The Look: Aussie Outback

**Insert a flurry of banjos for this entire post**

If you thought bloggers only went to sexy street-scapes and balmy beaches, I'll stop you in your tracks right there! Today I head to the good ol' Aussie bush and bring you a more chic take on classic country dressing.

 Please note: This post contains no hootenannys, tractors, sweaty singlets or missing teeth.

Bracelets: Lovisa
Brogues: Primark (Similar here)

The photos were taken at Granite Gorge Nature Park, Mareeba.

 When you think 'country', what comes to mind? In the world of fashion, country is inevitably associated with plaid shirts, denim overalls, huge hats and questionably stained shoes. Although your local bogan isn't exactly the next it-girl trend setter, fashion constantly takes inspiration from the very country traditions that we are all to fast to take the piss out of. (Myself included)

The denim overall is a perfect example of this. Although I love dungarees as much as the next blogger, stumpy-legged me looks about as good in them as toothless Brandine in her dollar shop get-up. This Honey & Beau* playsuit is like the denim dungarees more flattering, chic sister. Dotted with oh-so-Summery tropical flowers, the high neck and cinched in waistline make it perfect for casual, sunshine-drenched days. 

To add to the country feel, I paired it with this hat that you've seen a million times (exhibit A, exhibit B, exhibit C) on The Daily Luxe before. These Brogue's may as well be from the dinosaur age, as I honestly can't remember when I picked them up from Primark. Hint: I've not lived in the UK for over 4 years and Australia doesn't have Primark. **Weeps**

Donned in suitably chic, country clothing, I then made some furry friends. These cuties are a colony of wild rock wallabies. Lovely locals to Granite Gorge Nature Reserve, you can actually feed them from your hand! 

Apologies for my slowness on social media, my parents are here from the UK and I am determined to spend as much time with them as possible! Follow me on Instagram for my latest outfits and adventures.

  4. I love this playsuit and wish it was warm enough here in the UK to wear something like this. Instead I'm having to snuggle up in about 5 layers just to make it out of the house! I hope you're having a lovely time with your family :) x

  11. Such a cute romper and a fun post to read. Since I am from the states I have no idea of some of these terms you used but it was interesting and enlightening. I can't believe you can feed wallabies from your hands! So cool! Xoxo, Christine

  13. Wow amazing how you linked your country to Fashion ~ Cuz in Singapore, our fashion is more or less wearing comfy T-Shirts and denim shorts and kicking flip-flops on our so-called fashion street Orchard Road *LOL
    Weather's just too humid for fashion here. However, you look awesome in that romper Rach :)
