when summer hides away.

Seed shorts, Cotton On blouse, Sheike blazer, Midas loafers.

There seem to be this global envy around Sydney summers. My now 3 summers in Sydney have gone as followed:

  • 1st. So hot that all you ever wanted to wear was sandles and a hat. This excludes all other clothing.
  • 2nd. Rained a total of 5 days a week for the whole of summer. It also never actually got hot. Just wet, windy & cold.
  • 3rd. This summer appears to be confused about weather it is winter or summer. Today is 19 degrees with thunderstorms, yesterday was 29 degrees with a humidity of 92%.

See nothing to be really envious over. Especially since I find it mighty frustrating to leave my house in the morning in a singlet and skirt to only need and umbrella, gumboots, and a duffle jacket by 6pm.

Anywho. These photos are a month or so old from when I was finishing uni up. This is my go to outfit for ‘I’m having a tired/shit/stressed day. They are my fat day culottes, since we all know by now that I don’t do pants, let alone pants on my fat days.

Hopefully I start blogging a bit more now that distressing life events are done with.

stress be gone.

Pretty sure all I ever talk about on here is the stress of university, and the stress of fitting everything else around it. Well I for one am both excited and stressed to say it ends in 3 weeks! Holy cow I have a lot of work to do in that time but gosh crossing that finish line will be an amazing feeling.

Today was a lazy dress day. I had to cart a huge tote and another massive bag into the city as I went to shoot in the studio at uni for my final major project. It’s all about ‘story telling’, which obviously translates to me as fables and fairy tales. I’m rather enjoying it, my shoulders aren’t though. Can’t wait to go and get the film developed and see the real end results, it was shot on a hasselblad which has been an amazing experience in it’s self.

Alaska and I went to Cockatoo Island to the biennale. Only we spent most of the time sitting on amazingly flat rocks in the sun. Saw little art. Maybe I’ll go back when I’m not in a lazy mood. Trying to spend what little I have of the holidays left relaxing, that is when I’m not working.

Please ignore my stubby nails. I had a biting attack at work last week. Retail does awful things to me. Feel free to laugh at my attempt to flip you all off while wearing a knuckle ring. I’m a fool sometimes.

Right now I’m debating whether I want to see Dark Knight Rises midnight opening. Downside; I’ll be by myself. Upside; I don’t really mind. Currently watching the Watchmen long cut, I finished the comics the other day, pretty damn amazing.
