All work and no play makes Monica a dull girl :)

Well hello there! Wanna come out and play?? ;) Im channeling my inner child for todays work outfit. :) Mind you I didnt wear the foxy knee highs to work, Im afraid that would have been to much to handle for my poor colleagues. :) After all Im not working in a nursery or at school. ;)

I love this newfound orange skirt which I bought in a local shop the other day, the colour, the fabric and the fit is just perfec! Im trying to stay off the novel print/pattern wagon and purchase more solids, its easier to mix and match with those.

I giggled myself silly taking these pics, goofing around like well  basically any child. ;) I can recommend to act like a child sometimes, it totally lifts your spirit. :)

What Im wearing:

Top from H&M
Cardigan from Louche (AW2014)
Skirt from WTG (recent)
Knee highs from Next (sale)
Shoes from Bianco (old)

White Stuff - Grey grouse skirt and a little bit of sewing

Howdy! Im feeling groused out to day but in a good way! :) My new skirt from WS featuring pretty big birdies has finally arrived. I love the grouse but they look more like pigeons to me. ;) I snatched it up in the sales, its the best feeling buying stuff on sale. If I had to I would have purchased it at full price though , wouldnt let this fly away. ;)

Such a lovely, sunny day when the photos were taken. I know Im breaking all kinds of photography rules taking pics in direct sunlight, casting shadows and whatnot, but I dont care. :) I guess you are not here for my excellent skills as a photographer getting by with my poor compactcamera. ;) Im running a low budget blog, hahaha. ;)

My porch from a different view. :) Alas no leaves on the trees and bushes yet but Spring is coming. :)

What Im wearing:

Top from Noa Noa (old)
Cardigan from H&M (old)
Skirt from White Stuff (recent - sales)
Shoes from Din Sko (ancient)

Another dress down for my little girl!Seems like joining a sewing class is finally starting to  pay off, Now I just need to figure out how to make this dress on my own at home. *clueless* :P hehehee

Quirky Friday: Holy cow!

Cath Kidston - Home farm cotton dress. Yeeehaa, now you have the chance to channel your inner Old Mcdonald. ;) What can I say, this farmyard dress is so perfect for a farmgirl like me, you know I actually live on a farm. :)  I dont think I can live without this seriously!! This dress takes the term "animal print" to another level.  This will be my first purchase from Cath Kidston, Im not sure about the sizing so any input on that is most welcome! :)

Image from ColourQ
Sometimes I need a little kick up my butt when it comes to colour mixing. :) I find these crafting colour challenges - ColourQ really inspiring. In fact I have decided to challenge myself in recreating this colour palette by the use of items from my wardrobe. :)

And... here is the result. :) Melonmambo cardi and tights, pumpkin orange top, red skirt and neutral/offwhite boots. I had so much fun rummaging through my closet so I will certainly do this again. Thinking of making it a weekly serie here on the blog. :) Perhaps you will be inspired to try it as well. ;) Nothing would please me more, heheheheeee.

These colours are also perfect for Valentines coming up this week. :) I wont be celebrating valentines myself (my hubby and I cant be bothered) but I will be wearing red and pink at work this week instead. ;) I wore this outfit at work today.

What Im wearing:

Cardi from H&M (old)
Top from H&M (old)
Skirt from Boden (old)
Boots from Din Sko (ancient)
