CLASH OF THE FLOWERS

Clash of the flowers2Clash of the flowers1Clash of the flowersClash of the flowers3Clash of the flowers5

Hello everyone

My friends often wonder how on earth I manage to get dressed, put my face on, sort my daughter out and take photographs for my blog before heading to work each day. While I’m pleased that we make it look effortless, it basically takes practice, effort, planning and a partner that helps out to make sure we are out the door quickly and in the office by 8am. Mind you, most days we get up at 7am and that’s a sleep in.

Any parent will tell you that some mornings are more tougher than others but,  I can honestly say that there isn’t one morning since my daughter has been born that I haven’t woken up with a smile on my face. Parenting and being a mum is soo bad yet so good at the same time and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My little one has made me a better person…a more appreciative person and someone that is more considerate and less selfish. Now I get to see life through her innocent eyes and have also re-discovered the child in me through our play dates. It’s absolutely amazing and I feel so lucky to have a beautiful girl and a husband that not only loves me to bits but helps me to get my shit together every single day.

Believe it or not, my lack of time in the mornings is a contributing factor to my creative sense of style or lack of. Unless I plan what I am going to wear the next day the night before, like this morning, I quickly put one together and what generally matters most is my choice of bag and shoes. When I’m rushed, all I know is that I want my outfit combination to be different to what I’ve worn previously. That is my thought process and it helps me with making a decision on what to wear in record time.

So guys, never mind my handbag…what do you think about todays clashing florals and my lime green pumps?

Biker jackets have been in and out of fashion for decades and now, they are here to stay…at least for me. This year, I have been completely obsessed with  the only two biker jackets I own. If only I had more. Check out all the outfit combinations I have come up with these last 9 months.Who knew it could be so versatile! Which is your favourite look? I’d love for you to share your comments.

Thanks for dropping by.

JUST A LITTLE FUN

Hello there

This year, I have had so much fun re-discovering all the hidden pieces in my wardrobe and wearing them again. In fact, I haven’t just been wearing them but creating unique outfits and pairings that I wouldn’t have otherwise thought about 9 months ago.

Take this origami inspired dress for example. About a decade ago, I remember heading out to Subiaco, Perth for an early morning shopping spree (as you do) and instantly falling in love with it.

I’m so pleased that I snapped it up because I don’t think the shop even exists anymore. Over the years, I have worn the dress for fun flirty occasions, but when I caught sight of it the other day jammed in my tiny wardrobe, I couldn’t help but pull it out and wear it to work. I’m just lucky enough to get away with it.

Enjoy whats to come this week, take risks, be happy, appreciate what you have and as always thanks so much for reading my post.

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.

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

READY IN TWENTY

Hello and Happy Monday everyone.

The dress code is very relaxed at my workplace. In fact, most days like today I’m too corporate and over dressed.

My general motto is look good, feel good. So I do like to put in that little effort that I have very little time for. I’m talking 20 minutes. Yes that’s right. Indeed I do have a toddler that my husband so generously looks after while I get dressed but I’ve always been one to get my face and clothes on quickly. Just as we’ll because otherwise I’d have no time for pictures.
