Green Polkadot Playsuit

wpid-c360_2015-01-09-17-59-41-409.jpg This is an outfit I wore a few days ago (probably about 4 days ago actually :s) I don't really remember what it did to be pushed to the bottom of the outfit posting pile, but better late than never I guess?

Actually, there's just something about this outfit which keeps it off my blog. I've worn this playsuit about 5 times in the last 2 months, and this is the first time I've photographed it. Probably because I tend to wear it if I'm going out at night (and by going out, I mean moving from my lounge room to my boyfriends #hermitlyfe) It's super comfy, and super cute. No fuss + super cute after dark = my kind of lazy outfit!

Being a "lazy" outfit does have its drawbacks though. If you've read my blog for a while, you would have noticed that I rarely go without a belt. This playsuit is super duper hard to belt. I settled for a drop waist "punkish" style belting this particular day. I just can't get a waist belt to not look weird.

I also put my hair in pigtails, with two different coloured bows (because no one tells me how to dress!) Even though I'm hating having long hair, I love love love being able to put it in sickly sweet pigtails.

Today I traveled into Newcastle to write music with 3/5 members of my band Vanishing Shapes https://www.facebook.com/vanishapes . It feels good to be writing music again. The last time we were going into writing mode, we had a lineup shuffle, which meant that we had to leave writing in favour of rehearsing. We completed 2/3rds of one piece, and solidified a different theme of another piece. Twas fun yo!

Sometimes the only way to salvage a photo is to stick a vintage filter on it...

image I had a sewing day today. Because I got wrapped up in my sewing, I forgot to go out early afternoon to take my photos, thus having outfit shots with shitty lighting.

image

Luckily I managed to somewhat rectify the situation with filters!

image

Anyway, this is what I wore today. I made this play suit earlier this year, and don't wear it often enough!

image

It has the cutest tea set pattern on it

image

Can't wait to show you what I sewed it the coming days!

Let's have a real talk about the weather...

image

I am so sick of the weather at the moment. Basically I had this awesome outfit planned out because the weather was yucky and cold the night before. When I woke up in was super hot, so I decided to wear something less warm. This was a bad choice.

image

Guess what temperature it was at uni.

image

It was a very cold temperature. Despite my smiling face, I was not a happy chappy.

image

The moral of this story is, don't change your mind about pre planned outfits, because you might end up cold and miserable.

Hexagional mayhem

wpid-20140709_151322.jpg Today 3/4's of my band got together to catch up on general band stuffs and make art for our upcoming ep release. I got bassist Tim to take these photo's before we went for a skate as a break from being holed up in the kitchen and buried beneath art supplies.

I hit the sewing machine again last night and made this playsuit. I'd had the material sitting around for a couple of months. The only bad thing was it took longer than expected to sew (probably about 6 hours all up. I thought it would take about 4)

I also took some photos of the boys (although, mostly of Jake because he loves being silly in front of the camera)

These two photos were taken just before we left.

These four were taken on the route back. As you can see, Tim and Jake are quite majestic  (they're not too bad at music either :P).

Tea for two

Man, so I'm all about the playsuit at the moment. There are two factors to blame for this 1) my need for comfort (holidays + winter make me want to snuggle up in bed) 2) I got look book and then searched 'playsuit'. There were so many pretty ones!

The bag I used today is actually the cutest thing ever. One of my best friends (the magical elise)  gave it to me as a thank you for being a bridesmaid. I named him Louie.

My lovely boyfriend too these photos for me on our walk. It was windy and cold, so I rugged up with a super comfy jumper, which makes my shorts look super short D: (it's just really long).
