'Tis the Season…for awesome PJ's!

 

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! _MG_0372_FINAL

Tea with Jules…with fashion designer Steven Khalil

Steven Khalil is a house hold name when it comes to his wedding dress and red carpet designs. He has dressed the who’s who of the fashion and celebrity world and he’s not stopping there.

I have had the pleasure of working with Steven on many occasions, dressing my clients and even wearing his designs. He is a true creative. Not only is he a genius of the dress, he is an amazing human being. Sweet, kind and really knows how to make a girl feel like a million bucks.

You will love this episode of Tea with Jules with this gem, Steven Khalil.

Some Summer Essentials

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!

Dressing for the PARTY season

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.

Enjoy. x

Tea with Jules: Holly Russell, Senior Buyer at Net-A-Porter

Talk about best job in the world! Holly Russell is Senior Buyer at Net-A-Porter.com – so basically her job involves (among other things) travelling around the world watching fashion shows and meeting designers and then deciding what items the online fashion mecca will stock. Wow. For a moment I think I also had the second best job in the world, because I was invited to Qualia Resort as part of Audi Hamilton Island Race Week to have a cup of tea with Holly and talk shop. She was so lovely and I hope you’ll really enjoy this chat about what it takes to be a buyer, how to spot a fashion trend and of course your wardrobe must haves.   Enjoy! x

I stepped out of my fashion comfort zone

 

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

How to wear grey…and lots of it

 

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. IMG_2355

Rediscover colour! Spring into the Summer, bold and bright!

 

Colour. Sometimes you just have to do it and do it all the way I say. My favourite ‘colour’ to wear is grey…..I can safely say I am a recovering neutral addict, BUT in this post I have shaken myself up and hopped on a rainbow train to colour-town.

I can honestly say there is something to be said about what happens to your mood when you wear colour. It’s uplifting, joyful and can turn a gloomy day into a bright one.

Now, I’m not saying I’ve let go of grey on grey on grey, forever, but it’s definitely given me a few more options in the wardrobe.

Ways to wear Navy

I’ve always had a thing for navy. It has a level of sophistication about it and I always feel like a proper grown up when I wear it. I love that it can be chic and classic, cool, casual and right on trend. It’s an alternative to black but too much of a stand out colour.IMG_2813
