Last night I went from work to dinner with my sister and her husband to a cafe called Suburban in West End. 
Dress. Basque Myer
Given this is now my favourite work to dinner dress, I thought I'd remix it a little for this occasion.
Shirt, Katies
Dinner was really lovely, sitting al fresco and enjoying the beginnings of a Queensland transition from Summer to Autumn.
Necklace, Diva $5
How awesome is this necklace?  For $5 I'm a happy girl!

10 years ago yesterday I went out with some friends.  My eyes met the blue eyes of a tall young man across the dance floor.  We danced, he bought me a drink, he asked for my number and then he disappeared into the night.
Dress, Basque Myer
Shirt, Target
Necklace, Diva

Yesterday that tall young man and I celebrated the 10 years we've spent being a part of each others lives.
Mr Man was waiting at home with a Ferrer Rocher bouquet, and whisked me away to a surprise location.  On our first anniversary he took me to The Summit Restaurant on Mount Cootha.  We hadn't been back since.  And it was there that he took me last night.
We talked of old times, we shared a bottle of wine, and a beautiful three course meal.
Its not our usual 'date night' by a long shot.  We're more gourmet pizza and a DVD types.  But something about the setting, sitting and chatting, and being so grown up was just perfect.  We might not do that again for another 10 years but it was magic.

Feelin' it

Hands up who's hot!  Yes here in Brisbane its very very humid and hot today.  Storm coming soon I hope!  You can see in my photos that its wearing me down this constant humidity.  Why the cardigan you may ask?  Because my office doesn't understand air conditioning.

Basque Dress, Myer
Cardigan, Sussan
Belt, free with jeans
Necklace, Links of London

Mr Man and I did a movie double up on the weekend.  We saw I Am Number Four and The Green Hornet.  Both were quite good, but we did have a mad dash between movies as one finished right as the other one started.  The Green Hornet was my first 3D movie, and I don't quite understand the hype.  Plus because I wear glasses, wearing the 3D glasses OVER my normal ones was really uncomfortable.
Important day tomorrow!  Outfit and info will be posted!

Last Saturday was the lovely Kitty Kat's hens weekend.  It meant a full day of girlyness, then some night time fun up the coast at Mooloolaba (one of my very favourite places!).  
Piper dress, Myer
On Saturday, I had the distinct pleasure of car pooling with the hen herself, and being summer in Queensland, it was blue skies as far as the eye can see, and insanely hot and humid.  For our drive, the esplanade and lunch I bought this lovely dress especially.  
It's bright, beautiful and very light cotton.  Didn't stop me feeling so hot I didn't know what to do with myself, but it did help.
We had a lot of fun on the hens, and I will share what I wore for the night time festivities on another post, but for the most part....what happened on tour....stays on tour!

Home free

Well, yesterday I spent the WHOLE DAY in my pajamas.  (Except for throwing on an over-shirt to check the letter box).  It was glorious.  Well, it would have been, except for the being sick thing.  Silly head cold in my way!  Strangely though, its only when I'm sick that I feel justified to do absolutely nothing.  And its a sneaky pleasure.
Denim skirt $12 Big W, Shirt Target, Singlet $10 Sussan
Today, while still not well enough to go into the office, I am well enough to put real clothes on.  And again, wearing casual clothes on a Wednesday when if I wasn't sick I'd be at work feels very naughty.  So I went with the absolutely most casual thing I could find.  My big fat book and I intend to make the most of today, congestion or no congestion!

V Day

Dress, City Chic, T-shirt, Kmart
Well, unless you've been in a cave on the moon with your fingers in your ears and your eyes closed, you'd be aware that Valentines Day was this week.  Monday in fact.  Mr Man and I felt we were comfortable enough in our relationship not to worry about it this time.  And we didn't.  Except for Mr Man jumping out from behind a door to frighten me with a yelled 'Happy Valentines Day Honey' when I came home from the gym in the morning.
You can think we're sad for not celebrating if you want to.  I don't care.  Instead of being stranded with heaps of other people all hitting restaurants at the same time, we had dinner out Tuesday night (which for us means ordering gourmet pizzas and coming home to the couch), and didn't have to queue or wait or pretend to be lovesick teenagers.  We could undo the top button of our pants and it was cool.
But today, was different, and I wore this dress.  
Due to dress code restrictions at the workplace, I had to put a black tee under it.  No spaghetti straps allowed in the finance world!

A long time ago, Mr Man discovered my love for Michael Buble.  And promptly renamed him 'Bubble'.  Mr Man is not a fan.  Probably something to do with the crooning, and his tiny stature...and maybe my adoration...
Being a fan however, you can bet that I was at the Michael Buble (or Bubble) concert on Saturday night with some girlfriends.
And yes, I did get the shirt!
Did he sing?  Oh yes.  Was it awesome?  Damn straight.  Could I have been any further away from the stage?  Maybe four rows behind me before seating ran out.  Thank god for binoculars and big screens.  Loved the end, when he ditched his mic and sang without assistance.  OK so I had strain to hear being at the back, but it was still magic.  And even if I have to sit at the back, you can guarantee I'll go next time he's hear too!!
