I like the feathers, I said. Oh, you mean the cockade? said he.

A fancy word for a fanciful embellishment.

Cockade, says I?

I like it.

One of our first stops during our quick visit to Melbourne was a trip down Hosier Lane. No cars drive down this lane and over time it has become a gallery of some of the greatest street art you’ll ever see! I just love the mish-mash of colours and styles, practically every surface adorned by a garish signature or skilfully created visage. It’s one of our favourite spots we return to regularly as it’s never the same each time and always great fun to explore!

Runaway

I’m not really one to wear miniskirts but I completely fell for this gorgeous twirly number by American Apparel, so much so that I also got it in black! Poufy enough to look playful rather than skanky, a look I generally avoid. And the lilac colour goes surprisingly well against all those bright neon colours that are sweeping through stores this summer! Now this Karen Walker top arrived (oh how I love KW, have you noticed yet? She’s like my girlfriend)  and I instantly realised I was waaaaay too short for it (story of my life). Well, a quick roll up of the sleeves and nipping in of the waist – et voila!

How are you guys stylishly surviving the searing Perth heat?

The ‘ville

light-up-leedy1-4Wearing – American Apparel top, Sparkle & Fade skirt (similar), Clover backpack from Harry & Gretel, New Kid shoes via Modcloth, Robert Marc sunglasses (similar), Naomi Murrell resin and rose gold ring, Lazy Oaf cat ring (in gold)

American Apparel does some of the greatest basics. This top is perfectly cropped and fitted, perfect for a whole bunch of my high-waisted bottoms and right on midriff-baring trend (for when I finally find my six-pack). But anyhow, this outfit took me perfectly from day to slightly chilly night as we wandered through the stalls at the Light Up Leederville carnival.

If you look really closely you can see I sunburnt my nose! I don’t know about you, but sometimes as painful as they are, I often cherish my little sunburns as signs of a great weekend just passed. Rach said she was itching her mozzie bites fondly on their return to Perth! (And yes, I do not condone getting sunburnt and heartily endorse the whole slip-slop-slap thing, but I think I missed a patch on my nose!)

I’m absolutely digging the whole neo-90s look that’s sweeping the UK at present. I’m slightly obsessed with the crop-top-pencil-skirt silhouette, updated with new prints and colours. And can you blame me for adding neon into the mix? I bought this skirt from Urban Outfitters in London and it is oh. so. comfortable. The downside to comfort? No external holding in of the gut so I have to remind myself not to carb load just before wearing this one! But hey, who cares – I love it!cable-beach-herschel-1 cable-beach-herschel-2 cable-beach-herschel-3 cable-beach-herschel-4cable-beach-herschel-7 cable-beach-herschel-8 cable-beach-herschel-9cable-beach-herschel-11cable-beach-herschel-15cable-beach-herschel-18 cable-beach-herschel-19
