I got these shoes at Green Eye in Cairns – I spotted them out of the corner of my eye on my way out the door last week, then looked all over the Internet for something similar. I couldn’t find them, so my stepmom and I took a special trip out to try them on. I have extremely awkward feet, so I wasn’t sure they were going to fit – but this was the last pair, and they happened to fit.
In other news, I may be losing my turtle whispering skills (my dad says, “turtle yodeler”) – we went out earlier today, and the only turtle I saw was one that somebody accidentally caught while fishing. I suspect they were scared away.

And an outtake:
Trying on sunglasses on a cloudy day at the pier. We saw Paul Allen’s boat – the Octopus. Rumor has it there are two helipads and a submarine. WHAT?

We went for a family drive up to Copperlode Dam today, where we saw this awesome beetle and I got yet another chance to practice my turtle whispering skills. I have a gift, y’all.
Today, I went down to the creek and fed the turtles. Unfortunately, I hadn’t considered the fact that I’m in Australia. And in Australia, the true rulers are the mosquitos. Fortunately, thanks to my Turtle Whisperer skills, I managed to see a couple of turtles before the mossies drove us back to the car!

Sorry for the brief hiatus. I started a second job (part time for now, but I’m switching to full time as soon as I can train somebody to take over my position) and it’s left me with no time at all. I still get up and get dressed, but by the time I’m off work, it’s too dark to take pictures and I’m too exhausted to put on mah bloggin’ face.
I did take a short break from drinkin’ the workahol last week to run down to the thrift store where I found this sweet blazer for a dollar. Seeing as I was two seconds away from dropping $70 on a knit pink blazer from Gap, this was remarkable. Plus, this one’s wool and the sleeves aren’t too long (unlike most blazers that droop way down over my t-rex arms).
In an uncharacteristic move, I decided to ditch the belt today and let my waist go undefined. A bit risky in a floral dress, especially with a boxy blazer on top. I think I’ll stick with my old belty ways from now on.
Oh, and I finally broke and bought black wedges. I’ve needed a pair of up-casual (fancier than flats but not as dressy as heels) shoes for awhile, and since I’ve worn them four days in a row, I’d say they were worth it. Thanks, second job, for making $30 for shoes seem reasonable again!
Until next time,
