Work it...at Work





I'm sure many of you have spotted the new Target Australia ads on television lately featuring one of the worlds hottest fashion names, Gok Wan who has been showing us all his key fashion pieces to look fresh and classy in the workplace.  On the Target website Gok as put together three 'Gok Loves Work it...at Work' looks- I love the monochrome palate, and the pops of colour are perfect.  I'm looking forward to more of Gok's style advice in the future!

Along with the theme of 'Work it...at Work' I thought I'd put together two looks using my favourite Target work wear pieces, based on a basic black shift dress and patent black court shoe.  
Which look do you love best?

Sapling Child

Dove grey body suit & pants- thanks to Sapling Child

My 4 month old son, Ash is the star of today's post, and here he is modelling some beautiful outfits from Australian baby-wear company Sapling ChildSapling Child currently stock sizes 000-0 and the entire range is 100% organic cotton.  The designs are such fun with the most adorable prints!

In massively exciting news THE Duchess of Cambridge ordered some outfits for the royal baby from Sapling Child so it rather fabulous to think by bub is in the same threads as the royal bub ;)  Read all about it HERE. I wonder which outfits Kate picked!!

I've also added a new heading at the top 'Baby Style File', so any blog posts featuring Ashley can be seen there.  Ash will continue to make only an occasional appearances here on the blog, but he does feature far more often in my Instagram feed if you are interested.

Queenbee

Heels- Aldo
Pants- Ojay

I don't wear nursing tops very often, and generally manage with a bonds maternity singlet layered with a normal top- but seriously a nursing top like this from one Queenbee makes life so much easier!  This is such a flatterning wrap style and so perfect for any mums and expectant mums out there- made of beautiful soft jersey and most importantly machine washable!!  The size here is an XS so you can see there is plenty of room for a baby bump, and after bub is born its a nice relaxed fit to hide that muffin top ;)

On another note, check out that ring! Its the classic Nirvana ring by Swarovski who are currently hosting a competition to win one of these- check out their Instagram page for details.

To make this outfit more practical I just switched the heels for some silver ballet flats- it looks great with blue or white jeans too.

Morgan & Taylor

 
Scarf- thanks to Morgan & Taylor (availale at Myer)
Heels- thanks to PeepToe Shoes
Blazer- Cue (similar here)
Jeans- Zara (similar here and here)
Top- Portmans (similar here)

How chunky and fabulous is this scarf by Morgan & Taylor! It means on these milder, sunny Winter days I can get away with a lighter jacket as long as my neck is nice and warm and cosy.  It's a shame the grass is hiding my shoes because they are a bit fabulous- a deep blue suede with silver toe caps.

Sorry these jeans are making another appearance, they are one of my only pairs that I can fit into comfortably at the moment and I am SO not buying new pants!  Access to more of my wardrobe is certainly incentive to keep on losing that baby weight ;)

Black Sheep

 Necklace- thanks to Sistaco
Jeans- Zara (similar)
Heels- Tony Bianco (similar)

It's been so lovely to see the sun in Melbourne this last week, and we've had some glorious, milder Winter days- particularly fabulous for Ash and my daily walks (check out my Instagram for pics).

I'm all about dressing practically these days, and a nice warm woolen knit and boyfriend jeans are so easy and comfy to wear.  Given the sunshiny-ness I decided to sneak out some sandals for these pics, granted, the heels aren't quite practical but they look fabulous and its not difficult to slip them off and pop on some flats for when some serious walking is in order.

This Icebreaker knit I'm wearing is actually back-to-front reversible so you can have a v-neck or a scoop neck.  Made from 100% merino wool its part of the Icebreaker premium collection of Black Sheep knitwear- SO lovely and warm.  This knit also comes in a striking magenta colour.

Play, Brow & Lash Bar- GIVEAWAY [Melbourne]

So why the scary close up of my eyes?

Well, I recently had the pleasure receiving a lovely full set of natural eyelash extensions thanks to the threading and lash extension specialists Play, Brow & Lash Bar located at 316 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy in Victoria.

Eyelash extensions are simply the most fabulous things!! They instantly brighten up your face and for me they have meant doing away with all eye makeup- a huge time saver for this busy new mum.  In the pic above I'm just wearing a bit of bronzer on my cheeks, no other makeup at all!  I certainly felt like I was in the hands of experts (an absolute must for eyelash extensions) at Play, and hardly felt a thing as my lashes were applied. My extensions are about 1/3 longer than my natural eyelashes and made of silk, keeping that natural everyday look.  

Mention 'Michelle's Style File' to receive 10% off any service or product.


Now to something for you, my lovely readers...
