It’s been a little over 2 weeks here in Bondi for me & I think I’ve figured out the local “uniform.” Now mind you, Bondi Beach is a Western Beach-side suburb of Sydney, so let’s forget all the big-city-formal & office-appropriate outfit stigmas for a moment. This neighborhood is chill, relaxed, all about the outdoors & the sun, and very much understated chic. That doesn’t mean people here get sloppy, oh no…every casual “accidentally” untucked tank & ripped piece of denim is carefully calculated. Heels are nowhere to be seen (thank goodness, some well-deserved rest for my feet!), and super tight dresses are definitely not a a focus. I’m really loving it!!
Below is my take on the perfect daytime (oh, who are we kidding…this will totally work for an evening drink in Bondi as well) outfit for my current ‘hood. All items are by local Aussie designers, except for the Birkenstocks – but trust me, those good old German sandals are having a MAJOR comeback here in Sydney!!
