Time for Wardrobe Wednesday with Kelly at Kiwi Womens Style.  What I Wore to spend the day with my gorgeous blokefolk celebrating Father’s Day.

True to the shared ethos of both Kelly and Kimba, Wardrobe Wednesday is likely to feature several thrifted and opshopped bargain buys.  Come and join in the fun!


Father’s Day Weekend

Our Father’s Day weekend was filled with family, glorious weather and lots of yummy food – just like it should be!

We picnicked in the Royal Botanical Gardens, bordering the gorgeous Sydney Harbour on Saturday, soaking up the sunshine, eel spotting and wrestling, followed by a Messina trip.  For dinner, the Welshman roasted lamb on the barbecue, which we served with the Welshman’s legendary smash and the fabulous salad Boyo and I whipped up.  Darling Mills mesclun from the Orange Grove Organic Markets, with strawberries, fresh asparagus, frozen peas and a balsamic EVOO dressing.  Yum!

On Sunday, the Welshman was treated to a sleep in and an amazeballs bacon and egg breakfast muffin breakfast in bed.  Fantabulous!  The boys headed off for a spot of putt putt golf in the morning, before we had a stroll in the sunshine to the Three Weeds pub.  A fabulous lunch, complete with lunchtime Old Speckled Hen pints for the Welshman, was followed by a wander to the Rozelle Markets and a relaxing afternoon at home.  The Welshman redeemed one of his Father’s Day gifts – a carwash voucher!


What I Wore



I just adore this Lil D dress, which I picked up for an absolute song at the Fashionista Depot Clearance Sale.  I just adore dresses – they’re an outfit all in one piece.  This one has a shirred waistband and shoulder detail, and a really pretty pussy bow tie in the front of the bodice.

Black Leona Edmiston Pins leggings kept me decent, as the skirt is a little short for me.  I accessorised with my Rayban multifocal sunnies (because I’m old now), House of Harlow starburst earrings, mustard Sambag flats and my beloved Sterling & Hyde Robin Tan – a birthday gift from some of my Gorgeous Girls for my Big Four Oh My Gods.

Look, sparkly nails!  I even gave myself a Hello Darling manicure – Hopelessly Devoted with Pretty, Innit? glitter feature.

I treated myself to a gorgeous vintage silk kimono from the Rozelle Markets – only $29.  I deserved it – you should have tasted that breakfast muffin!
