Spring Trends 2014

1.9.14

StolenInspiration.com
Welcoming in Spring whole heartedly (I mean, seriously, who even likes Winter anyway?) with some trends to embrace as the temperature rises. I'm a big fan of the effortless outfit because I'm lazy like that, so anything easy to throw on last minute is a winner in my book, and all of these styles are just that. Bellbottom pants, Ray-ban round sunglasses, white and plaid pleated skirts and chunky layered bohemian necklaces are just some of the trends that have been appearing all over my instagram/pinterest/tumblr feeds lately that have caught my eye. I'm not really big on following trends, but it doesn't take me long to start liking something when you're constantly exposed to it, so this might be why the plaid skirt has landed on my radar long after the 2013 'punk' themed Met Gala. Either way, here are some pieces that will look great in your wardrobe.

More photos and links to shop after the jump!

Lennon

28.8.14

StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com Let me introduce you to my new eyes because I don't see these coming off my face anytime soon. They're the perfect vintage-esk slash Lennon circle sunglasses that match a plain t-shirt and choker like no other. I've been after the bigger size of these (after I accidentally got the smaller ones that didn't suit me AT ALL - order 50mm people!) but they aren't sold anywhere in the gold frame/green lens originals. I even sent my parents on a mission to source me a pair while they holidayed in Australia but with no luck. Finally, I stumbled upon SmartBuyGlasses which stock pretty much the whole collection of Ray-Bans and in several different colours. Such a timeless pair of sunglasses though, don't you think?

Wearing: Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Glassons top and Choker (which I'm selling soon here)

Rose Quartz

StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com I've come to the conclusion that if you want to make your legs look a million miles long, patent leather heeled boots and shiny pants are your best bet. I've been meaning to show off these pants for months now but I actually ripped them the first night I wore them out (think water + claustrophobia) only to put them in my 'need to sort out' draw and forgot them completely. Luckily, I stumbled upon them when sorting through all the junk I need to sell and here they are, along with my favourite Country Road sweater I grabbed while I was in Wellington. I'm on holiday once again and now that I have time to kill I feel ridiculously lazy after having the most productive week of my life. I'm actually regretting the fact that I'm not at NZFW right now... Guess I'll be reading blogs for the rest of the week catching up on it all. At least I'm saving money, right?

Wearing: Country Road Sweater, Lookbook Loves Pants, Zara Boots and Ebay Necklace.

Seabreeze

StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com StolenInspiration.com I stumbled upon a couple of these images that were floating around Tumblr and I had to find out the source. The perfect way to not only remind me how far away Summer is, but that I should probably start thinking about getting ready for it - helloooo gym! Gorgeous though, this is the latest campaign for Zulu & Zephyr an Australian based brand and I've already got a list of swimwear I need once it starts getting warmer. Ahhh can't wait for this week to end and finally have some part of my life back. If you haven't started Uni yet then here's my one piece of advice that will make your life 100 times easier if you go: keep up with your work. No matter how many times I tell myself I will keep on top of it, old habits are hard to kick. Fingers crossed it actually is worth it all the hours and late nights, I mean, no ones future is certain right? Okay, back to it for me.

Vintage Vibe

Dressing in clothes that you wouldn't consider 'your style' is the quickest way to change your state of mind. Bohemian is my latest obsession, as I've mentioned a couple of times before, so it was only a matter of time before I tried to pull it off myself. Although I wouldn't necessarily pick myself to wear something like this, it's a nice change to try something new, even if it is just style. I even edited these photos to match the vibes; love it. Besides taking a study break to try on pretty clothes, I have had been pretty busy this past week so I couldn't miss doing a highs and lows.

Horizon Dreaming

15.8.14

StolenInspiration.com It's officially the period of Winter in which everyone becomes stuck in a rutt, living like a hermit and playing catch up on work that should have been done weeks ago. There's one place that no matter what mood I'm in, it's the place I want to be to unwind and reevaluate what needs to be done to move forward and get from A to B - that's home. There's not much here, especially in Winter, but it's the one place where enjoying your own company doesn't feel like I'm being a complete hermit, but rather enjoying a break from life. Sometimes it's so easy to get in a headspace where there's so much to do that you just do nothing at all, only making things worse, so getting out and away from all distractions is my best bet for surviving the next week. All I need now is the motivation to actually put plans into action.. Hope you enjoy my Spring lusting mood board.
