Having one of those days when you know you’ve got stuff to do and people to see but you’re not exactly sure where your day will take you? Brunch with the girls could easily morph into an impromptu shopping trip (stranger things have happened) which of course turns into appies followed by a quick stop in at the breweries to meet up with the guys. When you’re out and about, you never really can go wrong with a classic denim, sweater and ankle boots combo. Top with a show-stopping jacket that looks just as fab done up and as it does undone (just in case you get hot) and a luxurious shoulder bag and you’re set for whatever your day throws at you.
