One of my absolute favourite cold weather colours is mustard. I just love the way it works so well with other earthy tones as well as a great red lipstick. I’d been dying to wear this cute little Sessun number since I bought it in New York last year! I waited and waited through the Australian spring and summer only to find out that work was sending me to the Kimberley for six months, the land of eternal summers! There went all my dreams of styling my 50kg of NYC-acquired clothing…Yeah, first world problems, I know! So I jumped at the chance to bring some of it halfway across the globe to France with us on our recent holiday. 🙂
These amazing suede tassel earrings were handmade by none other than my super-talented sis-in-law Rachel from Freckle & co. Be sure to take a look at her other equally pretty creations on her Etsy site, the perfect destination to find that special and unique gift!

The French people have seriously got the whole “aesthetically pleasing” thing down pat. Take this incredible Tuileries Garden which is so perfectly symmetrical that it’s hard to believe that these are trees and not some manmade structure! We wandered here after spending an amazing day at Musee d’Orsay which houses a vast collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist art (the largest in the world in fact!) including paintings by Monet, Cezanne, Degas and Van Gogh just to namedrop a few.
I absolutely had to have this Chanel-esque boucle jacket. I had so much fun shopping at Comptoir des Cotonniers where I found it! The shopping attendant was so amazing, if I even simply lingered on a piece of clothing for a moment, I’d turn around to find he’d already put it in the change room for me – and in the correct size! Impressive!
