What I Wore Wednesday - Maroon Fever

On this day for many years my uniform for the day was a Queensland state of origin jersey and jeans. For those of you have no idea what i'm talking about, who better to reference than my old friend wikipedia.

State of Origin is the annual best-of-three series of rugby league football matches between the Maroons and the Blues, who represent the Australian states of Queensland and New South Wales respectively.[1] Described as "sport's greatest rivalry,"[2][3]the State of Origin series is one of Australia's and the region's premier sporting events, attracting a huge television audience and usually selling out the stadiums in which the games are played.[4] Despite the existence of international tournaments and State of Origin being a domestic competition, it is frequently cited as being the highest-level of rugby league played anywhere in the world.

Given that I'm a Queenslander through and through, the only colour I'm interested today is maroon. Anyone ever thought it was odd that us Australians pronounce the word maroon as 'marone'? 

I picked up these tights at Myer ages ago on a two for ten dollar special. They are terribly short and the quality doesn't seem great. I won't be going back for more that is for sure.
kmart booties, miss shop tights, esprit blazer, dress from malaysia

I'm on to episode three of once upon a time. Is anyone else getting in to it? I'm very intrigued that is for sure.

Enjoy your Wednesday xxx


  1. I'm wearing a mustard shirt with my maroons scarf today :-)

    Heading to the game tonight (in a fancy box, no jerserys allowed) and have my maroon leather jacket planned :-D

    Hope you enjoy the game :-)

    Oh and I'm about to start watching 'once upon a time' now revenge is basically finished. Looking forward to it!

  2. I picked up some maroon tights from rubi/cotton on and they are pretty good! Rugby isn't a big thing here so I can safely say I hope your team wins. x

  3. what a gorgeous dress! love it with the blazer and ankle boots x
