Canary


The most important thing about what you wear each day should be that it makes you happy. But upon wearing this dress recently, I have found that something as simple as bright yellow can make those around you significantly happier too. I had non stop greetings and smiles from strangers, commenting on the 'ray of sunshine' I was wearing. I've been hastily ticking off last minute errands and found this drop waist dress with raw edges has been my saviour for the last few days of unpredictable Sydney summer. I apologise in advance as every outfit post for the next few weeks might be my interpretation of a marshmallow of clothes to combat New York's cold.

I am ecstatic to announce Tuula has been nominated for "Newcomer Of The Year" for Bloglovin's 2012 awards. A huge THANK YOU to Bloglovin' and every single one of my readers, who have helped me every step of the past year and more. I'm honoured to be the only Australian nominated amongst some of my favourite fashion identities from across the world. It has been a while since I started Tuula as a travel and outfit diary, and it is my readers that have had the most influence on where this blog has been, and where it could go next. I sincerely appreciate your votes and words of support... bring on NYC!

You can vote for Tuula each day here x
