Majestic Minimalism

This weekend, a well deserved break was on the cards to The Blue Mountains. When there’s an opportunity to leave Sydney for a getaway I jump at the chance, as still have a lot to see in Australia! When the resort is as beautiful as Hydro Majestic, it's hard to turn down; which I’ll be talking about more in my review post towards the end of this week. 

Today’s look channels elegance and minimalism. An all black look is one of my favourites, and it’s been a while since I have photographed an outfit of block colour. When arriving at the hotel, it was pretty apparent that the style of this look was going to compliment the setting perfectly. Clean crisp grounds with black detailed balustrades, it was definitely a “it reminds me of Paris” kind of moment. And I couldn’t have been happier. The surroundings are really important when I’m styling a blogpost as I like the article to not only feature the beautiful garments, but to take you all to the place I’m visiting though the images. If you’ve read “How To Be Parisian” there's an obvious statement that Parisian women only wear black, and Coco Chanel is a prime example of this. A black pleated dress and tailored jacket felt elegant and classic. It’s also worth noting that it was very windy, which added sexiness and moodiness to the movement of the look. 

Lately, I have been drawn to flat shoes, and these Jo Mercer Pony Skin beauties made the outfit feel more relaxed without taking away the silhouette of the look. Being only 5ft 3, I can sometimes get conscious that clothes either looked swamped or too long but thankfully I didn’t feel like this with today’s look, so I’m glad I didn’t opt for high heels. To style this look for a colder day, I would definitely suggest layering, maybe adding a slouchy cable knit jumper which would still expose the pleats in the dress, yet add contrast to the lightweight movement.

My hair has had a refresh this week! Decided to go a little darker, but have kept the length. It’s starting to look a lot healthier lately and the vintage wave is definitely here to stay! Easily mastered with a curling wand and then brushing out the curls with a paddle brush to create soft waves. Stay tuned for my review of this beautiful resort in the coming days!
