My Outback Outfit Look

These are the only photos from my trip to the Australian Outback where you won’t see me sweating profusely in crummy, old workout clothes. (For the rest of this trip, you should expect to be in hiking clothes or athletic clothing that breathes well.) I spent most of my time in Uluru being active, but on this night, I had a special candlelit dinner in the desert to attend, and wearing my map skirt, once again, felt like the perfect occasion. (I love wearing this map skirt when I’m actually out traveling and exploring!)

Also, most of the dresses/skirts I currently have planned to feature on the blog are WAY too warm for the 100+ degree temps I had in Uluru! But this map skirt breathes well, and it still looks nice with sandals. (And I wanted at least one outfit post from The Outback!) I was still a bit warm in this outfit, as this top is a bit thicker, but once the sun went down…it was absolutely perfect!

Our Stay at Pioneer Hotel and Lodges

The view of Uluru (a.k.a. Ayers Rock) you see in the background of my photos was from the Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge’s viewing area. (That’s where we stayed for this trip – it was very nice!) We were the only ones in the viewing area at the time, which was also very nice!

My audience, haha.

Ok, I lied; we did have an audience for these photos. I want to call them desert pigeons, but I believe the correct name for these guys, pictured above, is Crested pigeons. They’re a bit more interesting-looking than regular old pigeons!

And he mooned me..haha!

They’re apparently not fans of getting their photos taken either, haha. (Or maybe they’re teenage birds? Haha.)

I hope everyone back home in the United States has a wonderful time tomorrow celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family! I’m still debating what I want to do for it this year…and whether I should celebrate on Thursday or wait until Friday (when it’s technically Thanksgiving in the US), ah we’ll see! Let me know if you have any fun plans this year in the comments! And what’s your favorite outfit to wear on trips?

If you’re debating whether or not traveling to Australia’s famous sandstone monolith, Uluru (a.k.a. Ayer’s Rock) is worth the journey/cost…it most definitely is. Uluru was my favorite memory of our time in Australia.
