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.

OVER AND OVER

Hello

Thanks so much for following my new years resolution blog.

Do you have wardrobe items that you wear over and over again even though there are likely to be an abundance of other items to be worn? I do. Many in fact. It would be the reason as to why I already have so many pictures of this dress (here, here, here & here) on my blog.

You have to however give me some credit for all the outfit variations using this same dress. It comes with it’s versatility and my personal commitment not buy any more clothes. Makes me proud.

I hope this post provides you with some inspiration and ideas. As I have mentioned before, you don’t have to constantly update your wardrobe to look good.

Until next time. xxx

TEA TIME

Hello lovely

After some early morning sunbathing on Waikiki beach, I got dressed in a relaxed fringed t-shirt dress and headed to the Ala Moana Beach House restaurant for some afternoon high tea, where we were given the best seat in the house. This white Miami t-shirt dress happened to be the fanciest item I had packed for the holidays and worked a treat since the dress code in Waikiki is extremely relaxed. I paired the t-shirt dress with my everyday (literally everyday) boots and an oversized bag. Not to forget my new Balmain sunglasses scored at my recent Waikele Premium outlet venture.

FUCHSIA

I am normally not one for colours. In fact, my wardrobe could be stripped right back to just black, white, grey and blue.  However, I felt that the working week needed to start off with a colour less dull than the weather of late.

Whilst I had selected a blue blazer the night before to wear over my outfit, I decided to ditch it for my neglected bright fuchsia coloured coat. The colour combination was perfect and I stood out like a highlighter at work.

I can’t help but feel proud when I make the effort to wear something I normally wouldn’t because it’s a step towards meeting my new year’s resolution.

BLACK.LEOPARDPRINT.FLATS

A comfortable outfit for work today. Lots of black, some leopard print for a little sexiness and flats for feet loving. I have been advised to stay of the heels for a while to help with my posture. Unfortunately my body isn’t in quite the same shape since I had my precious girl.

Thanks for coming by the blog.
