What I wore: Spots and Stripes!

Hey all, how was your weekend? I can't believe I'm sitting here and it's almost midday on Monday now - boo hoo, these weekends fly by!

I had a great 'windy walk' yesterday and will share some pics with you tomorrow. I also went to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra "Romeo and Juliet" performance on Saturday night - that was great! We scored some free tickets through work and I didn't know what to expect and it was fabulous :)
NZ Symphony Orchestra
Have you ever been to the orchestra?

So back to the outfit. This is what I wore to work on Friday, then jazzed it up with some alternative jewellery for a meal at our favourite Turkish restaurant that evening.
Blazer, Recycle Boutique; Top, Peacocks; Leggings, Glassons; Shoes, Matalan; Necklace, H&M Berlin.
I am NOT USED to being this pale!! So I am starting with the gradual self tan. Day two is today, so watch out for a golden glow soon (I hope!!).
I love this necklace - it was the ONLY thing I bought on a trip to Berlin last year!
As you know, I *heart* birds!

Left hand: Bracelet, Shh By Sadie; Right hand: Watch, Guess; Pink leather bracelet, Sydney; Pink leather chain bracelet, Shh By Sadie.
Those of you who have followed my blog for a wee while may recognise the blazer from my thrifting shopping day here.
I love this pink blazer and have been searching for a HOT PINK version of it - does anyone have any suggestions? (Except the Zara one as that seems impossible to get!!)


  1. I have never been to the symphony but would love to go someday. Love the bird on the polka dots. :) I am just wrapping up a weekend doing nothing! ... I was under strict orders to relax. This was difficult for me but I really tried.

  2. So cute I love the mix of pattern.. Awesome!!

  3. You look beautiful as always miss Sadie!
    Love the look you put together and your hair is so luscious!
    Hope you enjoyed the weekend - I know it goes way too fast :(
    Why is Monday so far away from Friday yet Friday is so close to Monday?


  4. I love the pinstripe blazer! I love that you like the symphony! I'm trying to go to the symphony here at the end of July for Lord of the Rings!
