As of late, the amount of images stored on my pc containing girls dressed so effortlessly in a pair of skinny jeans and breton tops or loose knit jumpers has been proliferating at an incredible pace. Mostly, of course, due to my desire to look even half as effortless as they do, with their carefully messed up hair and the nonchalant vibe they seem to project. The result, well, a couple new pairs of jeans added to my wardrobe, and a renewed vigor with which to wear them.

I probably haven’t felt quite so passionately about wearing jeans since I was 15 or 16 years old, when a slight flare was the style du jour, which was then swiftly preceeded by the skinny jean, which took some time for me to warm up to. Having spent much of the past five years or so alternating readily between dresses and skirts for daily wear, it would seem only natural that I would finally throw jeans into the mix on a more regular basis. I suppose just another obvious example of style evolving, although it’s funny to note how quickly they can change, or revert back to perhaps something reminiscent of what you used to wear and for some reason thought that the moment had passed.

I’m anticipating that over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be overdosing on fashion, what with Wellington Fashion Week starting next Wednesday, and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia the following week in Sydney. In light of these two fashion-centric weeks, I finally got around to creating a Facebook page with an aim for a bit of up-to-the-minute blogging, which I hope that in the moment, isn’t forgotten. Also, as my last trip to Sydney was approximately 10 years ago, any recommendations on where to eat and shops I should see are welcome! x

    Never been to Sydney so I can’t be any help sorry. Good use of the word proliferating! I tend to collect pics of – expensive and affordable alike – shoes…
    Have fun at fashion week!

    There was a time when I hated jeans, I thought they were boring.. then I learned that all you have to do is accessorize well (and pick good well fitted pieces).

    You look lovely!

    I’m doing the opposite to you and tried to wear more dresses in summer. But I’m super excited for the cooler weather coming up so I can go back to my favourite – jeans, blazers, loafers etc. I have a long list of Sydney places but wander the streets of Surry Hills for plenty of good shops and cafes, and maybe try The Commons in Darlinghurst if you get there.

      Will definitely make an aim to try and do both! I am hoping to have a bit of free time up my sleeve. Staying in Rose Bay so should be good being not too far from Bondi too! šŸ™‚

    Sweater + jeans is such a winning combination. I think you wear it as well as the girls in the pictures you’ve been hoarding! And I feel the same way about gaining a new (or renewed) love for jeans – once your find your perfect cut, you become obsessed šŸ™‚

    You look so pretty šŸ™‚
