Take me to the water...

So its Australia Day today everyone gets the day off and the sun is out in full force!! i love this day everyone sits by the pool or heads to the beach to drink the day away to the JJJ countdown.. you can get away with eating way too much and burning food on the BBQ cause thats the aussie way...well thats what i will be doing today anyway lots of sun soaking and just hanging with the girls.. geez i need it ive been cooped up inside for two days with tonsilitis..theres nothing worse than not being able to eat..for me anyway!!

I quickly took some photos this morning because i was feeling better today for two days ive been eating icecream and watching La Vien Rose (Which i loved), The Young Victoria and The Office while quietly dying.. i honestly have such a manly approach to being sick i think im going to die from the smallest things.. i hate being sick!!! (who dosen't)

Unfortunately i was hoping to have the shop update done by today but was kept back by a few days so it will be up by Friday!! so keep an eye out for some really cute pieces..
I decided to go with a little leopard today, mainly because its so hot already and this shirt is the softest coolest fabric!! and i wanted to break in my new I love billy heels.. i love them, the perfect height for me and super comfortable they were worth the wait for!! The vintage pleated skirt i had altered to be a little shorter and im happy with the way it turned out..


So now im off to put the bikini on now and have one too many hot dogs..
(Wearing: Vintage Pleated skirt, I Love Billy heels, Sportsgirl headband, Leopard Shirt)

I love this outfit.the top is so cute and that skirt is darling.I also adore those oxford heels.I would love to get a pair and wear them with some little white socks like the ones you wore in your cherry bomb look.I think they would look cute together and would love to know what you think.

You look pretty and ethereal as always. Love your leopard-print blouse. I just got some leopard flats that I'm completely obsessing over of late.

Love the outfit, you look beautiful. I adore leopard print and think the shirt is simply gorgeous. Pops of red complete it for me. So feminine...

My boyfriend says The Office always cheers him up no matter what...well, up until about season four. I have the DVDs and we watch them constantly.

Love the leopard print, especially with the pop of red! They always seem to go together better than anything.
