Domestic disturbance

Here's some belated shots from Sunday.  Ah... Sunday. The day of rest or at least that's the way it is intended.  But we were woken again by the business adjacent to our units mowing the lawn at an ungodly hour. So the day commenced with an early rise, quick dressing and an outing to the park to get a bit of peace and to avoid what would ultimately be a confrontation later in the day about this on-going and unreasonable practice.  So taking account of the disturbed and shortened sleep please excuse the barely awake and subdued looks.  I felt like the walking dead. 





On a much more positive note, drum roll.... meet my new (well new for me, but really second hand) Balenciaga jacket. It's my first outing with it, albeit at the crack of dawn and it's an ultimate cheer me up item.  I wore it to counteract my rock bottom mood which amazingly worked.  My outfit was in dire need of a little structure since I was wearing my baggy green, uber comfortable pants which can make you look like a marshmallow.  They can give the perception that you are easily 10 kg heavier than what you actually are if not rolled up to define the legs. The pants bring back memories of 'hammer time'.  You seeing it?

What I'm wearing:
Balenciaga leather biker jacket (HERE) or (HERE)
Isabel Marant Elko pants (last season)
Isabel Marant Betty sneakers (HERE)
Death by Zero rocker tee


Notice my gorgeous winter glow on my rather chilled legs?  Yes sarcasm was implied yet it's coming from a humorous place I assure you.  I can pretty much reflect light in the pitch dark at the moment with my bright white pins. It's taken a couple of years of what seems like back to back winters to achieve this colour.  It's a long road back to a healthy glow but I promise I'll rectify my colour before I unleash a summer shorts post on you.

  6. LOL! Mandi, if you were in Asia, you could seriously bottle up your "whiteness" and sell them for a bundle! Years ago when I was still coaching, it was a particularly hot day so I turned up in shorts. My students reacted by dashing off to grab their sunnies claiming that they're blinded by the reflection. I've been wearing my "hammer time" pants lately.

    Yikes! First it was Kayin, now it's you. I really don't need to lust after another leather jacket!

  10. Love that jacket on you so much! I'm so jealous, I want one but never 100% comfortable with the size I guess I'll be. I wish somewhere stocked them here for me to try on!

    Hope you sorted your neighbours!

    1. It was pot luck with the jacket sizing. I went on the sizing info my gf's gave me and it was spot on. Very lucky and extremely nervous until it arrived not knowing if it would fit. Ah.. the neighbouring property. Yes all sorted. Fortunately we have a brilliant Council!

  15. Oh Mandi, this outfit is exactly what I wanted to spend this weekend in! I just couldn't do it on my own and spent the majority of the weekend in dresses. Not that I mind dresses but that's typically what I wear Monday-Friday. I've bookmarked this for next weekend. So comfortable looking but chic and you're right that jacket adds just the right amount of structure xoxox

    1. Hi Steph, I agree. A Balenciaga jacket is a huge financial hit if you buy brand new. Keep an eye out on eBay or on the forums too and when you are after one, you will save a bunch xx
