Striking gold

In Sydney for work last week and these self take pics are on my motel balcony.
Hmmm look a little sleepy- forgot to put mascara on. Oops ; )
Cue jacket (simliar here)
Zara shirt  (similiar here)
Zara shoes (similiar here)

This is my new shimmering gold skirt from Modcloth- fun and flirty this skirt may have just hit the chic jackpot : ) With a taste of Spring in the air it seemed like the perfect time to wear it, AND it has pockets, I love a skirt with pockets!!

Now I know these Zara heels have been absolutely hammered in the blogesphere and some of you may not be a fan of them, but I must say for us Aussies they (and Zara in general) are pretty darn exciting, and I haven't laid eyes on a single person in Melbourne wearing these hot heels : )


Last day of WINTER (or SUMMER for my Northern Hemisphere readers)!
Are you ready?
