Mint

When it comes to clothes, I’ll admit, I can get a little obsessed,  I may be prone to jumping on the odd bandwagon and going for quite the ride.. My current obsession? Mint.

It all started when I spied a baby girl wearing a gorgeous mint green cardigan, I get a little weary of the sea of pink that is usually the norm for baby girls, so I sourced some mint green wool and asked my very clever mum to get knitting.  

The mint cardigan that started it all

In the meantime, a trip to Melbourne led me to another obsession of mine, Gap, where I picked up a lovely mint green cardigan for myself, but it didn’t stop there, I had to have some mint green jeans to add to my ever growing collection of coloured Gap jeans (you can read about that obsession here).  Then just today as I was doing a quick lap of Kmart (of all places) a mint green t-shirt caught my eye, it was only $3.. How could I walk away?

What I love about mint is that it follows one of the most basic style rules, it matches my eyes (you can read more about that here), it’s fresh and perfect for spring and it goes so well with all my favourite cool colours; pink, navy and silver.

Do you have a fashion obsession? Please share!

My baby girl

It’s been far too long since I’ve blogged, over 5 months in fact. I’ve been back to reading blogs lately (this isn’t a lot else to do at 2am) and which has inspired me. Besides, despite being so busy now I sometimes forget to wee, my love for fashion and style is still going strong.  I have never claimed to be a fashionista and 5 inch heels will never feature in this blog, what I do know is that if I look good, I feel good and some days that’s important.

So what has been keeping me from blogging? One very beautiful little lady, Freya May, born 9 May. Here I am less than 24 hours before she arrived.




I can’t guarantee I'll become any more regular (surely I can't be any less regular!) and I can’t promise I'll be posing for photos any time soon (at least until I bid farewell to some stubborn baby bulge) but I am committing to blogging again, because I miss it. I hope you have missed me too!
