Jokes. I never got one to start with!
So a few weeks ago now I spent the week in Sydney for a conference...
This was my outfit for day one. Just to make sure everyone noticed me of course. I adore this red skirt, I bought it earlier this year from a TEMT outlet store at Harbourtown for less than $20 (after deciding I wanted to wear a red skirt on Bastille Day). I've definitely got my value out of it.
Ignore the wet hair, I had no choice, it was only once I woke up with disgusting hair that HAD to be washed that I realised there was no hair dryer in the suite.
I fixed that by buying a $20 travel on from Priceline during lunch.
The conference was held at Cockle Bay in Darling Harbour. Not a bad spot to be visiting from out of town.
After the special conference lecture (which finished at 8pm) I changed my skirt for jeans and my heels for flats and ventured over to Star City.
Not to gamble, to head to Zumbo's patisserie obviously. I got some macarons to bring home to share with SJ, was only able to buy the flavours they had going (really wanted salted caramel) so I got Lamington, Donut, Salt and Vinegar, Vanilla and Popcorn. The last was the best.
I also went for a bit of a wander through the city, didn't feel like I could visit Sydney and not stop by the bridge, even if it was at 10pm.
Day two was a grey Target dress with my favourite black Forcast cropped jacket. Very versatile.
To the conference dinner I wore a white dress (from Forever New) and accessorised with red. Tried out my MAC Russian Red for the first time (officially anyway) and freaked out all night that I needed to check up on it. It held up reasonably well with a few touch ups, but I'm not sure the look is worth the stress!
On the final day I wore a black dress but forgot to take photographs, I even teamed it with my new red leather jacket (that I bought while Mum was down) so I probably should have. Oh well.
I was supposed to meet up with Rhi for lunch, but she ditched me for a guy. A rather adorable one, but none the less I was disappointed haha.
I was lucky enough to manage a very quick visit with MrsG though, if only for half an hour at the airport before I ran off for my plane...which was (typically) delayed. No face photos since it was the end of the day, but we did do a hand one to prove we met!
Don't worry girls, I will definitely be back! I think SJ and I deserve a weekend away sometime soon!
And you're more than welcome to come visit us in Melbourne!
