blue on blue on blue

You don’t have to wear a bright pink or orange hue to walk on the bright side.   A simple blue jean, a tee with a gentle print or a poppy heel is enough to lift my spirits and crate a diversion from my mostly monochromatic self.   I love colours that have reduced saturation.   Colour without the vibrancy.   Soft colour.   You get it?

Blue, purple and red sounds so brazen.   But smokey blue, lavender ice and carmine hit the nail on the head.   For me that is : )

bing badda boom

These Bings rock.   Perfect heel height, perfect width, perfect toe.   Perfect amount of gold hard wear with a winning stitched leather and suede combo.

Knit over shirt, leather and skinnies.   Winning combinations.   Can’t go wrong.

Needed a gold trim bag but couldn’t decide between the Chanel or the Zara.   I think the Zara wins in the end.

Short and sweet.   Big love.   Kisses xx

embellished

Dolled up much?  This is definitely about as sparkly as I get.   How could I resist this IRO skirt though.   With its thoughtful cut aways and embellishments upon pleats.   Hammered down with a metallic fleck, reminiscent of a silvery gold milky way.  Only ever so slightly hijacked by the Dylanex masterpiece I’m finding hard to take off.   Black lace ups to die for and a simple white blazer sky rocket this get up into the stratosphere.

It’s my birthday lunch on the weekend.   Outfit sorted.

kicking goals

I hope our son plays sport on Saturdays when he grows up.   If I end up being one of those soccer mums, this is what I’ll be wearing to cheer him on from the side lines.   Also suitable for a ballet mum as I’m already one of those.   New fashion predicaments, I like it!

I’m just loving comfort right now and these sleek Nike’s are doing the job.   I also feel more secure walking around with an 8 week old in hand, heels definitely need more brain space (which is what I’m lacking in at the moment!).

We just spent a week in Brisbane for the Ekka.   It was loads of fun and I find living in a hotel for a week can sometimes help the family re-group.   Baby was was sleeping well in the pram through the day so I think I’m going to continue this for a while.   The joys of getting a baby to sleep!

Did I tell you I took baby Jack to the Chiropractor?   I know, I know, some of you might be grimacing right now (my father was horrified) but it has definitely helped.   He was so miserable for a few weeks (as was the family) with awful reflux.   A good friend suggested baby Chiro and with the medication finally kicking in, he is much happier.   Even though I had a Cesarian, they had to use forceps…he was in a bad way poor little guy!   Anyway, I have to say… it was a pretty amazing experience.   He actually likes going for his treatment now, especially the part when he is swung upside down by his ankles.   Not kidding!

earthy tones

Without doubt one of my favourite colour palettes, these earthy tones make me feel like I’m at home.  Knits, suede, leather, heavy metals in grey, taupe and cream are a match made in heaven in my eyes and are bliss to wear.

I was so excited to receive my Dylanex necklace.   Well…it’s hardly a necklace, rather a hefty neck piece.   A statement piece.   A “wow factor” piece.   Now almost everything I wear needs this piece.   It even makes a simple white tee look phenomenal as often styled by the gorgeous founder and designer Drew Ginsberg.   Her look is super cool, you will have to check out her website.

Hope everyone is well and kisses to all xx
