Yesterday was a public holiday (Labour Day) here in NZ and unfortunately the weather in Christchurch was a little miserable. It did clear up enough in the afternoon for us to get out in the garden, and the mornings wet weather encouraged a brunch date at our local cafe Fava.
I am in LOVE with my new Adriano Goldschmied jeans that I picked up while in Perth – they honestly feel like I am wearing leggings, in fact they are so comfortable that I wore them on the back to back flights home. Along with the amazing fit they are a fantastic colour and have just the right amount of distressing. Expect to see these a lot!

I’m on the hunt for some boyfriend style distressed denim shorts for the summer. I’m not keen on anything that is too short, rather liking the oversized look instead. Here is a round up of the options I’ve found so far at varying price levels…
1. Black Orchid Boyfriend Short – Revolve
2. Blue Black Outlaws – One Teaspoon
3. Lee Relaxed Iggy Short – Surf Stitch
4. Rag and Bone Boyfriend Short – Superette
5. River Island Rip and Repair Denim Short – Asos
6. Cuff Denim Short – Sportsgirl
After some very kind words from my gorgeous friend Swenia, I am bringing back posts of the occasional outfit I put together on the weekend. I hope you enjoy catching a glimpse of my own personal style.
For my Sunday lunch look I have taken inspiration from the mood board I posted recently here. You can’t go wrong with stripes, denim and a little animal print. My faux vest was a bargain ($60!) from the discount website Onceit, if you aren’t already a member be sure to sign up and check in daily to see their new deals.
The photos prove that this mumma needs to go treat herself to a mani!!
Distressed Jeans – Asos (I busted the rips in the knees a little bigger)

Palm Tee (worn underneath) – All About Eve – Edge Clothing
Faux Fur Vest – Sold out but similar here
Leopard Print Flats – Witchery
Anchor Studs – Karen Walker
Although the last couple of days here in Christchurch have been warm, winter is definitely around the corner. I am ready to rug up and layer my daytime looks to beat the chill.
Here is a round up of looks that have been catching my eye for the cooler months – namely neutrals, ripped denim, black, leather and stripes.

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).

With Spring weather upon us layers are ideal to add a bit of extra warmth if necessary. Try tying a check shirt around you waist to add a pop of colour to a classic weekend look of jeans and white tee.

As per yesterdays post I really don’t think I’ll be joining the dungarees bandwagon. I have never believed that just because a few celebrities and models are wearing something that everyone should!
Fashion trends circle in and out of wardrobes around the world every few decades. I’m sure many mums out there have informed you that they ‘used to own a belt / top / skirt / pair of shoes just like that’ as you hand over your hard-earned cash for the latest ‘it’ item.
Don’t get me wrong I’m all for trends and trendsetters and I will often join the bandwagon but will do so at a moderate price level. If it’s potentially a fad that will only be in for one season my advice is spend your money wisely, look for a cheaper version that won’t leave you disappointed when the next trend cycle hits!
