International Giveaway | Striped Skirt, Marc Jacobs Fran | Feather Print Maxi Dress

As usual; two OOTD posts, and a bonus giveaway!

Here's what I wore to work for casual Friday:
Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Kirsten sunnie' in yellow
NecklaceHouse of Harlow silver and grey leather sunburst necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet, gifted purple Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' leather bow bracelet
Top: Jeanswest brown marle singlet
Skirt: Thrifted black and white pleated striped maxi skirt from AWLQ jumble sale
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown from Reebonz

Close up of accessories and bag:
Was very windy trying to take photos - poor Cooper got hit in the face by my skirt a few times! Was rather funny though. Just a nice practical outfit for Friday at work, as some people still had to move desks I made sure to wear a long skirt so I could help move and unplug things from under desks as needed. And of course, I wore my MbMJ Fran bag again. It's such a great bag!

The sunnies were last worn here, top here, skirt here, shoes here and bag here.




Here's what I wore today for a dinner with DH's family:
Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
NecklaceLovisa blue leaf long necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
DressJayJays feather print maxi dress
Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAC bag in Deep Purple

Closeup of accessories and bag:
Definitely an aircon day today, very warm! Wore a maxi dress to keep cool during the day and look polished for a dinner with DH's family in the evening.

The sunnies were last worn here, dress here, shoes here and bag here.

  4. Nice threads for this post! That skirt is such a nice piece to have in your wardrobe! I have that house of harlow necklace! Makes me think that maybe one day I will have taste as good as yours! Hope you are well! I liked the page on facebook for your give away! I would just LOVE a blogging planner that said Satin & Salt on it! I already bought my day planner for the year, its one thing I have always kept up with each year is a planner.
