I am finally in Melbourne after a ridiculously long (12 hour) drive, which I did all by myself yesterday! 

After leaving at 5am I had my first rest break in a random field at sunrise for outfit photos... but more of that tomorrow.
 It is so nice to be back in Melbourne, this city has a kind of quaint and antiquated charm that I miss whenever I go home to Sydney. For instance, my family's new abode is a renovated old Bulla Cream factory, just a ten minute drive from the CBD, which is right on the horse drawn cart route. The last thing I heard last night, and the first thing I heard this morning, was the clip-clop of hooves on the cobblestones. Although the weather isn't abominable (it isn't pouring with rain- well not at the moment at least) it's still freezing cold and copious layering is a necessity, but hopefully I will be able to take some good outfit posts none-the-less.  
For now, here is my outfit from the other day, kindly photographed by Ben before I left. I bought this insight51 shirt online from General pants last week. It's a new favourite of mine and keeps my predominately black winter wardrobe in check, but I guess since i'm in Melbourne this week, I have a pretty good excuse to don the all-black uniform and to do away with colour entirely. 


  1. Yeah that is a great print for basics :) looking so pretty abd I like the second picture. I think you & Ven make your own regular fashion editorials haha you are just too good!


  2. Cannot believe you look this gorgeous while driving! I always just wear comfy clothes, and end up unbuttoning them hahaha.

    Such a fantastic shirt - simplle, but very elegant. Love the French vibe of it. & beyond jealous of those leatherette pants. They look amazing on you, and I bet they go perfectly with everything! Definitely need a pair of those.

    Is Melbourne an all-black wearing place? Funny - I never picture it like that.

    Great outfit - gorgeous photos. Ben must love being your go-to photog : )


    1. oops. Just realized your outfit post from driving is tomorrow! You look gorgeous nonetheless, obviously.

      Can't wait to see how you drive in style.


    2. Haha, lets blame it on my confusing and convoluted writing style!
