I’m wearing: Hydros Crop top by Alice McCall (found here) || Vintage Levis denim cut offs (similar here) || Black knit bird embroidered cardigan by Zara || Earrings from Asos || Pumps by Zara
If I could name one place I was absolutely dying to shop at during my shopping drought last year it was Alice McCall. You can imagine my excitement when my husband gave me an extremely generous Alice McCall voucher for Christmas last year. Smart boy!
I fell in love with Alice a few years ago during a sample sale that just happened to be next door to my workplace. To this date, I still have some of those pieces and I’m proud to now be adding another to the closet. This Hydros crop top stole my heart and was worth absolutely every cent. I love it and since it’s current season you can still grab one for yourself.
Thanks for reading everyone and as always I love your comments.
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.
Excuse my fat fingers but I wanted so show you my cool bling

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?

Hello all and hope you are having an awesome week!
Over the weekend, I said good-bye to these denim shorts as they tore along my left thigh. I distinctively remember hearing the tear as I squatted down to have a play in the sunshine with my little one. After that I continued to wear them through the day but the tear kept getting larger to the point where they were no longer classy to wear.
I absolutely loved these shorts and wore them all throughout this year with a combination of other outfits. I do however love the classic denim, black and white look. It’s too bad they were my only pair and I won’t be stocking up on another until the year is over. Argh, just over 2 months to go people.

Thank you for all your support and love. I am so grateful.
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.

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.
