I wear a mink DIY maxi skirt, and suddenly I'm in the tropics

Forever New sequin crop top (similar here)
DIY maxi skirt knotted (similar here)
H&M cardigan (similar here)
China Markets sandals (similar here)

Hi all! Thank you again for such beautiful comments, they really keep me going and making me believe that the blogging world can be kinder than most worlds.
I'm doing a quick post today, because I've got to head out soon to meet my best friends in the city. I'm wearing my maxi skirt that I sewn myself a few weeks ago, and is now perfect for the Spring weather in Sydney. I bought this fabric because it was a stunning mink color, and the silky heavy fabric was nice to the touch. I paired it with a crop sequin top (sorry for the bare midriff!) and a leather belt. My make-up is simple; a bright orange blush, with black and gold eyeliner and a pale pink lipstick (all my makeup is MAC). Standing around the tropical-like green plants really made me feel I was in India or south east Asia.

Speaking of South east Asia, my mom is actually staying in Cambodia right now until November, she rang me today saying there are crazing floods around the Mekong River and has to get around by boats. But she is safe, and she seems to enjoy it.

I need to go on holidays, hopefully New York soon <3
I'm off to meet my friends now! Have a great weekend!
xx Natalie

P.S I love love love this ASOS parka. I'm not in Autumn though :(

Skirt is beautiful, love it most that you did it yourself, I can see the 'fall' of the fabric ... such a nice find.
So glad your mom is getting around the bad weather in a positive attitude :)
