OLYMPIA

All inspired by Kym Ellery’s MBFWA showing a couple of nights ago made me get out her Olympia skirt and do a twirl or two. It seriously is one of those skirts that you don’t want to stop moving in! I love the volume and draping of this piece and felt it was such a statement on its own, a simple black tee was the perfect match for it.

ELLERY SPRING 15/16

Gemma Ward returned to MBFWA last night to open Ellery’s Spring Summer 15/16 show. Needless to remind you that Kym Ellery is still one of my favourite Australian designers and again she did not disappoint. Her signature flared sleeves and pants, and flowing layers puts her creations on the top of my wish list.

REVOLUTION

Finally I get to wear this sweater! Yes the weather has finally cooled allowing for me to wear some of my northern hemisphere winter purchases. This sweater was one of those pieces that I loved almost immediately. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to wear it whilst it was ‘on trend’ but that is not my rationale for choosing pieces for my wardrobe. I once used to be a slave to the trends but now I much prefer adding items that suit my developing style.

Isabel Marant Etoile Gillian Revolution sweater (and on sale!), Bassike tee, One Teaspoon Bandits denim shorts, Jil Sander perforated oxfords (similar here), Celine sunglasses, Celine Phantom Cabas bag (similar here)

MiH

As the countdown begins easy breezy is the name of the game. I can’t believe in only four to five weeks there will be another person in the house. I am mentally congratulating myself on not buying any maternity wear items (apart from a pair of black work trousers which I haven’t actually worn). Goes to show you can get by with your existing wardrobe, depending on your style I suppose. This MiH dress is now getting a little short as the hemline has risen to cover my bump, so might be relegated until after the event for now!

BIRTHDAY GIRL

I celebrated my birthday earlier in the week which was fantastic. Growing older isn’t something which necessarily bothers me- I have a lot of female role models that I look up to (including my own wonderful mum), so I can see how rich life can be the more experiences you have as the years go by. My motto is to take every opportunity that presents itself to you- no regrets!
