I cannot believe that it is Wednesday tomorrow - this week is flying by. I have a few outfits to show you - so lets not muck around:
First up, lets do some backwards things - Frock on Friday:
Before Friday, there was Thursday:
|1980s yellow skirt $2 Toffs|
Zambesi for Glassons tee shirt $2 Hospice Shop
White leather belt 50 centrs Hospice Shop
Yellow shoes and yellow flower - retail
Earrings by ODI
Again, a $2 Toffs skirt which I think dates from the 1980s, and it only needed a good wash and an iron. I love polka dots and I love stripes, so imagine my happiness when I found a skirt with a dot and stripe pattern. Very happy.
I also really love the big yellow flower. It. Is. Very. Bright.
Before today, there was yesterday. Yesterday I channelled some pacifica and wore a mens Hawaiian style shirt, made in Australia of soft rayon with a cool car and surfer pattern.
Would it shock you if I said it was also a $2 Toffs special?
Nah, you are getting the general idea from these posts.
|Retro rayon shirt $2 Toffs|
Red skirt $4 Hospice Shop
White belt 50 cents Hospice Shop
Denim jacket and yellow shoes retail
Yesterday it was beeping cold and a southerly so I was not standing in my usual "take the picture now" spot. My hair was in a quiff of sorts until the southerly untangled it. If you can see it, on my jacket is a tiny enamelled Bambi brooch.
So where does this blog post end?
Today of course!!
|Truly Fair vintage dress $8 Presbyterian Support|
Fabia vintage shoes $2 Hospice Shop
Cardigan $4 Hospice Shop
Paua necklace and bracelet gift
Paua ring - Barking Fish Emporium Port Chalmers
Opal Ring Trademe
Today was calmer and warmer! YAY! I read somewhere that New Zealand has had the warmest February since 1973. That is a long time. I think I am the most tanned I have been too. You can see how wrinkley my hand is and yes, its bad for me to get burnt because NZ has very high UV. I wear sunscreen on my face everyday. After seeing that photo I think I should wear it on my hands too.
Right, so now I am up to date with outfits.
Lots of other things have been happening.
Meeting with builder about house. Lots and lots of emails between us and the draughtsman. Working on the enormous pile of wood and trees on the section trying to sort stuff out to put through a shredder / chipper thing. Looking at all the nettles and weeds and thinking how quickly mother nature takes over bare land.
My 11yo goes to school camp tomorrow for 3 days.
She is gleefully telling me she will be 13 next year.
Getting a pile of clothes and shoes ready for her to take makes me realise that my baby is growing up.
This weekend I am taking part in the Relay for Life which is a fundraiser 24 hour walk for Cancer. I have taken part in the last 3 held here but this year it is inside the new roofed stadium. So there will be no chance of torrential rain and mud spoiling things.
I doubt there will be outfit posts as my team are wearing an assortment of tinsel items from the $2 shop :-(
Someone suggested a "onesie" from Bed Bath and Beyond.
I made retching sounds.
I will wear decent walking shoes, jeans and a tee shirt.
Relay for Life is not a reason to buy more $2 made in china tat, or polar fleece onesie.
Thank you all for your comments and feedback.
I will try and post a FOF before I start the relay.
Hope you all have a good week!
