Necklace: betsey johnson// top: myer// skirt: target// shoes: novo// blazer: dotti// bag: mimco


I have been wanting a pleated maxi for the last six weeks and had been on a very unsuccessful hunt until this weekend. I found this gem in target and it ticked all the boxes. I wanted a slip that was as long as the skirt and a thick waist band as I feel it is more flattering with my curves. I wore it to work today and think I am definitely sold on maxi skirts.

 At Target I was behind an American lady who was on the phone saying how much she loved shopping in Australia. It was ironic as I am so excited to shop in America, I guess the grass always seems greener on the other side.

Today I found out one of my good friends is getting married, I am so happy for her but it has made me realise I am slowly entering the age of lots of weddings and babies. It is kind of scary to think about us all "growing up" but a really exciting new chapter as well.

I have a presentation to give at work tomorrow eeck, so I best go and finish preparing, hope you have had a wonderful day!

  1. I love your hair in that last photo and I loooove the skirt! I finally found a short pleated skirt at the weekend but the long ones are lovely too (though always too long for me, boo)

    I've been to 3 weddings in the past year and 2 of my friends have had babies too - its crazy. Even my little sister is getting married next year! It is exciting too though definitely :)

  8. You look fab! i've always found shopping in the US a bit easier for me, I don't really have the Australian style down - and it is different - I nearly cried in country road over the weekend.
