Raising the Stakes

My search for the perfect Derby Day look hasn’t been easy and I’m still googling the weather everyday in Melbourne (which has a bad reputation for crazy weather changes & I’m Melbournian so I can say that with confidence). Below a taste of what I’m thinking…My bets are on the Gucci look though, Kate Waterhouse has another favourite.

“I love the D&G/ELLERY look. I like a top and skirt combination because you can play with different colours, prints and shapes to make your outfit unique and stand out from the crowd. I think spring racing is all about having fun and this look puts a fashionable twist on your traditional raceday attire.” – Kate Waterhouse

Goot Groupies

What do Cate Blanchett, Miranda Kerr, Elizabeth Debicki, Christine Centenera and I all have in common… well we are all Josh Goot fans!
Miss Blanchett summed up Josh’s new season to StyleMeRomy perfectly “Sculptural, baroque yet modern and sleek. An impossibly difficult mix of influences to keep in the air but to have them all land in one collection and indeed in these two dresses is pure genius.” CB

We spent a week in CapBreton, just over the Spanish border near Biarritz. We
stayed in a beach house with my good friends.

Crowded beach in the European summer- San Sebastian.

San Sebastian’s mouth to the Bay of Biscay.

The town of Zarautz covered by sea spray.

Vineyards in the Basque country.

Camping at a surf break about 30 miles west of San Sebastian for a week. We
spent the two days surfing, eating and playing cards in the sun.

The view from our campsite down to the beach.

Feasting by the lake in the sun.
