Monday 13 October 2014


Last Monday was a public holiday in Sydney, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was my first proper beach filled weekend. It consisted of a 6km walk from Bondi to Coogee stopping by Wiley’s swimming baths, paddle boarding in Manly, movies to see Gone Girl (highly recommended) and a catch up with my blogger babe, Andrea. We usually plan out our locations, but Monday we decided to just wing it and opted for Woollahra. I’m not as familiar with this area of Sydney, but know the houses are quaint and boutiques look like they should be located on a Parisian side street. I fell in love with the character and aged look of this one house and knew it would be the perfect backdrop. It’s not far from my house and the sun was setting on the long weekend. Why couldn't it be longer!!

Today’s look definitely fits in with my monochrome themed wardrobe. My entire look is Staple The Label, which is a Sydney based brand. As you probably know I’m a fan of minimalism, so their “basics with a twist” moto definitely appeals to me. The hemline on the skirt is a little shorter than I would usually wear, but I love the asymmetric cut and the grid pattern I am in love with. The top is like nothing I have seen before. The top half has a faux leather overlay, which adds structure and edge to a basic silk tee. There’s also shorts to match this top, which I’ll be definitely investing in this summer. I am a sucker for an all white look and so much better with a tan!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Heads up, I’ll be doing Bondi Markets in the coming weeks so I’ll keep you updated on the dates.
