I have been obsessed recently with adding a pair of tuxedo denim to my collection. My typical purchases, as per my previous posts are classic, safe and sometimes, let’s be honest, boring. The conversation in my head goes something like this: “OMG how cute are theses! The stripe is so different. Wait, can I wear these in a year’s time? Are they to trendy? Do I want to spend $300 on a pair of non-classic denim?” And round and round we go.
The fact of the matter is, fashion should be fun. Yes you want the bulk of your wardrobe to be timeless but the pieces with personality that make your heart sing are the reason getting dressed is fun. Are these overstepping my line of comfort-no, and honestly they are classic, but something feels special when I slip these on vs. my stock standard pair of dark wash (fill in designer here).

New Year’s back in Sydney next year!
After some much needed time off, my little clan headed down South to spend Thanksgiving with my family. It was Pepper’s second time on a plane and he did so well (even met the captain). It was also the first holiday without Nanna which was hard but also nice to visit some of the places we use to go when I visited. As I was heading towards Cameron Village (our lunch spot was always the Village Deli), I noticed the gates were open to Tatton Hall-a stunning estate flanked with the last of the Fall leaves. Everything about the grounds were Southern and provided the perfect backdrop for some photos.
