BBQ

(Thrifted sparkly sweater and Valleygirl shorts)

Along with my white sneakers this was a comfy way to spend a lazy afternoon at a BBQ for my boss's birthday. We even got to light a sweet fire in the front yard next to a huge monolith dubbed "Pride Rock". It was awesome.

stripes

(Jay Jays striped tee, thrifted skirt and bag)

This tee has become one of my absolute staples and it plays so nicely with anything else I happen to throw on in the morning. It also has that whole Goldilocks, not too hot, not too cold appeal going on that makes it a no-brainer for Autumn.

happy feet


Swooning over these Target heels I got in the mail this week! I love the hot pink so much and it's fun to try a point for something different.

ten bucks


On sale at Sportsgirl. A necessity to, you know, complement my other blue Sportsgirl clutch.

complement

(Valleygirl tie dye tank, thrifted jeans and quilted bag)

What I wore to work on Friday. I always love the contrast of a cool colour like blue with a warm colour like yellow or orange... basically I like to dress like a Michael Bay movie.

Hope you all had a gorgeous weekend! I'm looking forward to this week because we get Wednesday off! It's ANZAC day here in Aus :)

Saturday sparkles


Newest sparkly sweater. Yes, it's different from this one, it's baggier and could almost pass as a dress. Ten bucks from an op shop at The Entrance. Worth it!

of course I still wear heels in the rain!


Nothing brightens up a slushy rain day like neon nail polish and some Sportsgirl snakeskin heels I scored for $3 on Ebay!

hot weather hair and cold weather sweater

(thrifted sweater and bag)

Chinese food on Saturday night with Summer hair and a Winter sweater (perfect for Autumn I guess!).

lazy work outfit

(thrifted top and bag, Zara black pants)

Let's face it: No one wants to wake up on time for work on Monday morning, and I don't know about you, but for me that means I usually have to come up with a fail-safe outfit really fast at the same time as showering and inhaling cereal. Actually, I always secretly plan my outfits in my head while I'm still in bed each morning before work, but then sometimes they don't look quite how I expected they would and I'm forced (yes, forced!) to spend ages trying on different combinations until I've discovered something wearable.

I've learned that on Monday mornings it's best to go for something idiot-proof like all black with some killer heels. Sometimes I even try it on on Sunday night just to make sure.

What's your fail-safe work outfit for when you're in a rush?

two hearts


My new thrifted silver double heart bracelet, and some friendly neighbourhood daisies. My Grandma loved daisies so I have to admit I have a soft spot for them :)

leather and stripes

It's Heather in leather baby!

Kept things simple today and complemented my Bettina Liano leather paneled mini with a thrifted black satchel and this Jay Jays striped tee, which I am loving for its simplicity and general soft yummyness.

white wash


Another shot from yesterday, wearing my newly thrifted frill-bottomed top, Target bikini bottoms and Rubi hat.

Forresters Beach

(Waiting for my nachos at a cafe at the Entrance, hanging out on the rocks by the salt water pool, super-satisfying jaffa and apple pie ice cream, and the rocks at Forresters Beach)

Because I'm so incredibly lucky, I got to spend the Easter long weekend lolling about on the beach, reading, eating ice-cream and op-shopping. And everyone knows that op-shopping in country towns equals win.

I'd never been to Forresters Beach or the Entrance before, but I'd definitely recommend it! The beaches are beautiful but quiet, and basically anywhere warmer than Canberra is awesome in my book!

casual Friday

(Jay Jays tee, Mink Pink denim shorts, Kmart sneakers, thrifted clutch, Valleygirl sunnies)

This is actually my casual Friday outfit from a week ago, since today is a public holiday and I'm at home packing to go on a little vacay! We're heading to Forresters beach, just north of Sydney. For some reason, although it's the middle of Autumn it's incredibly warm this week, and it's going to be even hotter at the beach, so I'm super psyched.

What are you guys doing for Easter?

glitter and lunch


Having some eats at the go-to lunch cafe two minutes from my office. From memory I was daydreaming about my soon-to-arrive bacon and egg roll, while wearing my new sparkly jumper from Target.

snakeskin clutch


I have a couple of black clutches that I've thrifted over the years, but this is the one I've been toting around all week. Big enough to fit all the essentials and goes with everything of course.

Déjà vu

(thrifted shirt, Sporstgirl clutch, Valleygirl mustard shorts, Kmart sneakers)

The full outfit from Saturday. I picked up a tonne of awesome stuff op-shopping, including the thin chain necklace I'm wearing. I've been wanting one for a while now and I scored this one for $2!
