Navy and tan

What is it about navy and tan that gets me so excited?! I love the combination of the two colours together especially as we come out of winter.

All of a sudden life has got really busy with so many things on. I’m not complaining they are all very exciting but it’s as if something goes winter is over lets move onto busy warmer months!

It also makes me see that I really need to find a solution to me time. Some time to be alone and really work out exactly what I want and how I’m going to achieve it. Here I was thinking I had so much help and support to get this off the ground and don’t get me wrong I do but what I would give for 3-4 hours of uninterrupted me time would be incredible. I’m my own worst enemy though as I can’t bear to spend much time away from the cute thing that we created and she makes me laugh so much and fills my heart with so much joy. I’m really struggling with this back to work thing I think and need to remember that money is a must!  Someone has to help my shopping addiction!

Fashion is going to get me through the transition! Outfit planning on a budget and wearing fun exciting pieces; maybe even a heel every now and then! What I am looking forward to, is getting back into more of a routine and been really organised . I love having structure and I think it will help me to find the time to sit at the computer and write. This will lead to the dream of one day becoming a professional blogger!!

I ask this question to fellow mums… Do you get enough “me” time?

spring is in the air

Spring is in the air
Khaki

The weather is warming, the flowers are blooming… YES!! spring is in the air.

I love spring as the surrounds start to change; flowers are blooming, days get warmer and longer and summer is that much closer.

It means you can use much more of your wardrobe. Jackets are needed but they are taken off during the day! Boots can be worn but so to can open toe shoes. So much choice and variety, a fun change up from the cold rugged up weather. I love getting more wear out of my clothes and its when I start to see the gaps in my wardrobe as well as what I need to start saving for!

These khaki pants are going to become one of my basics for my work wardrobe (work time is getting closer for me to go back). They are so comfy and feel like I’m in pajamas! I was kindly gifted them by Surafina and was happy to receive as I am loving khaki. I paired with stripes and my updated essential blazer to create this look.

White and black work so well with khaki and really do allow for so many different options to change up the look. It’s so important to me to have pieces that can be so versatile but still worn like a uniform.

What is you favourite work essential?

work life is looming

Work life is looming 
Back to work
Ok don’t panic! Going back to work after maternity leave is getting closer.
One second ago I was saying goodbye to my work, about to head off on my biggest adventure. Here I am about to return twelve months later.

Am I ready? Is this what I want to be doing?
Adult conversation is going to be great and I love using my brain for ideas, but I am really ready to get back to work life?

My days with little Miss are incredible and I love them! She has so much personality and is so much fun to be around but there are days when I would love some me time.

It really has been an adventure for me and all expectations changed very quickly about what the year would be like. I’m happy I took a year and lucky to have had the support from Andrew to do so but it’s also left me with wonder about where I see myself in five years time for my career.

I have wanted Geelong Fashionista to grow and flourish and lucky for me in the last two months it has! The opportunities it has allowed me to achieve have been amazing, but I think I need to really focus on what and where I see it going… I keep bringing this up. It comes down to how am I going to bring in a wage? I write because of the love of sharing my thoughts and style, and to be a career I would need to bring income. Don’t get me wrong the perks are great and I am so lucky at the opportunities but that doesn’t pay the mortgage!

At least I get to bring back out my work wardrobe and get to wear heels again! Take this incredible white blouse I was gifted from Surafina. It’s going to be a perfect staple for work. I love pieces that will match so much of my wardrobe plus looks great on. I love the cut and really can wear it any season.

What are your go to essentials for work?
