In Melbourne, it’s morning. 8:30AM in fact as I start to write this post. For probably the first time ever, I’m blogging from a public space – at a university library. Now normally I never ever blog in public because it just feels weird to be going through a website of photos of yourself. However as it’s week 1 of uni today, nobody has any reason to come to uni at 8AM in the morning to study, so no one has. Except me, but I’m not here to study. So as I suspiciously hunch over my laptop, I’m going to try and bring you a new post before people start streaming in – which I think will be a while so hopefully this works out!

I’ve been wanting to share with you a new brand I’ve discovered – Milk from a Thistle, a Sydney based label with the most beautiful, clean cut, quirky print collections. I love that they are also Australia based and Australia made. I was so excited to see the Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook filled with digital woodland prints, fruit prints and mahogany leather that I knew I wanted to feature something from their collection straight away. These fruit printed harem pants were a favourite of mine – they remind me of a pair of baggy vintage floral pants that I once altered into harem style pants. I really love the look of a pair of printed harems and I just know that I’ll be really embracing them this S/S. And I’ve got a soft spot for fruit too – I seem to have a thing for anything nature related or inspired – even using pears in my headpieces. So these pants? I really can’t fault. I’m in love.
