What I Wore this Weekend : Fathers Day

On Sunday, the Antipodean nations celebrated some pretty cool dudes in our lives for Father’s Day.  We made sure the Welshman had a special day.  He started off with a little sleep in, a full English at one of our favourite cafes, then an exciting trip to the supermarket.  Oh no, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds.  The trip was to acquire a new Pokemon DVD that Boyo was very keen on.  I sacrificed my sanity to watch it with Boyo, freeing the Welshman for hours of uninterrupted newspaper reading.  He read all the weekend papers before the end of the weekend.  Amazing, I know!

In the afternoon, we headed off to the Botanic Gardens with our Boyo-planned picnic in tow.  The chocolate soup was amazing, and the Welshman even more amazing for figuring out how to keep melted chocolate melty enough to survive the car trip to the park, and the even longer trip finding a car park.  How good are freshly chocolate-dipped strawberries!

Now on to the important stuff – what I wore this weekend, of course!

Sydney’s weather on Sunday was beautiful and warm and sunshiny – if you were in the sunshine and out of the wind.  I teamed my favourite old Country Road brogue Chelsea boots (in desperate need of some polish love) with Country Road leather-trimmed ponte pants, with a Country Road navy and black striped tunic with a ruched front.  Yes, I was dangerously close to leggings as pants.  And I loved it.

Oh dear, I hadn’t realised I was flying the Country Road flag until I just typed that sentence!  Oh, the shame!

Luckily, I broke it up a little with this fabulous Zara patterned scarf that I bought on opening day.  Yes, I queued.  For fashion.  Yes, I did.  I also bought my fabulous pony hair leopard loafers on this day – and have never really found anything decent in Zara since.

The hat is from Mimco, and the fabulous earrings are from Witchery.  Wrinkles are model’s own.

The man of the hour wore his Country Road Father’s Day present, and looked very dapper.  He still makes my heart beat faster every day.

Boyo declared that as it was Father’s Day, fathers got special privileges.  They could not be told off for farting or burping.  Full immunity – didn’t even have to attempt to blame it on someone else, like the bunny or the fish or our non-existent dog.  He then declared that as he was a future father, these privileges applied to him too, and proceeded to take full advantage.  Boys.  Honestly.

Here he is, wearing a Country Road denim hat (we do shop elsewhere on occasion, honestly), with an Esprit shirt, Converse shorts, Daddy’s Raybans, Gap dinosaur socks and Seed denim kicks.

 

That’s what I wore this weekend.  What did you wear for Father’s Day?

    Hahahaha, your Country Road Flag. You do look adorable though. You’re little man is too cute, he looks so much like his mumma!ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 8 September 2012 - 6.06 am

      Thank you! Love that you think he looks like me. Most people think he looks like me until they see him next to his daddy. He definitely has my eye shape and skin tone. But the rest of his is pure Daddy. They have the same nose and face shape. They even sleep in the same position and walk with the same gait.

      He’d gone home for a nap when I was in hospital when Boyo was born, and was looking for the right room. A midwife, who’d not met him before, recognised him instantly as Boyo’s father. They look that much alike! xReplyCancel

    You need to come with me to Zara, I seem to have some pretty awesome luck each time I go in. And yes, it’s all about luck. Only ever not gotten anything once from there. I can’t see your whole outfit, but I do LOVE your shoes!!ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 4 September 2012 - 7.55 am

      I forgot to get the boys to take a full length photo of me! OK, next time we’re in the same city together, we are hitting Zara! xReplyCancel

    I miss Country Road almost as much as my mum 🙁ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 4 September 2012 - 7.56 am

      We must have sent so much Country Road overseas over the years that one year, we received gift vouchers from Country Road from our overseas relatives. This is before online shopping really took off and they had to ring up the store to organise them! xReplyCancel

    Gorgeous scarf! I love the colours. I sounds like a great day. RxReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 4 September 2012 - 7.57 am

      It just makes me happy, Rachel! Lots of fun hanging out in the sunshine together. Too many chocolate strawberries though xReplyCancel

  • Melissa Walker Horn - 3 September 2012 - 2.46 pm

    That scarf is WORTH queuing up for. Absolutely. This looks like the weather here this weekend. Warm in the sun. Cool in the shade. And just leave the one extra layer on. Beautiful. ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 4 September 2012 - 7.58 am

      Yup, that was pretty much it in terms of weather. It was quite odd to see girls in pretty summer frocks with people trudging along next to them in boots and jackets. They both probably felt smug about their decision at different times of their walk, depending on the angle of the sun. Me, I just felt smug that the chochlet soup worked out (thanks to the Welshman!)ReplyCancel

    I love the Zara scarf! That pic of you makes me think of someone who should be hanging in a painting – your features are so refined and classically beautiful. Love it.ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 3 September 2012 - 12.10 pm

      It is such a great scarf. The colours mean it goes with virtually everything. It’s huge enough to work as a wrap, and I’ve even used it as an emergency blanket to snuggle up a sick Boyo with. x

      Oh, and I don’t think I’ll be able to get my giant head in the door on the way home tonight – thank you so much! xReplyCancel

  • Sonia // She's Sonic - 3 September 2012 - 10.37 am

    Sounds like you all had a fantastic day! We finally had a weekend of sunshine and warmth in Adelaide, and we spent Father’s Day having an afternoon platter in the sun at Mr Sonic’s parents’ place. It was lovely! Speaking of lovely – how beautiful is that photo of you, Kim-Marie? Answer: VERY! xxReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 3 September 2012 - 12.08 pm

      Wasn’t it nice to have some sunshine for a change? Still chilly out of the direct sun here, but so lovely! I could just feel the sun warming my soul as well as my skin.

      Oh,and thank you! I’ve put on a little bit of weight recently, and it’s working for me, I think. My skin is a little plumper and I now appear to have a waist now that I have hips. I’m flying the Size 12 and Happy About It Flag! xReplyCancel

    I love how you guys roll! So cute that you described what the whole clan were wearing… I should do a post about Mr Cool – you would love it – he too flies the Country Road flag!

    And… Ms Kim-Marie – where the heck are the WRINKLES! They did not show up the pics!ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 3 September 2012 - 12.06 pm

      It’s a good flag to fly! Loving all the colour in this season. Such a beautiful window to walk past every day. 🙂 Yup, there’s a big crease right between my brows. I always scoffed at Botox but am getting closer to thinking it’s not so bad! 😉
