While shooting today a lady said “bad day for it, eh?”. I just smiled and kind of said “yeah…”, but I trailed off mid-sentence as I didn’t know what she meant. She literally could have meant anything, but I was having too much fun to care. I’m oblivious to onlookers now. Initially I would get nervous and get Jonathan to stop taking photos, but now I just continue. Gotta get shit done, huh!?

Yesterday I mentioned Monday was such a good day because it allowed me to get a start on the week! But then Tuesday came and had me so busy I barely had time to each lunch. Today I was busy uploading stock for an online store I manage, uploaded a new blog post to MidCity’s Style Space blog, shot this outfit and liaised for a shoot we are shooting over two days next week! I wouldn’t have it any other way though. I love my job(s), they’re very fulfilling.

I am off to Melbourne (again) next week as well, which is super exciting. I was only there three weeks ago, but I am heading there for work and I get to take Jonathan this time around.

I am already wondering what to pack for Melbourne – procrastination at it’s finest. When I was there three weeks ago I lucked into some amazing weather, but I bet this time around my ass will freeze right off. I definitely won’t be getting away with bare legs that’s for damn sure…

I am enjoying wearing a softer palette lately. I am more about the soft textures than patterned. It’s only a phase I am sure, but a welcomed phase at that.

Pairing this dropped waist dress from MLM back with a classic trench coat by Miss Guided and man style brogues is the perfect androgynous look for a mild winter’s day. It is a great smart casual style that you can wear to meetings without being over the top or too relaxed.

In other news Jonathan, my fiance just re-designed MLM’s site (the dress that I am wearing is by MLM), it is so fresh and beautiful and I am so proud of him. He is such a talented creative and I am so lucky to work alongside him most days! Be sure to check out the latest collection and Jonathan’s work!
