Print It!










Wearing: printed skirt (thrifted $6!!!), singlet (supre), hot air balloon & airplane charm necklace (Glebe Markets) and various accessories.

[Photos by my sister's bf Alvaro Malmierca, funny that! My sister Kassy takes most of my outfit pics, but this time Alvaro stepped up to the plate! Thanks Alvaro!]


I'm loving the length of this skirt - it's not long enough to be a maxi but not too short that it reveals your knees in that awkward 3/4 skirt manner. With it's abstract bold print, I opted for a more simple approach and sported a basic white singlet and minimal jewellery than usual. I felt a whole new sense of freedom being able to bare my arms and underpits with sun being out all day - there wasn't even a cool breeze and the absence of goosebumps on my considerably pastey legs proved as a good sign the weather would indeed be looking up from now on. Though, yesterday's weather was just only a tease! Today it was all grey, gloomy and raining. You think Mother Nature has bi-polar or something?!! :O

Yesterday we celebrated my Dad's 54th Birthday, and per usual we had a classic BBQ lunch. Mum and Dad even cooked barramundi! :D YUM YUM food for my tum! Good thing I picked out this skirt to wear - being highwaisted, pleated and the bold print hiding my tummy, I was able to eat as much as I want (not like anything would stop me anyway hehe)

Looking forward to more days like these - backyard BBQs, picnics and baring more skin! I'm in desperate need for some Vitamin D. But knowing me, I'll go 4 shades darker in less than 20 minutes during a serious sunbathing session :S

I also had the chance to finally make my crystal cluster ring and whilst at it, found my old mini treasure chest full off old gemstones that I collected when I was child. You could say I went "ring crazy", super-gluing any suitable stone to my ring bases I've neglected for while. Will share the results with you soon!

  2. That print looks fantastic on you. The necklace is super cute too. Can't wait to see your cluster ring!

    Also, those Max Brenner pizzas looked delish. Keen to try one next time! I paced myself today though, and only had a mocha frappe thingy and strawbs w/chocolate (coz fruit makes it all better, right?). There is so much potential to go into chocolate overload there, it's kind of frightening!
