Gifted Wish top, Sass & Bide shorts, ATP sandalsAndeol scarf (from Basically Boutique), Rayban sunglasses (borrowed from Uppy).

Don't you just love when things fall perfectly into place? Desperate to shoot half an hour before the start of our shift,  Uppy and I pulled together a head scarf/ turban headband with the help of this handy how to from Brenda of Benah whilst using the reflection in the car window as my mirror. First win. 

Then came the location searching. Probably the hardest part of the process. Unfortunately this country is not blessed with the beautiful sidewalks of Los Angeles, canals of Amsterdam or streets of Stockholm and anything beyond Sydney CBD is uninspiring/ looks typically Australian. Obviously this ensemble spells beach with a capital B (I'm picturing myself roaming Bali beaches in this getup), but we were miles away from the sand and ocean. I'll have you know this is actually the ramp to the rooftop carpark at the shopping centre where we work. Did I ruin the magic? The muted tones and faded yellow sand-esque shade of paint made it a deceivingly awesome backdrop. Second win. 

It only went up from there. We managed to smash out all the shots we wanted in ten minutes and all the elements, lighting, my posing were in our favour. This has to be one of my favourite posts to date (I know I say this all the time but I really mean it) and to think it all happened spontaneously and unplanned. It seems the best moments in life always work out that way.
