Work has been a little hectic this week - so Tuesday it was time to pull out a comfortable outfit! This tee is another one of my purchases from my DFO shopping trip on the weekend. As usual, I bought lots in Jeanswest, haha. Tried to take a photo to show off the colourblocking, as the back of this tee is pink. You can see a better pic on instagram.

Linking up with Three-fer Thursday, Spotlight linkup weekly today.

I've shared a couple of times on the blog about the presentation group we have had in the office the past two months. Today was the final session where we had to present to the entire department and show them what we had learned. I was extremely nervous! Wore heels for a bit of a confidence boost, and a pretty dress. Was so pleased by everyone who turned up to support us, and all of the encouraging things people said afterwards. I know I have a lot further to go, but I've really improved my public speaking. Had a big slice of cake afterwards as a reward! :)

Last worn: Warehouse blazer, glitter beltWittner heels, Balenciaga work bag. First time I've worn the dress as it is a new purchase.

Thought I'd share with you that the Melbourne designed Kiargo and Funkita Form swimwear labels are having an end of season sale! Although it's been too cold to swim in the pool this month and I've just been using it as a photo backdrop, I'm hoping in September I'll be able to enjoy taking a dip now and then. No harm in stocking up on swimwear now while it's on sale ;) I really like the Mansfield bikini for classic pool-side glamour.

I think that's so cool how it's two-toned. I've never seen anything like that! I would've been buying in LOTS too! LOL

    1. Thanks Kim! Easier to look confident than feel confident for such a scary presentation, haha!

  6. I used to be so scared of public speaking!! I completely understand your nervousness but see you did great (at least I can imagine how confident you were when presenting lol). I think what you wear can definitely influence once self confidence! A bit of a heel can't hurt anyone right? You look very elegant and pretty!!

    1. Thank you! Heels are my secret weapon when I present - that little extra burst of confidence! :)
