#frocktober2014 days 12 & 13

You know what? I am loving getting frocked up! It’s really nice feeling well put together, and putting some thought into the frock of the day. I didn’t realise I owned so many polka dot dresses, and I haven’t even worn them all. I have been dropping a few hints on Instagram in the last…

#frocktober2014 days 10 & 11

It’s really starting to warm up, and this weekend we are being promised nice hot days. Which all adds up to an even more fun #frocktober when you don’t have to worry about tights and jackets. Because I for one cannot tolerate bare legs in cool weather. Call me grandma. On day 10 I chose…

#frocktober2014 days 7, 8, & 9

So I’m happy to report that life is settling back down to normal. School holidays are over again and the house has quietened down a lot. I’m still frocking on, and it’s becoming a funny game every morning of which frock to choose. I know there are some I will want to wear more than…

#frocktober2014 day 6 and the big party.

So day six has now been and gone, and with it my much anticipated fortieth birthday. It was everything I had hoped for and more, and I was very fortunate to have celebrated with a wonderful bunch of people. I would also like to take this opportunity to say that you will never again hear…

#frocktober2014 days 3, 4, & 5

Playing catch up after a crazy weekend. For day 3 I wore a deep orange linen dress from Target. It’s a recent buy and this was the first time I wore it, and I paired it with tan wooden sandals by Lee Cooper. Day 4 was party day as I celebrated my fortieth birthday. It…

#frocktober2014 day 2

Day 2 saw me don a Modcloth navy blue polka dot number with somewhat of a sailor collar. It also has a very swishy skirt ideal for twirling, and yes, there is a video of said twirling which will most likely never see the light of day. This photo was taken in the middle of…

#frocktober2014 day 1.

I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to #frocktober getting under way, especially as the last two days of September saw Sydney graced with gloriously hot weather, which more than took care of any lingering Winter chill. Day one was a little cooler, but still sunny, so I kicked off with a…

It’s almost time for #Frocktober!

As I mentioned in my previous post I am participating in #Frocktober this October by wearing a frock every day and uploading the proof to Instagram and this blog, in order to raise money towards an early screening test for ovarian cancer. While I have not been touched by ovarian cancer directly, I think it’s…

Frocks, more frocks, and not knowing how old you are.

You know how some things get lost in translation? Sometimes when it comes to telling time in the Croatian language, there is a unique way of saying, for example, half past six {or six thirty}. Older folks will often say it’s half seven. Literally translating their words, it’s half of the hour towards seven. When…

What? Too much for school pick up?

Spring is here!

Is there a better season? Not for me. There are elements of all four seasons that I love and appreciate, but the arrival of Spring feels more like a therapeutic defrosting of body and soul than merely the start of a new season. The sun is shining, the mercury is slowly nudging its way upwards,…
