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

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…
