Feeling Japanese with a spring Topshop Kimono

Paper Scissors Skirt
Forever 21 clogs (similar here)
Topshop "Brighton Rock" lipstick

Hi all! Hope all is well. Thank you again for all the sweet comments, they really make me happy!
I'm putting aside a lot of time to visit everyone's blogs, and every time I visit, I'm getting more and more fashion inspiration to feed off.

Well, good news, I passed my Green P's driving test here in Sydney; basically its the 2nd stage in your driving career. I am now considered less of a danger to society on the road. Other things I've been up over the past few days are: applying for many many bar-tending jobs and administration. No luck yet, but I have to hang in there. I'm not after a lot of money, but just enough to survive. I already know a lot of money won't bring me happiness, but just enough money to buy food and to continue blogging will.

Today it was a beautiful day (Spring here!) so I wore a beautifully printed kimono jacket I got from Topshop. I paired it with a mix of prints - polka dots, bright pink lipstick and a floral skirt. I'm not sure if I can pull it off, but many people tell me I can because I'm looking tanned all year around and tend to make bright colours pop. 

Another plus to a great new season is, new TV series are starting again. I'm looking forward to new How I met your Mother, Glee and Two and 1/2 men. But I'm REALLY looking forward to Glee. My dream is to be a Glee kid!

Have a great week!


xx Natalie

P.S I'm loving this skirt! I wish my boyfriend will buy it for me :(
