Outfit of the Day : polka dot dress

Ahhhh…happy happy birthday to the Queen!  And thanks for giving us a public holiday Monday so that we could all enjoy a long weekend break in Australia 🙂

I wish I could say I had some crazy adventurous long weekend…but instead, I spent most of the time chillaxing, watching TV (specifically Criminal Minds), eating fried bacon drizzled in maple syrup, catching up with a few girlfriends and having quality time with my better half.

The sun was shining on one of the days so I spent time playing a bit of dress up and put on one of my favourite polka dot dresses and pranced around in front of the camera.  Fashion blogger, I aint!


I also had the difficult task of painting my nails…but with so many delicious choices courtesy of Face Of Australia, I umm-ed and ahh-ed for a long time.

These shades are from the FOA Colour Pro Triple Action Nail Enamel Collection which are not limited edition yay!  From left to right :  Flaming Lava, White Gold, Ocean Villa, Foxy Roxy and Show Off (RRP : $6.95)

I chose Flaming Lava…

…which happened to match the pillar box red satchel I decided to use to complete my outfit of the day 🙂  I put in all this effort to look good and my Husband didn’t even notice!  Men?!!!

Now that the long weekend is over, it’s back to the daily grind as usual…  Le sigh.

How did you spend your long weekend?

    How are you getting on with Criminal Minds? Derek Morgan hot enough for you or are you more a Hotch fan? I can’t decide…

    Aw, you look great! Yes, men, they never do notice, do they?! Luckily we girls have each other to support and encourage! 🙂

    I didn’t end up doing much, I was over at the Gold Coast until Sunday arvo and then spent the rest of the time recovering from the flu. Boo.

    Gorgeous outfit 😀 I also spent my day at home, chilling with family. That relaxing time was shortlived cause my dog ate rat poison by accident when dad was cleaning the garage. Luckily we got to animal emergency quite smart, so he’s doing fine now 😀

    Loving those FOA colors 😀 Might grab some before I go overseas ^_^

    I’m loving the polka dot outfit you are wearing. Somehow I’ve been buying a lot of polka dot prints too.
