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.
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.
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.
dinner at Tom Phat.
Temt, shorts by Mink Pink from Freez, tshirt and shoes from Myer, bag from Forever New, hairclip from Mimco, ring from Diva and necklace from Etsy.
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.
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.
Jeanswest, necklaces from Tiger Tree and Etsy, headband from Mimco, shoes from Diana Ferrari, bag from Forever New.
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!
