Phew. It's been a long and busy week, which got off to a rather bad (or should I say dusty) start last Sunday. I had a Very Big night last Saturday, which left me unable to get out of bed at all on Sunday. Back in the day, I was able to drink the night away with very few ill effects the following day. Unfortunately, those days have gone. Some time around my 42nd birthday, my drinking fitness took a plunge and is now very pathetic indeed.
Anyway. Let's just say that last Sunday and Monday I wasn't at my best!
The rest of the week passed in a rushed, busy and generally blah sort of a way.....
This weekend I've been far better behaved, and despite hosting a dinner here on Saturday night, I managed to refrain from binge-drinking and so have a pleasant, hangover-free Sunday.
Last night's outfit wasn't super exciting, but it was comfortable and featured my new shoes:
Sorry for the incredibly dorky expression on my face.
J Crew crystal compilation necklace, Skin & Threads* cashmere sweater, Nudie jeans and Mulberry pumps.
(* this sweater is fabulous - great quality, soft, non-pilling cashmere. SO much better than my J Crew cashmeres)
Meanwhile, Sydney has been doing what it does best: beautiful weather and ridiculously warm days, coupled with very cold nights and mornings.
The blossoms are out in our 'hood:
Magnolias on the trees:
It's still mid-winter, though, so I doubt these balmy days will last.
On Monday night we all went out to the Enmore Theatre (venue just up the road from our house) to see 'Of Monsters and Men'.
They're a band from Iceland who play happy, poppy tunes that my kids love. It was an all-ages gig, so the whole family went.
The kids loved it - we were in the front row of the balcony, so great views and no danger of getting stamped to death in the (very gentle) mosh pit!
Finally, in case you were missing my blurry loo shots, here's a couple to keep you going:
APC stripey sweater, Country Road dress worn as skirt, Trenery scarf and Lover leather jacket
J Crew blue cashmere boyfriend sweater, J Crew scarf (!) Nudie jeans, Acne boots and black Helmut Lang jacket over arm.
I hope you had a splendid weekend and didn't over-indulge in booze!
