Day 305 – Skeletons from my Closet … Happy Halloween!

Sadly I was required to endure a zero fancy dress Halloween as I was taking my students out on an excursion today to visit businesses in the city. But it did mean we ended the day at the Farmers’ Markets at the top of Queen Street: http://www.janpowersfarmersmarkets.com.au/

Could there be a better place to get in touch with some pumpkin fun today in my hand-me-down pants from my mum?

They had been in my cupboard for about 3 years before I resurrected them this morning … I don’t know how long they were in mum’s before that … Talk about rising from the dead!

Man pants are back and everyone commented at work that I never wear clothes like this … Did they miss the man pants era?

Day 301 – Take Me Home Country Road

Walking through the city today I saw a beautiful girl riding a really gorgeous bicycle and I thought I hope she is an ad. Then I noticed the basket on the front was full of Country Road summer brochures. And there I was in a Country Road dress.
I bought this dress when I first came back to Australia to work in 2000 and needed some Brisbane workwear after being in London where things are chillier and how can I say … blacker? … at work.
I realise this isn’t super colourful but I usually make up for it in turtle necks / Ts / accessories with lots of colour. In weekend mode today I had this cheery, colourful brochure at my side to brighten things up. Soon we’ll be accessorising with smiles – my favourite accessory – ’cause I’m off to a Baby Shower with lots of lovely ladies. We don’t know if it’s a girl or a boy so neutral wardrobe required! It does match my present bag:

Although someone recommended a bottle shop voucher, I ended up with soothing baby bubble bath by Jurlique for a relaxed baby and mama.
