My Style Diary - Black, Grey and a Little Bit of Tie-Dye


Hello Hello!

Gosh it feels like ages since I've sat down to write a post! Life has been rather exciting lately and I just haven't had time to blog (well, the lack of blogging is also partly due to boring things... like having to write job applications... ugh... but let's focus on the fun bits)

The weekend before last, Tom and I took a little trip to Melbourne and spent four lovely days exploring the city. I hadn't been there since I was about 10 years old, so it was a great little adventure and felt awesome to just get away for a few days. Once I sort through all my photos there will definitely be a Melbourne post up, but for today I have an outfit to share with you.

These photos are from our last day in Melbourne. We spent the morning at the Queen Victoria Markets before catching a train to Lygon Street and visiting Brunetti's, and then just strolling around some pretty residential streets. We did so much walking over those four days - it really is the best way to explore a place. 

With all the walking we were doing, I obviously kept the footwear very comfortable and my cons got a good work out. It was also chilly enough to pull out this beanie which hasn't been getting much use in Perth yet (it was a beautiful sunny 25 degrees today... definitely not beanie weather!)
A neutral colour palette is always best when travelling so I stuck with my failsafe black jeans and jacket, adding a little bit of fun with this scarf. I love that it's pretty neutral, but also adds some interest with the cool tie-dye pattern.
A cross body bag is another holiday necessity and my usual black Jigsaw bag did the trick. I'm a little disappointed with this bag though because I've only had it for around two years and at the airport on the way home both straps broke! They'd been looking a little worn but I wasn't expecting the stitching to completely give way as it did... luckily it held out until we were heading home!

Anyway, I hope you've been having a fabulous Thursday! :)
What are your holiday outfit essentials?

Lots of Love
