(Asos Pants/Tee, Vintage Leopard Jacket/Bag/Necklace, Topshop Heels)

If there's anything better than getting out of the house, going somewhere nice for lunch and wearing heels during the day, it's doing all of this with your boyfriend with you for once. Luckily Luke had a meeting in the city the same day as I did so we ventured down together, where we treated ourselves to a delicious lunch at The Rocks in the afternoon before coming home to the large pile of work waiting for us both.

In the second last photo you'll spot the Harbour Bridge in the background. The Rocks is such a beautiful place and I always enjoy spending the day here, whether it be visiting the cosy little cafes, walking along the waterfront and soaking in beautiful view of Australia's iconic Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House, or making the short walk to Circular Quay and The Botanical Gardens for a late afternoon picnic. Wish Luke had more meetings in the city so we could spend our days doing exactly this. Heels optional.

Just a few new purchases from Asos, as well as this unreal blue vintage briefcase that is now my new laptop bag. It's made from a thin, textured leather and I can't believe how strong it is. Perfect for meetings and adding that pop of colour to your outfit.

  42. Always gorgeous. So nice seeing you in trousers, those style in particular are huge here in the UK atm! Next time you're at the Rocks, you NEED to get a box of macaroons from Baroque. They truly are the best outside of France. The salted caramel ones are particularly yummy! xx
