Monday Mornings…..

Monday mornings are definitely not my friends. When my alarm goes off I’m always hoping that when I open my eyes it will somehow be Sunday again – this method never seems to work. So when I finally pulled my self out of bed (after the 3rd snooze) I thought it was best to roll with the success of last weeks Monochrome outfit.

My parents visited on the weekend and showered me with belated birthday presents (score!) which included a fantastic new Review suit, whose jacket came in handy this morning. By the time I was choosing shoes I had perked up a little and thought I would switch things up a bit with these fun Zebra print kitten heels – not bad for Monday morning!

Outfit: Review Jacket (Myer, $99), Top (Vintage, $5), Pants (Thailand, $10) & Therapy Heels (from mum)

Golden Plains

Firstly, apologies for the terrible mirror shot, but this is the only picture I have of me in any of my outfits from Golden Plains Music Festival (GP) that was held over the long weekend.

This year was my 4th GP and it is definitely one of my favourite festivals. The crowd is very relaxed, everyone is having a great time and with 4000 less people than it’s sister festival, Meredith Music Festival, it’s much less crowded. In the frenzy of Birthday celebrations last week I didn’t get the time to follow my usual festival prep (read about it here) which unfortunately meant my digital camera was out of batteries, but I did take two disposable cameras with me which I hope to get developed and post soon.

Festival summary:

Highlights: Conor Oberst, Courtney Barnett & dancing on a hill away from the crowds at 4:30am

Most WTF moments: The Village People & glitter in places glitter should never be (thankfully not on me)

Downside: Everyone at work is refreshed from the long weekend and I’m still in recovery mode.

Outfit: CottonOn Hat (Ozsale, $3.50), T-Shirt (MBK Thailand, free!), Shorts (Thailand, $4), Frilly Socks (Ozsale, $3) & Shoes (Vintage, from mum)

The Festival Feeling

It has been just over 2 months since my last Music Festival and I’m definitely missing it. For the long weekend I’m off to Golden Plains Music Festival, the fourth of five festivals I’m attending this season. What better way to get in the mood then sneaking a cheeky festival T-Shirt into my work wardrobe. Thankfully not many people noticed and my boss even said I had a “groovy outfit”.

Outfit: Blazer (Jacqui E, $50), T-Shirt (Lawsfest 2014, $10), Pants (Thailand, $10) & London Rebel Heels (Opshop, $4)

Birthday

Yes, it’s true. Today is my birthday and I’m another year older (funny, I could swear I was still 18…). What better way to celebrate then some drinks and dancing with some great people? – which is exactly what I did on Friday night. Going out straight from work means some careful outfit planning. Everything in this look, apart from the pants, I wore to work (see yesterday’s post for proof). These leather look jeans are so stretchy they easily fitted into my handbag ready for a quick change in the bathroom to take me straight from work to the bar.

Outfit: Peplum Top (Factorie, $2.50), Leather Look Jeans (Ozsale, $20), Tony Bianco Heels (Savers, $20) & Bag (Thailand, $20)

White Night

On Saturday Melbourne celebrated it’s 3rd annual White Night – a twelve hour spectacle of local and international art in the Melbourne CBD. We were incredibly lucky to have gorgeous weather eliminating the need to even take a jacket out – it was so hot in fact that I ended up going out in a singlet instead of this 3/4 sleeved top. I also had a really fun time playing up the school girl vibes of this outfit.

Outfit: Bow Headband (20c, Thailand), Top (Supre, $8), Skirt (Misshop) & Heels (Ozsale, $10)

Magic Eye

IMG_3003Remember those Magic Eye books? The ones where you had to press you nose up against the book, look at it until it was unfocused then slowly move it away until you could see a picture pop out at you? That’s what this skirt always reminds me of. I have now stared at this image for too long, trying to see if anything would pop out, and now my eyes hurt. I hope you weren’t as silly as me and instead focused on the fact that its a fun and simple work outfit.

Outfit: Cue Blazer (hand-me-down), Basque Tshirt (Myer), Skirt (Thailand, $7), Belt (Review) & Heels (from mum)

Starting to Settle

2015/01/img_2959-0.jpg

Although I did manage to get one (very tidy) post out in my new place, now all of my junk…whoops, I mean stuff, is in its much harder to find a clear space to take a pic. This week I am making an effort to start putting in the time to do those little things like bringing out photos and trinkets and arranging them on my dressing table. Nothing makes me at home as much as having my priceless/worthless sentimental things out on display. A big bonus of the move is seeing all of my stuff as I arrange it, reminding me of things that had been lost in my cupboard for months, like this super cute blazer.

Outfit: Blazer (Valley Girl, $25), Necklace (Thailand, $6), Top (Target, $6), Pants (Ozsale, $20) & Sandals (Misshop, $10)
