Bare Stems and Aussie Baubles

Paddy's Market in Sydney is a shopper's dream. Row upon row of vendors selling uggs, koala magnets, kangaroo jerky, and tons of handmade jewelry.

This necklace caught my eye so I snatched it up for around $12.

The day I bought it was a few weeks before Christmas in 2005, and I was leaving Australia in a few days. I remember it being insanely hot outside and how strange it was to see a city full of people dressed in full-on summer fashions and yet all the store front windows decorated with Christmas trees.

While the weather in Halifax today certainly wasn't sweltering, it was sunny and sort-of warm. A good temperature for wearing a skirt..... as long as the arms were covered up!

Jacket: Danier (Halifax)
T-Shirt: Smart Set (Halifax)
Skirt: Forever 21 (Toronto)
Necklace: Paddy's Market (Sydney, Australia)
Shoes: Franco Sarto (Toronto)

R and I, along with both sets of our parents, are checking out the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market tomorrow morning. I can almost taste the cupcake already....
