Surry Hills Stripes

There are so many cute hidden spots in Sydney and have yet to discover them all. Ever since making the move here, I’ve always had a soft spot for the dreamy houses in Paddington. But the suburb next door is just as cool and have been eager to try out the coffee shops for a few weeks. Our collaborator Jo has been away in Paris and London for the last few shoots so it was lovely catching up with her and Andrea this weekend over an AMAZING breakfast!

Black and white has dominated retail for the past two seasons, and it looks like it’s here to stay until the end of this year.  Ellery’s show at Sydney Fashion Week this April featured dramatic monochrome looks, which created a media frenzy due to the setting at Bondi Iceburgs and a breathtaking show. Dion Lee and Bec & Bridge also sported black and white stripes in relaxed suiting separates. 

Today’s dress is really versatile as it can be styled for winter with tights and boots. But as you’ve probably guessed, Sydney is having a pretty mild winter so bare legs were a lot easier to brave than a winter’s day in the UK! I wanted to make the look a little more edgy adding a leather jacket and my trusty Senso boots that I am slightly obsessed with. As it’s the weekend and a vibrant neighbourhood it was fun adding this Ace Of Something Fedora to Boho up the look a little. It was actually a little refreshing adding some pastel into my wardrobe which is new to me.
