And life in lockdown resumes in Melbourne. I think we’re all pretty devastated to be in this situation, but we need to do what we need to do in order to keep each other safe. It’s daunting to consider being cooped up again for an extended period of time, particularly as things felt like they were returning back to normal. I think that we will certainly need to rely on our friends and family to help us through this time around, and that’s okay. Hello to nightly FaceTime dates!
I was hoping to air out some of my winter wardrobe during post-uni celebrations, but this will have to wait for another 6 weeks. But as I discovered during the last lockdown, this won’t stop me from dressing up despite having no place to go. With that, my Day 1 of re-lockdown outfit was sorted.
After the first lockdown concluded, it was pretty hectic juggling work and the final weeks of uni studies. But I did have the chance to buy a couple new pieces for work. Our customers have dubbed them as ‘mum jeans’ and I am obsessed with the cut of them. The skinny-leg style that has reigned for over 10 years has been pushed aside to make way for high-waisted, wide-legged jeans that are reminiscent of the 80’s. Today I wore them with a simple white turtleneck, decorated white sneakers, my classic trench and a vintage leopard-print bag. My outing to my backyard was short but sweet.
I am in love with these sneakers! The last pair of white sneakers that I bought back in 2018 were also from Mimco, because I adore the detail on their classic sneakers and the fact that they update the style yearly. They are certainly a little bit extra, which is just the way I like my shoes. They are also incredibly comfortable and of excellent quality.
