Need some outfit inspiration for this Long Weekend?
When it comes to long weekends, the countdown for it's arrival usually starts well in advance but with any event as exciting as an extra day to play, we know it's easy to leave the two key main factors until the very last minute: how you'll be spending the long weekend and more importantly, what you'll be wearing!
We've checked the weather forecast and it's going to be glorious sunshine all weekend 'round, reaching up to 30 degrees in some states! So with this in mind, we created a special edit for you with 3 outfits for 3 different occasion and matched them up with everything fun that is happening in your City over the long weekend.
All good weekends should start with a delicious breakfast and a great outfit - and these two outfits are the epitome of smart-casual with the perfect balance between looking sharp and feeling relaxed.
This one is also the perfect ensemble to take from day to night if you've double booked your Saturday plans and need to go from Brunch by the Beach in the morning to Afternoon Drinks on a Rooftop Bar in the City. We kept the accessories super simple with a pair of slides, sunglasses and a backpack so don't forget to pick up some fresh flowers, a cronut or a coffee at your local markets to complete your weekend and your look.
Our Favourite Brunch Hot Spots are:
Sydney - The Grounds of Alexandria, Rubys Diner, Porch and Parlour and The Paramount Coffee Project.
Melbourne - Seven Seeds, Archies All Day, Top Paddock, Smiths and Daughters and Combi.
Brisbane - Kettle & Tin, Pablo and Hop, Scotch and Beans.
