Nine Lives

Nine lives sweater- thanks to St Frock
Pants- Cotton On (similar here)
Boots- Joanne Mercer (similar here)

We are smack bang in the middle of Winter, and it is freezing here in Melbourne!  Boots, jumpers and lots of layers are most certainly the way to go.  How fabulous is the touch of leopard print on this jumper, there is a grey version too which I love, maybe even more than the black :)

This is my third Winter with this Icebreaker coat and I can highly recommend it, made from merino wool it has quite a few great features, and although pricey I think it is well worth it as an investment piece.

Mr Fox

Tee- Bonds (here)
Jeans- Kmart (similar here)
Boots- Margaret River Stompers (here)

Autumn really is my favourite time of year.  Everything looks so beautiful, the days are gorgeous and of course who doesn't love a bit of leaf play, made extra fun with a toddler in tow :) But now all too soon Autumn is over and Winter is upon us.  The upside of the cold weather however, is adorable beanies like this 100% merino wool Mr Fox hat by Acorn Kids.  I was having a hard time keeping it on Ash's head on this day, as you can see I would just snap the photo before he pulled it off! Hopefully when the weather gets really cool he'll decide it's best on his head!!

Acorn Kids also have a matching Mr Fox scarf and mittens, and a Mr Wolf hat, scarf and mittens in dark grey.  Too cute for words!

Shirt- Cotton On (similar here)
Cashmere jumper- Target (similar here)
Shoes- PeepToe (similar here, loving these)

The sun has all but disappeared here in Melbourne, and Winter has most certainly set in.  A perfect excuse to layer up in the cosiest of knits, and the warmest of coats.

Ultra Care+ Moisturising System

Lately I've been giving Ultra Care+ Mositurising System a go thanks to Nutrimetics.  It's essentially a light, oil-free serum that I've been using morning and night underneath my moisturiser.  Being in my mid-30s I'm really starting to notice the laugh lines around my eyes so am seriously looking for any help I can get in keeping my skin supple and hydrated.  Well that is exactly what this little beauty is clinically proven to do, and in turn makes the surface of the skin smoother and the appearance of fine lines diminished- yes please!

Acorn Kids

Jeans- Kmart (similar here)
Tee- Bonds (here)
Boots- Margaret River Stompers (here)

How delightful are these vest and gloves!! 100% Australian Merino Wool too and both my Melbourne based company Acorn Kids who speicalise in kids hats, gloves and mittens. We've got a few Acorn Kids pieces for Ash now and they are the most beautiful quality, prices very reasonable, and extremely cute!

I'll give a shout out to the little boots too, because they took some serious hunting down!  After googling, and googling leather boots for toddlers I finally discovered these ones hand made by a lady in Western Australia. They are fantastic and I think I'll probably get another pair for Ash in a different colour.

The pics with the meerkats were taken at Melbourne Zoo, we joined on Ash's first birthday and go most weeks :)

Kish & Evie

 Dotted love scarf- thanks to Kish & Evie
Tee- Cotton On (similar here)
Jumper- Zara (old, similar here)
JBoots- Tony Bianco (here, similar here)

This is what I wore last weekend for a visit to the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, for anyone with kids, the Pastello exhibition is good fun- free too!

These fabulous boots were my Mothers Day present, when choosing an over the knee boot I was looking for something very classic, and also FLAT to make sure I can wear them for quite a few seasons yet.  I'm so tempted by high heeled versions but now as a busy working mum it was simply not a good wardrobe investment.

This beautiful hand printed cotton scarf is by Melbourne company Kish and Evie and I have been wearing it heaps! It adds the perfect pop of colour to any outfit.  Plus I have a pair of heels in the same shade of pink, so the addition of the shoes and scarf to any of my work outfits works beautifully.   Kish and Evie also offer free international shipping.

EMU walkers

Zip wondersuit- Bonds (here)
Puffa vest- (old, similar here)

Here is my little guy Ash, out of bed and ready to start the day wearing his new little EMU ugg boots.  How cute are they!!! I couldn't resist the giraffe, but BStore also have a lady bird, clown fish, monkey and shark options available.  BStore have a massive range of comfy, good for your feet shoe options for the whole family.

Ash LOVES his puffer vests and will put one on everyday! I think he'd even wear one to bed if he could :)  Who'd have thought toddlers could be so particular!!
