Comfy and cosy in knit joggers

Comfy and cosy in knit joggers

It finally happened! We finally got some cool weather. As I type this my toes are cold AND I put a cardigan on. I mean, it’s pretty much peak winter over here. Haha. This was great news because I’d been sent (for free, to be clear) a bunch of new season clothing from a few brands and they’d been mocking me in the corner as I sweated my way through some unseasonable warmth. But my time has come.  Their time, I guess. On the weekend the knit joggers paired with their slouchy split side top and the white haven emporium patchwork cape. Let’s face it, the cape was a little optimistic, it wasn’t that cold, but it dressed up the outfit…

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…

Slouchy Sporty Casual for Winter

Slouchy Sporty Casual for Winter

Winter finally dipped a tentative toe into the waters that are my hometown this week. We even lit the fireplace a couple of times. Whoa. Progress. So when I took an early mark from work (post-holiday blues have hit me hard) Mr Suger and I decided to grab some dinner out and forget our grown up problems for a few hours. Because that’s what grown-ups do. With nothing to see at the local cinema and a cold evening settling in we settled for sushi at our local. And sushi always calls for the slouchy, stretchy goodness that is my current favourite. Excited to pull out some ‘cold weather’ gear I went straight for pleather leggings and a slouchy knit. The…

Casual Midi-Skirt, Sneakers and a Tank Top

Casual Midi-Skirt, Sneakers and a Tank Top

This grey skirt has been making the rounds on my Instagram lately. Mostly with a certain t-shirt with the F-bomb on the front. Which is pretty much my favourite tee of all time. So when I wore it again, with white this time, I thought why not post one more, man I love summer type outfit before we officially break out the boots for the year, yeah? But what these photos don’t tell you is that by the time it came to take them on our way out to get dinner I was annoyed. I was annoyed at life, at how hot the day had been, at my car for being dirty, and especially at Mr Suger who was entertaining himself…

Summer Double Denim Dreams

Summer Double Denim Dreams

This summer has been the summer of the double denim. Thanks to this skirt and a chambray tank, there has been very little else in high rotation over the past few months. You know, when I’m not wandering around my house in my swimmers because it’s a billion degrees of humid and I just couldn’t deal… I was thinking about the double denim challenge with the Aussie Curves girls. Who remembers when that was the thing? Every Monday morning my post would be ready and raring to go. That post is from 2014 and I was well and truly into my love affair with denim on denim, shades of denim on shades of denim by then. But it’s fun to…

Trying something a little different

Trying something a little different

When the fine folks at Boohoo offered me a few pieces from the new collection, it took me a little while to decide what I wanted. With an idea for an Australia Day post (that, whoops, never eventuated) I chose from red, white and blue sections of the websites. This top was something I came back to time and time again. Not really my style but I’d seen other plus bloggers wear the style, and I was curious enough to give it a go. You know me, I’ll try anything once. Even girly maxi dresses. Ha! When it arrived, I had big plans to throw it over some denim cut off shorts with my sneakers for some Australia Day festivities…

The outfit where I dress up like an extra from 90s TV

The outfit where I dress up like an extra from 90s TV

Well, like the title says, I feel like this outfit is a little bit dress up. Who from their 90’s childhood doesn’t remember overalls, overall-dresses and all that jazz? I know I do. So this is the outfit where I dress up like an extra from 90s TV. Haha. And you know the best part about it? I can. I can do what I want while wearing a size 22/24*. And the first time this look came around (in my lifetime) I couldn’t wear it. I was a 14/16 and that was the top end of the standard sizing. Throw in a long torso and well, I was up shit creek without an overall in site. And that’s the thing, right?…

Suger Tee Dress on Suger, look at that

Suger Tee Dress on Suger, look at that

*this post contains raving over a gifted item Heya team. I’ve devised a new strategy for getting more outfit photos on the blog more often. It’s this white wall. The light is always pretty good and it means Mr Suger and I go driving around less so we are more likely to actually do it. And we all remember the first Suger dress, right? When that happened I pretty much felt like I’d made it. As you do. Here was this really cool dress and it was named after me. Awesome. So when the team told me that they were reworking it and releasing it again. I was super excited. Suger 2.0. And it’s in black (like here even though…
