Mount Lawley Saturdays

It is becoming a tradition that every Saturday whilst my brother is here that we explore new areas in Perth. Our aim is to get lost. If we know where we are we ain't trying hard enough. So yesterday we decided to tackle Mount Lawley. My look for the day was comfy casual and cool enough for the first warm spring day that we have had in a while. 
Skirt by River Island - 40.00 GBP approx.
Topshop Vest - 18.00 GBP
Cotton On Cardigan - $19.98 AUD
Back Drop is bold piece by Beastman, Numskull and Creepy in an alley way just of Beaufort street. Features punch colours and smooth lines, i am in love with this piece. For more photos of this Peice click on this link which will take you directly to City of Walls
Originally set up in 2011 City of walls was created with the aim to promote and inspire street art in WA. 

"City of Walls focuses on a range of creative practises in urban places including street and graffiti art, murals, paste-ups, stencils and stickers, temporary installations, lighting and projection projects, and other urban interventions.
City of Walls aims to connect artists, businesses and councils and has led to a number of unused and lacklustre wall spaces being transformed in Perth, Fremantle, Midland and the Pilbara." (City of Walls, 2014)

Places visited in Mount Lawley:

Cantina 663 -  Further up Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley Cantina 663 is a popular and exciting spot serving seasonal food and smooth coffee, from breakfast all the way through to dinner. If you are going for breakfast I highly recommend the polenta porridge with apple Dulce DE Leche and cinnamon. If you are also a soy fiend like me, you have to try their latte. As I am writing this i am getting increasingly hungry.

Beaufort Street Merchant - I am a huge fan of this place and proud to admit it is a regular on my date night list, love all they have to offer on all of their menu's including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Only time I have been disappointed there is when they took polenta chips of the menu for a short time :(. I highly recommend the following: Breakfast - Green Scrambled Eggs. Lunch - The Smoked Salmon Salad or the Pulled Pork Bagel, this was deemed the best bagel my brother has ever had. Dinner - Butterfield Scotch Fillet with a side of baby potatoes, brussels sprouts, truffle mayo and capers. Wash it down with one of the best espresso martinis that I have ever had :)
