Adventures in Music: Melbourne International Jazz Festival

Wherever jazz is, I is. Bebop's my home. I don’t know if you know this about me; but I’m a bit of a jazz enthusiast.

Which makes the upcoming Melbourne International Jazz Festival a pretty exciting event for me. May 30th until June 8th the city will be filled with top jazz musicians from around the world playing in venues ranging from small clubs, to concert halls.

There are around 100 acts all in all at this year’s festival. The Charles Lloyd Sky Trio is the first act to kick off the festival on 30th May. Performing at the Melbourne Recital Centre, you won’t want to miss this show.

Other impressive acts performing at this year’s festival include:
  • Davi sings Sinatra
  • Joshua Redman Quartet
  • Chick Corea & Gary Burten duets
  • Larry Carlton Quartet
  • Jorge Pardo Huelles

Winter Wardrobe Planning

all images & their sources via my pinterest

To be honest, my winter wardrobe planning is nothing special. I am a big fan of buying comfortable practical, work-to-weekend clothes. Maybe throw some heels in there somewhere and a bit of lace for good measure.

Items on my list:

Leather jacket
Grey pants
Chunky sweaters
Midi slim fit skirt
Long sleeved stripe dress
White shirt
Bomber jacket
Loose fit pants

New house, new outfit wall!

Exactly as I was saying in my last post, Autumn allows for greater flexibility of clothing options. An oversized sweater and shorts is my current favourite weekend outfit. This wool jumper was something my boyfriend purchased while we were on our USA trip. Luckily he (for some reason) didn't want it any longer and gifted it on to me. Voila! Perfectly oversized, I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this item this season

Autumn Dressing

Avoiding the city crowds on a Thursday evening, me and Marlee resorted to dark and dingy laneway blog photos after the Belmore event. Rainy yet warm, I enjoy these Autumn Melbourne evenings. The weather allows for so many more clothing options than in the heat of summer and dead of winter. No jackets, shorts and a jumper, pants and a singlet, I love it. Pretty sure that is why Autumn has to be the best season.

And, yes I am wearing the same (read: favourite) shirt as in my last outfit post but hey, I'm no hero.

shirt - Country Road
pants - Gorman
bag - Deadly Ponies
boots - Tony Bianco

Kara Liu x Belmore Bootmakers Launch Party

If you have been to Melbourne, then you've probably visited QV. Home to some of the best shopping, you can find; Incu Women's and Men's, Aesop, Vanishing Elephant, Zimmerman and the recently opened APC. Amongst these shops is Belmore Bootmakers which smells deliciously rustic with its leather shoes and wooden decor. As a part of VAMFF, Designer Kara Liu has designed a collection of loafers with Belmore that are fresh and modern. Pastel pinks and apricots, as well as a simple black and white pair that just quietly, would it in my wardrobe quite perfectly.

We drunk alcoholic iced tea, which I'd never encountered before but I must say, it was pretty yum and people watched as the super stylish Melbournians crammed into this narrow space.

Thanks to Marlee and Khoa for the invite to Kara Liu x Belmore Bootmakers launch party.
