A hint of lace.

Something I love collecting is vintage lingerie and nightwear however it can be a little tricky to venture with it outdoors. This dress I found last year from urban outfitters is perfect for that problem. It has the softness, delicacy and hint of lace one might expect but the blue polkadot print means it is not likely that you will be mistaken for having just rolled out of bed. For now my night gowns and robes are for me to enjoy lounging around the house in! 

This day was an adventure to a wholefood canteen in Alexandria called Bread and Circus. I am definitely planning a trip back soon. The food was delicious and anywhere with pink tiles and gourds everywhere is fine by me! I picked up the beautiful flowers as a welcome to my mum who was landing that day from London. They are nothing like the flowers you get in England so I was sure she would appreciate them!

Cat Lady.

The irony is that I am actually much more of a dog lady than a cat one. I just love things with cats on! They are pretty funny. This top has lead to many conversations with strangers, in fact on this day I was stopped by a woman who thought her 8-year old niece would love it. Not sure what that says about my choice in clothes but I am sure my 8-year old goddaughter would love it too! Probably the jelly sandals too..

Things had dwindeld over in this corner of the internet, but I am back ready to make a good go of it. I have just returned from London and I must confess that I am struggling to switch from winter to summer dressing. I keep wanting to add tights and jackets and have to remind myself that is not appropriate in 30 degrees!

A little blurry of me that last one, but gives you a glimpse of the view I have to live with. Just terrible.

Happy weekend all!

Abandoned Buildings.

My art school in Sydney used to be a mental hospital. There are lots of buildings around it that were once part of the hospital but now have been left empty just waiting to be explored, as we were doing on this day! And although you cannot go in any of these buildings, we certainly have a good peer through all the windows.

And of course, no wander through a park is complete without playing with many dogs....

Trouser Outfit.

It is a rare occasion these days when I wear a pair of trousers and I must say I rather enjoy it! The problem is that I always have a very specific idea in my head of the kind of trousers I would like, however in reality they do not seem to exist. This is when I think I will make my own and start excitedly looking up patterns and fabric....that is as far as I have got still!

This little stork was a gift from my dad that he was given when he stayed in The Storken hotel in Zurich. He spent the day being carried around and having his photo taken...lucky chap!!

May Daze.

Where has this month gone? I was happily thinking it was still the beginning of the month until I looked at my calendar and realised I only have two weeks of uni left for this semester...and essays that need to be done by that point!

Now that the weather has turned here in Sydney, I have been stocking up on a few new winter dresses and cardigans. To be honest, when am I not stocking up on new dresses, but at least now I have some sort of way to justify it to myself...maybe. I am sure a lot of you out there will understand!!

tickled pink.

Well I think this was probably the last day I could get away with just a simple 50s sundress until next season. Autumn has finally arrived in Sydney this week which means I will soon be able to dig out the fun coloured stockings...this makes the arrival of cold weather just about bearable!

My yummy strawberry smoothie matched my dress perfectly...
