Wore my new printed dress to bring some colour to a dull Monday back at work! Spent most of my time at my desk working through all of the emails that had accumulated in my absence. I miss my holidays already! Had a really nice evening having dinner at my parents to have a happy end to the day.

The sunnies were last worn here, shoes here and bag here. This is the first time I've worn the dress as it was a new purchase.

Closeup of accessories and bag:

Covered up in the office today with a cardi but didn't take photos with it on outside as it was too warm to consider it! It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow, but really feeling for those further south who are battling with bushfires and record breaking heat. I'm really blessed to work all day in an air-conditioned office.


The sunnies were last worn here, skirt here, shoes here and bag here. It's the first time I've worn the top as it was a recent gift.

  3. What a fun dress...summer feels sonar away. I love the python bag too, have been debating on getting one but I wonder if exotic skin would hold well in the crazy seasonal weather.

    1. I'm not sure, I don't have many python items, but the ones I do have seem very durable. We don't have a lot of extreme weather in QLD though!

  22. I miss summer outfits :) But from what I hear I'm better off here in Europe :)
    Both outfits are cute and your cute as a button! I would maybe put some details on the second look, like a belt or a statement necklace.
