Outfit breakdown: Skirt – Thrive (a NZ brand) from a shop in Havelock North, Salsa; belt (a gift from my Mum) – also from Salsa; cardi – glassons, black merino top – thrifted (Jigsaw); black tights – (?) possibly farmers; boots – dotti, necklace – number 1 shoe warehouse (!?), free with this hat!
We’ve been kind of hibernating around here. We’ve pretty much recovered from the flu, but I came down with an ear infection, which resulted in a burst eardrum on Sunday night.
My Mum had the day off work on Monday, so after I’d been to the doctor we looked around some lovely shops in Havelock North… Mum convinced me to try a couple of things on… including this skirt … and I fell in love. It cost a lot more than I normally spend on clothes, but as my Gran says I will take a dollar off every time I wear it. I will have to wear it a lot!
That’s ok, because I plan to – it’s something I imagine wearing all year round. I can just imagine it with a white singlet, lemon cardi and sandals in Summer.
Noah thinks it’s pretty awesome and always wants me to spin in it.. (I’m happy to oblige.)
We have a pretty quiet day planned here… just some folding of washing in front of Olympics, tidying up and maybe some crafting. It’s nice to dress up for yourself sometimes, not just because your going out. It helps that this outfit is super comfy too (the skirt has an elasticated waist-band.)
A couple of fun things arrived in the mail this morning – some vintage cotton reels and an old cotton reel holder… (if you’ve read this you’ll understand my excitement.) Looks like I’ll also be tidying up my craft nook…
What are you up to today?
