I love it when you get inspired by something, a look, an old photograph, a weekend up the coast, a scene in a film, feelings and emotions that you try to encapsulate into an outfit. You’ve already blown your budget for the month and can’t afford anything new, but you still manage to make the most of your old clothes. Sometime our creativity blossom under a little restriction.

It is way too late and the sensible me is telling me to go to bed because I got work tomorrow, but alas the other half has gotten the better of me. My giant back log of posts from Melbourne doesn’t help either, so many great looks to share with you, so little time.

This week, Sydney’s going through some sort of a mini heat wave which has sent me scrambling to put my jackets back on the rack and digging for my summer clothes again. Averaging at 25, 26 degrees during the day, this is definitely feeling like the last of summer. Hmmph, I was enjoying the cooler weather and looking forward to unleashing the jackets and coats I acquired in New York, but autumn is making me wait. It’s alright, I suppose I can wait a little, just a little.

I love light summery looks, they remind me of the beachside, of road trips, of carefree long summer holidays. The salty ocean air that I love, a paper parcel of fish and chips, a bottle (preferably glass) of super chilled coke (never diet coke, never!). Mmmm, the things that puts a smile on my face.

A light dress, an oversized shirt, that is summer. Simple, stunning, Australian summer fashion. Relaxed, not self conscious yet so so pretty. Guess what! I found the perfect examples in Melbourne.

The weatherman says 25 degrees and sunny tomorrow. Now what do I wear??!!! Dress? Skirt? Oversized shirt perhaps?

The French don’t wear much patterns, certainly not much loud colourful patterns, but when they do wear it, they wear it well.

The only pattern I got in my backpack right now is a blue checkered flannel shirt from Uniqlo… hmm… not quite on par with these lovely ladies, but if you have some great pattern tucked in your wardrobe, time to get it out and wear it!

I am back! Well, somewhat, I am still traveling, constantly on the road, so internet is hard to come by, but at least I’ve started to style hunt again.

A little recap, I’ve just spent the last month in France, the first 2 weeks on an organic farm with no electricity and hot water, eating vegetarian only. It was very idyllic, a bit of hard work and a strange existence in the middle of the mountains surrounded by nature, my hosts have 4 lovely/crying/screaming children. To top it all off I had the worst hayfever, it felt like I was allergic to everything, the trees, the flowers, the cats, even dosed on Zrytec I’d spend the first 2 hours of everyday blowing my nose constantly. Perhaps I got used to the polluted London and my system decided to reject such pure nature.

I feel like I really need to explain that, drinking water straight from the mountain everyday, eating only organic vegetarian and fruits of my labour, vanity and style was the last thing I cared about. So it has been a slow process starting to hunt street style again, but alas, I was in Paris!

So Parisiennes, now they are a different brew. Classic, simple and always always always stylish. It made me cringe with my peasantness and the clothes in my backpack for 2 months.

So going from pulling out weeds with my bare hands, I went on to meet and snap these lovely and stylish Parisiennes and that has been France for me. I feel like the week I had in Paris was not enough at all, I would like to return and explore more, well I am sure I will be back.

A bientôt Paris!

Looks familiar? I see her often on my way to work and she has some fantastic outfits, shame I don’t always have my camera with me. Glad I caught her today.
