A weekend in Sydney

Last weekend we made a quick trip to Sydney for the engagement party of two very close friends. We also managed to squeeze in a bit of touristy action with the Sydney Bridge Climb which was predictably amazing. Blue skies and hardly any wind made for the perfect climb and the views were as good as you can imagine.

I realised as we were walking to the bridge in the morning that I was having an unintentional 'sponsored by Seed' moment so forgive the repetitive tags!

I am in love with these new cropped jeans which are a gorgeous not-quite-nude/not-quite-caramel colour, perfect with a peek of tanned ankle poking out the bottom. Both the sweater and the jeans were a bit of an impulse buy, I went in to the store to return something and typically came out buying even more. Ooops. In my defense however, I think the jeans will be a staple this summer and I have already worn the sweater several times. It's a great weight and just right for this trans-seasonal time of the year when you still feel the need to be covered up at times but not with the weight of a winter knit.

Following the climb we headed to the cafe at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a much-needed glass of wine and a delicious platter of cheese, meats and olives. It might sound like a random place to head for lunch but it is a great spot with amazing views of the bridge and harbour.

Saturday evening we headed out of the city to Cronulla to celebrate our friends in engagement. The house where the party was looked out over the water and we spent the evening drinking cocktails and feeling very far from London!

Gorgeous table decoration idea of simple flowers in glass jars with twining ribbon-ideal to steal!

On Sunday we headed down to the beach for a recovery breakfast in the sun before making our way slowly back to a very cold, grey and rainy Melbourne. Pretty much like arriving back in London more often than not so I felt quite at home. At least I got to wear my new Ray Ban Erika sunnies for the weekend first though, they can never totally replace my faithful wayfarers but they are definitely flavour of the month at the moment. I love the larger shape and they have a bit of a vintage feel to them too which I love.
