Just wanted to be comfortable at work, it has been a crazy long week. I know that next week will be quieter to make up for it. Got to meet and work with some really lovely people, but it was a very busy week that pushed me out of my comfort zone a lot. The stress certainly won't be missed!

Here's what I wore to run some errands and walk Cooper today:

Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs

Today was a lovely warm day, the perfect Saturday. I caught up on blog reading in the morning, ran some errands to pick up some essentials to help DH kick his cold, walked Cooper, and just relaxed and enjoyed having some time to rest. Thought this dress was a lovely choice in the morning, but there was the odd gust of wind to catch the hem that had me wishing I had picked jeans, haha.


Last worn: pink sunniesnavy dress, shoes, Chloe Ethel bag.

Coloured Denim: Pink Leopard Print and Chloe Ethel | Purple and Vintage Chanel Bag

Here's what I wore to go to the office on Saturday:
Top: band tee from KissChasy "Bones and skin" tour
Belt: gifted Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet in pink
BagChloe Ethel leather satchel in sweet pink


It was a long day, and dark and rainy when I went to take photos, so another indoor shot. Yes, what I wore to the office on the weekend :( We had to come into the office to get more work done on a project. It felt very wrong going into work on a Saturday! Wore these pink jeans and pink accessories to add some cheerfulness to my look. I've always thought the pink leopard print was too loud for the office, but on a day without a dress code they were perfect. The thongs weren't an issue either - there were a few people running around barefoot for maximum comfort!


Last worn: kisschasy tee, pink leopard print jeans, thongs, Chloe Ethel bag.

Here's what I wore to go to a birthday lunch and work at Church Online today:
Top: Just Jeans black lace detail tank
Jeans: Jeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans (New Purchase)
Shoes: New Look black bow detail peep toe heels
Bracelets: the usual plus old multi-coloured bangle set, Indigo Rose Design black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap from Reebonz


Bought these awesome purple skinnies when I went late night shopping after work with my mum and sister. I'd seen them in store and online a few times, but wasn't sure if I could justify another pair of jeans. When we saw them in store this week, they were only $30 so I finally caved and bought them. Such a nice purple, I'm so glad I got them! Dressed up a little with heels as I knew I wouldn't have to do much walking today.


Last worn: lace detail tank, vintage Chanel flap. First wearing of the jeans, and first time I've worn the heels on the blog.

SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey

Close up of accessories and bag:

My sister in law no longer wanted this shirt, so she passed it onto me. I think it's great for work and I really like the polka dots. It's got little ties on the sleeves and one around the body so you can pull it into more of a peplum shape. Will have to try that next time.


This is the first time I've worn the shirt as it was recently given to me. The skirt was last worn here, shoes here and bag here.

Spent some time enjoying the sunshine today! Just a really casual outfit, denim shorts and a tee. Added my Rebecca Minkoff sandals to dress it up a little, and I thought pink was a nice colour with the lilac. I bought them months ago in a Shopbop sale and this is the first time I've worn them. Suspect I'll wear them a lot more as the weather heats up. Was a nice relaxing Sunday, a good way to end the week.

The glasses were last worn here, tee here, shorts here and bag here. It's the first time I've worn the sandals.

Liebster Blog Award and acupuncture

Busy day at work! Had an acupuncture appointment in the afternoon - my first session. It wasn't as sore as I had imagined, was really quite relaxing! :) Unfortunately still no exercise on my bike again though, as my knee is still complaining after I pushed it too much on Sunday.


Here's what I wore today:
Dress: ValleyGirl
Necklace: Chanel (via Reebonz)
Bracelets: the usual plus 2 freshwater pearl ones made by a talented friend
Bag: Chloe Ethel in sweet pink
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs black patent mouse flats


Been carrying my pink Chloe Ethel for a few days now.


And thank you to June at Stylish with a Budget for giving me a Liebster blog award!

So here are my 5 blog picks:

K at MakeEveryMoveCount
One of my best friends in real life, and she has a very inspiring blog.

A very sweet blogger, I always love to read her posts. She is a very talented artist and she writes beautifully too.

Becky and Frederik at The Fashionoclast
I don't know if they "do" blog awards, but they do have beautifully written pieces to really make you think about fashion, and very fun Frivolous Friday challenges that encourage me to expand my fashion outlook.

The Blooberrymuffin over at Blooberrymuffin.com
Another blogger I'm lucky enough to call my friend. I love all of her peektures.

Teodora from Teodora'sLookbook (who is also currently having a giveaway!)
The blogger that unknowingly encouraged me to buy this dress. How could I not pass on an award to the lovely Teodora?


Hope you all enjoy checking out the 5 blog picks :)

The wrinkly LBD

My wrinkled little black dress is brought to you by extra long meetings and being stuck at work for 9 hours with no air conditioning. The dreaded clothes wrinkles....

Here's what I wore today:
Dress: French Connection (that has a really nice skirt when it's not wrinkled out of shape)
Necklace: Made by a talented friend
Bracelets: The usual
Belt: Louis Vuitton "commete" Bandeau scarf worn as a belt
Shoes: Skechers
Bag: Chloe Ethel in sweet pink (with puff ball keyring)

Had to wear my Skechers as my knee was throbbing this morning - definitely overdid it on the exercise bike yesterday!

How cute is the little fluff ball on my bag? Got it as a surprise gift from one of my friends. It's very soft and fluffy. Just need to find a permanent place to put it now.

Closeup of accessories:


Fingers crossed the air con is working tomorrow! Will try wear something less prone to wrinkles just in case!

Garage sale goodies!

Very rainy afternoon, but nice morning. We went for a trip to the Beenleigh Baptist church garage sale in the morning. Cooper came along too of course, and loved being the centre of attention.

Here's what I wore today:

Tee: Jeanswest Agnes tee in khaki (From my Jeanswest haul here)
Jeans: again Jeanswest
Necklace: glass pearls made by a talented friend
Bracelets: the usual plus a gifted glass pearl and bow one, and 2 freshwater pearl bracelets made by a talented friend.
Bag: Chloe Ethel in sweet pink
Shoes: Balenciaga sorbet RGGH studded sandals

Really pleased to be able to wear my Chloe Ethel bag again :)

Closeup of accessories:


We were just going to the garage sale to show our support and drop off something for some friends, but of course there were a few impulse buys!

I bought these cute leopard print slippers that my mum had put aside for me - they fit perfectly and are so comfy! My mum always picks the best things! Cooper is still unsure if they are for me or him - he keeps biting them now and then. They are very similar to his fluffy toys I guess.


And a very last minute purchase was this exercise bike! Not planned at all, which frustrated DH a little. Oops!
Someone jokingly asked if we wanted it at the end of the sale, as they were packing up all the items that didn't sell to donate to the Salvation Army store. We had missed it when we were looking around before. They were very surprised when I jumped at the chance to take it! DH was especially shocked - I think this is the strangest impulse buy he's seen me get! Tried it out quickly and it worked great, although it's old and dusty it still works.

Those that know me personally know I've badly injured my knee a couple of times recently, and that's why I can't wear heels as much anymore. I used to wear them every day. One of the things the physio suggested for me was an exercise bike, to build up the strength in my muscles without having the varying terrain and resistance of  biking outdoors. The price and hopefully short term requirement for use always put us off getting one.

Very excited with my new-to-me bike and looking forward to using it to strengthen my knee.


What's the strangest impulse buy you've made?
