I always feel vulnerable wearing whites and lighter shades. The constant paranoia that I have spilt something on myself unknowingly (which to be honest would not be out of the ordinary) plagues my mind when I'm out and about. That is why this white playsuit scares me a little and has hung on my dress rack for much too long. 

There's just something nice about wearing white, especially in summer. It's sort of refreshing, as long as you stay far away from tomato sauce.

What are your thoughts on wearing white?

Our next stop in Italy was Florence. I've learned that each of the major Italian cities are one of a kind, their uniqueness distinctly separates them from one another. Getting out of the train station I knew I was far away from glamorous Milan and in a new old beautiful city with amazing scenery, ready for me to explore.

Walk, get lost, walk, stumble upon substantial buildings, walk, get lost, gelato stop, walk, pasta stop, walk, pizza stop and walk is all we did.

The architecture, rivers, bridges and the back drop of fields and trees makes Florence one of the most beautiful cities I've visited. We spent quite a bit of time just sitting, watching and soaking it all in.

Florence is incredibly beautiful. We spent 3 and a half days in Florence, if you're just planning on exploring Florence the city by walking around and taking in the sites two days would be optimal. You definitely don't get sick of how beautiful the place is, but we did struggle to find things to do that wasn't just sightseeing. But the city is filled with note worthy galleries, so if that's your thing a week might not even be long enough. 

Have you been to Florence? Did you also spend your days walking around, eating and getting lost?

Don't mind the incredibly derpy face in the last photo, it's my 'it's freezing face'.

I won't forget our first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. The night we got into Paris we decided to take a stroll around Montmarte. Whilst we were up on the hill of the Sacre-cœur bascilla observing the Parisian Skyline a tall beautifully lit tower stood out amongst the view.

There's such a hype created around the Eiffel Tower with the steel building representing romance and elegance in society. Although this trip was my first time to Paris, I felt as though the Eiffel Tower was a monument that I'd seen everywhere without actually seeing it (hello Paris themed everything at Typo). I always thought the Eiffel Tower was 'pretty', maybe I just thought that because it would always appear on cute bed sheets and colourful canvas, but it wasn't until I laid on my owns on it that I truly appreciated it's beauty. The structure is massive and positioned between beautiful gardens, very very very green grass, substantial residential buildings and the Seine River. Even the cold could not take away from it's impressive nature. 

 A full post on my stay in Paris will eventually go up :)

Have you been to Paris? If so, were you equally as impressed by the Eiffel Tower?

After a lengthy and somewhat stressful journey from Melbourne, to Dubai, to London and then to Italy, I'd finally made it to my first European city; Milan. A land of italian speakers, driving on the right hand side, vast history, incredible shopping, glamorous people with adorable dogs and impressive coffee.

Having only travelled to some of Asia and across Australia I hadn't witnessed many significant buildings that were older than I could've imagined and contained such rich history. The first thing I laid my eyes on when getting out of the metro station in the city was Duomo. I was astonished by the size and meticulous detail at every inch, it was nothing like anything I'd ever seen before. In the city centre I saw no offices or residential skyscrapers, just beautiful old buildings that were art galleries, churches and most importantly shops. Melbourne is famous for shopping and contains an equal proportion of big name stores and small boutiques everywhere, however in Milan it felt like big name stores were everywhere and those individual stores were all massive. Being a self-confessed shopaholic I enjoyed it just a little (helloooo Zara).

 Our stay in Milan was a short one filled with jet lag, however we were able to have much needed catch-ups with an Italian friend, drink some superb coffee in a cafe playing Chet Faker, drool over some of the amazing cars, start the shopping adventures and be in awe of each picturesque street and building.

One fashion capital down, 3 more to go.

Batman Market

This market opened a few months ago, but unfortunately I did not get the chance to go earlier because of university exams and then I went travelling. I'd seen so many instagram posts of the market with all the yummy food it had to offer; belgian waffles, ice-cream and so much more. So my first weekend back home in Melbourne I finally went and also got to catch up with a friend whilst there. The weather this weekend was confusing (Melbourne's summer weather is very bipolar), so there weren't many stalls open and the stalls I'd seen on instagram were not there. It was disappointing but I guess it just means that I'll have to go another time. I'm not complaining though because it's an excuse to eats lots of junk food.

My friend and I got a vietnamese iced coffee, a nice sitting spot under shade and caught up on the last 6 weeks of each other's lives that we had missed out on. 

I want to explore more of the markets the city has to offer during the summer period. The prospect of having lots of choice in food, eating outside and finding unique bits and bobs excites me. Hopefully there will be another trip to Batman market when more stalls are open and the various summer markets throughout Melbourne.

Do you know of any good markets in Melbourne? What are your favourite markets in your city?

My European Winter

These shots were taken in Hyde Park during my stay in London.

I recently just came back from a 6 week trip travelling across Europe. I travelled to a total of 11 countries and 20 cities and I can certainty say that I loved Europe. This trip involved a lot of firsts for me; it was the first time I'd travelled to Europe, been overseas without my family, the first real winter I'd experienced and the first time I'd spend Christmas in winter. A couple of people thought I was crazy going to Europe during the winter season whilst it was summer here in Australia and although the cold was not enjoyable at times it definitely added to the amazing experience. Everyone rugged up going to the Christmas markets, truly appreciating a hot drink like hot chocolate or mulled wine and seeing snowfall across the most beautiful landscapes definitely assured me that I made the right choice.

My winter uniform emerged during this trip that became a routinised part of my mornings before heading out. That uniform consisted of a black coat, jeans, checkered scarf and my medium sized longchamp (to fit my huge camera and very necessary gloves and beanie for when it got even chillier) and black chelsea boots. So now my Facebook friends who viewed my photos from the trip probably thought I wore the exact same thing every single day, but I promise it was just the outerwear :P

For my friends in the Northern Hemisphere I'd love to know what you're winter uniform is.

My SD card with majority of my travel photos stopped working and I currently have all fingers and toes crossed that it is fixable. If so, I will hopefully have a post up on each country I visited.

Thanks for reading!
