Mixed bag.

So I had a super dooper hectic week last week. And by that I mean I had a whole TWO HOURS of uni and then struggled to fill in the rest of my time (I spent much of it going to the gym and then eating back the amount of calories burnt at the gym by about tenfold). It's a hard life really. 

The weather in Sydney has been absolutely amazing lately - besides that one dodgey, rainy, freezing cold Thursday (that I spent at a warehouse sale despite the fact that I'm meant to be saving for Europe, woops) - so I've found myself digging out the floral sundresses and denim shorts again! Can't freaking wait til summer, I love the heat! I'm already salivating at the thought of beach days and bikini weather - although after this past week of carb-eating adventures/expeditions, my body is nowhere near bikini-ready!

Here is a quick recap of a couple of outfits this week. Looking at these photos together cements the fact that I really don't have a particular 'look' or 'style' that I stick to - just whatever I feel like on that particular day.

Monday: My actual birthday, spent in the sunshine with some of my closest friends, eating our way through Surry Hills, Paddington, and Bondi, with a stop at a local Italian gem for dinner. Glad I rethought the sky-high wedges and blazer I originally had on, because that was a lottttttttttttt of walking.  

 Dress & belt: a random shop in Liverpool that I forget the name of; Cardigan: Forcast; Bag, Shoes & Watch: Forever New; Rings: Lovisa & Pandora.

Thursday: The one, gloomy, cold & rainy day of the week - spent hitting up the Ladakh warehouse sale & then pigging out in Newtown with another close girlfriend. Opted for the lower heeled boots in the end which again was a good decision given the slippery/wet grounds. Ended the day by eating until I could no longer breathe with the family at a local Vietnamese favourite - a joint birthday dinner for the five August babies of the family.

 Top: Cotton On; Pants: Boundary&Co; Cape: Forever New; Bag: Sandler; Boots (High): Zu; Boots (Low): Dotti; Necklace: Lovisa. 

Saturday: A gloriously sunny start to the weekend that felt more like summer than winter, spent with another very close girlfriend wandering around Rozelle markets. Highlights included brunch at a cute little cafe, buying and wanting to buy so many cute little bits and pieces that I had no need or use for, and stops to multiple bakeries for cakes, coffees and cannolis on the way home. Oh, and the awesome company and conversation :) 

Tank (worn underneath) & Beanie: Cotton On; Top (mesh), Jacket & Shorts: Dotti; Chain: Equip; Bag: Betts; Shoes: I love Billy. 

Today: Enjoying the sunshine again, looking a little bit nanna. Or as my gay friend would call it, 'questionable-vintage'. I'm not even sure that I agree with my outfit choice - but given that I packed it the day before to change into after martial arts (for post-training lunch with the rest of the blackbelts) I had no choice in the matter today really.  

Skirt (worn as dress): Ladakh; Belt: see above (Monday); Cardigan: Cotton On; Shoes: Therapy; Hat & Sunnies: Sportsgirl; Bag: Forever New; Bangles: Markets; Rings: Lovis, Colette & Dangerfield; Necklace: Lovisa.  

Until next time lovelies, hope you all have an amazing week - don't work too hard, I know I won't! Haha xx
