I’ll tell you something for nothing … there was a lot of perspiring happening this past weekend. It was more than a small shock after five days in Tasmania where I even got to wear jeans and a cardi. The week before we spent at the beach in NSW. It may have been hot but the humidity

Every so often a frock style comes along that just captures my wardrobe heart. Oh who am I kidding? SO many summer frock styles capture my wardrobe heart. It’s my favourite way of dressing as it only takes one garment to create an outfit. But. This summer I’ve been well and truly seduced by the

Hello. It’s me. ANNOYING me on holidays. At the beach. Does it help if you know that this post was written BEFORE we went on holidays? Good. Let’s go with that shall we? I’m talking about shorts today. Specifically wearing shorts. In Queensland there are some days that shorts are the only thing you can contemplate

I had to think last night was day it was. That’s a good sign, don’t you think? That I’ve let go of the everyday routine? That I’ve slipped into a go-slow period that’s very pleasing? This time last year we were packing to move to Brisbane and I can tell you there was no time

How was your weekend before Christmas? Ours was a mix of getting ready for the big day, aka THE food shop to end all food shops, and prepping for food for the first of our festive gatherings yesterday. My youngest brother heads to South Australia each year for Christmas with his in-laws so we always

I’m still in outfit planning mode as to what I’ll wear Christmas Day (and any of the other Christmas-type gatherings leading up to the day). I talked in this post how I’m not afraid to err on the side of naff-ness and embrace the colours of the season and I stand by that. So much

If you have curves and are size 12-24 then finding a pair of jeans can be a challenge. I very much like the white ripped ones from Embody Denim I featured a couple of weeks ago. I rejoiced when Blue Illusion brought out its shape denim range earlier this year. And I’m a card-carrying member

Can I just tell you just how refreshing it was to fly south these past few days and get a taste of weather that did not bring with it a gazillion percent humidity? On Thursday I wore a jacket and jeans ALL day and did not once perspire. I may have even shivered at a

I know that many are scared of wearing white. I was reminded of that with my post last week about finding the perfect white tee. Well, brace yourself Stylers because I’ve gone one step further and pulled on not just a white tee … but white PANTS. The Napisan has been stocked up on and I’m

Can we pause for a moment to think about the heat that most of us have experienced over the past few days somewhere across this wide land. Melbourne and Adelaide, you copped it first, then Sydney and for my fellow south-east Queenslanders, we didn’t need a gathering of world leaders to produce hot air. No,

Sponsored by Blue Illusion I’m so excited to bring you a new Movie Star and Me post with Blue Illusion. I’ve got a bit more accustomed to seeing the face of Blue Illusion – French actor Juliette Binoche – in the same clothes of me (you can catch up here) but I still wondered if I could

How was your weekend? I hope you got a chance to relax. I most certainly did. I did a little spring organisation at home and a lot of just hanging out with my family. I do miss those simple things when I’m travelling. Coming home is about re-grouping and just being. And I don’t mind

FEATURED Binny

I have a lot to thank Offspring and Nina Proudman for. For starters many of you first found this blog while searching for something Nina Proudman-style related. For seconders, the show’s costume designers introduced me to a number of Australian labels I’d previously not known. Binny is one of those labels. Binny is a Victorian-based

I don’t know about where you live but here in Queensland, the summer switch as well and truly been flicked on. Even in Sydney on the weekend there was no hint of cooler days and nights. Everyone was out enjoying the sun – at the beach, along Oxford Street at Paddington and at the races by

With conflicting reports (here and here – you be the judge) as to whether Offspring will ever return to our screens, today’s Model and Me is an ode to Nina Proudman … because even if she never returns to our screens, her style will always have a place in my wardrobe. I’m far from a fully
