Style Saturdays – Watch this space

Daniel watch

Our little dude got a watch for Christmas from his Nanna and he insisted on wearing it everywhere. Daddy got one too, from Mummy. They both teamed up their new watches with blazers from Seed and Zara and I may be biased but I thought they looked quite the handsome duo!

Of course a monster truck is part of every outfit Daniel wears as he is always carrying one around – this time it was Northern Nightmare which was one of the presents he got from Santa for Christmas. He is so good at looking after his toys – he hasn’t lost one monster truck yet because he always seems to make sure that he puts them safe in the pram or in our bags when he’s out and about.

Saturday Style – Date night at the theatre

Saturday Style – Date night at the theatre

Every now and then we get to squeeze in a date night straight after work. On this occasion we went to see the King and I (see post here). We had a quick meal of steaming hot xiao long bao dumplings from Shanghai Street before we made it into the theatre ready to watch the show.

This comfy outfit I work to work transitioned easily into the night and was comfortable enough to wear throughout the entire day.

I wore:

a polka dot top with a bow at the back Zara

black fitted jacket from Topshop

Navy blue pants from Forever New (I love the fit of these so much I also bought them in black and orange!)

Heels from Myer (I remember I bought these around 10 years ago when I got a new role leading a team of 25 people! My feet were so sore the first day I wore them but as I broke them in they became easier to walk in and now are one of the more comfier heels I own!)

Longchamp handbag

We ducked out during intermission for some good coffee and a little browse of the cute little store next door, the Spring Street Grocer.

Baby Styling – Relaxed summer

 Styling Daniel – Relaxed summer baby

Before the scorching heatwave that hit Melbourne last week, Baby D enjoyed a nice, relaxing summer day visiting the ducks at the various parks walking distance from our house. Dressed in this comfy combo we enjoyed running after his furry friends, flying in the air on the swings in the playground and spending quality family time in the great outdoors.

Baby D has grown up so much over the past few months and it’s been such an amazing journey so far watching how much he is wanting to talk and communicate with us! He is starting to copy things we say and is developing his independence already. I can’t believe that just 12 months ago he was just a little baby needing to be carried everywhere and only eating breastmilk – now Baby D is eating anything and everything he can get his hands on from olives to anchovies and kare-kare goodness! He is totally loving this summer weather because he just gets so excited being outside. Ahhh the simple things 🙂 <3

Autumn Metallics – ootd

On our recent trip to Malaysia I spotted the skirt/shorts/skort in Zara at the Pavillion. I know this”skort” has played a starring role on so many other blogs but after trying it on, I had succumbed to it’s crisp, clean lines. It is comfortable yet sleek and works well with so many combinations! Teamed up with a slouchy jumper makes it wearable whilst carrying a crying baby who just refuses to stay in his pram.

A Perfect Fit – OOTD

Zara jumper, TopMan jeans and boots, H&M scarf. Mummy and son joining in on the action 😛 Baby wears Bonds jacket and bottoms, Converse booties, Carter’s striped onesie, H&M cardigan, Cotton On singlet, Supre jeans.

A good fit goes a long way. I love how these jeans are slim cut without looking like jeggings ;P and the fitted knit paired with a scarf gives off a nice put-together look. Comfy and smart casual.

Weekend Wear


Zara, jacket, H&M scarf, Zara knit, H&M dropcrotch pants, Michael Kors watch, thrifted sunnies

For the transition from summer to autumn and to help keep up with the infamous Melbourne weather, a scarf and drape jacket does the trick. Comfortable, unassuming and put together. Love this look that the better half wore last weekend when the sun shone, the rain fell and the wind blew all in one day.
