Here I am!

Ok ok, a hoodie, huh?  Yep that’s right!  Never thought you’d see the day, did ya?  Though, I don’t really understand what the big deal is…

I’m constantly being told how lady-like I am and the word ‘posh’ has been used on occasion… I’m still trying to work out what this means and whether it’s a compliment or not.  Anyway, I guess it really doesn’t matter.  But I’ll admit it, wearing a hoodie certainly is a change from my usual vintage, feminine style.  And look, I talked about this outfit a little in my last post so I’ll spare you the description.  Let’s just say, when I wear this, I feel so comfortable and stylish at the same time.  Who said hoodies can’t be styled well??

Oh, and a quick word about those shoes… my Grandma bought them for me for the grand price of $8!!!  Talk about a deal!  Anyway, sometimes it’s nice to add a bit of interest to an outfit like this.  That bit of interest for this outfit is in the form of those striped ballet flats.

Recently I went to a second-hand clothes sale.  I snatched up some good deals, but the best find came just 2 mins after I walked through the door.  There, sitting on the shoe table I saw a beautiful pair of tan, oxford heels!!  *sigh*  I’m wearing them now… lucky I’m used to being tall though, these pretties make me over 6 ft. 😉

Watched Twilight last night… 😐  I don’t understand…  And the Notebook the other day… (I know I’ll get a lot of hate for this) but I’m sorry, I really don’t understand the hype about Ryan Gosling?!  Ok, done.

Anyway, enjoy the extended version of my fav casual outfit!  Props to Rhesa for these lovely photos 😀

I realise I may have said a lot of the above stuff before in my last post… please accept my humble apologies 😉

Oh, and a bit of link love – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3wSbLa2uGg  This accapella song is AMAZING!!!  It makes me stop whatever else I’m doing and just listen.  I even paused writing this post to listen to it again.

Until next time…!

Heeey!

I’m here!  I’ve just been gone for a while…

For the last couple of months I’ve been super busy with a thing.  And I’ll do my best to explain that thing.  It’s called Convention.  Now that we’re introduced, let me explain what “Convention” is.  As you all may know, I’m homeschooled, and as part of the curriculum I use, every year I’m involved in a week long camp.  This camp is full of competition.  We spend a few months preparing about 20 events to enter.  This could be things like art and craft, to sports, acting, singing or sewing.  All the events are judged and ribbons and trophies awarded.  I focused a lot on singing and platform work – acting and public speaking.  I did really well actually and had a heap of fun!  The people are awesome and the teaching was so inspiring.  As a Christian curriculum, it aims to empower young people with the desire to serve God and others and to be enthusiastic about our Saviour – Jesus.  I had a blast!  Anyway, in the down time, I lay on the grass playing my guitar with a cute mini mouse bow attached to my head… um just see below.

And since I’ve been gone I’ve also…. bought a CAR!  My first, and I am in love ❤  Well, I think it’s nice anyway.  It’s a little Mazda Familia, 1994.  It’s in good condition and drives very nicely.  I will say no further… behold the beauty!

And because this post would be nothing at all without some sort of fashion comment.  I just want to mention that hoodie.  It’s a dream, honestly!  It’s comfortable but actually quite trendy I think – correct me if I’m wrong.  I’ve never really been one for hoodies, but… you know, I kinda do like this look.  It’s casual and nice paired with those cute, striped statement flats that I got for $8 the other day!

I feel like most bloggers go through this ‘transition’ with their fashion.  Recently I’ve read a couple of bloggers talking about their fashion evolving from vintage, girly pieces to more casual looks.  God-forbid that that ever happens to me!  …but I think there’s a time and a place for everything under the sun (to quote my favourite author) and that includes cute, casual wear.

Farewell readers!  Not for too long – I’ve scheduled a fashion photo shoot next week with my photographer friend.   And I’ve got a lot of new outfits to show you!
