Starting Monday off with an outfit better suited for cities north of Melbourne. It’s definitely a bit too cold to be wearing this in Melbourne at the moment however I wanted to share a dress which I have been loving and living in when I was invited to Sydney last week to attend the Myer SS14 launch. I completely understand now when people say how “hot” Australia is in Winter and that you never “need” a coat because when people say that, they don’t come from Melbourne (or potentially Hobart, Adelaide & Canberra). I think last week was my first time in Sydney during Winter and I could not believe how warm it was! All I needed at 7:30AM in the morning was a thermal top under this dress, bare legs and no socks, ready for a warm, gust-free 21 degree day. I know where I’m heading when I first get the chance! So this dress has seen better days than the cold Melbourne morning I shot this and I just love the unstructured, flowy shape of it (it’s the same as my orange one in fact!), making it the perfect day dress for travelling comfortably and also versatile enough to add a pair of fancy heels to take it through to evening wear :-)

P.S. What a typical day four seasons one Melbourne day today: Min: 11°C Max: 15°C. Partly cloudy. Scattered showers this morning becoming isolated this afternoon with sunny breaks developing. Possible hail and thunder. Further showers developing tonight. Winds N 30 to 35 km/h turning W 35 to 50 km/h this morning. Some stronger squalls likely.
