OOTD: Work fits

I must start out be apologizing for the slightly potato quality photos in today’s post. Life has been super crazy lately (mostly consumed with the purchase and moving into a house), so outfit photos just haven’t been getting much priority. However, I had a few more in the backlog so I wanted to share.


Now, this photo is really awful and I’m so sorry, but I’m just excited to be wearing one of my favourite jackets again!  This zipper broke two years ago and I only just got around to finally replacing it (I don’t know why I procrastinated so badly, it actually was a pretty straightforward and easy repair!).  But I’m really stoked to be able to wear this parka again after having to shelve it for the better part of a year.


And yes, this photo is even worse, but let’s just ignore my face and concentrate instead on the cute sweater.  A great ebay find this year!


As we move into spring here in Australia, maybe I can finally loosen up on the dark colours and skinny jeans + boots + scarves that seem to be my uniform these days.  😛

I keep reading that skinny jeans are out, but for work I just find that they are so easy and functional (especially as I’ve been in the lab most days lately).  Do you find that a change in season can bring you out of a style rut?


OOTD: Casual + Fun

So I really have been decently good at taking outfit photos recently.  Here are a few more.


I recently wore this out for casual drinks with friends.  I know it’s not like, super cool or anything but sooooo comfy.



This is a recent work look.



Another recent work look which I think turned out really well.  And yes, I am still wearing these 6+ year old, totally not cool anymore anthropologie pants.  Because, why not?  I love them.



And what do you wear out when you’re in your 30s?  Apparently this.  Yes, I am wearing a shirt with cut-outs, a mini-skirt and heels.  #dontcare #DINK

Admittedly, I was dying to finally get to wear this skirt.  I bought it on ASOS around this time last year but the fit wasn’t quite right.  I finally got around to taking in the waist this weekend and am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I felt very 70s.

I feel like maybe I am supposed to outgrow my love of quirky, weird fashion and especially bold prints…  but I am starting to suspect I never will.

What I wore: Outfit drop

Hi Readers!  I just wanted to quickly post some of the looks I’ve been rocking (or not?!  sorry about the somewhat potato quality photos too!) lately.  Almost all of these are looks I’ve been wearing to work (apart from the crazy huge yellow jacket – which I bought last year at the end of the season for $40 and only wore for the first time this past weekend!).  Yes, that is the identical cardigan in both yellow and orange, and I regret nothing.

I’ve been working a lot in our labs lately, so most of my looks have to be reasonably “lab friendly” e.g. closed toe shoes.  Also, it just seems so much more sensible to wear jeans in a lab than a skirt.

And even though I keep reading that skinny jeans are on their way out, I shall continue to pretend they are cool.  I love them and even bought 2 new pairs this year.  Everyone here in Australia seems to still be wearing them, so we must just not have gotten the memo yet that they are on their way out down under.

Yes, I have been getting a lot of wear out of the flatform sneakers.  Even though D says they are ugly, I feel like they elevate any outfit they’re paired with.  I actually wouldn’t mind getting another pair…

And I finally wore my boyfriend blazer to work!  Hoping to continue to get more wear out of it as the year goes on (but again, my lab work right now is so messy, there is no point in wearing my nice/fave pieces to work!).
