This funky top is in my all time most favourite great buys list. On a trip to the Valley Markets circa 2002, I came across the Ortarky stall and I loved this top. I knew it would be a conversation piece, different from everyone else’s summer tops and that I could show off Brisbane-made creativity wherever I went – all very important criteria for me. Rumour has it that Ortarky became Nelson Malloy but I must investigate that further. Anyway, after the storm yesterday it was still steamy this afternoon and I needed something cool to wear for cousins catch up barbecue so paired with Esprit dress shorts and bare feet it all balanced out.

This gorgeous Esprit skirt always gets lots of Christmas action here in Brisbane where it can be about 35 degrees this time of year. And I love to wear it with this hot pink Top Shop T because there is a bush here that comes out at Christmas time called the Lillipilly and it has glossy green leaves, pink leaves and pink berries. This combo reminds me of it.
Once again my whole outfit revolved around my Birkenstocks and the need to wear a red shirt in honour of the peace we pray for for the Morcombe family who can finally bury their son 9 years after he disappeared.
