CHECKERED POLKA DOTS

Dorothy Perkins dress, Twocoathangers vintage blazer, Topshop boots, Minkpink sunnies

As you can tell.. I'm really enjoying my gorgeous red scooter up there.

If only.

This checkered blazer was a vintage buy off eBay store twocoathangers quite awhile back when I was on my eBay craze phase. Admittedly I don't think I've worn it in the past year, but it struck me that checks were a cool complement to this sweet polka dot dress I picked up in London a month ago :) The sun decided to come out of hiding on the day and so did these oversized shades. I also realise I have a thing for tortoise-shell.

Following this I had lunch at this cute cozy little Japanese cafe Aka Siro in Collingwood. Simple orderly interior decor, delicious homey food. I'm so glad I'm making the effort to try new eateries since being back in Melbourne! Perhaps an attempt to still feel like I'm travelling and exploring new places?
