OOTD: Australia Day

I love Australia Day; it's basically a mid-week public holiday purely for the purpose of celebrating how fab our country is. Now, I know  of course there is historical reference behind our January 26th public holiday:

'Australia Day, 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788 (you can read a comprehensive history of the evolution of Australia Day here).'

But what I love most about it, is that we get together with friends, family and loved ones, for beers, BBQ's and good times!



Dress: City Chic
Leggings: BigW
Cape: Woolworths
Aussie Pride: Born 1986



Here is a few of my happy snaps from the day!




There is nothing quite like cricket in the park on Australia Day! As a side note, my parents are leaving to Grey Nomad around Australia next week, so gave us our birthday presents early! Amongst the bag of goodies were these rad new costumes- how cool! :-D

Do you have a favourite public holiday????

  3. Favorite public holiday? Erm? Free pop-tart day? Actually, pretty much any day where they give out free food. Holidays with lots of alcohol are nice too, well that is pretty much every holiday. I hate to admit but I know very little about the history of Australia, it seems like such a divine place too. Speaking of divine, I love the dress. Great pictures and you always look like you are having more fun than anyone in the entire universe! <3
