45 degrees and style = very hard to do

Ugh. I hate summer! I know, I know, I hear the gasps of disbelief but I'm sorry, it does not encourage outfit creativity in me, and that alone is enough to make me shake my fists at the blazing sun!
Although I will qualify that by saying I do love those balmy summer nights at the beach or strolling around with friends at a cafe districts in the warm breeze, but in general, Melbourne's extreme heat at this time of year equals unoriginal and boring outfits. Give me winter any day, where the layers can be as simple or complex as you wish, but not summer, where anything more than a loose, short dress or singlet and shorts is too much. Not to mention the hair!
Is it just me, or does summer also equal boring ponytails or quick buns on top of the head?
I have so many pieces in my wardrobe that do not lend themselves to above 35 degree heat, and perhaps I should seek to rectify that in future. Hrm. Food for thought.

On another note, I recently (at Christmas?) bought the cutest little floral bustier.....loves it! However, talk about a cleavage alert! I can't wait for winter to be able to layer on top of some singlets ala Fashion Toast. Sorry about the crap photo where you can't actually see the bustier, all other photos were much too 'busty'...ha. ha. ha


  1. I have to agree summer generally equals ponytails / quick buns.... especially those who straighten their hair!let's face it having the radiating heat of a hair straighter on a 45 degree day is not pleasant!! And knowing full well that once you did if it would not be long until you start sweating and .... the pretty straight hair looks like a mixture of straight and bad wavy/curly hair

  2. Wow. You're stunning!

    I'll let you in on a not-so-secret secret. I hate Summer too. Give me layers, and cold weather... and better hair days. Please. xx

  3. Yep summer is hard, that is why accessories become a staple. LOng hair is hard, the humidity is blah, but bobby pins are a girls best friend and offer opportunities for 'interesting' up-dos.

    Now listen to me trying to sound as if I am an expert hehehehe.

    I learn from you oh wise one :)

  4. Krista - I so hear you on the straightener issue....there is no way I am putting an 80 degree object near my face on a hot day!
