Outfit

This is an outfit I randomly put together very quickly and everything just seemed to fall into place. Usually my outfits are very planned well before I wear them but today was an exception. I rediscovered this polka dot skirt that I made a few years ago. I made it long before I started sewing class so it is not as good as the last few that I have posted but I still love it. I don't know why I don't wear it more often. I think the incorporation of red gives this outfit a different look to when I posted it two years ago here. I adore red and blue together at the moment. This red trench coat is one of the best items I have ever bought. It is from the kids department and I have seen a few kids wearing it at the same time as me but apart from that it is fantastic. It goes with so many outfits and adds colour.

This weekend I am busy completing an assessment for trade practices law. I was extremely worried about it since I am behind in the readings don't know the content of this subject very well. I am slowly completing it and I can't wait until Monday when it is all over.

Fantastic coat! I do love a red coat, particularly in winter when everyone is always in the darkest colours. I can't believe you plan your outfits! I mostly roll out of bed and stand helplessly in front of my rack feeling dread at having to pull something together :(
