If there’s a more iconic Australian landscape than the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, we’d like to hear about it. As such, it made sense that once social distancing restrictions had started easing up in Australia that was the first place we wanted to shoot at. Making the best of a bad situation, as non-essential travel is restricted in Australia, there aren’t any tourists in Sydney which means this was probably the quietest these Aussie landmarks were ever going to be.
It was a bright and sunny Sunday so we took our time having brunch at Project 2 Waterloo before heading over to the Opera House. Throughout isolation we’ve both been supporting the Australian economy (aka. spending all our money on new clothes) so we both wanted to shoot a few new things we’d picked up.
Kristen was wearing her brand-new Femme Luxe tee paired with a treasured Topshop green plaid skirt she’d bought back in London. She’d thrown her go-to Religion black blazer over the top, and finished it off with a new pair of strappy heels from one of our faves, Billini.
Mel went for black on black on black with the same Religion blazer belted around her waist with a thick, dramatic Dolls Kill belt to emphasise her hourglass figure. Underneath she had her tried-and-true favourite Australian Fashion Labels pencil skirt teamed with a playful bustier bra from Honey Birdette. Her new favourite Wittner shoes and Moschino bag completed the look.
With social distancing restrictions now easing up around Australia, we can’t wait to get out and explore Sydney. We moved here the week before COVID-19 got quite bad in Australia, and we felt like things went from 0 to 100 really quickly, so we honestly had no idea we’d end up locked inside out houses for 3 months! If anyone has any recommendations on things to do and places to visit, we’d love to hear from you.
