Last Friday, on my precious day off, I met up with two of my female friends for an overdue catch up over brunch at a cafe in the city. We talked about travel, and wished we could be in New York; Milan; Prague… Basically any other cool city rather than Sydney.
Is this human nature? That people are constantly seeking change? As the weather changes; our mood seems to change with it.
As much as I’d love to be ‘somewhere exotic’, filling my Instagram with breathtaking pictures, I do think that autumn is the most beautiful and pleasant season in Sydney.
The days are still warm; air is dry and crispy at nights and early mornings. While mosquitos suddenly disappear, our scarves have started to reappear.
It’s also a golden season, the sun’s rays are rich and warm, unlike summer, where the light is harsh and it washes out everything.
When my friends left the cafe, I sat alone reading some fashion magazines while watching people come and go. Feeling inspired, I took a walk through some Sydney shopping arcades and even walked to Chinatown for some indie cutting edge inspiration.
Everywhere I went, the windows called out to me: BUY BUY BUY!!! But I ended up returning home empty handed.
The visual displays of fashion were telling me to change my wardrobe, however, I have decided to revisit it instead of renewing it.
If change is our nature, then perhaps restyle of my vintage is the ‘new change’ for me this autumn.
