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!

UNIFORM

As much as I love wearing skirts and heels, I have developed what I refer to as my ‘mum uniform’. It’s easy to throw on, run around in and most importantly wash! As I mentioned in my last post Bassike tees are one of those essential pieces that are duplicated in my wardrobe in both the short and long sleeved varieties. And these One Teaspoon shorts are soon to multiply too as they are uber comfortable and one pair is simply not enough!

RZARD

For quite some time I have been eyeing off this Ellery skirt. Even though it is not a piece I can wear on a daily basis it still became a ‘need’ (rather than just a ‘want’) purely because it struck me as a timeless piece that would remain in my wardrobe for a lifetime. This brings up my classification system when deciding on new additions to my collection. I’m not sure whether I have discussed this on the blog previously but I am trying to be more astute about my purchases these days, ensuring each new piece can fit seamlessly into what is existing without replication. Of course there will be replication but this only occurs with pieces that are worn extremely often (hello Bassike tees!).

VICTORIANA

The high neckline and lace look of this dress evokes a Victorian feel. The details are exquisite- intricate broderie material, delicate buttons at the back of the neck, and soft cotton lining. One of my favourites right now, it’s nice to feel super feminine well into the third trimester. You will notice Shell wore the top version of this dress last week- just as pretty and looks great on her.

PLANNING AHEAD

I bought this dress when I was only about 16 weeks pregnant and barely showing. I was on a trip to Brisbane and spent some time in one of the department stores looking for shapes that would accommodate an eventual bump. One of the Zimmermann sales girls was wearing this and I thought it would be perfect, so I bought it in a size up from usual. Shift dresses have definitely become my go-to pieces- my stomach needs the space!
