The Look: Wanderlust & A Daily Luxe

  
The ingredients for a happy life: a smile, a bucketful of dreams, a sprinkle of wanderlust and a daily luxe.


 
Top: Style Moi (Get it here)
Culottes: Topshop (Similar)
Bracelet: Lovisa (Similar)

Let me introduce you to my backyard blogging paradise! Hanging jade plants, a king size moon hammock and pretty cushions are just some of the little luxuries that help me to relax and unwind. Although I do have major stress attacks over my blog at times, it is my passion; a place where I can scrawl down all my creative splurges and indulge in my fashion fancies.

When Case App contacted me to design a laptop case, I jumped at the chance to have a little creative  stamp of my own adorning the back of my most creative outlet. Gosh... this sounds confusing. The 'Inception' of creativity much?

As a designer (Karl, eat your heart out), I wanted the skin to capture the aura of my blog. Case App has a nifty, little creative system; where you can choose your backdrop, fonts and insert funky, little clip arts. 

As a tropical fashionsta and self-confessed beach addict, I knew that I had to have a beachy backdrop. Some cute little birds and boho-inspired arrows completed captured my sense of style too. I thought it was too darn boring to just whack 'The Daily Luxe' across the top, so instead, I pondered over something that captured the personality of both myself and my blog.

'Wanderlust and a daily luxe' 

And, hey; it half rhymes. Just call me the next William Wordsworth...

 If you want to indulge in your creative side, Case App are offering my readers a lovely 20% off with the code THEDAILYCASE. Which, quite honestly, is the most awesome-sounding discount code ever.

For today's look, I am trying out the keyhole neckline. I have been completely craving it since I saw it repetitively at Australian Fashion Week and now my cravings have been fulfilled. I am hooked.

These cute Topshop culottes are a vintage-lovers dream. And they are massively comfy; I could totally fall asleep in these babies. Especially in my moon hammock.

    Your design is too cute, and I love how that phrase rolls off the tongue. Designing a skin definitely makes your laptop stand out!
