Travel Outfit: Grey Knit, Jeans | Work: Printed Dress, Alexander Wang Rocco

Here's what I wore for my last day in Melbourne and to fly home on Sunday:
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
Top: Topshop knitted scoop neck top (new purchase)
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown from Reebonz


Our last day in Melbourne was extremely cold! I was glad I'd bought this comfy knit in topshop on Saturday, it came in very handy. Just a nice casual outfit to stay comfy and warm and get home to see Cooper :)

DH borrowed my camera for the big F1 race so took this at the airport when we caught up after. Had such a lovely time on our trip, you can see some photos on my facebook page or instagram.

Here's what I wore to go back to work today:
Scarf: Target white scarf, gift from mum
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual
DressFrench Connection 'pendragon panache' cap sleeve dress in 'winters day base'
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats in black and white
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon from Reebonz


Picked this simple outfit for my first day back at work, as we flew in late last night. I thought the greens and blues of the dress would go well with my new bag, although I'm not sure about the textured scarf with the print. Probably should have left the scarf behind, I kept changing my mind about it throughout the day. What do you think?

  11. I think scarfs are just the best travel accessory - they are easy to pack, and always offer a great pop of color when you need it.

  18. I saw your reveal on YouTube! What a great purchase! I reckon the scarf probably should have been a different one? Maybe slightly less "fringy"? You still look cute though!

  21. I saw your Instagrams from Melbourne. Such lovely beaches! I wish we had amazing cliffs like those in Australia, but unfortunately our coastline is completely flat AND full of ugly 1970s apartment buildings. It's horrific, you should see it! Anyway, I love these outfits Mica. Those Marc Jacobs flats are so so cute!! x
