Matchy-Matchy Skulls!

Image
As I've mentioned before on the blog, I love a good matchy-matchy thematic outfit!  With the colder weather finally here, I was excited to go through my scarves and pick one to wear.  I recently bought a pair of pink skull earrings, so I thought I'd wear my pink skull scarf to complement them.  Of course any good theme needs a matching bag, so I reached for my embossed skulls bag to complete the outfit!
Now all I need is a pair of shoes with skulls on them to be the master of matchy-matchy!😂 I thought my unicorn shoes were a fun alternative instead!  Plus, I don't want to be too predictable, right?

Like a moth to a flame!

Image
When it comes to clothing (and accessories!) I cannot resist an animal motif.  In fact, if I am walking past a market stall or shop and I see a top or skirt emblazoned with an animal, I gravitate towards it like a moth to a flame!  (Sorry! I couldn't resist!)
When I first saw this top on the rack, I thought it was covered in butterflies.  As I was trying it on I realised they were actually moths!  I know that I was terrified of moths as a child, so I temporarily cringed at the thought of being covered in them!  In spite of my childhood fears, I knew I had to have this fun and quirky design.  
The outfit: Top: H & M Skirt: Crossroads Boots: Colorado

Earrings: Eden Grace
Bag: Sportsgirl Ring: present from Mum
This is me fluttering off to find my next great purchase!!

Jaunty Jeans!

Image
I've been wearing jeans so much lately!  Up until recently I hadn't worn jeans for many, many years due to my umbilical hernia.  I just could not find a pair that fit comfortably.  Since I had my hernia repair surgery last year, I have been waiting for the cool weather to come so I could buy a new pair of jeans!  
I bought this pair recently and they are just so comfortable.  In fact, I never knew jeans could be this comfortable!  Here are two ways I've worn my new jeans in the last few weeks.
Outfit 1: Jumper: Katies Jeans: Suzanne Grae Shoes: Hot Chocolate Designs
Bag: Rockmans


Ring: Lovisa Necklace: Katies Earrings: Bought at the markets


Outfit 2: Top: H & M Jeans: Suzanne Grae Shoes: Rivers

Raining Cats & Dogs!

Image
I just love the weather at the moment: cool and rainy.  It's the kind of weather where you just want to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a cup of tea.  Fortunately, I am able to do just that today!
This is the outfit I wore yesterday.  I chose to pair my patchwork print skirt with a pink long sleeved top and grey knit vest.  I bought this knit vest at the same time as I bought my mint coloured vest, that you can see here.  I'm so glad I bought one in each of the two colour choices available because they are so versatile: not to mention warm and comfy! 
I chose to accessorise with my new necklace and bag.  This necklace is another one of the handmade necklaces that Mum recently bought at her local craft markets.  I bought the Scotty dog tote the other day.  I just thought it was so adorable and I love the colours.  I knew Amber wouldn't be impressed with the dog tote, so I added my cool Instant Karma Cat brooch to keep her happy!!😂 The outfit: Top: Big W Knit v…

Hello Hummingbirds!

Image
I was so happy to wear my hummingbird knit top on Friday for the first time this year!  I bought it last year and it fast became a firm wardrobe favourite.  It's quite a lightweight knit, so it can be worn by itself on days that aren't so cold, or layers can be added under it or over it!  
I really love the colours in it and of course, the adorable hummingbird motif!  I had several compliments about this knit from both the adults and kids where I volunteer on Fridays! 
I chose to pair it with one of the necklaces Mum bought me at a recent local craft market.  I love the shiny purple colour of this necklace and the fact that it is made locally by a very talented octogenarian!  Mum bought me four necklaces in total, so expect to see the other three very soon on me and if possible, mood permitting, on Amber too!!
The outfit: Knit Top: Caroline Morgan Jeans: Suzanne Grae Shoes: Diana Ferrari Bag: Tasa Jara

May Retrospective

Image
How is it possibly the end of May already?  I know I say this at the end of each month but I just can't believe how fast this month has gone by!  So, tomorrow it will be the first of June and the first day of winter.  Today there was actually a cool change and for the first time in sooo long I wore a jumper!  Yay!  
Although winter here is mild compared to the southern parts of Australia, it is still so nice to be able to start wearing long sleeves, cardis and jumpers.  Before June starts though, I thought I would look back on my favourite ten outfits for May.

Bright in Pink!

Image
In my attempt to regain my missing mojo, I thought a colourful outfit was in order!  As well as dressing in vibrant colours, I thought it was also the perfect time to wear one of my favourite brooches again: Sammy the Sloth!  The thing I like most about wearing Sammy, is that people always smile when they see him.  Seeing others smile is definitely one way to improve my mood.  Shopping is another way! (my earrings and watch are new by the way😉).
Without boring you with details of my waning mojo, it is to do with establishing a new career at 41 years of age.  You see, the Masters course I am doing will qualify me in a new profession that I am passionate about.  The problem is that I have close to zero experience in this new field.  My worry is that when I graduate, finding a job will be difficult without experience.  However, in order to gain experience I need to get a job!  The old catch-22.  It's just so frustrating!  In my previous job I was at the top of my game and now I'…
