The 7 Summer trends I am wearing

Lets get trendy.

I am not the usual suspect of ‘only’ wearing things on trend. I still have wooden clogs, knitted flares and light pink 70’s sunglasses in my wardrobe, so you could say that I like to pair my old-school favourites back with newbies. I however went into Westfield Warringah Mall (AKA my local), and found some goodies. And by goodies, I mean the trends I am fond of and have been wearing this Summer.

Watch the video folks. My favourite trends and even my new favourite vintage furniture is on show. Go, go, go.

Wear your dress as a skirt

Is it a dress, a skirt? No, it is Gucci girl.

I am forever channeling my inner 8 year old self. Take us back to the days where the only worry in the world was not missing a cartoon, pretending you ate your vegetables or sneaking lollies into my frozen coke. 

Today: when my dress was also a skirt. Wear your slip dress with a t-shirt over the top. Be sure to tighten the t-shirt around the waist to give a little more shape.

If I was to date again. This is what I would wear.

Ok, Ok. This is the question our friends have asked us time and time again. ‘What should I wear tonight?’ ‘I am going on a date’ ‘Do I show some skin, cover up, dress up, dress down?!’ (enter crazy faced emoji here)

When it comes to dating, and I am talking here as if I am a professional in the field, I am not, but I will tell you what I would wear if I were back on the dating scene.

Please dress your age and try to look effortless. Do you really want the guy to think you took 3 hours in the bathroom for this date? No. Wear an outfit that says ‘I just threw this on before I came.’ Toss that natural hair, pop on some tinted moisturiser, bronzer and mascara and voilà!

Here are a few outfit ideas for casual first dates I pulled from Westfield Warringah Mall (available now) –

1. Scotch & Soda striped shirt, Rollas denim, Betts heels & Ray Ban sunglasses
2. Morrison dress and Lovisa earrings
3. Vintage tee from Glassons, Scotch & Soda skirt and Nine West heels

Welcome to my: Home Office

It is about time I filled you in on a little home goss. 

A little recap: We bought a house, a 112 year old gem to be precise. The beautiful old girl needs a full renovation, so I have decided to take you through the whole process. 

Three words to describe her: Charming, eclectic and mysterious.

The formal living, which acts as my office, is the only room staying as is, well after a little paint and a re-stain of the floor boards. Because of this, I have already started the interior design. So first things first: My home office.

I work from my home for half of my week, so I need a home office station to stay motivated and to not get distracted by the piles of washing downstairs or the chocolate and wine in my kitchen. I like clutter; organised cluttered. I believe you can never have too many ornaments, art and books in your house – so go crazy! I love myself a mid-century anything, which is evident.

So, I hope you like my little nook I styled, where I edit photos, write stories, plan shoots and listen to (very) loud music. Any questions hola at me.
