dress: laura maidment // boots: target // coat: asos // jacket: kmart // belt: forever new // glasses: vintage

I wore this pink coat for the first time today and I absolutely love it! It brightened up my day, there is nothing worse than being stuck in black and grey all winter. I am trying my very best to keep my wardrobe bright and happy for the cooler months. I thought it might be fun to show the different layers to this outfit. I actually regret not wearing a black shirt under the dress but I guess I can do that another day. I actually think this dress is one of the most featured pieces of clothing on this blog, I don't think I will ever stop wearing it.

I am currently contemplating my quarter life crisis (yes I plan to live until I am one hundred). I know this sounds completely ridiculous but do you ever have those weeks where you cannot help but worry about the future? Lots of things are happening at the moment and I am slowly realising that things cant stay the way they are forever. Friends are moving away and I am facing big decisions about my career and other future plans. Turning 25 also means it will only be a month until Brendan and I move to the UK where I will be thousands of kilometers away from my family.Moving also means leaving our first house that we have lived in together for the past four years.  I am also worried that we wont get jobs and will have to turn around and come straight back. All these things are exciting but very scary at the same time, I know things will fall into place but at the moment I cant help but worry, lucky 25 is still 7 months away and things don't have to seem quite too "real" yet.

Ok I will stop rambling now and snuggle into bed and escape with my book!

  1. yikes, so 8 months until you're here then? how exciting, we better start thinking of plans :)

    I know how you feel about 25 - I felt the same, but I'll tell you the same thing my Dad told it - its only one day different - why stress out over a day. Then you'll realise that its not really any different/older/scarier than 24 was :)

    I think its ok to worry and plan, but not to stress and panic, everything will definitey work out for you x

  3. You make me want to pull out my pink coat, shame it's too warm here! I'm terrible with life changes so I'm not much help. I usually feel sick until they happen and then I'm usually happier once it's happened. <<< yes I'm a weirdo. xx

  4. That coat is the stuff dreams are made of! I need one in every shade of the rainbow! It is so hard to find a perfect coat - was it pricey? The whole outfit is just gorgeous. Probably my favourite of your outfits! (that's a big call).
    I hope you can channel your nervousness and worries about moving into fun planning time. It must be hard to make the final decision to make a big move like that. I know moving from New South Wales to Tasmania was a really big deal for me and took a lot of planning. I'm really excited for you and I can't wait to hear about your UK adventures when you get there.

  10. I love every single layer of this outfit!

    I know what you mean about worrying about the future. I'm 30 in January next year and my youngest sister has had a baby, my other younger sister is pregnant ... it seems like everyone is moving forward and I'm still just sitting here! It does my head in sometimes! But try not to worry, we all have different paths to take :)
