Daily outfit 15/1/2013

I’m having a lot of fun with my summer wardrobe.  All through winter, I looked forward to being able to plan an outfit that didn’t consist of a million layers and thermal underwear.  I’ve been enjoying short sleeves, wispy fabrics and a distinct lack of unsexy undies.

DSCF7387 I am wearing:
– Purple pucci print pleated top (gift from my aunt)

– Pinstripe pants (thrifted)

– Platform shoes from Zu

– Amber earrings from my Nana

– Gold bracelet from my parents

– Gold heart ring from my parents.

– Wizard of Oz watch from Ross’s mum and dad.

DSCF7388I never realised until I typed my outfit description, but all of my jewellery in this post was gifted.  I also realised that I never buy gold jewellery.  It’s not that I don’t like gold, but I think that silver suits me better, so that’s what I choose for myself. It is nice to wear gold for a change though.

I liked the way that the pleats on my top mirror the stripes on my pants.  I think that kind of helps to tie the look together, and make the two clashing prints work together better.

I adore the cutout detail of these platforms.  It’s so unique and fun.

DSCF7394I kept my makeup fairly neutral, sticking to browns and coral lipstick.

DSCF7396Up-dos are a must for hot weather.  And it has been bloody scorching here!  It’s gotten up to 45 degrees on some days.  Thank God I have aircon.

Is there something that you don’t really buy for yourself, but which people tend to always choose as gifts for you?  I mentioned my gold jewellery, but I also have a massive collection of handbags, of which I only purchased two myself.  Do you have anything like that?

    • Thankyou! They happen to be one of my favourite pairs. I’m trying to make the most of the hot weather, by wearing all my strappy shoes and floaty tops while I can.
