This is the outfit I wore to work today, it is probably one of my favourite all time looks because it features some of my most loved pieces from over the years. I love the memories that are attached to clothes; the skirt and jacket remind me of a happy time in my life. My mother in law bought me the jacket when we were on holidays a number of years ago in Queensland. I loved discovering the little boutique Kitten D'Amour with so many girly treasures featuring bows, pearls and polka dots. I heard there's a store opening in Sydney soon which would be amazing. The skirt here seems to be a perfect match. When I say it is self made, my mum helped me and probably did majority of the work. I definitely wish I was better at sewing. Just need to find the time. I love this little bag I bought around this time last year. Tweed is one of my favourites too and I often wish there was more of it around. It's like a sweet little parisien suit case especially since it's called the 'From Paris with Love Bag.' That reminds me. I've been really interested in looking up various locations in other countries on google maps at the moment. I've never left Australia so I like to see the rest of the world from my computer. It's a very interesting use of time. Other cities look so different from Australia; they seem to have so much character. Very beautiful. My friend from work says that so many of the European cities would provide would provide the perfect backdrop for outfits. One day...if I can get past my fear of planes that dream can happen.
