Florals and Knits


I hope everyone is having an amazing Thursday! Ollie and I have the day off for a friend's wedding so we had a nice sleep in. It's always such a treat to have a sleep in during the week -- I almost feel guilty! It's the perfect day for a wedding, with clear blue skies and it's supposed to stay this way, so we're very lucky. I'll show some photos of what I wear tomorrow :)

These photos are from last night, before going out for a couple of drinks with Tarryl. It was such a nice surprise that she was in town! It's been far too long since we've had one of our girl nights and it's even better when they're on a patio on a gorgeous summer evening.

I decided to wear this old skirt that has been sitting in my closet for about 10 years. It was a midi length before with an uneven hem, but I felt like the length was a little awkward so I cut it into a mini skirt and really like the result! It's always nice when you can make an easy alteration to an old item and start to wear it again.

I hope you have an amazing day! xoxo











I was wearing:

Knit from Aritzia (similar in Grey)
Kookai Skirt -- Shortened (similar here)
Forever 21 Belt and Earrings
Browns Wedges (similar in patent leather)
H&M Bag
Tarryl M, Givenchy and DIY Bracelets

Thanks so much for visiting!
