t-shirt Joe Fresh
star sweater Forever 21 (sold out online
but same one here
in black here & original version here)

This is quite possibly the prettiest skirt I've ever owned! The print reminds me of something you'd see in a show me your mumu collection and the crochet trim adds a little something extra. Plus it was clearly designed with taller people in mind!! It's high-waisted yet still touches the ground, something that doesn't happen often for me when it comes to maxi skirts. Ever since my pregnancies I haven't been feeling maxi skirts or dresses, I got SO sick of wearing them, but the leg slits in this skirt made me reconsider how I felt. 

I love everything about this pretty floral maxi skirt, all the little details make it my favorite piece for summer. love love love!

wattlebird kimono, a thing of perfection

 arrowhead necklace Forever 21, kimono (similar) Arnhem Clothing

The only word that comes to mind when trying to describe this kimono is perfection. Perfect fit, perfect pattern, perfect colours. It begs to be worn as more than just a bathing suit cover-up, which is not something that happens often. Questioning my decision not to get it in the longer version as well. It's the perfect layering piece to wear on hot days when you want to cover up a bit and not overheat. Plus it drapes nicely.

Also, the gladiator sandals. Love them but not going to lie, they are just as complicated to put on as they look. 

Worth the hassle? 


Getting back into shape after baby #2 (a post about running)

Jun 1, 2015

Something a little off topic today, but relevant because it's a big part of my life and takes up a lot of my time and energy. Long distance running is a sport I love and have done the majority of my adult life but not something I talk about often on the blog. With blogging it's easy to show only one tiny aspect of your life, but that doesn't always provide context so occasionally I like to try and share other things besides my obsession with kimonos, playsuits and gladiator sandals!

The long weekend went by far too quickly, lots of bbqs, drinks on a roof-top patio and late nights for everyone, even the girls. When packing for our trip home I wasn't sure what to bring, some days it's sweltering hot and some days it's freezing. It doesn't help that the weather forecast is never right! I threw a pair of overalls in the suitcase figuring they'd be easy to wear in any type of weather or situation and I'm glad I did!

To be honest I think my wardrobe contains far too many pairs of overalls so I've branched out into jumpsuits which are kind of the same thing, but I find myself constantly reaching for the overalls. I don't know why I love them so much but I do! I also love these sandals, the love-child of Dolce Vita and Vanessa Mooney because they encompass the best of both brands. They're eye-catching with a boho-vibe but super comfortable. I spent Saturday afternoon walking around in them with no complaints.

dress & floral crochet cutout sweatshirt (this one is cute too) Forever 21
leopard print coat & fringed purse Zara

A few weeks ago I went shopping for some new clothes, finally admitting to myself it's going to take a little longer than I thought to lose these last 12 pounds of pregnancy weight. I'm not sure why it's harder this time around, but it is, so I decided to get a couple new pieces that fit my body as it is now.

There were tons of pretty spring pieces in the stores, this chiffon dress being one of them. The slip that came with it is a questionable length, but nothing a pair of yoga shorts couldn't fix! I love the romantic feeling this dress evokes when layered with the textured sweatshirt. The muted colours, the soft floaty layers, an injection of lace, all together it feels very ballet inspired. When the snow is completely gone I plan on wearing this dress with shoes similar to these dainty ballet flats.

Recently I downloaded the Bloglovin app to my phone and it is seriously the best thing ever! I like it way better than google reader, bookmarks etc. It's easy to organize and save posts and really intuitive to use. I don't know why it took me so long to download the app? I should have started using it way sooner!
