floral in spring… ground breaking

Florals in Spring…. ground breaking 
Floral Lami Saru

This is the week… The week I head back to work. I can not believe how quickly that has gone and how much I have gone on about it. (Sorry everyone)

On the positive side of things I’m looking forward to the adult conversations, wearing more of my wardrobe and getting into more of a routine.
I have so many clothes for work and it seems like such a shame not to wear, so I am pleased I get to wear them more.

Speaking of beautiful things to wear, how amazing is this floral dress. A beautiful floral number with pink undertones. I wanted to pick up on this and match the bright pink headpiece with pink pumps .

Add the Ocean Grove Main Street background and it makes for a great photo.

Every time I wear floral I think of Miranda Priestly from The Devil wears Prada; “floral in spring… groundbreaking”. It works for as such a beautiful spring look.

This particular outfit would be perfect for Oaks Day. Beautiful tones, shape and so feminine. Plus felt so good to wear.

 Fate Dress

Sometimes simple is all that is required. A straw hat, a pretty dress and some black heels.

I saw this dress, thought it was very pretty; and the moment I put it on I feel in love. I loved the way it felt on me and how incredible the cut and design was. Not to mention the colour.
I paired it with a simple boater hat, some black heels and the  look was complete.

This is the look I would like to wear to The Geelong Cup (our own race day; generally with a good insight into the winner of the Melbourne Cup!).
The look is simple yet elegant. I love a boater hat and it still works so well for spring racing as well as everyday wear.
The colour is so pretty and really works for this time of year.

There is usually a lot of press around the Geelong Cup in terms of the type of people who head to “country racing”.  I feel the people who dress well and behave well are overlooked and therefore get missed when a recap is done.
We have incredible boutiques that stock beautiful clothes and they need to be seen, in particular on days like this when we showcase off our beautiful city.

My only catch to attending the Geelong Cup will be that I would have only been back at work for a week… Is it a bit cheeky to ask for the day off? Some businesses get the day off work, but my workplace elects Melbourne Cup instead.  How I would love to show you images of the people who attend and some of the beautiful outfits.

october… spring racing is here

October
Butterfly Fascinator

I can not believe October is here! How did that happen? One minute ago I had a new-born baby next minute she is almost one!!
It means going back to work is nearing.. 11 days!! Plus to be honest Christmas is just around the corner! How did that happen??

I do love this time of year, with October bringing so much fun!
Daylight savings begins; (love me some extra daylight)
The weather starts to warm up (here hoping it does soon anyway);
Lots of fun events arise;
But most of all Spring Racing starts!

Spring racing brings many beautiful dresses, stylish yet comfortable shoes and the most incredible head wear. I LOVE hats, fascinators and anything that makes an outfit pop.
Discovering local incredible Geelong talent is a big love of mine, and I loved it when I stumbled upon Meg Fay Makes.
Together with amazing dresses from my local boutique Lami Saru in Ocean Grove, I have put together some really fun spring racing looks.

I didn’t go to spring racing last year as I was heavily pregnant and felt it would all be a bit much, I did some fun photos with my friends though, which you can go back and check!  This year it’s fun that I can get back into dresses and really play around with looks.

My first look worked better than I had hoped. I loved the beautiful floral dress and to complement it with the incredible butterfly headpiece worked a treat for me. It screamed spring and with the beautiful color palette of pink, white and mint I loved how this look came together.  I’m all for comfort on your feet as well (can’t be taking shoes off) and these pink pumps are like slippers!
