Hey loves, how are ya? Fall is finally here, a new season with new exciting trends to follow! I love the change in color palettes and pieces that switch up from summer’s hot and breezy to autumn’s glam and comfy! I’ve seen so much inspiration for what to wear this season and switch it up to cater my personal style! I’m gonna share with you my top 5 things that are trending this fall!

VELVET

Velvet is definitely a material I’m absolutely in love with, the feel of it, the look and I think it has an incredible amount of character, even when paired with the simplest of things! For this season designers such as Ralph Lauren and Bottega Veneta showed their fresh touch on the velvet trend which looks absolutely fabulous!

BOOTS

Boots from Louis Vuitton

Boots are my must have for this season! They’re incredibly chic and come in different colors , materials and forms (whether they are thigh – high or cute little ankle boots)

Public Desire has amazing boots for the fall and take on the same trend but at a much more affordable price!

ATHLEISURE WEAR

This new trend is not only super chic but also incredibly comfortable! Who knew the two could go with each other so well? Pull off your inner Gigi and match some of your fave adidas tracksuit pants and any accessories to put your personal touch.

SLIP DRESSES

There’s been quite a little bit of controversy over this trend because I guess there’s a fine line between looking chic and looking like you’re going to bed. But I think if accessorized well and paired with the right pieces , you’d look like you just came off the runway! Chiara Ferragni, Kenza Zouiten pull this look off perfectly for fall when worn over a simple white tee!

I turned 20 yesterday!

Outfit details: Leather jacket – Zara / Dress- Motel Rocks / Blouse and Pants – Zara / Shoes – Gift but similar HERE

Hey loves! I celebrated my birthday yesterday and I turned twenty, I don’t know how many of you know this but I was so excited to leave teenagehood behind me, since I mentally sometimes don’t feel like I’m as young as I am, I feel like I’m some sort of a grandma, I love my cozy nights in on the weekend, baths ( like Blanche from a streetcar named desire) and watching movies or doing something cozy ♥ . I didn’t have time to edit any photo’s so sorry about that! It was such a relaxing birthday which is such a change, for the past 3 years all of my birthdays have been absolute mayhem, and serious partying, I figured I’d do something a little more chill but still fun this year. Brenda and I headed down to Hilary’s beach and had churros, enjoyed the sun and the beautiful view of the water! The weather was so amazing in Perth , it was so unreal because winter just ended and the sun had been hiding for a little while. When I got home, I had a quick change and had to head out the door to meet Margarita and head to Raffles Hotel where we had an amazinggggggggg dinner and yummy cocktails! Thank you to everyone who made my birthday amazing! I’ve put down some pictures of my best messages. I’m so thankful and blessed to have such amazing people in my life who make me feel so incredibly appreciated. Here’s to a new year, and new adventures!

Kisses,

Petronella

Hey loves! Been a while since I put up an outfit post (been a while since I’ve actually posted lol) and as soon as I got my pictures to this shoot, I just had to share with you guys! How are you? I was sick at the start of the week and have been really off for some reason, I’ve just been emotionally and physically exhausted and I almost just feel like all my motivation went out the window this week , it’s the weekend now so hopefully I can get back into my mojo and keep it movin’!  But in all honesty, I am so in love with these photos,hank you to Atanga from Uncoura photography for the beautiful shots! I love shooting in the city , I think I just love busy cities and so sometimes shooting in the city is a kind of fun , adrenaline rush for me , and I love the stores there too (Yes I’m talking about Prada haha)! I Absolutely adore this look and I think the leather jacket just does it for me, it’s what pulls the whole outfit together! Not to forget the beautiful bag my mom got for me in Paris, the beautiful mustard colour that stands out  which is fantastic when paired with such a simple pieces!

What do you guys think of my look?

Kisses,

Petronella

My beautiful friend, Jordyn!

Hey loves, how are ya? So for today’s post I had something so different planned but when I saw one of my closest friends Jordyn have these beautiful photo’s go up this morning, I knew I just had to share! I’ve known Jordyn since I was in the 9th grade, we have a lot of embarrassing videos lip synching to Aly & AJ ahaha , but she’s always been so incredibly photogenic and she’s always had a passion for modelling! Since day one, I always knew that Jordyn was absolutely amazing at modelling, I mean she’s great at everything she does but modelling is like her cup of tea ( with 5 teaspoons of sugar, right jord ;)? )Kevin Alexander  is the amazing photographer behind these remarkable photos.I honestly think this is so minimal and chic , if I could I would call up Fransisco Costa right now and tell him to basically run these photo’s for Calvin Klein. I’m so excited to see where modelling is going to take you Jordyn, love from your kinda cool friend, Pet!  Make sure to follow my friend Jordyn on instagram – here to see more photos as well as Kevin’s which you can find here   . Also you can find the very comfy, very chic underwear set by Calvin Klein here and here both from ASOS!

What do you guys think about these amazing photos?

Kisses,

Petronella

Living in Levi’s ♥ 

// Jeans- Levi’s / White tee – H&M  / Bracelet – Lovisa // 

Hey loves! How are ya? My trip to Nairobi is sadly coming to an end and over the weekend I head back to Australia! I really wanted to take cozy and comfy photos with my Levi jeans and basically show you guys how I live in Levi’s!  I paired the jeans with a comfy white tee from H&M and I’m so happy with the aesthetic of the photos! I know it’s so different from what I usually do, but every once in a while I love doing something different! I am so in love with my jeans because they are so comfortable and they fit amazingly. I know a lot of people have issues with jeans not perfectly  fitting their bodies, but these jeans seem to perfectly fit my body, as if they were made just for me.

How do you live in your Levi’s?

Let me know in the comments!

Kisses,

Petronella
