The Owl and the Pussycat!

I hope you all had a nice and relaxing long weekend.  I sure did!  The weather here has been so unpredictable lately.  This morning it was raining quite heavily and then it was lovely and sunny and now the skies are looking grey again and it's become quite windy! It does make it a bit tricky when deciding what to wear of a morning, although it is still hot and humid, so no cardigans or jumpers to factor in to an outfit just yet!

This is only the second time I've worn this skirt!  I bought it about four years ago and wore it soon after that, but never again for some unknown reason!  I think I got it into my head that it was too long, tight around the stomach and a bit see-through in the sun!😂

I thought I would give it a go after all this time and wouldn't you know, it wasn't at all too long, tight or see-through!!  I'm so glad that I gave it another try after so long!  It's a definite keeper now!  I really need to go through my wardrobe and make sure there are no more hidden gems in there that are being blamed unfairly for my hang-ups!!😉

The outfit:
Top: Crossroads
Skirt: Tree of Life
Shoes: Instep
Necklace: Bought at Op-shop

Earrings & Ring: Lovisa
Owl Cuff: Present from Mum

Bag: Lily Bloom (Present from Mum)

Do you have a similar experience?  Did you recently re-discover an item of clothing after previously putting it aside?  Or the opposite, did you recently try on an "old favourite" only to find out you no longer like it?  Let me know!  I'd love to hear from you!  

Thank you for visiting my blog! XXX

  1. On your suggestion I'm going to look a bit more seriously in my wardrobe as I'm sure there are some things I've pushed aside by not liking the color, the length etc and maybe I'll find a new outfit also. That owl purse is absolutely amazing, what a great find by your Mum. I like the title as you have the owl purse and bangle and I certainly know of the pussycat, who is looking as cute as ever.

  2. Oh yes, this has happened to me too. I've had clothes I'd put into the give-away pile, then before actually getting rid of them, giving them another try, and feeling quite different about them. The owl purse is amazing and how cute is the owl cuff. Amber is looking fab with her necklace. I wouldn't be able to try that with Phoebe ... xxx

  3. I love this colour mix - the blue is a great shade with these warm browns. Amber matches purr-fectly! Nope, I never lose things in my closet, but I do forget about off-season things that I've bought and tucked away!

  4. Oh I'm glad you gave the skirt another go, it's lovely! I find some gems in my wardrobe when they get forgotten and suddenly rediscovered again, it's nice! :) I love the title of your post with your owl bag and adorable cat too, hehe!

    Hope you are having a great week so far!I have enjoyed the rainy weather. It's nice being able to still wear summer clothes without melting in the heat, haha. I do miss layering a little though, looking forward to it cooling off soon!
