Saturdays in Summer

Summer accounts for such a large portion of Australian life; its not just a season here but a change of pace, great attitudes, a 'she'll-be-right' view of life and just a sense of freedom. And so summer has begun :)

The boy and I spent the first warm weekend in a long while (about 30 degrees celcius, mmm) at a local market where we sat on the grass and watched the market happenings and then got approached by a cute member of a band debuting their new album soon (they were just chilling in the park and the guy came over and was so cute and bizarre), had coffee and people-watched, and went to dinner at one of our favourite restaurants (Little Creatures in Fremantle) with a good friend and her boy. And then Sunday there was more lazing, coffee at the boat harbour, dips in the pool, and just chilling out.

You are so cute. And again, killer shoes, girl!! :) Thanks for your comment, lovey.

And I have never seen The Machinist or American Psycho for that matter. I choose not to, for the fear of losing my crush on him..... lol.

Awww thanks guys for the sweet comments :)

Alyssa, I saw these in a store in Melbourne and could not believe such a good knock-off of the Marnis was available on the high street. So had to buy them, of course ;) (I'm slightly regretting not buying the leather Gucci studded bootie-knockoffs I saw in a shop, much much better than the topshop ones :/)

Swank Heights, I buy my shoes in high street stores in Australia or vintage stores here or ebay or even on the rare occasion from online American stores (where the high shipping costs and sxchange rate kills me!)

Also, Urban Soul is an Australian leather shoe brand, but they have no website (I know, its the 21st century!!)
