Coffee Break

HANSEN & GRETEL DRESS / VINTAGE BURBERRY COAT (HERE) / ZARA BLAZER / NAKEDVICE SHOES / BEMBIEN BAG

Happy Monday Guys! Today was spent shooting heaps of content for various brands and sourcing products & inspiration for the next few weeks ahead. Of course all of this couldn’t be possible without coffee, so here is what I wore during my coffee break.

Sunday Best

SPORTSGIRL BERET / OUMA TOP / AGOLDE JEANS / ROBOTY RECZNE BAG / NAKEDVICE SHOES

Happy Sunday Everyone! Here are a few shots from the weekend – which was largely spent watching movies in the afternoon and visiting new restaurants/cafes in the evenings. I hope everyone had a beautiful and relaxing weekend. This week is going to be one of the busiest yet so I will be sure to post as much as I can about everything I am up to!

Burberry Coat

THE FIFTH TEE / JEFFREY CAMPBELL BOOTS / VINTAGE BURBERRY TRENCH / OUMA SKIRT (VINTAGE) / ATTENTION FRAMES SUNGLASSES

I found this vintage Burberry Coat recently in a second hand shop down the road from my place. It was kind of one of those moments where the minute I spotted it, I just knew I had to own it. It is super oversized, which I love and although it is in almost perfect condition, it still has this really vintage, pre-loved vibe about it. I pretty much intend to wear it everywhere, with everything, always & all days. I popped a few links of similar, brand new ones below but if you are wanting to purchase a vintage one, there is such an amazing selection on eBay (here) and priced so reasonably!

Lime Green

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I spent the weekend catching up on work, furniture shopping with my best friend and sipping soy lattes at various cafes around Melbourne.

The LV belt is a recent addition to my wardrobe and I really love pairing it back with super easy/cheap basics, like this lime green mens tee from H&M and the vintage trousers I literally wear every single day (see here for details). Also, I recently added a little extra colour to my hair. I told my one and only hairdresser (Michelle from Rubi Hair Melbourne – Richmond Salon – she is literally the best just FYI), that I wanted to look like I’d spent some time in the sun and definitely not at a hair salon, and she literally did just that. She is amaze and you all should go to her ASAP for all your hair requirements – just sayin’.

Red Stripes

Because you all loved this outfit so much on Instagram, I figured I should probably do a little post on it. I am always a huge fan of striped shirts, particularly when they are red. I think I have about 5 shirts that are almost identical to this one now, but I really loved the lux-satin feel to this one, so figured it was a wardrobe necessity. I got it from Zara about a week ago, but also linked a few slightly nicer/more expensive options below. The pants are vintage and by vintage I mean, I found them in my mums wardrobe… they are from JAG and she told me she bought them 30 years ago, when she was about my age – cool huh? I obviously couldn’t find the exact same ones… but found a few similar ones below too. The closest I could find are these ones from Uniqlo. They are super affordable too! 

Picnic By The River

Picnic by the river at Lindenderry Estate in Red Hill.
We spent the afternoon sipping Moscato, grazing and enjoying the sunshine. The food here is simply divine and has totally exceeded all our expectations.

The top I wore for the picnic is from MLM and the skirt is from Elka Collective but unfortunately neither are available anymore, so I have linked a few similar options below!

 

 

Lindenderry Estate

Yesterday we arrived at the beautiful Lindenderry by Lancemore in Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula. After settling in, we spent the afternoon exploring the Estate and shooting in all the different corners of this beautiful location. We dined at the The Dining Room in the evening and were treated to a beautiful three course meal with matched wines – the perfect end to the day.

2017 has been the year of colour and more specifically the year where red became the new black. Finishing off the year with a red hot bang I plan to bring in the new year in a little red number, drinking far too much champagne on my balcony with friends. You can shop all my favourites at SHOPBOP here and don’t forget, they still have their amazing sale running, which you can check out here

 

The Vintage Leather Satchel You Need Right Now

Today I wanted to share with you a vintage-inspired leather bag brand I have recently discovered called Beara Beara.

Having always loved the feel of vintage-inspired bags and satchels, this stunning piece from Beara Beara is no different. With an incredibly inspiring story behind the brand, this truly is a leather bag brand to know. Beara Beara offers a wide range of high quality pieces, with an obvious attention to detail and craftsmanship like no other. The brands strong British influence is obvious in all the design elements and the affordable price tag makes it an easy pick. I was interested to learn about how the brand remains unique in a world where high-street fashion reigns, but by sourcing vintage materials and keeping a close tie to their connection to Bolivia (where the brand originated), they are able to create a point of difference in a market place where quality isn’t always given first priority. Beara Beara creates for the people who value quality, design & craftsmanship over fast fashion and with this in mind, they have established a very well respected company.
