But can you ever just be whelmed?





shoes: cotton on // dress: // cardigan: target // belt: forever new // bag: kmart // earrings: vintage // rings: gift

Tonight I have been looking up information on moving to the UK next year. I have to say it is pretty overwhelming reading all about visas and jobs and so on and so forth. I think my biggest fear is not getting a job and having to come back again with my tail between my legs. I guess that is the whole point of an adventure, not knowing what is going to happen. Luckily we still have 7 months to go so don't need to do anything just yet. 

This was an outfit I put together for work today. I bought these shoes ages ago but have not worn them. I kind of think they make my feet look really long. That sounds so ridiculous, maybe I am just not use to them yet.

This weekend is crazy for me and I have been battling a cold all week but I am not going to let that stop me from making the most of it. I am going to a baby shower for my new little niece or nephew, attending my first murder mystery party and taking my mum out for breakfast for Mothers day. What are your plans for the weekend? x


  1. Sounds like you are going to have a great weekend! :) Love your dress! I had a pair of shoes like those and I felt like my feet were really long in them too! maybe It's because I'm so used to seeing my feet in ballet flats! :)

    Love, Rachel

  2. I don't think they make your feet long at all! Cute dress! I just watched 10 things I hate about you last weekend. x

  3. Lovely outfit! I'm after a pair of shoes like that for winter, last year I had a Spendless pair and they fell apart haha.

    Your weekend sounds jampacked, hope it is great! :)

  4. Ah visa's are a total nightmare aren't they?! Nothing ever seems to make sense and it feels an endless trail of paperwork. Good luck with it all!

  5. I love the shoes, I wear ones like that all the time.

    Yeay, I'm so excited still that you're thinking of coming to the U, I would be scared of it too but I think you'll be ok, its definitely an adventure either way x

  6. Murder mystery parties are so much fun!

    I think it's fabulous that you're going to move to the UK for a while and experience life there. You'll totally get a job.

  7. I think you can in Europe...

    10 things, my favourite movie.

  8. I love that dress! Cotton On has such pretty things, one of my favourite stores.

    I think no matter what happens in the UK, it will be a great adventure for you! And I've heard they really love Australian people there so I'm sure you will find a job :)

  9. The shoes look great so no need to worry about that! Good luck with getting everything sorted although I know jobs are hard to come by in the UK right now- I can't imagine why anyone would want to live there! I left two years ago and came to Malta for a better life- loving it!

    Although like you say- whatever happens its an adventure. Even if it doesnt work out- so what? At least you tried. It's much better than just not trying and thinking one day... I wonder if it could have worked. At least if you go- it might work out! And if it doesnt, you'll have stories to tell! xx

  10. that dress is super sweet! I have ones similar in black (but another brand) and feel the same - but I think it's an optical illusion? ;)

    how exciting about the UK!! Wow! I know how hard it is moving (after having moved from Melbourne - Darwin) - but something will turn up job wise!

  11. Love your dress, so pretty. Moving is definitely scary (I did it at the start of the year) but i think that it is good to have a new experience :) and the UK is awesome!

  12. Love this outfit too! Ugh, I love all your outfits :)

    Those shoes are super cute, and don't make your feet look long at all!

    Do you know where in UK you'll be living?
