LIKE A BOY

Hope everyone is enjoying the week thus far!

I put this look together knowing that I needed to be presentable and comfortable since I was going to be at work and on my feet all day. As you can see, the combination of trousers, blazer, flats and short hair can create quite the cool preppy and androgynous looking girl. I’ve have experimented with a mix of colours but aside from that, my outfit is quite basic with nice blend of simple details.

CLASH OF THE FLOWERS

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?

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

SO SIMPLE

Hello lovelies

I set to work with basics for comfort. The outfit is so simple I thought I’d pair it with my much neglected leopard booties.

THE SUNNY SIDE

Hello lovelies

It feels great to be on the warmer side of Winter here in Melbourne. I can now expose some skin without feeling the chill. Awesome!

Some key items I have on today are my black short sleeve blouse and blue lace jacket. Both from Alannah Hill and both years old yet timeless and so very cute. I’ve teamed it with a floral cardigan, red skirt and lime patent pumps for that pop of colour from head to toe.

Hope you love this look and that it’s inspired you experiment with the colours in your wardrobe.

Depending on where you are in the world have a great day/night.
Thanks for reading. Much love xx

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.

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!

And as always thanks for reading my post.
