WHAT I WORE FOR SUNDAY LUNCH

Hi everyone,

One of my most favourite Sunday lunch spots is Kingsleys Steak and Crab House in Sydney’s iconic Woolloomooloo’s Finger Wharf.  It has played an integral role in our rich history and just recently celebrated its 100th birthday.  A wool and cargo dock in the past, it was left unused and forgotten for decades until the late 1990’s when it received a huge refurbish and overhaul and has emerged as one of Sydney’s most exclusive eating, drinking and marina addresses.  Fronted by a contemporary hotel, the Wharf is also a residential address for a range of exclusive apartments where Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman were among its owners.

Its ideal location offers a picture-perfect view over the water and the city beyond.
It is absolutely magic to be here at night, looking at the bright blazing signs of the CBD with the skyscrapers acting as a back drop, listening to the water lapping at your feet, hearing the peels of laughter coming from the moored boats along the marina and the sounds of music from the apartments above while sampling good food and drinking good wine.
The Wharf boasts a number of world class restaurants, each of them showcasing delicious food and excellent wine lists and over time we have dined at almost all of them, yet somehow we always come back to Kingsleys.  Well, there is a very simple reason for it – we absolute love the house specialty – Salt and Pepper Mud Crab.

Our attraction to it extends to a point that whenever we have visitors from overseas, we make sure that we dine with them at Kingsleys.  This applies to our local friends too, especially to those who have never have eaten there before.  Case in point, our recent lunch with good friends Monica and Sam.

Although the restaurant serves high quality food and the service is impeccable, the atmosphere here is quite relaxed and while no particular dress code is required, people tend to dress casually yet with a sense of style and class.

My choice for this occasion was a pair of bootleg cropped pants in black and white stripes that I bought on my recent vacation in Lisbon’s airport, while waiting to change planes, together with a white V-neck loose fit blouse.  I wasn’t sure what kind of shoes to wear with these pants because I have quite slim ankles and sometimes feel conscious of not showing them too much.  While I appreciate their shape when I am wearing high heel shoes or slim-fit ankle-short pants, I am well aware that they might look a bit too skinny stuck underneath wide bottom pants.  I found the solution by putting on a pair of short blocked heel boots that covered my ankles and also gave an edgy feel to my outfit.  And to be on the fun side, I wore my silver metallic socks.

The weather was perfect, the food that we washed down with a bottle of chilled white wine was scrumptious, the company - most enjoyable, a fabulous way to spend your Sunday and get recharged for the week ahead.
