Saturday Style – Monster suit playtime

Monster Suit Playtime with Mr D

This week’s Saturday Style post is a flashback from last May where a surprise party was organised for my brother by Her Lust Palette. It was held in the Gold Coast coast in an amazing two-storey rental and there was a whole group of us that flew up for the special celebration.

The weather in May on the Gold Coast was not too hot and not too cold and this onesie number we packed for Mr D was worn a lot! Great for running around and tumbling in, and an easy outfit for quick changes into swimwear for the beach.

This onesie has also doubled as a Halloween costume for Mr D’s Halloween Disco last year! He got it as a present – perfect for 1-2 year olds!

Matchy-matchy shoes with Daddy

Found these pics on my messy desktop and can’t believe they were taken exactly a year ago. One of my favourite things to do is watch the hubby playing around with our little one. They can go for hours running around or playing with cars with Mr D chattering away non-stop!

They wore:

-blue flannelette shirt from Pumpkin Patch
– printed tee from Target
– jeans from Cotton On Kids
– hi tops from Charlie & Me (these are so sturdy and easy to wear – Mr D has been wearing them for over a year now!)

– black jacket from FCUK
– tee from Zara
– jeans and shoes from Topman

Style Saturdays – Hoodies and jeans

Styling Daniel 

I love the simple combo of a warm cozy hoodie and jeans on our little one. It’s a perfect match for him to run around in during the cooler seasons yet still look comfortable and stylish enough to go out in with a nice pair of boots. This past winter I bought about three hoodies from Target and they were all so easy to pair and wear.

I love the bond these two have shared since Baby D used to kick Daddy from inside my tummy at three, four or even five in the morning! Daddy would come home from his dj club gigs in the wee hours of the morning  and as soon as he came through the bedroom door, my tummy would be poking to the side with Baby D would be in a flurry of action – as if to say “Hi Daddy, glad your home! Come play with me!

Two years later not only do they share a love for food, playtime and riding bikes, Daddy and Daniel seem to share the same sense of laid-back, casual but gorgeous style. Above is a pic of them in the summer months with their sunnies and shorts.

Daniel wears a t-shirt and sandals from Target, shorts from Zara and sunnies from Cotton On Kids.

Winter warmers OOTD

This photo was taken on Mothers Day 🙂 Even though it’s only autumn, Melbourne has truly embraced the cooler seasons with so many days already being cold enough to really rug up with not just layers, but thick layers.

Chunky winter knits and comfy boots are our pick f

or the winter months this year and here’s what the family and I are loving right now.

Master D wears:
– blue shirt and knitted sweater from H&M

Mummy Mondays – Junior Jamming

Deakin Edge, Fed Square Melbourne

Working full time means that weekends are the days we get to take baby D out for some fun in the park, at the shops, in the backyard or at music jams. This term we’ve been enjoying Saturday mornings at Mini Maestros and last month the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra had their own jam session. Held at the gorgeous, 0pen space at Deakin Edge, Fed Square, 7 musicians and an engaging conductor took the kids through a musical journey. Suites from Peer Gynt were beautifully played right in front of us with the little ones getting in on the act shaking, clapping and dinging their percussion pieces!

The kids learnt how to use their castanets, tambourines, maracas, bells and triangles at different volumes and tempos and even got to stomp loud and strong for the finale number. Afterwards, the kids had a meet and greet with the musicians.

Such elegant music live for us to hear and be part of. I definitely would recommend this to all parents as a must-do activity to share with their kids. It is a free program however places have booked up fast so check out MSO’s website to put your name down for the wait list and for future events next year.

Happy Days

Happy Days OOTD

Sunshine and the great outdoors. For the past few Sundays we’ve been enjoying time outside and the little one has been loving watching the birds, planes and helicopters fly past us up in the sky. He’s been loving playing with rocks and shouts out “DUCK” when he sees birds in the garden. Baby D also said his first three syllable word yesterday! – crocodile 🙂

Oh how fast they grow and I’m enjoying every minute of it. This week was a good week. Lots of naps, cuddles and play time. And a productive week work-wise, volunteer-wise and housework-wise 😉 One thing I do need to work on though is this blog. So many things coming up so hopefully I can get organised for you! In the meantime how was your week post-Easter? If you have a little one, what did he/she get up to this week?
