Celebrating the beginning of warmer days with a sarong wrap.
Wearing: Violet & I crop top, Bohemian Traders Blossom Days sarong wrap (worn as pants)*, Unlabelled sandals
Ever since the end of summer, I’ve been waiting uncharacteristically patiently for the sun to grace our Western Australian skies once again.
Finally, the days of intermittent sunlight & warmth have arrived & soon I’ll be spending every spare minute at the oceans feet.
But for now, frolicking through hay fever ridden fields of Australian flora & weeds will have to do…

True to my style, once I received this pretty, oversized sarong wrap in the mail, my first concern was “how do I make this less girly & how do I not look like my mom?”
The answer? Turn them into harem style wrap pants. Sarongs can be worn so many different ways but I definitely did not want to look like the spitting image of my Asian mother who thinks it’s appropriate to answer the door in her traditional Thai sarongs, so I decided to wrap them up as pants & if you knot the ends tight enough, you never have to worry about them coming undone or loosening up & you’re free to frolic as crazily through the forest as you please.
Not sure how to wrap it as pants (or any other way besides throwing it over your shoulders as a cape?) No problem. Youtube sorts out most of these problems.
Along with labradorite, moldavite & turquoise, moonstone is one of my favourite stones. With a rainbow adularescence shine across (these photos do no justice), moonstone is said to boost coincidence & synchronicity throughout your life & even if you don’t believe in that kind of thing, it still makes a beautiful piece to wear. Get this one from the moonstone jewellery shop called Moonstone Magic.
