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!

Saturday Style – Matchy-matchy with my little man
It was a last minute decision to go along with the family to Buxton Trout Farm and with a long drive and day ahead of us, Mr D and I got dressed into our comfy new stripey tees! Armed with suncreen, caps and sunnies we had a great day out and loved running around playing with our cousins.

316 Maroondah Highway, Healesville
On the way home from the trout farm we stopped by Beechworth Bakery in Healesville for a light dinner – we were so full from all the fresh fish we ate!
They were closing up and we were lucky to get there just in time to order some pies, coffee and cakes. I ordered a beesting, a Beechworth pie and some peppermint tea. The pie was ok but the beesting was delish! I took one home for the sick hubby as a treat 🙂
The cafe was spacious and even had an outdoor area around the back with some picnic tables and benches. There were couches inside next to a couple of fireplaces and high chairs available for those needing them. I’d like to visit the original one in Beechworth that was established in 1984.
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.
D loves his fruits!
Trying to do the peace sign lol!

Junior Jamming with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
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.
Daniel having a play with the french horn
We had a nice chat with the oboe player and even found out that this instrument cost her around fifty to sixty thousand dollars!
Daniel got startled by how loud the flute was able to be played!
We were shown how the snare drum worked
Out of all the things Daniel could’ve picked up, he chose the eggs!
Outfit of the day:
– beanie from Fred Bare Kids
– Bear jumper and skinny leg jeans by Target
– blue cardigan from Myer
– moccasins by Freshly Picked
