Oh hi there.
How goes it in the real world?
I’m in that limbo land that comes between packing up one life and unpacking to start another.
We’re almost there. And I LOVE our new home.
Mr SY spent yesterday building half of IKEA for my office/lady room and today I’ll fill those new furniture bits and pieces with my office/lady stuff.
I still can’t quite believe that the SY office is no longer part of our lounge. I’ll be all grown up with a door to close behind me at the end of the day.
Anyhoo, I’ll bring you a mini tour of the house once we’re all done with the unpacking but today I’ve got a quick Model and Me for you.
My father-in-law kindly bought us a big party esky for Christmas but he must have thought that wasn’t a girlie enough gift because I scored a Country Road gift card as well. Winning.
Second day of the Boxing Day sales, that gift card was burning a hole in my purse … plus I had to pick Miss SY up from her CR Christmas casual gig. I’d had my eye on this dress before Christmas but decided to be good on account of the huge money drain that comes with moving.
The dress was still there on this day so I took this as a sign. It wasn’t on sale but, with a gift card, buying it felt like it was on sale. You’re following my logic here, aren’t you?
Country Road dress $149
I’m wearing the size 16. The 14 was no longer available at the store and I suspect that had I tried the 14 it would have worked for me.
I’m happy with the 16 though – it’s more tunic than shift on me and that works in this heat.
I’m also wearing a white Seed slip underneath. The cut-outs were a little too see-through for me.
I really do love finding white frocks for summer.
I embrace their blank canvas fashion status and pop a little colour if I so desire.
Yesterday I was in a pink mood for the McGrath Foundation’s Pink Test day at the cricket, so pink it was.
On a beauty note, can I just say it was extremely therapeutic to get out of my packing clothes, do my hair and pop on some makeup – and pink lippy – after days of not doing so?
Where do you stand on the summer white dress front?
