sun, rain and stripes


Today I rode into Fitzroy to meet up with Husband To Be for lunch. Although it started warm and sunny today, it got cold and rainy and a cardigan and raincoat were added :) My face is starting to turn back to normal, too. I wore my MAC Russian Red lipstick – I love it. I have helmet hair (will a hair-friendly helmet ever be invented?) but I didn't really mind; I am going to the hair dressers on Saturday and I am really looking forward to it!

Futhermore, someone needs to design a very cute and stylish bike helmet, don't you think? Those helmets always wreak havoc on cute hair!

Beautiful vintage dress! I love the pops of red in the shoes and lips.

Skye said...

Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Has he always been a Husband to Be, or is there a new engagement in the air? Or am I just hopelessly out of date?

If it's the former then a big congratulations, and if it's the latter, just ignore the blathering of an old and confused lady!
