What a week it has been.. I apologise for emails that haven't been replied to and general slackness on social media. I am now a month off graduating and keeping up the online store, blog, commissions and a large advertising campaign to start in October has kept me working and stressing from the moment I wake up to the moment I hit the pillow after midnight. I would love to say I am one of those very chilled people - but anyone who knows me knows that is far from the truth. I try put myself 100% into everything and it often leaves one very exhausted jasmine. 

This weekend Michael and I woke up both days at the crack of dawn to carry out this shoot today and my portfolio shoot yesterday. Huge thanks to The Autumn Co for letting Michael and I paint up a storm in their studio, I will be sure to share some of that soon. 

Back on clothing topic though - straw is my spring / summer friend. In August 2013 I had the watermelon clutch on my wish list from Chip Chop and I was so stoked to see this lemon version brought out this season. Keep it simple with clean black and white! I also have realised I have worn midi skirts to death lately, but I am really struggling to find a non-midi skirt that I like lately. I don't know why but they all seem a fall a little flat for me. 

Please let me know if you do come across one in your online store travels though!

I will also be down to Melbourne next weekend with Michael for a late birthday treat so leave me comment of things to do while we are there :)
