It's school holidays!! That means a couple of weeks off from teaching, that means sleep-ins, that means getting to catch up with fam & friends. School holidays is happiness. Not that I dislike my job, in fact I love it. But, as one of my Year 9 students so eloquently put it, "Miss, now you won't have to see your annoying students for two weeks!!" HAHA. Here I am just monkeying around in a lumberjack-inspired casual outfit for first weekend of school hols.

Country Road check wrap shirt
One Teaspoon Awesome Baggies boyfriend jeans
Windsor Smith cut out boots

Seriously, I love my OT baggies so so much, I have them in this dark navy and also in a lighter blue. The obssession continues!! I think I'm gonna be living in my boyfriend jeans and baggy shirts, it's the perfect trans-seasonal weather for holey jeans :P

Happy weekend/school holis!

This was the show I bought tickets to with some girlfriends - I didn't realise that my media pass was a VIP seat and only realised when we went to get our free champagne and it was "VIP only, sorry". Haha! It was a really fun experience to go with a different bunch of friends than last time, even though we weren't in the greatest seating position.

Recap and some of my fave looks of the night, which centred on Street Wear in Melbourne -

BĂșl was everything draping which was both elegant and laid-back. Perfect for a Melbourne girl who doesn't want to wear booty shorts and a crop top (hehe). There were monochromatic tones and neutrals punctuated with a deep mustard yellow and gorgeous navy and eggshell blue.

Gorman I was really looking forward to - a lot of the looks had already dropped in store though so it wasn't that 'new' as such, but they did have some great prints floating around and I love that little cropped denim. Many classic pieces I can totally see hanging in my wardrobe :P

Kuwaii has modern chic covered with sleek, clean silhouettes and cuts and a gorgeous palette of blues and whites, perfect cruise feel. I love the inky stripey pattern, we all love a breton stripe but it's fun to see them recreated slightly differently!

Leonard Street seriously has my heart and is one of my favourite shops in Melbourne! Not my fave collection but I still loved it! Lots of prints, lots of super funky 90s layering (skirt over skirt anyone?) and as weird as it sounds, it was genius! I'm thinking I should try the double skirt thing just for kicks :D

Limedrop of course had their trademark funky as cherrywood and reflective sunglasses, really must get a pair. Lots of crazy prism/triangular prints in gorgeous jewel tones and dat jacket! It actually has stones sewn on to it. So dreamy.

Tettmann.Doust - hmmm I still remember when they were an emerging brand and made the coolest printed leggings. They're still here, plus a lot more goodness in the form of watercolour style prints that look like art-work and again, draping (seems to be a trend happening here hm). Gorgeous collection.

Hope you enjoyed my little recap and fave looks - looking forward to seeing some of that edgy cool street wear vibe creeping back into Melbourne's street style. Oh Melbourne, you so fine.

Runway 3 on Thursday the 4th of September was utterly captivating, free spirited, vibrant and delicately detailed. It was all about embellishments and a bunch of talented designers, along with a handful of live musicians, transported me to a gorgeous landscape of colour, texture and life.

Here is my breakdown of the trends and some of my favourite looks of the night.

Yeojin Bae was filled with sleek and chic block colours, a mixture of pastels and brighter hues mixed with black. This collection featured strong geometric straps and cut-outs, and clean silhouettes and lines.

Thurley was probably the most impressive showing of the night, for me at least. A plethora of dreamy white gowns with splits, sheer accents and long flowing lace paraded down the runway before evolving into fierce, metallic and warrior-like pieces. There was extravagant embellishment, structural beauty and lots of volume and character throughout.

Jayson Brundson had an array of details on the catwalk, with a strong colour palette, sparkles and structure being key features of his collection. Sparkly mini-skirts, satin dresses and delicate embroidery all featured amongst a metallic rainbow of colours.

Arthur Galan's women's collection featured leather accents, geometric animal print, bold colour and strong shapes. The men's was a mixture of black and khaki colours, with some pastel pieces and a tropical print, perfect for the warmer months.

Megan Park was all about the flirty florals for Spring in various shades of pinks, blues and yellows. There was also a splash of more sophisticated monochrome/metallics.

Nicola Finetti = Bold. Structural. Strong. Architectural. Bright. Digital prints in purples and yellows and pinks then a monochromatic theme. Crops, cross-overs and splits done beautifully.

Nevenka went super boho with frothy white offerings in lace, crochet, embroidery and volume. Layering and sheer material with small details made for some delicate and beautiful silhouettes.

Hope you enjoyed the images! I didn't get very good snaps of Runway 4 as I was sitting further up back with my friends, but hopefully a small post to come!
