Riverfire: Pink Stripe Maxi Dress, Miu Miu Clutch | Blue Tee, Grey Leopard Print Skinnies, RM Mini MAC

Here's what I wore to go to spend time with friends on Saturday:
Away From Blue what to wear Brisbane riverfire festival fireworks stripe maxi dress

(Don't worry! DH took these photos while he and Cooper walked with me to catch the bus into the city. Cooper stayed at home with DH away from the fireworks and noise).

NecklaceIndigo Rose Design feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Dress: Three Dots stripe maxi dress (new purchase)
Shoes: Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Chloe Paddington crystal charm bracelet
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


This dress is one of my latest shopbop purchases. I took it to the tailor to get it shortened a little for me before I could wear it, as it was really long on me. A maxi dress was the perfect thing to wear to spend time with my friends on Saturday and watch the Brisbane Riverfire fireworks. Although I took my denim jacket in case I got cold, I didn't need it after the rain cleared up for a hot and sunny afternoon. We had a great view of the Story Bridge, yummy food and it was nice catching up with everyone.

After a little bit of a late night on Saturday, a nice relaxing Sunday :) Wearing one of my newest tees that I won by entering a church competition. Was the perfect thing to wear to Church Online this evening, haha! It's a little large on me but I thought it looked nice partially tucked into my jeans. What do you think?

Linking up with Sunday Style, Spotlight Weekly linkup today.
