Get the look: The Cartel & Willow Cape Two Ways!

Monday, January 27, 2014

What better way to embrace Australia Day than to support local Australian brands! Cartel & Willow launched their label just last month and yesterday I wore my new 'Pink Shanti Zebra Cape' for the first time. Along with the delicious lolly pink animal print (it comes in other colours too!), I love the lightweight fabric of this piece and it's versatility. So much so that I thought I would show how it can be dressed up and dressed down giving two totally different looks simply by throwing your hair into a pony, changing one item of clothing and slipping off your heels in exchange for your sneakers! 

Get the look!

Dressed down:

Pink Zebra Shanti Cape from Cartel & Willow
My basic white tee was only $3.00 (yes, $3.00!) from Kmart but you can find similar at Witchery.
Metallic 'Amber' sneakers from Seed Heritage
My studded belt is an oldie but you can find similar from The Iconic
My denim cutoffs are also a few season old but you can find similar again also from The Iconic
'Brights Power' nail polish from OPI
Morange lippy from MAC

Get the Look: Bummy yummy Mummy!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Being a busy, full-time stay at home Mumma of two, at the end of most days I feel like I've run a mini marathon (heck, sometimes I feel that way and it's not even lunchtime!) and I know there are many of you who can relate to this! Some mornings, finding the time to piece together an outfit seems almost impossible and after pulling clothes on and off again only to feel 'blurgh' in most of them, I find myself reaching for my trusty leggings and a comfy tee. And who am I kidding, they are more comfortable than anything else in my wardrobe and much more practical with kiddies and all that pram pushing anyway! BUT, who says the 'bummy mummy' option can't also mean the 'yummy mummy' option! You can most definitely feel both comfortable and stylish if you invest in just a few staple items.

So, I thought I'd share with you a few keys pieces in my 'bummy mummy' wardrobe! It pays to invest in a pair of runners/sneakers that are not only comfortable but a pair that you also get excited about wearing! My Mizuno's are by far my favourite pair of runners I have ever owned (both comfort and aesthetically) and the colours really jazz up an otherwise pretty boring outfit. I am also loving my new Seed metallic sneakers! They seem to go with absolutely everything and are super comfy and so easy to slip on when you are rushing out the door! Sports caps are great for those days where I haven't had time to wash my hair and my roots are looking a little oily. The last item on my 'must have' list are my trusty Topshop leggings... they are seriously THE comfiest leggings I have EVER owned (I think I have about 8 pairs) and they are the ONLY leggings I will buy now.

High waisted extra long leggings from Topshop
