Featured Image - Kaftan

I shared a post earlier about ‘How To Turn A Beach Kaftan Into A Sun Dress‘  - well… here are the pictures of ME in the dress! I love it! Now I have realised that I have a bit an issue with colour. I love it, and I crave it… but… I don’t know, I just can’t seem to get it right. This means I tend to go for blacks, whites and greys and add colour in my accessories. Now, {Read More}

How To Turn A Beach Kaftan Into A Sundress

Kaftan into Sundress Title

A few weeks ago, I picked up a fabulous kaftan from a thrift store. I was shopping with my mother, who told me in no uncertain terms that I should NOT buy the kaftan as it was, “for the beach.” Well, I looked at this kaftan and decided I had to have it. I loved the colour, I loved the design, I loved the neckline and I loved the shape (or no shape which works well for my over shapely {Read More}

The Panel: Does Your Husband Give You Fashion Advice?

Fashion Advice from Husbands

This week, I asked my ‘Panel’ if their husbands/partners/cats gave them fashion advice? If yes, did they love or loathe it? If not, did they love or loathe it? I often ask Mr Cool if I look all right, more often than not he says yes.  I love that Mr Cool likes the way I dress, but also encourages me to ‘think out of the box’ when it comes to fashion. Mr Cool has very good taste in clothes, so {Read More}

What I Wore: Pineapples & Country Road

Pineapple Shirt

This outfit has been my summer staple: the relaxed fit tee, the drawstring pant and the sandal. It has taken me to casual dinner parties, day trips, everyday kinds of things like swimming lessons, the school run, the doctor’s surgery. It is comfortable, cool, classic – with a side of fun in the shape of a pineapple! I love this kind of outfit because it needs only a couple of key things and the outfit zings. I am talking about {Read More}

This summer, I have been loving the pineapple motif that is everywhere from t-shirts to cushions. I love the quirky kitsch-ness of them, don’t you?  I think that they are the very picture of summer indeed. I have the pineapple t-shirt from Country Road shown above, I will show you me wearing it tomorrow in fact!  The very motif makes me happy. So… I thought I would share a bit of a round up of where you too can get {Read More}

What I Wore :: Thrifted Faithfuls

WIW  - Thrifted Faithfuls Title

It has been a loooooong time between fashion posts. A LONG time… When I did Frocktober and was putting together a fashion post every single day, I felt really… exposed. Which probably seems strange for a blogger to say that. I don’t like being in photographs. I really don’t. Surely my skin doesn’t look *that* way all the time? Is my nose really that shape? Why does my leg do *that* when I have my photo taken? Critical, harsh questions {Read More}

The Frocktober Review – 5 Noteworthy Dresses

Frocktober Review1

Last month I wore a dress every day. Yes, EVERY day. This included camping and work and walks to the park with the kids. It was fun, but… it was a challenge and it was all for Frocktober: raising money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. So… it was all worth it! I am naturally shy and not so fond of being in front of the camera, so to sign up to showcases moi in a dress everyday was {Read More}
