After a cold month of December in the U.S.A, I am now back in Australia and fighting the humidity and heat that wafts in the air of Queensland. I am not sure what has caused the mood but recently I have had a sudden want, no, NEED to wear flared jeans and sleeveless shirts. This combination to me is picturesque of California summers and for some reason reminds me of the palm trees lining the streets of LA. Maybe I’ll always be a California girl at heart, and no matter where I live or how long I live there I’ll always get the desire to move back to it’s sunny coast. When I was in the U.S. and having a cheeky browse at the amazing Neiman Marcus sale, I found these McGuire flared jeans with a raw hem and immediately fell in love, unfortunately, they were not on sale, as are all items I tend to drift toward in stores (I chalk it up to expensive taste, but I may just be unlucky). This new pair of denim, covers all the desires I have in life for a flare, and paired with my graphic MSGM t-shirt and ASOS heeled sandals, has me feeling like a 70’s rockstar about to slap on some rollerblades and boogie on down. I also picked up a new pair of sunglasses on my trip overseas. I was in search for a pair to replace my Celine Audrey sunglasses after Cornelius decided to eat them for breakfast (may they rest in peace) and I think these new Saint Laurent’s have filled the void that my Celine’s ultimately left in my life.
I have also paired this outfit with my unreal MOOI leather and cowhide envelope clutch. MOOI is an amazing brand that makes beautiful leather products. She also makes all her items with leather that is leftover from the food industry in Africa. You can view her website and all her amazing purses here: MOOI
