ANZAC Day: Khaki, Pink and Leopard Print


DH and I went to the local dawn service this morning for ANZAC Day. To commemorate ANZAC day there are memorial services, parades and events to remember the brave service men and women who have given their lives fighting for our country.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
- "For the Fallen" poem by Laurence Binyon
Lest we forget. 

When we were at the dawn service I covered up with a leather jacket and scarf to keep warm, but I didn't take any pictures of my outfit.

Here's what I wore for the rest of the day:
Tee: French Connection oversized khaki tee
Necklace: Indigo Rose Design feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus my Balenciaga Silver Giant Triple Tour Bracelet in Rose Bruyere from HGBags Online
Jeans: Kmart grey leopard print cropped skinny jeans (similar here at shopbop and here at Cotton On)
Shoes: Asos Cleo leather long leg boots in tan (last worn here)
Bag: Balenciaga Handle clutch in Rose Bruyere from CultStatus (similar here)


Closeup of accessories:

I've worn these jeans with khaki and pink before, just a different shade of pink. I don't know what it is about them that makes me pull out the pink! Will need to wear them a different way next time. Any ideas?

  18. lovely boots, I like it with the leopard print pants and feather necklace print pants, very laid back grunge chic yet feminine with the pink clutch. The words from the poem are poignant, it's so meaningful to remember our war heros!
