I have always loved stripes, or anything with a nod to nautical (must be my Southern roots). However; I wanted to do a twist on the standard navy and white, red accents and nautical accessories by replacing the red with a hot pink, mixing two different stripes, and opting for gold beads in lieu of my signature chain link. I love how these tiny tweaks give a fresh take on an otherwise basic trend.
(Coral and white stripes paired with a mint blazer or skirt is another version of this I absolutely love).
The sky really is the limit…or should I say rainbow.

After settling back into work, a new time zone and warmer weather, I was ready for a relaxing weekend back in Sydney. Unfortunately, the bright and sunny Australia Day was followed by a monsoon of rain and wind (perfect weather for Hunter’s).
Feeling a bit blah, due to my dismal surroundings, I decided to tap into my inner sunshine and rebel against my grey surroundings with hot pink…..of course! Sunday brunch at Bill’s (accompanied by a very large umbrella) was the perfect recipe for a brighter outlook.
