Shoes: Chie Mihara
Sweater Guard: Jackie D’s Retro Boutique
I’ve had my Mum visiting with me over the last week – taking time out of her busy schedule Touring The World as a Grey Nomad to sneak a visit in.
Melbourne put on some amazingly pretty weather while she was here, and we had a wonderfully busy weekend full of markets, and meals, and manicures, and on Sunday (10:10:10!) we went to St Kilda to watch my brother jam with a few muso friends.
It was such a pretty, sunny day that I wore my confetti (smarties, gumballs, etc etc) skirt, with a blouse, cardigan, and sweater guard. It’s not exactly a Melbourne-approved outfit, and I felt quite awash with colour.
In the breezy summer winds I had to watch myself, but there’s nothing to give you the giggles like unintentionally flashing your knickers on a sunny Melbourne weekend in St Kilda.
Flashing via a whizzy skirt like that one is grand. x
You had a Marilyn moment? You know better than to stand on a grate in that skirt right? *Snicker* Truly, it’s such a beautiful skirt!
I love that skirt! I’m so impressed that you made it, you did an amazing job!
I LOVE that last photo!
You look absolutely adorable! So if these aren’t Melbourne colors, what are Melbourne colors? I’m curious. Love that last shot where your skirt is making a statement–fun!
I love your website. You always look so gorgeous, I think you’d look good in a sack lol! I’m inspired to try my hand at making a skirt – wish me luck!!!
That skirt is great – love the colours – especially that you found a cardi to match your fabulous shoes so perfectly (jealous of those Chie Miharas – must acquire my own pair soon).
As for the unintentional flashing – Melbourne is a rather windy city isn’t it. A slip underneath could help a lot as they usually fit slimmer and don’t flare up as much when it’s gusty. 😀
that skirt is super cute. i want one!!!
this out is so..festive! spring-like! an absolute joy of colours!
You might have seen some of the Melbourne marathon runners on 10/10 – I am sure they would have appreciated the sight of your knickers as a distractor from their PAIN.
I saw a guy running the half marathon wearing a tutu. Dubious fashion statement, but nevertheless I yelled out “go, tutu guy”. Think he lost a bet or something.
I love that skirt! I adore wearing lots of colour once in a while. Its why I love all of the jewel coloured tights that are around at the moment. Good way to brighten up an outfit.
I finally managed to get a brown pair of boots – althought the husband says I look like a pirate in them!! So I shall be attempting to work those this week at some point….
Love love love the skirt!
I think a real melbourne person is comfortable enough with being a melbournite to wear big bright bold beautiful color!
Hello! Gorgeous as always! Despite not being a Melbourne native, I seem to have picked up the monochrome habit fairly swiftly, but I really do have a soft spot for black and greys.
I saw you at the Finders Keepers Markets, and had a bout of stalker anguish. After looking at your pictures for the last couple of months, and being truly inspired, I think it was fair enough that I recognised you, but I ran through a whole debate with myself about saying hello. I think it may have crossed the creepy line, hehe. Anyway, I would’ve just said something along the lines of ‘You’re an amazing fashion goddess and I’d like to have all your clothes and shoes please. Thanks for blogging.’ But in a much more awkward mubly sort of way. If I ever see you around again, maybe I’ll work up the nerve to wave. (The whole thing was made much more awkward by the fact that I was wearing a similar outfit that was far, far inferior to yours. Drats!)
Oh! I wish you’d come up and said Hi! I love putting faces to names and meeting readers first-hand! Wasn’t the market amazing! I hope they do more of them! So where are you from originally? I’m an ex-Canberra girl myself 🙂
Oh Lili! So cute!!
