WHAT I WORE ON A WINDY SUMMER DAY

Hi my dear readers and fellow bloggers,

I can’t believe that we are approaching the end of the second month of the new year which means that those who live in the Northern Hemisphere will soon see the end of winter while we, in Australia are about to kiss the summer good-bye.  This year it has been so unusually hot that I secretly wish it would end already.  It seems that as I get older, it’s becoming harder and harder to keep my cool under 40 degree heat especially when the humidity is as high as almost 100% which reminds me so much of Bali weather.

Speaking of which, the dress I am wearing was purchased in Bali from one of the myriads clothing stores along the hip and trendy shopping strip of Semyniak during our most recent trip to the “Island of Gods”.

Usually I avoid buying clothes in navy or dark blue colour but I was so attracted by the bright colours of the flower pattern of the dress that I decided to try it on.  The moment I slid its spaghetti straps over my shoulders, I immediately liked what I saw – how this dress with its simple shape effortlessly slipped down my body lightly following its contours without any restrictions.  It felt light and breezy and very nice and I bought it.  Surprise, surprise.

The day these photos were taken, was a warm Sunday afternoon in Sydney and my husband and I have decided to take a casual after lunch stroll around the marina.

I smartly put on my super comfortable, if not very stylish, thick sole casual sandals but I am sure that this dress will also look good if I chose to propel myself on heels (will keep you posted on that).

Ever since I came to inherit a number of vintage scarfs, I tend to take one just in case. A girl never knows when she might need it.  As it turned out, I did use it but in rather unexpected way.  As we were walking along the pier, a sudden gust of wind swept over the harbour and gave me a great idea for a photo shoot.   My apologies for the images that are not of the best quality and look overexposed but the sun's position was really tricky.
