Hat – Helene Berman | Shirt – vintage (via mum) | Jeans – Just Jeans | Rings – markets

I’ve been waxing lyrical about embracing Autumn dressing recently, so I thought that today I should walk the talk. It’s still quite hot in the day time, so layering isn’t really an option (unless you’re in air conditioning all day). This shirt is quite loose and airy, which makes it perfect for that in-between kind of weather. Plus the fact that it was brown made it instant Autumn-dressing fodder. I wanted to try the combination of grey and brown (like in the Amy Kaehne lookbook below) but alas, I don’t own any grey jeans or pants. As for the hat, it’s actually a bowler hat but I turned out the brim to make it non-bowlerish. I hope that doesn’t ruin it. Anyway, I’m off for a spot of late night shopping, and forgoing my usual Thursday night yoga class to do so. Whoops.

P.S. How good is the Splendour in the Grass line up? I’m SO excited. The Strokes! Pixieeeeeeessss! I’ve seen a fair few of the acts already (not bragging, promise) but they’re all ones that I would see again and again. And then there are the ones I haven’t yet seen but CANNOT wait for i.e. Yeasayer, Two Door Cinema Club, Delphic, Foals… Who else plans on going to Splendour this year?

    hey soph! i reckon sportsgirl should still be stocking the polka dot tights – they're quite a popular item. cute hat! i love clothes you can wear multiple ways

    and oh my god how baaaaaaaaaaadly do i want to go to splendour? it would be the most epic experience of my entire life (i've never been to a music fest before!) but its just so much money to put away :/

    Ooh I really like the loose fitting shirt and that hat! A perfect look for autumn.

    oh my god that line up is SO GOOD…my friends never have enough money to go (and dont like the same music i do) so i never go, but i'd consider going on my own for this.

    loving that brown shirt too…fantastic colour if you can pull it off (and you do, easily!) xx

  19. Kallie April 17, 2010

    no matter how old i get, it still blows my mind that you have autumn in australia when we have spring in ny. its not that big of deal, but i am fascinated by how that happens.
    ps-the line up of that concert is out of this world. if you haven't already, check out surfer blood, I just learned about them and they are awesome.

  20. soph (owl vs. dove) April 17, 2010

    @everyone: Thanks for all the compliments πŸ™‚

    @Amie: You definitely have to put a Splendour experience on your bucket list. However, this year is v exxy and I guess even more so for people who have to travel from other states. Hopefully you'll get lots of sideshows!

    @daydreaminblue: Festivals are the best places to make new friends πŸ™‚

    @LisaGrace: Hopefully you'll get some killer sideshows instead!

    @avalonne: Oh you don't need long hair, you're rocking the KO haircut with hats anyway!

    @Liana: I'm devo it's not at Byron too. I'm kind of excited to be camping this year though. I think it's because nearly everyone else has to as well. The atmosphere is going to be amazing! Hopefully they've finally got the ticketing system sorted. *thinks positively*

    @Lori: Squeeeee! I'm so so so excited to see The Strokes. Will probably turn into a slight (understatement) fan girl haha.

    @Kallie: It is a bit mind boggling isn't it? Thanks for the rec too. Will definitely be checking them out!
