summer dreaming

Friday, October 12, 2012

It's cold, wet and grey here today and some parts of the state have woken up to snow. Highly unusual for this time of year, to say the least. So while I spend the day inside drinking tea and reading my book, I'm dreaming of the perfect summer outfit. Here's mine:

1. Gorman Sunglasses. Love this shape and the great colours.
2. Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. I just finished reading The Happiness Project and I figure this follow up book would be a terrific summer read.
3. Etsy camisole. Antique underwear makes for the perfect summer top.
4. Madewell shorts. Can't beat a pair of worn in denim shorts.
5. Gorman backpack. The one thing on this list that I'm coveting above all else - a fashionable mochila. There's a Colombian tribe called the Wayuu who are famous for making these beautiful bags. This one is right up my alley.
6. Tan Saltwaters. My favourite summer shoes.


  1. Love that you're getting all geared up for summer! Everything just seems so fall to me right now...but a trip to the southern hemisphere to experience the warmer months sounds awesome :)

  2. Love those sunglasses!! You have the coolest taste. Seriously.

  3. Wish I could pull those sunglasses off but I know better than to even try!

    Only one thing crazier than Sydney weather- Melbourne weather. We truly have 4 seasons in one day. I retrieved my Spring/Autumn weight coat from the back of the closet a few weeks ago and we hit 28degrees! Now I'm back to wool as it is mighty chilly *sigh*

    Never mind, warmth and sunshine will be here soon enough.

  4. i recently read the happiness project too! so amazing. let me know how her next one is, i'll have to pick up a copy myself.


    (ps. thank you for the blogger advice, much appreciated!)

  5. How crazy is this weather Gaby?! So cold and windy and wet. Yuck yuck yuck

  6. I'm digging the new layout. and saltwaters really are the best, huh?

  7. So cute! I love how it is completely opposite here.

  8. My little girl just got her first pair of saltwaters and very excitedly did a tapdance whilst making up a song about "neeew sandles, neeew sandles". Think i might have to invest myself...x

  9. love those chappals, bag and goggles :))

  10. Some lovely things here...i bought those saltwaters in white last summer and wore them constantly, they are so comfortable (and gorgeous). Love them in tan. You are gearing up for summer while we are digging out of winter woolens and watching the leaves fall from the trees. x

  11. just found your blog! love it!

    xoxo danni

  12. Love the outfit selection. Great choice.

  13. snow?! ahhhh

  17. Love the backpack! And those Madewell shorts are fabulous. What fun!

  18. Hello

  19. Whaaaat??? Brrrrrrr. I thought it's very warm already...thats crazy.
    You went for a swim the other day and now this. Hope summer will get there in the next 2 weeks to welcome us!
