Birthday Girl!

It was my birthday last week and I knew I wanted to take "Birthday style" photos for my blog. I decided to pose with balloons that would match my dress!
  I actually had to go to work on my Birthday, so I didn't do anything special.  It was really just another day, expect for all the facebook birthday messages I received!  My Mum gave me a gorgeous picture print to hang up on my wall, a card and some birthday balloons. 

 The dress I'm wearing in these photos is from an Australian brand Retrospec'd.  It's called "Sun, fruit basket dress in white", and there are a couple of sizes left, size 12 and 16 on the Retrospec'd web-page to purchase.  It is made out of 100% cotton twill, has a back zipper to get in and out of, a pleated skirt and has adjustable thin straps.
It's a great frock to wear over the summer months, because of the thin straps and the light cotton material.  I love the fruit print on the white background and the red border on the bottom of this dress and the pleated bust-line.
Note:  It didn't come with a matching belt, so I chose to wear one I already own from a previous dress.

Accessories Include:
Heels from Bait Footwear 
Handbag by Sun Jellies
Earrings and bangles from local boutiques
Necklace by Collectif Clothing 
Fruit hair-piece from Louella-deville 
This week's blog photos were taken by my good friend "Miss Vera Vamp" at the botanical gardens in Bundaberg, Queensland and by a cool graffiti artwork of a rose under a traffic bridge. 
In the gardens, whilst taking photos we were both being attacked and surrounded by annoying mosquitoes.  As it was late afternoon and was really hot and humid.
In other news over the weekend my Mum, my sister and myself went out for a drive to the shops and had lunch together for both Mum's and my birthday's.  Also I did some housework chores and took more blog photos of another outfit, that I'll share on here next week.
On Thursday it's Australia Day, which is a public holiday and I get to have a day off from work.  At this stage I have no set plans for celebrating Australia Day - probably just a quiet day at home.
Also I'm on the countdown (in two weeks) until I go away for a few days and have some time off from work.

Until next time!
