Contrasting Colours & Moroccan Inspired Motif

Hi everyone! What a dreary day today has been, and such a contrast to the beautiful warm weather we've received over the weekend! The difference is like day and night. No matter how many years I have lived in Melbourne, it still surprises me sometimes the way our weather turns on us. It's like a child's emotion - unpredictable =P.

Hopefully you took advantage of the beautiful weather over the weekend and basked yourself in the sunshine! Since the weekend was so beautiful, I decided to enjoy it with some beautiful colours myself. I don't have many highly patterned pieces in my wardrobe, but the ones I do owe are quite "loud" pieces. I adore this silk top. It is soft, flowy and super colourful, just the way I like it and perfect for the warm weather.
What I really love about this top is the fact that it tells me a story. It talks to me about a place or a culture that I don't know very much about, and inspires me to go and learn about it. If you take a close look at the pattern, you may realise that it makes a strong cultural reference. Incorporating cultural inspiration in the clothes that we wear is a very traditional practice and one that is still exercised to date.

The motif on this top is Moroccan inspired and true to its style, very bohemian and relaxed. The clever juxtaposition of contrasting colours, spicy red with steel blue is a rich and exotic combination that brings us right back to where it all started...

Perhaps a holiday to Morocco is not too far away =P
