Hey there you!
Welcome along to part two of my Aussie outfit diary where I’m sharing what I wore on my recent trip down under (check out the Melbourne edition here). For my second week in Australia, Cat and I headed up to the stunning city of Sydney to get some much-needed sun before my return home to the wintery weather of Aberdeen. For the higher temps here in comparison to Melbourne, the shorts were coming out, the suncream was getting slathered on (although not enough apparently) and my time in Sydney was spent in a whole new set of outfits!
Getting a quick tourist snap next to the iconic Sydney Opera house before heading to Manly for a beach day! This was a bit of a cobbled together outfit but I was pleasantly surprised with how well the orange and red tones went together for a casual, summery look.
Another day, another boat trip but this time to the very quaint Shark Island on a cloudy day in Sydney. Real talk: I wore this playsuit to hide the awful sunburn I brought back from Manly beach – Top tip: bring some high-neck pieces to avoid a double burn on the chest!
I wore this outfit to have a nosy around the beautiful Opera House and up the Sydney Tower. As you can probably tell by now, I like to show a bit of skin for tan maximization (sorry mum!) while also keeping my outfits casual but pretty for comfort and style.
Another casual summer look was what I wore on day 4 to explore the city. Sometimes I quite like to keep it fairly simple so classic denim shorts with a pair of white trainers were a basic option while the lacy lilac top kept the outfit feminine.
This is probably one of my favourite looks from the trip because it just works so well in terms of colour and detailing if I do say so myself! Not too matchy but not too haphazardly flung together. For this day we went on an 8km walking tour of the city – I can confirm that the espadrilles have outdone themselves for both comfort and sass factor!
One more day spent in Manly before heading back home! This is an absolute cop-out for an “outfit” per se but I obviously need to mention a bikini in a holiday outfit post (I wore the frill skort and rose crop top FYI so nothin’ new!). This bikini is the “Cyprus” from Boux Avenue and the fit is absolutely perfect for a gal whose large and in charge in the boob region! It’s actually a halterneck but because of the sling design of the ties (i.e. starts at the underwire and not at the top of the cup), I was able to pass it around and tie them in a little bow at the back, so y’know she’s a versatile one.
So that’s my outfit diary for what I wore in Sydney – out of interest, which one was your favourite or what would you wear differently? If you want to see more of what we got up to in Sydney and Melbourne, keep an eye on my Youtube channel where I’ll be uploading the vlogs in a couple of weeks!
Enjoy the rest of the week lovelies!
