Post Christmas Shopping

I’ve been sharing our couple of days in Melbourne with you and if you know me then you know it would be nearly impossible for me to go to Melbourne without doing a little post-Christmas shopping!

After our lunch at Parliament House but before we stopped at this cute place called Madame Brussels for drinks, I had a stroll up Collins Street. Mostly because I wanted to stop at Chanel for some new perfume but also because I just love to wander by all the designer shops.

Seems I couldn’t resist Ralph Lauren either!

Signature Perfume: I have been wearing 31 Rue Cambon by Chanel for a while now. It’s definitely one of my favourites and I would consider it my signature scent. However, I like to have a lighter fragrance for really hot weather or for those days when my mood dictates a change. For a few years that has been No. 22 by Chanel but it was time for a change so while purchasing another bottle of 31 Rue Cambon I also bought a bottle of Jersey.

Robins Egg blue Ralph Lauren Silk Pants

My Obsession: You may remember me obsessing over these pants by Ralph Lauren. I loved the robin’s egg blue colour, the fact that they were beautifully tailored, and 100% silk. The only problem was that I looked everywhere for them and they were sold out or not available, which was heart-breaking.

Mint Green Ralph Lauren pants

The Next Best Thing: So when I saw this mint green pair AND they were 30%, I did what I had to. And bought them! They are the usual Ralph Lauren beautiful fit and as a tallish person they are long enough to wear with a great pair of heels. I’m really looking forward to styling these and sharing some photos with you all.

I’m going to have to review a board I did on Pinterest about mint so I can get some fabulous inspiration!

Did you do any post-Christmas shopping? Or are you waiting for something special?
