Little Ray of Sunshine

Trousers: Asos

I had the nicest day yesterday! I’ve just reached my 100,000 KM service (“only a hundred thousand?” asks The Sophisticate) so spent the morning at the optometrist and the dentist, but the afternoon and evening were free to spend with some of my favourite girls.

Two of my bridesmaids met me in town and we wandered around, had some lunch, had a manicure then came home and debriefed on the wedding plans, such as they are. We’ve decided on our dresses (no hints!) so that just leaves shoes, hair and accessories. All the frou-frou, such as it were. A third bridesmaid joined us in the evening for a sleep-over and after giving her a sneak-peek at everything I’ve got sorted for myself we went out and had laksa for dinner.

Our last bridesmaid’s a smidge younger than the others, so The Sophisticate and I thought we’d take the opportunity to educate her on the joys of 80’s fantasy movies with a screening of Willow which went down like a lead balloon. LOL, I guess some things just don’t get better with age! Still, I adore her, and I’m so happy to have her as part of my big day even if she doesn’t recognise true cinematic genius (“get your hair out of my face or I’ll chop it off”)

And wasn’t the weather DIVINE?

It’s nice to get sunshine and warm weather, even though as I write this, the rain is starting to fall outside again.

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect yellow shoes. There’s a pretty good contender for the role at Wittner at the moment; a little too tight for my wide foot, but definitely the best I’ve seen yet.

Meanwhile I’m contenting myself with a plethora of yellow jewellery.

  1. Oh 80’s fantasy movies! One of my favourite subjects! Are you a fan of Legend? It’s another one of those movies that a lot of people either love or hate it…I admittedly fall into the “love” category.

  2. Love, love, love the yellow accents and those Wittner shoes are to die for. If only the heels weren’t quite so high! I’ve been looking for the perfect yellow heels for a while too. I keep returning to this Nine West pair available at Endless http://www.endless.com/Nine-West-Womens-Yew-Leather/dp/B005A76CTG/ref=ord_crt_shr?ie=UTF8&fromPage=cart&refURL=%2FshoppingCart&asins=B005A76CTG, whilst Endless now ship to Australia ($10 or free if you spend over $100 -it is a dangerous site!) sadly they don’t ship Nine West here. I’ve been thinking of using a site that buys the item and ships it to you from the US to bypass this…I used the site once before and the service was excellent…

  3. Oh Willow! One of my fave movies ever- actually named my first-borne ellaura, but most people dont get the reference haha!
    I love the yellow in this look!

  6. Your outfit is perfect timing for me as a friend is going to pass on her yellow Elk necklace to me, and I was wondering how to style it. Navy and white is perfect with it, as well as makeup to bring out the roses in one’s cheeks! (or maybe that’s black and white – whatever, it looks wonderful!)
