Contrasting Ethereal Lace & Leather

Last week summer was definitely here in Sydney, and after my trip back to Europe at Christmas I am happy to be back in the sunshine capturing street style with the beautiful late afternoon golden sun beaming down. And this week I am channelling bohemian chic in ethereal lace and contrasting leather. I have visited Coogee a few times but have never really paid attention to the streets and buildings. It’s always a visit from the 2 hour coastal walk from Bondi, so always end up on the beach! Andrea and I headed to Coogee mid afternoon last Friday (with a cheeky stop at Sababba in the junction first). Fed and watered, we stumbled across this European looking street with blue accents on pillars and window sills. If you follow my Instagram, you will know how much I love blue and white so I was sold instantaneously! A fresh cut and colour by my super stylist Paul, we were ready to shoot!

Streetstyle is how Boho Tailor began, and it always reminds me of the the 4 major fashion weeks which all lovers of fashion look out for online. For me, the style on the streets is far more fascinating than on the runway. There’s a sense of individuality and creativeness with everyones inner stylist shining through. 

This lace maxi dress hugs in all the right places. I would never usually choose a piece like this, but as soon as I pulled out this old leather vest I knew it would look a little edgy, yet feminine all in the same breath. The intricate detailing is beautiful and I love the neckline. I am usually too short for maxi dresses but this one is the perfect length! How cute are these shoes?? Jo Mercer is a brand that I’ve been introduced to over the last few weeks. Styles range from high mules to dainty summer sandals. The white croc is clean and polished, and that silver heel makes them feel a little Cinderella-esque. Nothing wrong with that! A dainty white necklace was enough for this dress, complimented with a grey croc styled envelope clutch bag (which my best friend in the UK bought me for Christmas). When taking pics for my blog, I like to have a big selection of images to capture the environment and styling, and I must say, Andrea and I take heaps of shots so it’s always hard narrowing them down! This is one of my favourite posts since my all white look in Paris. Maybe this means that white is my colour?

Hope you all had a great weekend and let me know your thoughts on the new setup of the blog. Part 2 in Coogee will be up next week!
