Silky Boho

It’s officially knitwear season in Sydney! And I must say, one of my favourites. There’s something beautiful about a chilly morning with the sunshine beaming down. I remember those autumn days fondly in NYC. This season is sometimes a difficult one to style. A mix of bare legs and covered arms, it still confuses me to this day! Will I need a scarf? A jacket? Sydney weather is a little crazy at the moment. I leave the house like a winter in Vancouver and return with my laptop bag stuffed with the layers that I am removing throughout the day!

Today’s look is trans seasonal. If you want to add a jacket, I would definitely suggest either a straight up black leather, or an oversize cardigan. Usually I channel either a boho look or a tailored look, but felt like mixing both styles today with a silk tailored skirt and a trusty bohemian fedora. The look is a little playful and has an aspect of folk to it. The movement of this skirt is a dream and couldn’t resist a few dancing shots to show off the shape! H&M in Melbourne is seriously the best store I have been too. Not only do they have ‘The Studio Collection’, but the merchandising and building itself is well created down to the finest detail. The gold light fixtures and architectural white roof is definitely a interior designers dream! 

I paired the skirt with a plain white tee and warm scarf with charcoal notes, to compliment my dark boots. How cool are the open design on the sides? The heel is just the right size for everyday, and they look good with denim cutoffs too.

Excited to share with you my upcoming trip this weekend! My first resort review will be up on the blog next week! And I have some cosy knitwear pieces to share with you. Keep up to date on my Instagram for a live update of my whereabouts! More to be revealed on Sunday!

Bohemian Texture Mix

Fashion Week is done and dusted for another year…..In Australia that is! Had such a blast meeting new faces and creative like minded people. That’s what makes Fashion Week worth it. It was also a great opportunity to capture some street style shots of some of the bloggers and influencers that have amazing style and presence. This weekend I chilled out and took the time to relax and sift through some of the outfit shots I photographed before Fashion Week. As you know, weekends are my time to be at one with relaxed bohemian style. And this velvet kimono can definitely help me channel those vibes. I love the detailing and fringing. The gold notes add a bit of luxe and revival to a 70’s fabric. It only needed a white tank underneath. Easy breezy.

This leather skirt is one of the softest I own. High waisted: check, comfortable fit: check and metal detailing: check. Small, yet important things! I also decided to style this look with my Dior sunglasses to compliment the high end feel to the kimono. And of course, a trusty pair of Senso boots to add a bit of edge to any look. 

The weather has taken a change for the worst in Sydney today. High winds and rain non stop. So not sure when I can brave bare legs again! I guess this post will be the last tan legged one in a while. Cue the fake tan please lol!

Hope you are all staying dry, or if you are coming into spring right now I am very jealous of any cherry blossom that’s currently falling around your feet. Have a good week!
