Team Stripes in Casual Grey and Black

Team Stripes in Casual Grey and Black

This week I’ve been approached regarding three denim and jean launches, which is great news for my business, but maaaaan, it’s a billion degrees. And yes I know this is content for the cooler months to come, but I can’t help but think do I have to? Haha. It’s hot. And when it’s hot, you’ll find me in a casual summer dress. Every.  Single. Time.  Case in point, this awesomeness from 17 Sundays. They really do keep me in stripe heaven. The back of this dress HAS to be seen (there’s a photo below) and all in all, I’m in love. I’m wearing the Medium, though my normal size is the Large. You’ll see on the model the more relaxed…

My first outfit post of 2017!

My first outfit post of 2017!

Welcome back, ladies and gentleman. Here we are, and it’s already the end of January. Some fashion bloggers had their first outfit posts live on New Years Day. I envy those people; I used to be organised like them. Ahhh, the good old days. But enough of that lamenting the good old days, let’s get reacquainted. How are you!? How is 2017 treating you so far?  I’m doing well if I’m honest, coming down from this blah feeling I had in 2016 took some time. But I’ve bounced back well with some sunshine and lots of visits to the beach. I took the time to focus on what the heck I needed to let go of moving into 2017 and what it…

THE Grid Print dress (hello spring!)

THE Grid Print dress (hello spring!)

There are few items that have been so anticipated, the grid print dress from 17 Sundays is all kinds of a cult item already. We came, we saw it on the runway, we wanted it! Well, I certainly did. I jumped on the chance to own one and after much deliberation, I decided to order a size down from my usual size and get the medium. Ooooo, risky!  I love the slouch, I’m all about the slouch. But this dress I wanted to be short and sweet, I wanted spring chic and I knew long before it arrived that my nude shoes were the perfect match. So for those playing at home, I’m around 178cm and currently wear a 22/24 in…

How to wear sneakers with everything!

How to wear sneakers with everything!

Wearing sneakers with everything and anything is my thing. It used to be ankle boots, then somewhere along the way I decided that sneakers were fun and never took them off again. So when people kept landing on the blog asking ‘how to wear sneakers with this or that’ I decided it was time to answer the searching. Don’t you think? And sneakers can mean all sorts of styles from Converse to street style trainers to a more preppy style that looks like a loafer hybrid thing. Whatever your style sneakers are one of those items that every girl needs in her wardrobe. Because comfy. Haha. So let’s get the ball rolling, pull on your sneakers team. Sneakers and Dresses…

Winning in a simple white dress

Winning in a simple white dress

This little white dress, perfect for spring/summer, arrived just before I left for Melbourne and I optimistically put it in my bag. I always seem to bring the unseasonably warm days to Melbourne; maybe, this time, would be the same, and I’d need a warm weather option. It wasn’t. We had cool weather for once. Exciting! But that meant this dress never saw the light of day. It peeked longingly, but it was never to be. So home it came again and the moment finally arrived in the shape of Father’s Day dinner with the family. Easy to wear, only slightly risky given the presence of my adorable niece and nephews, and on a warm enough Sunday afternoon that it…

Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Big call on the headline there, don’t you think team? NEVER let me down. Like, ever. But the anti-fit jean came into my life with the first 17 Sundays release and it’s been my go-to style ever since. After decades of mot really knowing what shape I’d call myself, it turns out that my stomach absolutely pushes me into apple territory. And the anti-fit, well it’s an apple girls dream jean. Why!? Because the lean fit of the leg, the WIDE waistband, and the skinny, skinny ankle. Fits like a glove, let me tell you. And even if you are days before your period, have over-indulged, or skipped the gym for a few weeks giving you a little extra squish…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

There’s a frustration that comes from seeing an item of clothing on a blogger and not being able to buy it. I get that. BEEN THERE. But the thing is that my wardrobe is something I live out of, I wear the clothes I blog and sometimes there are items in that I purchased YEARS before. Because that’s reality, right? This blog isn’t about having the most up to the minute, new from the post items that the world-wide web has to offer. It’s about style, personal style and living your life the best you can. And let’s face it, plenty of people spend more than they can afford on such things, and that would never sit right with me.…

Work Style Slouch with Boots

Work Style Slouch with Boots

This year Winter took it’s time coming to my home town. I didn’t mind one bit, I was still on the beach and splashing about in pools until May, can’t argue with that. But then it arrived one weekend and blasted us with cold air and cooler nights, and I had to get Winter ready. And Winter ready meant boots, as discussed previously (boot weeeeek!). After that it was comfy, cosy layers to work in where attending is cold, but my office isn’t. My officemate LOVES the heater. I gag on hot, recirculated air. So we have to meet somewhere in the middle. So my clothes need to too. Enter, Coco. The 17 Sundays sports luxe incarnation of the slouch…
