Hello , I hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter break .
Just before Easter John and I took a drive out to the town of Deloraine to view the Autumn colours and enjoy lunch at a local hotel restaurant. Things didn’t go quite as planned , the restaurant was closed and the colours well not as colourful as usual. The shot above was cheekily snapped on our way home in the drive of a farming property. We did end up having lunch at a local cafe , which was OK . Lesson learnt always check opening hours.
The day was fine with an Autumn chill in the air so playing with trans-seasonal layers was in order.
I started with the coral linen mix coat from Sinequanone that I wore to my nephews wedding about ten years ago. I styled the coat over a white shirt , vest and old favourite Moyuru pants.
I accessorised with a Crochetta trilby , a resin cream and black necklace , vintage clip on earrings, Preen sunnies and white Preston Zly shoes.
I stumbled across the vest at a pop up recycle shop here last year and even though it was a little snug at the time I loved its tailoring and rather unique bird print. The label is Giuseppe Collection and is made in the U.S.A. . I can only imagine it was purchased by someone in the US but never really worn as it was as new with labels.
Over the Easter break John and I had a day trip down to Hobart to visit family . We may have had a quick into the city where I did a spot of shopping. I found a couple of treasures at Bruce, a recycle clothing store and the orange and black tights I am wearing here .
The tights were the starting point for my Easter Monday outfit . Wearing my much loved Moyuru skirt, mesh top worn under Sarah Paccinni knit , black and orange bangles, orange leather gloves , burnt orange beads paired with an orange and silver necklace , Fendi sunnies and Trippen shoes.
This was the first outing for the season of my Felt Happiness orange beret. I just love this clever and quirky handmade hat and know that I will wear it often over Winter.
