Ahh. The freedom! I feel like I haven’t done a proper outfit post since a very long time as I have been sharing travel diaries lately. I picked up this wool coat on my last day of London for a mere 35£ on sale and have been wearing it frequently ever since. I feel like a bright coat is an absolute necessity for gloomy, cold days and after coming back from Sydney, I have come to realise that Melbourne gets pretty cold. Well of course not to the point of snowing cold, but still much colder than Sydney which seems to be averaging 5°C warmer than Melbourne for the whole of this week. I sometimes find coats with longer sleeves a bit chunky to deal with and so I have really been taking a liking towards anything 3/4 sleeved or shorter. Or I can just confess it’s because I’ve been in love with this certain Loeffler Randall coat I saw Jenny Humphrey from Gossip Girl wearing some many years ago. The saddest thing is that it’s sold out, so I’m still on the hunt for something similar!

So what does one of my really, casual outfits look like? Well, I’m not talking about really, really casual which would be trackies and some baggy jumper. I’m also not talking about really, really, really casual which I deem to be my pajamas. I’m just talking about something really easy I wear on say, the weekend to do nothing much :) Well! Here’s a good example. On the weekend before MBFWA, Jess, Yenny, Marg & I went for impromptu brunch and I went in this really comfy outfit. This vintage dress is many sizes too big for me so it hangs loosely and this mustard jumper has a nice baggy fit. I paired this with one of my handmade headbands, a pop of pink in my poodle print socks and my trust Topshop boots which I am pretty much wearing most days, these days. MBFWA was the first time I got to properly meet the other FELLT girls, given I had been in my own little {Melbourne} bubble most of the time prior to this!

On the Wednesday of MBFWA, we were greeted with a very bright, sunny and warm morning. The perfect type of day to bring out a full sequin crop t-shirt I had picked up in London. Marg snapped these shots for me in front of the NSW Art Gallery, a building which looked a little like a miniature version of the Melbourne Parliament House. The Lisa Ho collection show was held in the morning here and so we were quite blessed to have beautiful backlit light to work with. I bought these pants on impulse. They are a bit strange which is why I was first attracted to them (yes I am attracted to strange things) and I still find them quite strange to work with. I thought I’d pair it with a fitted shirt to balance out the voluminous bottom and break it all up with my accessories. A little birds nest on my head, a bit of leopard and light green, a pair of brown lace-up boots and gold jewellery = my kind of outfit!
