Ruffled Monday

Good afternoon lovelies! I hope you all had an amazing and relaxing weekend. I will admit that I didnt do much this weekend, and I loved it that way. I apologize for not keeping up with the blog these past couple of days but my mind was taken over by other tasks - and also, I was trying to build this brand new layout..what do you think?! :)

This dress is one of my favorites. I had seen it in an H&M store a year ago and wanted it so so badly, I loved the ruffles and the color...but never got around to buying it, then when I came to Australia I saw it in a random boutique. Its a remake of the original but it looks so similiar i wouldnt be able to tell the difference. It followed me all the way to Australia and thats when I knew it was fate. Love at first sight with this wonderful dress! And I must tell you about my new favorite necklace aswell. My wonderful friend Carla got it for me in Brisbane. Its a tea cup and pot! How cute is that? I feel like Alice everytime I wear it (which is everyday..shh! :))

I have a secret to tell. I have been obsessed with scooters lately..mainly because of Tieka, and her cute mint buddy - but I want one so badly. My secret : on my way home the other night a scooter was parked on the side of the road. I stared at it for about 2 minutes before I thought "I just want to sit on it..just for one minute!" and so I did. I sat on a random persons scooter on the side of the road. I imagined driving it around town with a cute little helmet, brown oxfords on, and a big baggy tshirt with skinny jeans. It was perfection. The next thing on my wish list : a mint scooter! I better start saving my pennies.

Tonight my flat mates and I are making curry for dinner and then I am hopefully going out for coffee with a friend. Oh, I love how we were created with the intention to have relationships. I am so thankful for friendship. I was thinking about that this morning..of just how blessed I am by my friends, and how much I love them. (Especially you kitty wilson!<3) I hope you all have a fantastic evening. x

  1. kate! the new layout looks wonderful! i've been itching for a new layout myself. and i LOVE the dress. i can't tell whether or not the lace in your shirt is part of the dress or a shirt underneath but lace and ruffles are like my two favorite things so seeing them in one outfit makes me smile real big. you are too cute my friend, too cute. :)

  3. I've wanted a mint scooter forever too. Mint green or cherry red. We have this shop in my town that has a line of them on sale outside, whenever I drive past in my crummy Toyota Corolla I stare wistfully at them, all shiny and beautiful. Sigh.

    Your posts just keep getting better and better! These photos are perfect. I love the different textures and that does sound like fate. You are such a gorgeous girl.

    Ah, that necklace! I want one!

  18. I seriously laughed out loud when I heard you sat on the scooter. I could just imagine you making sure the coast is clear before hopping on for a couple second and putting your hands on the handlebars pretending to be cruisin on it through town (you know you did).

    Looking good as usual!
