Jeanswest Spring Collection

Alternating spells of Springtime and spells of Wintertime seems to be the go in Melbourne at the moment.  Thankfully last weekend was a spell of Spring weather with clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine - hip hooray! The perfect chance to break out my lily white legs and wear my new printed playsuit from Jeanswest.  This really is such an easy and relaxed piece to wear, and really practical with its loose fit and pockets.

Jeanswest have such a lovely Spring Collection, crisp whites, blue and chambray mixed with nautical stripes and pops of yellow.  Natural fabrics are the hero this collection with linen, cotton and lyocell featured throughout the range.

Bamboo lazy pants- Doodlebug
Top- Bonds
Shirt- Cotton On

I realised is has been a couple of months since Ash has guess starred on my blog.  He is now 2.5 years old and just a bit of a dude don't you think! Especially in these very cool Timberland boots, how much attitude to they add to his outfit!!

I have been eyeing off these wheat colour Timberland boys boots for Ash for a while but felt I couldn't justify the cost...i.e. $150 at the store I looked at on Chapel St.  But at Get The Label the price was just too good, only $66 which makes for an incredible saving for such an iconic boot!

I can tell you Ash has been through so many cheaper shoe options from Kmart, BigW, Cotton On, etc but they really don't cut the mustard.  They wear through very quickly and I am constantly second guessing myself on the fit and whether they provide the necessary support.  With that in mind I recently had Ash properly measured and bought a pair of Clarks shoes, which became his everyday shoe.  I can tell you that those shoes cost a lot more than these boots, but the price is well worth it to have peace of mind knowing you are looking after your little ones feet.  Also now that I know Ash's foot size I have more confidence buying online, and buying online at Get The Label means you can buy well made, supportive shoes for your little one that will go the distance at a good price!

Little Bird

I've recently been using these beautiful organic products by Little Bird,  namely their Organic Paw Balm and Organic Coconut Moisturising Butter.  

The lip balm has a delicious coconut flavour and is completely free of petrochemicals, unlike many others currently on the market.  The moirturising butter combines 100% organic ingredients including coconut oil, caster oil and beeswax, and has an amazing natural coconut fragrance.  This butter is quickly absorbed and adds a beautiful glow to your skin.  And of course, being organic and chemical free I am very happy to use this product on my two year old son Ash.

Available at a variety of online health stores, I've also spotted these lovely products at Coles.

I was invited by Collins234 Boutique Place to put together a Spring racing outfit from retailers in their centre.  With the fabulous selection available, right in the heart of Melbourne city my task could not have been easier.
