Slow Paced Weekends

Weekends are for brunching. I honestly look forward to a sleep in and good plate of eggs on a Saturday morning, washed down with a good cup of tea. That’s how most of my weekends play out. It’s a time to relax, get creative and head to Surry Hills. It’s my one of my favourite areas for brunching, although McMahon’s point and Bondi come a close second! Although the weather is being freakishly hot this week, there was a short spell of Autumnal teasing a couple of weeks back. Sydney, just give me colder weather please? I have this conversation on a daily basis with my colleagues at work “I just want to wear a jumper”, "What do you think of this coat online?". They must be thinking deep down “Why did this Pomme move to Australia?” Yes, I moved with false hope believing I would step foot onto Ramsey Street, but now I am settled in Sydney I can actually see pockets of European feels to the city.

Today’s look I'd like to think as city chic. It’s the kind of outfit that’s nice enough for a work meeting, or for just catching up with friends on the weekend. I have opted for this Staple The Label off shoulder top which is quite different to other similar styles in my closet. I LOVE the extra fabric that drops loosely from the shoulders, with this piece feminising my masculine tailored look quite nicely.  My cigarette pants are the perfect mix of comfortable and smart. It’s also good to know that these  pants are a sustainable fashion item. With life being face paced and busy, it’s easy to drop into Zara or H&M to pick up that affordable fashion piece. As I learn more about slow fashion, it teaches me that buying from big chains isn’t always the most smart option. I’m not a complete convert into the slow movement just yet, but personally don’t own a huge wardrobe, so find it effortless to invest in higher quality pieces that will last.

I’ll get a lot of wear out of these into the colder months with ankle boots and a nice chunky coat. For now, rolling them up does just the job paired with my Gucci loafers.
