My Style Diary - Summer

Hi :)

I'm currently down in Margaret River enjoying a week off from work. It is seriously the most relaxing place... I just find that all my worries seem to slip away when I'm here :) 

This morning we went for a walk along the beach. It was the perfect weather - warm, but not unbearably hot, so a great chance to get some much needed Vitamin D 
(Apparently I am somehow Vitamin D deficient... weird...)

My lovely Mum was kind enough to take a few quick snaps for me. Not really a blogworthy outfit, but I thought I'd include it nonetheless. This is my "style diary" after all, and it would be wrong to exclude my typical summer attire. These shorts were a bargain find for $5 at a Red Cross clothing sale. I love the cute little anchor patterned pockets!

Summer truly is my favourite time of year. I've been slightly envious of all the northern hemisphere bloggers with their beautiful snowy photos, but I know if I was there I would be wishing for the warmer weather. Summer is just so easy, simple... and I need to remember to appreciate it!

My Style Diary - Overalls

Heya :)

Okay, so this isn't exactly the most sophisticated of outfits... what with the combination of the overalls, a bunny riding a scooter and the bright blue nail polish... but you know what... 
sometimes you just feel like dressing up and having a bit of fun :)

I've always loved overalls, they were a staple in my wardrobe when I was little (although they were the full length kind), and wearing them now just takes me back to those days when everything was so much more simple and relaxed.  

I know some people are avidly against them, but I always think it's fun to embrace your inner child... and the short version makes them much more wearable! I think these ones would look super cute worn with Jelly sandals... although it may be taking the "little kid look" a step too far :p

Let me know what you think of overalls... yay or nay? (Don't worry I won't be offended if you hate them!)

Lots of Love

My Style Diary - Floral and Coral

Good morning :)

Happy Saturday! 
It's 7 o'clock and I've just spent a lovely hour sitting in bed, with the soft light filtering through the blinds, and catching up on reading my favourite blogs. I love this time of day... the air smells so fresh, the birds are chirping away...
 I've been trying to appreciate the little moments that make me happy, and this is definitely one of those moments :)


 This dress has gotten a lot of wear since it made it's first appearance on the blog a couple of months ago. It's one of those dresses that's just so easy to throw on when you're in a hurry and can work for lots of different occasions. On this particular day I was going out to lunch with a friend, and then to a bar for another friend's farewell party. It's been perfect for the hot days we've been having here too... light and breezy and lovely :)

I'll leave it at that for today as I should probably get up and start getting things done!
 Have a lovely weekend!

My Style Diary - Beat the Heat

Hellooo :)

So, the past weekend in Perth was a scorcher. I don't think it quite reached the predicted 44 degrees, but it was damn hot! As I saw someone say on Instagram - when there's a heat wave like this there's only two places to be ... the water or the aircon. 

What better way to stay comfy and cool than in my favourite white shorts and shirt combo, with just a little pop of colour from this bright coral nail polish. 
This is actually one of my favourite outfits - nothing fancy but just really laid back and simple. In 40 degree heat, basics are your best friend :)

I hope you're having a great Monday night!

My Style Diary - Prairie Dreaming

Hello :)

So this is my first post of 2014! Happy New Year! 
I'm finally back with another outfit post after what feels like ages!

These pics were actually taken a couple of weeks ago, and I'd forgotten that I took them. (That seems to happen to me fairly often). 
I'm looking forward to getting my camera back on Friday so you can expect lots more outfit posts in the next few weeks. Summer is when I'm most inspired and excited about fashion, so I'm looking forward to getting back into blogging! Having said that though... my outfits will probably consist of simple summer dresses or shorts, so hopefully they're not too boring!


I like to think of this as my "prairie dress" and ideally for these photos I would be in a field full of grass and yellow flowers as far as the eye can see. 
That's what I picture when I wear this dress... something along the lines of this photo...

Sadly, I don't have access to that kind of scenery... so my back garden will have to do! 

I'll leave it at that for now - have to get an early night so I'm well rested going back to work tomorrow!


Lots of Love
