sink or swim

(Cotton On bikini separates, Roy & Bon (lol) mirrored Wayfarers from Bali)

This is one of the several bikinis I wore while in Bali last week. I love the Indian inspired fluoro zig-zags on the bottoms. I really like pairing bikini separates, it doesn't bother me at all if they don't match, in fact I think it's really cute. Are you a matching bikini kinda gal?

Heat Storm is on facebook!

Hi guys, just wanted to invite you to join me on Facebook. Today's fashion question is: How old is your oldest piece of clothing? Please head over there and let me know!

I'm heading to Sydney today and on to Bali tomorrow, so I might not have a chance to post until Oct 29. Hope you all have an awesome week!

walking forward

Work and play for the last couple of months. Just found out I'm going to get a killer tax return this year, already fantasising about some new chelsea boots and a few more pairs of heels. It's time to re-think the past and head towards the future!

aqua cut-offs

(thrifted cable knit sweater, Jay Jay X DIY aqua denim cut-offs)

These used to be pants but I hacked the legs off and then left them crumpled in a bleach bath for a few days last year. A process I could have described less psychotically.

Vintage T shirt

(vintage tee, Mink Pink distressed denim shorts, Valleygirl sunglasses)

I'm not usually a huge fan of printed tees but this one is perfect for me. I'm always drawn to bright blues, and the tropical theme really caps it off for me. Also the sleeves are slightly longer than usual, and more slim fitting, which is important to me as it balances my broad shoulders somewhat. Vintage tees are also so super-soft that I find myself thinking I could wear variations on this outfit all Summer long. It was comfy enough to go adventuring out at the Cotter river last weekend. If you don't know what adventuring is, it's like hiking but you sort of stay off the trail and you have to climb over at least one tree trunk which has fallen over a body of water. That part is key. My legs are now totally devestated with scratches and also I manged to get stung by some evil plant (like poison ivy I guess?). Totally worth it.

Anyways, I would like to hear about the coolest t shirt you have in your possession, please share!

Mink Pink distressed denim cut-offs

A close up of a new addition in case anyone else is as obsessed with denim shorts as I am. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here.

welcome to the sixties

It's hard not to think of the sixties when you see such a vast expanse of daisies, and I so wanted to roll around in this one and also to do a dreamy photo shoot, naturally. But since I was at Floriade (an annual flower show that is the pride and joy of Canberra in a completely non-lame way - seriously I think it must be our biggest tourist draw card) that was kind of out of the question.
