Living The Dream

I'm very lucky that my street here in Melbourne has a lot of incredible street art. It really makes walking the dog a lot of fun, seeing what is new on the walls this week. They also conveniently make great backdrops for blog outfit photography! I thought this 'Living the Dream' piece by artist Camille Walala was the perfect backdrop for my super colourful almost Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat inspired outfit. The dress is a new buy from local Melbourne label Obus. I instagram'd a change room try on pic asking if I should indeed buy it and got an overwhelming response of HECK YES! So not one to disappoint the people (what did I just say?) I went ahead and bought it. I'm selfless like that, always thinking of others! Jokes aside I do love this dress, the Aguayo inspired print is just incredible.

It's been incredibly windy in Melbourne of late so my hair was a little worse for wear in these photos after being blown around all day. But whatevs at least I'm semi smiling for once.

Melissa Australia kindly sent me these Japanese Geta inspired flatform jelly shoes and they've fast become my favourite pair. I love me a good flatform but these are extra special because of that mash up of traditional Japanese footwear and the modern jelly shoe.
