Not My Travel Outfit

Hello from New South Wales! The boyfriend and I have jetted off across the country for a week of birthday celebrations in sunny Sydney. I haven’t spent much time in Sydney so I’m excited to explore and relax (with lots of eating, shopping and drinking thrown in the middle). In the grand tradition of this blog I was going to share with you my ‘travel outfit’ (i.e what I wore on the plane) but it’s exactly the same as this outfit from a few weeks ago (plus my cons) so I’ll give you another outfit instead…

This amazing vintage peasant blouse is one of the pieces my gorgeous neighbour Gerry gave me. She dropped off a huge bag of vintage clothing and costume jewellery for me to rummage through last week, I seriously lucked out and scored so many awesome things. Gerry is a true stylista (she worked for Dior and Fendi!) and has the most amazing wardrobe, so I felt pretty spoilt to receive a few bits and pieces from it.

I could easily go ‘full peasant’ with this blouse, and I probably will at some stage, but for now I think basic black leather and some espadrilles stop this top from looking too costume-y. What do you think?

Top: Vintage, gift (thanks Gerry!!)
Skirt: Vintage, from Paris
Shoes: eBay
Bag: Op Shop
Bracelets: Op Shop
Necklace: gift


  1. This is such a beautiful top. I love the contrast of the soft peasant style with the leather skirt :) Looks fab!
    Hope you're having an amazing time in Sydney!
