Stripe Tank, Jeans, Balenciaga Sorbet Accessories | Asos Grey Tee, Skinnies, RM Mini MAC, Funkita Swimwear

Here's what I wore to work on Friday:

Sunnies: pink leopard print sunglasses from Paddy's Markets in Sydney
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Top: AT By Atmos&Here Orion stripe tank (new purchase)
Jeans: Sass and Bide "Straight up" jeans
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet

I worked from home on Thursday and actually forgot to take an OOTD before it got dark, although I did take a quick instagram shot of Cooper and I when I realised.

So this is what I wore to work for casual Friday. Nice simple striped tank and jeans. I would have liked to have added a scarf for some colour, but it was much too hot, so settled for pink accessories.

Last worn: leopard print sunglasses, Sass & Bide jeans, Balenciaga sandals, Balenciaga sorbet city. First time I've worn the tank as it's a new purchase.

Here's what I wore today:

Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
Necklace: gift from DH
TeeAsos new forever grey tee
JeansSass & Bide Jekyll and Hyde zippora jeans
Shoes: Novo 'Tahnee' black studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Kate Spade skinny mini bow bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

This is in fact the exact same outfit as I wore a few weeks ago, just with different accessories. Although I do repeat wear items a lot, like everyone with a finite wardrobe space does, I don't usually repeat combinations so closely together, haha. I just like this tee with the skinny jeans. It's comfortable and it works :)

The weather was even sunny enough today to take a dip in the pool with my new Funkita garden party print bikini! Funkita make really good swimwear, and just released a new 'Pixel Mix' collection at the start of the month. Lots of fun prints and bright colours for spring, all the way up to a size 22. I think this floral print is lovely and perfect for the warm weather, don't you think?

It looks great when worn too, so I thought I'd share that photo of the gorgeous Funkita model wearing it to truly do it justice. They have lots of pics on their facebook page. The fit is nice, and everything stays firmly in place so you don't have to do that awkward "modesty check" to make sure everything is still covered before you pop up from jumping into the pool like you do with some bikinis. Looking forward to wearing this a lot over the coming months and putting the durability and colour fast properties of the fabric to the test! Although I just missed out on it arriving before our long weekend holiday, the warm weather we are having means I'll have plenty more times to wear it before the pool gets too cold.

Last worn: blue sunglasses, Asos grey tee, Jekyll and Hyde skinny jeans, studded sandals, RM silver mini MAC.
