Weekend Wear: Colour Block Maxi Dress, RM Mini MAC | Singlet and Shorts, Mulberry Alexa

Here's what I wore to go shopping with DH and pick up my new camera yesterday:
Sunnies: Pink leopard print sunglasses from Paddy's Markets in Sydney
Bracelets: the usual plus two beaded Sportsgirl Butterfly Foundation bracelets, Lovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' twisted bow charm bracelet in silverLovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' heart charm bracelet in silver and enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet in pink.
DressCotton On Colour blocked maxi in black / Algiers blue
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in Aquamarine

Wore a simple dress as it was a hot day. Cooper's smile is the cutest! :)
Went to the stores to try out some cameras and decide which one to buy. My old camera had something get into the lens a few weeks ago and it can't be cleaned out. As the zoom functionality broke a while ago too it was definitely time to upgrade. DH was very sweet and gave me an IOU for a camera for Christmas, knowing that I hadn't picked the perfect replacement yet. Together we picked the Sony NEX5R digital camera in store today. The SA Lisa in Camera House was so helpful! I'm really impressed with how much functionality the camera has for blogging and I'm excited to use it for future posts.


The sunnies were last worn here, dress here, sandals here and bag here.

Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic pearly grey double tour bracelet
TopAsos grey singlet
ShortsJeanswest printed denim shorts
ShoesGifted black slim Havaianas thongs
BagMulberry regular size Alexa bag in foggy grey from Reebonz sale

Had a relaxing Sunday today, and had the chance to play around with my new camera to take today's outfit pictures. Have been learning where everything is and taking as many different pictures as possible to get a feel for all of the new settings. Have been following Cooper around all day trying to get different shots of him, haha! It's good he is such a patient little dog.

  31. Love that blue maxi dress, but I'm completely take in by that cute Minkfoff bag. Such a beauty! Boy, do I wish I had your handbags! :D

    Getting a new camera is always exciting isn't it? I got mine for Christmas last year and chased our dogs around for weeks. Everytime I learn a new trick from youtube I test it out on them first :D x

    1. hehe I'm glad I'm not the only one using my dog as a test subject! I'm finding it so hard to get the right settings I want for outfit shots - lots of practice still needed, and maybe a tripod too!
