winter tones

Autumn leaves

Winter seems to attract dark colours, I guess the gloomy days attract darker colours and hence set winter tones.

I’m not saying it’s a bad think, I think these looks can be great but I do try to add some colour to a dark outfit where possible. Hence when shopping in my friends wardrobe (Thanks Nic; I was over my own!), I borrowed the most comfy of colourful flats and now have the urge (ok need!) to go get me a pair as I didn’t want to take them off my feet!  I didn’t think I was the laced-up-shoe kinda girl but how wrong I was! Another lesson that you should try something and it may pay off! I’m not saying buy it but do try before you reject the idea.

I also borrowed her beautiful leather jacket she got made in Bali (yes, now I too have to go to Bali and get one made!) and layered up a winter look with black and grey tones.

As a mum I really am looking for comfort these days. Something that allows me to easily adapt for my little girl, whether that is going for a walk, out for coffee, playing on the floor or even heading to a play centre with other mummies and babies I want to feel like I can do anything in my outfits.

This look did all the above, plus adding a few touches, like earring, necklace and a nice clutch; I can leave little miss at home and go and enjoy me time as well!

the traveling bag

Sash and Belle

Have you ever seen the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”? Well that is how this post all started!

Instead of pants, this Sash and Belle bag traveled from Queensland, to New South Wales then to Victoria getting styled by three different ladies, all with different styles.  The traveling bag!
In Queensland it started with Mica from Away from the Blue. It then continued to NSW stopping at Allison’s from Sydney Fashion Hunter, and finished with me here in Victoria.

We all agreed the bag was exactly what we all wanted and so it traveled the east coast to create stories with us all.

For me this bag is the perfect size for where I am in my life right now. I haven’t been using handbags as the nappy bag has become my go to bag, however when I do get five minutes alone I have discovered I need something small and this worked a treat! Plus its very on trend at the moment and helps pop my outfit.

My style has changed in the last few months with not working and looking at comfort. This bag gave that perfect bit of character with my otherwise plain outfit.
