WEARING: INCYDA Alaya Anorak | COUNTRY ROAD Drape Pant | FRENCH CONNECTION Sandals | ACNE STUDIOS clutch | KARL LAGERFELD watch
Looking through my last few posts, I realised I had unintentionally worn stripes in each post so I thought I may as well make a 'Stripe Series' where I'll choose to wear one striped item for each post (trousers, outerwear, top, shorts etc.) and this post, the stripes are on an outerwear piece. Patterned outerwear pieces in general may seem a bit hard to style, but the key is to keep everything else a block colour to avoid too much clashing (though sometimes it's good to break the farshun rules).
Today is the first day of Spring here in Australia and after too many months of wearing a multitude of layers I'm glad to be able to wear some more lightweight fabrics. Since Melbourne has a tendency to have sudden cool changes, it's not quite sleeveless weather yet so this anorak is the perfect option.
