Happy Easter! Wish it wasn't ending....

Our collection of eggies... Easter Sunday we decided to go on a little trip to the countryside.... it was blissful. Ha that photo of me looks like I'm channelling a higher power, more like fixing my windswept hair ;-) 

I wish the long weekend wasn't ending! :(

Weekend Shop

Today we woke up late, having done all of our housework yesterday and not having to worry about any more housework for the rest of the Easter weekend (woot!) 

We were going to go to this hip little cafe that has gorgeous rosemary bushes out the front and is actually too hip for a name apparently. Unfortunately, there was a line to get in to eat breakfast and since we usually eat breakfast at 6:30am and it was 9:30am we couldn't be bothered waiting. So we went and did our fruit & veg shopping as quickly as we could at the markets nearby and then headed to our local organic cafe.. lots of available seats, lots of fresh produce, reasonably priced and quick service - take that hip cafe! 

Following this, we went into the city and went shopping for some new work shirts for Mr Bejewelled Dresser's new job. We also checked out the Country Road 20% off sale, where I bought a jacket for Mr's birthday on Wednesday and a little something for me as well (for good measure ok) ;-) 

Here were my purchases for the day...

- Country Road Lightweight Military Jacket (for Mr) 

- Country Road Oatmeal Merino Wool Cardie

Stacks of socks and a couple of pairs of tights.. The socks I'll be wearing with open toe sandals.. they are quite possibly the most perfect colours ever - Amazingly, found at Best & Less for $8.99 for the 5 pack ;-)

Favourite Op Shop

I don't usually play favourites with op shops but every time I go to this particular shop I come home with a huge haul.....and there were still things I wanted to buy but didn't! 

It's quite a drive from home (read: long) but it's always worth it... This time before I went I made a conscious decision to aim to buy wintery things... true, not a lot was on my already pages long winter wishlist but that's always the way with op shops, you don't always find what you're looking for.. it's the luck of the draw... Here's what I picked up this time.. 

My favourite buys out of the lot are the leather jacket and the maroon glomesh bag above. I haven't seen a glomesh bag in this colour before and well I have been looking for a vintage leather jacket for what seems like forever..
The dresses will be great belted with tights and heels.. my husband really dislikes the velvet one and I don't find it particularly flattering on me either.. but I have grand plans to completely restructure it... to make it shorter whilst still keeping the interesting pattern and ribbon trim on the hemline. ;-)
