I think being a blonde I’m naturally drawn to neutral tones. This silvery/Pewter and white pant combo is one of my favourites, I literally feel I could go from work to lunch and then on to after work drinks wearing it. When I have the time I can also press the hems on these pants and then secret stitch them, that way they can be worn with lovely gold flats for that ‘chic lounge wear’ look. Usually the only accessory I need to accompany the outfit is a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in hand.
I've never been a "go out get loose" kind of girl. So over crowded places and excessively drunk people mixed with hot sweaty dance moves and over priced drinks never really goes down as a good night for me. Don't get me wrong, I love going out and I declare any weekend sitting at home doing nothing and not out and about, to be a boring one. I just like chilling where I can actually hear what my friends have to say, and I can make it to the bar with out someone party boying me or where they are playing music I can sing along to enthusiastically, instead of just bopping my head too. I was rather excited at the prospect of attending the launch of Brisbane's latest little hub "Our Place" where the feeling is warming and homely and the idea is to sit around and chill like you would at home with friends and loved ones. The quirky touches make the difference, such as the make shift clothes line strung from the ceiling and the blend of rustic and vintage furniture that reminds of the same lounges you have previously spent time on when visiting your Nana. What really appealed though was the amazing band playing down stairs (may or may not have had a little jig with some friends to an acoustic version of Justin Timberlake) and the endless selection of ciders (lets face it - the latest craze since the widespread of Rekorderlig) and craft beers. These sort of places just make me so happy, and last Thursday nights opening was (safe to say) a great success.
P.S They were also playing Pulp Fiction and Billy Madison.. so awesome.
Having always lived approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Byron Bay, I have never had a reasonable excuse for not going. I've heard people bang on about how great it is, so I figured it was about time I did something about been one of the only people amongst my friends and colleagues who had never been. Without much planning I booked what I could find and we headed down South for a little weekend getaway. Minus the unbelievable amounts of young teens and oddly smelling backpackers, I rather enjoyed the whole experience. By far some of the best beaches I have ever seen (and that's a big deal coming from what is considered the sunshine state) and some amazing scenery to go with them. There is nothing better then when the trees meet the water. Some exceptional dinning and food options, just to name one in particular, The Balcony Bar & Dinning is now going on my top 20 list of places I have dined in Australia and is a must do in Byron (there is a reason why it's booked out on Saturday nights). So if you are like me and have never bothered to venture as far as the QLD boarders, or you from far away lands looking for the true Australian experience. Make sure you put Byron Bay on your list of things to-do. We were very happy campers to say the least.

I've been the lady in red this week, infact I've really noticed an influx of the colour into my cupboards lately (I am kind of obssesed). They all hang together beautifully as I've always been a fan of grouping colours and then putting them in transitional order from dark to light ( OCD habits). This beautiful Wish Hoxie One Shoulder Dress, pairs perfectly with my Topshop kimino. This combinations makes me feel like a modern day China doll.
