I hate to talk about the weather, it seems like the kind of thing you resort to when there is nothing else to talk about, better left for awkward elevator situations but I just have to say it was 18 degrees today! 18 degrees in the middle of a Canberra winter, its just unheard of. I went for a walk at lunchtime and had to strip off all my layers. It made me happy but before I could run away with thoughts of an early spring I found out its meant to snow on Sunday and we have tickets to the rugby, it was all too good to be true, please think of me on Sunday sitting out in the snow, freezing my tootsies off.
This outfit is the perfect example of me getting sucked into a trend and then barely wearing it. I really try to not buy into trends unless it really compliments my style as I find a lot of trends don't really suit me or don't match other things in my wardrobe. However I spent all Summer seeing bloggers in the Northern Hemishere rocking the khaki jackets with leather (or in my case pleather) sleeves so when I saw this in Target I couldn't resist. That was nearly three months ago and I have only worn it three times. Such a silly move, so while I am trying to not buy any clothes for awhile I am determined to wear out of this jacket! I am determined to be more careful with my purchases and this jacket was the perfect reminder of why. Have you bought any "trend" pieces that have barely been worn?
The television at our place seems to only have cricket on it these days, I guess that's what I get for living with two sports obsessed guys. In light of that I am going to go to bed early and catch up on some blogs and read a book and with any luck get up for the gym in the morning!
