Daisy Checkered Crop & Knee Length Boots

Dotti Coat, Glue Daisy Crop, Dotti Skirt, Pay-less Boots, Sportsgirl Bucket Bag, ASOS felt hat

So I was meant to post these photos months ago and somehow life took over and I decided on having a break from blogging, but finally these gorgeous photos are up and I'm hoping to get many more up as mid-semester break is approaching. 

In my time away I've managed to organise a holiday for Japan in January 2017 (yay!), complete the last of my pre-clinical farm placements and make it through another gruelling semester, meaning I am now half a vet! And now is where the fun (and even more challenging) work begins!

Anyway I thought I had better get this outfit up before all hints of winter disappear as we head into spring. So hopefully I'll have a few new pretty Spring inspired outfits heading your way soon!

Speak soon,

Floral Off-The-Shoulder Playsuit & Over-the-Knee Boots | The Perfect Fall Outfit for a Day in Surry Hills

I can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged! I'm so sorry for the lack of posts but I have a few outfit posts coming up that I shot in Sydney over the weekend, and this pretty playsuit was shot in the beautiful Surry Hills.

I'm a sucker for anything floral basically, so when my sister bought this beautiful floral off-the-shoulder jumpsuit off one of my favourite online boutiques I knew I needed to shoot a few photos in it! I love how perfect this outfit is for fall/autumn paired with the fedora and over-the knee boots, I've been waiting all season to wear these boots and I'm so glad I got the chance to wear them in Sydney!

Hope you all have a great week, and I promise to get up another outfit I wore to Sydney some time next week. Speak soon,

Back to Basics | Navy Striped Tee, Button-Up Skirt and Chunky Boots

All About Eve Navy Striped T-Shirt, Dotti Button-Up Skirt, Verali Chunky Boots, Cotton-On Frilly Socks, Renee Loves Frances Leather Purse

I know, I know it's been way too long since I last posted! I haven't had access to a camera these past few weeks but you can rest assured I'll be posting more regularly from now on.

I have recently become obsessed with basic clothing pieces. After stalking many other fashion bloggers these last few weeks I have come to the realisation that my wardrobe was seriously lacking in some good basic pieces such as this amazing All About Eve striped tee and Dotti button-up skirt. And now basic pieces are all I want to wear!

Anyway hoping you all had a lovely weekend stuffing yourself on chocolate. I know I did!

Speak soon,

Pink Vintage Tee & Acid Wash Shorts | Perfect Back to Uni Outfit

Little White Lies T-Shirt, Levis Shorts, White Leather High-Top Converse

Afternoon lovelies, 

How is it back to uni tomorrow?! I have no idea where my holidays have gone! The only thing I'm looking forward to is planning a few uni outfits (and maybe using my new stationery) such as this cute Vintage Tee from Dissh and these Acid Wash Levis that I found for $4 at the suitcase rummages in Brisbane. (Such a bargain!) I love the look of them paired with converse, super cute and practical, especially if you're doing a science degree like me and are restricted to enclosed shoes most of the time.

Besides mentally preparing for uni, I've spent numerous hours lying on the beach trying desperately to soak up the last of those summer rays in the hope that bronzed skin will keep my spirits up as the new semester begins.

Anyway, I'd better go check my timetable and start getting organised for tomorrow!

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday afternoon,

Kelly xx

My Top 10 Island Escape Essentials

Hello lovelies,
I'm so sorry I didn't share this post sooner but sometimes life just gets in the way. Summer is now coming to an end but I still want to share this post with you guys in case you're lucky enough to be jetting off to a tropical island escape while we head towards winter. (In which case I'm very jealous!) Without further ado, here are my top 10 island escape essentials:

1. Cute Bikini/One Piece
For obvious reasons! I'm in love with my Tigerlily bikini and classic style one piece from Show Pony. 

2. Wide Brim Hat & Some Stylish Sunnies
Perfect for protecting yourself from the sun while looking super cute and stylish.

3. Cute Floral Playsuits/Dresses
To relax in while you sip a few cocktails by the pool.

4. Body Scrub
I loooooooove these 2 body scrubs I've been using lately - Soap & Glory's Breakfast Smoothie Scrub and Life's a Beach Coconut Scrub. Both smell so delicious and scrubs are great for scrub off dead skin so your skin is glowing and prepped for some fake tan.

5. Gradual Tanner
Perfect for building up a tan during your holiday but without the damaging side effects of a natural tan. This Bondi Sands gradual tanner gives you the most natural looking tan you won't even be able to tell that it's fake!

6. Sun Tan Oil
I'll be honest, sometimes I just like the look and feel of a real tan, but this Reef sun tan oil has SPF15 so does give your skin the extra protection while letting your skin darken slightly. If you prefer not to damage your skin at all, they also have an SPF30 lotion.

7. A Tropical Fragrance
Such as this Juicy Couture one gets you in the mood!

8. Bronzer and Highlighter
For accentuating that glowing face!

9. Moisturizing Lip Balm and Shampoo and a Liquid Lipstick
Sometimes sand and salt water can wreck havoc on our features including our lips and hair. Make sure you take extra moisturising shampoo, conditioner and lip balm! It will be a life saver! And a liquid lipstick can't hurt for a lasting pop of colour on your lips.

10. Travel Journal & Passport
Definitely the most important item you will need! I love having my travel journal to document all the cool adventures and all the experiences I have when travelling. And this one from Kikki.K is super cute!

What are your summer essentials when escaping on an island holiday? Let me know in the comments below!

Summery Pastel Blue Floral Jumpsuit

Dissh Jumpsuit, Factorie Hat, London Rebel Sandals

I hope everyone has had a fabulous week celebrating Australia Day! If you can't tell from my sun burnt chest, I certainly did! For me it's been an exhausting but fun week and I am super excited to announce that on Saturday I will be heading overseas to Vanuatu and Noumea on a cruise! So I'm planning a massive blog post on my fashion and beauty must haves for an island get-away which will hopefully be coming to the blog soon if I (fingers crossed) get some access to internet next week. 

Anyway, yesterday I was frolicking around Coolangatta in this new pastel blue floral playsuit I purchased from Dissh. I love the pastel blue colour, so pretty and perfect for summers on the beach and the fringe trimming is hippie perfection.

Hoping you all have a great weekend, and for more summer outfit inspiration be sure to check out these posts:

Happy Friday Eve,

My Top 10 Beauty Loves of 2015

So it's already half-way through January and I only just got round to doing sorting out my beauty loves for the past year. I'm sure you guys have read a hundred other blogs summarising their favourite beauty products from the past year but I hope you all enjoy this one nonetheless.

I only really started branching out in the beauty in the past year, so there are still heaps of products I want to try but here are my favourites so far. Some of these products I have also mentioned in other posts, such as this one and this one, so you should check those posts out if you'd like to read me hype about them more!

1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
Such fine milled powders, perfect for setting make up and using as a highlighter for that extra glow! Particularly the middle one, incandescent lighting.

2. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Lengthens and volumizes, what more could you want? When I realised the brush was plastic I thought I wouldn't like it, but it quickly became my favourite mascara of 2015.

3. Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover
Such pretty colour that lasts, I need to get my hands on more! To see swatches of this blush and read some more about it click here.

4. MAC Lipstick in Taupe
A dark brown nude shade. It was a colour that I wouldn't have normally gone for but when I tried it on in store I knew I needed it. It seriously changed up my beauty look in 2015 and quickly became my go to lipstick.

5. Born this Way Foundation in Nude
This is the best foundation I've tried. Such full coverage but moisturising at the same time, which is perfect for my dry skin.

6. L'oreal Lumi Base Magique Primer
This stuff is amazing! When used it makes any foundation look glowy and luminous. Such a beautiful primer and one I will definitely be repurchasing.

7. GHD V Rose Gold Hair Straightner
This is my baby I got for my 21st from Mum and Dad. I love the colour but besides that, I love how well it curls and straightens my hair while still leaving it shiny. When I style my hair with this straightener, my hair stays put for longer and looks beautiful all day. Before this straightener I'd never had a GHD, only a remmington. And I don't think I'll be going back to that anytime soon.

8. Nars Laguna Bronzer
Everybody and their dogs knows about this bronzer but it's honestly the best bronzer I've tried. Maybe even better than my chocolate solei! It gives the best natural bronzy look, I am obsessed with it.

9. Mecca Cosmetica Blending Brush
This has been my go to brush for any eyeshadow look I've done in the past year. It simply gets the job done and blends out my eyeshadow perfectly.

10. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I saved the best for last. This is probably my favourite beauty purchase of 2015. If you don't have this, you need it. Enough said! But if you want to read more about it, click here.

I hope the first few weeks of 2016 have treated you all well! And if you're not already, I'd love for you to follow me on Instagram @anneinthedollhouse. It would mean the world to me!

And tell me what are some of your beauty loves you've had for the past year?

Floral Embroidered Jumpsuit and Wide-Rimmed Boater Hat

Happy New Year lovelies! I hope you are all well and ready to achieve big things this year! Today I'm wearing this gorgeous floral embroidered jumpsuit that I found at a little store in the middle of the Strand shopping centre in Coolangatta. I love the colours of the embroidery; red, orange and peachy colours. It feels nice and summery and is loose fitting so great to wear during these sticky and hot summer days. And this hat is simply stunning, such a perfect addition to any beach-y outfit!

I brought in the new year sitting on the beach, looking up at the stars and watching the fireworks over the ocean. It was quite dreamy really. This year I'm hoping to continue improving on this blog and hopefully squeeze in some travel among keeping up with uni. I've got a cruise in the Pacific Islands coming up in February and I'm hoping to travel to America at the end of this year! Keeping my fingers crossed. 

What are your plans for the new year? I'd love to hear about them!
