What I Wore Wednesday for Frocktober

pleated poppy
Today's WWIW post is in support of Frocktober, a fundraising initiative for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). In Australia, a woman dies every ten hours from ovarian cancer, and it can not be detected by a pap smear, so it is usually quite advanced when it is discovered. I am hoping to raise at least $500 for the OCRF through the month of October, to help them raise much needed funds to research and develop an early screening test.

Frocktober aims to not only raise money, but also to raise public awareness of ovarian cancer, as well as promoting women's health and wellbeing. I will try and wear a dress everyday during October, and I am asking each and everyone of you to at least consider supporting me in this amazing cause.

Monday: Today was the absolutely quintessential spring day! It was sunny and warm, but not too warm. My perfect kind of day, and this was a perfect outfit.

Camel merino sweater: Sportscraft
Skinny bootleg jeans: Gap
Horn cuff: Mai Tai Collection
Giraffe print flats: Lands End

Thursday: Today was another beautiful day, but was unexpectedly much, much cooler, so I spent most of the day freezing my behind off!! These jeans are new from Gap, and I am in love - the skinny bootcut is so flattering, and the denim is really nice. I also have them in fuchsia and lemon, but I hope they bring them out in another rinse - that is how much I love them!

Chiffon print blouse: Old Navy
Skinny bootcut jeans: Gap
Green plastic bangle: Myer
Red retro flats: Naturaliser
Wooden bead necklace: upcycled piece by me


Friday: Is spring really here? I think it is. I think we actually had a whole week of glorious warm and sunny days. It is still cool at night (the kids are insisting on keeping the flannel sheets for a while yet!) which is nice. Today I spent the morning at work, and then errands in the afternoon, with a quick lunch with hubby and the kids squeezed in the middle.

Teal, black & white jersey dress: Jane Lamerton
Silver necklace: Verite
Green snakeskin heels: Kenneth Cole Reaction 
Hammered silver earrings: Verite

Saturday: Today we were invited to a birthday party for one of Irini's friends, and we were running late, so I grabbed the first two things I could find, totally forgetting about my dresses all month plan for Frocktober!
Navy and white bird print shirt: Old Navy
Skinny boot cut jeans: Gap
Aqua handbag: Kate Spade
Blue resin bangle: Myer
Floral print heels: Seychelles

Monday: I was pretty much at home all day today, with nothing much planned except housework, so this jersey dress was perfect, and meant that I could quickly dash to Irini's therapy session later in the day just by slipping on a pair of ballet flats.
Blue, white & black jersey dress: Basque by Myer
Black ballet flats: Lands End


Tuesday: The weather is really starting to heat up now! We spent the morning at home, and then late afternoon, I went to run errands and do the grocery shopping.

Floral print dress: Leona by Leona Edmiston
Pink & green bangles: Myer
Aqua leather tote: Kate Spade
Silver leaf earrings: Verite
Silver tree of life necklace: Pilgrim
Black leather heels: Naturalizer


See you all next week!!
