March Favourites

Happy Easter long weekend everyone! I’m lucky enough to also have the week off thanks to our mid semester uni break, so fingers crossed it’s a productive week!

And here we are again with another monthly favourites and like always here I am questioning how quickly the previous month has gone, but honestly I can’t believe it’s April already! Lots of exciting things are happening in April and I can’t wait to share everything with you all. But first, here are my March favourites:

1. Steve Madden ACEDD boots (available here)
I've been pairing these boots with absolutely every one of my outfits recently. I'm absolutely in love with the dark charcoal colour (not black! Surprise!), studded detailing and the low heel, which makes it ultra comfortable and perfect as an everyday shoe. They look amazing with black leather pants (like the one I've been wearing recently by Oneoneseven) or with torn denim shorts and a black blazer with the sleeves rolled up. Definitley my new favourite boots for the colder days!

2. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (available here)
Since the weather has been getting colder and colder recently here in Melbourne, my skin has been feeling more dry and dehydrated than usual. This has been my go to foundation thanks to how moisturising the formula is and how lovely it sits and looks on the skin even throughout the day. You can read my full review on the Nars Sheer Glow here.

3. Runway Scout Leather Shorts (
Leather shorts have become one of those staple leather pieces. I've seen a lot of faux leather running shorts recently, but I have to admit, this is the best one I've seen. Despite the cold weather, I've been loving these faux leather shorts from Runway Scout (LOVE this website!). The faux leather is a lovely soft material which is super comfortable to wear and the shorts even have pockets which I was so excited to see (I hate shorts/pants that don't have pockets!!). I've been recently pairing these shorts with a black button up or a light denim shirt (I love denim and leather (and leopard!) together). These shorts aren't available yet on the Runway Scout website, however you can email the AMAZING Susan at to order. 

4. Tara Wolf Zodiac Bracelet (available here)
I've been wearing my Scorpio bracelet every single day since I got it this month. I've been really into the whole silk cord bracelet trend and pairing this bracelet with my TW chakra bracelet (which I featured in my previous monthly favourites) has been my new favourite thing. You can purchase these bracelets with a specifically coloured cord (special to your Zodiac sign) or with a standard black cord. Black cord thanks!

5. SkinnyMe Tea (available here)
I've been on my 28 day teatox for around 3 weeks now, and I'm really enjoying it - especially drinking it on the go in my hot pink T2 cup. I'm not going to talk too much about it for now, I'm saving all my thoughts for my full review that will be out around the end of the week, so stay tuned! 

6. Louis Vuitton Speedy 35
No surprises here!

7. Shilla Expectations Chunky Knit (
This knit is the greatest thing that's happened to me this month (slight exaggeration). I'm beyond LOVING this label since I discovered it late last month, and if you haven't heard of them before, make sure you head to the Shilla website to check out their pieces and styling. Right up my street! When I think about, I've probably worn it everyday I've been at uni, oops! Not only is the material a super soft comfortable knit but the shape is what I really love. I'm not a fan at all of jumpers that finish well below the hips, I find it looks a bit weird. But I love how this knit sits just at the hips, just enough to see the waistband of your pants/shorts/skirt but not showing any skin of course. Just a simple everyday basic that everyone should have in their wardrobe, regardless of the season!
