Tom & I checked out the annual Johnston Street Fiesta yesterday night. It is a Hispanic-Latin American festival celebrating all things Spanish and had the festive buzz like the night markets you see ever so often overseas, but hardly ever in Melbourne. There was a lot of funky food stalls and i think Tom was especially excited about it. We had paella, wood oven pizza and overpriced spiral potatoes on a kebab stick. There was also a stall selling amazing mexican bags with all the colourful weaving that i absolutely LOVE. It was an extremely packed event and i silly-ly decided to wear my new super tall platform wedges. Probably not the best place to break out into new shoes with the bumpy surface and crowds in a market. My dress is from Elliatt, a newly launched Aussie label with the best line of festive pieces, their look book, ‘FIESTA’ and my choice to wear this dress to a Fiesta, was highly coincidental and made me laugh after i realised!
Wearing: Vintage leopard blouse, Romwe lace top, Ally lace skirt, Topshop spotted socks, YesStyleboots, & Chicwish bucket bag.
If you follow me on Facebook you would have seen a sneak peek of this outfit before. This is what i wore yesterday on the day of my last exam of the semester and also the beginning of my three months freedom, It’s a throw-together of a lot of things i like, lace, leopard print, aztec and prep. Fortunately the weather was a beautiful 28 degrees so it really was the perfect day to get dressed for. Not too hot, not too cold. I went with this soft suede bag which i’ve been using pretty much non-stop since i received it. Some lace on lace, a blouse as a light jacket (typical me) as well as some casual low stacked heel boots & spotty socks. Tom & i spent the night checking out things to do in sydney (thinking of going for NYE) as well as heading to our fave fish & chips place to have a huge seafood platter, full of greasy deep fried prawn, fish, calamari, oysters, squid & chips. The bonus part was the free 1/2 dozen oysters offer (which we did not know about) that came with our order. Absolutely mouthwatering. I can’t explain how much i love oysters.
Bohemian, 70s, hippie, gypsy, denim, lace, embroidery, feathers, dream catchers.
These are some of the things that are going through my mind right now when I think about the summer ahead. Images of runaway brides, tall grassy fields, dancing around under clear umbrellas wearing denim jackets and floral maxi skirts. Silent, tranquil clear openings, DIY dream catchers, feathers and fringing on everything and anything. Cropped tops and knitted bottoms, knitted bags and floaty chiffons. This vibe is here to stay, both in my mind and in my wardrobe. So much love.
Check out all the images that are inspiring me this week over on the Inner Circle!
