This was the only proper outfit "shoot" that we did all week whilst in Sydney. I feel that I was probably being a bit too ambitious when I thought we were going to do it daily. It never occurred to me how time consuming getting the right photos would take (think whole body shots, close up shots of individual items, alongside the apparently "candid" shots). As such, I just opted for the easier option, which was to use my iPhone every other day for quick outfit snaps before heading to the next destination.

Whenever I do travel, I always try and plan the outfits beforehand. Attempting to buy an entire look for a special occasion (e.g. eating at fancy restaurants) when I'm on a holiday is rather stressful. I would have to be absolutely in love with something before making a purchase, as I get bored of clothes really easily. The other option when travelling is to just bring a lot of basics to give me the opportunity to mix and match without feeling repetitive.
I've been searching for a decent denim shirt for such a long time and was really pleased to find the right one from the Uniqlo pop- up store on Pitt Street. Who knew it was a challenge to find such a simple shirt with a complimenting cut. I paired the top with another current favourite of mine, the leather skirt with pockets that can fit my phone + lip balm, and these awesome cut- out boots.
We spent the beautiful day exploring Darling Harbour, watching people busk on the streets, visiting the Chinese Garden of Friendship, and taking numerous tourist photos on my DSLR. Twas a fun day.
