Chinatown Leg Show

Favourite cuisine: Chinese, 
visits to Sydney chinatown: One! 

I can’t believe this weekend was my first experience of chinatown! Why hasn’t this happened earlier?! Beautiful sunsets over the city buildings, tram lines and the best yum cha outside of China. It was great fun with Andrea and Jo nearly getting run over by public transport to get the perfect shots! Ever since my days of a dancer, I’ve been a perfectionist through and through. My wardrobe is categorized, the tables have to be white if I’m instagramming my dinner, and most of my blogposts have not a single person in the background! You probably think I live in a city without people! This weekend, I went out of my comfort zone and shot on a busy street which was one of my favourite locations yet, and has inspired me to do more like this.

It’s hard being in a new country not knowing of unusual places to shoot, but it seems the perfect time to have this metropolitan as my backdrop. Sydney has the best of both worlds: beautiful beaches and a city that’s bustling with culture. It also has a pretty sweet sunset, so have started making a conscious effort to snap in golden hour to give you a better idea of the beauty Sydney has to offer. 

Today’s look is a mix between the summer fashion currently happening in the UK and Australia’s poor effort at winter (I’m not complaining!) 16 degrees is classed as cold here, but being a true Brit, bare legs are still acceptable! Crisp white denim shorts, with a fuzzy jumper is contrast at it’s finest and really like mixing up the seasons to try and still stay on trend with Europe. Honestly, these shorts are pretty tiny so styled with a long jacket, otherwise I would have gotten some weird looks! Mules are a must have this season, and couldn’t resist buying them. The metallic block heel fitted in well with the tram tracks and burnished surroundings. I’m looking forward to future posts incorporating more cityscapes!
