Thrifted t-shirt, Table Eight blouse, Ladakh skirt, Dotti boots

If I haven't made it already clear, it's now official – transitional weather will be the death of me. Lately the cool change has been teasing us (well, maybe just me) with the possibility of wearing knits and tights, but nope! It always turns out to be too hot to do so without boiling to death. In the meantime, I've been wearing open shirts over t-shirts instead of real jackets since it's always cold-but-not-really whenever I'm at uni. Truth be told though, I just want to bundle up in tons of layers already!

Anyway, I wore this to walk around the city and spend five hours looking for boots, to no avail. While I love my go-to Dotti ones, I'm on the lookout for a pair that's a bit more basic for everyday use. Unfortunately, finding something is nearly impossibly considering how picky I am! The boots I saw yesterday were either too expensive, too high-heeled, too narrow for my ginormous feet and so on. This doesn't mean I'm about to give up my search, though. Hopefully I'll find them during my upcoming holidays... after all, knowing Australia the real season for boot-appropriate weather won't be coming soon anyway!

  1. Cute outfit! The transitional weather is getting the best of me too! In March, it kept getting really warm outside only to be followed by snow the next day. I hope that the weather makes up it mind soon >(

    Good luck with your boot search! I'm pretty picky myself too.

  2. I really like the pop of stripes underneath, and I think it is a very well balanced outfit!

  11. I really like this outfit. And I think I kind of feel you, but then I'm not really a person for hot weather (I already boil to death when it's +25 degree Celsius out... :') Your boots are so cool, they look a bit Chloé like.

  12. What a beautiful sheen on your skirt...and it brings out the studs on the boots as well. I saw similar boots at Forever21 (do they have those where you live?). I know how you feel about shoe-shopping; I have wider toes so a lot of shoes feel like they are squeezing the front of my foot.

  15. Navy + black were made for each other. Bummer about the boots :( But when you find your perfect pair, you'll know it was worth it!! (Wow, it sounded like I was talking about soulmates and not shoes #bloggerproblems)

  16. Haha yeah, it's strange to see the night come so quickly these days and it still not be all that cold. Coming from Vancouver, winter/fall is usually quite a bit colder!
