My Style Diary - Leather and Lace

Hello hello :)

Long time no see! Life's been pretty busy lately and I just haven't found the time to blog. I'm back now though and ready to get back into it!

First off - Happy Valentine's Day! 

I'm not usually one to get super excited about this particular day (not that I have anything against it - I like the idea, but usually it just passes by like any other day). Lately though, I've been trying to enjoy and appreciate the little things in life and just generally try to have a bit more fun each day. So why not take any opportunity to do so. For example, I had a bit of time yesterday before going out with my girl friends, so I thought I'd try my hand at a little nail art. I quite like the Valentine's day theme I came up with, but the best part was that I actually had a lot of fun doing it. 

I've been reading Gretchin Rubin's book "The Happiness Project", and I'm up to the part where she talks about "Finding more fun". I haven't finished the book yet, but I'm really enjoying it and would definitely recommend it.

This is what I wore out for dinner last night for "Galentine's Day". 

As in going out with the "Gals"

(It took me much too long to realise why this event was called "Galentines". At first I thought it was something about being "Gallant")


These leather-look shorts have been sitting unloved in my wardrobe for the past few months, just waiting to be worn. They're one of those pieces that at the time I was buying them I thought "These will be really great, I'll be able to wear them heaps", but when I got them home they just didn't really feel like "me". I'm quite the girlie-girl and these shorts just felt a bit too tough for my style. When these beautiful shoes arrived though I knew I'd found a perfect match. Teaming them with a feminine top (I love the blush pink and lace) and heels makes the shorts feel a little more polished and pretty rather than making me feel like a bikie :)

Okay I guess I'll leave it at that for today. I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day whatever your plans may be! 

Lots of Love
