The Rocks, Sydney.

DSC_0159My favorite part of Sydney was a section called “The Rocks”. It had the coolest bars, restaurants, and views. I felt like I was in San Francisco, and it was even more beautiful because it was decorated for the holidays. Above is a photo from the modern art museum,, what a great quote by an even greater artist. (“Get Yourself In Trouble” – Chuck Close)

The Rocks is great because it is centrally located. Not far from downtown and really close to the harbour, it’s an awesome place to explore. My only regret was getting there after most of the shops had closed but that just meant we needed to grab a bite while admiring the sunset. Not a bad evening at all.

Outfit Re-do: Sleek Skirt

DSC_0288We believe in wearing your favorite piece over and over again because they are just clothes and it is fun to reinvent in outfit in a new way. But sometimes, there is that one skirt that just looks best with a basic tank and this is that skirt for me. You have seen it before here but I chose to wear it again on a crazy warm day in Sydney (think 95 degrees)! We were walking through the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House, this was a great day!

DSC_0295(This hat went through a lot on this trip, it flew off my head on a boat but was retrieved thankfully because it was my saving grace against the sun)

Sydney is such an active city, everyone is running, jogging, or walking around the city. It was a beautiful day and we were so happy to soak in the sites!
