I’m not really one to wear miniskirts but I completely fell for this gorgeous twirly number by American Apparel, so much so that I also got it in black! Poufy enough to look playful rather than skanky, a look I generally avoid. And the lilac colour goes surprisingly well against all those bright neon colours that are sweeping through stores this summer! Now this Karen Walker top arrived (oh how I love KW, have you noticed yet? She’s like my girlfriend) and I instantly realised I was waaaaay too short for it (story of my life). Well, a quick roll up of the sleeves and nipping in of the waist – et voila!
How are you guys stylishly surviving the searing Perth heat?

I had only just barely touched down in Perth when off we set again to Darwin to celebrate a close friend’s wedding! My internal thermostat was more than happy to escape Perth’s chilly winter to bask in the warm and balmy north Australian dry season that I’ve been more accustomed to of late.
I was particularly excited to rediscover a pile of clothing from my recent travels to New York, London and Paris that had remained untouched due to Broome’s propensity to stay a constant thirty degrees Celsius as well as the generally more outdoorsy lifestyle.
So it’s no surprise that I reached for this entirely Paris-bought outfit – an appropriately sweet and floral Comptoir des Cotonniers dress paired with delicate Repetto heels, made with the softest of leathers. Their fairy princess gleam, not-too-high-but-very-ladylike heel and ultimate comfort level ensured that we were boogying on down well into the night!

As promised, here’s a look at what I wore to my 30th birthday celebration! I’d been obsessing over this Rachel Gilbert dress from afar for quite some time (2226km to be exact!) and couldn’t wait for the chance to try it on. I had my heart set on wearing this (as you would have seen here) and had already started conjuring up how I would style it but also didn’t want to get my hopes up too high in case there was something amiss with the fit or colour and that my poor little heart would be broken. I had absolutely nothing to fear as I tried it on in store – it fit like a glove! I absolutely fell in love with the combination of the sweetheart neckline and fitted pencil silhouette and most of all the sheer netting encrusted with pearls and sequins. Just the right amount of bling. 🙂
I’d also been lusting over this clutch for a while and to my surprise and happy amazement it was waiting for me at home when I got back to Perth. It was an early birthday present from Jinn – thanks sweetheart! He knows me too well, it’s such a great colour – the neon green really pops. And best of all it came personalised with “Belongs to Sarah” on it! Mine mine mine!
It was a lovely evening and certainly felt the love from all my family and friends who came that night. It was the perfect opportunity to catch up with everyone as I’d been out of Perth for two months, and to be honest I barely had time to snatch a breath between hugs, kisses and high-speed-highly-excited recaps from all the guests. I can’t wait to share more party photos! We’ve been whirling around the French countryside, enjoying the wedding of the century (so beautiful and so FUN! So much champagne, so much dancing!) and now we’ve finally settled in for the final leg of our holiday in Paris where we will be catching our breath, taking in a few galleries, and of course many a croissant et baguette! (Oh hello, Laduree!)
