I’ve mentioned this before but over the last few months I’ve been going through a style crisis of sorts. It’s more than just opening my wardrobe and every now and then crying the common “I’ve got nothing to wear!” – it’s the fact that day in, day out, 90% of my clothes no longer represent who I am. It’s not great, but the news is that I think I’m finally starting to figure out the kind of style I am now striving for.
One of my biggest fashion dilemmas is keeping things casual. It’s not something I do really well, ’cause I always seem to end up dressing up a little more than needed. For instance, take that time last year when my mum decided to celebrate her birthday at Chandon, a winery less than an hour away from Melbourne. The best laid-back look I could come up with involved a peplum top with beaded Peter Pan collar that was once featured on “The Carrie Diaries” TV series. Seriously.
Last week I went on a trip with my family to spend a few days away in Phillip Island. A little over an hour from Melbourne, it is a very popular tourist spot in Victoria, but I had never been there before. Even though (or should I say especially because?) it was cold, I had an awesome time and really recommend going there for a few days if you can. Seeing the penguins come out of the ocean at night, bringing food for their babies, was probably the highlight of my week there. So adorable!
I can’t believe I ended up forgetting to blog about my Christmas outfit, especially because it took me forever to decide what to wear. I went a little crazy with the whole “early Christmas gift to myself” thing and had about four different looks planned out for the festivities. Sadly, I didn’t have four Christmas parties to attend, so I had to pick one.
