laneways of melbourne

Melbourne

I love exploring Melbourne, especially when you come across the random laneways and amazing graffiti.
This particular laneway was fascinating, it had shoes all different colours as decoration hanging above from wall to wall.

The weather of late has been beautiful, with glorious autumn days here in Geelong and Melbourne. It’s a bit unexpected really as it had started to get quite cold!
Hence I have pulled out the boots but am still wearing skirts in this sunny weather.

This skirt was such a fun find; it’s quilted and I think will be versatile for winter with some tights underneath… (or maybe I need to add over the knee boots onto my want list! )
It’s navy and the colour has become a big staple colour in my wardrobe! My mummy style has made me think about purchases a lot, so I’m tending to stick to very neutral colours and navy is a neutral in my book!

I seem to be living in this jumper! I love that it works with anything I have on plus it’s not thick so perfect for this autumn weather.

In mummy news… it’s nearly mothers day and I have a gift guide coming with some great hints to buy your mum/wife/partner! Make sure you keep your eyes out for that!

i forgot i had that….

grey vest

I love it when you find a look on  Instagram or Pinterest and think, ‘I could do something similar, I forgot I had that!’

Or more to the point I forgot I bought that last season (when I had a big baby belly! 😉 ) let’s get it back out of the wardrobe.

That is exactly how this outfit happened! I saw a picture on Instagram last week of a lady in a long grey vest with black jeans and remembered I too had a long grey vest that I could wear! (It’s like shopping without spending money, I tell you!!) It was time to whip it out and experiment with a look.

Luckily the autumn weather has been not to cold yet so I was able to try something I wouldn’t normally. (Like I have said before, my style has changed since becoming a mum!)

A Saturday staple for me has always been jeans and a white tee (I always think of the Lana Del Ray song Blue Jeans when I say that) sorry back on track… I grabbed my new favourite colour grey vest and added it to my jeans and tee and was pretty happy with how the look turned out! I was then able to enjoy the beautiful sunny autumn day.

autumn is upon us

Geelong FAshionista

Autumn is upon us, summer has passed for another few months and boy am I going to miss it!
Hopefully the weather still stays alright for a little while so I can still head out for walks with little miss. But the cold is now in the air.
Days usually can stay ok but nights are chilly and noticing even more having to get up to feed!

Two of my favourite colours right now are  grey and white. It feels so fresh and takes away from a gloomy days, (I hate saying bye to summer so this keeps me happy with cold weather looming.)
I am loving putting together basics for my mummy days, especially when I’m not sure what I’m doing and that is exactly what this look was about. Comfortable pants and a warm jumper that can be dressed up if needed, or just simple for a quick coffee too.

The jumper was a great find from Witchery. It’s warm, perfect for winter and has the fun pirate detail at the front. I loved the colour and know it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!

let there be sun

Weekend Edit

Sometimes I wonder why I live in the cold… Ok it’s not like Canada cold where I have lived, but we don’t have snow, therefore I say it’s yucky cold weather!

Last weekend we headed to sunny Queensland to visit my grandparents. Now I say sunny Queensland as we experienced 25 degrees for the four days; the sun was shinning and it was amazing! Much better than this cold top of 13 we’ve had here in Geelong.

We headed down to Byron Bay one day to have a look around and I got Andrew to capture some photos. FINALLY I know!!! I have been missing in action. Work has been crazy and I have been snowed under… I need to develop a plan to cut back my work life so I can focus on this blog I love so much… and something may be in the works…. I am trying to give Geelong Fashionista the love and devotion it needs!

I love this white dress for an everyday look and it was perfect for a lovely family lunch and explore! Perfect with my Senso sandals which have done me so well! A great purchase right there!

white out

bring on summer

As the weather warms I love seeing all the white around… I think I’ll be wearing a lot this summer as it’s so fresh and fun!

From wearing as the statement piece to making other pieces pop, it’s the perfect neutral. Not only for personal style but it works so well in the home as well. I use a lot of white as a base colour.

I’m still am looking for the perfect white shirt (I’m so fussy!) but have realise I do have a lot of white pieces to get me through the spring/summer season. I also debating a pair of cons after seeing this top image, and how cute my cousin looked when we did our fun shoot. (here)

Although white can be a colour that gets dirty so very easily its one look I think makes everyone look fresh and fun ready for the sunshine; especially with a tan! 😉
