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.

I love dressing up for special occasions and events. I love the entire process. From the search for the perfect outfit, the getting dolled up, to being out wearing something new. So I thought it would make a fun post to talk about the process I go through in determining what I wear for an event or a special occasion. Continue reading “HOW TO: dress for an event”→
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)).
I’m one of those girls who loves a night out in a new outfit. Being a single mum means that I have to be incredibly organised if I want a big night out with the girls. So more often than not, I have to plan at least a week in advance. The plus-side of this is a know when I’m going to need a new dress. I saw this one on Princess Polly, it’s so simple but the cut of it is perfect plus, being an LBD means that it is so versatile.
One day when I sitting in one of my university classes, I realised something – I wore something black everyday. Whilst it was an issue probably less important than what my lecturer was teaching, it amazed me. How did this happen?
I love this quick and easy look. Thrown together in a second and (baby willing) can take you from day to night. The floral pattern on the bomber jacket adds a beautiful feminine element to a masculine design.
