A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Ruched Patterned Dress

It is finally cooling down in the land down under. I mean Autumn is finally here in Perth.  Woohoo.  Enough of the hot burning sun.  Sometimes it gets so hot,  I wonder if the aliens are trying to cook us up. (Just kidding).  Anyway, this morning the weather was just perfect, so much so that we almost didn't go to church. We did go eventually and this is the outfit I wore.  All old items that I've had for more than four years.

Oh, my 7 year old thinks I look angry in the first photo.  He said, Mama, why have you crossed your hands as if you are trying to tell someone that you are not talking to them? :-0

Thank you so much for visiting, hope you've enjoyed reading my blog.  Do come again. I am sharing this style with Sacramento Amate of MIS PAPELICOS, so please go over and share the love with other great bloggers.
