Today marks the first day of no daylight savings here in Sydney- and as you can see the clouds are appropriately gloomy. Autumn has officially started.

The change in weather means a drastic change in wardrobe- I go from living in cut off shorts all summer long (a lazy girl’s staple item for scorching heat) to suddenly wanting to be chic and polished.

This skirt is a life saver- the length and fitted shape means I feel semi-polished, but the distressing makes it feel modern and edgy. Plus of course, denim goes with everything.

These shoes- my lord are sooooo old… My good friend Ivy and I picked them up on our girls’ trip to Hong Kong a gazillion years ago… And they make it through the shoe cull every. single. time. I’m pretty sure she still has her pair too! I wish I’d bought them in every colour! I’m surprised I didn’t 🙂

Anyhow off to have a yummy lunch- it’s family day today! Yay no work!

Hope you’re having a fab weekend x

We went along to my god-daughter’s 1st Birthday party today- how time flies! I remember we were just at her christening and now she has reached her first birthday milestone!

The sun came out and made it a perfect day for face painting, playing and eating good food in the company of friends- all things that make a fantastic 1st birthday party.

Millie was such a good little lady, sitting still enough to let fairy Amanda paint her face, and generally getting passed from person to person for squishy cuddles without complaining or crying… my kids were not that well behaved at their 1st birthday parties for sure!

Happy Birthday Millie Moo! We love you!

Hope you had a fab weekend!

Went to dinner at new eatery Foley Lane with my best friends tonight- food was amazingly good and well worth the hour it took me to find parking 😦

Was excited to be able to rock out in my new Alexander Wang heels- bought on the weekend on sale at David Jones- they were surprisingly comfy! I’ll be buying them in every colour! (And you know I’m not kidding when I say that).

Ya’ll know I love love love prints, and I especially love to mash them up together! The key of course is in the colours- shades of neutrals are an easy way to mix prints if you’re a bit hesitant… Then just add a simple heel and you’re ready to go!

Hope you’re having a fab Friday night and have exciting things on this weekend!

Woke up this morning- with the beautiful city at our doorstep!

Me and the kids (husband was comatose from last night’s escapades) ate a leisurely breakfast and then headed over to Pitt St Mall for some serious retail therapy.

We all got new shoes- yay!- and had a super yummy lunch then back to the hotel for a nap- I forgot how tiring shopping can be! I’m out of practice 🙂

Feeling refreshed after our siesta we headed out for dinner at Bondi Trattoria– haven’t been in ages, but remembered that the food is amazing and it still is!

It’s been such a wonderful weekend- I wish it would never end… but it’s home time tomorrow 😦

Hope you had an equally wonderful weekend!

Am soooo excited- we are staying in town for the weekend to celebrate Hubby’s birthday!

First stop was drinks and dinner at Bungalow 8– a great place as the kids can come along and join us for a meal before it turns into an adults only place at 8pm.

Afterwards me and the kiddies headed out to watch the fireworks over the harbour and have room service dessert! What a treat!

Tomorrow will be a day of shopping and playing- I can barely contain my excitement! It’s so nice to have everything right on your doorstep, to be able to just walk to our beds as oppose to driving for an hour to get home!

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the weekend brings…

On an outfit note: these One Teaspoon shorts are my new favs- with no rips (except for the hem) they’re a cleaner take on the basic bandits shape. Quick, they’re selling out fast!

Shoes: Valentino (here, here and here and you can also get them from Miss Louise in Melbourne)

My love for leopard knows no bounds- Jenna Lyons of J Crew pretty much sums up how I feel… Leopard IS a neutral!
