Minimalist March Day 7


I went to uni again this morning. I wore a trench coat because it was freezing, plus leopard print ballet flats. And I saw a ladybird!









Later I went to trivia at The Crest. Due to a marking error we placed 3rd instead of 2nd, but we walked away with $40 in vouchers plus a bonus free drink so I'd still call it a success. Good work ladies and gents! (Including PETE - hello if you're reading!)






Thrift and minimalism aren't always the same, but they're pretty similar in that both require making do and taking what you can get.


I always use a moisturising/heat protecting spray in the ends of my hair. Mine ran out the other day, but then I discovered this Lee Stafford sample from a Priceline gift bag I got last year. It has kind of a chemical smell but it seems to do the job, and really it's better than anything the shops sell because I already had it at home.





I have plenty of shoes, about fifty or sixty pairs, but I always want more. Lately I've been after more simple, classic styles - the kind of shoes that go with anything and are comfy enough for a variety of occasions. Imagine my delight when my gorgeous friend gave me these!



They're a perfect fit, just what I needed and barely worn. They are ever so slightly scuffed but fortunately I already have a Sharpie on hand for that. (I always use textas to fix shoes and bags, Pretty Woman was on to something.)


Thank you Giggles McGee!!
