Today I had a realization – not a groundbreaking one – but it occurred to me that I’ve been living in Sydney for close to a year now, and yet I feel like there’s still so much more of this city that I haven’t experienced, streets I haven’t lazily wandered down, suburbs I’m yet to eat my way through. That saying really is true, time does fly when you’re having fun.

Given that it’s Friday (or Fri-Yay! depending on which way you look at it), I thought I’d share an outfit that I wore the other week, when the weather was a little cooler. I’ve been finding that having a Lover store so perilously close to my apartment (it’s a short bus or bike ride away) is proving to be dangerous, given how incapable I am of walking out empty-handed. The Boxing Day sales only added to the temptation, and I ended up leaving the shop with this picnic-perfect cotton broderie lace midi skirt. Phew, that was a mouthful!

While I’m not quite game enough to wear this on an actual picnic yet (grass stains, spilled food, or worse – wine sloshing out of the glass!), the pretty broderie lace is just begging to be worn during the balmy summer evenings. The best part? It was the last one in my size; meant to be, right?

    That skirt is soooo pretty!! Luckily I don’t have any really dangerous stores near me, ha ha. Unless you count Marshalls, but a lot of time I don’t find anything in there I HAVE to have (unless there is a new selection of Marc Jacobs stuff)

    Meant to be for sure! It’s such an incredibly pretty piece and suits your style so well. This whole mix is just so lovely on you!!

    Oh to have a Lover store in the state let alone near by!! Le sigh. Love the whole look, you dress in a very elegant way that suits the heat.

      Hey Steph – I did pop in today and nabbed a skirt I’d been after and a bikini. Thinking of going back again tomorrow because the swimwear was SO cheap. Did you?

    Can you please tell me what color those kitten heels are and which department store may carry it as each store sells specific valentino colors.
