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!

Beanie Love

On a bad hair day I like to make life easy and add a beanie or a hat or even a headband. It is not only a quick fix but a look that is fun as well.

I have learnt that sometimes there isn’t time to wash your hair, even to do a proper hairstyle as you need to be out of the door. This is how this look went down. We had to be out of the house by 9 am and the beanie was the solution. Although I do love them anyway to stay warm in winter and they look so good!

I seem to be wearing four/five colours on a regular basis of late, but I still love adding a pop of colour. (even if that colour is one I have been living in) This jacket was a favourite I bought two seasons ago but love that it still works and brings some bright life to my otherwise dark outfit. I love when that happens. You spend good money on a jacket and it still keeps working in with everything you own.  That is why you make sure you invest in key pieces as they really will last through the seasons!

Flats…. they seem to have become my new obsession and who would have thought. I see other bloggers living in heels and don’t know how they do it sometimes running after little people and my bubba not even walking yet! I am loving the change-up and will never lose my love for heels, but will always be practical, especially  when walking around our beautiful town with my little family.

weekend stylin’ in khaki

Ocean Grove

I’m very lucky where I live in beautiful Ocean Grove; and one of my favourite things to do on the weekend is going for walks down our main street. This was a simple outfit I had on for the weekend, in a colour I never thought I would have a lot of! As I got dressed I remembered I had a khaki jacket in my wardrobe. I love when you find these pieces; it’s like buying mew clothes!

As we walked down the streets there were no cars, but as soon as we got the camera out they seemed to come in the dozens, not that it takes away from the images and Andrew had fun playing around with the end result.

I have been having a really good explore of local places,  and as we walked down the main street it’s such a mixture of new and old places, some that could do with a good face lift! Maybe that is what makes it so unique and keeps its small town charm.

footy time

 footy night

I went to my first match of footy (AFL – Australian Rules) for the season on the weekend. It was a beautiful Autumn day but I knew it would get cold as the night went on.

I like wearing something that is comfortable to watch the football but also something that I can still wear out for dinner beforehand. I think this worked perfectly!

These pants are my answer to everything! Heaven forbid if anything happened to them! So comfy, so stylish and they match everything!

the most wonderful colourful cape

Elm Knitwear Cape

When I received this most beautiful Elm Knitwear cape I got very exciting. The colours are beautiful and the fabric is amazing quality, and I knew we would get along fabulously! This particular day I had meetings at work and thought it was the perfect pop to my outfit.

Elm Knitwear has some amazing pieces and if you live in Geelong you can purchase from these following stores:

Have a wonderful Friday everyone!! Happy Valentine’s day to you all as well. I dont celebrate the day but happy to spread the love!

heels or flats

GeelongTony Bianco

I wore this outfit last weekend, to do a few bits and pieces; a coffee date, shopping and staying cool!
I felt like playing around with the look when I got Andrew to take a few snaps, and couldn’t decide on which shoes worked better.
The hair had gone curly from the beach, but I love the feeling of salty hair and enjoying sunshine! I really am a summer baby!

Heels or flats? What is your preference?

pastel colours ~ black out

I’ve gone for a much more subtle look today with pink, white and a touch of blue.

I realise I’m missing lipstick! I really need to start wearing it more and give my outfit that extra kick. I guess it’s because Andrew isn’t a huge fan of it, but I think this outfit would have looked much better with a pink lipstick.

I’m even more excited about seeing what the girls at work are wearing today. I’ve inspired them to go brighter, although they agree its difficult to leave black alone!
