|My current flowers, looked better 5 seconds earlier in the sun...which I obviously missed getting my phone to take a picture of them...|
Just a warning, this is a photo heavy post.
SJ and I hit up the markets first thing on Saturday morning. Looks like now they sell kids too cause this guy was carting one around in his shopping trolley. He was cute, I wouldn't mind getting one like him.
After spending all morning at the hairdresser and getting my tan, we went to a fete up the road. Was good fun, brought back primary school memories. We ate fairy floss and played a chocolate toss game...didn't win though.
I love that the leaves have started changing, it's all so pretty at the moment. Can't wait for the last bits of green to disappear.
I was even dressed in Autumn colors (navy shirt, brown kmart jeans and brown boots) and My nails matched. I think I'll do proper Autumn themed nails later this season.
Sunday morning started with a trip to the local farmer's market. Nothing special, just a handful of stalls but the micro-brewery SJ likes was there and we got another six-pack for him. So that should last him another 3-4 months... I wore more Autumn colours, though red is an any season colour in my mind. I'm wearing a daggy Cat in the Hat t shirt that has red detail. I thought it worked.
Was feeling a bit depressed about my tan and my hair so I decided to work out what I was definitely wearing to the wedding next Saturday. This is the blue dress (branded G-Shape...bought from a boutique in the Queen Adelaide building in Sydney if anyone can help me track it down...) with my red heels.
I wasn't sure what I wanted with it, but my black blazer seemed to be the only jacket that worked...and I didn't like the black, gold or red clutches I had...and wow, how wrong and red do my legs look in that last shot! See, I don't think fake tans are for me.
This is the black dress, exactly the same as the blue dress. I loved it so much after buying it that when a friend of a friend went shopping there months later I got them to pick me another one up.
I tried the black dress with a few different jackets but I still wasn't happy. Decided a shopping trip might be in order.
Had to go for a run first, I'm loving my new 2xu jacket (which I bought a while ago but haven't worn much). Makes me feel like a real runner. I had a 10km loop mapped out...but ended up stopping after 6km.
This was where I stopped. That giant wheel?
Yes this one, why it just happens to be at Harbourtown. So I decided I might as well kill two birds and do my shopping now. Thankfully, SJ was out mountain biking and was happy enough to pick me up on the way home so I didn't have to walk with all my purchases.
First up to the plate, is my very first Glasshouse candle. At $40 it was the most expensive thing I bought all day and was a little present to myself. I was feeling rather crappy about my hair and all. Plus it smelt so good.
I don't normally shop at rubi shoes, but there was a '10 for $10' pop up store at Harboutown. So I got all this for $10. Stockings and sock things mostly.
The sock/stocking things aren't bad. Good to wear under pants and boots and the lacy tops are so cute. At $1 a pair I wouldn't care much anyway.
These lace gloves were a part of my hoard too. Not sure I will ever wear them (are they even still in fashion?) but I figure it didn't hurt to have a pair.
Turns out the Diva shop there was also having a 'Buy one get one free' on sale items. I own an awful lot of proper gold jewellry but no 'big' necklaces or fun stuff. Good excuse I thought. This one was $5...
This one was $5....so free?
Another $5 one.
And another 'free' $5 one. I intend to wear these to the wedding.
This one was $7 but I got it free with a $9 one I purchased...sadly, it is my favourite and I haven't taken a photo of it. No doubt I will wear it soon though...
I picked up this red clutch for $20 at some random bag store. It matches my shoes a lot better than it looks in the photo (thanks flash).
And this white 3/4 cropped jacket. Also intend to wear it at the wedding.
So my wedding outfit now looks like this, what do you think? SJ said I looked very NYC.
Would it be too much to paint my nails Big Apple Red? What about toenails?
