Colourful Monday

A very warm and sunny Monday today, I was sad to have to go to work and not relax in at home with Cooper enjoying the lovely weather.

Wore something bright to cheer me up!

Dress: Jeanswest deep pink dress
Belt: Not sure, have had it too long
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual
Shoes: New look
Bag: Vintage Louis Vuitton speedy 25 (it's 18 years old this year!)

The dress I'm wearing today is exactly the same as this dress, just in block colour instead of animal print. I had to buy them both as I couldn't resist the ruffles!

Closeup of accessories:



I did a little video of my LV speedy if you're interested, showing what fits inside it. It actually holds quite a lot! Everything fits in nicely, the contents don't roll around like they do in some of my larger bags.



Also had to share this poem about the floods that are going on right now. Posted on the QueenslandSES facebook page.

To all in western QLD that are flooded yet again,We all seeing on the news that it is worse than 2010.It must be hard the thought of losing it all,And going home to find a mess as the rivers fall.This is proof that country people are quite a tough bunch,They are the most reliable when it comes to the crunch.To hear all but one made it out safe and well,The thought just losing everything and now a loved one must be hell.Soon it will all be over and as things dry out,some of you will see the good side - at least we're not in drought.As you begin to clean up your homes and dry your tears,everything just seems better over a few beers.I send my love and pray for all out in the west,Twice in a hundred years must put you to the test,I would love for people to repost and pass it around,To all or mates in western qld life on flooded ground.
A poem written by Matthew Ferguson-Tait for the people of south-west Queensland

Hope you had a good Monday.
