keeping warm, Barbie style

Scored this neon pink beanie at Hot Dollar... I couldn't resit getting all four colours actually!

pointy pink

The cost per wear on these pink Target heels is already getting pretty low, and they are even on sale at the moment for $32! I need to start searching for a similar black pair methinks!

Hope your weekend is going gangbusters!

grey sweat shorts

(thrifted pink sweater, Witchery sweat shorts, Vintage leather bucket bag)

Totally forgot I had these sweat shorts and that I was going to work "le jogging" over the Summer, so I seized the opportunity to wear them when it was warm enough on Sunday afternoon. We went for a hike up Mount Ainslie earlier in the day, and the shorts and the jumper combined made for the ideal level of apr├ęs hike yummyness.

rainbow crochet blanket

I'm fairly sure this blanket has magical properties. It came into my possession last weekend when I went looking at the op-shop for a some crocheted granny blankets (as you do). And although I am absolutely a Summer girl at heart, one thing that I love about Winter is the snuggle factor. Having the option to swath yourself in blankets to watch the sun set or lie on in a smooshy mountain of pillows and doonas to read with the heater on is pretty radical when you think about it.

lazy Friday and Saturday

(Jay Jay's striped tee, thrifted jeans, Target black Chelsea boots, vintage leather backpack)

Yesterday's comfy work outfit. Today was also a comfy and fun day... Did a little thrifting and enjoyed the sun for a while, and just got back from Costco where boyfriend and I stocked up on Reese's peanut butter cups and ate giant slices of pizza. Now settling in to watch the new episode of Community. An ideal Saturday in my opinion!

you're so awkward just like me

I am definitely in need of some inspiration recently! You can find all of these photos on my We Heart It page.

double denim

(Zara denim chambray shirt, Tempt mustard denim shorts)

Donning the double denim Brokeback Mountain style, with a splash of mustard for a twist for work yesterday. Today I'm heading to an engagement party today and painting my nails like mini disco balls in celebration. Happy Saturday!

red jumpy

Haven't worn this jumpy since Valentine's Day, so I thought I'd crack it out again. It's so soft and yummy!

berry lips

This week I've been rocking bare eyelashes with different shades of lipstick and gloss. I read that this is a good way to wake your face up if you are looking tired, as eye make-up only draws attention to sleepy eyes, while bright lips create a welcome distraction. I patted on a little red lipstick to get the matte berry shade. Fun!

everything is beautiful really

Sometimes I think it must be amazing to live in the country. Sometimes I pretend with my Zara cowboy shirt.

fairy floss pink

(thrifted everything)

In my cozy fairy floss jumpy yesterday to see Canberra V Newcastle in the Australian Roller Derby League. Wearing such a sickly sweet colour is my way of standing out in a sea of tough girls I guess. But seriously, it was a lot of fun and the girls were so gnarly, respect!

Have you ever been to a roller derby game? or competed in one? I would definitely recommend it for an interesting night out!

pastels and royal blue

(Just Jeans pastel top, thrifted jeans, Sportsgirl clutch, Kmart sneakers, Tree of Life silver knuckle ring)

Comfort came first yesterday at work.

I've decided not to buy any clothes for the month of May, so today instead of going shopping as I often do on weekends, I'm going to go out for brekky and then look at some open houses just for fun.

How are you guys spending your Saturday?
