Though this is another double post, it will be a short one (I hope). Last night my hairdryer broke when my head was still half wet, and I felt like just going to bed rather than staying up to recount the events of the day. I went out and bought a new one today, but I sense impending illness so maybe it’s too late. Here’s what I wore yesterday:
My coat doesn’t count as part of the challenge, but I thought an outdoor photo could be a nice change. I got it from an H&M in Budapest. Actually it was the day after I met Matt. It got me through Europe, but after this is over I need to go looking for a proper winter one for our trip to America.
I wore my Seed Femme navy capris, going for a functional high-water sort of look. It’s funny how wearing pants slightly above the ankle is cute when it’s on purpose, and comical when it isn’t.
Today I decided it was high time to bust out the flirty black skirt. Mostly I just wanted another excuse to wear winter tights. These are the cutest. I have to pair them with the right outfit to pull it off, and to be honest I love how this turned out.
After work I went walking around the city despite the rain. I found a hairdryer on sale and some much-needed spandex pants for outdoor winter workouts. My evening soccer sessions are getting colder every week, so I needed one more option for keeping my legs warm. Plus the half-marathon training is nigh!
Since I was unable to dry my hair properly, it was another good day for a cool-looking braid. It’s looking a little wind-whipped in the photo, but this is an inside-out french braid. Rather than tying it over the top, you tuck the pieces under one another. It’s difficult to achieve on your own head, but I somehow made it work. I had to make it twice to get it straight; it’s a tricky one.
Both today and yesterday I wore my new turtle earrings. I got them about a month ago from a little shop called Wild Lily Empire. There are a few of them in Perth, and they carry cute jewelry, bags, and little odds and ends. It’s a chic (and thankfully, affordable) little boutique. These adorable little babies get plenty of positive attention. I must admit, I’m in love!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow and the weekend. It’s absolutely freezing at work, so I’ll be counting down the minutes to 2:30pm. When I finish tomorrow, a friend is meeting me for coffee before leaving Perth. I’ve made so many traveler friends since I arrived; it’s a little sad to be constantly saying goodbye. Last time Jonna and I went for coffee we completely forgot to pay (though she did go back later to rectify that embarrassing situation). À bientôt mes amis!
