An open letter to... s u m m e r

Dear Summer,
Today is the first day of you, Summer, so I thought I would write a little letter to tell you my hopes for you. This is the summer that everyone remembers as 'the best time of their lives thus far' because they don't have school to worry about for the first times in their lives. Summer, I would like you to ensure that I will be one of those people. You can do this for me in a few ways:
1. Make the weather sunny and warm enough to go exploring on the many beaches of Sydney with my friends.
2. Make the weather sunny and warm so that I can run around in flimsy cotton dresses and skirts all day without a care, just like a kid.

3. Make the ocean clear and cool and ripe with many different hues of blue and green.

4. Make a smile never fleet from the faces of myself and my company....

...And let me wear clogs every day!
Thanks Summer, much appreciate it, until next time,

Tennessee ++

This summer I want to channel one of my favourite style icons, Tennessee Thomas.
The Like will be in Australia soon, but I believe they are only visiting Melbourne and Brisbane, which makes me sad as I'd love to see Tennessee in real life, all 60's-ed up with her band on stage! I'm thinking that throwing on some leopard print, stripes, pale denim dungarees, LWD's and of course some cute brogues a la Tennessee will make up for my missing The Like live.

au revoir!

A low-key w e e k e n d outfit!

O u t f i t # t w o !
I wore this outfit to Bondi Junction shopping center the other day, which was exciting as it was the first time I got to wear my new Secret Squirrel skirt!
I'm not one for visiting Westfield's, as pretty much every clothing store has exactly the same products, which isn't very inspiring at all. Bondi Junction, however is very exciting.
They have some really amazing shops which you can't find in every shopping center (read: Gormans- for beautiful clothes and Papaya- for the prettiest homewears ever...we bought our christmas tree from there!)
It was a lovely day, I LOVE the shops around Christmas time, everything is so shiny and happy.

The beginning of summer...

F r e e d o m !

(Kate, Thirza + Me)
Alright, so although it is technically not summer yet, all of us school-finishers are on a huge break, which is amazing as we have spent the majority of the year stressing and working hard completing the HSC. The weather has been all summer-ey and crazy too! All weekend it was over thirty degrees (ridiculously warm for spring) and today it has been raining like crazy! What's going on Spring?!
Lots of hanging out with various friends has lead to me having such a great time the past couple of weeks, and everyone else isn't even on break yet! In the past week, it's been really nice to go on a few picnics with my best friends, Izzie, Kate and Thirza.
Here are a few of the shots from said picnics.

An outfit straight from my m a i l b o x !

It is just about the most exciting thing when you receive something that you have bought online.
Over the past two postage days I have received the most amazing things!
I bought this beautiful pair of scalloped shorts from Alexandra Grecco's etsy store.
As soon as I watched the video on her website I knew that I had to have those shorts...I love the black ones with the ties on the sides too so perhaps I will buy a pair of those as well when they pop up online.

The other gift of amazement was my very own pair of Karen Walker Number two sunglasses!
I have wanted a pair of Karen Walker sunglasses for two years now, I just love the shapes of her shades! I also have wanted large, cat-eye sunglasses for a few years so this pair is just everything I wanted! Perfect!

Bonjour all!
Thankyou so much for being patient with me during the evil times of the HSC exams...
Now they are over and I have three months of freedom before I start University (which is pretty much just as exciting as having the three months holidays to me.)
I thought I would do my first post back about something I am hoping to embrace for summer---

R o m p e r s ♥
I love the idea of a romper- part playful, part simple, part elegant.

I love how rompers have all of the feminine simplicity of wearing a dress, I mean, dressing doesn't really get much easier than slipping on a dress, but rompers have pants which make them much more practical than a dress during summer exploring and running around.
I love the rompers below by New York based designer Alexandra Grecco.
I ordered a pair of her shorts a couple of weeks ago- I'm just waiting for them to arrive in the mail.
When they do, Ill show all of you guys!

Au revoir!
