new season

Last weekend I was on a mission. A renewing mission.  I went to the op shop and bought some new-to-me things.  Including a sporty jacket for when I wear my Lycra all day*.

 And then I went to the real shops and bought some new-new things that I have been coveting.

And I did a huge wardrobe cull and I folded and sorted (see, so proud).

Since then I have been wearing my new to-me and new-new clothes with pride and feeling peace and love with the world.

I just don’t know how I survived a whole winter with tan boots without this corduroy skirt … It goes with so many things in my wardrobe.

And my new-new 3/4 wide leg pants are superb.  I admired them in Seed all last summer … faded denim.  They are now on speed rotation through the washing/drying/wearing cycle.

And I got some of those baggy crotch pants.  To go with my new-to-me silky black singlet top.  Fun.

Happy spring (cleaning)!


feeling optimistic

… that the worst of winter has passed, I am hoping that this purchase is my last winter woolly for 2016.

From The Salvos on Smith Street.  It’s a goodie!  

cold foot bff

Every week I go to soccer to watch the kids and stand around in wet grass with freezing feet.  I generally suffer from cold foot.  And soccer is the worst.

But not anymore!

I found a new best friend that I never even knew about AT ALL – until I went to the Florsheim factory outlet on Darebin Road and tried them on.  Bogs.  BFF and ever and ever.

My pair are rated to -15.  Some of them are rated to -40.  Toasty feet guaranteed.

Last Monday I just wore them all day.  And I didn’t even step one foot into the garden.  I wore them to a meeting at school.  To the shops.  To the supermarket.  To a cafe.

I figure it’s not as bad as wearing uggies everywhere??!  Right?  I am sure I am right.
