Here's what I wore to travel to Melbourne and explore the city today:
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress in black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque flats in camel
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown from Reebonz


It was supposed to be warm and sunny in Melbourne today, so a dress seemed like a nice idea to be comfortable for the flight down and for walking around the city. I ended up having to wear my jacket as well as it was a bit chilly, although it warmed up and I could put my scarf away after lunch.

Spent some time today walking around, catching trams, having absolutely delicious cupcakes with amazing company and visiting the usual tourist spots - I will try to put some photos up on my facebook page if you want to see. Had to take this quick one in the hotel's rooftop garden as I didn't have any other head to toe shots.


Last worn: Zara jacket, printed dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs flats, Marc Jacobs Fran bag.


I'm excited to attend my first Melbourne Reebonz offline sale tomorrow! Hope you can join me!

Red Asos Dress With Blue, Marco Tagliaferri Bag | Zara Printed Dress Worn As Top, RM Mini MAB

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:

Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
Necklace: Chanel necklace layered with Dogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace
DressAsos tulip skirt dress in red
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
Bag: Marco Tagliaferri first generation Birk bag in navy


Wasn't 100% sure this was the best jacket to wear with the dress, as it does have a very tulip shaped skirt and I don't think the blazer hits it at a very flattering point. It did keep me warm with the cool morning though, so I was happy. :)

Linking up with Spotlight Weekly, Three-fer Thursday, What I Wore To Work, Fashion Informant today.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Kate Spade skinny mini bow bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Have been wanting to wear this dress as a top for a while. Figured that now was the best time to wear it, before the weather gets too warm! Have had a few cooler weather outfits planned in my head for a while despite the heat, as I was due to fly overseas for work on Saturday, to a cold climate. I'm unfortunately no longer travelling as planned. I know if the chance comes up again though, I've got my outfits planned and my suitcase all packed in my head, ready to go, haha!


Lots of people have been asking about my mini MAB on youtube, so I made a short review and 'what's in my bag' video.

This jacket was perfect one to keep me warm yet show off my new bracelet with the cropped sleeves, so it was the obvious choice to wear :)

Interesting day today! Spent the day relaxing before heading into the office. Scheduled this post as I'm going into the office to work this evening. We get to wear casual clothes, so my awesome Church Online tee gets an outing. One of the many perks for volunteering at Church Online, they keep my tee collection growing :) Took a different detail shot today to show off the back.

The project I've been working on for over a year is going live this weekend, and that's why we are working. I'm extremely excited, so working on a Saturday night doesn't seem so bad. My favourite team members will be there in the office too. Wish us luck! :)

A nice relaxing Saturday today, so nothing too fancy. Had to wear a jacket as it was a bit chilly and overcast so I built my outfit around that. Decided to add some pink accessories - what else! - for a bit of colour. Didn't have to carry much so a clutch was perfect and fit everything I needed. Hope you had a great weekend :)

Spring and Summer Denim Outfits: Shorts and Skinny Jeans

Two denim outfits - a Spring-y one with layers, and a summer-like one with denim shorts. The heat shot up suddenly here in Queensland, giving us a taste of the hot summer to come!


Here's what I wore to go pick up our new car:
zara tweed blazer peach cami skinny denim jeans spring layers
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace layered with vintage gold initial necklace
DressJeanswest peach ruffle cami
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


You might remember me on the blog a while back (while I was still pregnant!) talking about going car shopping. We eventually found the perfect car and placed an order shortly before baby T arrived. There was a mix-up at the dealership unfortunately, so there was a bit of a delay. It's been a long wait, and after lots of updates from a very apologetic sales guy, we finally have the car we wanted with all the bells and whistles and safety things for baby! So exciting! My favourite part is that it has little air conditioning vents in the back - perfect for keeping baby and Cooper cool on a hot day.

Wanted to look a little dressed up for going to the dealership so added the tweed cardi over the top of the casual jeans and cami outfit. I wore the outfit without the jacket when I went out that morning with baby, but we picked the car up in the evening when a light jacket was helpful.

This cami top is one I got from my sister as part of her wardrobe clear out. Such a great piece, I'm glad she didn't want it any more.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Zara cardi, skinny jeans, Havaianas, Marc By Marc Jacobs baby bag. First time I've worn the top.




Here's what I wore to try to avoid melting:
Stripe tank denim shorts Havaianas summer style
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Singlet: Cotton On stripe sailor tank in dusky green / grey marle
ShortsJeanswest denim cuff shorts
ShoesHavaianas tropical print thongs


Such a hot day when I wore this! Defintely no need for an extra layer. I honestly felt like I was melting, and baby T had a hard time coping! Out of nowhere the Spring weather took a turn and treated us to a little bit of summer heat. Was quite a shock to the system for me, and a bit of an upset for baby T, poor little man has never felt such heat in his life. I had to venture outside to the post office, so wanted to wear as few clothes as possible to do so, yet still look decent. A light-weight tank and denim shorts was good to try keep cool, and for lounging around at home afterwards trying to cool down again. It was not as cool in the morning as I hoped it would be, but at least we were back home before the real heat of the day. I wasn't up for standing out in the sun again just for a picture, so stayed inside the house to take this, haha!

I've only worn this tank once before, over a year ago. I do recall trying to wear it in pregnancy, but the baby bump had outgrown it when I tried. I don't really wear green a lot in my wardrobe, which might be another reason it hasn't been worn much. I did enjoy wearing it this time though, so it's staying in my wardrobe for now, and I'll make more of an effort to wear it over the warmer months to justify keeping it. I have quite a few pieces like this in my wardrobe - great sale bargains I just had to have...which don't end up getting worn much at all. I need to keep this in mind when I shop the sales racks in future!


Last worn: Wayfarers (see above), stripe tank, denim shorts, Havaianas.

37 Weeks Pregnant: Easy Autumn Maxi Skirt Outfits. Grey, Stripes, Marc Jacobs Red Ukita Bag

Here's what I wore on Monday:
third trimester grey black white stripes maxi skirt bright red bag outfit

mbmj lil ukita handbag worn cross body
NecklaceDogeared silver wishbone necklace
TopJeanswest 'Marion' grey textured crew neck knit (new purchase)
SkirtTarget black and white striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


This top is one I ordered from the Jeanswest sale a while back for 40% off, I just had to take it to the tailor to have the sleeves shortened a bit. I like it with the sleeves rolled up a little, but the original sleeves were much too long and it just created a lot of bulk.

It's a nice light knit that kept me cosy on Monday as I had a browse in the local op-shops (thrift stores). Found some great blazers. Can't button them with the baby bump in the way - I don't actually think I have anything I can button over the bump now - but they should hopefully button up after baby's arrival.


Last worn: stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag. First time I've worn the top as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:

Singlet: Glassons striped tank in black and white
SkirtTarget grey marle maxi skirt

BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


Another maxi skirt outfit! I'm starting to really see the pregnancy 'uniform' coming out now I don't have to worry about dressing professionally for work. In this last month of pregnancy, comfort wins every time.

Did try to add a bit of interest by wearing a striped top with the tweed blazer, but it's still that fitted top and maxi skirt combo I've been wearing so often. Had lunch with my mum today and attended another check-up for baby, so this was a nice comfy outfit. Didn't realise it was the inverse of yesterday's outfit (grey on the bottom, black and white stripes on top this time) until I was uploading the photos! I've been wearing a lot of grey lately. There may be more grey than blue in my wardrobe now!

Balenciaga Blue Day Bag. Zara Blazer, Grey Tee, Asos Pencil Skirt | Pink Blush Maternity Dress, Leopard Print Scarf

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:

Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
TeeSpectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtAsos graphic print pencil skirt - on sale! (maternity version here)
Shoes: Wittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga coated stud wrap bracelet in icy blue
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


Grey tee and pencil skirt for a nice easy work outfit. Added the cosy jacket to keep me warm in the morning, as it's starting to get a little chilly. I think it dressed up the tee and skirt combination nicely too. And because I'm still feeling unimaginative with wardrobe options, my Balenciaga day bag again, haha! It's great that this bag goes with so much, as I'm wearing it with everything!

Think the photo doesn't do this outfit justice - I felt really great in this, but I was in a bit of a rush taking photos.

BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Simple dress for work. I love how easy maternity dresses are to wear! Wanted to be warm so added a big cosy scarf. Almost disguises the baby bump.

Wasn't too sure about the burgundy and blue together at first, but I think it looked okay in the end. What do you think?

BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun


Kept everything fairly neutral after my bright monochrome orange outfit on Wednesday! Wearing the last of my new purchases from my DFO Spring accessories shopping trip on the weekend, this cute belt. A couple of times I've worn this skirt people have suggested I add a belt, so when I saw this belt in Forever New my skirt popped to mind right away! Really liked the little bit of colour the belt added, brought out some of the blue in the skirt print. 


Last worn: brown tee, vintage skirt, cut-out detail flats, Chloe Paddington bag.

I purchased this top a year ago and this is only the third time it's been worn, that's a really bad rate for such a pretty top! I definitely need to wear it more often. The top and blazer have been paired together before and I wasn't too happy with the outfit, but this time around I think it looks better with the top partially tucked in. What do you think?

Really felt like wearing blue and grey again on Thursday. Wanted to be comfortable, but also had an important meeting in the afternoon. I thought this jacket was a nice way to dress up a tee. It was a little cold though! The day before had been warm as I planned the outfit, but in the single digit temperatures on the way to work in the morning I was wishing I'd not picked a cropped sleeve jacket, haha!

Jeans for casual Friday! Had an off-site event today so carried my neverfull to hold all the important bits and pieces I needed. Ended up being a really long day.

I was pleased I'd picked flats to wear as during the morning the fire alarm sounded and we all had to evacuate. From the 17th level! Wasn't very fun, but it did give us a bit of a break in the day and let us enjoy the sunshine for a bit. :)

Zara Blazer, Printed Singlet, Red Skinny Jeans, Balenciaga Sang Clutch | Khaki Tee, Jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Aqua Mini MAC

Here's what I wore on Saturday to run errands, have an early Mother's Day celebration with family and go out for dinner:


Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
Top: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
JeansJeanswest Pepper Red super skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black

Bag: Balenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang


A lot of red today! Wanted to wear something warm. Still not too sure if the jacket and top and all of the red was too much together, but I felt comfortable and most importantly warm all day. Got DH to take a quick picture between a break in the rain, but that was the only time it stopped all day. Boots were the obvious choice, and comfortable for running around in the morning and going out in the evening.

Thankfully today the weather was a bit warmer, and a lot less rainy. Didn't have much to to, just wanted to relax today, so a really casual outfit of jeans and a tee. Shocked to find it's been over a year since I last wore this top though, crazy!

Please excuse the water droplets on my mini MAC - got it a little wet from bushing on the leaves of the bush in the photo. Didn't notice till I uploaded the photos, it dried up pretty quickly.

Close up of accessories and bag:


I wasn't feeling very inspired last night when trying to decide what to wear - decided to go with my target LBD as I think the pleats and studs add some nice interest to it. The weather was cooler this morning though, so added a pop of colour with my Zara blazer. Even Cooper thought it was a bit windy - he doesn't look very happy in the first photo!

This dress was another piece my sister gave me after her wardrobe clear out. I really like the floral print and ruffle top. I thought the pink and blue matched well with it, even the shoes, but Cooper's managed to cover them with his fluffy tail, haha!
My hair is tied up as I got absolutely drenched on the way to work after leaving my umbrella at home. I tried to think my messed up hair was "natural waves" as it dried but really it was just messy, so tied it back for the office.

A lot of these pieces have been worn together before, and the outline of this outfit is very similar to yesterday's with the ruffle top! The dreary weather hasn't left me very inspired lately.

Dressing Up Jeans With Boucle Jackets

Posting another two denim outfits, trying to dress them up a little with statement jackets.

Here's what I wore to visit the child health nurse and go shopping:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
JacketAsos blazer in textured boucle with fluro binding
Scarf: Jay Jays orange scarf
TopJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank (on sale!)
JeansSass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


I'm rather proud of this outfit. Not that I think it's particularly wonderful, just because of the speed I managed to put it together while rushing around getting baby T and I ready. Funny how speed of getting dressed has a big impact on my feelings when wearing an outfit nowadays! It had been a particularly hectic morning as we were running late, with multiple changes of clothes required for baby and me slowing us down.

I think the scarf makes it look a little more put together, like I actually spent time planning my outfit. With the cardigan, it's soft for baby to snuggle into and also easy to clean in case of more 'accidents'. It's really comfortable with the jeans and Converse. And most importantly of all, it stayed clean for our outing. We weren't too late to meet the nurse, and she even complimented me on my jacket! Even had a little time afterwards to do a quick grocery shop for the essentials as well.

Surprisingly, the scarf hasn't been on the blog before - or I couldn't find it if it has. It's an oldie, a gift a while back from my mum. Should wear it more often, it's such a nice orange colour. Added it as the cardi kept me warm enough, didn't need a thick scarf.


Last worn: Ray-Ban, textured cardi, stripe tank, Sass and Bide jeans, white Converse, MbMJ baby bag.



Here's what I wore to go to the post office:

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
TopMarc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
JeansJeanswest blue skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan


I'd been wanting to wear this jacket for a while. Last time I wore it I was heavily pregnant! I thought it would pair nicely with my colourblock maxi skirt when I last wore it, but it's not the best thing to wear if I've got baby T in his carrier because of the metal zips. It works really nicely with denim though, and kept me warm for a trip to the post office to pick up a parcel. Jeans and boots is a slight change from jeans and Converse, and something I can really only wear in winter so I'm enjoying it while I can before Spring officially starts next week.

The red scarf is another piece I've been feeling the need to wear lately - hasn't gotten a lot of love this winter compared to my other skull scarves. Was good to be able to wear both pieces in one outfit. Funny that the last time I wore this grey tee I paired it with the same scarf!


Last worn: Ray Ban (see above), Zara tweed jacket, red skull scarf, grey tee, skinny jeans, leather boots.
