It was my birthday last week and to celebrate I took my new Akubra out for a spin. While it was quite windy along the beach it was still a relatively pleasant day overall.
Since moving to Townsville it only felt natural that I would eventually own an Akubra. Jordan, of course, got his as soon as we moved here, but it took me a little longer to figure out what kind of style would work for me. I originally wanted a black Akubra but after trying a few on, I realised that a lighter colour would work a lot better with my existing wardrobe.
As for the rest of my outfit, lately I’ve been experimenting with different ways to wear slip dresses. I was inspired by this post to get a little creative – thanks Stacie! I ended up going with a layered tee over the top of my favourite pink slip dress and paired it with my studded boots to create a little contrast. Due to the heat here, I don’t get to wear boots too often these days, so I try to make the most of it when I can.
