Feeling Japanese with a spring Topshop Kimono

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 :(
