Sunset in Perth

Beach Look in Perth
Tee: J.Crew (liking this current one) | Shorts: Topshop 'Hallie' (on a huge sale if you happen to be a size 10!) | Sandals: Splendid | Bag: Valentino | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Bracelet: vintage (from my dear grandmother) | Watch: Michael Kors

After exploring Brisbane, Sean and I headed north to Cairns, where we saw the Great Barrier Reef and my fingers had their unfortunate encounter with the boat ladder. The day after I had surgery, we hopped on a plane across the continent to Perth, where we visited Sean's wonderful sister (and seriously considered staying forever).

My activities were somewhat limited with my recent injury, but I could still enjoy the gorgeous weather and unbelievable beaches. The climate and natural beauty reminded me a lot of California, but with so many fewer people! Perth is a bustling city, but not too far away, the natural landscape feels untouched and like it goes on for ages. It felt almost surreal to be so far from home.

Sean's sister took us to delicious Clancy's Fish Pub on City Beach in Perth for our first night there. The food was so fresh, and the view over the water was perfect. After a hectic few days getting there, the relaxed Western Australia beaches were exactly the recharge we needed.

After dinner, we snapped some outfit photos and watched the sun set over the Indian Ocean. It was my first time seeing this ocean, and it was beautiful (now I just have to dip my toes into the Arctic Ocean to complete my list--not sure if I'll be doing that ever).

Perth City Beach Sunset

One more snap from my Instagram to show you how lovely and turquoise this water was by daylight when we arrived at the beach. I ran in and dipped my toes in the water right after Sean shot this pic.

Hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse at Perth! More to come soon.
