What I Wore: Relaxed Casual

28th June, 2016

 This jersey ASOS shift dress has been a go-to for me during my pregnancy. Anything stretchy is esssential to accommodate a growing bump and it’s also super comfortable which is all I really want in anything I’m wearing the further along I get in my pregnancy. Grey marle has always been a reliable neutral for me as it goes with virtually everything which makes pulling together an outfit even easier. I’ve teamed it with a pastel Karen Millen leather jacket to add a pop of colour to the look and I’ve found metallic brogues perfectly offsets both pink and grey hues. These playful Karen Walker sunglasses are one of my faves and definitely makes a statement and the touch of pink picks up the pastel in the leather jacket. The Ralph Lauren Ricky bag is great as it leaves my hands free when I’m running errands and trying to get a million things done before the bub arrives!

The winter staple your wardrobe needs

20th April, 2016

As we move into the cooler autumn weather and into winter you’ll soon find that the blazer will be an all important style staple to get you through the next few months. A great black blazer is a constant in my wardrobe and easily pulls together a look. Plus the hue is versatile and timeless so it’s easy to get plenty of wear out of it and also have it for seasons to come.

A great relaxed fit blazer like the one above by Chloe is the ideal cut to take you from work to the weekend. Team it with a structured bag a la the Givenchy Antigona and statement accessories like the above Karen Walker sunglasses and you’ve got yourself an eternally chic look. A single breasted jacket is always a safe bet, however if you’re after something slightly different try a double breasted option or look for interesting finishing touches such as gold buttons or a flared sleeve.

There are so many great blazers out this season. If you’re looking for an investment piece my favourite designer picks are the “Phoenix” by Bec & Bridge , this one by Rag and Bone, the “Boss Lady” by Bec & Bridge, plus this one by Dion Lee and this double breasted option                   by Camilla and Marc

If you’re after a more budget conscious buy there are plenty of great options out there. The first and second looks are from Lavish Alice on ASOS and The Iconic also has another great look for $89.95!

Shop the look: Backpacks

2nd March, 2016

The backpack has certainly come a long way from the kind I used to use to carry all my books to school! These days the backpack is super stylish, often comes in a great colour palette and and has the right amount of understated detailing to make it a classic piece for years to come. I have been glued to my Scanlan Theodore backpack for awhile now simply because it makes it so easy to carry all my essentials when I’m out and about (it’s especially perfect for when I’m shopping as it leaves both my hands free to browse through the racks). Here are some of my tops picks if you’re looking to add a backpack to your bag collection, I promise you’ll never look back…

 

STYLE

 

STEALS (under $120!!)

 

Style (clockwise from left):

See by Chloe Vicki backpack

The tassels on this bag set it apart from your usual, garden variety backpack. It’s also quite roomy which means it’s perfect to take with you when you’re travelling.

The Row 9 pebbled leather backpack 

Made from luxe pebbled leather, this backpack is taken next level with the gold hardware. I love that you can carry it on your back but also use the top handle to carry it more like a traditional handbag.

Rag & Bone Mini Pilot backpack

Rag & Bone do some gorgeous utilitarian pieces with a sophisticated touch and they’ve taken this bag into definite grown up territory with the streamlined, understated design.

Alexander Wang Prisma Skeletal backpack

Straight from Alexander Wang’s popular ‘Prisma’ range, I love the rose gold hardware and super soft textured leather on this particular bag.

 

Steal (clockwise from left):

Eyelet backpack

For a more inexpensive option, this backpack from ASOS is a bargain at only $68!

Structured pocket backpack

This offers plenty of space to carry your essentials (and more!) plus it’s quite a simple design which makes it easier to mix and match with different outfits.

Suede and Leather backpack

Not liking the traditional backpack style? This roll top bag is ideal for those who are after something a little quirkier.

 

 

 

Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: All white

3rd February, 2015

I love how an all white outfit can look so clean and fresh. I teamed a pair of white ASOS jeans with an Isabel Marant t-shirt and SABA jacket and worked it back with nude Celine heels and a nice roomy Jacki Anderson bag which I tend to use whenever I travel as it holds everything I need. An all white outfit is so versatile – I’d wear this to work during the day or team it with sandals over the weekend. White gives you a clean base so you can do anything with your accessories, though I think it’s a good idea to break it up with black or with a bit of colour. It’s also about layering pieces and working with different textures. I think the white on white trend is here to stay.

5 things I couldn’t live without during my pregnancy

5th January, 2015

slide3

As most mums know it’s an interesting ride ahead when you’re expecting. I couldn’t imagine life without Sophia now, but the lead up to having her was definitely a learning experience. Each expectant mum picks up a survival trick or two along the way, and this is what I couldn’t live without during my pregnancy

Bio Oil
People in my family are quite prone to stretch marks so I was quite cautious with that from the very beginning and applied Bio Oil on my skin daily.

Gentle exercise
I wanted to stay active whilst pregnant so I continued doing Pilates throughout my pregnancy. I also did lots of long walks on the beach to get some exercise plus it’s not bad for relaxation too.

ASOS
I shopped ASOS a few times to stock up on maternity basics. They have a really good pregnancy section so I bought a lot of pieces from them, plus online shopping is just so much more convenient when you’re pregnant.

Fish Oil
I found I was quite low in iron so to get an iron boost I took fish oil tablets.

Morning juices
I made/drank a lot of juices during my pregnancy. I was really cautious of getting getting the right vitamins and minerals and having the right amount of fruit and veg so I would have a juice in the morning. I’d just mix up whatever fruit and veg I had in the fridge and I also made sure to add a lot of superfoods such as kale into my juices to maximise the nutrients I was getting. If you’re constantly on the go throughout the day, it’s great to get a good dose of fruit and veg first thing in the morning.
