Baby, In the Summertime...



(Shorts by Finders Keepers, Blouse by Urban Outfitters, Bag by Foley+Corinna, Sandals by Windsor Smith, Ring by YSL 
and Sunglasses by Ray Ban)


I have been pretty depressed over the last couple of weeks due to the fact that Summer is over and the chill of Autumn has descended. But instead of windy days and falling leaves we (the Sydney-ites, -ains, -ese) have received a warm happiness-inducing, sun-soaked last few days, reminiscent of the classic Aussie Summer we kind-of but didn't really get this year. And of course, we did what any self respecting Sydney-ite would do - we headed straight for the glorious golden sands and stunning rolling surf of Bondi Beach!

In this post I am wearing these amazing Finders Keepers shorts which I had hoped to do a post on over the Summer, but didn't get the chance. I just love the palm tree graphic print and the orange and blue just go together so harmoniously. They are the perfect contrast of colours which remind me of a burnt orange sun against a perfect painted blue sky. I paired these shorts with this funky shoulder cut-out blouse from Urban Outfitters, orange mini-tote by Foley+Corinna, strappy sandals by Windsor Smith, ring by YSL and for the pièce de résistance, these amazing and effortlessly cool reflector aviators by Ray Ban.

So before the summer is truly long gone, I thought I'd dedicate a song to it's departure - 'In the Summertime' by Thisty Merc. The lyrics describe perfectly how I will feel for the next 9 months.
