It's become a nice little Sunday morning tradition to pop to the local markets, grab some breakfast at a local cafe (this weekend was Daisy's Milkbar in Petersham, Sydney siders I can't recommend this joint enough) and snap some outfit shots.  This morning I left the house thinking I was fairly toasty but boy how these Sydney winters chill me to the bone. Thankfully the first market stall we happened upon had this handsome 1940s fur cape for a right steal. I'll tell you what, I couldn't whip the clams out of my wallet fast enough!

Come to think of it, I've been on a bit of a lucky streak clothing wise for the past few weeks. Peeking out from under this ensemble is the most incredible 1940s black wool suit that I still can't believe is mine. I'll be dedicated a post to the little darling just as soon as I attend to a few minor mends... story of my life.

I hope everyones had a swell week, mine has been crazy busy in the best kind of way. From seeing C.W. Stoneking play in a beautiful old church on Wednesday, to dancing so much on Friday that both of my shoes broke resulting in many the embarrassing tumble, I'm positively beat. I must say I'm looking forward to a rainy afternoon rugged up on the couch, cup of tea in hand, catching up on the final episode of Call the Midwife.

  6. I can relate to your cold weather very well right now. We are supposed to have warm summer weather here in Finland and Midsummer festival is this following weekend. But noooo. Today we've had hailstorm and sleet. So warmer clothes are really needed allthough everyone has already packed them away for the summer. Yaay...

    I love your cape and bag, oh what the heck... i love your whole outfit.
