One of those perfect days...

.. and it's not even half way through it.  It's just a tick over 2pm and I've done so much already.  My detox finished last night, just as I was getting used to it all.  Hunger pains didn't keep me awake.  I still have the glow.

I woke up on my own at about 8.30 this morning and wasted some time day dreaming and twittering. I thought I would make full use of my new glow and make an effort in the outfit department.  When I was sorting out my wardrobe pre winter, this MK2K vest was an item I was really looking forward to wearing, but it's been sitting idle since then so I thought it deserved to come out to play.

J Brand jeans (the one and only pair of jeans I own and wear)
MK2K faux fur vest
Scanlan & Theodore boatneck babywood knit
Scanlan & Theodore clover belt
YSL 'Lauren' suede booties

Once I got outside, the weather was perfect, almost like a crispy spring Melbourne day!  I've not really talked about my neighbourhood before, so here's a picture taken looking out of the driveway.

It's usually a lovely green street but it's looking a bit dead in the midst of winter.

Breakfast destination of choice?  Las Chicas.  Peppermint tea, poached organic eggs and spinach... and the newspaper.  Lovely way to spend an hour methinks.

I also went for a wander down Chapel St on the hunt for a birthday gift (which I found - lovely Swarovski crystal earrings from Mimco), but also something for myself (oops).  B is going to regret leaving me on my own!!

I think I'm finally beginning to enjoy living in Melbourne (it's taken me over 3 years).  Nice sunny days tend to do that!

Now I'm going to watch an episode or two of Gossip Girl season one and get started on my assignment!!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend x

  4. Chapel St is awesome! I love all the vintage stores and boutiques along it. I like how you wore your vest. I've had this black faux fur one for ages but only wore it once because I thought it looked too big on me, but now I know it'll look great with a cincher belt! Thanks! x

  5. You have such a fab figure! I love Chapel Street, I dance there two nights a week and love it. Glad the detox when well- I've just completed the Run Melbourne and feeling slightly unfit! xx

  6. Thank you lovelies!

    Carrie - stop it!! I don't want my friends to die :((( xx

  7. Ooh I just discovered your blog and I really like it. I think you and I are neighbours too, I live on Carlisle st... not far from Las Chicas. Love the area, it's the best.
