Weekly Lust Have’s # 2

This week we were scouring the racks at Seed Heritage and found some absolute beauties. We have nailed it down to our top three.

Cocoon Frill Dress – totally loving this dress, it is very cute and being black you will can and will wear it for all occasions. This dress will look like perfection with some strappy heels for an cocktail event, but will also look super cute with some flat lace up sandals on a nice warm night. Just add a cute clutch, some earrings a cuff  – and your off.

Our next pick is also another dress, this one is a lot more casual but this dress will get a lot of wear over the summer months. The lace up striped dress has a tie up front detail to add a little something extra.The tee shirt dress is on our wardrobe staple list meaning it is a “must have” for all. This style of dress is easy to wear and perfect for the beach, casual weekend running around and catch up’s. Wear it with sandals or a pair of havaianas, place a fedora on your head and your ready.

Next up we chose the Denim Cap – as I need a new one. I was after a leather cap, but came across this one and thought it would be much more practical and would go with more. It will be easy to sun smart and safe with this little beauty.

Weekly Lust Have’s

We thought we would introduce a new weekly post, which is all about items we are lusting over from some of our favorite stores.

This week we went into one of our all time favorites, Witchery. It is seriously my go to store, it doesn’t matter what I need or for what occasion I need something…. (or no occasion at all) this is the store where Ill find what I am looking for and is always the first store I go to.

First up is the mid tan heel – this shoe is so cute. It is going to be seen everywhere, all the stores have a similar version. I love this one as the strap in singular, as I am not a fan of cross straps and the shoe is suede.  The heel height is perfect for spring / summer, it is stylish and comfortable for day or night. Team with jeans and cute white blouse and you will just scream summer!

Next up is the cute little white gathered top – Witchery are stating “Loaded with versatility but equally decorative, the Gathered Top will easily take you from the boardroom to bar. The sleek design is rendered with a deep v-front and elasticised waistband with frill details for an ultimately feminine finish“. I am totally agreeing with that, this top is so cute and we think that the semi peplum look adds / or hides any tummy issues you maybe having.

Lastly we are loving the cute crossbody bag. I have my eye on the Chanel Wallet on a Chain (which is just a tad out of my price range) so I have been trying to find something that I would be happy to wear, which looks classy and is functional. With its tan and natural finish this bag is perfect for all outfit colour combos palettes and occasions.This cute little bag ticks all my boxes.

These 3 items should start getting you a little more excited about the future summer days and nights that are slowly making their way too us. Check back next week to see what we are lusting over! xx

Being a sports mum

Is hard work! Both my boys play sport and we have training on most week nights and then games on the weekend. I am constantly on the hunt for easy,casual, comfortable but stylish clothes and outfits to wear. I love plain t-shirts, jeans, sneakers or flats and a cardi – this usually works well and is easy enough to change the look of with a different scarf, cardigan or another accessory. I have been eyeing off some harem pants from Seed, but not sure if I am ready to give them a go. Come winter cold raining mornings…..ill be honest – i do just wear track pants, a jacket and sneakers….some mornings are just too hard. I would love to hear about what you guys wear for all the kids extra curriculum activities.

White Out

Crisp and fresh – no colour screams Summer more than White! Your most probably thinking No I can’t wear white, I have grubby kids. That’s ok there are many choices, you don’t have to wear white on white (though I love the thought of it), you could try a white blazer, a white tee, white dress or even better white pants / jeans.

A few rules to follow when considering wearing white:

  • Don’t wear a white dress to a wedding, I don’t care what anyone says it’s a big No No.
  • Make sure your white dress is not see through.
  • Don’t wear a white bra or undies, make them nude or skin tone – they don’t show through as much.
  • Also if your going with the white pants or jeans go up a size, you don’t want them too snug as they say white has the opposite effect to black……

Get some colour to your skin and add some colour popping accessories and your good to go! Enjoy xx

Attention : Military Trend has arrived

We are starting to see the olive & khaki greens in the shops leading up to Autumn. The military style is always on repeat and never really dates. So what ever pieces you already have or will buy are going to be value per wear. I have a khaki jacket that I bought from Witchery 4 winters ago, it will be seeing the daylight again real soon. This season we are going to see everything from silk shirts to distressed cotton & silk pants, as long as the faithful cargo pants & jackets.

Golden tones in your accessories work well this the khaki & olive green as does black. Usually a very masculine look, its nice to play on the accessories to soften the look up. The perfect shoe is any style in black, tan or a  leopard print, which always looks HOT! So our wardrobe woes &  outfit dilemmas are solved as there will be something for everyone for work and the weekend.

Leopard Print, the neutral

There are so many options of wearing this feline enhanced pattern. From throwing on a leopard print scarf with a black or white shirt, leopard print heels or flats with your favourite jeans or pants. It really has become a go to, a neutral just like black, white, grey and my other neutral stripes. We love leopard print because it make a plain outfit something special – adds a little style.
If you can’t handle the heat of something so bold as a shirt or skirt, there are so many options of leopard print accessories like bags, clutches, earrings and bangles. Leopard print works well with almost everything, it also really loves pops of colour. Either add a coloured knit or statement necklace to really make it meow!
