summer skater


Don't be fooled by these bright, summer-esque photos- on this very rare occasion Sydney was hit by a totally unprecedented, anomalous scorcher of a day in the midst of a cool autumn. I thought we might as well pretend it's one of the warmer months, and I found it the perfect opportunity to pull out my new MinkPink skater skirt! The bright jade colour in the form of a fun, flared skater shape evoked exactly the playful, cheery summer vibe I wanted to capture and trick you all with, hehe.

As for the rest of the outfit, my aim that day was to make all the little things count. The floral bustier I wore with the skirt would've looked a little dull without the additional accessories. It was the light-framed sunnies propped on top of my head that gave it more of a beachy feel, the light pink woven clutch to add a more sophisticated touch, and the pastel purple belt to break up the outfit yet also complement the spring colour tones. Hot weather doesn't always have to kill the impact of an outfit.

  56. Love the skirt! Nice blog, btw. I'm always wondering what to wear underneath skirts like that to avoid flashing. I think regular panties aren't good for skirts like that. I can only think of boyshorts and nylon tailored briefs that are a better fit for skirts. What would you suggest? Do you know if there are something longer than boyshorts and briefs? I always avoid wearing skirts for these reasons. Thanks.

  99. Such a pretty and feminine outfit, the colour of the skirt is amazing! I also have to say that the pictures your boyfriend makes are really beautiful, it must be very difficult to capture the light the way he does!
    And thank you so much for the compliment, Izzy! It makes me very happy to hear that people like my drawings :) I am using a drawing software and a tablet to make my pictures because I cannot work with colours very well, i. e., I find it hard to paint with watercolours or other media, however the older pictures on my blog are drawn on paper, you can actually see it. Normally I use just black pencils or pens.
