{Labour} Weekend Wardrobe

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!

Denim Days

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…

Weekend Wardrobe

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!!

Current Fashion Faves

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.

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).

Kitsch or Cool? Part Deux

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!
