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.
