I have a thing for trousers. Peg top, harem, high waist, tailored, belted and pocketed, I like to believe they bring a certain effortless chic to an outfit. So it was with particular delight and notions of a certain Dries look that I recently uncovered these ones in a thrift shop.
Unfortunately my boyfriend doesn't appear to share the same trouser sentiment. Whilst I look in the mirror and conjure visions of long legged Chloe girls galloping down the runway in soft silk caramel, he takes a different view and judging by a recent observation I'm guessing his is more grandma with her slacks on than wholesome highlights from Hannah Macgibbon.
I'm afraid tailored trousers might belong within the same realm as many of Carrie Bradshaw's outfits do; venerated and emulated by women worldwide yet remain completely stupefying to your average male. On that note, I'm off to hunt for my latest vision, a nice pair of khaki high waisted ones, bet the boyf will love them.

I've been busy. Working, rummaging in thrift shops and of course planning New York. Most importantly I've been looking for somewhere to call home. Any suggestions for good areas? These photos from our last trip give me goosebumps of anticipation; I can't wait to see those dusty streets and ginkgo trees again.

It's fair to say my relationship with Australia hasn't always been a great love story. Australia and England might share the same tongue but past that cultural differences can be vast and idiosyncrasies viewed as characteristic through tourist eyes can become obtuse, awkward contentions when struggling to find familiarity. It's taken two years to feel as though I've found my feet; the essential building blocks such as meeting friends, knowing where a great coffee shop is and making connections in the industry have finally fallen into place.
I took a long walk today, and even though I can't wait for the New York adventure to begin, there was an ache of sadness when I considered what I will leave behind; great friends, arching blue skies and a country where if you look just a little, you will find creativity in bounds.

Inspired by the recent mixology from designers Dries Van Noten, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marni, I've developed a bit of a thing for print on print. The gorgeous juxtaposition of fabric and pattern in this Harpers Bazaar editorial alludes to a carefree throw-it-all on approach, yet the effect is perfect mix and match.
