I’m always reading about the life-changing Little Black Dresses (LBD’s) that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe. Apparently they are the easy fix for date nights, dinner with the girls, birthday parties, engagement parties- you get the idea.
Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I’ve been meaning to post this outfit for ages, but got side-tracked by other posts and it’s only just making it to the blog now.
We don’t really have Autumn and Spring in Australia. Our two seasons, warm and hot, also known as Winter and Summer, seem to fade into one another without much fanfare.
You know the feeling when you see something in a shop, or online, and you just know it HAS to be yours? I get that feeling an awful lot, so I try really hard not to be an impulsive buyer and to give things a day or so to mull over. When I saw this dress in my Instagram newsfeed, it occupied my every spare thought for three days, a clear sign that it was meant to be.
I’ve said it before but it bears repeating: I’m seriously in love with the combination of white, blue and tan. There’s just something so clean and fresh about this timeless combination.
I don’t get the opportunity to go home very often, and this year one of my resolutions was to make it happen as frequently as I could manage. Home is a small country town in Far North Queensland. It doesn’t boast anything particularly unique or spectacular, but it’s the place of my childhood sleepovers, birthday parties and school excursions. My school, first ballet studio, primary-school-friend’s houses and best of all, my parents.
I’m a bit of a sucker for a pussy-bow blouse. In a lot of instances they can start looking a bit fussy, but when the blouse in question comes in the sweetest shade of dusky pink silk, who cares?
Blue denim never goes out of style. I don’t know that there has been any point in my life when my wardrobe didn’t boast a pair of jeans that were well worn and well loved. When I was growing up, although you might see the occasional denim skirt or jacket (and boy, haven’t they made a comeback in the last few years), I can never remember seeing denim dresses.
Everyone loves a good party, right? I do too, except I’m usually a pyjama-party-for-one-with-a-tub-of-ice-cream kind of girl rather than the paint-the-town-red kind.
Colour, Colour, colour. If you’ve ready any of my previous posts, you’ll know that there’s nothing I love quite as much as beautiful colours.
