Daily Outfit – Top Shelf Old Bean! I take my 1950′s style look out for coffee with a Gnome…
Landing back in Melbourne’s Autumn is taking a bit of adjustment after the spring time in Vegas. Today’s outfit was all about warm, comfortable and stylish for my first day back on the job behind the makeup brushes. There was no specific inspiration for this look, I was simply trying to pull together things that went easy on me, not too tight, not too fussy and something I could wear with ballet flats after a full ten days of walking, shopping and dancing in heels. But once I was dressed and the pearls went on, the new hair cut made me think of an early Jacqui Kennedy. Maybe that’s just my brain.. or perhaps just what pearls do to everyone!

Shot on location at Cup & Bean in Yarraville – where I drank the BEST coffee I’ve ever had in my life!! Given I’d just had to live through ten days of American coffee (if you’re American you probably aren’t aware just how different yours is), I was in a very bad way. Helen knew what a bad state I was in and drove me there stat. Barrista Tim made me the most divine brew and I can’t recommend it highly enough, so if you’re over that side of town, go there – NOW! Oh and the random Gnome? He happens to reside there and looked a little lonely on the counter top so we invited him to join us. Blame it on the jet lag.
