{Summer in the suburbs}

Dress: French Connection 
Shoes: Corelli 
Cross Bracelet: Sportsgirl
Nail Polish: Chanel Delight 

I spent the afternoon at my cousin Josh's fifth birthday party with the family. The weather was warm, which was a welcome change from the bitterly cold winter that we experienced here in Sydney this year. We are definitely in for a hot summer. 

This maxi dress actually belongs to my lovely twin sister Emma and she was very generous to let me wear it today. She got it last year from the outlets and it is the perfect wardrobe staple for every summer. With the dress being black, it is easy to accessorise with simple jewellery and black sandals, as I have done here. The stretchy top and long skirt combination is super comfortable too. Plus, it can be worn during the day as well as at night. Although it looks heavy and insulating, the cotton fabric is surprising light and breezy, making it perfect for summer usage. How gorgeous is the pattern on the bodice! I love the colours, they are so bright and fun! 

Sidenote: Next time I post, I will hopefully be I am changing the URL of this blog so everything will still be here. I just felt like I wanted a more appropriate URL for my personal fashion blog. I would have changed it already but I have been unable due to Blogger being under maintenance and not letting me change it just yet. It should be up and running next week though. Alas, I will still be the same blog, just with a different, better URL!
