Printed Zara Dress, Balenciaga Sang Clutch | Burgundy Tee, Metallic Lace Skirt, Miu Miu Bag

Here's what I wore to spend time with family on Saturday:

Away From Blue blog Balenciaga Sang flat clutch bag worn
Sunglasses: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets, blue beaded bracelet and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm
BagBalenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang


Saturday was the peak of our Queensland heatwave, and it was to get up to 41 degrees Celsius in Brisbane. Wore this light and breezy Zara tunic dress to keep cool, and to look a little dressed up for visiting family and attending a birthday dinner in the evening. We survived the day by staying in air conditioning as much as possible, haha!


Last worn: blue sunglasses, Zara printed dress, glitter flats, Balenciaga sang GH clutch.



Here's what I wore today:
Burgundy wine oversized tee metallic lace mini skirt

Miu Miu studded leather clutch bag cammeo
Sunglasses: gifted Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Roie Designs long freshwater pearl necklace with tassel
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine
Skirt: Cotton On metallic lace tulip skirt in frosted almond/silver
Shoes: Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Ferragamo double wrap bracelet, Roie Designs leather and pearl bracelet and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


Today was much cooler than yesterday thankfully. Lots of smoke haze from the Straddie bushfire though. Hope everyone is keeping safe.

Although this skirt has a little bit of volume on it's own, I've paired it with less fitted tops in the past and thought it looked okay, so I thought I would try it again today with the burgundy tee. What do you think?


Last worn: Rayban Wayfarers, burgundy tee, metallic lace skirt, studded sandals, Miu Miu studded clutch.

Linking up with Mix It Monday today.
