Its starting to get a little cooler in Australia but its not quite winter yet and I am not ready to go for a full winter wardrobe. So below I’ve matched a Cameo skirt with a simple high neck Cue top similar here. I have teamed it with my long Italian leather boots and a bright jacket. This Jacket from Veronika Maine 2014 Winter range is still one of my favourites because lets be honest everyone loves a little colour in the cooler months. xoxo
Sometimes its nice to go with simple. This top was a last minute selection I made while shopping at Myer and is one of those tops you can wear over and over again. I am loving high necks at the moment but even more I’m loving the sleek cut that resembles a triangular shape leading up into the neck which is both slimming and flattering showing off the shoulders.
Adding a simple Cue Skirt and Tony Bianco Wedges I was able to create the perfect outfit channelling a relaxed corporate look. Perfect for a balmy Sydney Evening. Checkout that Sunset! xoxo
Introducing my stylish sister Lucy. How exciting is my old school Sass and bide party dress! This little beauty has been sitting in my wardrobe for over a year. It just shows you that little black dresses never go out of fashion. Matching me Lucy is wearing the Sass and Bide Capelet from last winters collection along with her favourite Aje. Sorian Skirt in black. Her chosen clutch for this evening is Louis Vuitton Favourite MM
Keeping with the theme here is one more of those Tigerlily dresses i was telling you about. This one is the Tigerlily Bromus Dress in Marine. Perfect for a beach day. Blue and white stripes… one of my favourite combinations.
Watching the sunset over Sydney Harbour while drinking an organic coconut cocktail….. How lucky am I! Tigerlily has always been my go to label for summer dresses and this year was no exception. I’ve been loving all their different patterns because they seem to remind me of my childhood in which I began my love affair with dresses. Below I am wearing Tigerlily’s Boheme Dress in Rouge always flattering and perfect for those warmer nights.
Bondi beach… The perfect backdrop for any photo shoot… Today’s look begins with One Teaspoon shorts because i am absolutely in love with One Teaspoon at the moment… these are the Happy Bandits Happy shorts. They are perfect because they create the elusion of extra long legs and everyone LOVES LEGS. Also wearing a basque top and converse shoes ❤️
Its spring which means its time to dust out that section of your wardrobe full of pretty dresses you have been looking longingly at throughout winter. You know the ones. Those dresses that are just far too perfect to team with a black stocking and heavy boot.
Im so excited to be back in Melbourne although its slightly colder than NYC summer its a perfect excuse to once again enjoy the winter fashion. I really have missed Melbourne shopping… One of my favourite shopping hotspots in Melbourne is Chapel St South Yarra! So close to Elwood this is practically my local shopping strip as well as my favourite brunch domain. A quick little stop into Aje one of my favourite Australian designers and i was set. A cold day in Melbourne called for my royal blue Veronica Maine winter jacket. This piece ads a bright finish to any winter outfit casual or formal . Teamed with my Witchery knit and boots i was perfectly dressed for a Melbourne winters day.
After a wonderful afternoon on Chapel we ventured to Hotel Windsor on Spring street in the city for a relaxing afternoon tea. French Champagne on arrival, pots of tea, sandwiches and scones jam and cream displayed on silver three tiered stands in the magnificent settings of a historic hotel. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
Brooklyn… one of the most trendy suburbs in the city of dreams. The famous Brooklyn Bridge has always been on my list of must see sites so as you can expect i was so very excited to get there. We set off on another hot summers day to walk along this architecturally beautiful bridge.
NYC weather was once again spectacular so we set off to spend the day exploring central park. Feeling like a scene right out of a movie we wondered around the lakes surrounding the park. This park really has something for everyone… check out the fun fair while eating a hot dog or walk along the pristine lake to find the row boats. Take a romantic row along the lake….
Another must do item on our list was to visit Magnolia Bakery and get some treats for our relaxing day in Central park. This sounds easy but once inside Magnolia Bakery good luck choosing from the many different varieties. Who knew cupcakes could come in so many flavours. I was in HEAVEN! After a difficult choice we found a beautiful little grass patch along the river bank and started to work on our tan. Could life get any better. I could have stayed here for days. Central Park you really are magical.
On our mission home down the streets of NYC we only got lost a few times but look what we found!!! LOVE IN NYC.
Our quick stop at Victoria Secret also proved successful. One of my favourite things about this city is the shopping and what better way to finish our afternoon in the sun than buying some beautiful underwear. May have gone a little overboard but hey!!! WHEN IN NY.
We ended the day with a wine at a cute little bar on the waters edge in Long Island City. This little bar had the most spectacular view.
