Currently dreaming of…

roll back knot

Turtlenecks! This black one from Witchery with an open back is top of our list. Although, American Apparel has one here for the same price that is much more classic and practical (i.e. without a huge gaping part in the back…)

Which one to pick?

Surviving the rain

umbrella alamodesty

Sydney has been raining on and off for the past couple of days. Every time this happens I decide it is time to invest in some gumboots and then just as I am about to order them it is sunny again! Sadly, these are not in my size, but maybe you will have a smaller foot than me and be able to take advantage of this amazing listing on Studded Hearts for these Loeffler Randall black rain boots. Otherwise, there are always Hunters.

Update: ASOS is offering 20% off (only to Australia!) with the discount code ONYA20. Makes the Hunters quite a lot cheaper and even more tempting…

Latest purchase: summer slippers




Since last summer I have been thinking about a pair of birkenstocks, but I am always unconvinced. Whilst they look super comfortable, I can’t picture them with any of my summer dresses…. However the style has always struck me, so I went for these simple slip on flats instead! What do you think, have you invested in the birkenstock trend yet?

Vacation shopping list


Jessica Stein and Nicole Warne Source: OOTD

Although the Northern Collective is somewhat transeasonal, here in Sydney you can’t help but think of post-Christmas beach vacations. Beach vacations can be the perfect reason to throw a few things in a bag and give little thought to putting together outfits, which is even easier with the perfect black bikini, (which is possibly found here). However, bikinis aside, here is an idea for a classic summer outfit that will take you from the beach well into the evening, and even maybe to work the next week!

This shirt from Weekday is great – worn as a dress (really only suitable at the beach, unless you are quite short…) or top, worn oversized or fitted, depending on your style preference. This would be perfect paired with plain flat sandals (the ones below are really reasonably priced for leather), a beach bag, and an eye-catching towel. If you need any other reasons, the top looks great tucked into a pencil skirt for work!
