Winter is truly coming to an end over in Sydney and before I miss the ability to layer up, here's probably the last wintery outfit I'll post for a while. I've found that rust and amber hues are BIG in fashion this year, probably because of the major 70s comeback. I think it's a really great way to inject a bit of vibrant colour into winter wear, and it goes perfectly well with neutrals! 

My makeup was done courtesy of Evoke Hair & Makeup (on Market St in Sydney CBD) and they gave me quite a defined contoured look with bronzer underneath and alongside the cheekbones, which complemented the earthy tones in my coat and bag. Since then I've been trying to achieve a similar level of definition but I never quite have the makeup skills lol!

We then had brunch at a cafe in Vaucluse. Everytime I have brunch I tell myself I won't order any bacon this time but it always seems to be a crying shame to sit down somewhere with a breakfast menu and not order any bacon! It's such a relief on those shoot days where we shoot before eating because I know my stomach in all the photos are going to be pre-bacon lol.

Ive always been a big fan of supporting local Australian brands, and today's look features the iconic Metalicus! Metalicus pride themselves on high quality fabrication and wearable, versatile pieces that are great for layering. I chose two pieces to feature, the 'Hazel' vest and 'Pine wrap' skirt which I can transition from work to the weekend as well as between seasons! When I first saw this jacquard pine leaf printed skirt I thought it would be perfect for my work wardrobe with the midi length. I was however able to take this to brunch on the weekend instead and make it a bit more casual, with a crop top and ankle boots.
I'm so glad I had such a great weekend! I'm really relieved I'll be finally having a relaxing one coming up. I was able to squeeze in a furniture shopping day with my mum, assemble some IKEA furniture myself (so I'm basically a handyman now) haha, catch up with friends and woke up at 4am to fit in a sunrise photoshoot in a park and even at the beach. I can't wait to stay very attached to my bed this weekend :)

I can't believe September is just around the corner, the month of which I'll be going away to Japan! I have been so stressed out and busy lately I haven't even had time to cook a dinner every night let alone Google things to do and organise an itinerary for my trip...If anyone has any tips or travel ideas for going to Japan please let me know!! :)
