Quite a bit has changed since I posted a couple of weeks ago , I am back at work and doing more hours than normal as someone is on family leave. I will admit it has taken a bit of getting used to being out in the world again after weeks of isolation and also getting up to speed with the new safe distancing and cleaning in the store.
Australia has started a three stage easing of lock down , varying from state to state as our Covid 19 infections have remained low and we have good testing and tracking procedures in place.
This was my outfit for a pleasant walk around the neighbourhood on a sunny late Autumn afternoon . All old favourites, my black Moyuru skirt, Sabatini peplum jumper , cropped black leather jacket by Caroline Moore, a red velvet newsboy cap, red gloves from Bilboa, Spain,coloured beads and Preen sunnies.
I have loved seeing the teddy bears in the windows of many of the houses in our neighbourhood. I can imagine the fun families with little children must have going on a bear hunt and counting the teddies.
This house is around the corner from home and the displays change frequently , I loved the possum.
We live in an older area of our small city and there are many beautifully restored houses .

At present I am also participating in an Instagram challenge #a hat a day for May for Milliners Australia. Each day has a different type of headwear or theme , I am having fun finding the right hat in my collection. For today I have chosen this velvet navy hat from milliner Frederick Fox , who designed hats for Queen Elizabeth. I found this a few years ago at a local recycle store.
The hat topped my work outfit of the day- Moyuru skirt and black knit.
