Surviving Sydney

Hello everyone! I am writing this post from my parent’s couch in Far North Queensland, where I have taken up residence and intend to reside (with zero-minimal activity) for the next six days.

For those of you who don’t know, I own and direct an elite full-time ballet school in my everyday life. We have just had a 15 week term, which was capped off with a whirlwind five-day trip to Sydney for the annual Sydney Eisteddfod, Australia’s biggest dance competition.

I always love going to Sydney. I suppose because of all the anticipation, nerves, excitement (and this trip, victories), there’s always a fantastic vibe, plus it’s a chance to dress like a normal person for almost a week! Considering I was in Sydney to chaperone, prepare, warm-up and watch my girls, I didn’t have an awful lot of free time, but Adeline and I did manage to sneak away one morning for 20 minutes for a few quick photos.

It’s rare when I’m at home on the Gold Coast that I need to dig out my winter woollies and start getting inventive with layering, but I definitely had to in Sydney. To survive the deep freeze, I opted for over-the-knee boots and high necks. I’ve actually been finding this year that the weight of a coat or the bulk of a scarf makes my shoulders tense up and I get the most horrendous headaches, so I’ve been trying to do without them where possible, but that means layering is essential.

I’ll have another Sydney outfit for you all later in the week, but for now, I’m going back into hibernation.
