Yes, it was winter in Australia when I was visiting. And yes, I still insisted on going to the beach. St. Kilda Beach was one of the “must-sees” in my Melbourne travel guide (I’m such a tourist it hurts), so one morning my brother and I took the tram thirty minutes to the seaside to see what all the hype was about. I knew I would be wandering around the beach town instead of laying in a bikini desperate for the slightest bit of color so, I thought this look was perfect for the occasion. I wore a navy and white checkered baby doll tank and bright mustardy-yellow cross-body for a beachy feel. Then I remembered it was below 60 degrees (lol) and I would probably freeze my butt off, so I added on a tan suede jacket which went well with the tank. Lastly, I incorporated statement sunnies to make the outfit a little more unique and my-style.

The past few weeks have been completely crazy, and I have 100% been slacking on my posts. This has seriously been stressing me out and I have been feeling really guilty, so don’t worry I promise I’m back! After Abu Dhabi I spent two-three weeks in Australia, based in Melbourne (where my brother is studying). I spent one full week in Melbourne and then my brother and I ventured off into the unknown where we found ourselves cuddling with Koalas in the rainforest and swimming with sea turtles in the Great Barrier Reef. It was honestly one of the funnest, “yoloist” and most memorable three weeks of my life. I was hoping to leave with a new Australian accent, but instead I left with incredible memories and many new furry Kanga and Koala friends (satisfied!).
My first week in Melbourne was great, because I got to know the city really well. As it’s not that hard to get around and my brother was busy with classes that week, I spent most of my time wandering and exploring on my own. The weather was kind of (actually very) confusing- it’s currently winter there, but winter to them is like September/October/mid 60’s weather. WTF?! Packing was the most stressful thing ever- do I bring my winter jackets or do I not? And shoes? I had no idea. Here is one look I wore on one of the first days- it was so cold (and I was unprepared), so had to run to Topshop to buy this grey coat (not complaining about it, though).
This outfit reminded my of the Jacquemus Pre-Fall 2015 runway show. A ‘60s vibe combine with back-to-school uniform to sum it up. The effortlessness, symmetrical proportion, and simple hues are very similar to the pieces that make up this collection. Hope ya like it!
