SEPTEMBER IN SANTORINI

IMG_1976

My time in Santorini was spent exactly how it should be, relaxing by the pool, sailing the sapphire water, exploring winding, cobbled pathways and eating too much Tzatziki.

Santorini was without doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Every photo I took could have been a postcard and as the sun set, each minute that passed was more glorious than the last.

Have a look below to see what I got up to!

Big Balloons

IMG_2398

After a very long flight and less than three hours sleep, I dragged myself out of my warm bed and into the freezing night.

I had heard about a place called Cappadocia in the middle of Turkey where before the day even begins, hundreds of colourful balloons float in the sky to give people the chance to see one of the most unique sunrises in the world.

Have a little look at what was one of the most special experiences of my life.

BON VOYAGE!

At 2.30 in the morning (If you could even call that morning) I’ll be dragging myself out of bed and into a taxi to the airport.
I decided it was time for a summer getaway and so for the next two weeks I’ll be exploring Greece, Turkey and Italy!

I will try and share some of my travels with you over the next fortnight,
but you can keep up with my adventures on Instagram!

Thanks to some very special readers, I was lucky enough to be chosen as a finalist in the Pedestrian Blogster Awards for 2014!
I was so excited to receive the nomination and it’s all thanks to you! 🙂

BASICALLY…

IMG_0798

I am one of those people who absolutely NEVER dress weather appropriately. Even when I know that its too chilly to not wear a coat, nine times out of ten I will decide to leave my coat behind. Even when its way too hot for sleeves, you’ll find me tucking a cute jumper into into some shorts. I tend to dress for the mood I am in that day rather than what would keep my body at the ideal temperature. I seem to have this ‘I’ll be fine’ mentality which usually results in me freezing or overheating. I just never learn!

Todays outfit was one that I donned on my weekend trip to Melbourne. Clearly I wasn’t feeling particularly colourful that day, so I left the colour palette quite grey-scale, with the only pop coming from my nails and lipstick.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans: American Apparel
Top: Zeitgeist
Coat: Minty Meets Munt
Boots: Topshop
Sunglasses: Bondi Markets
Lipstick: INOXA in ‘Tangerine’

This was the first time I wore this coat all Winter, and it was actually Spring!
I’m sure I’ll learn my lesson when I move to London though. I’m certain I’ll be needing a lot more than this little grey coat.
Look out for the walking sleeping bag, because that will be me.

Until next time!

Sunday Brunch

IMG_0745

Melbourne is well known for its amazing coffee and delicious food, so upon arrival I thought I should see what all the fuss is about whilst indulging in my one true love – Brunch!

We sat down for brunch on a Sunday in one my favourite city alleys called Degraves Street (see below). The tiny street is packed with homely and busting Cafes that all have such delicious looking food that it was hard to choose just one! Take a look for yourself!

Luckily, I had the rest of the day to shop around the city and walk all of this off!

Melbourne City Break

October in Sydney is coming to an end and you know what that means, four months of 30 degree summer days to look forward to!

I personally love the summer and wish it was warm all year round, but this year I wasn’t quite ready to end my love affair with jeans, coats, jackets and layers. I decided it was time for a little city break holiday to revisit and farewell winter, and where better to fly off to than Melbourne!

Melbourne is a busy little city full of cute cafes, boutique shopping and rooftop bars,
all of which happen to be three of my favourite things.

I will share some of my Melbourne adventures with you over the next week.
Until then, you can follow my Instagram to see what I got up to: kateskelly

OOTD: Weekend Pinafore

The first weekend of Spring brought Sydney an absolutely beautiful day full of sun and clear skies. It was an interning day for me so unfortunately I couldn’t spend my day frolicking on the beach, but I made the most of it with a delicious brunch in a balcony cafe and a walk around Glebe Markets.

What I’m Wearing?
White T-shirt – Nude Lucy $40
Pinafore – One off from a Korean clothing shop called Le Queen $175
Boots – Topshop $120
Ring – ATAT $50

  

Some girls have a thing for shoes, others have a thing for bags. Me? I have an obsession with weird and wonderful sunglasses. Sure these obstruct my vision a little bit, but these are my new favourites and they are worth it!

Much love,
Kate xx
