Empire State of Mind

I know... I know... these pictures are clearly not from Australia. Coats don't really exist in Australia -- in my version anyway! As I type, I'm currently sitting under the Air Con in the 30+ degree(celsius) heat. Phew it's hot hot hot

These pictures come from a photoshoot that my friend Anna and I did in NYC prior to my departure for Australia. It's my favourite city and Anna and I had a great time running around taking photos just before we got hit by a freak snow storm (ahh, snow! Who knew I'd ever miss it!?). I'm going to try to keep these looks relatively recent, but some pictures just need to be shared!


Jacket: been in my wardrobe for ages
Jeans: The Gap
Boots: Hunter*
Watch: Esquire

White Cardi: The Gap
Necklace: Vintage, 33 cents

* If you don't own a pair of Hunter boots, I suggest you get on it! 

The Real World: Sydney

Sunday, November 29, 2009

I love MTV--always have and chances are extremely good that I always will! That being said, I was super excited to hop on a plane and finally get to Sydney, home of The Real World: Sydney (back in 2007).  I did the super touristy thing, but didn't manage to find the Real World house... ah well, that just means I'll have to go back!

On an island in the sun...

After spending the last 5 months in Australia, I've decided to start snapping my hot hot heat inspired clothing choices! Some are a little boring (sometimes a tee and shorts have to suffice) and some are more suited to the cold Canadian climate (it's hard to let go!)... but they will always be fun!


It's a bit strange celebrating the Christmas season sans snow (Christmas in the middle of summer?). Last week my flatmates and I did a little photoshoot at our local beach for Christmas! These are for those that are stuck in the cold...

Hot Red Shirt: Borrowed for the shoot, Witchery
Polka-dot baby blue Shorts: Surf shop sale bin $20, Insight
Sunnies: $3, JYSK 
Santa Hat: Laura & Alex's Chrissy Collection

and this one was just for fun... 

Happy Holidays!
