On the Easter Long weekend, I decided to go visit the area of Alexandria and take you along with me. I stopped off firstly at The Grounds Of Alexandria and took some photos, as well as getting some really tasty lunch. I also visited some homeware shops around the area, since I’m currently on the hunt for a nice rug. In Australia Autumn has approached and it’s beginning to get cooler and cooler. However as I’m writing this it is currently 26 degrees and I’m sitting in the sun by the pool. But it’s definitely getting cooler, so here is an outfit i’ve been loving in Autumn so far.
Around the Autumn and Winter seasons, it is essential to have a pair of black denim jeans. These ones I bought last year and I find them super comfy to wear all day. They can be paired with anything to either dress up or down an outfit. Black Skinny Jeans
Here I paired the jeans with some black boots, which are also a staple item I have in my wardrobe, since they always look nice with black jeans or pants on a night out. Black Boots
One of my newest additions to my wardrobe is this leather biker jacket with faux fur collar. This jacket is AMAZING, it keeps me warm, it’s really comfy and it looks stunning on. Since it was a pretty hot day I didn’t get a chance to wear it, but I know it will be getting a lot of use out of it. It also has a piece of black faux fur around the collar and a belt around the waist, to give it a more unique look then most leather jackets. Leather Jacket
The cami is also a recent purchase from Urban Outfitters. I absolutely love cami style tops and leopard prints, so this top was right up my alley. The top looks nice tucked into a skirt or with jeans how I’m wearing it.Leopard Print Cami
Also the earrings I’m wearing were a gift I received for my birthday from a boutique near where I live called Alex and Ferry. They are a gold and light pink colour and look really nice with a simple casual outfit. Alex and Ferry
I’ve had this bag all summer and haven’t really had the chance to use it yet because I didn’t want to get it ruined at the beach. I bought it at a market near me called the Glebe Markets, but I know you can also purchase it at the Bondi Markets. I love the light grey colour on a leather bag, as well as the style and shape of the bag. The bag was pretty affordable and is really light weight to carry around.
At the Grounds of Alexandria, there is so much to going on. They have two restaurants/cafes which both have amazing food, as well as two places to order takeaway food, which I opted to because it was too busy. They also have florists, markets occasionally and a little farm. The Grounds Of Alexandria
This place we visited was in the area and it’s called Water Tiger’s. This place is sooo BEAUTIFUL. When I walked in I wanted to buy everything. The shop is so aesthetically pleasing, but the price tags crushed me. However it was nice to walk around and dream that one day when I have my own place I can have it look like this. Water Tigers
Design Twins is a homewares place we visited which is next door to water tiger. They have some amazing rugs which I may or may not have purchased one, as well as nice pots and pillows. If your in need for some nice furniture, check out this place because they have such beautiful homeware goods and is a bit more affordable then the shop next door.
