Somewhere, over the rainbow....

After a stressful week, I felt like wearing something very bright and cheerful! The dress is sleeveless, so I added the black shrug/cardi to provide coverage.
My university study is stressful and I've thought of quitting several times already and it's only been a month!  It's hard not to be overwhelmed.  Wearing bright and colourful rainbow clothing and accessories is a good way to project an external image of fun and cheer.  Others then perceive you to be in a happy mood, so then you can fake it till you make it!!πŸ˜‰
The outfit: Dress: Present from Mum (Hawaii) Shrug/cardi: Crossroads Shoes: Holster Ring: Bold Ray Designs Bag: Rockmans
Bangle: Bought at Op-shop a few weeks ago.  Isn't the pattern groovy?!πŸ˜‰

Somewhere, over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  Even though I don't drink, I still like to celebrate the day by wearing green and enjoying a nice steak and Guinness pie!  
A lot of people celebrate the day here in Brisbane and Australia wide.  Approximately 30% of Australians have some Irish ancestry (myself included)!  For more info about how St. Patricks Day is celebrated in Australia, click here.
This is the outfit I wore yesterday to attend a training course.  I was in air conditioning all day so I could wear my nice new emerald coloured cardigan! 
The outfit: Top: Katies Cardigan: Present from Mum (Hawaii) Pants: Millers Shoes: Rivers Necklace: Lovisa Bag: Rockmans

Of course I couldn't resist wearing my four leaf clover earrings!

Amber was also happy to embrace her Mum's Irish heritage by wearing green!!πŸ˜‰
Do you celebrate St Patrick's Day?  Let me know!  I'd love to hear from you!

Shopping Spree!

I've been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, so I thought I'd share some of my purchases with you!  As usual, my shopping spree revolved mainly around buying accessories!  I also bought the cardi and skirt in today's outfit.  
Finding quirky and fun accessories makes me happy!  I just love stumbling across some great new treasures when you least expect it.  I hope you enjoy perusing my new purchases!

Thematic Dressing!

I recently went op-shopping and came across this fabulous skirt!  It is fully-lined and in great condition and features a quirky and fun print with various images and writing on it.  The first word I spied on it was "Paris".  I knew then that I had to have it because I knew it would complement my "J'adore Paris" top perfectly!   
I love thematic dressing and all things matchy-matchy!  I think it makes dressing more fun and creative!  I don't always dress to a theme, but when I see something that I know will go together well, I absolutely have to put them together!
Here are two themes I tried recently:
Outfit Theme: Paris! Top: Sussan Skirt: Bought at Op-shop Shoes: Rivers
Bag: Bought at Op-shop
Ring: Bought in Japan
Bracelet: Lovisa

Another outfit that just had to happen was a unicorn themed one!  I already had a unicorn skirt and brooch, so when I recently bought shoes with unicorns emblazoned on them, you know I just had to pair them all together!πŸ˜‰Initia…

Khaki Top, Floral Skirt & T-Rex Brooch!

I'm always on the hunt for unusual and quirky accessories.  I had a recent trip to one of my favourite local stores and had success!  One of my purchases was the cute Cherry Earrings in my last post.  Another of my new additions is this yellow T-Rex brooch.  So cute and quirky!  I decided to pin it to a khaki top and wear my long and floaty floral skirt.
