Hello again! Can you believe it’s February? January just flew by! I may have mentioned once or twice already that The Hubs and I spent a long weekend in Surfers Paradise on the beautiful Queensland Gold Coast recently. We took lots of photos and I really wanted to share a few with you because the views from Mount Tambourine were just gorgeous, but I almost ditched all of these from a ‘style’ perspective. My outfit is very simple which perfectly suited the environment, but I was very disappointed that I didn’t have the accessories with me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Havaiana’s as much as the next Aussie, (if fact I have 11 pairs!) but if I had a choice of pretty much anything else I would have worn them. Anyway, in the end I decided to use the photos because the setting was just too pretty but I took a couple of shots at home to show you what I would have like to have worn. I am much happier with the ‘after’ look, which just goes to prove how much impact a few little changes can have. Read on for all the details …
Let’s Get Social!
Even if I hadn’t had a packing mishap, I didn’t have a lot of options in the way of cute, casual flats. I pretty much live my life in heels and that just wouldn’t work with this outfit. The good news is I rectified that the day after these photos were taken, when I bought six pairs in one hit, one of which features in the ‘after’ shots. While it was a struggle to get them all home, mostly because I insist on keeping all my shoes boxes (does anyone else do that?), it was worth it because the rest of my trip was a lot more stylish.
