It’s been snowing for the better part of the past four days here in London, and let’s just say it’s been pretty exciting. I’ve seen snow plenty of times before, but never in a city, with layer after layer of fresh powder coating the streets around me. The usual wintery sights of bare trees and grey sidewalks are suddenly brought to life with a beautiful bright whiteness. It’s the ultimate winter delight.
I shot beautiful Lia-Belle on a glorious summers day for my latest street style column in Grazia Australia. Hands down one of the warmest, most hard-working girls I’ve had the blessing of befriending, so it was very fitting that Lia-Belle was my last street style subject in Sydney. For the time being at least anyway.
Lia-Belle is the epitome of cool in this stripe on stripe combo by Dorota. It’s such a refreshing take on the classic stripe; a little textured and perfectly cut. The crop is super flattering – it’s as far away from the silhouettes of the 90’s as possible – sexy but not too revealing. It’s all about showing some skin without exposing the belly button.
I’m a big fan of Australian label Dorota (particularly this dress here) – her pieces are the perfect balance of super cute and super cool. The website is coming soon, so keep an eye out.
Before visiting Prague, I had a lot of romantic notions about how beautiful the city would be. We arrived at night, and driving past Prague Castle for the first time all lit up and towering over the canal is one of the most memorable moments of my trip. It was like stepping back in time; a real-life castle with an impossibly beautiful presence. No photos, but forever imprinted in my mind.
Prague really is a special place – with ornate buildings lined up along spacious streets, delicious pilsners, the charming Old Town, impressive views over the city, and traditional Czech-style cafes (a cross between a restaurant and a large dining hall) which are open all hours of the day. We planned our stay to coincide with Christmas, which really was a world away from the usual balmy weather and family traditions back home. Sadly no snow, but the extravagance of Christmas lights, markets, carols and mulled wine was more than enough.
Never has a shoe felt so comfortable. These kicks are like walking on brand new carpet all day long. And while they look kinda weird off the foot thanks to the soft mesh fabric over the toes, they are actually super cool when you slip them on. Perfect for days of endless walking, exploring new cities and sights.
