Seriously, 2013, do you really plan to zip by this quickly? It feels like only moments ago that I was celebrating new year’s, and now it’s February. Sheesh! Just slow down already.
I wore this outfit to hang around the house, watch many episodes of Sex and the City, crochet and go out with my Nana for her birthday.
I get so many comments from readers telling me how much they love it when I wear bright colours. Let me tell you, even though I adore my brights, I am a huge fan of black-and-white outfits. I think it’s my inner teen goth who revels in pairing these two stark shades together.
I am wearing”
– White tee shirt with rose print from Sass and Bide
– Sportsgirl skull scarf
– Black and white pleated skirt from CKM
– Jolly Roger ballet flats from Shoe Bizarre
– Mismatched earrings (one from the chemist, one found during a walk in the park)
– Jade bracelet which belonged to my mother
– Liquorice allsorts ring
– Amethyst ring
– Brown resin ring from the Violet Town thrift store.
I’ve wanted a scarf just like this for ages. I’ve found a couple that were O.K, but not exactly what I was looking for. When Ross and I were shopping last weekend, I found this beauty at Sportsgirl. The print is perfect, the fabric is so soft and the scarf is massive. Plus it was heavily discounted, so I only paid $8 for it. Score!
As you can see, I’m still in flats. It turns out that I’ve hurt my ankle a lot more seriously than I previously thought. I have had to take a week off work because I can’t really walk far or be on my feet for more than a few minutes. I went to the doctor two days ago and she thinks I may have torn a ligament in my ankle. I had an x-ray yesterday and I’m waiting for results.
I had fun with my makeup today. When I started getting ready, I originally wanted to have fairly light eye makeup and dark lips. Then I did my brows and they turned out darker than I’d intended, but I really liked the look. I just decided to run with it, and use some darker brown shades on my eyes. Overall, I am very happy with the way this look turned out.
It only occurred to me just now, but this look isn’t terribly different from my White Queen makeup that I did for Halloween last year. I used a lot of the same products for my face today.
I hope that you’ve had a fantastic day, and that the week keeps throwing awesome things in your direction.
