Let's Get Physical

Let’s face it, us mums are often too time poor and run off our feet for some of the latest style looks when chasing after our little ones, but that doesn’t mean our fashion has to compromise. Thankfully, active wear has had an overhaul and we can now run around doing everything a busy modern day mum has to juggle in comfort and style. Trends in active wear just seem to be getting cooler, even more on trend, and even pushing the style boundaries. Below we have compiled some of our favourite current pieces.

Workwear Edit - A/W 19

There is something about wearing workwear. When it is well tailored and fits like a glove, it makes you feel confident, feminine and helps you walk into that slightly intimidating situation with a few less nerves. The ‘power suit’ is aptly named.

Recently, Sarita and I were invited to celebrate the launch of Karen Millen’s Autumn Winter Collection. We both chose our favourite looks which was not an easy task as I absolutely loved it all! .We learned that their tailoring process undergoes stringent tests, including fitting each garment around 8-10 times to ensure the fit is perfect. I think this makes a big difference in creating garments that flatter the body and make you feel great.

I have collated some of my favourite workwear looks this season. Covering a range of price points, with both conservative and fashion looks there is something for everyone.

Springtime Sleepwear Edit

With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to put away our flannelette pyjamas or in my case, extra large daggy sweater and tracksuits (hubby will be happy to see me out of my baggies), and into something a little lighter, and much prettier! Nice sleepwear is a must for new mums and the styles we have selected below would all be amazing presents for mums-to-be.

With Spring approaching, we have compiled a few of our favourite pieces of floral sleepwear, from budget friendly to splurge worthy, for those who prefer sleepwear that come in cool fashion/outerwear shapes like jumpsuits and bomber jackets, or those who prefer the more traditional nightie and suit, we have you covered!

It's Bootie Season

If there’s one thing I never regret buying, it’s a good pair of ankle boots. They are an absolute staple in my wardrobe and not just for winter. They see me through the summer months teamed with flowing white dresses and denim skirts with tees. You really can’t be without an ankle boot in my opinion. This winter it’s all about the ankle boot. 

Anything goes this year as long as it’s ankle! From elasticated boots, fabric pull on styles, pointed toes, even cowboy styles are making a comeback! Metallic, silver and sparkling are showing up on every catwalk and are so much fun. Red boots are also huge and can lift any outfit and add a gorgeous pop of colour to an otherwise all black outfit. There’s just something effortlessly cool about the ankle boot and I’m not afraid to spend that little bit extra for quality and comfort but with so many styles out there, we’ve compiled our list of must have boots for winter to suit all budgets.

Hooray for High Tea

Dressed by Frankie & Co

Not many things in life make you feel quite as ladylike as meeting your girlfriends for an afternoon of high tea. Nobody does high tea better than The Langham Hotel in Melbourne.

We were invited by the wonderful Emmylou and chatted all things motherhood, Instagram and fashion as we sipped tea and French champagne and nibbled on not only cucumber sandwiches and scones with jam and lashings of cream, but an undeniably decadent assortment of dainty treats.

Our menu included

  • Milawa chicken and Granny Smith apple pin wheel with compressed apple
  • Rare roast beef roll with pommery mustard and horseradish mayo, balsamic onion marmalade and water cress
  • Blue swimmer crab remoulade with fennel slaw, yuzu, avocado crème and Yarra Valley salmon roe
  • Yarra valley smoked salmon with calamansi curd, glazed asparagus, and salmon roe on beetroot bagel
  • Citrus cream cheese, mint and lime compressed cucumber triple decker
  • Forest mushroom and truffled parsnip cream pie
  • Braised Wagyu beef fritter with smoked chipotle aioli
  • Gianduja whipped ganache tart with Belgian chocolate supreme, golden hazelnut and 24carat gold leave Raspberry crunch & gel, Wild berry noodle, yoghurt semi fredo, and almond crumble 
  • Victoria coffee and Belgian chocolate éclairs with salted caramel crunch
  • Pink Champagne macaroon with pink champagne and Madagascar vanilla syrup pipette 
  • Warm traditional buttermilk scone served with strawberry and rose petal preserve, lemon curd and clotted cream 

After one too many meringues and mushroom pies, we were lucky enough to do a fashion shoot in the hotel and surrounds wearing the latest range from Frankie and Co.
