When I shop, I know what I want and I want to have found it within 20 minutes max. Carrie Bradshaw’s quote ‘Shopping is my cardio’ isn’t meant for me, as 20 minutes won’t burn those chocolate bar calories. This is the reason I like to shop at ‘search engine webshops’. You know, those shops where you simply type in what you’re looking for and hundreds of matching results show up. I work with and that’s how I get it done in 20 minutes!

In this case I was searching for something holiday-ish, like shorts or a skirt, and a sweater to go with it. A sweater as a holiday item? Yes! No matter where you travel, the nights can cool off so quickly; I always hate it when I forget to bring a sweater. Plus, I love the skirt + sweater combo, especially with cool sandal-boots. And not to forget, some cool shades to go with it!

I’m currently traveling through Australia. Did you know that Australia is 185 times as big as The Netherlands (my home country) and that the whole of Europe fits in Australia? You can imagine that the climate changes as much over here as it does in Europe. Scandinavia is cold, while Spain is hot. Same here, with The Northern Territory and South Australia. Except it’s the opposite over here as Australia is on the other side of the equator. The north is warm and the south is cold. I’m currently traveling through crispy South Australia and that’s why I really needed a “holiday sweater” too!

What I’m wearing:
ASOS sweater, via
RIVER ISLAND skirt, via
ASOS shades, via
BALENCIAGA sandal-boots

    Enjoy your travels! I am from Adelaide, so I completely understand the need for a warm knit and good pair of boots! Stay warm!

    Hey, girl, I think you mean that “Australia is on the other side of the Equator”… not quite the same as Ecuador 😀
