outfit | don't rain on my parade

Now Terry Sweater, Sweet Acacia Lace Dress (worn underneath), Topshop Sheer Tights, Forever 21 Boots and Urban Outfitters Watch
When everyone thinks of the Australian summer, they would immediately think extremely warm weather, perfect for the beach right? That certainly hasn't been the case for the past week - it has been raining. Yes, raining. For the first time in months, I have been able to play with layers (and about time too!). I chose to stick to a monochromatic palette for this outfit so I could transition the lace dress into something more weather appropriate. I layered it with a terry sweater to create a rather casual-cool look. Paired with some sheer tights and ankle boots and I was set. This weather and outfit has made me rather excited for the upcoming autumn/winter season. It is only three weeks away and fall collections have been making their way into stores - I am more than excited. And excuse me for the Funny Girl reference in the title, I just had to.
