent at the Isabella Blow: A Fashionable Life! exhibition at the Arts and Sciences museum. It was absolutely incredible and I would recommend to everyone to check it out before its too late! This was closely followed by Pokemon Hunting and happy hour at Darling Harbour.
Enough about my weekend, in this blog post I am sporting an outfit that I have never felt more like myself in. The colours, the cuts and the comfort. This sweater and pants are from Once it. Both of them are the brand Salasai, their prints have always had my heart and to find them for a complete bargain on Once It is a dream come true for me.
I can't be the only one who is a sucker for a good designer sale, scooping up my last pennies after all the bills are paid and just wanting a cute outfit for the weekend. The best part is that the designer sales on Once It are constantly changing & there is most likely always something for everyone, I have to avoid it sometimes as the homeware sales get me like no other (I do NOT need another pillow for my bed, there is already 10. Self control is not a thing in this house!)
Hope you all love the photos & don't forget to add me on Snapchat to keep up with my weekly adventures: tashiskwl
Lots of love,
Check out once it here:
Hi, hello and welcome!
I am always on the hunt down for brands that truly feel what I'm all about. Everything down to the print, the colours and the cuts. I am the type of gal who wants to throw a dress on, some statement shoes and leave the house. Except I won't just throw any dress on, it needs to be a statement in itself.. It doesn't sound hard to find, but when you want it to be somewhat causal for a day out shopping or brunch, its easy to leave the house in sequins looking like you are going to a ball.
Not to worry though, Harvest Lane has got me covered. The best thing about this is that, if you fall in love with the shape of the dress. You can wear it in 4 other different prints, its basically a dream. I've always truly believed it something works on you and looks fabulous, buy it in 10 different colours. Its so hard to find a dress/top/any sort of clothing that works for you perfectly.
In the photos above I am wearing the Iceberg Aspen Dress, of course my initial choice was the pink dress.. I couldn't go past it. I am also obsessed with every other print in this style dress. I threw it on twice on the weekend, with some boots and with some sneakers and bam. It was a grocery shopping dress, a shopping dress and a lunch with friends dress.
You can check the other colours & all the different styles out here: http://www.harvestlane.com.au/collections/all
Have a great week!
JERICHO ROAD CLOTHING
ARC & BOW
Hi, hello and welcome!
This weeks blog post features not only my cool new octopus friend BUT a fabulous, fresh New Zealand brand called Arc & Bow!
Arc and Bow provides with basics that can be worn everyday but they are complete with fun prints and cuts that scream feminine and personal style!
In this post I am wearing the Traffic Blouse, there is always a need for some good tees in your wardrobe and with a blouse like this, you can easily jazz up any outfit or plain pair of jeans or pants. It adds a bit of colour and fun.
Here's some other pieces I'm obsessed with from Arc & Bow:
I hope you love this post!
MARKS AND SPENCERS AUSTRALIA
Hi, hello and welcome!
It's been a wee while since I attended the Marks and Spencer's launch but since I didn't snap any photos that would do this event justice, I thought I would do a post on the pieces I purchased on the new Marks and Spencer's Australia site!
As I entered the Marks and Spencer house, I was blown away. It was beyond beautiful, the furniture, the decor, the flow of champagne and yummy food. At this point I was wishing I had brought my camera - my iPhone was not going to capture this in the way I wished it would.
Pictured above is my own celebration of the Marks and Spencers Australia website, with balloons and a smile on my face.
Here is what I am wearing above:
Metallic Effect Pleated Skirt - As I was scrolling through the Marks and Spencers website, I came across this skirt and immediately fell in love. It may be the fact that anything metallic makes me happy, or that the pleats were exactly what I was looking for. The quality of this skirt for the price is beyond what I ever expected. I can't wait to pair it with a turtleneck knit in Winter and some boots.
Limited Edition Ruffle Blouse - Once I had purchased the skirt I knew I had to have the perfect top to go with it. Pink immediately came to my mind. I saw this blouse and knew they would look perfect together - can we talk about the sleeves for one moment?! The ruffle sleeves are perfect, dressing this up and down on a everyday basis is too easy. I feel like during Winter, I'm going to live in this blouse. Again, I am beyond thrilled with the quality for how much it was, so affordable for beautiful quality.
Limited Edition Faux Leather Spectacles Shopper Bag - Lets be honest, I never needed a new bag but if you know me, you would know this bag is right up my alley. I love anything with eyes, anything that looks a little strange, also anything PINK. It's safe to say its going to be my new child and I'm going to take it everywhere. It fits everything that a girl could ever need in it. (I am a excessive packer, in everyday life and travel life). Thank you Marks and Spencers Australia for making my bag dreams come true.
So, as a Marks and Spencer rookie, I am beyond thrilled with my purchases and I can't wait to buy more, especially with free delivery with purchases over $50 and only taking 7-9 business days. YES, PLEASE.
Thank you Marks and Spencer for bringing some quality online shopping to Australia.
If you haven't noticed already... I've got a rad dress.
On Wednesday I attended the Supre denim destination event, as I walked in the door I was greeted with oversized denim jackets, slim jeans that come in all sorts of colours and friendly faces.
The most exciting part of this event (apart from the donuts) was definitely what I have captured above... patches, patches for days. I was beyond thrilled when I was told we get to patch our own piece of denim, I have always wanted to do this but find it hard to source cute patches. Supre had it all. Glitter hearts, letters and gold stars. As everyone lunged quickly for the oversized denim jackets, my heart lunged for this denim dress. Winter was on my mind and I thought of how cute I could make this look with patches. I thought of my trusty denim jacket in my cupboard at home and decided that when the time was right - I can eventually patch that too.
Supre has really stepped its game up with denim this season and I'm excited. Over the years the quality and brand has grown and as a blogger, they are a company who is beyond pleasant to work with so I'm pretty happy to share the denim destination with you all and share my favourite pieces.
Here's some of my favourite picks.
Winter brings out my ultimate ripped jeans. I am a fan. I love the dad jokes that come along with ripped jeans as well. "Did you fall over in your jeans?" "Did you want me to fix your jeans?". Also the looks people give you while you are rocking these over the top ripped jeans, is great. In Winter, these paired with a collared blouse with a knit over the top and some chunky boots.... Yes. Yes. Yes.
This playsuit is perfect for those days you literally just want to throw on something and run out the door but still want to look good. Its casual, cool and speaks "yeah I just ran out the house and still look stylish, how about you?"... Seriously, though.
Am I the only one who finds it super hard to find a oversized, cool denim jacket that doesn't cost my life? The only places I've found that sell these are vintage stores but they're still way out of my price range. Explore Supre on Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/supre_instagram/ ) and see the likes of bloggers Shelby Hamilton and Kate Nutting from Pretty Dresses in the Laundry wearing this jacket - it's beyond cool and if you don't own a denim jacket for Winter, grab it.
This skirt is one of my personal favourites, I wear mine far too often and I am not ashamed to admit so. Everyone needs a white mini skirt in their life... It goes with everything. I feel so strongly about white skirts that I strongly suggest you go get your hands on one, now. Throw it on in Winter with black boots and a cropped knit and bam, you look badass.
So there you have it, a denim freenzy for you to go crazy over. Tell your friends. Tell your mum. Tell your siblings. The cold weather is coming and double denim is going to rock your world.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY!
When I think of Women, I think of strong, independent people who have come so far in history but we still have so far to go.
"International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity." (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/About)
"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights," (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/About)
My blog post today is in celebration of myself and all the women around me who have influenced me, taught me and grown me in to the women I am today. A celebration of all the #girlbosses I have read about and that have inspired me to be my own #girlboss one day.
In this post is a celebration of who I am as a women, a strong, independent, colourful and bright gal. We are all so different and thats what makes us who we are, if that isn't something to celebrate, then I don't know what is!
Here's to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.
THE BOLD, THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CRAZY
Hi, hello & welcome!
The blog post today consists of lots of colour, fun and my beautiful best friend! In light of her twenty first birthday today I think its only fair to make her the star of the show on my blog. When you constantly have people take photos of you for blog posts and Instagram pictures you forget how much you enjoy snapping cute photos of your friends.
My first post for 2016 reflects how I expect 2016 to be - colourful, crazy and full of good times.
I was going to write down all my New Years resolutions down and tell you why I am doing them but then I realised I totally don't have any and I just need to drink more water. (We all do, right?)
My aim for 2016 is to go with the flow, find more hobbies that bring out my creative side & go on more adventures with my favourite people. They aren't must do's but if they happen, I would be pretty happy!
What are your New Years resolutions? If any? Leave a comment if you have one!
Wearing in this post:
Tash: Rubi Shoes sunglasses, Finders Keepers dress!
Myself: Gorman dress, Mimco hat, Rubi Shoes sunnies!
Happy New Year friends, I hope its your best yet.

This weeks blog post I am sportin' a casual Sunday look.
I am wearing a Lulu & Rose dress, Topshop socks and shoes and a Mimco bag.
I hope everyone had a beyond fantastic Christmas! This will be my last blog post for 2015. It's been a beyond crazy year. Moving to a different country, learning new things, a new job, new friends, new experiences, new EVERYTHING.
I am so excited for what 2016 has to bring and all the new oppurtunities it has around the corner! My wardrobe on a blog will be back in the new year with more glitter, more pink & more fun times. I would say my new years resolutions but I believe I gave up on them years ago.. If you have any though, feel free to share them ;-)
I hope everyone has a fantastic new years eve and new years day! Lets make this year the best one yet.
See you in the New Year!
Where does inspiration come from?
For you, maybe your friends, your favourite celebrity or blogger, or maybe when your head is deep in a magazine. Maybe the tree tops or a walk on the beach.
For me? A pair of pink sandals and a printed dress.
Lately, I have been feeling uninspired, hence the lack of blog posts for all of you. There is nothing more I would hate to do than pretend to be inspired when I'm not. I found inspiration on the weekend in a newly found dog park on my street, a swing on some children's swings, a ride on the flying fox, a swim in the ocean, eating $6 pizza and having a picnic on the deck.
There's nothing worse than losing inspiration for something you were once so passionate about but I am determined to work to get it back. Just writing this makes me feel a little bit more inspired. Little comments on my Instagram, a message on my tumblr encouraging me from my lovely followers is what keeps me going. To find the inspiration I was lacking I decided to go back to the start and realise what made me love it in the first place. So I got on photoshop this morning for the first time in a while and truly edited a blog post with cute colours and glitter and true Tash style.
I hope you enjoy this small, honest and heartfelt blog post to let you know why there hasn't been many.
In this post I am wearing a outfit from a brand that inspires me every day, Gorman.
My bag is Oroton.
See you soon.
Hi, hello & welcome!
Today's blog post is just some pretty pink photos because I L O V E D my outfit on Monday! Tishy and myself found this beautiful jacket at the same store as my last post (Tommy's project in Chatswood Interchange, opposite the post shop!) I cannot urge you enough if you can go to this store, go! There's usually only one of each thing and theres so many cute finds, this being the best find yet!
I am also wearing my new Gorman sunglasses, Zimmerman skirt & Public Desire shoes :-)
Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do and I hope you all have a great week & weekend ahead... you deserve it.
