Fun fact about me: I’m a ballet teacher. I mostly work with elite girls between 14 and 18, who have left school to study ballet full-time in the hopes of having a career in an international company. I also teach younger children after school and on the weekend… so it adds up to quite a few hours in the studio.
I should really be padding out my winter wardrobe at this time of year. In a few weeks I’ll be in Sydney (which is significantly colder than where I live), and I’ll be needing scarves, boots and knitwear.
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?
Try as I may (and let’s be honest, I don’t try very hard at all), I find it impossible to stop reverting back to a certain style of clothing. It amazes me that I own anything that isn’t pink, floaty, floral or has a bow.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ll know I’m a bit fan of white and blue. As we near the end of our warm-weather season, and khakis and blacks start filling shelves, I’m taking as many opportunities as I can to squeeze in time in bright, happy and fresh colours.
One of the best feelings when it comes to fashion is discovering a new combination of old favourites that you didn’t realise could go together. I often find that by about the third time I wear an outfit, I’ve got the accessories down-pat and I’m wearing my favourite version.
