Fashion, What I Wore

Mother’s Day with my girls

12th May, 2018

I can’t believe it’s almost Mother’s Day again! I am so incredibly thankful to be a mum to two beautiful little girls. Sophia and Grace are both growing up way too fast (seriously where has the time gone?) but with each day it’s such a joy to see their little personalities coming through. They’re both so kind, caring and smart, and best of all as sisters, they couldn’t be any closer. I know most parents will probably agree but I can’t imagine what life was like without them.

For me, having daughters is a lot of fun. From tea parties to ballet classes to days spent at the park, I always have a ball when I’m with my girls. Being heavily into fashion I won’t deny that I also love being able to dress them up. Even at such a young age they’re already developing such strong opinions about what they like (Sophia would be in her Emma Wiggle costume everyday if she could!) and what they don’t like. It will be nice to see how this changes over the years and I’m sure I’ll lose half my wardrobe to them when they’re a bit older!

Every Mother’s Day I reflect on what the past year has brought and whilst we have our challenging days, I think every day with the girls is so enriching and in turn has made me a better person. It’s made me appreciate the little things. I can see how excited they are about the world around them, things that I probably would have taken for granted before. It reminds me of the sheer possibility of what lies ahead for them and it brings a smile to my face.

It’s a privilege to be able to guide Sophia and Grace through life. To show them what’s right and wrong. To raise them to be strong, confident, capable women who know their worth and won’t settle for anything less. I hope that I can be to them what my own mum is to me. My mum is my role model and a woman I look up to each and every day. If I come even remotely close to that I know I’ve done my job right as a mother.

To all the selfless, hardworking mums out there I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: All the Grey

31st March, 2018

I’m a huge fan of the colour grey. So chic, versatile and wearable—all the things I’m after when it comes to outfits that I wear when I’m in mum mode with Sophia and Grace. The wide leg pants formed the basis for this look and I decided that I wanted to keep the top in the same hue so opted for the high neck, frill sleeve top in grey marle. White sneakers seemed the perfect footwear choice given I was going to be running around after the girls. Along with being comfortable the colour was just the right pairing for the rest of my look.

When it came to Sophia’s outfit, I knew I wanted to work everything around the cute statement bomber with floral embroidery. The white winged tutu dress (yes, it has detachable wings!) was just the right whimsical piece to pair with it. Plus the dress features sequinned unicorns which Sophia particularly loved. And I’m already teaching my daughters the appeal of a statement shoe—in this instance super cute iridescent high tops.

Grace loves a tutu so I knew she’d be really into this outfit. I wanted to make the tutu a touch more casual so a marigold jumper and rabbit beanie complete with pom pom seemed the perfect complementary pieces. And what better finishing detail than gold bunny mary janes which frankly are just too cute for words.

What I Wore: Easter Time

24th March, 2018

I’m so looking forward to the Easter long weekend next week. I love being able to hang out with my family, especially Luke and the girls and just enjoy spending time together relaxing. And hey, it’s also a good excuse to enjoy an Easter egg or two!

It’s always nice to dress the girls up a bit during this time, especially when they’re off on an Easter egg hunt as it makes for such cute photos to look back on. I wanted to go all pink this year with the girls’ outfits and it was Seed Heritage to the rescue. They had so much pink to choose from that it was actually hard to narrow it down to just two looks. In the end I settled on the below ensembles as I love the cute bunny motif on Grace‘s dress and the pom poms on Sophia‘s jumper. Also it was pretty much mandatory that we incorporate a tutu in the mix.

As for my look, I thought red would make a great contrasting shade to the girls’ pink outfits. I’ve found grey is always such a good colour to pair with red so finding these jeans at Seed was a good find. Plus the outfit is so comfortable so it’s ideal for running after two excited and active little girls who have been enjoying a few chocolate eggs!
