Blazing

I haven't done an outfit post in a while, so here's what I wore to lunch today. Bad choice - that high waist traps a lot of heat and it was just my luck that I caught a tin-can train with no aircon (Sydneysiders know what I'm talking about). It was also the first time I've worn these loafers (from my USA haul), which means I'm now missing a bit of skin over my Achilles tendon. Ouch.




T-shirt from Ralph Lauren, watch c/o Daniel Wellington, shoes from Bass. The label on the shorts says Rest In Peace, but I don't think this brand exists anymore. Also wearing my one true love of lipsticks, MAC's Russian Red, which stays on while I'm eating (i.e. all the time).

As you might have picked up, I do a lot of complaining about the heat, so it might seem a bit odd that I'm going to The Whitsundays in two weeks! They're a group of tropical islands off Queensland; you might have heard of Hamilton Island or Whitehaven Beach. It was actually YY and Jaz's idea, I'm tagging along because I want somewhere to go. I'm getting really excited though - I'm looking forward to doing some snorkelling!

  1. Lovely outfit! I swear by Russian Red, that stuff doesn't budge. I'm so jealous of the heat and your snorkeling trip!

  2. I need to get me some loafers like that, I've worn my leather ones so much they are falling apart (still love them though!).

    It looks so warm there, it's snowing here so it's been incredibly cold. You look fantastic and are making me want to wear shorts. Come on spring/summer!

  3. The thought of breaking in shoes always terrifies me (definitely lots of skin lost in the process). Nevertheless, your shoes look fantastic so hopefully it was worth it. Going to some tropical islands sounds fantastic, if you have to suffer through this weather, might as well do it on a beach.

    Too bad about the blisters! D: The colour of the lipstick is very nice! :3

  5. "Tin can train" is the perfect description! I hate those trains especially in the heat. Wow yay have fun at Whitsundays! I'm so jealous you're going, I have assessments in 2 weeks lol

  6. So cute, love the shorts. I hate breaking in shoes - I've been wearing a pair of boots incessantly this past week and I think they're FINALLY beginning to stop rubbing. I'm so jealous you're off to the Whitsundays, have you been before? It's so beautiful up there, I went on a school camp a few years ago, kayaking around some of the islands. Have fun!!

  7. I just discovered your blog—really great layout and photography. I have those same Bass loafers; breaking them in was painful, and after more than a year, they're still just a tad too tight!

  8. This outfit looks really great, I especially love the loafer & Daniel Wellington's watch. Hope you'll have a great time soaking up the sun at the island. It sounds really exciting, I miss the sunny days here in my country. Have a wonderful day :)

  12. I laughed at "tin can", they're the worst especially on ridiculously hot days. And I'm so jealous, have lots of fun at the Whit Sunday Islands! My friend went a few weeks ago and came back 10x more tanned :) She did say the snorkelling was the best though, so have lots of fun, and I can't wait to see all your photos :)

  13. Ugh, yes, that is my least favorite part of breaking in a new pair of shoes. I just know that one part of my skin will be suffering heavily for it. >.< but! Those loafers do look marvelous. So hopefully they were worth the pain. (:
