Food & Fashion - Colourblock

If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen some of my Sydney beachwater pics today. Oh the sun was so bright, the temperature was perfect with a slight breeze and the water was so clear, totally PERFECT for a Bondi beach to Coogee beach walk along the cliff face. Everyone young and old was out, dogs were off their leashes and everyone was in high spirits because we're feeling the seasons change already. Well...we're hopeful :)

Although my legs are now sufficiently feeling dead from 2+hours of the brisk walking up and downhill, I still feel the need to continue with the Food & Fashion series. And this week's inspo is dedicated to blocks of colour; bright and subdued shades. I have my eye on trying out Rachael's Red Velvet Kisses (from Made From Scratch -- check this blog out, it is Beee-U-ti-ful, brimming with inspiration and scrummy recipes), the S'mores pudding pops are making my mouth water and seeing that photo of the Nigiri Sushi we ate in Tokyo gives me SUCH pleasant memories!

I just bought myself the Bright Fuschia pony clutch below and can't wait to pair it up with blocks of subdued colours from my wardrobe. And I have my eye on the gorgeous caramel leather and black crepe maxi...just waiting for it to go further on sale! Bring on Spring/Summer I say!
