valentines day…

Ahhh, valentines day. You either love it or hate it. Honestly, I get both sides. I think celebrating love is a great thing, but I do think that we should focus on all kinds of love not just romantic love. It is a super commercialised holiday though and that’s where I don’t like it.ย  Also, […]

australia 2.0…

Bali seems like a mini Australia. This Indonesian island is an huge Australian tourist destination. The weather is beautiful, the drinks are cheap, and the food is delicious. More importantly, I think the island has a beautiful energy and lovely people. Surprisingly for an Australian (a half-Australian technically), I hadn’t been to Bali before. It […]

dealing with the heat…

It’s been fairly hot in Melbourne for the past couple weeks. As in 37 degrees and sunny (my poor nose is burnt). Dressing for hot weather is always a struggle because you want to look good but also stay cool! I’ve got some gorgeous silk cami’s and skirts but as soon as I start sweating […]

pairing the unexpected…

It’s my last day of holidays before I go back to work. I’ve spent most of my time reading and hanging out with my beasts (the dogs).ย  I’ve never been that great with too much free time. I’m very much used to always doing something or always being in the process of achieving something. So […]

Underwear as outerwear?

I often see outfits which I want to emulate but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Whether you don’t have the right wardrobe pieces, or you’re simply not comfortable, fashion should be adapted to suit you and your personal style! I’ve always loved the look of underwear as outwear. Its particularly popular now with brands such […]

2019’s agenda…

I’ve always been quite lucky traveling regularly as a kid. We were expats and would move every 2-3 years. While moving this often was difficult, I’ve got to experience some amazing things and become accustom to different cultures and places. I’m sure many of you love to travel, and some of you don’t, depending on […]

new year’s…

I’ve always been undecided about New Year’s. I’ve never really warmed to it. Thats perhaps because I’ve never been a huge fan to saying goodbye to things, but also because I think any time is a good time for a new start. I think setting goals is a great idea, but new year’s tends to […]

welcome to the jungle…

I’ll be honest with you… for a big chunk of my life I thought leopard print was tacky, and in some circumstances I still do. But when I saw this Zara jumpsuit I thought it was so over the top I had to try it on. Denim with pockets and buttons and all, featuring a […]

the beginning…

This isn’t the first time I’ve started this blog. BLACK T first came to fruition when at the end of 2015 in-between semesters at University. After coming back to University my studies took priority over my blog, and while I still adored fashion, my blogging eventually came to a standstill. I’ve always been a perfectionist […]
