SYD.

AW4A1768

Ahhh and another Monday is upon us, just like that. I can’t believe most of January has already flown by – does time just move a lot quicker as you get older?

Anyway.. today I just wanted to share a few pictures that we shot the other day when I was in the city, not for the outfit but more because I got the rare opportunity to shoot in front of Sydney’s iconic monuments without (what appears to be) a single soul around me.

Of course, in reality, I had a tonne people all around me as it was the middle of the day but with some excellent photography by Mr Londonite, we managed to get a couple of amazing shots.

The outfit itself for the day was a simple all black ensemble. My current favorite pair of black jeans from ASOS combined with a chiffon bardot top, some ‘barely there’ strappy black sandals, a black quilted bag and of course, the Quay ‘My Girl’ glasses for a pop of colour and some drama.

Today marks exactly two weeks until I start travels for 2016 and I am so excited – it’s been a couple of months since I was last on a plane and I have definitely been feeling the itch! <3

I hope you guys have an amazing start to the week.. until the next post!

By the Sea.

Who doesn’t love a bit of Monochrome, ay? For today’s post I went back to what I love most – something classic with a twist.

To me, nothing is more chic than a monochrome ensemble and I simply loved this look with it’s hint of edge with some daring accessories.

I teamed a pair of gorgeous wide legged pants from The Iconic with a black camisole with gold chain straps and some strappy black heeled sandals from ASOS – a fairly simple look on it’s own but by adding a statement clutch like this one from Skinny Dip London and a wide brimmed sun hat, it brings a whole load of drama. To complete the look, I added a couple more touches of gold with a few bracelets and a statement cuff from Little Mistress and a pair of gold framed Ray Ban aviators.

Hello my loves! Before I get into anything else, a very happy 2016 to you all. I hope that the new year has kicked off to a great start for you guys and that those new years resolutions are in full effect as we reach the middle of January… I decided to try and get active this year and eat healthier but alas, I’ve already had a couple of cheat days – why is it so hard to stop eating food that’s bad for you?! Ha.

I’ve been adjusting to life away from London – it’s been a challenge but so exciting at the same time! I have to confess though, the Aussie summer is nothing like what I expected. It’s either insanely hot or pouring – but here’s a look from a day that was one of those rare days where you get the best of both worlds. A storm was brewing and the air had a little bit of a chill in it that day, so I finally got to wear a drape jacket (aka my comfort blanket). I teamed a gorgeous sleeveless soft long vest from Tokito clothing at MYER and a sleeveless knit from ALL ABOUT EVE, also at MYER. I teamed them with my trusty pair of distressed jeans from TOPSHOP – these babies are so perfect for sucking in the post holiday season pounds.. ;). I slipped on these ever so comfortable but gorgeous pair of espadrilles from David Jones which I picked up in their New Year Sale. Finally, to accessories I added a few accents of gold with a couple of bracelets and some midi rings, a black fedora and a small handbag.

On another note, I know I’ve been soo slack in the last couple of months but leaving London took it’s toll on me and I’m soo glad to say that I’m all settled in now and am sooo excited for my travels next month. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks trying to get my mojo back and can honestly say, I am once again excited for all things Londonite :)

As always, thank you for reading.. until the next post!
