I love a good trench coat. They have an uncanny power to make any outfit look insanely chic. Even when you are wearing your boyfriends grey V neck (see photo).
I picked this beauty up from an op shop for around 12 dollars. Its an investment that just keeps giving ;)
How do you style your trench coat? Have you got the balls to pull one off or not sure how?
Love to hear everyones opinion on this classic beauty.
I wore mine which a leopard print vintage shirt, grey cotton V neck, black leggings, black Docs, Rebel by Mac lippy, and a Chanel clutch.
Ta ta for now lovers!
Picked up this awesome fake Louis Vuitton at local opshop, noone needs to know where it came from though ;) Also found a classic read to keep me busy while I look for work! Takes a while for employers to get back to you here which is frustrating but had an interview for a 2IC position at a trendy wee surf shop today and I think it went well! Keep you posted :)
Wee tune to get you ready for the weekend!
Ray and I drove to the sea and watched the sunset on rocks next to the water. Such a magical light, hope everyone had a good weekend!
Ray and I ventured into the Adelaide city on a warm sunny day. Its takes about 45 minutes to drive in from where we live which is still a bit strange coming from a place where everything is 10 minutes away. The S.A art gallery was our first stop and it was incredible. Filled with glorious floor to ceiling grand old paintings and in equal amounts abstract and modern art. It was magnificant and inspiring and the culture was exactly what I needed.
Ray took these photos, im pretty lucky to have my own personal photographer, and what a gorgeous man he is ;) We are loving exploring the city together. Such an exciting fresh start to have together. Exactly what we needed.
Oh and leopard print, of course ;)
Today we drove to Glenelg which is about a 50 minute drive from where we live. Still a bit fresh outdoors but no where as bitter as the cold back in New Zealand. Just realised its our first Sunday together in 3 months… this calls for a #sundayfunday hashtag! I haven’t done a massive amount of shopping since ive been here, picked up an oversized black cardy in Glenelg to fight the chill. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and didn’t get up to too much mischief.
The other day we wandered through Norwood. A drive 30 minutes from where we are living. We checked out shops (and possible workplaces for me) and had Mexican for lunch (of course).
Adelaide is such a spread out city. Its literally 50 minutes into city central, so Ray is showing me around each wee bit at a time. Tonight is Saturday night and we are making the most of the flatmates being out by cooking a fresh stir fry together, watching movies, and being a wee bit coupley. Things you miss when you spend three months apart ;)
Today Dan (Rays best friend and our flatmate) Ray and I ventured into the city to check out the central markets that I have heard so much about. They didnt disappoint. The market was filled to the brim with colour and fragrance. There was exotic fruit and veges, cheese from France, chocolate from Italy, coffee from Vietnam and pretty much any fresh produce you could imagine. Ray and I want to do our weekly shop there from now on because everything was fresh, organic and cheap! Its a wee bit more chilly in Adelaide then I thought it would be, definitely didn’t prepare for it by bringing any sort of warm gear what so ever. . Just another excuse to shop I guess ;)
Sorry for the lack of posts, as you can imagine its been a crazy couple of days. Im in Adelaide Australia now! Ray met me at the airport with red roses and I cried. I couldnt help it I was so overwhelmed as well as being emotionaly drained by saying goodbye to my family back home. It was dark so we couldn’t see much but we drove to a wee seaside township called Glenelg and strolled down the beach and down the main road. The mainroad was lit with lantins and filled with wee juice bars, frozen yoghurt and icecream shops and wee boutiques. I felt like I was in a dream the air was so warm it was surreal and to be with Ray after all this time… magical. Still getting settled in and keeping an eye out for spiders. Will write soon, promise.
