We are seven days into the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Recycled Fashion and Vinnies Victoria. If you’ve been checking in, you’ll know that yesterday’s installment to the style challenge was shared on Instagram and Facebook as we were road tripping and fossicking for treasures at the Toowoomba Swap Meet.
The Toowoomba Swap Meet is one of the biggest swap meets in Australia held every year and attended my tens of thousands of buyers and thousands of vendors, there quite literally is something for everyone to hunt down.
Taking up the entire Toowoomba Showgrounds there is a lot of dirt and dust flying around and if there is any spot of rain you can add in the odd muddy puddle. So flowing maxi dresses and skirts are out and totally impractical for such a day. But given today post swap meet is a day of recovery after a 16 hour day, a comfy dress is in order as we popped out for an hour this morning to a local car boot sale then to grab a few groceries. So this lovely cotton maxi is on repeat from Day 2
of the challenge.
So here we are Day 7 of 14.
Wearing: Ditsy Print Summer Maxi Dress and Vest from my 10 selected item for 14 days all thrifted.
Accessories: Cap, Bag, Silver Cuff & peace pendent and pins all previous thrifted.
Every year we attend the Toowoomba Swap Meet it’s a hit the ground running day and a long, long one at that too. Having the three kids with us we are on the go the whole time keeping on eye on them and scoping out treasures whilst making it a fun day for all of us.
Hopefully that forgives me for not capturing a full length style pic for the the sixth day of the challenge and only remembering on the way home at a truck stop that I hadn’t checked in with a style snap so hence snapping a silly bathroom selfie with my big boy. But as you will see I stayed true to the challenge from my ten selected pieces.
I’m off now to lounge around for the afternoon and rest these weary muscles from such a long day. A round up of some of the finds from the swap meet will be coming up during the week.
