THE USUAL DIPTYCH



Just the usual sequence of events. Warm milk in a coffee cup. Cold milk on the table.

you know it, right?



In other news, I've just arrived back from 4 beautiful days in QLD with my Sisters. I'm looking forward to finding a bit of spare time (because that exists, does't it) to share some details. I attended Pro Blogger for the first time ever and it did not disappoint.

Hope you've had a beautiful weekend! Talk soon!

STYLE FILE | JAPAN




Mmm dreaming of a holiday.. again!  It would be lovely to go as far as Japan - with it's serene forests, zen interiors and stunning indigo..  But alas my cup of green tea will have to suffice for today. We shall meet one day, beautiful land of the rising sun.

WEARING | MULBERRY LOUNGE PANTS AND RUFFLE HEM BLOUSE




As a stay at home mum, I can't get enough of seriously comfortable clothing. I feel like I'm winning if I can dress myself once in the morning and then drop the kids at Pre School, do the grocery shopping, slump on the lounge, hang out the washing and pick the kids up again without having to change.

Most of the time I'll pull some jeans and a striped tee of the floor but now that Spring is on it's way I'll be opting for Mulberry Lounge Pants and floaty tops.

I'm slightly in love with my Ruffle Hem Blouses for their floaty fit - just the right amount of room through the middle but still nice and slim in the arm. The pink is a super soft blush, very subtle and femme.

THE PEOPLE STYLE | ELLEN




Ellen styles her favourite dress from a funky Melbourne boutique.


look 1 | Shoes bought by Mum for a wedding in 1994
look 2 |  Glasses from SpecSavers; jeans from Cocolatte; Doc Martins from online store
look 3 | Shorts and shoes from Salvos; vest from Victoria market stall

I'm lucky enough to be related to this beautiful human being!  Ell is so much fun (when she tears herself away from her latest novel..!).  She's a sensitive soul who cares deeply about the state of this world.  She's got a knack for hunting down the best coffee in town, wherever she is - perhaps due to the fact that she's made a home in so many different places over the last few years.

From Ellen:

How do you spend your time

I love to cruise around on my bike with my little dog running beside me or in the basket. Or going on long walks/drives discovering awesome secret places… Or hanging out at cafés (cafés being vital to my lifestyle/social life)... Or chilling at home with a pot of tea and a good book.

What is your personal Style

Maybe a simplified kind of boho/punk with a dash of androgyny and a smidge of oriental influence??? I’m not sure – I really like men’s shirts, docs, and woolly jumpers, but I absolutely cannot walk past a beautiful colourful pattern. And I’m all about the comfy.

What do you love about this item

It makes my eyes so happy to look at it! It’s just so pretty! But without being overly girly-girl. Plus it’s so super comfy and flowy - it’s like I’m not wearing anything (But marginally warmer and less naked).

Where do you love to shop

Second-hand shops in little towns, garbage bags in friends/family’s garages, side of the road throw-out piles (they’re free!), and just occasionally something will catch my eye in the window or bargain rack of an actual clothes shop.

What is the most important element in an item

Do I feel good when I wear it? ie. Does it have positive associations? Is it going to comfortable to wear all day? Does it make me feel like I look good?

What is your favourite season

Summer. The sun makes me feel so toasty and relaxed, and you can wear the most comfy, flowy clothes or run around half naked and it’s all good, because it’s soooo hot…!

What is one thing more important than fashion

People. And animals. And the environment.  That’s one BIG thing – like the cycle of life.

and one more just for good measure..
