Fashion – Casual Saturday
Aug
6th

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 life. I needed to breathe a little bit of life back into things, albeit very casually, because I don’t have a lot of commitments right now besides kindergarten drop off and pick up, and the very occasional quick lunch or dinner date with my husband.

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.

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 ->
