Having a baby is a weird thing. I mean, it’s amazing and exhausting because you know, you get a baby at the end of the forty odd weeks, but it does a weird thing to a person’s sense of style. Pre-baby you’re confident (mostly) about what you like to wear and what you’re comfortable in and what looks good on your body. Post-baby you’re uncomfortable in your skin for a little while, your lumpy and saggy where you didn’t used to be lumpy and saggy, and you (possibly) have to wear super unsexy maternity bras that leave awful lines under your tops and have straps as wide as a man’s belt. It’s great, let me tell you. You feel like you’ve forgotten how to shop for clothing that isn’t maternity wear and suddenly you don’t have to wear clothing to accommodate a huge belly anymore. It’s a confusing time.
I gave birth at the end of November, and once we got through the first month and Christmas and everything I realised that the sales would be a good time to start searching for a few new pieces to add to my wardrobe that suit breastfeeding on the go and make me feel a little on-trend while I wait for my body to go back to its normal shape (please please please). I started with shoes, since my feet haven’t changed shape, then worked my way up, buying online and in stores.
Resurfacing after an unscheduled blogging break to bring you the Emmy Award Fashion hits and misses! We’ve had a tough month of sickness in our house, and though I wasn’t sick as my husband and daughter, I feel very run down and exhausted. So this year’s Emmys red carpet was a welcome breath of fresh… Continue reading ->
First of all, I will not apologise for the title pun. I’ve realised in the last year or so that whenever I stock up on earrings, usually at Lovisa’s three for two sales, that I tend to exclusively buy stud earrings, always in silver. I do own dangly earrings and a few pairs of hoops… Continue reading ->
Country Road always do great Winter dresses, with great long sleeves (imperative for Winter – short sleeved dresses in Winter ranges drive me bonkers. IT’S COLD. I WANT TO COVER MY ARMS.) Last year there were a couple I saw that I didn’t buy, including a gorgeous black and white one, and I was kicking… Continue reading ->
My best friend had her hen’s night over the weekend, and I was super excited to get dressed up and kick up my heels. I might have been so excited that I ordered a total of four dresses from Asos and The Iconic to try on, but they all got returned (free returns, what can… Continue reading ->
Okay, first of all we need to address how utterly gorgeous Jacob Tremblay is and how much we’ll all miss seeing his cute face everywhere now that awards season is basically over: So now that we’ve acknowledged that, let’s move on to the fashion. There were a lot of gorgeous colours this year, which I… Continue reading ->
Yay, it’s award season! I feel like the Golden Globes always sneak up on me. Like, it’s Christmas, then New Year’s Eve, then you’re recovering from eating too much, then you’re back at work, then BOOM. A bunch of celebs are getting dressed up and drunk in a hotel function room. It’s just such fun… Continue reading ->
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Target is selling the most versatile, easy, comfortable Summer dresses and skirts I’ve seen in ages. Well, that’s not 100% true. I have seen the dresses before – last Summer to be exact, when I breezed through my local Target store and grabbed one to… Continue reading ->
One of my style goals (ugh, I don’t know if I like that term, but let’s just move on) for the past few years has been to wear more jewellery. I usually just wear some earrings and my wedding and engagement rings and that’s it. I never wear bracelets because I always find them too… Continue reading ->
This is a sponsored post. Guys, it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday. YOU HAVE TWO DAYS TO ORGANISE SOMETHING. This is your official warning! And please, make it something good okay? The shops all seem to think that all us mothers want is pyjamas, dressing gowns, slippers and maybe some cheap bath and body stuff. I… Continue reading ->
