Luckily family Christmas was just around the corner so it was easy to go home and change into something cool and comfy still as yet unworn!
Category Archives: Birkenstocks
I have come to the conclusion that this top – commonly referred to as my Karate Kid top – needs skinny pants. This outfit started the day with a big Tango skirt but ended up looking less Tango and more Russian folk dance!
I went for these little Bianca Spender for Carla Zampatti hand-me-down pants from my aunt but really struggled with a shoe solution! Plus I thought I might have to take my students for a big walk down the road to visit the local koala at school but sadly he had already gone deeper into the forest!
What shoes could I wear with this outfit? Or maybe I won’t do this combo again?!
My Thursday ritual of playing PK’s Trivia at Coorparoo Bowls Club was a bit more exciting tonight for two reasons:
1) my friends from Switzerland – land of my birth – are staying with us and therefore joined our team for the night
2) WE WON! Actually we came equal 1st in a 3-way tie and I got a 20-pointer on the dart board in the dart-off decider therefore very surprisingly winning for our team!
I was wearing my lucky red Switzerland souvenir T and my controversial Talbots petite navy cotton skirt that was a dressing room discussion point the day I ended deciding that I liked it and that was enough! It has since had lots of approval.
Once again my whole outfit revolved around my Birkenstocks and the need to wear a red shirt in honour of the peace we pray for for the Morcombe family who can finally bury their son 9 years after he disappeared.
My Cotton On man shirt and Sportsgirl shorts were the combo I needed to accompany my red Birks.
I knew a lot of walking was required to take my mum and my aunt shopping … But we did take a couple of breaks.
I couldn’t miss this photo opportunity!
The highlight was finding something I could buy in Fluoro! I saw a kid wearing these shoes the other day and I asked her mother if they came in big sizes … Well a little bit bigger than kids’ anyway! Here they are!
So pleased I got to get on a skate board today after studying about Rob Thomas who holds the world record for the longest journey by skate board
Broke a couple of records myself today:
1) stayed on a skate board and didn’t fall off
2) really wanted to re-wear an outfit for pretty much the first time since I started this challenge but obviously didn’t so we stand at 275 days of completely different outfits on one wardrobe PHEW! Not exactly world record stuff but a good personal goal still being achieved.
Thanks for all the support by the way
