Admittedly I’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones because all I really want to drape over my shoulders are IKEA fur rugs. Of course a real jacket is always the better option, and when you’re headed to see the pines, what better way to be overdressed than with some ra-ra fringed pants inspired by the wildlings slash white walkers?

And if you’re hoping to visit the Wanneroo Pines, simply map out coordinates -31.726428, 115.787026 that should take you on a half hour drive from Perth. Just be careful of falling branches and respect the area! In other news, red hill quarry is now a highly hazardous space so please steer clear.

cosmic lace

Finally back down under and all I can say is that winter is as welcoming as I have always remembered it to be. Sure, it rained upon arrival and for the next couple of days but the skies cleared and we were blessed with a sunny weekend where I could put the straw hat to good use and take my favourite new For Love & Lemons cosmic tiered lace dress for a spin. We headed down south and of course the trip was a fruitful one (any trip spent with the family is always close to my heart) for we found this orchard that was bare but still beautiful. The place also reminded me a lot of Christmas and made me feel fuzzy inside.

Truthfully I didn’t realise how much I missed Perth until I was back in my room making snow angels on the fur rugs that sit next to my bed, only to have my brother barge in and raise an eyebrow. I know it is a great privilege to be hopping on and off a plane every now and then, and chasing the sunsets in every country I visit, but there is nothing quite like having your parents kiss you goodnight every evening instead of sending emoji replies to a group chat two thousand miles away. 
I will be off again in a few days only to return many months later, so for now I will embrace the present and feel grateful. Oh how nice it is to be back…


sinatra blue

A statement coat should be one to ruffle your feathers – or anyone else’s, for that matter. As I floated down the busy streets of Perth city, I half expected someone to spit on my jacket and make a run for it, and I also thought a giant dove might come swooping down, but none of that happened. What did happen though, was when I wore this feather jacket to the casino later that evening and security (who ID’ed me) gushed about how great I looked. Of course I thanked him and before I left he told me, “Oh, really that coat is just incredible. Amazing.” And he’s right, it’s so lovely that I did indeed wear it out the same day it arrived in the mail.

An easy breezy feather jacket can be tossed on over an oversized tee or denim for the sort of easy chic we are constantly seeking. It’s even so lightweight you could probably fit eight of these into a check-in luggage and still manage to fit everything else in. I love that feathers inject as much texture into an outfit as faux fur does. The result is fuss-free, understated and completely effortless.
