Mash up with prints: Topshop kimono and floral dress

Topshop floral dress

Topshop flats (in last picture)

Hello Hello Hello! I hope everyone has been well. Thank you for the great comments, for the last post. But the best people you have to thank are those fantastic bloggers I interviewed! They are great! If you want to learn more about them, please visit: The Electric Heart Girl, Hummingbird Girls and Autumn-Castle

I'm in a better mood lately, because I'm finally getting some job interviews lined up. I won't go into too much detail right now, but its FOUR this week, including an awesome internship with a fellow Sydney blogger (I'm hoping to get this one the most). I've done 2 interviews now, I have another 2 to go. Wish me luck!

When I was feeling down, my boyfriend was constantly trying to cheer me up (sweet sweet man). But, he has INSISTED I take some photos out in the city at night, he claiming the lighting is *awesome* and that the photos will look better. But as a per-caution I made him take some in the sunlight. I hope he doesn't see that I only took one photo from our night shoot. Teehee 

Hope you like my mix of prints. I love this Topshop dress. You know those special dresses you leave on the hanger on your door so you can stare at it all day knowing you're saving it for that 'special occasion'? Well this dress is that one. Beautiful floral border print!

xx Natalie

PS I was featured in Isabella's Views of Now blog. A fantastic post. Thanks Isabella!

  49. I absolutely love the dress you're wearing, the print is beautiful. So is the kimono top too, by the way.

    I'm so happy to hear that you've had some job interviews already. Fingers crossed !

    I'll have to side with your BF, I think the last picture is gorgeous. The city lights are beautiful, but I think another outfit would match the setting a bit better. :)

    Kisses !
