Fashion Friday: Tiller of the Earth

The weather has really been warming up so I’m able to wear sleeveless tops without having to carry a cardigan or a jacket. We live on air conditioning in the summer. The other day I actually got really cold in the office when I was at work, because of the air conditioning. I walked outside because I needed some sun and wanted to warm up a bit, but I went outside and was greeted by hot windy weather. Needless to say, I didn’t stay outside for too long and I was actually looking forward to getting back inside where it was much cooler.

Today it was exceptionally hot with a forecasted temperature of 42ºC. Australians love to talk about the weather to get a conversation going. I am also under the impression that it is a good conversation starter anywhere in the world, though. I can talk to someone on the other side of the world about the weather and one of the only reasons it’s interesting is because that person probably has the completely opposite weather to me. 😛

Despite today being very hot, I spent a lot of it inside my cold office building. And this photoshoot thankfully wasn’t done today but was done a few days ago!

In this outfit I took the opportunity to wear one of my more comfortable pairs of heels. They are the platform heels I wore in Blue Moon, and although they are quite high, they are really, really comfortable to wear. More comfortable than some of my standard heels or heeled boots. It’s pretty rare to find a pair of heels that is so comfortable.

I’m wearing a plain black pair of jeans – I have the same jeans in a shiny black colour, and also in a dark grey colour. I’m not sure which one is my favourite but whenever I wear one of the pairs, it’s usually the one I most feel like wearing at the time.

The top has a black back but the front is white with two layers, a sheer white layer with dalmatian spots and another opaque layer. The sheer layer has some ruffle detail down the front.

I wore a lot of peach and rose inspired colours and pearls in this outfit in terms of accessories. A rose gold bangle (which I have worn many times before), the peach coloured cuff from my September Helene Jewelry subscription box, and the one from my October box too. The ring is another from The Peach Box, which is actually a bit too big for my finger.

I got the earrings from Indonesia. They were quite cheap! The cube-shaped backing has a rose-shaped framing and there are small glass stones inside the cubes. I think they look pretty cool!

I named this edition Tiller of the Earth because of all the earthy sort of colours in the background. Because of all the rose and pearls I was going to name it Peach and Pearl but of course I have an edition named that already. 😉 The meaning of my name is actually ‘tiller of the earth’, which just means farmer, or cultivator, or controller… the meaning ‘farmer’ is pretty funny actually.

Wow. That’s hot, even for Florida. It’s 82 F (28 C) right now, and I’m still complaining. It’s November, and it’s still too warn for my liking.

As always, you’re looking lovely. 🙂 and yay for air conditioning.

Love the outfit and your accessories as always. I love the combination of this outfit :3 Everything is paired well! I also like the name of this FF. Very appropriate!

42C is crazy hot, though! If I was told that’d be the temperature, I’d totally not leave an air-conditioned place. Just, NO. I can’t do heat as it is, so that heat is ridonkulous!

That heat has been really blah. When you had the 42 I thought oh man. We had about 10 degrees cooler and that was brain melty. It’s good that you had done the photoshoot a few days before, it would have been toooooo much that day.

I love the outfit and photos. 😄

I always like your fashion choices. You look beautiful as always, Georgie!

The weather is always an easy conversation starter. Where I’m from, it can be bright and sunny one minute, and then the next is pouring down rain, so it’s a popular topic here, too. 😉 I am so jealous that it is warm there! It’s starting to get really cold here, cold enough to need a coat. So I’m always freezing and dreaming of the sun coming back again!

Thanks Becca! 🙂 We should swap, I am definitely more a fan of colder weather. I need to go somewhere where the summers aren’t as hot, but I think you would love Australia!

Jewellery on point, Hair on point, Outfit on point. You look so beautiful Georgie! Love this weeks fashion Friday! ♥️
