I am currently in Sydney visiting my American friend, Julie (pictured above). She has great personal style, is especially fond of vintage shopping and isn’t afraid to take risks with her clothing.
Julie is a passionate ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher who is also fluent in Spanish and loves to travel (we met in Peru!) Her love of baking delicious cookies and cooking in general makes visiting her such a pleasure.
It was a hot Saturday in Sydney but we decided to walk to the Surry Hills Market, which specialises in handmade, second-hand and recycled goods. Although I didn’t find any bargains Julie found 2 items of clothing for only $5 each!
I love the hidden street art in Sydney and the old buildings that have so much character. I dream of living in an old vine covered building with cast iron railings…
The rest of the afternoon consisted of reading in the shade and enjoying the rooftop patio as the sun set with a lovely glass of wine (I was wearing Julie’s adorable red hat which was a gift from one of her students).
