There is nothing that sends me into tailspin faster than someone telling me to dress casually for a dinner in summer. I think the go-to for most people when the dress code is “casual” is jeans, but when it’s as balmy as it was a little earlier this year, that’s the last thing you feel like putting on.
I saw this little yellow top, sitting in Zara like a pretty daffodil, and I instantly wanted it. The problem was, it’s cropped length, and very full, which presents a bit of a problem for me.
I’ve always appreciated frills, ruffles and layers, so when I caught wind of this skirt, I felt like I needed to put it on and start a conga line around the shop.
You all know how passionate I am about colours, and when you see something like the outfit I’m wearing in today’s post, is it any wonder why? How could you possibly wear an outfit that looks like it was woven from sunshine and marigolds, and not be happy?
There a few things that I will just keep going back to: floral prints, delicate jewellery, bows, pink, and gingham.
Cards on the table… I usually have no time for alternate or imitation foods. It’s the vegan stuff that gets me. I mean, if you want a piece of cake, eat a piece of cake. I struggle with the recipes that use a whole heaps of nuts and matcha this, coconut that and cacao nips galore. Often I feel like they are so calorie dense that they end up being worse for you than if you’d just satisfied your cravings with a small piece of cake in the first place.
My parents used to say I had ants in my pants. I suppose I still do- constantly on the move, always a little bit restless, and stuffing my life full to the brim. It suits the life I’ve carved out for myself, but have the tendency to over-do it, and when I crash, I’m usually completely down for the count.
