Buckle up: new boots

Even though the weather this afternoon was well above 30 degrees Celsius, I decided to start doing some scouting for winter fashion. I’m really loving the way military stimulus are meshing with bright colours & wild prints for the upcoming cooler season.

After putting a layby on at Sportsgirl (I have no need for battle-ready knits & jackets just yet!) I had my heart stolen by these $80 wonders…

They make me feel like Erin Wasson & will kick butt with everything from denim shorts & jeans to floral skirts & trans-seasonal top&tights combos. Winner!

How to make ankle boots




So I admit the title of this post may be slightly misleading… For one to “make” a pair of ankle boots, one must already be in possession of some slouchy mid-calf boots.

These are then, not-so-magically, folded down to create some on-trend, in season ankle boots. Sure, it ain’t rocket science but I loves me a hard-working fashion penny-saver!

I rocked these with a floral knee-length singlet dress & oversized black cardi on a cool rainy day. Fashionably dry toes.

Healthy start

I’ve been a fairly keen gym-bunny for a while now… Actually, I’ve been hitting the gym (& walking, running & playing indoor netball) regularly for around the last 3 years… All in the same runners. the time has come:

With my fantastic new Asics joggers, I’m hitting the gym with a new fervor – tomorrow morning I’m taking on a weights class followed immediately by Zumba. I need to up my cardio & drop off the weight-training a touch – I’m still focusing on weight-bearing activity but just knocking the actual dumbbells down a little.

While I’ve got a little time off work, I’m finding that backing-up for double classes is a great way for me to get a big whack of exercise done while still staying interested & motivated (more than 20mins on a treadmill & I start eyeing off the bike or the cross-trainer) When I purchased the shoes (for half price might I add!) I also nabbed a half-price Puma tee & a pair of Adidas tights with 20% off the rrp. It’s amazing how more into exercise you can feel with a fresh new gym kit!
