TORN APART



ASOS T-SHIRT / PAIGE DENIM JEANS / WHISTLES CLUTCH / MONICA VINADER BRACELET / BIANCO SHOES

When I'm wearing ripped jeans, I can't help but feel like I'm being slightly rebellious and un-traditional. I was an incredibly predictable teenager, and never had that feeling that I even slightly went a little crazy, so now in my 20s - yes, I will wear a pair of ripped jeans, thank you! However, rebelliousness is defined by breaking the norms, and ripped jeans can hardly count as a rule-breaking style anymore having been around for that exact same purpose for many years. And so it goes, that in the fog of my jet lag in the middle of the night back in Melbourne, I found myself going through the drawers of my grandmother's desk, trying to find ribbon as I was wrapping a present. No luck in the ribbon search, but before I knew it, I found myself surrounded by piles of old photographs of my father's young Melbourne days. There he was, in the streets of Fitzroy with his guitar and in his ripped jeans. My late night went so late it got early, but it was so intriguing to have a peak into what the streets were like then, and slightly amusing that somehow this style then has survived throughout decades. Now, I don't want to brag, but my dad is in my opinion one of the coolest fish in the pond, so I would never be the one to rebel (I'm a peace-maker, ya' know), but I love this thought; how would you rebel against a generation of rebels? Ripped jeans? They've been there! More holes? They'd probably ask you to make them a pair! I'm left puzzled, but until I figure it out, I will keep wearing the holes in my jeans as were they my invention.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

GERTRUDE STREET



HANDSOM SHIRT / HANDSOM SHORTS / POLLINI BOOTS / HAY TOTE / PRADA SUNNIES / DW WATCH

Bloggers be blogging, but someone *coughs, me* hasn't been. Now I'm sure you're as uninterested in my excuses as my teacher would be if I was ever late for school, but (keyword in any good excuse, one for the notes) fashion weeks are bananas. And not just the fashion weeks, but the whole time around them. There's no way to prepare your body for what you're about to experience - it's a wonderful time with all of the treats and perks included, absolutely, but somehow these recurring events echo back to when I was a student with sleep out of the equation and caffeine being your best friend.

Looking forward to sharing my amazing #MBFWA here on the blog, but if you're keen for the live updates, head to snapchat or Instagram @SRHMIKAELA.

HOPE YOU'RE DOING GREAT

NATURAL ESCAPE


ZARA JUMPSUIT

A little bit of a personal post coming up. See, I have had a budding dream for a while, which I am going to let you in on. You know how people have their 5-year / 10-year plans? I have never quite been as organised as that, but claiming guilty of being a true romantic (a real gushy one, in fact), dreams do arise. I don't know where this started, but I would love to live in a treehouse. Away from the city, one with the surrounding nature but of course with an excellent wi-fi connection, please!
°
If there's something that keeps me grounded from a glamourised industry, it's things like growing my own fruit and veg; until I moved to London, I had no idea this was actually an interest of mine. Why you will also now see green as being one of the main colours of my Instagram account. Back to topic, having just arrived a little bit out of Sydney, the nature here has completely rekindled my dream. The weather has gotten a bit chillier here, but having been born and raised in Denmark, you will never hear me complain about anything over 20°. One day perhaps, but until then, I will hang on to this flowy jumpsuit for future identity references.

THE PACKING MYSTERY



REISS SHIRT / AC FOR AG JEANS DUNGAREE DRESS / REISS BAG / BIANCO SHOES / WOLFORD SOCKS / MONICA VINADER BRACELET

Now, packing a suitcase of outfits worthy of picturesque Paris proved itself a bit of a challenge. Whenever I'm undecided / frustrated / confused - I snack. So there I was, looking down at my practically empty suitcase, that had more Smarties in it than complete outfits. I do like the whole idea of planning outfits beforehand, and yet somehow I always end up combining it in a completely different way than I had initially thought out. Sometimes because of Smarties stains to annoyingly remind me of my struggles from the packing night, and therefor you can imagine my relief, when this dungaree dress came out white. Sometimes I just don't understand how I can get away with it, but then again, the Universe does pay back by possibly making me the clumsiest thing with two legs, constantly walking into things, falling down from things and just... things. Touché Universe.. Touché.



I HOPE YOU HAVE HAD A REALLY LOVELY WEEKEND - SYDNEY ADVENTURES WILL TAKE OFF SOON, SO MAKE SURE TO CHECK IN ON THE INSTAGRAM AND SNAPCHAT @SRHMIKAELA

HAPPY EASTER



A big happy Easter to all! The day is coming to an end here in Melbourne, and I have spent the day with my lovely grandmother at her place not to mention the cat, Cosi van Tutti, who has happily been purring away whilst we celebrated the holiday with delicious hot cross buns from Phillippas, an ocean of Easter eggs, canasta with friends Cara and Lillian and I even had a good go at a 200g crunchy chocolate bunny solo - let's just say that now, by the end of the day, I can't move and my pride left me with that last hand in Canasta. Such a wonderful day nonetheless, and I'm hoping yours is equally as lovely.

HAPPY EASTER
