meet my pink tiger


Hello people!

How are you?
I'm utterly happy today because it's raining and storming here! We even have thunder and lightning too! This weather reminds me of home (good old rainy Germany) and it's such a nice change to the heat we've had for weeks before.
I can't wait to experience the Western Australian winter weather! I'm pretty sure it'll be right up my alley, not too warm and not too cold, just right probably.
By the way can you believe I'm most likely the only girl in Perth who stubbornly wears tights all summer through? You will hardly ever see me without tights because as long as the temperatures don't rise above 40°C I will still wear my light sheer 15 DEN tights.
I don't know how all the other girls can do without a thin layer of nylon covering their legs!? It's not much warmer because 15 DEN is so thin, it's almost not existent. It's also so much nicer to wear sheer tights when you don't have the time to shave every second day (and when you don't have the money for waxing and the likes). AND at the office sheer tights are a blessing when the aircon is running all day.
Okay, enough ramblings on hosiery. I just needed to get this off my chest so I don't feel like a complete alien here in the city of bare waxed tanned beach legs.




// dress: h+m // cardigan: bigw // necklace: brandy melville // tote bag: cotton on // bracelet: accessorize // shoes: minnetonka //

This outfit is one of my new favourites at the moment. I love the combo of the dress and cardigan because it's so springy. The dress was an H+M sale bargain I bought shortly before leaving Germany and it was totally worth the 7 € I paid. It's cheap polyester quality but has the loveliest shape and fit.
The pretty pink tiger on my new tote bag was the perfect bright pop of colour to go with the floral print, don't you think? The bag was only 2$ at and the money goes to charity projects. The shoes are oldies but goldies: my trusty second hand mocs! I bought them dirt cheap on a German swapping (and buy/sell) website.
Looking at this outfit makes me happy because the whole combo in total is less than 50 bucks. Yes yes, I love me my bargains...





Well, that's all for today, I can't think of more things to talk about right now. I think next time I'll show you some more Perthian street art or tell you a bit about my new job. Not sure yet which post will come first.
For now I'll say goodbye and spend a cozy rain storm night in bed.
Toodels!

  3. You've made a very convincing case for wearing hosiery! Your pretty green BigW cardigan, floral H+M dress, tights, and pink tiger print Cotton On tote bag all look fabulous together.

  7. An outfit for less than $50 sound perfect! This is such an adorable look, the mix of the feminine floral dress with the earthy brown moccasins is wonderful! And that green just pops! You look lovely, dear :)

  8. Haha you were JUST talking about how you miss that stormy weather, too! What perfect timing. Also, I hear ya. Especially right after winter, it's sometimes a shock to see my bare legs. I do prefer my outfits without them though- I always feel like I can never find that perfect shade and it just turns the rest of my look wonky. Sigh.

    Absolutely love the cardi with your dress- the color brings it all together nicely :)

  9. I'm totally a tights kinda girl, I wear them all the way through summer, usually. I sometimes wear skin coloured ones though.

  13. I love this outfit. That emerald cardigan is such a beautiful color. I also share similar feelings on tights. It never gets too cold in California, but I still wear tights most of the time. They really are a lifesaver when I don't want to shave my legs. haha! Plus, I'm incredibly pale for a California girl. ;)

  14. It's interesting what you say about tights. I actually wear them every day too even if it is 40 degrees, but I wear the clear variety. I prefer it because it is a nicer finish to an outfit and agree exactly that it helps if you haven't shaved! It keeps my shoes in better condition too. You are also right that no one here in Australia does it, I am literally the only person I ever see. Your bag is totally amazing. I love anything tiger or cat related (and pink). Florals are the best too and so is green :)
