This time last year we spent Australia Day in Bali on a day trip to Lembongan.
Plenty of Aussies on board the boat but lots of other nationalities too. No pavlova or Triple J’s Hottest 100 though.
This year we’re hosting our families. Not a huge gathering but a gathering all the same. The cool music kids (big and little) in the party are all set for the Hottest 100 and I’ll ask stupid questions like who sings that song about a 87 times.
I’m one of those annoying people who knows a song from listening to it but could not tell you the name of the artist or the song’s name. Lucky Mr and Miss SY are like Google for music in that department.
Anyhoo, I digress.
We will be gathering. There is a pool. The banana lounges are ready and the barbecue primed for an all-day sausage tasting/sizzle featuring sausages from our new butcher (check out their range). There will be pavlova and caramel tart. And cocktail onions and kabana.
All the Aussie retro things.
I’ll probably be in a swimsuit with a cover-up all day but I’ve sourced the perfect one in the reduced-reduced sales.
And yes it features pineapples.
Are you having a gathering or heading to one on Australia Day? If so, have I got some Australia Day outfits for you?
Never fear below is a denim-underpants-free zone.
And remember with any of these style/shopping posts, look in your wardrobe first … inspiration begins at home.
At the beach
Picnic in the park
Any of these outfits appeal for Sunday – or any weekend day for the rest of summer? Tell me your Australia Day plans … if you have any?
