I’m so sick of the rainy weather, wet school shoes and wind tangled hair but I’m also not exactly looking forward to spring because I get severe hay-fever so it’s a real catch 22 situation. Strangely the weather was just perfect today; sunny, warm, and calm. And that’s how I felt, well until my mum locked her phone, keys, the shopping and her bag in the car! But luckily, with my lock picking, chair kicking and youtubing skills ,the problem was resolved within an hour. My reward was Japanese ice-cream and a trip to Westfield. To be honest I was actually not looking forward to it, parking at Westfield is a nightmare and mum’s too embarrassed to use the valet parking because of the current state of our car.
I’m not one of those people who say “Shopping is my life, I love shopping”, I actually much prefer a trip to the fabric store and a few hours in front of my sewing machine, because it’s much more rewarding. But, I do love a nice trip once in a while. I fell in love with the Bally Lysia bag:
And this Ralph Lauren cricket jacket/blazer.
Like I said on twitter this morning “going for a ‘tough on top, feminine on the bottom tactic to dressing today”.
Unfortunatly my clutch couldn’t fit all of my stuff, the shoes were not broken into and even with the lovely weather it was still too cold to not wear a jacket. So I ended up swapping the shoes for a nice pair of broken in Mary-Janes, the clutch for my mum’s Prada and adding a cashmere cardigan.
