Fly away with me



boots: target // skirt: portmans // shirt: asos (but found on ebay) // blazer: dotti //  scarf: katies

If you have been following this blog for awhile you would know I want a tattoo, two actually but I still haven't been game enough to get them. I want a babushka doll on my shoulder and a hot air balloon on the back of my neck. I have wanted both of these for nearly three years! To fill the void I seem to surround myself with every little hot air balloon or babushka doll trinket I can find and now it is spilling into my wardrobe.

I saw this shirt on ASOS a month ago but it was sold out but I was determined to make it mine. The lovely Rhianne gave me the idea to check on ebay and low and behold it turned up on the UK site in my size. I begged the seller to send it to Australia and she very kindly obliged. Now it is mine and the sweetest shirt I have ever owned. It just shows perseverance  pays off ... that or displays my addiction to shopping, three days strong people!


  1. You'll get the tattoos one day it's fun! I've got a couple planned for the coming weeks!!! I adore that balloon top it's soo adorable. x

  2. This outfit is SO gorgeous :) The cute top is such a great find! I always forget to look on ebay for things that have sold out... I LOVE your boots too! and your legs are looking amazing! I guess I need to get myself to a Bootcamp! :)

    Love, Rachel

  3. cuteness. I did look at buying that top a couple of times while it was still for sale.

  4. that blouse is beyond perfection.

  5. I think you should get them because you have wanted them for a few years now. I have this idea. When we can meet at Bathurst you should go to Jason's dad's tattoo shop. And I will get one too :) Haha.

    I think it's amazing you found that top. It's adorable! Plus I really love your whole outfit.

  6. Came across your blog yesterday and fell in love! Such a pretty skirt, I love that sort of red-wine colour. The hot air balloon tattoo sounds cute, and yay for the perseverance paying off! Now following you lovely :)

  7. Um, I vote you wear this outfit everyday. It's one of my favourites on you! LOVE!

    I love Gracie's idea of you two getting a tattoo together!

  8. That outfit is perfect for the weather we've been having! And ASOS have come out with the cutest prints on their blouses. I missed out on one with ice cream cones all over it, will have to follow your lead and check on ebay!I've been thinking about a tattoo as well, for years, but haven't done anything about it...yet!

  9. Such a cute outfit! That top was definitely worth the chase. I'm really into shirts with kooky prints at the moment too - I got a swan print one from ASOS recently and love it :)
