Work Outfit Challenge - Day 192 and some retro home styling.

This post will be short and sweet because I have a very special post to deliver this afternoon which I'm sure you'll all love.

First up I thought I'd show you some of my recent home styling which the boy has actually approved of. I have mentioned it before but it is pretty hard to compromise when I like my vintage and retro bibs and bobs and the husband likes a minimalistic household. I think these kind of ideas are a happy medium.

Next year I'm going to attempt to de-clutter in the hopes that we'll both be proud of how the house is styled.

I picked up this sideboard at my favourite Lifeline early this year (I think it was around $40) to be used for the lolly buffet at the wedding. It is now taking pride of place in our guest bedroom.


And ... this old HMV tv was a total steal on eBay many months ago. I can't believe I actually won it - I think for about $21. I LOVE it and it would almost be my most favourite eBay purchase ever ... BIG call i know!



Does anyone else struggle with the constant battle between modern and vintage?

And on to today's outfit. Totally CAS-U-AL and another A-Z challenge to cross of the list.

R is for Relaxed.

Relaxed because we leave for Thailand in 3 sleeps and relaxed because it is my last day of work for three weeks!

(yes, I am wearing thongs to work)

pants: lorna jane

The sideboard and tv area look adorable! I struggle with modern and vintage all the time, hopefully when I move out it will be easier. Have an awesome honeymoon can't wait for this arvo's post.
