weekend edition : tapestry dress & the chiffon dress

Hello loves,

my weekend is always a happier one when spent in the company of my closest friends. So I am a happy camper πŸ™‚

This was the look for dinner last night :

So I did decide to rehash the tapestry dress, with a less formal style. I was happy to have found a long necklace to go with the dress, with a pendant purchased from Australia, an old favourite. Added my black bowler hat to the mix.

That last pic is classic me, cheeky and stifling a laugh πŸ˜‰

Sunday was a simple day out for coffee with the hubster. I absolutely loved my dress for Christmas last year, didn’t have time to take a proper photoshoot then so here it is.

I’d gotten this hair crown quite a while back last year but I didn’t know if it suited me. I was resigned to leaving it as a chew toy for my cat Bindi (yup she loves munching on flowers), but on a whim I asked my Instagram followers if this hair crown was a good look on me. I guess you know what the answer was πŸ™‚

This dress has got to be the Most comfortable dress and it’s perfect for the humid climate here.

It was a sunny afternoon, perfect for the look I was going for πŸ™‚

I have a penchant for jewellery and hair accessories, so Im planning to get a few snazzy pieces over this year. I love the way these little accents make such a difference!

A few years back, I wouldn’t have dared to bring attention to myself by wearing a hat or dressing to the nines. Plus, why dress up when there wasn’t an occasion to call for it?

Well that attitude is gone!
and I hope you bring on some sass to your daily looks, have some fun!

Have a good week ahead my darlings,
chat very soon. Remember to be kind to yourself, you deserve love & respect and don’t let anyone make you think
Otherwise.

all my love,
Aarti Olivia xxxo

  1. You’re right, the accessories totally make both looks! I love the dress and hat (swoon!) in the first look, and the flower crown and shoes in the second look are divine. I love your expressions too. πŸ™‚

  2. Hey Aarti! Hope you don’t mind me being formal that way. I like the hat you are wearing. You look like you are considering going for a little run in an open field:) Yea I know that’s corny but you just look happy and I wanted to tell you that. Have a good weekend and stay happy.

    1. thank you dear!!
      yes I did feel like I was a flower child ready to lay down on wild flower fields, I love nature immensely πŸ™‚ I am very free spirited and get a rush from the sense of independence & that light weighted feeling one gets when surrounded by something or people she loves. I did feel happy taking those pictures, I am glad they translated well in the images! love you dear girl, have a fab new week ahead xx

    1. merci beaucoup Harsha!!
      Just trying new looks and ‘avatars’,
