I had every intention on rambling yet again about the pains and perils of an Australian summer. Like summer bandits, a God awful ghastly heatwave wrecking havoc and plaguing us with countless sleepless nights. But you know my summer bandits spiel; all woe is me.

So I’ve spent those balmy nights feverishly online shopping. And by that I mean adding winter woolies and long sleeved pieces to my wishlist. I’ve also entertained myself by composing various daydream ensembles, like this lovely set above. It mostly came to fruition after attempting to find a sheer white shirt online and not truly findingĀ  one that really caught my attention. You see, I’ve been in search of the perfect white shirt, one that sits and drapes in all the right places, that knows how to breathe with you and opens up daringly down the chest but in the most flattering and heavenly of ways. Something which is seemingly difficult for anyone cursed with annoying broad shoulders. That was until I encountered one from Australian label Witchery. There was something about the potential of that plunging neckline. Its billowy but flouncy nature and what appeared to be the ultimate flattering design and cut.

I knew I had to have it, and have it now.

As most online shopping tales go, unfortunately she was sold out online in my size. But I made sure to clear out my morning schedule and thoroughly peruse their brick and mortar store until I found it. And so I did. And as fate would have it, I actually found her and obviously made her mine.
