70's flare + heidi braids


Valleygirl blouse, Target jeans + platforms, Lovisa necklace, Rubi bag, Wolfcub flower crown, OPI nail polish in 'It's my year' 

This is the outfit I wore out op-shopping the other day! I made the mistake of wearing jeans and ended up suffering in the newly acquired 'summer-like' sweltering heat. It has been so hot lately! It's getting me even more excited for the Christmas holidays though; I can't wait. Anyway, I think this is the first time I've ever worn jeans on this blog! These ones are amazing. I took them to the counter with the $50 ready and she scanned them only for me to find out that they were marked down to $30! Don't you just love that? I've always been wary of jeans, but I really like these. The flare flatters my figure quite well. I felt a little '1970's' in this ensemble, but I like it! Being different and unique is good. 

I'm finally on holidays so I have plenty of time to go to the beach and get some healthy colour in my skin (I'm a touch pale!) and increase my blogging a bit! Oh, and I'm planning on making a Q&A video some time in the near future because I haven't made a video yet and I want you guys to hear my voice! :) If you have any questions you can either comment below or send me an email at avenuemblog@gmail.com. I'd really love to hear from you!
Now I'm off to enjoy a Lipton ice-tea because it's a) healthy and b) delish! 
P.S: Sorry about the quality of these photos! I took them after lunch and the sun was quite harsh.

You're such a cutie Maria! If only Perth weather were heated enough to whip out some ice tea haha!

I understand that jeans feeling. I usually try and steer clear of them too, but every once in a while they're nice to wear. And you look lovely in them, definitely flatters you! ^.^

You are so gorgeous! I'm loving this ensemble - I feel like my momma would have worn this when she first got married, back in the 70's. I actually have a top that was hers that looks very similar to yours! Great styling, chica. :)

You are the most precious 15-year-old I've ever seen. Why aren't you awkward and silly looking like most teens? I love your style and I can't wait to read more. xoxox happy holiday!
