cosmic brights

It appears that the weather gods don't like me very much these days, because on the one day of the week I do a photoshoot (Saturday) I either get torrential rain or scorching sun. The former's obviously a huge killjoy (no, I do not have the artistic nor practical capacity to take decent photos standing in rain) and the latter just makes you want to go out in a singlet and shorts. What about a bikini shoot? HA I've only worn a bikini once in my entire lifetime and that was when the beach was pretty much empty and it was after sunset so pretty dark. So to take photos in one is an impossible dream for now, until I meet up with Miranda Kerr and negotiate some sort of binding, non-repudiable body-swap arrangement.

So yes it was a bummer at first to deal with another hot and sticky day because I've been really itching to wear my recently purchased galaxy jacket! I always envisioned it with an essentially black outfit to do justice to the origin of the design. But it's been so hot and sunny that I didn't think such an outfit would suit the weather. However I've had a few epiphanies over the past week which has led me to be a lot more confident about my future. (in my previous post I mentioned being kind of down about a few things). As a result, I'm laughing more, talking to people more, being more optimistic, and riding along with this shift in attitude is the increased desire to take risks, and not caring too much if those risks lead to unsuccessful consequences.

Thus resulting in me deciding to wear the galaxy jacket and actually pair it up with something completely different to what I had in mind- white rather than black, girly and feminine rather than edgy, and bright candy pink heels rather than boots. It's not the safest idea but personally I quite liked the chiffon on chiffon and I've always loved the crochet design on the shorts, however I've worn them.

I know, it's a pretty superficial and petty example of the recent improvements in my outlook and state of mind haha. I also really want to thank all the really sweet and thoughtful comments in my last post. All the kind words definitely helped lift my mood and made me realise others have been in the same boat. I'm going to try really hard to continue being positive! :)

  3. Beautiful photos as always! And the pieces surprisingly go really well! I would never think of matching a galaxy jacket with bright pink heels. Thats a really nice jacket too, now I'm tempted to go get one.. :p..

    Australian weather gets on my nerves too. I actually envy the fact that you get rain over there, because here in WA its been scorching hot for the past couple of weeks! It would be nice to just not wear anything, but well, I'm not going to do that.. :p

    Also, I don't think your example is superficial. Different people have different ways of doing things and its what suits you right? :) Plus, I see it as a small step to something greater.

  4. Despite going for a more light and flowy look, it still goes together really well!
    And that is so good that you were able to cheer up and become more optimistic :) There are many trials and hardships but you are definitely not alone ^^

  23. Heck no would you catch me posting bikini photos on my blog either! Even when I was skinny, I wouldn't do it! LOL. I really like the jacket paired with the crochet shorts. It's a mix of textures that I think works really well. I love your shoes too! Such a fun bright color. I've yet to find any bright pink heels that I like. I am in definite need of spring shoes though. So I need to hurry! Do you know of any place that sells those AA 3D mesh top look-a-likes? I've checked ebay and I'm kind of scared to buy from them because I don't know if I"m going to have to pay a lot in customs or whatever. But I thought you might know since you knew about the House of Harlow inspired necklace. Hope you have a great day! <3

  35. Love the photoshoot!! The galaxy jacket looks really nice against the white chiffon top!

    Just a matter of curiousity - what do you wear at the beach if you don't wear bikinis? A one piece seems a bit odd amongst the sea of bikini wearers haha. ;p

    1. thanks! I don't really go into the water so I'll just tan my legs on the sand in my regular shorts + tee. Yes, I hate wearing bikinis that much.

  62. Your picture against the beautiful blue skies is breathtaking! It was clever to style the pink shoes with your galaxy jacket--essentially taking a color from the jacket and weaving it into your entire outfit!
