What I Wore 7.9.08 (Father's Day!)

Today was Father's Day here in Australia, so I met up with my mum, dad and sister in Mandurah (about an hour from Perth, and about an hour from where they live). We had a picnic at the foreshore and then coffee and little French cakes!

When I got dressed this morning all I could think was "Florals...for Spring...groundbreaking." But whatever! I was going on the first picnic in Spring, so screw Miranda Priestly!

Dress: Valleygirl//Cardigan: Cotton On//Belt: Valleygirl//Shoes: I ♥ Billy//Necklace: Diva//Watch: Singapore

I got my dad a book of rock posters from 1972 to 1982. It had a poster of Debbie Harry from Blondie on the front cover, and David Bowie circa his Aladdin Zane album cover on the back, so I thought I couldn't really go wrong. My dad has great music taste, he used to play Dark Side of the Moon incessantly when I was younger (even though then I didn't really appreciate it at the time, I do now!) and bought me my record player (as in, vinyl player) for Christmas last year! Anyway happy Father's Day to my dad!
