fancy pants

You know those days where it's not really about dressing up, but more about just throwing something on because you've got to take you (or your kids) to the doctor? Well, that was my exact morning this morning. Not much thought was put into what I threw on before walking out the door.

This is what I wore to walk my two year old to the family surgery down the road. Seems we have a case of conjunctivitis. Oh, what joys! Poor little fella is now sleeping off his yucky eyes, and hopefully those eye drops are working their magic so he has his baby browns back (minus the yellow goo).

 And after that medical discovery, aren't you just thrilled to have heard all that?

Turns out this is what I ended up wearing all day, and then to the movies last night too. If you haven't seen "Red Dog", I can't recommend it more highly. Such a great Australian movie. I think I smiled all the way through. Such wonderful heart warming true story (and it reminded me of my life living in an Aboriginal Community in the Western Desert!)

 Here is my new bag (isn't it the bomb?) thanks to Lizeylou's fabulous giveaway!

And my cheapie (and ever so comfy) shoes from Rivers.

And how about a style challenge this week?

I've decided that this will be the week of five days = five ways! Yes, I'm starting with something, er, extremely difficult - the white tee. Mainly because it's such a spring/summer staple.

Voila. And so starting tomorrow my white tee is going to get a bit of wear. (And washing too!) Let's see what we can do with it.

Did you have to rush somewhere this weekend, or did you get a chance to dress up? And how about this white tee challenge? Up for it?

Why don't you linky up your Fancy Pants post below (yes, you need to have a photo in an outfit!) and add a link back to me in your post. You can also include the button belowThen pop over to visit other bloggers who are dressing up this week.

  6. I love this look, Kym. And I really love the shoes. Goes well with Lizeylou's fab bag.

    I love it that you manage to look fashionable even for a doctor's appointment. Recently, I saw a tweet from Nina Garcia quoting Coco Chanel, "I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little, if only out of politeness." So hooray to you and Fancy Pants! xx

  7. Kymmie, how do you look so darn gorgeous for a trip to the doctors?! Not fair! Love your 'thrown together' outfit, it's lovely :o)
    Hope the little man's eyes clear up real quick, poor little poppet, conjuntivitus sucks :o(
