I am so relieved that Spring has finally sprung. We got off to a shaky start here in Victoria, as the weather decided to tease us with a glimpse of sunshine before dissolving into rain. But last weekend it felt like Spring at last. And I was extra pleased because it was warm enough to wear this new peasant blouse I got from the op shop a month ago.
I’ve shaved my head a couple more times since my last blog post. My hair was growing very fast so I decided to splash out and invest in a pair of clippers so that I could maintain my shaved side at home. It was a very smart choice. Although it’s been a bit nerve-wracking wielding the clippers myself, I’m much happier with the result. I’ve been taking my hair all the way back to a bristling number 1 cut, and then letting it grow out a bit.
The detailing on this blouse is just so pretty. I’ve been after an embroidered peasant blouse like this one for ages, but most of the ones I found were either badly stained or had a gathered waistline. As I have wide hips and shoulders and a small waist, blousy tops that are fitted around the hips look terrible on me. But this one hangs in a lovely way and I adore it. I picked it up for $3 at my local St Vinnies.
These red clogs are another new thrift store find. They were just $4 and had never been worn. They will go so nicely with many of my summer dresses and skirts and look great with jeans.
I am wearing:
- Bambi necklace from Diva
- Stirling silver hoop earrings
- Peasant blouse (thrifted)
- Jeans from Target
- Red clogs (thrifted)
I wore this outfit to go out for a bit more op shopping and then treated myself to coffee and cake at one of my favourite cafes. It felt like the perfect outfit to celebrate the beginning of the new season.
