Photo taking outings (...? Is that what you call them?) never really run smoothly for Tess and I. Today I was eaten alive by ants because I sat on a nest, I ended up swinging from the jacaranda tree trying to retrieve a bouquet and nearly severely injured myself, and I walked back home with a shoes full of rocks and little twigs. Today was rather interesting and I won't lie when I say thank goodness it's nearly over! *And just a little warning; this will be a rant* I started the day off by sleeping in until 8 o'clock by mistake (school starts at 8:30am and I already had numerous appointments to get to before it anyway), my hair was an absolute abomination all day (I looked like I had been electrocuted), I "forgot" my glasses too which made things slightly difficult up the back of the classroom and my art teacher informed me that my body of work is due in a matter of days.
Then, in an attempt to soothe the soul and relax a little in between Geography study, I went out to take pictures and, well, you know the rest. Today was a slightly pooey day but despite it all, it was nice wearing an outfit like this. Colour is something we can all embrace so much more during the Spring and Summer so I took advantage of the colours in my wardrobe and put together this outfit - ideal for a picnic.
I hope you're all having a brilliant week so far! xo

It's terrible when some days, things just don't go your way! Hopefully the rest of your week will be better :)

Your outfit is a lovely pop of Spring inspiration.

Well despite the mishaps, it definitely doesn't show in these lovely photos! I love jacarandas so much and I'm so sad they aren't blooming anymore in Brisbane.

For me taking blog photos is very often full of mishaps, but my biggest one up to date was when I was in Russia this year and stood in very rusty barbed wire while taking blog photos in a field... and had to go to hospital for a tetanus shot...ahhh the perils of blogging :P
