It’s been scorching hot in Melbourne the past few days. I woke up this morning in a lather of sweat, because it really didn’t cool down much overnight. At the moment I’m sitting at my desk typing while a fresh breeze wafts across my back. It feels so lovely and refreshing. I don’t mind the hot weather, but it is nice when the temperature starts to drop a little after a few steamy days.
I am wearing:
– Green and white sundress (Target)
– Tony Bianco nude heels (thrifted)
– Green and white polka dot headscarf (thrifted)
– Amethyst ring
– Teardrop pearl necklace.
– Wizard of Oz watch
There are a couple of new additions to my wardrobe in today’s outfit. The green dress that I’m wearing has been languishing at my parent’s house for a few years now. I always kept it there as an emergency dress, in case I got invited out to dinner and I needed something slightly fancy to wear. It’s from Target originally, but I made a couple of alterations to it. I put a stitch in the front of the bodice to hold it closed, because it used to gape open and show a lot more cleavage than I was happy with. It used to have spaghetti straps, but they were always sliding off my shoulders, so I made it into a halter neck.
My shoes are also new. These were one of the pairs that I got on my op-shopping trip last weekend. They’re Tony Bianco, have hardly been worn and they fit perfectly. Also, they were only $10. I was very pleased with them. They aren’t terribly comfortable, but they are lovely, so I don’t mind too much.
