Awkward:
Seriously disputing something. And then you're wrong. Oops.
Queues.
Trying to take a selfie in traffic.
Being helped by the same person, at a certain drive-through, three times in a row. I eat what I eat, M'am.
Having that last bit of Purity, and liking it.
The hostess giving you the eye when your baby makes a sound, or moves, in church.
Singing, Quacky was a duck... to myself.
"Hello." "Fine, thank you." What's wrong here?

Awesome:
Husband. For a zillion reasons.
...one of them being insane new shoes.
Leftover pizza.
Chocolate mouse.
August. September. October. November. December. Okay that's much longer than I thought.

Just a month until Spring!

Monday Mix

Skirt: Vintage via Lost & Found; Shirt: Miss Boss; Shoes: Foschini; Bag: YDE


Plaid and leopard print has been friends long before I realized. Which was yesterday. It was like I had a genius plan to pair the two. Then later, I looked around on Pinterest and discovered it wasn't my idea after all. It doesn't surprise me, I mean, just look - these two were made for each other. I can't wait to pair leopard print with a traditional red plaid print next.

Happy Monday! Have a great week.

I dress better in my head.

Skirt & Jacket: Mr Price; Layered Tops: Pure; Shoes: Rage; Bag: YDE; 


I love all these pieces, maybe just not together. I dunno. This look may lack the edge I want. Or, maybe the cropped biker jacket adds some edge? The problem may be my hair. I don't know. Sometimes I dress better in my head.


See our Thursday tradition, here.

I put a sleepy baby down to sleep, and our eyes meet.

Isaiah's tears halted when returned to me.
This coat, from the kiddies' section at Woolworths.
This shoe I've just received from Mr Price. Love!

Sporty, not really

Skirt: Mr Price; Top: Quirky Stylista for Mr Price
Coat, Tights, Socks & Boots: Woolworths
Neckpiece: Cassandra Featonby Smith at Mr Price
 Bag: Foschini; Sunglasses: ALDO


I wanted to wear something quirky, and a little bit sporty, this morning. Without a second thought, I pulled out these socks and skirt, and built this look on that. That sounds like I spent a lot of time getting dressed this morning when, really, it was a grab-and-go kinda morning. That's how Monday usually goes, isn't it? 

Anyway, I like it. Paired with these knee-highs, this skater skirt reminds me of my hockey days, which lasted just a season but hey - I still tell people that I played hockey in my day.
