This week has signified some pretty huge changes in my life, essentially setting the backdrop for what is a fresh start to the year. I started a new job yesterday, and in addition to that I will be moving this weekend, yet am feeling surprisingly calm about these two upheavals in my life. It’s a great feeling when things just start falling into place when you aren’t even trying, especially for the girl who usually organises everything at least six months in advance (what can I say, girl likes to be prepared).
I spent half of my Saturday with my family for my yiaya’s 80th birthday, and the other half with some of my closest friends as I hosted some drinks at my place. These are the kinds of nights that usually lend to some level of silliness, like playing with leftover Christmas candy canes and chocolate, and of course finding repeated novelty in occasionally whipping on the Karen Walker cadet hat. Still toying with the idea of wearing this seriously.. out of the house, although I think the strange looks and the potential for the hat to go flying in the wind are likely to stop me. In the meantime, I’m quite content with wearing other such frivolities in my wardrobe like my kitty flats, everything polka dot, and of course, peplums. All good things come in threes..
