Daily Outfit: Birthday Bash!

Here it is! What you've all (patiently) been waiting for!

I did have to teach on my birthday but I thought seeing as it was a special occasion I could get away with a party dress. I also signed a lease on our new place! Most exciting day.

Got changed into something blue and slinky for Indian that evening.

Hot pink satin boots were a hit.

Daily Outfit: Colour correction

After the previous day's subdued hues, I decided to really overdo things with a bright red jacket and leopard print dress. Oh, and fluorescent purple stockings. And red boots. Hmm.

Hiding my eyes in shame.

Daily Outfit: Interview time

Had parent-teacher interviews a week or so back. Decided to go a bit more sedate than my usual... wise idea?

My week in pictures

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Daily Outfit: Emerald city

Somewhat sedate for this schoolday look but I like it! Emerald green goes with my pool tiles so well...

Daily Outfit: Casual Friday

Although I should be wearing a dress (Frock on a Friday!) I'm going Friday casual for some workshops at school. Gorilla vest and costume skirt were very popular.

Daily Outfit: Cleaning the Pool

Not really cleaning out the muck festering at the bottom of our pool; rather a day at school trying to clean out brains and fill them with good physics stuff. Yep.

Daily Outfit: World weary

I've said it before and I'll say it again: You can tell I'm tired when I'm wearing pants. Minimal effort (but at least I'm still wearing colour!)

Daily Outfit: Inspection

This outfit was a winner! I wore it a few weeks back to school and then to inspect the property we're (now!) living in. Yippeeee!

It's Spring!

Joyful times! It is finally spring (I don't cope with winter blues so well now).


So how can I tell that change has finally come (hopefully for good)?

Crazy weather - four seasons in one day!
The change in weather seems to have provoked everyone's allergies too!
Voracious appetite for reading has returned
Changes in produce at the markets - have I mentioned that I'm now a ten minute walk from the Central Markets? Happiness!
Wearing lots of colour
Bright mornings despite my hideously early alarm
Night blossoms and their delicious fragrance
Feeling excited about future projects

Tell me friends, what about spring is making you excited?

Daily Outfit: Dying days of winter

Thought I'd better give this woolen leopard print number another crack before winter says its final adieu.

The garden says it's spring already!

Daily Outfit: Weekend warrior

I am... not so good at the weekend casual thing.
I am... wearing sequins.

Daily Outfit: (jump!)suit

In retrospect, wearing a onesie to school wasn't such a smart idea.

PS. Hi! I'm back! Still no interwebz at home (Friday!) but I'm on holidays soon and looking forward to getting back into spring blogging.

Daily Outfit: Red Patterns

A bit of an eyesore? We all know my favourite colour is red. This get-up is a few weeks old now.. I'm working on it!

Daily Outfit: Bubblegum Stripes

I love the contrast between the hot pink and the aqua pool tiles!

(Mining my own resources...)

Ode to Google Reader

Oh Google Reader, how I miss you.

After enduring a week of doom at school (with no sign of things calming down!) and moving house over the weekend, I have had approximately zero time to fritter away on the internet. And I miss it!

Broadband is set to be hooked up at the end of next week but in the mean-time I'll have to make do with brief browsing during my lunch breaks.

Fancy sending me some lovely links so that when I do have time I'll be inspired?

Daily Outfit: Crane Brain

Look at me, all serious like while a crane scrapes out my brain! Fun times.

Putting the "Hi" in "Hiatus"

Just a quick hello and comment ça va?

I had a mad busy week at school and have spent the weekend moving house (!) amongst piles of marking so blogging hasn't been my number one priority over the past few days. Soz.

I'll see what I can do to remedy it! Salut.

Daily Outfit: Hint of spring

Feel that? A bit of warmth? The sweet aroma of jasmine in the air? More sunlight in the mornings? People out bike riding and jogging?

Spring has sprung. Hurrah!

Daily Outfit: Swimming in Stripes

Casual for a weekend French teaching conference. Gorilla!

PS. Using your drained pool for outfit shots? Super fun!

Daily Outfit: Friday dress ups

Not a frock for Friday but equally fun! No-one said a thing at work. I'm going to look back on these photos and laugh, I'm sure.

Saturday, September 3, 2011


I didn't get too far into showing you past outfit shots before my computer died. I may have lost all digital photos from 2004 onwards but let's hope the data is recoverable!

To jog your memory
. Also, my Canberra Capsule.

Sequins for study. Really.



Dressed as Naboo, that's who.

Work Christmas party (back when I was in hospitality!)

I hope you're enjoying the trip down memory lane... much more to come!

Wear Colo(u)r Two: Spring fling!

I've saved lots of goodies away for you since my last post!

All dresses found on the wonderful Wear Colo(u)r. Click images for linkbacks.

Don't these dresses (aside from the last one) make you think of spring?! Sunshine and optimism!

Daily Outfit: Got the Blues

Rather colourful for a physics teacher!

Daily Outfit: Rehearsal Rendez-vous

Just felt like dressing up for band practice. Very well received!

I wore this dress when I went to a party as Coco Chanel. Très chic, non?

Daily Outfit: En retard

I admitted to my sister this evening that there is a bit of jetlag in my outfit posts at the moment... something like a fortnight. Eek!

Seeing as today was a glorious sunny day, I hardly want to keep showing pictures of woolly wintery wear, correct? I'll do my best over the next few days to get up to speed.

A bit Frenchy, a bit fun!
