Category Archives: New Purchase Arrival





New shoes! Yay!

I’ve had my eye on these for a while, then I saw my friend Nat wearing them and bam! I was sold!

They have a chunkier heel than I am use to, and to be honest that was the one thing that was keeping me from making the purchase when I first saw them… But it’s this heel that makes them so comfortable!

I’m loving the edgy cut outs and front lacing- not so practical as we are approaching the winter months but hey, they look fabulous so that’s all that matters!

Talking about shoes- I’ll be running a Mother’s Day competition in conjunction with Miss Minit via my Instagram ALLDRESSEDUPBLOG next week- stay tuned for details and make sure you follow me on Instagram!

SOY (Summary Of Yesterday) Part 1: Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Yesterday was absolutely sweltering!

The kids and I spent the morning running errands (read: Woolworths trip 2 for the week) and then came home and splashed in the pool to cool down. They also had a play in the sandpit not good when you’re all wet!

So into the bath they went for a quick wash down before the afternoon siesta.

I don’t know about your kids but mine love love love having no clothes on. They ran up and down the hallway screaming “nudie rudie! nudie rudie!” in nothing but their undies/nappies, and stayed that way while I started on dinner.

They had so much fun mucking around that they didn’t want to go to sleep, but I told them “no sleep, no trick-or-treating” and so they ran quick as a flash to their rooms and konked out like I knew they would. Nothing works better than bribery.

On an outfit note, I wore several new purchases together for the morning outting-

T-Shirt & Earrings: Sportsgirl, Jeans: Denim & Thread, Sunglasses: MinkPink, Bangle: CC Skye, Shoes: Christian Louboutin

New Item No. 1: Mirrored MinkPink Aviator Sunglasses- $50 from David Jones, they get a tick since I had them on my buy now list. Buy them over at, and

New Item No. 2: Sportsgirl T-Shirt- my local Sportsgirl store was having a $10 off promo on their swing t-shirts and singlets, so I picked up 3 t-shirts (black, white, heather grey) for $19.95 each, and 2 singlets (white and heather grey) for $14.95 each. They’re a great cut as they’re not too loose around the bust and neckline then flare out in a nice ‘swing’ shape at the hemline- great for hiding tummy lumps and bumps!


New Item No. 3: Shoulder Duster Earrings from Sportsgirl $16.95. We all know I’m really big on accessories- it’s hard to justify wearing fancy clothes out when you have 2 kids under the age of 4 (is that cordial on my Balmain t-shirt?!), so accessories are my go-to staples to dress up my wardrobe basics. Necklaces are a must (see previous posts) and my new obsession is earrings. Big ones. Fancy ones. Full-on shoulder duster ones.

What did you do to cool off?

NP (New Purchase) Arrival: Ksubi Skirt

My Ksubi skirt arrived late last week, and I finally got to wear it!

My new skirt got its first outing to the Halloween shop to buy a costume for Her Majesty, and of course all my clothes need to get familiar with Woolworths so off we went after we picked up a princess outfit… I know, not very Halloween appropriate, but hey, she wants to be a princess instead of a witch and who can blame her? Witches have such a bad rep!

Today’s pictures are a double post as I wanted to show you all my trusty chambray shirt which is currently on very high rotation in my wardrobe (see my previous post here).

It has cool zipper pockets

Here’s my chambray shirt- see? It has tabs on the arms so you can roll up the sleeves and keep them there… very handy.

Chambray Shirt: J Crew, Skirt: Ksubi, Necklace: Sportsgirl, Shoes: Valentino, Sunglasses: Tom Ford, Watch: Tag Heuer, Red Personalised Bracelet: (by request) Diamond Bracelet: From hubby for christmas last year

On another note, my poor buxus hedge is in desperate need of some fertiliser! Hubby hedged it after letting it grow out of control for too long and now it looks like it’s going bald! Just look at it! You can see straight through it in some parts it’s so patchy! It’s on my to-do list this weekend.
