Winter, all is forgiven in Sydney when you give us half a weekend of clear blue skies, like you did today.
The whole city looks and feels the better for it.
|Town Hall looking very European in the winter sun.|
Even the sky can't resist bursting into a cheeky grin.
And it made me briefly forgot it was winter, causing me to cautiously introduce some much needed colour into today's outfit.
|Jumper and ls top - Witchery, necklace - Limoncello by Red Phoenix Emporium, jeans - Maternal America skinny in vintage wash, flats - Lanvin, bag - Louis Vuitton.|
Is there anything better than finding that your new pair of skinnies fit like a glove from the first wear? So it was for me today with these Maternal America vintage wash jeans from Queen Bee. Things are going so well with my upsized wardrobe from Witchery that I overlooked that dodgy seam issue and went back today to take advantage of the sale and found another jumper and a black version of the long line khaki top I'm wearing in this photo. I ended up getting an extra 30% off the reduced price today. The weather gods were clearly in cahoots with the shopping gods today.
Embracing colour and lighter toned neutrals is hungry work.
So I needed to refuel before my hairdresser's appointment this afternoon.
It goes without saying that I went to Maccas.
|Lunch just made it to the healthy zone with some orange juice in addition to the above.|
For a serve of their London Fish & Fries. I might be a biased Maccas junkie but those fish fillets had a lovely batter to them. Different to the coating on a Fillet O'Fish. Maccas in the CBD are always such interesting places to visit. The upstairs seating area is often a meeting point for all sorts of people doing things I'd never really associated with fast food restaurants. Whilst I was having my lunch and availing myself of the free wifi, the ladies at the table opposite me were having an English lesson and some students to the right of me were immersed in something that looked like complicated mathematics equations.
Then it was a short stroll to the hairdresser where I was more grateful than usual for the chance to sit quietly for a few hours reading and closing my eyes whilst other, more capable people attended to my hair. In my twenties, I used to get extremely fidgety in the hairdresser's chair, itching for the enforced resting to be done so that I could get on with life. As I get older though, I'm more than happy to leave life and my phone at the front desk and be cut off from life's responsibilities for a few hours.
It's going to be a restful evening here at SSG Manor. There's a new bar of soap ready for the last, relaxing shower of the weekend.
And a magazine with snacks to enjoy in front of the television afterward. There's a great deal at magshop right now if you read The Australian Womens' Weekly. For $69.95 you get a year's subscription to the magazine as well as 12 issues of Woman's Day. The offer ends on June 26, 2012.

Though I'm not sure how far I'll get with the magazine tonight (no problem with the Tim Tams) because The Voice final begins at 7.30pm. Go Karise!!!!!!!
