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.

real mum style

Geelong Fashionista

This last week I hosted # real mum style, a hashtag made by the fabulous Bron from Flat Bum Mum to get mum’s to show off their everyday style. Not only for people to see individual style, give inspiration for outfits but most of all a great supportive network of women who love giving you self-esteem. It’s also where age has no boundaries and you can be a mum of any age to join in and show off our style.

I have been apart of this fabulous community since little miss was born. I was lucky enough to even meet some of the incredible Melbourne community a few weeks ago. Such a lovely bunch of women and some support, it was great to have a wine and talk all things mum.

There were some incredible outfits and I loved been able to comment, like and watch these mums wear current winter wardrobes. This depends on where in Australia you are from (or even further abroad) as to how rugged up you needed to be! You can pick the Melbournities!

There were lots of mum posting looks that I have been following for a long time as well as some new people I found and have since started to follow. To sum up my week I have put some of my favourite looks below. Go check out their pages.

life is crazy

Crazy Life

My life at the moment has been crazy! Between having something on just about every minute of the weekend to a crazy busy working week,  this blog of mine has been missing out.

I’ve tried to take the time to get a few words on the computer but even that has been a challenge and it upsets me as I love putting my time into this my brand and hoping to grow and really show you my readers my everyday style as well as what inspires me.

Today I bring you a look of which brought a day of shopping and doing some much-needed “me” errands as well as enjoying some time at home which is beginning to feel like a holiday house!

This skirt is from Mim and Bas and has been such a great staple for my maternity wardrobe. It’s comfortable around my growing baby bump, a great length as well as easily dressed up for work or worn for a casual weekend.

I’m currently 28 weeks, almost 29 on the home stretch which is very exciting!

Purple

I am so excited to say that I have become a brand rep for Mim and Bas. A beautiful maternity, nursing and beyond store with a love for fashion.

I was gifted with this purple and cream striped dress and I can already tell I’m going to live in it, not only during my pregnancy but after the baby comes to feed as adapts so well with the top easily coming away.

I still love trying to make an outfit different and still making myself feel like me, so I styled this outfit with my trusty fedora and boots, plus in the winter sun tights needed to be added.

These photos were taken in Perth in the beautiful winter sun, which was nice to not have to worry about a scarf or jacket to show off the purple colour!

rottnest island

Rottnest Isand

When looking at what to do in Perth, I was overwhelmed with the amount of people who said go to Rottnest Island.

We stayed with friends while in Perth and they too hadn’t made the trek across the water to check out the island.

We saw showers were forecast for the morning, but thought we’d still take the ferry ride. Note to self: always check the island’s weather forecast! It poured rain for pretty much the entire day!

We had hired bikes to explore the islands and figured we would still keep up the plan. Brooke and I went and found some rain ponchos and decided to give it a go and still ride around and embrace the rain as there was no sign of the rain easing. Through the rain it was still beautiful and I can see what everyone raves about this tourist attraction.

With the sun shining briefly we did get to stop and take a few shots and capture the island.

My hair was drenched, make-up washed away but it was a great day all the same. Might have to come back in the summertime.

exploring perth

Kings Park

Andrew and I decided we needed a break after a very big few months and have packed our bags and headed to Perth for a week of relaxation.

It was actually funny as we debated long and hard where to go and after lots of back and forth decided we hadn’t been to Perth, and having the added bonus of having friends here that we would come visit for a week.

While I plan on not doing much and relaxing (hopefully thawing out from the cold) I did want to explore and see some of the sights of Perth.

We headed to Kings Park as I’d heard some wonderful things; and people weren’t wrong. Beautiful City views of Perth CBD, the swan river plus plenty to see and do in the park. I really enjoyed exploring.

It was nice not to have a big coat on or even a scarf, although we did receive some rain but still it was great not to be cold! Still finding stripes are following me and I love showing off the bump now and embracing my changing shape. I guess now I’m over the halfway mark I am going to see lots of growth!!

winter sunshine

baby bump

What a beautiful winter day we had on Sunday. It was still cold but the sun was shinning and you need that this time of year to thaw out the bones!

I have reached the halfway mark with the bump and have now realised my wardrobe needs to be altered. The “stretchy” stuff is becoming my new best friend. Although I am excited to say that I can still do up my jeans! (yay for low risers ) but not sure how much longer that will last. Some of my favourite pieces are going to have to stay in my wardrobe and will entice me back in a few months time!

When I wear dark clothes I do try to pop some sort of colour with the outfit. Whether that be my coat, or a scarf and in this case was my trusty mustard beanie. Although the sun was shinning yesterday it was still crisp and the need for layers was a big requirement.

I still very much plan on keeping the fashion focus on the blog, however you will need to bear with me as I alter to maternity wear for a little while! I hope you don’t mind!

I’d love to hear your tips on maternity wear if you have any!

its getting cold outside

Kirsty

It’s started to get cold outside! Summer has left us and winter is coming quickly.

Time to layer, with the sun still trying to shine in the afternoons.

I’m still on my no tights until May with just over a week to go! But it is a struggle as the cold weather sets in.

I do love some of the amazing winter pieces around but I do hope it’s not a really cold winter…  7 months until summer!

I love navy and grey and I think I will be in these colours a lot of he next few months! Still bringing white and pink in for some pops.

colour pop weekend style

Geelong Fashionista

I love colour and this Elm Knitwear jumper is all about colour pop. The beautiful knitted fabric gives warmth while steering clear of the traditional Melbourne black. Although Winter has ended I’m looking forward to wearing this knit with shorts and skirts to still keep warm in the brisk spring evenings and mornings.

I love when winter ends and spring begins. There is excitement in the air that warmer days are coming. The weather was beautiful over the weekend and it really did feel like summer was on its way. People were all over the beach and enjoying living back outdoors which living by the beach does to you. I love walking down here and just staring out to the ocean.

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.
