I’ve just got a really quick outfit post for you today. I snapped these pictures on my way out the door to run some errands yesterday. I was in a rush to get all my work done before it got really sweltering. There’s a heat wave going on at the moment, and so I’m doing my best to stay inside and keep cool.
– Floral printed shirt from Rivers
– Cutoffs from K Mart (customized by me)
– White Havianas thongs
– White bangle (thrifted)
– Silver rings
– Mis-matched earrings (thrifted)
My summer love affair with prints continues! I got this shirt from my parents for Christmas and I love the colours. Even though it’s long-sleeved, it is deliciously light and cool. It’s great for beating the heat and protecting my shoulders from the sun.
My shorter hair has been a godsend in this hot weather. I can’t stand to have hair hanging on my neck when it’s sweltering, so I’ve been experimenting with lots of different up-dos. I’m particularly smitten with braids of all kinds. I call this hairdo “The Escargot” because it reminds me a little bit of a snail shell.
Once again, super simple makeup. I always feel hotter when I wear lots of makeup, and it’s like my skin can’t breathe. Also, there’s nothing worse than having your foundation run down your face when the temperature starts to climb. I stick to tinted moisturizers and BB creams in Summer. My skin tends to be quite clear in the summer months, so I can get away with lighter makeup.
If you’re in Australia, how are you coping with the heat?
