Aligned in Fitzroy

It's been so much fun rediscovering my old hood, Fitzroy. I grew up in and around Fitzroy, Carlton and Brunswick (we moved a lot when I was a kid) and while a lot has changed it's nice to see not everything has.  I love the people watching and cute new cafe's that have popped up down the Gertrude St end of Brunswick St and popping into the lovely boutiques that line the street in every direction. Strolling down Brunswick St after brunch today the polkadot raincoat above caught my eye in Gorman's shop window. I've wanted a polkadot raincoat ever since I could remember so I dragged a reluctant Henry in and promptly bought the coat. I love the a-line shape of the coat, it goes perfectly with my new gingham smock dress from ASOS that got a lot of instagram love when I wore it last week.

I've been wanting to try out the hyped OCC Lip Tar's but as they're virtually impossible to get a hold of in Australia when I saw that Sportsgirl were doing something similar (albeit with a much much much smaller colour range) I immediately picked up two colours, my favourite being the red above.

I will always cherish this lovely locket by my friend Chris which is an anatomical heart that opens up to reveal a photo of Henry and I. It's my go-to necklace when I'm after something small and delicate to finish my outfit rather than my usual big and bold pieces.

OMG if you want to do yourself a favour buy these boots right now! These are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. I ummed and ahhed about buying them for so long I almost missed out in my size, so glad I finally got them. So good for Melbourne's famous four seasons in one day as they're essentially gumboots when it inevitably rains you won't end up with soggy wet socks.

Shop the look!!!


  1. Defo love the gingham/polka dot combo - but I want to know what lip tar is?

    1. Skye, Lip Tar is a super pigmented mixture of gloss and lipstick. They can be a bit messy to apply but apparently the OCC branded ones are amazingly easy to use with little mess. I want to try them so bad but they don't have many/any stockists here in Aus x

  2. Hayley, I had to laugh, when you go to the Juju page on ASOS, they recommend avoiding contact with liquids! Ha.

    1. That must be a mistake on the ASOS website as Juju market them as wellies/gumboots on their site xoxo

  3. I love your outfit! So cute <3

  4. Gotta love Gorman, it's a classic, welcome back to the hood lady!

  5. I buy OCC from their website, they ship to Australia. It is definitely worth it, I've never gotten so much use out of any lip products before them.

  6. I really love this dress and thought about buying it, too. :)
    You look adorable! <3

  7. Cute as a button.
    You look like a gorgeous little girl.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
