A Week in Outfits

Meg recently did a post sharing all the outfits she’d worn that week. I thought it sounded like fun, so here I am!! Thanks for the idea Meg!

Good old moving day. I literally also wore this outfit on Friday, but I couldn’t be bothered wearing anything special for moving day. I wanted to wear something I didn’t mind getting a little dirty and was super comfortable for moving things around. I wore my grey jumper, black overalls and little ankle boots.

The day after moving, we still had heaps to unpack and spent most of the day in and out. Doing errands like laundry, groceries, and going to buy supplies like mops and shower curtains. So I opted for comfiness. My new pink off the shoulder sweater (which conveniently shows off my mandala tattoo), my light blue jeans and comfy shoes.

We still had the day off, but I felt a little dressier than jeans. So I threw on my favourite grey jumper, blue mini and tights, cause it’s still cold. I also wore my brown boots, but they’re not pictured. Another comfy outfit as this time we had errands to do in town. So I wanted to be comfy, but not a total slob you know?

Tuesday

We had more of a relaxing day planned, filled with just hanging out at cafes and chilling at home, so I had fun dressing up. I got my new Mirrou top and paired it with my blue summer skirt from the July thrift list. I did wear the skirt for a little, but it’s not that warm yet, so I had to change to jeans. But I did really like wearing the skirt till my legs started getting cold.

Our first day back to work. Lucky it’s a short week! I wore a typical work outfit which is a jumper, jeans and sneakers. All things loose and comfy so I can spend all day looking after babies and toddlers. Which I did. I always forget how exhausting my job actually is until I’ve had a few days off. Takes a while to get back into maintaining that level of energy all day.

Thursday

Another work day. Today I chose my big comfy black cardigan, on top of my Mirrou short and another hidden light cardigan. Of course I wore jeans, and my boots. My work outfits are often dark coloured, for good reason. Things get on them.

Friday

The end of another work week. As you guys have probably identified, I like to wear jeans, boots, and a comfy top. Today I went with my zip-up hoodie. I have many go-to outfits for work, and these are a few of them. I never dress up for work, I feel like I would if I worked in an office, but whatever comes to work, I have to be prepared that something will get on it.

So that’s a typical week’s worth of outfits for me. Like I said, it’s nothing too fancy. I focus on comfort and what I can move easily in. If I’m not heading into work, I like to dress up a little more, unless I just feel like staying home all day.

What do you guys wear on a typical day?

Dress Collection

Dress Collection

The ever amazing Cheila recently did her own Shoe Collection post, and then she said she was considering doing a post about her favourite dresses, and asked me to join her. I, of course, immediately said yes. So here we are 😀

So I only have six seven dresses at the moment. I used to have more, but I have decluttered recently. I don’t wear dresses often, I normally wear pants or skirts. But during summer, I love to wear dresses. Course it’s winter at the moment, so I don’t wear any of these which is a bummer. A few of them got a lot of use back in Fiji. Anyway, enough rambling. Here’s my dress collection!

The Graduation Dress

The longest dress I’ve had so far. I bought this in mid 2013, when my graduation for completing my Bachelor of Music was coming up. At this point I had no dresses, and wanted something nice for said graduation. I bought this cute blue dress for $25 from Glassons. I loved the little touches of designs with the lace around the neck and shoulders. It’s also blue which is one of my most favourite colours. The skirt is really light and floaty, which is good, but also bad as one breeze blows it right up (Wellington gets real windy). I still love the dress though.
