Fashion, Baby Duck, and My Theory of Existence

On Thursdays I take a break from my normal life routine and I cycle into the city for a history internship. I love seeing my town by bicycle; it’s a totally different experience to getting around by car. Just like walking, when you’re on a bike you see details in architecture, distinctive plants, and of course, wildlife. The bike track I follow runs beside a river which is frequented by ducks. This spring, I’ve seen many ducky families enjoying the good weather. I’ve even helped one family cross the road. So on my way home from my internship this particular Thursday, I spotted a precious little baby duck, unable to move when I rode close by it.

Lazy Sunny Days - Lark

@findingfemme wears Lazybones summer dress from Lark.

I'm lucky enough to live in the home city of online store Lark! I have loved the store for years, and just this week finally got the chance to meet and adore Allison, business owner and kindred style spirit. Both of us love British vintage prints and classic style, and I'm pleased to announced that this shared love will now be a shared love between Lark and Finding Femme! 

Etsy Floral - Salmon and Orange with Stripes

@findingfemme wears stripes with floral etsy skirt.

Firstly, a huge thank you to all the people joining the conversation I started earlier this week about having a negative body image for myself, even though I’m quite a body positive person. It was great to hear from so many of you that even those of us that look like we have it most together, still have to deal with that negative inner voice though at different volumes. If you missed out, you can read it here. Today I’m showing you a treasure I came across on Etsy that has quickly become a key part of my wardrobe.

27 inches - My Preoccupation with How I Look

Liana of Finding Femme talks having a 27 inch waist and still being preoccupied with body image.

I want to discuss something that is quite personal. It’s something I’ve never spoken about on my blog, and really, it’s not something that I talk about with other people. It’s not something I seek other people’s opinions on. The topic I’m talking about, is my weight and appearance.

Halloween Costume - Around the World in 80 Days, Balloon.

Liana of Finding Femme with a hot air balloon halloween costume, including tips for making one yourself.

Happy Halloween! Halloween isn't a celebration that goes down smoothly in Australia. It's really controversial here, because people feel like it's really American, commercial, and not held in the right season. Some religiously inclined people also think it's a little satanic (that's not me). I have recently come to love Halloween, thanks to brilliant, intelligent people, whose company I get to enjoy each year. It was for a Halloween party with them that I made this costume. It's not my usual weekly outfit, but I hope you like it!
