After a tumultuous departure from London for Sydney and a seven hour delay in Dubai, I’m happy to be in Sydney at last. The picturesque beaches and bright blue skies more than make up for the 33-hour-flight!
When it comes to fashion, Sydney rocks the style of a very relaxed beach city: During the day, men tend to wear the flip flops, shorts and a washed-out Fresh Jive T-shirt. Women can be seen in tiny sun dresses, wide-brimmed straw hats and sandals. I’m glad Mr Romantique moved away from the generic Sydneysider look and now nails the casual but cool look: Knee length shorts, navy blue polo short and Ray Ban Aviators. For a stormy day, I’m wearing a red, printed T-shirt from Gianfranco Ferre, a comfy denim skirt from Esprit and my two indispensable Sydney accessories: South African Havaianas for comfort and Ray Ban wayfarers.
Mr Romantique is wearing: Shorts from Tokyo Laundry, polo shirt from Calvin Klein.

Sydney is a relaxed beach town, you can see people walking in “thongs” (Aussie slang for Flip Flips) and shorts, carrying a surfboard under the arm. In Australia, I don’t feel like wearing pencil skirts and silk blouses, but just slipping into something nice and breazy, shorts and a flowing, frilly silk shirt.
Along Bondi Beach at the Campbell Parade, you will find many inviting cafes where you can feast on fresh orange juice, muesli, cooked breakfast and freshly baked, warm muffins. My favourite place for breakfast and brunch is “Trio” at North Bondi. Breathtaking views spoil you eyes while you can enjoy a sumptuous start of the day.
