Hot Inspiration

Holidays are finally here! So hopefully I can post more consistently on this blog (though I still have a bunch of reading and study to get through to be ready for next year). It has been so unbelievably hot here, north of 40˚C almost every day. It's utterly disgusting and pretty well too hot to go outside, let alone shoot anything outside. I went on a landscaping job for two days and got so horrifically sunburnt that I just spent the rest of the week in bed trying not to move because I was in so much pain. 
For now, I'll try taking some pictures inside, and hopefully the weather is cooler by the time my boyfriend gets back from his road trip in a few weeks so we can shoot some things properly.
I cannot adequately express how much I want for it to be winter.  

Below are some pictures I've collected recently for inspiration.

Old Plaid


Hat: Indy C
Dress: Thrifted
Shoes: Guapa Mia (local store)


First post in months! 
So many apologies, I've gotten so lazy and have been super caught up in coursework. 
This is a quick post with photos taken quite a long time ago. They're not the best quality, but I will be taking more soon hopefully. 
This dress is amazing, its so cool and perfect for the hot Australian weather. I got it from an op-shop here in town, and I love the print, I'm always on the lookout for anything plaid (although there are very few stores in our town, so good pieces are relatively hard to come across). I sometimes also wear this dress with a band tee over the top, tied up at the back, to break up the print as I feel it can be a bit overwhelming on its own. 
These platform sandals are also from a new store in town called Guapa Mia, they're the perfect 90's chunky sandal. I adore any kind of platform shoe as not only are they gorgeous, but they make short people (like me) seem taller, without the hurt and danger for the uncoordinated that comes with wearing heels. The hat is from Indy C, and although you can't see it in the pictures, it has a beautiful bird feather band.

I will try to post as often as I can from now on and to make up for my absence, I will be hosting a small giveaway soon.
Hope you're having a fantastic day!

Daria Tshirt! Just a quick photo I took to show off this great Daria crop I made! I used a method similar to this one here. Formatting is weird on here, you can check out the properly sized image on Lookbook here.

This is the last week I have left at school until holidays, and I still have a bunch of assignments to get through (yay for poor time management skills!). In good news, it's finally started to cool down here, which means I can start co-ordinating winter outfits (!) I have a million jackets that I can finally start wearing. Winter is really my favourite season, I'm way too happy for the cool change! 
Hope your day is nice and cool!

Now listening to: Michicant by Bon Iver (for some easy listening)

March Playlist


Last day of March, I am actually so poor with deadlines (probably why I'm so stressed about getting all my coursework in this week). I haven't had time to write about these songs, but here they are, purely for your listening pleasure! 

How did you guys spend your easter? I had an amazing weekend, went to a metal concert (which was amazing fun) and then straight to this fantastic party, which was so much fun and I met so many new people! Then today,  I went to the most amazing easter party ever today. We sat around eating sacrificial dishes and watching a screenings of Jesus Christ Superstar, and I honestly cannot think of a better way to celebrate! If you haven't watched the Jesus Christ Superstar film, you must, its fantastic. I hope you all had an amazing easter! 
Here's a pretty cruisey playlist for all of you who also went to metal gigs this weekend (my ears are still recovering).
