the roadtrip wrap-up

So it’s been a while- I know- but in all fairness during this month I’ve finished my first year of university, made a whole bunch of new friends and road-tripped from Bondi to Byron to Brisbane to back home in the span of 10 short days. Which is what this post is about. Yesterday I left Brisbane and am now home on the coast for three short days before Melbourne again. I love and miss my family but feel like that city is truly becoming a home. A very small, usually dirty and overpriced home, but a home nonetheless. So here is photographic documentation of the magnificent shitshow that ensued when we took 8 girls in a soccer mom van across three states.

2 of us got tattoos in Newtown and I stood against a cool-looking wall for something different.

We got sunburnt at Coogee beach and I fell over and embarrassed myself and sliced my knee open. Just another day simultaneously injuring and mortifying myself.

We made it to Byron and got more sunburnt and found somebody’s court appearance notice on the beach. He had assault charges in every state and apparently didn’t feel like showing up that day. Then we took a surfing lesson except our instructor was a dingbat and I got into a fight with him about wetsuit sizes. And then fell off the board a bunch.

Then we finally made it to Brisbane and perched ourselves on my friend Nina’s ridiculously beautiful balcony. She lives in a hotel. As you do. We went out and I was looking after everyone else for a somewhat refreshing change.

Wearing: Top c/o We are Cow, Lee shorts, RM Williams boots.

It was finally a sunny day in Melb and naturally I took full advantage with a crop top and cutoff shorts. Of course it was raining an hour later, but it was nice while it lasted.

I’ve officially finished exams and could not be more stoked. Have slept at least 30 hours in the past 2 days and eaten my weight in vegemite toast and microwavable Annie’s meals. Also watched an absurd amount of America’s Next Top Model reruns. How are exams treating you? No obligations and ready to chat- Tumblr message me tonight to keep me busy! xx

Give it a thumbs up and all that other Youtube jazz! And subscribe! Also if you have any requests let me know, I’ll be filming today ♡

Outfit one (silky bomber): Opening Ceremony jacket via Shopbop, Supre jeans, RM Williams boots (thrifted).
Outfit two (red sweater): Vintage knit, Supre flares, Supre belt, RM Williams boots. 
Outfit three (picnic): Vintage silk blouse, vintage skirt (both via Yesteryear).

Oh hey! Long time no speak. Completely my fault, of course- I’ve been collecting photos all week with the blog in mind but never actually got the chance to post them. So a little breakdown: a picnic in the park (we were supposed to study) (we didn’t), an expensive-but-totally-worth-it brunch at Higher Ground, vintage warehouse trawling with much success, the discovery of technicolour street art amongst the city’s colour palette of black and grey and me fawning over this goddamn jacket. 

I also went to the Macklemore concert last night and it was grouse. Although, the age demographic was a little older and noone really seemed to understand us breaking it down in our seats. Who sits at a concert?! WHO!? Also I hear you guys and I am vlogging this weekend bc you’ve been asking where my videos are at. Something v exciting is happening tomorrow night so you’ll get to see woooo! Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend! xx
