The weather is crazy. Five Australian states are flooded. 75 percent of Queensland is a disaster zone and one third of Victoria is flooded. You can donate to the QLD Premier’s flood appeal here. And register to volunteer to clean up QLD.
Melbourne has been humid for a lot of the week. It’s usually dry heat this time of the year. It was 96 percent humidity at times! I know there are so many more Australians suffering to a greater extent than me, so I don’t want to complain. But the humidity and heat has made me so sore. My skin feels wet. And hard to move. And infected. It’s not nice. On the upside, the humidity styled my curls well!
Alas, I have had to work out the best outfits that would keep me cool, warm and covered. And to dry out my legs at one stage. Complicated.
Thursday: work then meeting for camp later this week. As hot as it was, I had to wear opaque stockings to stop my legs from exposure to nasties. I don’t know whether the stockings did the trick or not. Very sore.
I was sore and a bit miserable. My photographer said I was very serious and strict.
Skirt from Target, top from Temt, tshirt from Sussan, shoes from Diana Ferrari, headband from Witchery, necklace from Etsy, red purse from Olga Berg and pink camera case by a French brand by a shop in Yarraville.
Friday: work. It rained buckets in the city. It was hot then cold then warmed up. It was so wet that I only had time for one photo, crammed into a small undercover space.
Dress and cardi from Temt, tshirt and bird necklace from Sussan, purple singlet from Giordano, bangles from Diva, borrowed umbrella (I always assume vaseline and curly hair will keep me dry – but my theory always fails!).
I had this for lunch: lamb, spinach, tomato and tzatziki pizza.
Friday night: dinner at Tom Phat.
I needed nude stockings to air my legs. I don’t know if it did the trick as they were still sore at the end of the night.
was excited demanded to be photographed in front of the Daryl Braithwaite poster. He is another old time Aussie rocker I love.And I laughed that his poster was next to a unicorn painting when my favourite song of his is Horses.
It’s a pity the concert has already passed.
Saturday: breakfast with Jentopia (review to come).
It was lovely weather on Saturday – not hot and humid like it had been through the week. But my skin was still very sore so it was a good choice of outfit – soft and stretchy.
The dress is by Elly M and I bought it at quite a reduced price from a boutique I discovered in Albury at Christmas time. It has an interesting textured vest attached – scrunched satin.
Leggings from Target (I like their silver studs on the ankle), Witchery sunglasses free with a magazine, tshirt from Jeanswest, necklaces from Tiger Tree and Etsy, headband from Mimco, shoes from Diana Ferrari, bag from Forever New.
That’s it. You are now up to date.
In other news, I am hoping my costume arrives from eBay in time for camp. How awesome is this!
I really want the chance to legitimately wear bear ears!
