The Resort collection by Australian (with a hint of New York don't you think?) brand Bassike has captured my heart entirely. It's perfect minimalism and structured silhouettes echo that of Celine and Jil Sander and just make me want to open several credit cards and purchase the lot!

We've seen a emergence of Australian brands fronting many new trends and moving to the forefront of existing ones a la One Teaspoon and their cult line of denim shorts (still after a pair). Hopefully there's a lot more to come, and if Bassike's new Resort collection is anything to go by then I'm very, very excited!

Blazer: ASOS
T-Shirt: Cos (similar)
Culottes: ASOS
Sandals: Topshop
Sunglasses: Rayban

For me, 'stripes' is a trend I most certainly couldn't stay away from, despite typically being known for simple looks. It adds definition to any outfit you chose to wear them with and can completely transform (or what I've tried to do here, at least) even a simple shorts and t-shirt look into something worth blogging about (IMHO).
You might remember me posting this little darling of a blazer on my blog here a short time ago as something I was lusting after - well I managed to pick it up in the ASOS sale! Now that is patience paying off (literally) right there!

What do you think of this outfit? I've been playing around with different styles of photography lately so still in the teething stages of finding what works for my blog.

Oh, and I know I kind of have bitch face going on here but it was seriously hot taking these photos! SOZ!

Pixie  Market, a New York based brand, I'm increasingly seeing amongst the blogosphere - I first came across it seeing Danielle Berstein from WeWoreWhat in a really cute prairie style crop top. There are so many nice things on their site I am trying REALLY HARD to resist! I definitely think this is a hot shop to watch in the coming months.

What do you think?
