There was a night a few weeks ago when nature decided to cruelly taunt me with a hint of chilliness in the air. I was like, “Right! Time to crack out the winter wardrobe!”. Well, with temperatures still tipping 30 degrees Celsius these days it feels like my impulse-buy Sessun coat will have to languish just a tad longer. Listen to me, complaining about good weather! Definitely means I live in Perth!
At least there was this one night where I got to pull out this cuteypie pink top…But it won’t be long now!

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!

I write the title of this post while I’m once again many many miles away from my home in Perth. After having such an amazing time overseas, I’m now already back in Broome (highlights of the holiday – getting to spend three whole weeks with Jinn, watching Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre, getting the chance to catch up with a whole bunch of besties at the wedding of the century in France, singing in the most beautiful cathedral for this fairytale wedding [the acoustics!], driving on the “wrong” side of the road through the green rolling hills of Brittany trying my hardest not to freak out, and of course foodfoodfood and shoppingshoppingCHANELflagshipstoreshopping!). Wow, that bracketed sentence was so long I think I forgot what I was originally saying…
Oh yeah, so we’d had an incredible three weeks overseas that was so absolutely jam-packed (except for that one night we ate instant noodles, yep) that by the end of it I was admittedly longing for my bed, my garden, my coffee machine, and just the comfort that being totally at home brings. No needing to rush around to see or do something “because you might never come back here again!”, no struggling to say something quite unintelligibly in a foreign language, no wars with maps/evil GPS machines. Travelling is awesome, but there’s something pretty cool about knowing where everything is and being able to stroll down to your local cafe to grab a bite and a coffee then sitting in your own backyard listening to the birds sing.
So that’s what we did during the 39 hours I was back in Perth for. Oh and of course there’s always time for a quick little outfit post! The perfectly temperate yet sunny weather so typical of Perth was the ideal accompaniment to this sweet denim (Paris-bought!) dress and K is for Kani floral crown that was yet another birthday gift from Jinn! It was just so nice to be able to wander outside without at least three layers and a big coat on! Does anyone else get super sick of their “big coat” when they go travelling to cold places? I hate wearing the same thing everyday, plus it covers up the rest of your awesome outfit!
Apologies for not posting during our holiday but we were seriously that busy and our internet particularly patchy. But do you know what that means? Many many more posts to come shortly…!
