Aside from the heavy heat today, I had a pretty lovely little day. Luke & I stopped by our new flat and measured the space for our new furniture and all that boring kind of stuff. Afterwards he had to go to work, and I had to go to the shops to get a pair of earrings I haven't stopped thinking about all week. I had to get them. And because we're moving, its usually the best time to clean out your clothes cupboard and rid yourself of horrible past purchases. So I decided to buy a couple of new things to replace a whole bunch of old stuff I'll be throwing out. Its fashion maths. I purchased some dark blue jeans cropped shyly around the ankle which I'm super excited about, I basically haven't worn jeans for almost two years. I wear stockings with dresses or skirts every single day. And in keeping with the denim theme I bought a denim skirt (as well as a blue & white striped plain tee). I've been needing some wardrobe basics, so I'm glad I actually stuck to purchasing plans and got them this time. I always go to the shops with basics in mind and leave with a dress I'll wear three times and tire of.
It was such a sunny day I sat on the porch with yogurt & cereal, coffee & Frankie for the better part of the morning. I started to clear out my cupboard & saw a big pile of pictures I'd printed out during my studies that I wanted to put into a inspirational book. So after collecting them for 3 years I cut them all out ready to glue into a book. I spent most of my afternoon drooling over magical forest scenes, felt tea parties, band posters from the 70's, whimsical illustrations & wall paper while watching 'Daria' with green tea and seaweed crackers. Then I picked Luke up for his break & we got slurpees and watched more 'Daria'. So its been a pretty lovely day, and tomorrow will be just as lovely because my friend Lara is coming to visit for coffee.
I hope everybody is having a lovely little week!
