DOOR MOUSE

Dear Internets,

IMG_0600
Mystery, scale and memories. Doors have always welcomed me. It doesn’t matter if I’m sitting on the stoop of my parents house watching the world go by, seeking respite under the brim of an entrance in the chamber of giants or absorbing the days heat from the marble floor that forms my grandparent’s entry way in India.They are history and intrigue in themselves, even when closed.

They can lead to unguarded VIP sections at concerts, shortcuts to rides at theme parks, ways to avoid buying an item from each section of IKEA or nothing at all and sometimes that’s enough. It seems today that was the case or perhaps my attire, even sheathed in a sequins jacket did not classify as “Sunday best” enough to gain side entrance to this church.

Let’s face it, today was just a ‘comfy pants’ sort of day and there are none comfier than the one from H&M I just scored. One of the few stores whose translation into Australia has not been a disappointment, I could not help shop all their basics and then this cute beach bag to put it all in. Paired with my Mink Pink Lost in Translation “sushi and sake” muscle tee and black ballet flats, I was the picture of …well you can see them for yourself, thanks to my photog Maggie

MARKET DAY

Dear Internets,

IMG_0102

We love a good market day. There’s something geekishly fantastic about buying a bag full of apples, food out of a truck and home decor that has been made with the skill I imagine I have but do not actually posses (more about that later). Until we find a local famer’s market , this is a full days adventure where we spend too much of our money, no men allowed. Standard smiley sister shot taken, now it’s time to stuff our faces.

Obviously the best way to start the day is with a hearty breakfast from all the food groups that matter: caffeine and sugar from St Germain’s. For those of you who are uncomfortable with this, lets call it dairy and fruit? After that is was all frolics, florals, walking and limited bathroom breaks.

At the end of this particular day at Finders Keepers,  we walked away with a photo that will probably haunt the kidlet for the rest of his life (see above), space themed temporary tatts, a lunar calendar tote bag, a pretty white wire basket and full tummies. A short walk to a near by florist and 3 bunches of flowers later it was time to go back home. Exhausted but all worth the trek.

BLACK AND RED

Dear  Internets,

IMG_4058

Sometimes there’s nothing more satisfying that putting on a go to combination without having to think. Get everyone one board with the concept and there’s no more waiting outside the bathroom for your friend to construct the perfect bed hair and outfit to match. Black boots, shorts and a tee is one of my favorites for a casual trip out, particularly when I’m waiting for Sarahteaa (in the photographs). An actual effortless way to look effortless and we spend more time eating delicious things, shopping or getting our culture fix. The perfect plan.
