Spent some time on Saturday trying to get more of a head-start on Christmas shopping! Had a list of things I needed to get, and found a few more nice little things just from browsing. Still have more to go, but quite pleased with the progress so far.

A little matchy-matchy with the belt, bag and shoes today! Was a comfortable outfit for the heat, and a nice touch of colour.

Went to the movies in the morning with my mother in law and sister in law, and spent the afternoon swimming in the pool. Had Church Online in the evening. Lovely way to spend a hot Sunday!

I haven't worn this skirt in almost 2 years, last wore it January 2012. Should probably let it go, because as pretty as it is, it doesn't get a lot of wear in my wardrobe. Might hold onto it for a little longer though and see if I can wear it more often, as I love the print and it's the only silk item I own.

Last worn: plain tee, French Connection print skirt, Ninewest wedges, Balenciaga envelope clutch.
