Sportswear, Or Wearing Sports

This is probably the closest I'll ever get to ACTUAL sportswear - well, outside of leggings and an old t-shirt, anyway! I found this skirt in a Vinnies 'Retro' store late last year but haven't had the chance to wear it properly yet, as it was a size 16 and kept falling off! Finally I got round to taking it in and now I think it will be a very valuable piece in my wardrobe. I mean, how many skirts do you find that have photos of people playing golf, riding motorbikes and cycling (not sure why these are the only three sports featured on there...)?

I just noticed after I took these photos that there IS sailing on here, too.

It's still ridiculously hot here (it was 41ÂșC yesterday, and it's 36 today!), so I just paired it with some very simple basics. I'm really hoping this is the last of the big heatwaves before winter... not least because I have some very cute winter clothes on the way to me at the moment.

I'm really sick of having shorter hair, so today I braided it and pinned it up to get it out of the way and off my sweaty neck. I actually quite like it! It's inspired me to do a few more creative hairstyles while I decide what to do with it.

I've also become quite enamoured with red lipstick - I'm just wearing a lip stain in these photos but I bought some lipstick to wear on Saturday night and I loved it! Although after quite a few gin & tonics and white wine sangrias, it probably didn't look as classy as I hoped...


p.s I almost forgot another incident from today, I nearly got mugged on the escalator! Luckily I'd just been grocery shopping so I had my wallet in my hand, but I turned around and saw another lady's hand in my bag... eep! That will teach me to use bags with no zipper and a very loose clasp!


  1. That skirt is amazing, what a great find. I love the mustard colour as well. I cannot believe it is so hot over there, its only been in the low 20's here.

  2. I love the print on that skirt. It's so unusual. Very flattering shape on you too. Looks great!

  3. Yikes! Close call!

    I love the skirt, though. :)

  4. That skirt is fantastic, what a find!!! I love it :)

    That's terrible that you almost got pick pocketed on the escalator - what did the lady do when you turned around?

  5. I have so much love for that skirt! The random selection of sports on it is totally awesome. It looks gorgeous on you.
