Happy Holidays!

I hope you've had a festive time filled with love, laughs and copious amounts of food! I think at this point in my life I get more excited about all the amazing food rather than the presents under the tree (not that I'd ever say no presents!), I mean apart from spending time with family of course.

Today we decided to take it easy considering there was really no where we needed to be unlike the past few days. I was tossing up between braving the sales along with the traffic or doing nothing at all, neither happened. Instead we took a short walk around the Botanic Gardens. Even though it wasn't a particularly sunny day, it was beautiful, tranquil and cool at least. I was hoping to spend a lot of time at the beach during my time off but the weather has proved to be quite moody and bi-polar and holiday traffic seems to happen at spots you'd never imagine, so we tried avoiding all that hassle.

So when did I start embracing dresses? I find it perplexing that we go through phases in life. I know it's what happens, but I seem to think existentially a lot, it's just the way my head operates. I have this severe obsession with white little-house-on-the-prairie dresses at the moment. I love the lace and crochet detailing, plus it's such a timeless and easy piece to wear. 

See you all in 2015 and stay safe during the holidays!

Nothing beats an Australian Summer. 

Temperamental weather that brings thunderstorms and heatwaves and as much as I hate the heat, I wouldn't want it any other way, just look at this view.

I've always wanted to visit Balmoral Beach, which is at the lower North Shore of Sydney and with weather like this, the stunning views just get magnified.

'Tis the season to be jolly, it's also the season for Christmas parties. I must admit, I am the most boring person on earth, I would rather be in my stained and ripped house clothes staring blankly at a wall than get dolled up and be out and about in crowds of sweaty and alcohol addled people. It's not to say I don't enjoy that occasionally, so when I do peel myself off the couch and grace the public with my presence, a work Christmas party in this case, it sort of takes a long time for me to recover, no matter how tame the night is. I am well and truly old!!!

Unfortunately I had some errands to run the next day so a sleep in wasn't possible. After seeing how beautiful it was outside, it would have been a shame to just spend it inside closed drapes with an ice-pack on my forehead, so The Boy suggested we explore Rose Bay in Sydney and take a stroll along the water while admiring all the amazing (and expensive!) houses along the way. Fresh air definitely made me feel better.

As it was a last minute plan, I had to quickly throw something on and nothing really beats a simple white tee and striped shorts. Two things I honestly cannot live without, simple tees and anything stripes. I have this Cotton On tee in two other colours and in different sizes for different looks. Gotta cover your bases, right?

Monday has been and gone here and thank goodness for a day off tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the week!

I can't seem to stop reaching for stripes and whites. It's so easy to wear and you can bet it will make you look crisp and fresh. I have definitely toned down my love for colour. In the past, Summer for meant a lot of bright neon colours, not to say I have strayed from that, but I have definitely noticed my wardrobe evolve to something a little more grown up and wearable.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend so far!

Crochet & Pearls

For the past 6 months or so, after seeing photos of everyone on the other side of the world be in summer gear, I have been steadily collecting a lot of white, crocheted or lace pieces. I've mentioned it before, my kind of summer is going to be very white and a little boho. I have never been the type to plan ahead what I'm going to be into for the coming season so this is a little surprising to me, nor have I been so committed to still like a certain style after so long. But I have been slowly accumulating pieces that are not too trendy, yes they have been all white and have some sort of lace or crochet detail to them, but I can certainly still see wearing them for a few years.

I also have to admit that Pearls have taken me aback a bit. It was something I was never drawn to wearing, though I have always admired it. I guess Pearls to me scream out elegance and poise and the first thought that pops into my head are Audrey Hepburn and Stepford Wives with their pearl necklaces and matching pearl studs. Not that there is anything wrong with those looks, I can certainly appreciate different styles, but let's face it, that is just not me. But some amazing jewellery designers out there have incorporated it into contemporary pieces I can see myself wearing. For example these Sarina Suriano Pearl pieces from her Omnis Collection can be worn casually or when you need to be dolled up. Accessories to me need to have that versatility to endure longevity in my wardrobe and let's face it, Pearls will NEVER go out style.

Enjoy your weekend!
