Breathe in people, do you smell that? That’s the peak hour buses starting their regular timetable again, It’s the exhaust fumes from the cars that have been exploring coastal freeways instead of city bridges, and tunnels, it’s the cologne and perfume of people hustling and bustling their way back to work for the year. And it smells horrible.
Well while a lot of you have dusted off your suits, jeans, dresses… or whatever it is you wear to work, i’ve already been back for a week, and 2 days (yes I went back to work on the 2nd of January). What better way to throw myself into the year, than working like a pack horse, to get the first 3 months of SS15 designed and put into work before the whole of China closes for Chinese New Year.
Working long days, not getting home till very much past the latest of late dinner times has resulted in extremely low to null activity online and extremely high to unhealthy levels of late night carb intake, not to mention the predicted fall out from holiday feasting.
Fear not, there’s nothing a baggy playsuit can’t hide…
…queue segway into next blog post.
But first, here’s to a happy, healthy and productive 2015.
Wild Ones Gown by Spell & The Gypsy Collective
Christmas in Australia can be an uncomfortable time. It’s hot, humid and at all times, you’re usually at some level of full.
This year I was determined to be temperate and comfortable, while still trying to maintain some semblance of femininity. In my mind, there was only one option. The go-to piece of clothing that can take you from picnic to party, from sandy beaches to fancy dinners. The maxi dress.
This dress from Spell & The Gypsy Collective ticked all the boxes. Who better to trust, to combat the summer heat than a local label based in Byron Bay? It was floaty and breezy with an elastic waist that accommodated all of my indulgences for the day.
Extra points for making me feel like a forest fairy in my Christmas day surroundings.
