Since when does Internet deserve a capital i?

My Internet is having a little mood swing. I hope he is better soon so I can post the rest of these pics.
On another note: Is there anything more disappointing than falling over during your Olympic figure skating routine? Think about it.

skirting board

(supre skirt, diva necklace and black ring, equip blue ring, secondhand everything else)
Just finished my first week at work and have decided that I need some more work clothes already. I only have a couple of skirts that are anywhere near appropriate length for an office. Case in point-the above outfit...don't worry, I didn't wear it to work.
So how about it? Does anyone have any ideas for cool office outfits? I want to hear your ideas on appropriate office dressing!

Belated I know, but Vday wishes. Love donuts and Top Gear Live. SUCH a good girlfriend. Although we did go shoe shopping too.

last empty weekday

(jay jays jeans (shorts), target heels, secondhand everything else)
Have had so much fun exploring my new neighbourhood over the last few days. I've been walking around the epic park and riverside a couple of blocks away, and discovered an op shop just around the corner from me. It's run by the RSPCA so all of the profits go to impossibly adorable animals as a bonus. Yesterday I caught the ferry into the city (traveling by boat is so much cooler) and bought some new blue heels and had a bit of a a float in the south bank pool. As a side note, I actually saw some tourists take a picture of their daughter drinking from a bubbler.... and their son peeing. Seriously? Seriously.
Anyways these blue green shorts were a pair of jeans which inevitably transformed into cut-offs. It's a lot easier to pull of brights when they don't cover your entire legs. And I really just don't get into jeans that much these days, I tend to find them too constricting I guess. Plus DIYs that only involve scissors are just too hard to resist.

brace yourself

I got the job!! Thank you all so much for your comments over the last few days. I've also just spent my first night in my new apartment, so I am well on my way to becoming a REAL person.

I had been wearing these shorts to death, so I went out and bought about 5 more high waisted pairs on the weekend. OK the op shop was having a sale and they were 50c each. Well worth it. Even if I did just get chocolate all over my favourite new stone wash pair.

Got the keys to my new apartment today, and had an awesome job interview.
It's all coming together no?

I move the stars for no one

(supre skirt, second hand shirt and jewelery)

I was a little late on the bandage skirt bandwagon, but I'm glad I finally got on. I got this one because you can wear in higher or lower, or even scrunch it up depending on how demure you want to be. It's a pity they were out of the black though.
And what do you think of the man shirt? I love how comfy they are and I always pair them with something short to balance out the bulk. Are you a fellow fan? What would you wear with one?
