Back in the day (my early twenties) my wardrobe, in terms of colour, was minimal. When I say minimal, I mean you wouldn’t have caught me wearing anything else but black, black & black. I remember at the time, making a conscious decision that my wardrobe would be reduced to only this hue. I embarked on this style journey for quite sometime and I cant really remember when I started to embrace colour again. Perhaps it was when I discovered Camilla!
These days I am happy to have a good mix of colour and black in my wardrobe (so is my husband!) but I will always have a soft spot for black pieces. Whether it be a nice black top for going out or a versatile black dress, this colour certainly makes a statement. The dress I am wearing here is from Elk. I love it because it is super stylish and comfortable/easy to wear. You may know Elk from their quirky accessories but they also offer a great line of women’s apparel.
The pics in this post were taken in Melbourne where I was lucky enough to take a very short escape to over the weekend. The weather was a little gloomy but the window shopping more than made up for it. I checked out H&M – had to line up to get in the door? When I finally got in it was a little too mad for my liking so wasn’t in there for too long! Zara is always good to take a look but my visit to the new Emporium was definitely the highlight. I have to say this place blew me away. The line-up of shopping is very exciting to say the least and Kate Spade, yes gals, Kate Spade is opening up soon – this store will be mine next visit…
