SOMETHING SPECIAL

Hello everyone

I’ve been holding back on a special announcement!! You’ve guessed it. I’m soon to be a momma of 2 and my little girl is going to be a big sister. As you can imagine, my little family and I are extremely excited and looking forward to December when we can finally meet our new addition.

Lots of love, Sovanny x

Hey everyone

I find my wardrobe that little more satisfying knowing that I could get away with wearing my husbands clothes.  His clothes are small yet large enough on me to give that comfort I always search for on the weekends. His Ralph Lauren jumper is just one of his many clothes that I knick. It’s too bad his shoes don’t fit me or I would knick them also. Do note that since it’s a common jumper, I often bump into a guy that is wearing exact same jumper when we are out and about. It’s much more awkward for them than it is for me.

What do you think? Do you like your clothing large too?

DARK ELEGANCE

Hello everyone

Last week hubby and I attended our dear friends wedding which was set at a winery in Red Hill, Victoria. Since most of my photographs are set in my backyard, we thought that after the ceremony we’d have the perfect opportunity to take advantage of a different backdrop for my blog.

I am so glad we did, because, aside from the gorgeous scenery, this blog now features a post of me in evening wear with a pair of knock out heels that have been in storage for I can’t even remember how long now. As elegant as I felt, there was some behind the scenes touch ups that needed to happen before any photos were taken. Like every other women in heels at the wedding, my feet were muddy, and my heels kept digging into the grass at the vineyards.  As a result I had disgusting feet and the tip of my heels were dressed with big balls of grass. So at the first opportunity I got, I went straight to my car and got out my baby wipes to clean my shoes and feet. My husband thought it was hilarious but I tell you what, even if you don’t have kids, go get yourself some baby wipes and leave them in your car or bag because you never know when you will need them. I distinctively remember giving a total stranger some baby wipes during my last overseas trip. I won’t go into the details but it was just as well I had some on me!

Now to this dress! This beautiful vintage number is beaded from top to bottom.  I love it so much and it kills me that I don’t get to wear it very often. It was purchase several years ago and since then it has become my go to wedding dress.  I have now worn it to three of the four weddings I have been to in the last three years and every time I wear it, it feels like the very first time.

What do you think of this number? I’d love to hear your comments.

Thanks for reading.

DON’T WE ALL LOVE TO SHOP ONLINE?!

Hello beautiful and welcome to the always anticipated weekend.

Several months ago I noticed a Saks on 5th Avenue online sale. I know! Believe me, I did have the idea of unsubcribing to all my favourite shopping sites but never did so as it turns out, temptation hit. I’d added a whole heap of items for my little girl to the basket and then somehow ended up looking at things for myself….as you do! Don’t worry, no new clothes…only a new pair of B by Brian Atwood flats. Just as well my commitment doesn’t extend to shoes and accessories.

I have had these pair in the box for months now and today my feet decided it was time to christen them.

Given it’s the weekend, I am my comfortable self in jeans and an oversized boyfriend t-shirt. For something different, I decided to crop my top by tucking it into the side if my bra and then slipped over my favourite parka for that extra wind shield.

FLORAL OVER FLORAL

Hello hello

I have been very active on the blog of late. For me I find it quite therapeutic to sit down after dinner and write a blog post about what I wore on the day so I hope you enjoy reading them.

You may have seen this very dress on my black and white challenge in March this year. Today I’ve decided to layer it with a floral cardigan and a cute pair of ballet flats. Despite my hairstyle this outfit made me feel very lady like.

DENIM NEVER DIES

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week I’m sticking with the theme of wearing my oldest clothes. Yesterday is was my plaid dress from Cue and today it’s my decade old denim biker jacket from Bardot.

There was once upon a time where I was going to just get rid of the jacket but I don’t know what possessed me to hang on to it. Nevertheless I made the right decision because it looks awesome, washes well and luckily enough always on trend. Today I have aimed for a casual look pairing it with skinny cargos and boots. It’s nothing revolutionary but the point here is you don’t need new clothes to look fashionable.

FATHERS DAY STYLIN’

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

Hello lovelies

It’s finally Spring baby and we’re kicking this glorious season off with a fathers day celebration.

Although we’ve kept it a low key event at home, I didn’t want to pass up on the opportunity to get a little dressed up. Most weekends I tend to look very casual and today wasn’t too different except I decided to pretty up my casual t-shirt slash hi-tops look by adding in a lovely pleated maxi skirt. As a result, a sporty and feminine look was born.

All these clothing items are old. However, if I do inspire you to create a similar look then I’m pleased to say that maxi skirts, t-shirts and hi-tops are readily available to purchase in most commercial fashion stores.

Happy fathers day to all the beautiful men and thanks for coming by. Xx
