A weekend of style in pictures

Nikki Parkinson Life 48 Comments

Is it really Monday morning? How did I get here? And where did the last four days go?

My email inbox is looking like a nightmare challenge this morning so I thought I’d take you through my trip to Melbourne and back home again in pictures. Pictures of style.

(For bloggers reading, I’ll have more about what I learned at the ProBlogger Training Day in my regular Saturday blogging post this week.)

First stop in Melbourne: L'Oreal headquarters with Edenland and WoogsworldFirst stop: Afternoon tea with the PR team at L’Oreal headquarters. Mrs Woog and Eden puckered up first.

I’d love to tell you that I’m all styled up again today. But I’d be lying. Today, I’ll be makeup-free, doing the school run in my Havaianas and spending quality time in front of my computer. And thus, fashion and nature balances itself.

What did you get up to this weekend? See a fashion style you’d like to try yourself?

  1. Those shoes are awesome, and as I commented on instagram – I think that necklace needs a home in Perth. The Queen is coming and I need to be prepared!

    After several crazy weeks I spent the weekend at home which may or may not have involved lounging in Qantas PJs whilst ranting about sharks….

      I think if there were ever a shopping justification it would be an impending visit from the Queen ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I really would relish a weekend at home in my pjs, with or without shark ranting!

      Lina, it was so lovely to see you (and sit next to you) too! I’m very much a “heart” girl. I have a lot of jewellery featuring hearts and loved arriving at my girlfriend’s birthday party to see this – everyone had their own names on their glasses.

  2. Oh wow, I think I’ve just fallen in “shoe lust” – those Jeffrey Campbell’s are amazing! It was so lovely to meet you (briefly) at the Problogger event Nikki, hope you had a fantastic time. You were most certainly rocking that necklace! Rach xx

  3. THOSE SHOES! THOSE SHOES! (Yes, I know, it’s been said before, but they really are amazing).
    My weekend was about thongs, paddle pools and just hanging at home for once. I love this time of year.

    1. Oh, I mean thongs as in those worn on my feet. ‘Thongs and paddle pools’ could conjure up the wrong (and very weird) impression. And now I will go and have a much needed coffee…

      I know! They were amazing. I loved how my girlfriend wore them with matching anklets so that it just looked like they were part of the shoe design.

      And shiny, happy people unite! Use away x
