FATHERS DAY STYLIN’

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

Hello gorgeous

It’s Monday….again.

Not to over spill the beans but life seems a struggle at the moment for various reasons. I know I’m strong enough to get through these obstacles because in the scheme of things I have a wonderful family, supportive friends, the Internet and an awesome little wardrobe. I can think of more things to appreciate however if it weren’t for these things the world would be a miserable place.

This week let us all appreciate the good things in life and all to hell with the bad.

Kicking off the working week here’s what I wore.

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.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for reading.

FOR EVERYDAY WEAR

Hello and happy Monday!

During my glorious shopping days, I loved purchasing all my work basics at Zara, Anthropologie and Banana Republic. Although Zara finally opened stores in Australia we’re still patiently waiting on the others. Just as well since I have banned myself from buying any new clothing this year but….I am really hoping for Anthropolie to be here some day.

Today’s outfit for work is a neat casual ensemble of overseas purchases. A blazer and bag from London, top and trousers from the States and shoes from Hong Kong. It doesn’t sound healthy for our Australian economy however we unfortunately aren’t as competitive on stock or price.

Next year, whilst I do plan to refresh my wardrobe, I’m thinking I could do more trift (I happen to live in area full of amazing vintage stores) shopping locally. That way I will be throwing money into our economy and still contributing to less consumerism. This plan sounds exciting already doesn’t it?

ONE FAUX FUR GILET, FOUR WAYS

Hello everyone

I hope that you have all been well this week. Here in Melbourne it’s fabulous since there’s a slight hint of Spring in the air. Although this now means I’ll soon be packing away those Winter warmers and making more room in my tiny closet (that I share with my husband) for my spring and summer gear. I love this thought but wish I had a massive wardrobe so that I wouldn’t have to pack at all….right?!?!

As featured in this post, I’ve absolutely adored my red faux fur gilet which I’d been so lucky to get a hold of during an asos sale last year. It’s been so good to me and I’ve loved how it’s versatile enough to dress up and down. Before I pack it away for next year I wanted to do another 1 item 4 ways challenge (as seen here, here and here) featuring this gilet. So here it is.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post.

SNAPPED

Snaps are quickly taken before I head off to work. On days like today it’s still dark out so unfortunately the lighting has worked against the mobile phone photography.

I’ve started the week with my boots over some sporty trousers with leather look zipper pockets. A huge plus about these trousers is that they have an elasticated waist. This was coupled with a simple royal blue top, tailored blazer and long strap vintage bag.

Once again thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
