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! 🙂

Until next time!

Delightfully Snug

Today I bring you a short little post featuring this extremely warm, down jacket from Style Nanda.

Every single time I wear this coat I receive so many comments. Most of which sound something along the lines of – “Oh my gosh, you are so puffy!” or “That is the biggest jacket I’ve ever seen.”

Yes it’s true that when I wear this jacket I feel exceptionally puffy, but I also feel delightfully snug!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Coat – StyleNanda

Jumper – Zara

Jeans – Rollas

Boots – The Iconic

The Winter ’14 collection celebrates the best of 90’s grunge with luscious, groupie inspired fur vests and coats, skinny denims in a gritty colour palette of biker blacks, stonewash greys and inky blue, and basics to compliment it all.

Garments range from just $39.95 for basics and up to $119.95 for jeans and jackets. I know for sure that my groupie vest will be keeping me warm all winter, so get with it and come back to the 90’s with me!

YVES SAINT CAMEO

IMG_1411

Today’s outfit features this amazing skirt by the Australian label Cameo. I absolutely love the flattering shape that the heavy fabric creates and the monochromatic floral detailing. It’s a very versatile piece that would suit all seasons, and can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.

I spent my day having brunch in the gorgeous suburb of Bronte in Sydney’s East, so I opted for a more casual look by pairing this skirt with a YSL logo T-shirt.

WHAT I’M WEARING
Tshirt – Etsy
Skirt – Cameo
Shoes – Wanted
Bag – Kate Spade
Sunglasses – Asos
