Australian rising star Christopher Esber has made his way into my save folder on instagram more times than I can say. His mix of effortless minimalism and and extravagant details just catches my eye every time and the Spring Summer collection 2020 is no exception.
Since live at the moment isn’t very inspiring to write about, I thought I’d share with you how my upcoming month could look like, if the virus hadn’t kept us prisoners in our own houses. Tag along.
Hi! It’s me – your soon to be bride and co-founder of Hobnob Journal. If life would not revolve around got getting contained by a vicious virus, I’d be all over the plans for our wedding in the end of the summer. So, let’s pretend that I am.
This could be me the night before the big day, couldn’t it? I know it’s pretty untraditional but hey I love untraditional. And I don’t mind showing some bellybutton. At least not when there is not a church in the equation. So, rehearsal dinner outfit? Check.
This pale yellow suit is a typical Saturday on town for me. I like dressing up for the weekend, even if it’s just any other weekend. It feels so festive. I’d probably wear it with sneakers or platform sandals though. I rarely wear heels when I’m out and about on the town, it’s so unpractical. You see, one must choose the ways to be unpractical in otherwise life will be though. So, me this suit, sneakers and maybe some shopping in-between lunch and afternoon wine.
Oh my god, did someone say day party? I thought so!
It’s around lunch time a warm Saturday in late May or maybe beginning of June. I get into this little Zebra two-piece and choose to be bold instead of safe by wearing one white and one black strappy sandal. I jump on my bike (yes this is a bike appropriate outfit) and go downtown to meet with some friends at out favorite little restaurant. When I arrive they are all already there and wave at me with an ice-cold Aperol Spritz. We eat lunch, gossip loud and laugh like the stupid pandemic never existed. When we are done, we all ride our bikes in the flowery afternoon haze to a friends house a couple of blocks away. She sees us from the big balcony (and everyone else sees her too bc the music is fucking loud) and wave for us to come upstairs. When we get up we are welcomed with foggy Martinis and invited to choose music (we always pick all the good 80s songs) all afternoon. All of a sudden it’s dark outside but the wind is still warm. We order pizza and when the music stops playing we sit among huge pillows all night and talk about the year we’ve had so far and how great and covid-19 free it has been.
Oh and speaking of wedding! This too would make a great wedding dress. Maybe for the afterparty? No you know what, I’m packing it for my honeymoon. To wear to lunch at the beach club where the rosé glasses seem to have no bottoms and the pasta tastes like little drops of heaven.
