I'm not sure what it is with my obsession with blue lately - it's the second time in a week I've worn an outfit in shades of blue. Perhaps I'm always opting for it because it's the closest I can get to black? (Never fear, I'm slowly making my way up the colour wheel. My next post features a coral blazer!)
These printed pants are my contribution to the pajama trend. I love the nautical style print (I think they look like tiny buoys) and the loose, yet tapered fit. Perfect for the current pajama climate yet subtle enough to wear once the trend has subsided. Certainly a change from my usual skinny jeans everyday. As for the Dion Lee top, I couldn't go past its unique shoulder detail and collar (certainly a good way to hide my broad shoulders). Dion is truly knows his way around impeccable tailoring, geometric construction and contemporary cuts.
I purchased the Zara pieces in Malaysia and Japan (you won't believe how much better they have it than us Aussies) - you'd be hard pressed to find something this good in the Sydney store. Time and time again I've been to Zara on Pitt St, hoping to find that 'item of clothing' I saw on an American/ Swedish blogger and it has been nothing but a letdown. I know we're in a totally different season to the Northern hemisphere but that doesn't mean you have to treat Australia like the Zara outlet store! I would feel slightly better if they had an online store that offered shipping here. Anyone else feel like they've been cheated? I sure hope Topshop won't follow in their footsteps.
