So….I’m not sure what happened to summer here in Sydney – this rain just won’t stop! While the weather is all doom and gloom outside, I have taken a rare chance/moment in time to hop back into bed this afternoon, snuggle in with my laptop and dream about the year ahead. I love that about a new year. It give us the chance to wipe the slate clean, get re-inspired and dream up new ideas, challenges, resolutions and plan exciting new adventures.
As we get ready to say goodbye to 2015, I am feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for the the year we have just had. There is too many wonderful and amazing things that have happened this year to possibly ever write down. I will be forever grateful for the moments, memories, people and places, opportunities, highs and fun the year has brought.
I am a big believer in not sacrificing style for comfort and vice versa. Being mum of two young children it’s always at the top of my mind when deciding on an outfit for the day – how can I be stylish yet comfortable all at once? It can be done, and here’s how.
If I’m being honest, PJ’s would have to be one of the great joys of my life. Who doesn’t love slipping into their soft comfy bed time wear for a night curled up on the couch? Nothing beats it.
Now, I may have taken the Christmas cheer a little too far with this post, but hey, if you’re going to do something, let’s not do it half way! It is the silly season after all.
So why not get in the swing of things and join the #elfie revolution!
SUMMER is here – yay! There is nothing quite like sun kissed shoulders, salt in your hair and long summer nights. It’s the time of year when life comes up for a breath of air and time somewhat stands relatively still. We reflect, spend time with loved ones, celebrate the year that was and gear up for the year ahead.
As we head into the summer months I thought I would put together a list of essentials that I live by to keep me cool and healthy!
I love fashion. It tells a story and you can be whoever you want to be in the given moment of getting dressed for the day. I also love when I discover a new fashion label! This happened when I received an email recently introducing me to the Melbourne brand Dilia. Their interesting design and black, white, colbolt blue and nude colour palette had me at hello. When I had the chance to try it on, it was everything I wanted it to be!
Here are some sneaky snaps of what the brand has to offer, and why I love them so. Check out their pop up store in Galleria Melbourne if you can!

This time of year can get a little hectic, manic even, with everything that needs be wrapped up for the Holiday season. On the flip side, it means parties, celebrations and a chance to kick up your heals too!
We all feel special when we have something new in the wardrobe to wear to a fancy occasion, and at this time of year – it’s vital! But with that comes the rigmarole of finding a frock that makes you feel like a million bucks, without spending a million bucks.
In this post, I’ve done some of the hard yards for you and found some great looks for less.

I do love a casual look, and leading into the weekend there is no better way to dress. I’m a sucker for comfortable, affordable fashion that you can freely live your life in. There can sometimes be a fine line between casual and sloppy and it’s easy on somedays to fall into the latter.
In this post you’ll find 3 different ways to wear a blazer, how to dress down tweed and how to toughen up the ever famous Little Black Dress. With just a little bit of extra thought into what you put on as your casual wear, you really can be comfortable and stylish all at once!

Off the shoulder – Not always practical while carrying children, but never the less its a chic way to carry your blazer without actually putting it on.
Sometimes I get stuck in a personal fashion rut. There I said it. It is so easy to stick to what I know and wear the same pair of jeans with the same tee and blazer over and over, till I purchase another pair jeans, a tee and blazer in a slightly different shade to what I already own…RUT. Being a mother has especially put me in the same old, same old category because, well…comfort!
Alas, in this post, I decided to put myself out of my fashion comfort zone and try a trend I have been watching for a while but have not yet tried – off the shoulder! I’m not sure why I haven’t bared all clavicle before, but when I came across this gorgeous Lucy McIntosh top from much loved shopping site Love Twain, I thought why not! I teamed it with another love of my life, STRIPES and voila – I was pulled from my rut instantly. I felt like I was ready for a European holiday!
I want to encourage you to try something you haven’t tried before and get yourself out of what you normally gravitate to. Even if you just try it on at the shops and not bring it home, it is a good way to open your mind to what might be out there for you. Choose a trend you really like but haven’t been bold enough to try and give it a go!
Enjoy the post! x
I can’t help it. Grey is my favourite. Anything grey and I’m sold. It’s neutral, it goes with everything, it’s non offensive, classic and you can wear it in any season.
