Harbourside in Black

This week, I’ve been exploring more of my new neighbourhood after moving suburbs last month. Being over the Harbour bridge and surrounded my pockets of water, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the cool new blog locations I have scouted for future posts! I am slowly making a list of streets in my phone with dream house galore! As today’s look is relaxed linen, it only felt right to find a spot that was near the water to depict the relaxed vibes. It’s been a while since I have worn flat shoes in a post (one where I’m not sitting down to hide my lack of height!) but when the dress fits perfectly with a kick flattering flare, these fringe beauties were the shoe of choice.

It’s spring racing season; and although the fashion for this event isn’t really my cup of tea, this dress could definitely be an option with a pair of heels styled with a glass of champers. I’ve finally got my hands on a 66 The Label boater, which has been on my wish list for the last few months. The bronze colour makes a nice change, and I took the plunge with the oversized style. Jewellery was kept to a minimum with gold, and there was no need for a handbag being only a 5 minute walk from my place. If I was to wear this to the races, I would more than likely style with an oversized  clutch to avoid a cross body bag taking the attention away from the slick horizontal neckline. 

I’ve also had a hair refresh with a cut and colour from Edwards & Co. Decided on a dramatic blunt finish keeping a caramel tone running throughout the ends. And for once, my hair is straight! Hope you all had a great week, and can’t wait to share some more style posts from my new neighbourhood in the coming weeks!

  1. Far out Helen, you keep blowing me away with your beautiful imagery and truly top notch content. It's inspiring, really. I love that you've styled the dress with relaxed items like the boater hat and flats (the ones I've been dreaming of since you got them!).

    That rich warm tone of your hair actually is perfect with the copper hat too (coincidence?). Looks so flattering!
