Tropical Heat Wave

Happy New Year!!! I wanted to thank you all so much for supporting and following Dusty Petals during 2012. I look forward to sharing so much more fashion with you in this year.
Melbourne has been hit with a heat wave this week. It is actually so hot that it is difficult to decide on what to wear without turning into a sweaty mess. I thought the best way to celebrate this heat wave would be to fashion some tropical prints. It wont be hard to find apparel with a tropical feel, as its a strong trend amongst prints this season.
Wearing tropical print screams out ‘I’m on holidays’ and what better feeling is there than that?
Below I’m wearing a Forever New playsuit with Nine West heels. I bought the bag in Hong Kong which is made out of neoprene, just like a wetsuit. I can chuck it in the wash whenever it gets dirty. My sunglasses are from Gidget and I found the cute floral headband in a costume shop.
I have styled some tropical inspired looks for you below.
Happy shopping!
Thanks for stopping by!
