I don’t know how but the year is absolutely flying by and yet winter seems to be taking an age to pass through. I have well and truly been battling with the winter blues. Nevertheless, I thought I’d do another monthly update on the blog for July/August because my May/June one got a pretty good reception.

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.

Top – Cotton On
Bag – Some market in Ho Chi Minh
Jeans – Rolla’s Jeans
Shoes – Billini
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)).
Ok, so this one might be more for me than you. Ever see a trend, buy into it, get it home and wonder how the hell you are going to work it? That was me with this head scarf.
It amazes me how much of my life I could tell you through my clothes. I seem to have a story to go with every piece I own.
Wanna know what I love about this outfit? The bodysuit means I don’t won’t get a cold back because there’s no way it can untuck!
