As you know it was CrashingRed’s 1st Birthday yesterday. To celebrate we went for lunch in Manly. However, thanks to the wonderful Sydney weather recently, it started raining suddenly and we had to return home. As you know, a white dress is not something you want to walk around in when you’re saturated. Anyways, later the same day we made a second attempt to have our special celebrations and went to our favorite restaurant lately, Manly Pavilion for dinner.  Even though it was a bit late to take photos I insisted (poor Joseph) and here is the result.

Keep in mind, it’s my second outfit! I put a lot of effort in my first look – the one that got drenched by the sudden rain so I didn’t feel like spending another hour getting ready a second time. Instead I wore what caught my attention first, namely: basic black shorts (also here), scoop neck silk top and suede booties. Adding a gold sequinned jacket to the look made all the difference. Seriously, this Zara blazer (also worn here) is fantastic for putting great evening looks together with minimal effort.
