You never realise how much stuff you have until you move house

For the last year and a bit Ive been back with my mum and dad in the country, I occupied an average size bedroom, plus some clothing in another wardrobe in the house and my sewing things. 

I did another “throw out” of clothes about a week before I moved, knowing i was going to be downsizing wardrobes. Not to mention I’d recommend doing this anyway when you’re moving. I still have so many clothes and now a few extra to recake and resell. 

I decided not to get rid of this denim pinofore/ overall dress from sportsgirl. My mum bought it for me last Christmas and i think I’ve worn in once. Considering it was mum’s birthday and I was heading home I decided to bust it out

(New place is so bright! Great for photos! Not so great when you want a sleep in…)

Only staying here temporarily but hoping to make use of the nearby beach while i can so cute little dresses like this will be perfect. Just need to wait for the weather to catch up and realise its Summer here! 

Dress: Sportsgirl

Shoes: Adidas Originals Court Vantage

Top: secondhand

Climbing Hanging Rock and burger festival in Ballarat

Ok, I have been slack for posting but i feel like life has been hectic. I’ve had heaps going on. So here I am, back with plenty to post about.
In my farewells before heading to Japan in October, I had some great times with my gold bitty emy, and also my sister, brother in law and my nephew. Emy and I had a fun time in my home town before heading to nearby Hanging Rock to climb some rocks!

I’ve been going to Hanging rock since I was a tiny child. I couldn’t tell you how many picnics I’ve had and rocks I’ve climbed! If you’re heading out to the Macedon Rangers I would highly reccomend it. I could spend a whole day there to be honest! 

Make sure you take you’re walkin’ shoes!

Heres a cute little GoPro Quik clip I put together as practise for Japan. I was pretty stoaked with how it turned out and honestly I didn’t have to change much from the pre edit. I just used the GoPro Quik app, which is nice and easy to use, plus they have some music on there to choose from or you can upload your own. 

I have a few more to upload from my trip but I’ll keep that for my next post! 

I also had a rad time with my sister (and fam) at the Ballarat Bi Annual Burger Festival! It was my sisters first proper time out of the house since giving birth to Atticus in June so she was happy to feel “normal” again, especially with a burger and cider in hand!

 

Philly cheese steak with Jalapenos, ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ so amazing! So is Lake Wendouree in Ballarat! The botanical gardens are nearby and kms of path around this gigantic lake! Such a great backdrop to an awesome day. Ballarat really seems quite progressive, always heaps of festivals and events going on for all kinds of niches.

Felt pretty relaxed and confident with my outfit choice. Much inspiration from  Le Happy and some other fellow fashion bloggers/instagramers. Crop top, tartan pants amd sneakers. Topped off with a vintage leather backpack

Pants: DangerfieldPrincess highways

Shoes: Adidas Original Court Vantage 

Crop: General Pants 

Everything else: vintage/preloved

Outfit Diaries – Stary Eyed over new shoesย 

Purchased my first pair ofย Unifย boots ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

20170810_101330

I had been eyeing off theseย Ryder bootsย for a few years now, umming and ahhing over the price, shipping and sizing. (Im a half size which is a pain.)

20170809_132900
So i finally gave in, I bought the size up as suggested and i have never been happier with a purchase!They are super comfy, epic and yet easy to wear. I decided to test them out at work Friday with this simple outfit and wore them again Saturday night, driving to and around the city, attending two birthdays and heading out to a club dancing.

I would have loved to show the outfit from Saturday night but I am hopless and left my phone at my friends in st kilda before we left.

I found this outfit super easy for work, the black top I got as staff uniform when i worked in one of my retail jobs and havent worn for ages but looks perfect with thisย Subtitledย white mesh, star long sleeve top fromย General Pants.

Got so many compliments for such a basic outfit.

What to Pack – Travel Style Inspiration

70 days until I’ll be boarding my first flight to Japan!

I now have Wednesday off each week, so i have more time for sewing (and mental recuperation.)  Today I did a mash of things, cleaned my bedroom and bedding, sorted out my sewing supplies, (played The Sims for about 4 hours,) and scoured pinterest for some outfit ideas for my budget trip to Japan this October. 

I want my clothes to be easily rotatable and repeatable. Because I still need to spend some good money on shoes and a bag, I’m hoping to be able to take mostly the clothes I already own along with some well picked fillers, required items and “pop” pieces!

Obviously they also need to be able to sit in a bag for periods of time and my god, I avoid ironing even at home.

I also have a lot of thinking to do about shoes for day wear, dressing up and hiking.

This will be a timely process…
