summer chic

Fast becoming one of my favourite labels, this voluminous soft cotton voile dress by Enza Costa has been a recent wardrobe staple.   If it’s a little longer than you would like, try hitching it up – it’s a cute look and nice to show a bit of leg.

This is pure easy dressing at it’s best.   Throw a printed blazer over your dress for a touch of chic, add some summer sandals and matching accessories and voila!

black & white

To be sure, to be sure…    You can simply do no wrong in black and white. Staples through my second pregnancy and last post of the belly, I promise!

Chic white blazer, skinny jeans and a black tee.   With of course my new flash accessories…shiny new leather loafers and a medium brimmed felt fedora.   With some nude accents to lighten the load. Lush I say.

Did we discuss the new hair?    Loving the recent chop I had done at Oscar Oscar Salon pre baby.   Feel so much lighter, in more ways than one.

I did my first shoot yesterday (2.5 weeks after my caesarean, just managed!)   so have some new cute outfits coming up.   Now to find some time to edit them!

cardi coat

Hi all, how is everyone?   Wow, what a whirlwind the last two weeks has been.

We now have a beautiful baby boy named Jack to add to our brood and as expected the household has certainly been interesting with a toddler as well.   I’m living in a baby coma right now…feeding around the clock, trying to recover, looking after Addie and trying to get some sleep in between. Hubby has been amazing as usual though and helps out so much.

Addison was born naturally and due to two factors, a Caesarean was decided by our Doctors for our second. Firstly, the natural was extremely traumatic (Addie was 9 pounds and I’m not a big girl).   Secondly, I developed a pain condition from an injury two years ago and there was risk of a pain transfer if not managed properly post surgery.

I have to say, my C Section experience was awful!   All my friends told me it wasn’t so bad but it’s major abdominal surgery and 12 days later, am only just starting to find it easier to get up and down.   Not to mention they had to re do the spinal half way through cutting me open because I could feel it – I’m not joking.

That being said, we have a healthy baby boy who was 3.94kgs at birth and that’s all we can ask for.   So blessed and really starting to feel like a family now with the four of us.

We shot this outfit a few days before baby arrived.   I was chasing some loose tees to hide my belly and came across this awesome cardi coat from Sportsgirl. I was fifteen the last time I had a shop up at Sportsgirl and as usual, you can always find some great pieces.

I’m loving casual dressing at the moment for obvious reasons and this outfit ticks all those boxes. I dare say it will be casual for a few weeks longer!

Love to all xx

shades of grey

I am pretty sure this is going to be one of the last posts I do before baby arrives.  I can’t wait for you to meet him and will post a picture of him as soon as I can.

This little outfit was great for the other day when it was a touch cooler on the coast.   I’ve been wearing this over sized denim shirt a lot through this pregnancy as it’s so long.   A baby blue knit over the top of denim is always a good idea and as for the coat over the shoulders, it completes an outfit for me.

I jumped on the “Mule” bandwagon a while ago and I have to say this soft calfskin pair by Balenciaga have been heaven to wear.   They are so soft and the perfect heel height.   They work well with the ultimate in leather pants and are surprisingly comfortable despite my current predicament.

Love to all xx
