From The Archive: 2016

The year of travel- from Aus to Africa- as well as some of my favourite ever photos, I hope 2016 brings a small dose of wanderlust (and fashion inspiration if not)!

Europe Style Travel

Sea Blue

There’s something about the crumbling tiled walls of the coastal town of Setubal, the way they contrast with the blue sky in June and the feeling of twenty-something degree heat that has something pretty special about it. Perhaps it was this dress that had me feeling all Roman Holiday (in Portugal, nonetheless)- or the fact these were taken moments after stepping off of a four hour idyllic (albeit slightly wind-swept) boat ride, but I was feeling particularly summery- and was probably a ’99 away from bursting with SPF 30…

Plus, although probably the most uncultured thing I’ll say, the whole town almost reminded me of the romanticism (ahem) of a high-scale summery beer advert that you sometimes catch at the cinema (hear me out). Where locals clink glasses in the 5pm sunshine, nattering next to the gentle waves as someone winks to the camera (see here or here, I’m not totally bonkers)- or something ridiculous like that. Perhaps the sunshine has gone to my head after all…
