Today’s outfit post is a slightly sad one for me. This is probably going to be the last outfit post that I do in front of this mossy wall in the house that Ross and I shared. This afternoon I’m going to pick up the keys for my new flat, and by this time next week I’ll hopefully be living there. I’ll have to find a whole new place to take outfit photos.
So here it is: my final outfit post in this house.
– Red sequinned beret from Sportsgirl
– Red Pucca top (thrifted)
– Black and white striped rag skirt from Temt
– Black cut-out leggings from Rubi
– Red ballet flats from Steve Madden
– Lego ring from Nerd Burger jewellery
– Flower ring from Surfers Paradise.
It’s been a miserable couple of days, made more dreary by the task of packing up all my things. I hate moving, and I particularly dislike moving away from this place. The day I moved in I was so excited, so filled with hope and promise. It feels so hollow to be leaving with things in such a shambles. That’s why I’ve put on so many bright colours, to try to inject a bit of cheer into my mood.
This shirt is one of my favourite thrift finds. It’s the perfect mix of cute and kitsch and it suits my style so well. The little figure on the front is padded so she stands out from the rest of the shirt, which is a fun touch. It cost me a grand total of $3.
So next time I write an outfit post it will be from my new place. I’m going to be without internet for a few days after I move, so don’t panic if my posts are a bit slow or sporadic, or if I don’t reply to your comments or emails. I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth, I’m just in an internet-free zone.
Wish me luck!
