Hey there! How’s everything going? Summer has come to an end in Melbourne. It is finally time to dress cozy. I have been occupied with the usual, research at uni and deciding on the ideas for my next blog post. If you have been following me on instagram (@aditisawarkar), you had know that I recently got a tattoo! My friend and I went to the 2017 Rites of passage tattoo festival and decided to be impulsive for once. Tattoos are so addictive, I have already started to think about the next design.
So few weeks ago, my family and I took a short road trip to Daylesford, a town near Melbourne. We went a little further ahead to Ballarat. However, we missed out on the famous Sovereign Hill museum as we reached there around 5.30pm. The 1800s, an important era in the making of Melbourne still reflects in the architecture of Daylesford and Ballarat. I was so intrigued by this, that it actually made me think about the history behind a pair of dungaree. Don’t worry, I won’t be writing an essay here about the history! Apparently, dungaree originated in India, in a region called Dongri in Mumbai (would have never guessed it even in my wild guesses!).
It might come as a surprise, but the last time I wore a short dungaree, was probably at the age of 8. It was about time to live the days of old!
I wore an acid wash short dungaree with ripped details. As the dungaree was of a light colour, I decided to pair it up with an off-shoulder black crop and black boots with knitted detail on the ankle. The knitted detail compliments the subtle white stripes on the crop. Yes, just as everyone else, I have also indulged in a pair of fishnet stockings. I have been wearing these fishnet stockings under a pair of ripped leggings too! I love fishnet stockings. Need I say more?
Enjoy the look:
Oh, and I bought this from the Sovereign Hill gift shop!
