To continue my birthday celebrations and play host to my international fashion loving guest, I jetted off to Sydney for the weekend for a lavish weekend of good food and company.
We were absolutely spoilt with sunshine which only lifted our spirits and made our drinks by the Harbour, overlooking the Sydney Opera House that much more enjoyable.
That night after filling ourselves up on Nachos and Burgers (it’s a must right?!) we watched the sun go down from our Apartment overlooking the Quay and were even blessed with a firework display.
A few friends joined us and we headed to The Loft @ Bungalow 8 which was amazing, the drinks, the food and of course the company could not be better!
For this occasion, I needed a new outfit and had a ‘Suit’ look in mind, picked out mentally and when I headed to the boutique, it was sold out. Damn. Sometimes fate works in our favour, and our misfortunes turn out to be exactly what we needed.
I ended up getting a bright pink knit which I will get so much use for, teamed with a pink/red floral skirt with my classic go-to black heels, Michael Kors swing bag and a bright lip!
This has soon become one of my favourite outfits that I cannot wait for the occasion to bring out again, and of course mix and match with existing items.
On Sunday, after breakfast we went on a Harbour tour where Sydney put on a show. If you have been to Sydney and never done a harbour cruise, you need to!
For this day of activities and running around the city and as the weather was cooling down a tad, I teamed my tartan pants, with a black printed tee and black boots, making me feel very ‘rock ‘n’ roll’.
Before I knew it, it was time to go home. I always love my Sydney trips, most of the time I don’t actually explore the city, so playing tourist was a fun added bonus and has only opened my sights up to more things to see and do next time I am in Sydney.
As it is now September, my birthday month is well and truly over for another year, or maybe years, my bank account needs a little rest!
Until next time, upcoming is Fashion MONTHS, stay tuned!
