Restyle: InstaGran

Hello! I'm sorry I only have Instagram photos today, but I got home late after a meeting with my boss (and plans to rearrange my beautiful window for the Windows in the City competition), and then having some cheeky Wednesday catch-up beers with a friend who is usually up at the mines. THEN watching It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia and developing my weird crush on Charlie Day. All the characters on that show are so awful and yet I love them. And I ain't gonna pretend like I didn't think canned wine was a good idea. And then try it out when walking around the golf course with Aidan the next day. Well, golf is boring. 

I called this post 'InstaGran' because a) I saw the joke in a Cyanide & Happiness comic and have wanted to use it for something ever since, and b) I feel it's appropriate for my style recently. The op-shop skirts and dresses are usually at a much longer length than what I'm used to, and so I feel very demure most days! This dress actually looks amazingly 1950s housewife-y with the sleeves rolled up and a headscarf on, but I realise this is probably a look also loved by a granny or two. The Hush Puppy loafers don't really help either, haha! But I fully embrace a bit of nana style every now and then.

Figures the one day that I do have an almost-all-opshopped outfit on, I don't take photos with my proper camera. Arrrgh. Anyway, I have a day off tomorrow and I am getting my hair cut and coloured! Last time I went I got pink and purple ends, so who knows what I'll end up with this time. I'm one of those people at the hairdressers who just says "...Look, just do what you want, really." All I care about is that I have a bangin' fringe at the end of it. 

And finally... I was listening to David Bowie all day and I thought I'd share one of my new favourite Bowie tracks with you.
