While I am quite at my liberty to discus the appropriateness of fur at the beach, remember my friends that it is winter, and in winter one aims to be warm. I can hear you scoffing behind your gloves under the present photographic circumstances, however, this was one of those ‘unseasonably warm’ days you sometimes hear about, yet rarely catch, and which Adelaide has had its fair share of in the past few days. So with bare legs, high spirits and a juncture of the best parts of two opposing seasons in one outfit, my sister and I attempted the treck to what is known in our family (and other inner circles) as The Secret Beach (capitals necessary).

This particular cove is nestled in the recesses of a very lovely beach frequented by my family and many of our friends, over steep, rocky outcrops and with the help of a very narrow foot-worn path. The winter sunlight streaming over the rocks and the summer spirit of my Keepsake full circle skirt romanticises the hilarious struggle down rock faces, against bracing winds with icy southern waters below, but I do love  the admirable fight of the shoestring straps to remain calm in such an adverse environment.

The underlying theme here is of course exploration,  in which nothing other than the most trustworthy of footwear will do. These are my Ricccardo Banfi gumboots. A combination of rubber durability and leather form, they traverse the ever hard to navigate situation that is a winter, when comfort begrudgingly wins out over style (I joke of course, this never happens…). Yet these perfectly blend simple winter aesthetics with waterproof functionality. In fact the eloquent phrase ‘snug as a bug in a rug’ may have been bandied about. Well, I am a pretty articulate lass.

    I am in love with your dress! All I’ve been wearing lately is little dresses because of New York’s heat, and I’ve been on the lookout for a light and airy white one. Thanks for sharing!
