After a rough night I felt pretty average in the morning and quickly threw this outfit together as I was running late for work. Definitely not my best ensemble. In fact, without my green patent pumps I would have looked extremely daggy.
Lesson of the day. Shoes complete the outfit.

Sundays always seem to creep up on me. Since I now have a family my weekends somehow now feel shorter and shorter. I don’t ever feel like I have enough time to do what I need to and on days like today when I am sleep deprived it’s difficult to be motivated enough to get anything done. I don’t mind it though because in the scheme of things my life is great.
Since my baby girl has kept us up all night we thought we’d head out, get some fresh air, sunshine, breakfast and a strong coffee. On a positive note she managed to take her first steps today unexpectedly which was pretty exciting.
Here’s to another weekend gone and my very lazy throw on whatever outfit.
I wore this outfit on Sunday so this post is a little delayed. I had to post about it though because there’s a little story behind these trousers.
For those that have been following me for quite some time now, you will all be aware that I committed to not purchase any new clothing for the entire 2013. As crazy as this commitment sounds I have no new clothes and everything I have blogged about to date is old- this years effort to contribute to less cosumerism and still remain as stylish as possible.
These trousers are one of three that I purchased from Banana Republic back in 2010. They were straight legged trousers with slightly flarred bottoms. I no longer liked the cut of these trousers but I didn’t want them to go to waste either. Also since petite trousers with just the perfect length for me are so darn hard to come by and new trousers aren’t an option I took them to the tailors. I had the all trousers modified requesting to have them cut in narrow down the legs. They turned out beautifully.
Things have certainly changed since I never do this. My old self would have donated these trousers or simply left them in a dark place never to be worn again. So there you go. A little something to think about for all those items you own that may never be worn again.
I know this story may not seem significant but it is! No new clothes for a year is a huge commitment for someone who’s a clothes lover to make.
Melbourne is world famous for its 4 seasons a day weather. It’s a place that provides great weather for layering because you never know when you might just need to put that top back on or take it off.
Whats great about this denim boiler suit is it’s comfortable and great for when the weather is not hot nor cold. It’s also easily dressed up with a pair of heels or dressed down with some high tops. An absolute wardrobe essential for me.
We are off to lunch so I thought I’d pretty it up a little with these lace up heels and vintage bag.

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.
Aside from the usual weekend errands and quality time with the family, we also made time to check out this weeks Sydney Road festival which is always interesting.
I was decked out in casual weekend clothes and my much loved metallic platform brogues. These shoes are so comfortable and never fail to get attention and nice compliments. I tend to always pair the brogues with skinny jeans as I find it works well. That said, if you have the pins for it, they would look great with a short number.
