Shirt- Cotton On
Necklace- Sportsgirl 
Jeans- Glassons

Loving my new Nixon watch, actually my husband loves it too so if I'm not wearing it, its pretty likely he will! The neon second hand is what really caught my eye, AND its 100 metres waterproof so it doesn't matter if my baby has a good chew of it ;)

This watch is from online retailer Surfstitch, who luckily for me had 20% off everything last week so I got this watch at a fantastic price.  They have a huge range of watches and also offer FREE delivery and FREE returns.

To the rest of my outfit, this is now pretty much my Spring time uniform.  Jeans and shirt, I've worn heels for these pics but for the rest of the day running errands and playing with my baby, I just swapped the heels for my old battered Converse.

Sunnies- Rayban (similar here)

Stylish nursing dresses sure are hard to come by, so I know this lovely, comfy jersey number by Soon Maternity is going to prove extremely useful throughout this Spring and Summer.  Feeding access is actually from the side through the armhole, if that makes sense- there are picture on the Soon Maternity website if I haven't described that very well. 

I've worn the dress very simply today with these flat black sandals, a tan bag and a colourful scarf for a bit of interest.  However, this dress could easily be dressed up a little more with wedges and a belt, or swap the sandals for ballet flats for a more Parisian chic look.  It is also available in grey marle.

I've also added a new heading up the top 'Nursing Style File', any outfit that provides easy nursing access will now automatically appear there :)

Over the last few weeks I've had the absolute pleasure of using these beautiful products from Australian skin care company Sodashi, and I can most certainly highly recommend them.  The cleanser is a lovely creamy texture and has the most beautiful refreshing scent of lime, leaving one feeling fresh and cleansed, and your skin soft.  The moisturiser I found to be a nice light one which was quickly absorbed into the skin.  Finally the mask, full of wonderful things designed to re-energise, firm and tone the skin, really does what it says it will do.  Even my husband agreeing that my skin looked so refreshed after use!  

The most wonderful thing about these products is that they are chemical, preservative and fragrance free!  Sodashi have managed to combine natural ingredients with anti-aging, nourishing and balancing properties to create natural skin care solutions. They have quite and extensive range that is well worth a look.

The beautiful packaging is also worth a mention, these dark glass bottles look beautiful on the bathroom cabinet!

Another guest appearance from my 6 month old son Ash, who I think is cuter every day!  Here he is wearing these darling little felt lined slippers handmade by Happy Solez, still a fraction big but they will be so perfect as his first walkers.

Clearly Contacts

Today I thought I would share my favourite sunglasses from the great range on offer at Clearly Contacts. If you have followed my blog for a while you may have noticed that Ray Ban's are my absolute must have, and I am seen wearing them 90% of the time.  In particular the classic aviator and wayfarer styles are ones that I think suit my face shape, and given their popularity over time there is little doubt they suit most of us.  

I'm loving this folding version of the Rayban Wayfarer pictured above, something a little different that is for sure, and no doubt a great conversation piece.  Looking at the aviator styles I constantly switch between gold frames and silver frames.  I love the look of the reflective lens but think the coloured lens version is a bit of fun too.

Another style I am drawn to is the over size rounder styles, like these ones by Alexander McQueen or Balengicia.  A classic black style that will stand the test of time.
