Stripes & Tassels

A couple of weekends back I made the trip to Melbourne for a relaxing weekend after snowboarding. Living in sneakers and thick socks the last couple of weeks, it was time to break out the stilettos for an urban bohemian styled look with tassels and a bit of leg! Even though Melbourne is a short flight south of Sydney, the temperatures in this concrete jungle are a closer comparison to the UK! Thankfully my boyfriend and I had a great cosy hotel to hibernate in when we weren’t checking out the local eateries. I was thrilled to meet up with fellow style blogger, Ina from Rose Taupe blog. I’ve met a few of the Melbourne bloggers over the last 6 months so it was great to meet and get to know her relaxed style over a collaboration behind and in front of the lens. I wish I could have seen some of the other girls, but the trip was planned to relax after our jam packed weekend in the mountains. I definitely need to revisit Melbourne for a blog trip in the near future.













Today’s look is channelling a more boho vibe, but I’ve tried to make it more city chic with a tailored coat and a warm knit and heels. This dress has great movement, and wish I could wear it on it’s on own. Unfortunately it's still too cold. Such a fan of the tassels still, and can see me taking this trend through to summer. Layering I am still holding onto, so this Staple The Label jumper is a nice contrast to the lightweight fabric of the dress. The longline fitted coat adds structure to the look and even though the outfit has a few layers, it doesn’t look too heavy. The high heels elongate the silhouette, which is always welcomed! That said, I love wearing flat shoes for more relaxed, off duty days and my feet thank me for it!

I promise I will have spring looks coming soon! I am just savouring my favourite fashion season for as long as possible! The weather seems to be heating up in Sydney, so will be shooting an editorial styled post on the beach in the next couple of weeks to revisit the coastline. I live in Bondi, so new excuse really! Have a great week guys!
