I'm alive! I've just been in a uni exam/assignment prep lockdown, studying everyday for the past few weeks and having no social life. Yep... not fun at all. However, I do have only one exam left next weekend which I am not prepared for yet but I'm so excited to get it over with. Already planning catch-ups, camping trips and rsvp-ing 'Yes' to everything for when it's over!

At least I can wear nice clothes when I go out to get more food (via this Peace Park). Yesterday, Luke and I went out on the hunt for a bunch of healthy food to get us through our revision. We came home with yogurts, coconut water, kale, nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, plus some sneaky salami and string cheese.

I loved these leggings at first sight but I never imagined they would cause such a stir. Old ladies were looking at my legs as if it were the Victorian era and I was showing an ankle! But I still think they're wicked!

  3. It's funny, because those leggings cover a lot more than shorts, or if you were wearing only the jumper dress!
    I think they're ace and you are rocking them!

    1. I know! Meanwhile, these ladies staring at me are dragging their little girls home from a cheerleading competition who are wearing short shorts and 'sports bras' haha those poor kids must have been freezing!
      I guess it's just the whole 'looks-like-lingerie' thing? I still like them :)

      P.S. get 'bloglovin' on your blog so people can follow via bloglovin as well as google friend connect ;) my GFC has a glitch!

  4. I've always liked the idea of those leggings but did wonder how people actually pulled them off in real life because people can be so judgmental about what they associate such items with! I honestly wish I could grow thicker skin sometimes and just get on with it... but good on you for braving through the old ladies' stares!

    I have this vest (http://imgc.classistatic.com/cps/blnc/130501/520r1/9727md_20.jpeg) which I've only worn a couple of times because people associate the buckling used with well, yknow, something that's a little too risque and x-rated for god forbid daily-wear even though it's an innocent vest that I wear over other clothing! I really want to wear it more, but often I over-think who I might encounter or things I have to do that day, in terms of appropriateness.

    1. Ohhh that vest is excellent! I would just style it with a lovely elegant white or black dress (with long or 1/2 sleeves) to contrast the elegant with the edgy. It's too cool not to wear ;)

  7. Stunning as always Em! I always thought those were longer socks with suspenders - but they're just as cute being leggings. :-)
