Handmade Wardrobe / Inspiration


So basically, incase you were wondering – my internal temperature gauge is just so confused right now. It’s funny, but i’m actually kind of struggling to acclimatize to the heat. Summer is hot. I know that sounds really obvious, but yikes, i guess i forgot how truly hot perth summer is.

It feels so weird seeing all my friends back in the US wearing winter clothing now, while i’m dying in almost nothing. Might resort to wearing a swim suit all the time if this keeps up. Or i’ll just sit in one of those little kiddie pools all day hehehe

And ALSO my hair is like a woolly scarf… i’m pretty sure it’s raising my temperature by a few degrees on its own. I might need to work on my bun skills. But we all know that didn’t turn out so well last time.

Okay thats the end of my random thoughts on feeling overheated. I think it’s starting to effect my ability to articulate. Broken overheated brain must go sit under air vent hehehehhe

I hope you have a wonderful weekend my dears!

I am so jealous! It’s snowing here – looks gorgeous but not so nice when I’ve just spent hours in the car trying to get home from work… I hear it’s the hottest day EVER in Oz! Enjoy! I’m going to make a snowman tomorrow…

If I posted a daily outfit, it would be all “Look how well this polyester blend sweater hangs on to my son’s crushed pieces of Cheerios!” Wink wink. But this is perfect because it’s 1) cute and 2) you could totally chase a rambunctious little explorer in it.

We are having Perth weather here in Sydney at the moment. I don’t know how you cope with it all summer long!
You look great – let the hair do whatever, I say (that’s my personal mantra in summer….!)

Oh Megan. It IS freakin hot. And I won’t go into comparing hotness because obviously you are melting but after I would take a swap for your end of the country’s dry heat over our clammy, sticky, humidity any day.
