Life lately

It's 1:30pm and I'm sat in my dressing gown, cup of tea beside me typing this up. IT'S THE HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

1. Friday mcdonalds treat, the very best way to end the week.

2. Finishing up Papertowns by John Green. To be honest, it wasn't amazing and the plot was a little slow.

3. Taken in the middle of winter when the trees were bare.

4. This one was taken at the end/ beginning of spring, these two photos side by side are a beautiful contrast, nature amazes me sometimes.

5. The Great Gatsby. I completely understand (and agree!) with it's title as the 'great american novel'.

6. Only have time for breakfasts like these on the weekends during the term.

7. Saturday sleep-ins; a very good feeling indeed.

8. 'The world's best burgers' is a very big claim.

9. Grill'd does have the best veggie burger I've ever had though. Try Garden Goodness if there's one of these in your town.

10. Bunting is just so cheery and happy it puts a smile on my face instantly.

Florals and neutrals

I've probably mentioned this at least a thousand times, but whooooo it's spring in the southern hemisphere; and spring calls for some sort of a closet turnover. I've packed up all my knits save for one cardigan and scarves and beanies have all been demoted to the back shelves waiting their next turn when autumn rolls around again. I sure will miss snuggling down with in my doona with a cup of tea and book.

I recently decided that I'm going to slowly build up my wardrobe again, but this time with much more basics; and classic colours; navy blue, blush, beige, white and black. The other day I noticed I have countless dresses, tops and skirts in loud, crazy prints which I wear so rarely because they are so hard to co-ordinate, or only go with one other piece in my closet! I've also suddenly become infatuated with stripes and am currently looking for the perfect navy and white breton top. This is proving much harder than I expected, with the ones I've seen lately being the wrong, stripe-width, sleeve length and other harrowing problems. Any suggestions?
