Easy Like Sunday Morning

Just how Sunday mornings should be, EASY! Today waking up as early as possible to go on a morning stroll on the streets, or should I say hills, of Paddington. An easy day requires a super relaxed outfit of course, comfortable, simple and unique all rolled into one with this Museum two-piece. Back to Paddington - what a beautiful suburb to just wander with many many wowing sights, ever so fitting for my 'walls around the world' pics. Something silly that I love to do - find beautiful walls around the world and one place that I must say is full of them is Paddington. Having my favourite flowers in my hand and general beaming with happiness on this sunny Sunday morning, starting the week of in the best way.

Wearing: Two Piece - Museum, Slim Converse, SinanDidi tote (a very special wedding memoir)

Hunter Valley Gardens

Stepping into a fairytale? My kind of day and exactly what you get when entering the perfectly presented Hunter Valley gardens. Spending the day wandering from garden to garden enjoying each and every theme. With the giant chair in Storybook land being a personal favourite followed by the charm of the Oriental gardens. My outfit today, finished off nicely with a dream catcher necklace (for the bohemian in me), is also from Museum which really did fit the styling for this trip oh so very well. 

Wearing: Top, Leather Skirt and Bag - all Museum, Jeffrey Campbell Boots - Apex, Valley Eyewear Shades.

Never Ending Green

Exchanging the usual never ending blue for fields of green on my recent trip to Pokolbin. The field featured above completely caught my attention. There was just something about that field so I thought only right to shoot there. I think it's safe to say the wardrobe for this trip was totally themed to the country surroundings. This playsuit is from Museum, a favourite of mine in Sydney and a store which catered the style needs of this trip just perfectly.

Get-a-way - Hunter Valley

Like I've said before I believe it's extremely important to treat yourself to a monthly getaway. Unfortunately I didn't manage one in March and it really did reflect on my mood. So April I'm doubling up, starting with the gorgeously green sights of Pokolbin, Hunter Valley. Akubra hats at the ready! I think this photo diary best shows what these Wineries can really do to you and how much fun you can have, as apposed to the perfectly picturesque sights I would usually post. Our first stop McGuigan's completely had us covered, feeding us with the finest cheese from the onsite shop whilst we enjoyed our wine. Perfect views, flowing wine and delicious food all topped off with the best company. Yep, I think this place did just the job in bringing back such a good level of energy and it's only 3 hours out of Sydney!!

Wear me, White - Sydney

So I thought it would be fun to set myself a little project based on my love for dressing in white. How much white can one really wear? So my next few outfits will be made up primarily of white to see how versatile you can really be with such a simple colour. So here is outfit number one, we had to start with a good one didn't we?! This top named 'Charlottes Web' purchased at one of my favourite Bondi stores 'Museum'. A store with my perfect colour palette. Neutral. 

Also taking an insight into my new Sydney life which I am yet to write about. Seeing what I now do with myself after giving up being a professional globe trotter and what exactly I gave it up for. On this occasion, a Tuesday evening, it was a cliff side walk stopping off on a bench to eat (in true British style) Fish and Chips. Unhealthy night of the week, check! Admiring the broken sky along with the crashing waves has to be one of the simplest things to do with the most benefits. Bondi life, you got it! 

Wearing: Webbed top - Museum, Windsor Smith Sandals - General Pants. 

Take two - An old favourite with a twist. Back to front is always a good option to try (unless its backless, maybe even then, who knows?) My good old faithful Urban Outfitters kimono worn as an cover up with nearly everything!  Today I went for a different option, back to front. I must say I am pretty impressed with the amount of looks I've gained from this one Kimono.

This day was slightly more adventures.. Spending the afternoon hanging about the harbour and the evening opening my eyes to what Coogee has to offer. I swear there is magic in the air around the Opera House, the atmosphere there is the best. A go to place for me that will always bring a smile to my face and remind me when I moved here (if I ever need reminding that is). 

Wearing: Back to Front Kimono - Urban Outfitters, Windsor Smith Sandals, Valley Eyewear shades.

Super simple today as I run regular errands. Washed out denim keeping it beach ready whilst mixing it up to the regular look I usually go for. Super simple description to go with the easy day. What I like best - Simplicity. Expect nothing, appreciate everything.

Wearing: Topshop White Washed Overalls, Slim Converse in White (obviously)

We all have a favourite dress don't we. Well this is mine, it has been featured on here before when adventuring in Washington D.C. back in summer 14 and it is still one of my favourites. It must be the simplicity. Clean, high-low simple white tee dress. 

Just another day wondering the cliff tops of Bondi. This time more to the North side (another favourite) where there is much more of a drop. Careful, not too close to the edge. 

Wearing: Truly Madly Deeply white tee dress - Urban Outfitters, New fav sandals - General Pants

Pretty dresses in pretty places. You simply cannot go wrong with a pretty white dress, frills adding just that little extra. My latest Arnhem purchase worn to one of the most beautiful spots in Sydney - Gordon's Bay. I have wrote about this natural beauty before when dreaming of Sydney, now it's just a picturesque 5k walk away from my house. Winning.  When needing a pitt stop from a run one morning I struck gold. The most perfect hidden spot overlooking the whole of the bay conveniently set up with a large washed out bench. To the person who made up this area - Thank you! 

Wearing: Arnhem dress - Arnhem Clothing, Valley Eyewear Shades.

Next up; 90's baby.. Cutting it by just 24 days. Thanks Mum. Another oldie of my wardrobe that just hasn't worn off, this 90's Minkpink printed tee. Being introduced to yet another of Sydney's hot spots - Paddington Reservoir Gardens. What a quirky little hang out they are.

Wearing: Minkpink tee - Urban Outfitters, Jeffrey Campbell boots - Apex shoes.

Okay 6 outfits in and even though I have many more white outfits up my sleeve I'm ready for a different colour. White is definitely a colour to be worn in the sunshine (most of my white attire is anyhow) and unfortunately the weather on the 7th day turned extremely grey, sad face. This has also taught me of how I like my outfit to match my mood, which may not necessarily be screaming out for white. However, white is and always will be my favourite colour to wear. Just like summer is my favourite season!
