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!

It’s okay to wear a splash of colour to work! It’s nice to get out of the habit of wearing all black, particularly now that the sun is shining and the days are getting longer. And once again it’s super-cheap-ASOS-trousers to the rescue! They fit perfectly and fulfil all my workwear criteria (read all about them here), namely style, comfort and mobility all in one. Particularly when paired with these boyish loafers, I’m all set for a day at work with the kiddies!

When I arrived back in Perth over Easter, lo and behold there were a couple of little packages awaiting for me to unwrap thanks to my ever thoughtful Jinn. And somehow they were also amazingly colour-coordinated! After hearing how I’d sunburnt my scalp during a fishing trip he went and picked out this crazy cool, Fresh Prince inspired cap from Urban Outfitters. I then opened the parcel that contained my long-awaited pink Kanken Mini to find that they were instant fashion-BFFs.
They instantly jazzed up my super comfy plane outfit that consisted of my latest favourite Karen Walker tee and ever present coloured skinny jeans. I don’t know about you but no matter how long or short a flight, I must travel in extreme comfort – no waist bands that cut in or itchy materials for me! Stretchy cotton all the way!

If you read yesterday’s post you would know that I wasn’t exactly feeling at the top of my fashion A-game over the weekend which meant I was looking for something uber-easy and uber-comfortable to wear (read loose-fitting dress, no constant sucking in of abs [what abs?] required, minimal accessories). So out comes the ever-faithful-never-out-of-fashion denim dress. Another thing to know is when I’m tired I tend to lose part of my brain that tells me that things I want to do are a bad idea (like, “no, you don’t actually want to buy that neon green lace polka dotted scallop edged puffer jacket!) – hence the bow tie! I don’t know about you – but I like it! (Lol…loser… :P) To be honest, I love bow ties and this won’t be the last time you see one on me…(I bought an awesome one for Jinn from the Brooklyn Flea but actually it was one of those covert actually-for-me presents…What? You know you do it too!)
***What I’m wearing – vintage denim dress (ooh, I think I like this one…Bahaha, sorry Lanvin but not this one), bow tie by Urban Renewal via Urban Outfitters (try this continental style one), black patent loafers by Steve Madden
