September is probably one of the busiest months for the fashion world - New York Fashion week, London Fashion week and Milan Fashion week (etc etc) showcases the upcoming trends and the new “it” items we need in our wardrobes. So what better way to celebrate fashion week by attending the Fashion Shows held throughout the second last week of September in Perth?

This year I attended the Manning Cartell Show because I love love love their designs and patterns. The clothes are unique and can be worn to formal events or dressed down for a casual event. The show consisted of pastel hues, earth tones and flowing dresses for the new season. The models wore silver metallic heels (which I loveeeed) which I predict will be in for the Spring season. There were pops of pinks, orange, metallic silver, white and beige but overall, it was definitely a well presented collection!

Although another highlight of the night is not only viewing a fashion show but sometimes (if you’re lucky), some of the bachelor contestants attend the show to watch. Last year was Blake Garvey and this year I saw Alex (Go team Nikki)! :P

The TPFF has always been a successful event with many volunteers and hard work put in before the show. Volunteering for the TPFF once many years ago made me appreciate the effort and time people put in for these shows and I would highly recommend attending a show next year (for the photos, food, champagne, dressing up and oh did I mention more photos?)!!

Spring has finally sprung upon us and a change of weather means a change of fashion right? Out goes the coats and boots and in with the shorts and t-shirts. Although the sun has never been my favourite because of the tendency of my skin to burn within 5 minutes, I must say, it is nice to have a change in weather. For the first weekend of Spring, I decided to make a trip down to Araluen and Raeburn Orchard to see the tulips and cherry blossoms. It was nice to get out of town for a while and hear the sound of 20 bees buzzing in the orchards and just aimlessly roaming through hectares of land to look at the flowers and trees (we even saw sheep!). The morning began by making and packing finger sandwiches and cake for our afternoon picnic. The day consisted of no discussion of studies or law, stuffing our faces with sandwiches, getting lost in the middle of no where (I still think I'm a good navigator though) and enjoying the last day of the week with a bottle of good ol' ginger beer. 

Although the weather can change drastically during the beginning of Spring, there are a few key transitional pieces for Spring. These are:
  • The Leather Jacket which is versatile for every season really! Its a worthwhile investment for your wardrobe and a piece that you can easily throw on to lift an outfit.
  • The ankle boot - Although the ankle boot isn't ideal for summer, its a good piece to transition from Winter to Spring on those chilly Spring mornings. Ankle boots can be worn with pretty much everything which is why I live in them for daaayys.
  • The knit jumper - this can still be worn over a skirt for those days when its cold in the morning but feels like 30 degrees by noon.

Lastly, a final note on perspective. I've learnt over the last month that as individuals, we tend to always focus on the negative aspects of our lives and not the positive aspects. I admit that I am one of those individuals. Creating a different perspective in our lives by opening up and focusing that energy on the good things in life makes a huge difference to not only you, but for the people surrounding you. Just remember that at the end of the day, if you don't achieve something, its not the end of the world - The most successful people are the ones that learn from experience and help others.

I'm excited for September - there are so many things happening and you'll find out why over the next few blog posts :)
