With flowers in your hair...



Photobucket
To be honest with you this week has been a little overbearing, long days, trouble getting to sleep and finally getting the bill ive been dreading for the car prang i had a month or so ago... (sigh) even after having the most wonderful long weekend i feel like i need another break already..i am normally an extremely chilled person and it takes alot to get me down but as soon as money is involved my stress levels hit sky high...
Photobucket
Im sure that all of you dont know this but every single day i wear a boring black dress to work the same dress (uniform) everyday...i honestly dont think there is a worse way to start the day really having no creative input to your mood for the day through your clothes. the only way to express myself may be with a cute headband or my makeup!! so i know this sounds weird but when i wake up i think of the clothes i would wear today...and then pull them out look at them then get depressed and put on the black dress... This was my mood today...
Photobucket
I woke up a little early today (because my hair takes like an hour to dry) and there was the most amazing sunlight coming through our balcony...i wanted to sit there all morning with a pot of coffee and a magazine!!! i pulled this gorgeous tulle skirt and was in an instant bohemian inspired mood..something loungy but super pretty and flowy!!! i love weekends because i go crazy on my outfits.

I promise you now if i would keep it for myself..and almost did but since i have a blazer similar to this already i couldnt do it to my poor overstuffed closet...i love the different patterned lace and the beading is so stunning and still in perfect condition!!!! i had the best fun styling it up and although it looks soft and pretty with pastels it also looks amazing with a short black dress and brogues too...

Thats right as u can see i was running through the sticks and plants to catch the sunlight haha im so lucky to work near one of the most beautiful parks its filled with the biggest patches of ivy leaves and the tallest trees and with the weather were having recently im looking forward to having my lunch in the park and reading my book.... i feel a little sorry for the plants i trampled there, and some Tai Chi people looked a little unimpressed haha but i figure im used to making an idiot of myself now after last weeks effort...i may as well start taking photos with my tripod right smack in the centre of the city haha...(ok mayb not)

I went for the most delicious dinner last night at Barollo it was to say the least...amazing...and the fact one of my best friends is back from her travels all around Europe i sat there extremely jealous as she told me all about it...im so glad your home livvy XX

Hope your all having a wonderful week...remember i will be putting pieces in the shop on Saturday so come and check them out XX

Like a Rolling Stone...

Id officially like to tell u all...i think its Spring!!!!! After two of the most glorious days of sun im so excited that i can do my hair over the weekend and not end up looking like a drowned rat when i go out.. i no longer have to wear stockings with everything and i can finally expose my white white skin to some much needed sun...ahhh a tan here i come...well a slight brown tinge anyway..im not huge on the baking myself in the sun thing..

I took these pics outside the front of my townhouse and much to the amusement of my neighbours (who can see right over our courtyard by the way) watched me run back and forth in my little dress while the wind was trying to blow it up every two seconds...a tad embarressing!!!!! i think its time i conned my flatmates into taking pics for me..

This Ali Wood dress is such a Spring dream..button and tie up at the front i have spent alot of time figuring out new ways to wear it, in a bow, tie at the back or just in a knot..i wore the dress out for lunch at the beautiful Botanica in Scarborough for a girlfriends birthday it was such a lovely day..
Before botanica i thought id scour for some Vintage at the local Swapmeet or see what cute jewellery i could find..so i was up at 6:30am on my day off...(oh my) and bleary eyed along with everyone else who came too i went down the isles one by one i ended up with a few cute pieces...and...this original vintage stack of Rolling Stones paper magazines.. (gasp) i have such an addiction to reading old magazines they are full of such history and i find the ads so hilarious..so the rest of my morning was spent delving into these beauties...

So this week im planning to do an update in the shop and get lots of much needed work done..(whew)

Summer Fruit...



This week so far is proving to be one of the most exciting weeks ive had in a long time, Friends are coming back from holidays and most of all im anxiously waiting for my little Niece to arrive...only a few more days to go... im already overshopping little outfits and toys for her...im bubbling over in excitement...

And also im a sucker for a fruit pattern...hello summer!!! this dress was in my local thrift shop on one of my more successful shopping trips..its a classic wrap dress but the top was a little wide for me and i think was designed for women with a bit more cleavage than me...so i tied the corners with a little ribbon...im thinking im going to use a nice yellow ribbon in the future just to keep with the colours...i think my choice of black was a little off the mark..but hey!!! i wanted to wear it that day... haha

Im also excited for all the festivals coming up...especially this one im dying to see Cloud Control and The Jezabels...

Now im off to make another cup of Green Tea...Yum...
