SHOCK! I’m not actually wearing a dress in this photographs Which goes against the nature of What The Frock?! entirely, but for now, let’s skip to some more somewhat surprisingly elements of today’s outfit…
- There’s not an article of black clothing in sight! This is epic. Huge. I love black more than I worship a languid sleep-in, so this is almost breaking news, CNN style! (I kid, I kid!)
- It’s a remarkably casual get-up. This, too, is uncommon. I always admire nifty girls who are able to look so effortlessly stunning in more relaxed garb because I, for one, cannot. I struggle with the jeans-and-a-tee look enormously and as a result, rarely attempt it. I lifted almost every single item out of my wardrobe tonight with the mission of finding appropriate attire, but in the end (after trying half of the options on, and quickly discarding them – my bedroom currently looks like a crime scene in which someone has viciously ransacked it!), decided that my favoured style of sequins, ruffles, glimmer and gowns just weren’t suitable for tonight’s plans.
This evening, it was ALL about celebrating Father’s Day, so I took my father (of course!), mother and boyfriend to our local Thai restaurant for dinner.
The food was luscious (an appetizer consisting of a mixture of vegetables in a tempura-batter with ginger & honey sauce, followed by a main of tofu with roasted coconut, sesame seeds and spices, while my family and boyfriend shared a Massaman beef curry, mixed seafood stir-fry, calamari, curry puffs and spring rolls!), the atmosphere was fabulous, the staff were wonderful and the view reminded me PRECISELY of why The Northern Beaches is my favourite part of Sydney.
What I’m Wearing:
x Vintage silk/embroidered lace cream blouse ($3! $3!)
x Marcs Babydoll jeans
x Silver ballet flats, Target
x Emerald drop earrings, Tree Of Life
x Witchery bangle
x FCUK/French Connection handbag
How did you spend your Father’s Day, or what did the rest of your weekend encompass? I’m feeling marginally anxious at the moment, because in less than five hours’ time, I have to wake up to pack my suitcase, get dressed, and fly to New Zealand! Although I will try and post as frequently as I can while I’m away, I’m staying with my grandparents, and only one of my grandmothers’ has the internet… but I will try my very best! I hope you all had a lovely weekend; see you in New Zealand!
