A Cooler Climate…

calls for knitwear and I can’t wait! I love the changing of the seasons and am getting itchy feet to start wearing some cozy knits, in particular a long, snuggly cardigan.

I’m on the hunt for a grey or khaki green one (or maybe both – lets be honest!) as these colours look fab against black / blue / white denim (my winter staples) and I already nabbed this black cable jumper when in Hanmer Springs a couple of weeks back.

Apparently khaki coloured cardigans aren’t so popular though as I could only find the ONE below that was the style I’m after. It is a mighty fine one though thanks to NZ label Moochi – I may have to make the investment…. Seed Heritage does have this khaki coloured jumper that might curb my craving at about a third of the price (and is probably much more likely haha!)PicMonkey Collage 1.

Surprise = Healthy Restrictions!

As I enter my third trimester I can’t help but notice pregnant woman everywhere I go! It’s like when you buy a new car, suddenly it seems like every time you are out on the road you spot someone else driving a vehicle just like you! There are a huge number of celebrities who are also pregnant at the moment and I love the way Gwen Stefani revealed the gender of her unborn bebe with a stylish (of course!) instagram pic…

Shopping is obviously one of my favourite past times so choosing to have a surprise baby has resulted in a more positive bank balance! I would be completely out of control on the clothing front if we knew what we were having as there are so many gorgeous things out there for both boys and girls. I have managed to restrict myself so far to limited baby clothing purchases that revolve around a black, white and gray colour palette. I am thinking I may need a little shopping nest egg for once bubs arrives though….

Distressed Denim

Loving distressed denim right now (in fact always have, my old favourite Lee denim jacket that I bought years ago is distressed and still going strong).
