There’s A Lilac Tree Named After You.

So, I’ve been doing something that I typically don’t do….. comfort dressing. I’m almost ashamed to say it. Not that I’ve ever been the type of girl that wears heels all day and teeters around but I have always been a fan of the jeans so tight they’re practically compression stockings. I like it. I find something comforting about skin tight denim. They are essentially my version of a hugging machine. So now and then I look at pants and have mixed emotions. They always look sooo comfortable but in fabric that thin I might as well not be wearing pants. This is my strange logic. In any case, I saw these pants at the Supre clearance shop (a store I like a little bit too much given my usual taste) for $5.50 and I thought worst case scenario I’ll wear them around the house. Turns out I kinda like them. I feel like a different person in this more puffy silhouette though. WEIRD!

There it is… the hair flicking shot.

Your butt feels everything when it’s only covered in a thin layer of cotton. None of that tough denim protection!

It’s rare for me to admit but I’m actually really liking my hair colour at the moment. Pity it will wash out before I next leave the house. Also, I’m so glad I got these glasses. I almost didn’t because of the weird colour but I actually kinda love them now. Win!

The World Is Full Of Every Kind Of Colour.

Pink and red are pretty much my all time favourite colour combo. I remember when I was young being told that pink and red don’t go together. Kinda like the spots and stripes rule. Well I’ve never liked rules so it’s pretty much a given I’ll do my best to break them. I don’t bust this Wonder Womanesque belt out often enough either. I actually completely forget about it only to be a little bit excited every time I find it in my drawers. Probably a sign that my drawers are too full but who cares really. Purple is a colour I rarely wear. This jumper though hast to be THE softest and fluffiest thing I own. Love a bit of cashmere. Only problem is it leaves purple balls on everything I touch. I think I can cope with that for the sake of cuddliness though! Both jumper and skirt are from Myer. Myer actually has some cute and cheap stuff hidden amongst the their overflowing disorganised racks. That store always surprises me. It always resembles a cheapo bargain store. Weird.

I normally put a song I just kinda like but generally has no relation to anything I’ve written… oh, wait, this is the same. Check it out though! Ok Go always make the most creative and wacky videos. This one is just plain cute.

The mandatory playing with my hair pose.

Oh yeah. Smug as the shit.

Only Because I’m Greener Than Green.

Oooh I’m loving this cold. Of course I complain about being cold the entire time but I love boots and jeans and layers as previously (about every post I think) mentioned. This morning I had an “oh my god how could I forget that?” moment when I spotted my ridiculously over sequinned jacket in the closet. It is squished full of them. SO many silver fleckles! Anyway, it seemed like a way to make the green hair and ripped jeans more fancy. Oh, and the necklace. Come to think of it I’m not sure what I was trying to achieve….

I am a BIG fan of a sequin in the daytime. Or anytime for that matter!

My face is doing something weird here but look at the necklace! Love it!

I know these jeans are too tight and too small but the shirt is cut like a tux jacket. Not just a black shirt to me.

Pre-crinkled, but I could have done that myself.

Action shot! Real actual work!

Hey Man If We Just Found Irony Do You Know How Ironic That Would Be?

Today I did something I’d been meaning to do for quite a while. Don’t get too excited…. I went to Target. Oh my, I do really, really like target. I can’t explain why, I’m just always impressed. We always go over to Newton so on our way home went for a little stroll at Morialta. The weather was kinda perfect today, cold but sunny. I think my favourite. Unfortunately after eating an entire packet of gummy bears in about five minutes, moving was not on the top of my to do list. Oh well. Best intentions and all that.

I always feel like I have to explain this t-shirt. Yes, I know Van Halen are awful but some stuff is kinda alright which makes it ok to wear a shirt in hipster ironic style fashion. No matter your thoughts on their tunes, they always made amazing tees. All of them. Every one colourful and crazy and an awful lot of attention and detail put into their artwork. Yes yes. I know. Still unforgivable.

Everytime I put it on it makes me think of the Bondi Hipsters. I love these guys. They nail it totally. And hey, we’re all a little bit guilty of it… no?

Why the face? Well, it was stuffed full of gummy bears. I can’t stop when I start!

My bag was going to be a temporary measure to fit my laptop in after my other one was pinched. It turns out the $30 sale bag has become much more loved and a keeper than I had anticipated.

Fluffy Hair! It’s so trashed. I wonder why?…..

Hey You! Why so serious?

Ok, that’s more like it.

I’m pretty sure I could fill this blog exclusively with pictures of me scratching my head. Weird.
