Today I took a South American style and mixed it with Sarah Livingstone from Heart Break High which is a show from my teenage years that those of you outside the Southern Hemisphere will likely not be familiar with. 

She used to wear her hair in this style and I thought it was so cool. My hair was to my waist at that stage so it was a little tough to emulate successfully. So here I am today, 13 years later wearing the same style that a High Schooler wore in the 90’s. Some days I am so pleased with my choices.

It is stinking hot outside so this cardigan wasn’t my first choice but the lack of sleeves on this dress feel a little inappropriate for work (see? I do have boundaries) so I stuck it on. It’s not too bad in the office with the air conditioning. Which, incidentally, wasn’t working this morning so the cardigan was discarded for a good half an hour until they got it sorted. But we’ve since returned to our original programming.

The Man and I went to GoMA to see the Asian Pacific Triennial yesterday. It was such a good time. I really must make an effort to go more often. All kinds of phantasmagorical things there.

As soon as I saw this wallpaper I knew that I needed a picture with it. The clash against my shirt and shoes was just perfect. I also knew that if we owned our apartment practically every surface would be covered in this gorgeous print. It was from an installation about young Indian people leaving home to move to Australia, Europe, and the USA etc for a better chance at life. It was really well done. Everything on show really was fantastic.

Before I go I want to introduce my new honey. Don’t you just love it? Sure it weighs a tonne without anything in it but I don’t care. This is true love guys.
