When my alarm sounded at 7am I groaned as I rolled over to keep it from waking Matt. For once I could have kept sleeping. Normally I’m up well before my alarm and ready to start my day before sunrise.
Maria and I missed boxing on Tuesday, so we were both really keen to have a good session this morning. I also bought a bulk pass before their “4 months for the price of 3” offer expired. It’s always hard to hand over a wad of hard-earned cash, but in the long run it’ll save me between $250-350 depending on how dedicated I am, thus paying for itself. So cheers to prepaid boxing until October!
Today’s main event was afternoon tea with Matt’s brothers, parents and grandparents. This called for a dressy-but-not-too-dressy ensemble and some quiet accessories.
Before Matt and I had yummy Thai curry leftovers for lunch, I whipped up some white chocolate macadamia muffins to bring to tea. Honestly I don’t know what I was thinking, after birthday cake people were pretty stuffed!
Picking today’s outfit was fun because there was an event to dress for. I know there will be plenty of days this month when I’ll lack motivation. I especially love the weekends because I can actually dry and style my hair rather than having to quickly tie it back on my way out the door.
My watch was a ballsy purchase. You never know if a chunky white watch will go with everything, but it’s turned out to be a very current, stylish piece. I like it so much better than the one I lost at the casino (it fell off).
For me the bag is the most exciting part of today’s outfit: A vintage little guy I found buried in a local Perth boutique. When I bought it I felt like I’d finally found that great timeless little satchel that goes beautifully with my relaxed daytime style. My friend Tahlia was with me when I bought it, and she was totally gutted not to have found it first.
These final two photos highlight the lovely necklace I included to add that bit of color the outfit needed. Today was sunny in Perth, so no need for scarves or coats. The necklace was the perfect replacement for a pretty scarf. I cannot remember where or when I bought this, but it reminds me that I have outgrown my aversion to gold jewelry. I still prefer silver and white hues, but I have slowly incorporated a few yellow trinkets into my jewelry box. I also wanted to include these photos because this is the most I’ve ever looked like my sister, Eleanor.
Tonight I’ve thrown on my pjs to cook dinner and watch a little footy, but I’ll slip this great outfit back on when I head to Claire’s for a much-anticipated Buffy marathon (judge if you will, but it’s an amazing show). Tomorrow I have soccer in the morning, but singing rehearsal will be a great opportunity to show off outfit number 3! Just have to figure out what that will be…
