Brazillian fashion boutique Melko has a knack of bringing colourful, exotic and comfortable pieces to brighten our typically all noir Melbourne wardrobes. I’ve been the proud owner of a couple of Totem pieces over the years (see Exhibit A and B). The fun prints, fluid lines and relaxed shapes transport me to a tropical destination every time I wear them, and this Felicita shirt is no exception.

Most of us yearn for and look forward to taking a break from the daily grind, especially if an exotic destination is involved. But I was thinking the other day, we don’t need to wait for a holiday to ‘take a break’. We can take a break from certain things in life that are not good for us. For example, toxic thoughts and toxic habits. We can take a break at lunch time and reconnect with nature, or take a break from technology by simply catching up with real people. Simple acts of breaking away from certain routines can refresh us just like mini-vacations!
Recently a pair of dear friend of ours announced their impending overseas wedding. I can’t believe this will be our second destination weddings this year! The first was in Majorca, Spain, in case you missed this post. We feel so privileged, honoured and grateful. No doubt this Totem shirt will be a sweet travel companion thanks to its cheerful print and versatility to be able to be paired with everything from denim to khaki. Plus, it can self-iron in the humid weather :)
Vacation is a state of mind, especially when you dress the part.
