BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


Friday was ANZAC day. As usual, DH and I went to the local dawn service, so I was a little tired in photos! I dressed warmly with a singlet under this top and a colourful hoodie over it. It allowed me to take off more layers as the day heated up. Ended up just wearing the singlet for most of the day.

Going to the dawn service each year is our family tradition, it's interesting to think that this time next year we will be there with baby. It's good to take a moment to respect and remember the bravery and courage of those who served and are still serving in our defence forces.


Last worn: baseball tee, striped maxi skirt, white converse, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Casual Saturday outfit. We had to take Cooper to the vet today for his vaccinations, poor little guy. He was not happy to be in the examination room, but he got lots of attention afterwards, and of course some treats too.

I've had this ninja baby tee for a while. My sister gave it to me as a Christmas gift, and made sure it was a size larger than normal so I could wear it the entire pregnancy. Like I do with most items in my wardrobe, I'd been saving it for the "perfect occasion". Came across it last night and realised that I only have 6 weeks left to go, I should really be wearing and enjoying it more often instead of saving it. Got lots of comments and giggles on it today, it's so fun! :) Was glad I wore it. Might have to wear it to one of our antenatal classes too, that would be a good occasion.


My ebay auctions end soon - check out the results of my clothes and handbag clear-out, and pick up a bargain :)


Last worn: maternity denim shorts, Havaianas, Balenciaga day bag (see above). First time I've worn the tee.


Linking up with Sunday Style today.

    1. The dawn service is a memorial service at dawn for the ANZAC soldiers. We have lots of services and parades over the day for people to pay their respects at different times, but it has become a tradition for us to attend the dawn service.

    And I agree to not save something for a special occasion. Enjoy it!
