DRESS FOR YOU: another boyfriend original

There has been a dramatic decline in outfit posts on my Instagram and blog over the past couple of months and when I do post, you’ll notice I’m recycling the same pieces.

As most of you are aware, my wardrobe went through a big cull last year and I’ve been slowly trying to build it back up and create MY perfect wardrobe.

I had been purchasing pieces for the sake of this goal but realised it wasn’t working for me. Things weren’t being worn before I grew tired of seeing them so I’ve decided to take a step back and purchase only as necessary – i.e. to replace an item or for a specific event/occasion. In the meantime, I’ll raid my boyfriend’s closet and live in his things.

DRESS FOR YOU: summer denim

I’ve realised recently that I’ve been looking at my wardrobe wrong.  Rather than trying to keep it ‘minimalist’ and panicking every time a new piece enters it without removing something old, I have changed my tactic in that I’m allowing it to fill with pieces I love (and that fit, are intact and unstained (#mumlife)).

HOW TO: be happy

Happiness is something I’ve thought about a lot lately.  After a tough couple of months (read about it here), I can honestly say that I am – with every fibre of my being – happy.  A blissful, light, singing along to the radio at the top of my lungs, sun on my skin, kind of happy.
