If I’m being honest with you, Sydney isn’t a city with the most interesting architecture around. Visiting Barangaroo however planted a seed of optimism to this rather gloomy reality (ok, I’m being a little dramatic here). What can I say? I just love the mix of modern architecture, materials used and textures that make up the business, residential and retail precinct. Mind you, I’m actually unfamiliar with the architect/design/builder lingo so the little description that I gave isn’t going to do the grand project any justice. The only way for you to understand the beauty of Barangaroo is by visiting it.
A couple of Sundays ago, Mr M and I met up with some friends at Devon in Barangaroo for breakfast (which was super yum btw!). I had been dying to break out in my rose gold MM6 boots so I made that happen. My initial idea was to take the easy way out and pair it with some maternity skinny jeans that I ordered from Topshop (which I was told that it has gone missing after a 4-week wait). Seeing that waiting isn’t feasible anymore, I decided to just pair them with black tights and work the outfit from bottom up. I have to admit that those rose gold boots aren’t the easiest shoes to play with and they require a bit more thought in order to create a cohesive look. I find the shimmering texture really eye-catching but I need to also make sure that I’m making a statement that I’m comfortable with. I stuck to a more neutral palette with my dress and jumper so that I’m only creating one focal point. The only complaint I have is that there’s a tiny section within the right boot that kept rubbing on my skin, creating an abrasion that was very uncomfortable. I haven’t yet thought about the solution but I imagine rubbing some candle wax over it may solve the problem. If that doesn’t cut it, I may just have to place a blister pad on my skin to cushion that section. Things we do for the sake of fashion!
I’m so glad that I have a number of oversized things in my wardrobe that I could still easily fit into these days, being 6.5 months preggers! That’s truly the beauty of voluminous silhouettes. I thought being much bigger would make me want to wear clothes that are much tighter for a bit of counterbalance but it has done the opposite instead. I’m sure I would get to those tight-fitting ribbed dresses someday.
