Pleats Please

(Mossman 'Pleats Please' shirt, vintage skirt, Sportsgirl wedges, brandless bag, Kikki K organiser)

I know I'm late for the whole "Happy New Year/2012/Resolutions" post, but better late than never! January is almost over but I only just bought my weekly organiser/diary for the year. I have 4 books that all serve a unique purpose: to stay on top of deadlines, to spark creativity and record my memories, to store favourite quotes from everywhere, and to write my to-do lists and reminders. I am insanely addicted to collecting new journals and books, and justify it by telling myself that they'll all be put to good use... someday.

But being realistic, having a weekly organiser is essential. Seeing my week's plans spread over two pages is incredibly helpful (but sometimes overwhelming) and brings my level of organisation up a notch.

This skirt still remains one of my most treasured vintage finds, and it is entertaining to wear on a windy day, especially paired with this vibrant mustard pleated shirt from Mossman. Side splits may not be everyone's cup of tea, but anything that blows fantastically with the wind is in my good books.
