OOTDs: Easter long weekend

Belated Happy Easter! We enjoyed a four-day long weekend from Good Friday to Easter Monday and it makes me wish four-day weekends were the norm!

Friday: I didn’t do very much at all. I was under the weather all morning and basically only emerged from bed, half human, around mid afternoon. I went to have dinner at my parent’s house, so essentially it was the epitome of a lazy day. I threw on some comfortable leggings and a baggy tee and couldn’t really be bothered beyond that. This tee from ASOS is horrendous quality and was probably the second last time I ordered from them. It’s so sheer for black fabric, and it seems to get a new tiny hole every time it goes through the wash. I’m always vowing to throw it out, until I think about the next time I could be feeling sick and miserable and only want something easy, light, comfortable and long to throw on…

Saturday: We went for a day trip down to the Mornington Peninsula for a few small walks. In the morning it drizzled but by the afternoon it was sunny and and mostly blue skies! I wore my Uniqlo cotton cashmere blend sweater, which is so incredibly cosy (review to come I hope) and soft, but it ended up being a bad idea because I got too warm. Whoops.

Sunday: It was another super lazy morning, and I only left the house to go find food, although most places were shut so there was very slim pickings. In the afternoon I went shopping for some new shoes for the colder seasons. For dinner, we met up with friends and hung out a bit. I tried to make it to the Haagen-Dazs pop up store but it was closed.

I’m realising that this skirt doesn’t fit very well at all. I was intrigued by it because it looks red from afar but if you’re up close the colours are actually orange and purple threads! Unfortunately the bracelet was ditched later in the day when I discovered it was pulling strands of the thread out. I am also amused by how floppy and unattractive my bag looks here, haha!

Monday: I had planned brunch for Monday and I had been looking forward to it for days! In the end, apart from brunch I didn’t do anything else all afternoon, except get groceries for the week and then in the evening I cooked and cleaned the whole apartment down.
