Wardrobe Wednesday

I completely forgot about Wardrobe Wednesday again this week. Luckily I remembered this morning!
What I didn't forget was that it is is the first day of Spring, and I thought I should dress accordingly.
I'm wearing the ever-cheerful yellow sneakers I got at The Warehouse, black tights from good 'ole Farmers, a VERY bright wrap around dress from Trademe seller 'Vintage Kitty' and a stripy top from The Sallies. I decided this outfit didn't need any accessorising, it is kinda full-on as is!

I'm also too bloomin' tired and sore to think about accessories. Today is day 4 of the 10 week weight-loss challenge that I'm doing with my Mum and Dad.
After having such a 'blue' Winter, I really feel like I need to do something to get me feeling good about myself again and, unfortunately, losing weight will play a big part in that. I'd love to say that I'm a-okay with my flab (the fat acceptance movement is one of those things I really want to believe in but just can't get there..) but ever since the 'O' word found me again  (no, not the good one.. obesity!) I've been feeling pretty stink.
I'm okay with being the larger sister, the larger one in my circle of friends etc, but I have a closet choc-a-block full of vintage amazing-ness and only a very small slither of it fits me right now. Hence, weightloss is back on my agenda.
Although, after three walk/runs and a weights/boxing session with my Dad last night I'm feeling like this is going to be the longest 10 weeks of my life. Let's see if I can keep it up.


  1. My goodness I LOVE that dress!! You look wonderful!

    That was my main motivation to lose my baby weight was far more to do with not being able to wear my treasures than anything else :) Good on you for your exercising, you rock! (I am LAZY).

  2. I really love that outfit. It looks really fun and happy and bright. xo

  3. Loving the dress. I really admire you're gutsiness when it comes to style... something a lot of people couldn't pull off, but you're so cute!

    Also good to hear that the spirits might be lifting. My friend Sally swears by boxing, she said it's the best thing she's ever done for herself. She's still doing it while she's pregnant! (with a bag and the guidence of a personal trainer before anyone things she's asking for trouble!) She's crazy loco. x

  4. Amazing outfit! I have begun my own weightloss challenge - made a pact with Zan that if I can lose 10 kilos (no immediate time limit) I will get a $200 clothing allowance - $20 per kilo. Good incentive... If I double it (doubtful), it will be double the allowance. Now I just have to get scales so I can actually chart progress...

    Good luck with yours!

  5. you look AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i so hear you on the weightloss thing :(

  6. Love it that you don't mind putting all the colours and patterns together. I'm not that bold! Looks great

  7. Love those yellow shoes and your beautiful bright dress! I totally can relate on the weightloss thing as well. *sigh* eating is so much more fun than...well, not eating. lol But I think you look amazing!

  8. Your style is too cool - I love it (especially your shoes). Well done on your challenge - even though I know it can be hard at times!!!
