OOTD & Shopping at Scout by Abicus

10 June 2015

When it's cold, usually I'm all for being indoors, rugged up in track pants, bed socks, slippers and a panda bear hoodie. But after multiple days of this impressive feat it can become incredibly boring, and you yearn for fashionable outfits once again. Not to mention that literally all of my snuggly warm indoor clothing is grey. Slippers, socks, track pants and jumper. I'm a walking raincloud. I made up that panda hoodie thing, but hey if you wanna send me one.

It's good to get out of the house every now and then, so I rugged up and walked to the street that is behind my house. The one filled with boutiques and restaurants, just waiting to take my hard earned cash.

Here's what I'm wearing right now:
Dark Grey Coat - Cotton On | All About Eve Singlet - Glue Store (similar) | Faded Blue Jeans - Topshop | Black Belt - Loop Leather Co |

I honestly can't believe I got this coat from Cotton On! And it's so quality too! Super glad I bought it.
I walked down to Scout by Abicus on Darby Street, one of my favourite boutiques, they have so many good brands, and the store and girls working there are soo lovely!

Have a look at this lovely Parisian Pear Candle - White Horse Home
I specifically went down there to try on these beauties, the St Kilda Boots by Soles. I really needed some low and short heeled boots to add to my collection for everyday wear. I tried these babies on and I was so impressed! They look rad and are definitely something that you can dress up or dress down.

Kaching! In the bag, along with that lovely pear smelling candle. I decided to layby two more things so I didn't feel like i'd thrown away all of my money in one day.

I picked up this amazing Nightingale Kimono by Evil Twin the Label, of which no photos do any justice but it is so amazing, that I had to get it. Little ole me, who doesn't own a single kimono. There will be photos when I get this. Also the La Femme Ruffle Top by Isla. This unique stripey top (which you can see me holding in the above pic) is so cute and actually part of a two piece, but I tried on the skirt and it's way too long for my short stature and just completely did not work on me. But would look lovely on others I'm sure!

Nightingale Kimono + La Femme Ruffle Top
Since both of these are probably more suited for warmer weather, I decided I wasn't in a complete hurry to have them in my wardrobe so the layby would suffice. There's also another pair of shoes on layby there from an earlier time that I need to get out, some open toe black leather mules.

Bye Bye money! See you next paycheck. I'm sure you can see why Scout by Abicus is one of my favourite clothing stores now. And how deadly it is that I live walking distance to it. My poor bank account.

Btw you can find Scout on Instagram here.

Cya! xx
