DENIM SHORTS… DENIM SHORTS

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.

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.

THE FAUX TOUCH

If you aren’t quite into fur for animal cruelty reasons there’s always the faux fur option.

Today I’ve sported just that. A red faux fur gillet purchased from a few seasons a go. It’s a wardrobe item favourite and certainly a show stopper.

A gillet is quite versatile. I have coupled this gillet with dresses, jumpsuits and denim shorts. Just throw it over the top.

Thanks for stopping by.

HOODED

Hello lovely people and welcome to the weekend.

Starting on a personal note, this weekend marks 10 years with the love of my life, husband and father of my beloved daughter. We aren’t getting up to anything exciting. It’s just the usual errands and catching up on sleep and family time. Just normal people getting up to normal things.

As usual for the weekend I am all geared up in something comfortable. I have on a light weight parka which is perfect for our unpredictable Melbourne weather. It’s just after midday and we have had both rain and shine!

What I love most about this parka is that it’s oversized and made with flowing fabric. This allows me to drape the parka over as many layers as I need without feeling bulky. Also if it does start to rain again I can just pull the hood over my head.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you enjoy the weekend.

MY CASUAL SELF AGAIN

It’s my day off and as I have said before, nothing beats a comfortable pair of jeans and flat shoes.

Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend.

Hello lovely

If you are reading my blog for the first time, I am proud to make mention that I haven’t purchased a single item of clothing for Moi since 1 January this year. Everything I’ve worn this year thus far are items I already own. There are clothes I have had for years and some that I purchased and just never bothered to touch. Now each day I become more fond of what I have and less of a need to indulge in compulsive consumerism. I am completely amazed at how I have managed to kick such an addictive habit.

So what’s new on the blog?! My hair! Truth be told, I made an attempt last week to do it myself and it didn’t turn out so well. So I have waited a week for it to grow out and slipped in to the hair salon today to get it done properly. When I arrived home and showed my husband, he got the shock of his life and then figured he would eventually get used to it.

In terms of styling, this hairstyle does come with a price. The cut is edgy and not so feminine therefore the clothes I have chosen to wear today are fine however, I am unsure how I would look in pretty floral dress or my work wear for instance. Speaking of work wear, fingers crossed my colleagues do not find this cut too inappropriate for the work place.

In the coming weeks, days and months, I am looking forward to all the new looks I can bring with this new hairstyle. Its the new me and I hope you will enjoy what’s to come.

Thanks for reading and hope you all have an ah-mazing weekend.

HAPPY EASTER

Hello everyone and happy Easter. The best thing about this long weekend is that not only do you get to over indulge in some well deserved chocolate but its also a great time to rest up and spend quality time with family and friends.

Hubby and I hadn’t intended to have a family getaway for the long weekend but we made some last minute plans and managed to find ourselves some accommodation. We didn’t trek far but leaving home for a day was the best thing we did for ourselves. You don’t really think about it but staying at home during the holidays gives you the excuse to do as much as you can around the house, so rather than going back to work rested, most of the time you are exhausted. So we went somewhere where there was not much to do which forced us to do nothing and it was GREAT! Our little lady got plenty of attention from mummy and daddy too 🙂

I have done quite a bit of weekend travelling so when it comes to packing, I reckon I am pretty good. I am very low maintenance and all about convenience. I generally have 1 day/night time time outfit, 1 pair of shoes, pjs, undergarments, toiletries and very little skincare and cosmetics. Believe it or not, my husband packs more than I do! Yep thats right.

This weekend, I chose to wear denim with denim. It was comfortable, casual and makes a great day/night time outfit for a low key getaway. Last but not least, its the outfit I chose to celebrate the fact that I haven’t purchased a single item of clothing for myself in 3 months! One quarter down and three quarters to go.

Til next time. xx
