Bonjour!! As you can probably expect, I am not in Paris right now. Although I can't magically conjure up the cool, spring air (as opposed to this sweaty heat), I can inject a certain Parisian je ne c'est qais (French readers- sorry if my attempt at Francais is utterly embarassing) into my style. Cue this oversized flowy check-print skirt, which, quite suitably, is made up of the three colours from the French flag.

Despite the crazy crazy heat, I still want to rock the turtleneck trend. And this little singlet top from American Apparel is the perfect way to do it without passing out from over-heating. Ah... reverse season problems, you see!

On a more exciting note, it's less than two weeks until Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. **Grins** Eeeeeeeeeeee!! There's currently a pile of clothes the size of Jupiter on my bed as I organize my outfits. 

After I volunteered backstage last year, it prompted me to really start giving my blog a 100%- so I guess you can call it the birth of 'The Daily Luxe'. At that point, my head went: 'right next year, I'm coming back as a guest.' It just shows what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! I'll be posting a crazy amount of updates on my Insta as the Australian collections roll in, so keep updated by following @thedailyluxe
