A Lesson Learnt

'Bella' blouse: c/o Junk Clothing (here)
Sunflower shorts: c/o Motel Rocks
Oxfords: c/o Le Bunny Bleu (similar style here)
Classic Bristol Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington (here)

So these photos were taken in quite possibly the worst conditions possible...I got up early to take pics in my usual spot, and I was greeted by the craziest mosquito attack! They were actually humungous and there were multiple ones on my arm/leg at once. I stubbornly kept going with my photos because I wanted to get at least a few decent shots, and when I rushed home I saw that the bites had developed into huge boil-like things on my skin :( It was pretty terrifying seeing myself in the mirror lol. I took some pills for it and thankfully they lessened the swelling because I was having a major allergic reaction. I had to edit all the mozzies out on Photoshop in my pics because just looking at them made me feel itchy all over again lol.

Kind of annoyed at my own ridiculous stubbornness- I woke up at 5am to take photos, did my makeup, travelled all the way to the park with my camera gear, and I just saw the crazy swarm of mosquitoes and just had the obstinate mentality that "I came all the way here to do something, and I'm going to get it done at all costs" lol.

Moving on to the actual reason for why I endured a crazy mozzie attack- the outfit! Spring is coming to a close over in Australia with a scorching hot summer on the way- which means neon florals and bright colours! Junk Clothing gifted me this lovely, flowy off-shoulder blouse perfect for a sunny and relaxed stroll in the garden (never mind that's not actually what went down when I took these pics lol!)

I got these adorable sheer floral overlay oxford flats from Le Bunny Bleu again- as I mentioned in my last post featuring the brand, they have a small curated collection in the store 'Drama' on 16 Goulburn St in Chinatown, Sydney CBD :) and they have a new store called 'Pretty Pumpkin' in Eastwood on 51 Rowe Street. It's a great way to get a feel for their shoes in real life, if you're planning to buy them online on their US site! :)
I'm also wearing this lovely Daniel Wellington watch called 'Classic Bristol', with a beautiful rich brown-red strap and rose gold face :) These watches are the perfect stocking stuffers! They're a timeless accessory (no pun intended) and are so versatile to pair with outfits.

  3. wow you woke up at 5 am but its worth it! The photos looks so amazing dear I lovee the short and your white blouse! So pretty :)

  4. It's crazy that in your part of the world during this time of the year, you can still wear shorts and a loose top, where as I'm in a sweater, fuzzy pajamas, underneath blankets and still freezing, haha. Great post though! Loving the shorts!

  5. Oh no I'm so sorry to hear about the mossies! I always react to their bites too, which is a shame as they love to snack on me, haha. Get so itchy in spring and summer with all the evening meals outdoors - I become a meal too, hehe!

    Lovely greets Nessa

  9. Do you take these pictures yourself? If so well done! Really well done! These are gorgeous!
    Do you not get scared someone will see you taking selfies in the park?

    I did not even realise you're also from Australia.
    I love your blog.

  11. These pictures turned out so great! I would totally have thought that they were taken there intentionally! The garden is such a great backdrop! I'm super jealous of your weather in Australia. Meanwhile, I'm freezing here in Austria. :(

  13. Love your handbag and floral shorts!


  14. Wow, such a sweet outfit. Love all the little cute details :) Need to check out that top, so romantic!

  15. For me you really have the cutest collection of shorts ever, and I really like the loose blouse with these! The mosquito allergy sounds scary, though I understand how disappointing it would have been to give up. If it was me I think I'd have changed the location though =D.

  16. Omg that is crazyyyyyyyy! Definitely something not to do again haha :P
    I was attacked by mozis last year too ..it looked like my leg was diseased v.v I literally had over 100 huge red bumps all over my legs and they itched like crazyyyyyyyy eugh! On a lighter note, your outfit looks gorgeous as always!! x
