I have been searching for the perfect accessory for this season. I know when looking at all of the gorgeous designs from NYFW sky blue continually made appearances. When trying to find similar styles on my own, there were bags that just didn't suit the season. There were incredible shoes, but completely unaffordable. When I became an ambassador of Capitola watches I was super excited to find this faux velvet watch with (obviously my favourite) rose gold hardware. Everything in rose gold is always so much prettier, isn't it? Unlike the shoes I mentioned earlier, their watches are completely affordable! Yes Capitola's watches are cheaper than MVMT and Daniel Wellington, but with similar clean lines and classic styles. You can use MYVIOLETDELIGHTS15 to make them even cheaper again if you want too. What's more important is how can we style this?
I hope everyone is having an amazing week. As you may have seen on Instagram already, I am running a giveaway.

Terms & Conditions:
There's nothing more exciting than fabulous new season pieces. Bags this season are all about elegant details and texture. The woven handbag trend has continued into larger, more structured pieces for those of you who are entering Spring. Faux animal print and a snakeskin texture adds the perfect detail to an Autumn look. As for colours black, nude and natural tones are an obvious choice, but for a pop of colour try sky blue or a bold yellow.
I hope you are having an amazing day. I think we all know the beach is my happy place. It reminds me breath, be came and just be. I love that feeling. Today's look was from a beach trip/shoot day on Saturday. Thank you so much @kelsey_gordon_ for being my photographer for the day.
I think we all know that denim is wardrobe essential. This pinafore is the perfect piece for casual transitional season looks whether you are in Spring or Autumn. It is so easy to layer with a lace crop or a pastel knit if you are in Spring. Whilst if it is Autumn try pairing it with mesh top or a mustard knit (but who are we kidding Autumn has not made an appearance yet anyway).
I hope you are having an incredible weekend. My favourite part about the weekend is that you can wear incredibly cute Summer pieces that you can't wear during the week. I know in 2016 I talked about balloon sleeves and puffy sleeves as a trend. They are back again this year, but like anything else bigger! No really, the sleeves are bigger this year. Whether you are just about to head into Spring or Autumn puffy sleeves are a must have for your transitional season wardrobe. Spring means you finally get to wear floral crops with puffy sleeves while Autumn means big sleeves making an elegant statement whilst layering. I have been waiting for some of the more affordable brands to begin stocking puffy sleeve pieces. Below I have some more affordable options with a few splurge pieces as well. Some are almost sold out, so I highly recommend getting in quickly.
I hope you are having an amazing week. If not remember it's almost the weekend! This week I wanted to put together any easy weekend uniform look featuring linen. I was so happy when this skirt arrived, not only because it fit properly and looked how I expected, but because it was actually lined. I love the colour of the fabric and the raw edge hem. Satin and linen are a match made in heaven due to the rich textures that balance each other out perfectly. I have linked some satin cowl neck tops and linen skirts below. I have been blown away by how pigmented and how smooth the texture is. I am in love! The blush and lipstick I used in this look I have seen @emmachenartistry use many times. They compliment each other beautifully. If you don't follow her on Instagram, I highly recommend checking her out: Ultimate "Summer Hunny" vibes. Shop the look at the bottom of this post.
I hope you're having a wonderful start to the year. If you follow me on Instagram @myvioletdelights you would have already seen me talking about this genius clothing line. To me this dress is the ultimate lazy girl wardrobe piece. Billie Mae's concept: pieces that you can wear from bed to brunch. No, this isn't an ad I actually just love this! Not to mention you guys know how important it is to me to share Australian brands.
It is that wonderful time of the year where everything feels magical (well, except for those of you who work in retail...sorry). New Years Eve is fast approaching and it is super important to have the perfect outfit to make you feel happy and confident to start the new year in. I had a couple of NYE pieces in my Festive Season Lookbook 2018, as well as, Christmas pieces if you also want to check those out. If you haven't sorted your NYE outfit yet I definitely suggest to find something ASAP before everything is sold out. *Edit: Dissh now has 20% off their dresses which may come in handy for you. Code: DRS20. Shop their dresses here.*
I hope you are all having a spectacular start to December. I have been trying to cram in as many Christmas experiences before I go on holidays. It is time for my annual Festive Season Lookbook. *happy dance* Over on Instagram you guys asked for some styling suggestions, so I will be doing a lot more talking this year to give you those suggestions rather than just pretty pictures. I tried to give this year more of an Australian theme for a little bit of Aussie pride to show you what it's like on this side of the world. It also means that there are pieces you can actually wear if Christmas day is going to be boiling hot like it is here.
