Invincible

This outfit is from about a month ago. I wore it simply because I love the colours together.
sep 2011


As I was walking back to work after lunch 2 girls passed me, giving me the head to toe with not much subtlety. And not so quietly remarking to each other "Well! She's sure confident!"
While I know that this was meant to be unkind I actually take it as a compliment. A few years ago I wouldn't have had the confidence to wear something so bright and attention grabbing. And maybe it's not for everyone but it sure as heck beats ripped and ill-fitting sweatpants...

crazy person dress: random store in Ireland
tank: Smart Set
tights: We Love Colours
shoes: Fly London "Fava"


Today I'm thankful for the confidence that comes with age... I'm not 22 anymore. And thank goodness for that. I'm much more me now.

Love this color combo! You look great :) Isn't it funny, the older you get, the more confident you get? Great dress! Hope you are having a great time in Australia :)
