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?
Hehe! Love the name of that hair style! You look great and the outfit looks like it would be nice and cool for a hot day. I’ve been freaking out a little, I’m back in Melbourne on the 23rd for 2ish weeks, and my boyfriend doesn’t have air con! :S
Thanks a bunch. I really love playing around with braids at the moment, and this kept all my hair off my neck.
