Fashion – Bomber Jacket Weather
Oct
3rd

You guys. I have a new obsession and it’s pretty obvious what it is. Bomber jackets. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to come around to them, but suddenly they are literally EVERYWHERE and I can’t get enough of them. I bought an olive green one a while ago and now I’ve got my eye on a floral one after seeing an actress on TV wearing a cute purple floral one with a white tee, jeans and sneakers. I think they add a nice pop of colour to an otherwise plain jeans ensemble, or in monochromatic colours pull together a chic black and white outfit in a subtle way.

I’ve been looking around online for the perfect floral bomber jacket, so I decided to do a quick post for anyone else looking as well. Here are my favourites, from left to right.

I’ve been trying to update my wardrobe a little bit lately. I think it’s because we’ve reached that point in Winter where it feels like it’s never going to end, I’m going to be stuck inside forever, and I’m never going to wear anything except fleecy hoodies and tracksuit pants for the rest of my… Continue reading ->

Despite all the rain here in Melbourne (seriously, dudes), I’m starting to day dream about warm Summer nights where we can relax outside on the back porch and eat dinner as the sun sets and watch our daughter play in the backyard. Before we moved last year, we only had a very small courtyard space… Continue reading ->

Did anyone make it to the Finders Keepers market at the Exhibition Building in Melbourne over the weekend? I went on Friday night and had a great time perusing the stalls and enjoying some child-free time. There were a LOT of really great independent retailers there, but if you couldn’t make it, don’t worry! I’ve… Continue reading ->

Country Road Tuck Bodycon Dress

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 ->

Kate Spade wallet pink_THUMBNAIL

Okay, since last week’s post I’m officially half way through our Christmas shopping, hooray! I’m hoping to have it all knocked over by the end of next week and I think that’s totally doable. Of course, I’m sure there will be one or two last minute gifts to purchase, but as long as the big… Continue reading ->

Target Dresses_THUMB

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 ->
