ANZAC Day: Khaki, Pink and Leopard Print

DH and I went to the local dawn service this morning for ANZAC Day. To commemorate ANZAC day there are memorial services, parades and events to remember the brave service men and women who have given their lives fighting for our country.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
- "For the Fallen" poem by Laurence Binyon
Lest we forget. 

When we were at the dawn service I covered up with a leather jacket and scarf to keep warm, but I didn't take any pictures of my outfit.

Here's what I wore for the rest of the day:
Tee: French Connection oversized khaki tee
Necklace: Indigo Rose Design feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus my Balenciaga Silver Giant Triple Tour Bracelet in Rose Bruyere from HGBags Online
Jeans: Kmart grey leopard print cropped skinny jeans (similar here at shopbop and here at Cotton On)
Shoes: Asos Cleo leather long leg boots in tan (last worn here)
Bag: Balenciaga Handle clutch in Rose Bruyere from CultStatus (similar here)

Closeup of accessories:

I've worn these jeans with khaki and pink before, just a different shade of pink. I don't know what it is about them that makes me pull out the pink! Will need to wear them a different way next time. Any ideas?

Feeling uninspired

Today was a funny day weather-wise! Showery and stormy but very hot and humid too. It was very cool yesterday and I expected it to be the same today, but it was overcast and rainy and warm at the same time.

Had absolutely no idea what to wear. I wanted to wear something warm because of the rain, but cool because of the humidity. After spending much too long staring at my clothes and needing to get to the post office before it closed I just picked random things. A very uninspired outfit. I like red and blue together, but this is maybe too much blue.

Here's what I wore today:

Necklace: gifted from a wonderful friend
Bracelets: the usual
Top: Cotton On
Shorts: Jeans west denim cuff shorts
Shoes: Cotton On thongs
Bag: Balenciaga Sang 2010 GSH flat clutch

(Scary ghost like pale skin courtesy of my camera being unsure what to do with the weird weather too, hehe!)

Closeup of accessories:

Got a pressie from my bestie today too!  This is what she gave me:

She is the best bestie ever, don't you think? Spent some time this evening putting the polish on - my first Chanel polish! I will try to take a picture of it in natural light tomorrow to show off the lovely pink colour.

Singlet and Shorts, Asos Fashion Finder

Relaxing Sunday again - DH and I went out for lunch. The weather called for shorts and a singlet again, but I thought I'd switch it up a bit so it was a little different from yesterday's outfit. Wore paper bag waist shorts and wedges instead of denim shorts and sandals.

Here's what I wore:

Singlet: Jeanswest animal print racer back singlet
Shorts: Asos paper bag waist shorts
Necklace: oldie from Diva I think
Bracelets: the usual plus a labradorite one made by a talented friend. It sparkles in the sun, so pretty.
Shoes: Nine west wedges
Clutch: Balenciaga Sang 2010 GSH flat clutch

Closeup of the accessories:

I think these are the perfect wedge - they are high but the platform makes them so comfortable.

Signed up for the Asos Fashion Finder this afternoon - I'm on there as AwayFromBlue. Is anyone else using it?

Finished up the day with church online in the evening at Hope you had a lovely weekend :)

Happy New Year, What I wore

Happy New Year! Hope everyone has had a great start to 2012!

Cooper made it through the fireworks without too much stress wearing his little thundershirt. Really good investment as it kept him calm and he only barked once or twice, so we were all very happy ringing in the new year.

After a late night we had a relaxing 1st of January, with dinner at a friends house in the evening. Delicious food and wonderful company, we stayed quite late! Here's what I wore:

Dress: Vero Moda (via asos)
Belt: came with dress
Necklace: Made by a friend
Bracelets: The usual, plus red crystal bracelet made by a friend, and Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in Rubis
Shoes: New Look
Clutch: Balenciaga Sang 2010 GSH flat clutch

Closeup of jewelry:

If you're interested I did a short video a while ago showing how much the flat clutch can hold and size comparisons with some other Balenciaga bags.
