FAST APPROACHING

Hello everyone

As I write this post I think about how the end of year is fast approaching. I am excited about the new possibilities for this blog in the new year. At the same time I feel as though I will need to commit to a new direction to keep my blog going. It’s mostly been about keeping track of my new years resolution through fashion so what next?!

For now however, I hope you continue to enjoy the outfits I pull together and my ability to not shop for any clothes for one more month! I do provide updates on a daily basis via my Instagram account so feel free to be bombed with photographs and follow any time.

The outfit for this post is a combination of denim on denim with tartan and some statement jewellery. I understand this look is in at the moment so thought I’d give it a Trendy Momma go! Thing is apart from my necklace I have had these items for years now. I’ve just never worn it like this before. Admittedly since I do lean more towards casual dress I love this trend and secretly wish for tartan to stay.

Hello everyone

This week, I discovered my incredible ability to store things away and completely forget about them. From clothing to makeup to food to toys. So you can imagine my excitement when I’m looking around for place to store food and randomly come across a collection of wide leg trousers. These trousers must have been tucked away since I was pregnant – over 2 years ago.

Indeed myself along with the rest of our fashion society has become obsessed with the skinny leg pants but oh my the reason whey I fell in love with wide legs in the first place all came back this week. Plus they fit better so in the wardrobe they go.

Thanks for reading all and I will catch you again soon.

AN OUTFIT FOR CHAMPIONS

Hello all

I’m off on a course today and although it’s work related, all participants were encouraged to wear hoodies and comfortable clothing. It’s still extremely cold so the hooded attire worked a treat and this black trench coat that I pulled out of storage also came in handy. Feels good to be in casual form for work.

PATTERN UP

Hello everyone

Welcome to the weekend!

The weather has been crazy windy in Melbourne. So during the week I have made sure to avoid wearing skirts and dresses that could potentially blow up and expose my knickers. Sounds insane but imagine this….I work at a University and one lunch time as I’m walking across the grounds to grab a bite to eat the Marilyn Munroe scene happens- to me. Feeling mortified and embarrassed about the bunch of students that saw what they did I knew never to wear a dress on a windy day again.

On Thursday I wore this particular outfit to work. This feminine style incorporates a mix of tasteful clashing patterns and pop of red to brighten up the colour palette.

Take note of the wind proof pencil skirt. The skirt is also elasticated making it very comfortable and versatile enough to wear during and post pregnancy. Since becoming a mum I’ve grown to appreciate all my elasticated trousers and skirts. Even if you don’t have kids I’m certain you can see the value in elasticated items.

The velvet patterned jacket featured is a purchase from Las Vegas back in 2010. I have worn it several times this year however this happens to be the first opportunity I have had to blog it. The jacket is tailored around the waist and has a peplum bottom perfect to give a bit of shape to the outfit.

As for my green and white floral top, this happens to be from my absolute favourite store-Anthropologie. It’s my go to, everyday wear top. Aside from the fact that its quite pretty the top is another item that I had worn all throughout my pregnancy. It isn’t maternity wear but like Seed Heritage, Anthropologies is stocked up with a variety loose fitting items. Unfortunately Anthropologie is not available in Australia but they do ship internationally if you are interested.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for reading.

FOR EVERYDAY WEAR

imageimage

Hello and happy Monday!

During my glorious shopping days, I loved purchasing all my work basics at Zara, Anthropologie and Banana Republic. Although Zara finally opened stores in Australia we’re still patiently waiting on the others. Just as well since I have banned myself from buying any new clothing this year but….I am really hoping for Anthropolie to be here some day.

Today’s outfit for work is a neat casual ensemble of overseas purchases. A blazer and bag from London, top and trousers from the States and shoes from Hong Kong. It doesn’t sound healthy for our Australian economy however we unfortunately aren’t as competitive on stock or price.

Next year, whilst I do plan to refresh my wardrobe, I’m thinking I could do more trift (I happen to live in area full of amazing vintage stores) shopping locally. That way I will be throwing money into our economy and still contributing to less consumerism. This plan sounds exciting already doesn’t it?

ONE FAUX FUR GILET, FOUR WAYS

Hello everyone

I hope that you have all been well this week. Here in Melbourne it’s fabulous since there’s a slight hint of Spring in the air. Although this now means I’ll soon be packing away those Winter warmers and making more room in my tiny closet (that I share with my husband) for my spring and summer gear. I love this thought but wish I had a massive wardrobe so that I wouldn’t have to pack at all….right?!?!

As featured in this post, I’ve absolutely adored my red faux fur gilet which I’d been so lucky to get a hold of during an asos sale last year. It’s been so good to me and I’ve loved how it’s versatile enough to dress up and down. Before I pack it away for next year I wanted to do another 1 item 4 ways challenge (as seen here, here and here) featuring this gilet. So here it is.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post.
