Purple haze and op shop shoes

It's been a hot weekend in Melbourne, sweltering, the last weekend of the summer, but I have to say I'm looking forward to the sunny but cooler days that Autumn brings; my favourite season.
I purchased these Mollini purple shoes from the op shop recently for $8 and have been itching to wear them. The orange socks were a pressie from my beloved and tis their first little outing, the contrasting colour work really well, I think. My dress is a few seasons old, purchased just after I had my little boy in a bid to get me out of maternity wear! As we say goodbye to another Summer here in Melbourne, I give you one very summery outfit, taken on one very hot summery day.

Mini Cape Challenge 1

 mmm will it rain today?

 Last week I set myself a challenge: How many outfits can I muster wearing my little red riding hood mini cape. Got me thinking, maybe I could wear it different ways, around the waist perhaps? Worn like this, you can use the hood as a pocket, nifty! I reckon this outfit is fun, do you like my new jumper from Target, cute huh, only $39.
These shots were taken using my new D10 Canon camera, still getting used to it but love the close up shots, well maybe a wee bit too close on my face! Waah, wrinkles!

Casual caplet

Do you have something fabulous in your wardrobe but unsure how to wear it? I had this dilemma with my little red riding cape. The cape was a Christmas pressie from my beloved and way to cute to stay in the wardrobe. Got my thinking of a challenge. Next week I will see how many outfits I can squeeze in wearing this caplet. Today I'm wearing it casual with some khaki trousers and my prize winning shoes from a previous post.
In other news, I have a new Canon D10 camera, woo hoo, looking forward to experimenting with my snaps (the second shot was taken using the new camera).
Have a great weekend and join me next week to see how I go.

Be my Valentine dress

Ah Valentine's Day, love it or loathe it? I'm a little partial to some romance in my life, so yes, I love it. On a recent supposed window shopping trip, I spotted this cute little frock with its heart shaped bodice - perfect for Valentine's Day. Sportsgirl have the best sales, I picked this up for $39.99, who could resist a bargain like that? The bow belt was a birthday gift from my buddy Trace and the bow shoes from my buddy Anthea, they go just perfectly, Thanks ladies.
I'm even starting to love myself a little more after losing some of the weight I piled on over Christmas, been walking lots and staying out of the cookie jar!
Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers and if you don't have that someone special in your life, why not love yourself a little more, and maybe, just maybe something special may happen. Mwah love Sleekit x

Did you have a good weekend, yes? Good, me too. Following on, from my previous post where I featured the unique windmill brooch gifted to me by my best buddy Fi; I give you an outfit post. These pics were taken by my work buddy Beth using the bosses camera (it's an expensive Nikon D something or other), we were getting all kinds of looks as we paraded through the RMIT grounds; student folks thinking Beth was a journo and wondering who the hell I was! It was fun, the quality is so much better than my usual happy snaps, now wish I had a Nikon D something or other!

belt: necklace, gift from Beth, I like to wear it as a belt
brooch: gift from Fi, Dazed Dorothy
