How to dress like Nina Proudman

We interrupt our regular Nina Proudman style program to bring you some style thoughts from Jane Harber, the actor who plays Zara in Ten’s Offspring. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet and interview Jane when she was on a day trip to Brisbane to talk Offspring with media. It’s pure coincidence that we’re both

The Model and Me: Motto

Motto top and pants SS14-15

There are times when I put on a garment and cannot believe just how right the designer gets it in regards to creating something that can be so comfortable AND so flattering. This is THE winning combination in my style book. Earlier this year, Australian label Motto introduced me to its Lauren cropped pant. There

What to wear when you are pregnant

What to wear when you are pregnant maternity chic style from the real women of everydaystyle

It’s been eight years and 362 days since I was last pregnant. If I’ve done my maths correctly then that equates to my youngest child turning nine on Monday. Those nine years have disappeared in the blink of an eye. Before then I hadn’t been pregnant for further nine years. SO MUCH had happened in

I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again – my multiple wardrobe personalities often sway nicely between the style of both Proudman sisters. Billie Proudman speaks to my classic-corporate style personality; Nina Proudman speaks to my romantic-casual style personality. Many of you are either one or the other. And that’s ok too. Probably more ok

A new fashion season is a dawning. I know it never makes any sense. It’s something that happens twice a year so you’d think I’d be used to it by now but coming off a week when we experienced some of the coldest temperatures in more than 100 years it really does make it tricky

What to pack for a weekend in Melbourne

What to wear for a girls weekend in Melbourne #everydaystyle

I know a lot of people have been lucky enough to be travelling in recent weeks – either near to home or half way around the world. Not here at SY HQ – work has beckoned. Today’s #everydaystyle post has come about thanks to an SY reader who is looking forward to a weekend away

This week I was lucky enough to get 15 minutes on the phone with the two creative people behind the costuming on Offspring. I spoke to Michael Chisholm and Zed Dragojlovich last year (you can catch up here) but I was keen to catch up with them again this year with some burning questions about Nina’s wardrobe for

The Model and Me: Surafina

The designers behind label Surafina speak to my need to dress like it’s winter but not swelter because I live in Queensland. It helps that they are based in Queensland. It helps a lot. They understand that we can have super chilly nights and mornings and then glorious sunny days that require us to un-layer

how to make an outfit look better | real-women style inspiration #everydaystyle

Can you believe that #everydaystyle is more than six months old? I can’t. What started as a reader request to see more of what I wore every day – not just for special occasions or for blog posts – evolved into a personal challenge for me. I might blog and advise people about fashion and

Let’s talk about Nina Proudman and her style this season. I know we do just that every Thursday around here but I want to talk specifically about the overall style she’s projecting this season. There are a few comments on last week’s post from people who think her style has gone a bit off track, that

The Model and Me: Firefly Clothing

It’s that crazy point in the fashion season where it’s actually turned to winter weather but the stores are in sale mode and in a matter of weeks they’ll be convincing us that spring is a thing. Urrgghhh. It’s all just crazy. Where does it leave us? The fashion consumer? Confused at worst. Accepting at

What wear for winter weekend casual

What to wear weekend casual #everydaystyle

Last week we looked to the real women of #everydaystyle for some inspiration on what to wear to the office. This week we’re all about the casual. For me, most days call for a casual outfit. I work from home. There’s usually a school and post office run involved. Occasionally there is a meeting or

You know how much I love a pair of printed pants, don’t you? Well it seems that this trend is also appealing to Nina-I-prefer-skinny-jeans-Proudman. Nina Proudman style Her second outfit on the show last night featured a pair of printed silk pants from French label Mes Demoiselles (for Australian stockists contact distributors Sharrock), worked back with

Do you know which are my fave celebrity paparazzi photos? The ones where someone beautiful and famous has just stepped off a plane looking like they’ve just been on a three-day-health retreat, not a long-haul flight. Yes, sitting (or lying down) up the pointy end of the plane certainly does help in these circumstances. Good

I do love wearing jeans and long pants in winter and I’ll freely admit that this is easily my fallback outfit option. But the frock girl in me is never too far away. Given that I work from home so don’t need to do an office-type frock all that often, it’s more a tunic style
