Date night


Holiday RomanceoBroderie Dress- Portmans (here)
Heels- Topshop (old, similar here)
'Michelle' necklace- thanks to oNecklace

I had my hair cut, and thought I best make the most of an excellent hair situation by wearing a new dress and heading out!  The babysitter fell through, so all three of us went out for an early dinner.  A lovely Summer evening and I'm always up for an excuse to dress up.

This dress, bought full price (!), is now on sale :/ I can't spot the navy option online however I saw plenty in store just this week, also the coral and white options. Despite already having done a bit of damage to the credit card with the Boxing Day sales I'm really tempted to get this dress in white as well... it would look so good with tan wedges... hmmmmm, actually so would the coral!

I will also point out my name necklace.  I love this look, of course originally worn by Carrie in the Sex in the City.  This one is from oNecklace who has have a range of very affordable personalised jewellery.

Finally, I hope you all had a really happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!!!!

Heels- Boohoo (similar here)
Basket of Dreams cuff- thanks to Najo Jewellery
Ray Ban sunnies- thanks to Vision Direct Australia

So last week it was Ash and his Ray Ban's via Vision Direct Australia, and now it's my turn!  This time adding to my growing collection of Ray Ban aviators with this all black polarized version.  I love this look and these will definitely be on high rotation, plus the polarized lens makes everything look extra amazing.  Vision Direct stocks 180 brands and 80,000 so they are bound to have you favourite in stock and for the best price.

On another note, how cute is this denim jumpsuit with it's cheeky cut out back and wide cropped legs!! I wore it all day Sunday with flat sandals and then popped on these heels for the photos for a more dressed up look.   Plus it has the deepest,biggest pockets which are pretty handy when your son likes to carry a small fleet of planes around with him ;)  And yes the zipper does go all the way up at the back, but clearly I got distracted mid zip and my photographer, i.e. husband didn't notice. lol

It also comes in a lighter denim wash and black but those were sold out in my size.  A white version is also available.

Salt Water Sandals x Bstore

Top- Sportsgirl
Denim skirt- Portmans
Watch- Daniel Wellington
Top- BigW
Shorts- Cotton On Kids

Here I am with my mini-me, my two year old son Ash, and wearing our matching Salt Water sandals!  I have to say I love these sandals, made from leather they mold to your feet for comfort and fit, and they LOVE getting wet!!  Toddlers LOVE getting wet too so it has to be perfect toddler sandal.  You can also throw them in the washing machine, these sandals are that tough.

Salt Water sandals have been around for over 70 years, which proves they are such a classic style. And Ash and I are both getting heaps of wear out of them. Available from Bstore in a range of neutral colours- black, navy, tan, silver, gold, and white.  I went for the tan for both of us, but must admit it was a tricky choice.

Size wise, I followed the size guide on the Bstore website and that worked out just right.

Vision Direct Australia

RayBan sunglasses- thanks to Vision Direct Australia
Tee- Doodlebug

I think it's pretty obvious I'm a big fan of the Ray Ban Aviator, so it will be no real surprise that this style is my first pick for my two year old son Ashley too! And how cool does he look in his little Ray Ban Juniors, like a real little rock star!! #longhairdontcare

Floressa Landon tank dress- thanks to Queen Bee
Shoes- Converse (here)
Jacket- Jeanswest (last season, similar here)
Watch- thanks to Jord Wood Watches
'Michelle' necklace- thanks oNecklace

This cute tank dress is new in at Queen Bee Maternity, just in time for Summer.  Straight up I will say I AM NOT pregnant, however having been pregnant not that long ago, well 2 years and 8 months to be precise, I can tell you this dress would've been SO perfect.  I had a black dress and a blue striped dress in a similar style which I wore to death. The hot pink and white stripes makes this dress such a fun option.  Also, I am no longer breastfeeding, although I did for two years, so with that in mind I can highly recommend this dress for you breastfeeding mamas. With snap buttons at the shoulders and an inner crop layer it would make discreet breastfeeding easy.  If you are interested in sizes, I am wearing a size XS and am usually a size 6.  As you can see it is quite loose on me here so plenty of room for belly!

Despite it being the end of November, it's still quite cool here in Melbourne so I have layered this dress today with a utility jacket, and kept it simple with white Converse.

Jord Wood Watches

Jeans- Jeanswest
Top- Asos
Shoes- Witchery
Cora maple & silver watch- thanks to Jord
'Michelle' necklace- thanks to oNecklace

Timeless and beautiful are the best words to describe this luxury wood watch by Jord Wood Watches.  Being beautifully hand crafted from sustainable wood certainly makes this watch a really eye catching piece, with every watch having its own unique wood grain.  This particular style is also available in a range of wood and face colour variations (Zebrawood & Turquoise, Kora Koa & Rose Gold, and Maple & Lavendar), however there was no doubt that the Maple & Silver was for me.  Perfect with its Swarovski crystal time markers and scratch proof sapphire crystal glass face.

One thing I really love about this watch is that it doesn't require batteries, featuring a self-winding automatic mechanical movement, which you can actually glimpse through the face and rear of the watch.

The stainless steel butterfly clip clasp is another great feature, easy to do up and it feels very secure on your wrist.  Jord offer a sizing option which is as simple as providing your wrist size upon purchase, or you can get it sized at your local jeweller which is what I did.

Jord have quite a variety of men's and women's watch styles available, with something for everyone.  Their latest ebony and copper men's watch is a real standout! Free shipping world wide is another fantastic offer from Jord if you were thinking a wooden watch might be a great Christmas gift, Jord have a great holiday return / exchange policy.  Watches also come in a beautiful wooden gift box.
