SEXY BACK

Hello babes

Thanks for dropping by my blog for a read and view. So what are your thoughts on women in mens clothing? I have always been one to borrow my husbands clothes and more so recently which could be a sign that I am just about officially over this no shopping saga.

I believe, as women, you can and have the ability to make mens clothing look sexy and feminine if not edgy. Today, I decided to give his shirt a cropped look by tucking the sleeves and back into the straps of my bra. It’s a clever concept and stays put without the use of any pins. Hubs did however say to me today “do you think people realise you are wearing a mens shirt?”. I responded with “not sure but I have sexified it a little”. If I hadn’t mentioned that this grey t-shirt was mens, could you tell?

When I saw this snapback on asos.com I had to have it!

Today is the perfect example of me expressing my weekend street-style but I am dying to show you just what I can do with “his” clothing on an average work day….post to come on that.

Thanks so much for reading and have a wonderful weekend.

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.

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.

FOR EVERYDAY WEAR

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?

NOT SO PERFECT

Hi and welcome to another Monday!

It’s normally a working day for me however, I had taken some extra time off work to celebrate 4 years of marriage away from home. Although it’s Winter here in Melbourne we’d hoped to brave the cold and make the most of it in Phillip Island.

So after the long weekend, I would have loved to place a tick next to the list of things we had wanted to do…BUT we didn’t quite get there. The little one got really sick spiraling into eventful nights and uneventful days. I’ve now also ended up with a toddler that just wants her water served in a coffee cup.

So after 3 nights, we checked out of the resort and headed out for our second cup of coffee, some decent breakfast and watched the pelicans get fed before heading home.

I wore this outfit for just about the whole weekend and since it was so cold in Phillip Island this beanie became just anothet limb. I do love my short hair but gosh I’d be so much warmer if I had longer hair. On that note, it’s our final month of the Winter. Hella yes!

Lets all hope my little one gets better soon.

And as always thanks for reading my post.

MORE SLEEP PLEASE

Hello hello

I kept my outfit extremely casual for work today. Mostly because I decided that this morning it was more important to sleep in a little and less important to get dressed up for work. Most nights I do a bit of prep by selecting my work clothes the night before. However since I returned back from holidays a few weeks ago, I just can seem to get my shit together. From my clothes, to my workouts to my eating habits- It’s all off and not in a good way. “Is this normal?” I ask myself and no it isn’t. Something is wrong with me because I have been feeling extremely tired and unmotivated lately. See I’m normal after all.

Cheers to wrapping up this freaking week because it feels like hell and back to the normal me next week.

TAILOR

Hello gorgeous people

I wore this outfit on Sunday so this post is a little delayed. I had to post about it though because there’s a little story behind these trousers.

For those that have been following me for quite some time now, you will all be aware that I committed to not purchase any new clothing for the entire 2013. As crazy as this commitment sounds I have no new clothes and everything I have blogged about to date is old- this years effort to contribute to less cosumerism and still remain as stylish as possible.

These trousers are one of three that I purchased from Banana Republic back in 2010. They were straight legged trousers with slightly flarred bottoms. I no longer liked the cut of these trousers but I didn’t want them to go to waste either. Also since petite trousers with just the perfect length for me are so darn hard to come by and new trousers aren’t an option I took them to the tailors. I had the all trousers modified requesting to have them cut in narrow down the legs. They turned out beautifully.

Things have certainly changed since I never do this. My old self would have donated these trousers or simply left them in a dark place never to be worn again. So there you go. A little something to think about for all those items you own that may never be worn again.

I know this story may not seem significant but it is! No new clothes for a year is a huge commitment for someone who’s a clothes lover to make.

Thanks for reading. Xxx
