Some days I feel inspired.  Some days I have more energy to fiddle with things than others … today is one of those days, or more specifically, this evening is one as I ditched the ‘good mom’ image and took the family to McDonald’s for dinner.  I was just TOOO tired to cook and way too hot as well.

Something old : my jacket
Something new : my skirt

I picked this skirt up on sale at Contempo about two weeks ago for R120.00.  I liked the print and it’s ‘heavy’ enough for winter as well.  I have mostly tried to buy pants and skirts that I can wear through all the seasons and this lived up to that.  The skirt is a little bit tight, but the next size up was huge and I am so bad about getting clothes sized that I’d rather go with the snug fit.
It’s so hot here again, it reached into the early 30’s (Celcius).  I’m thankful as always that I work in an office, even if we can’t adjust the aircon to suit ourselves, it’s cooler than being out there.  I always feel for the kids.
On Friday I want to go and take photos of Jarod doing scholar patrol.  I think it would make a great scrapbook page for his album.  I think it’s his last patrol for the year. 
Well, before I melt completely, I’m heading away to let the fan blow my hair around.  Hope your day was awesome.
Keep it Simple, Keep it Sassy.

    Very beautiful outfit. I love the ruffled tee (is it?) and the finishing touch of the brooch.

    Pretty outfit. I like the skirt.

    It always startles me to realize your seasons are reversed. You’re getting warmer and we’re heading into the cold Winter.

    What a lovely outfit. You certainly don’t look hot and bothered – enjoy that aircon!
