Why #everydaystyle?

Helloooo hump day!

Today I thought I’d talk about the Instagram hashtag I’ve come to love.

#everydaystyle is the brainchild of super blogger Nikki Parkinson – Styling You , a way of connecting with other like minded ladies who share their daily outfits.

The Month That Was!


  • 22 outfits
  • 8 blog posts
  • 260 km of driving, give or take
  • Countless hours spent taking and editing over 600 photo’s (perfectionist much!)
  • Kid wrangling and bribing…
  • Convincing hubby he absolutely should appear in a blog post (and suffer a barrage of teasing from male friends and admiration of female friends!)

Week Four – Family Style

Hello fashionista’s!

Today I’m bringing you great affordable family fashion. I have to say it was nice to be on the other side of the camera for a change snapping pic’s of the kids!

My not so little kids are actually quite easy to please in the clothing department. Miss 14 shares my love of vintage / op-shopped clothes and doesn’t tend to lean toward labels…. yet! And Mr 11 is the most relaxed kid when it comes to clothes and is still quite happy for me to put outfits together for him.

Week Three – His and Her’s

I love my husband!

I know it’s a very soppy way to start a blog post, a post relating to fashion no less but I just had to say it. He’s a good egg, agreeing to be in this post when he would have much preferred to stay inside and watch the footy, especially given the horrendous weather we had in Perth over the weekend!

So yeah, I love him!

Week Two – It’s All White

It’s Friday #tgif

Another week races by at lightening speed and here we are!

Usually when I think of dressing for winter I’m thinking black and grey with pops of colour. This year I’m noticing a big trend toward neutral and pastel colours, so for today’s post I thought I would have some fun with white.

Week Two – Long Line Vests feat. Katies Fashion

Week Two – Long Line Vests

Good morning Tuesday!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend celebrating Mothers Day with the special mumma in your life!

I’m talking long line vests today. There is a lot of this style coming through for winter especially in grey. For today’s post I’m wearing the Katies Fashion shawl collar vest $89.95. The good news is, I have word from Katies this piece is being replenished in stores and online next week so make sure you keep an eye out as it sells like hotcakes!! Below I’ve included links to similar styles I have found.

Week One – Shades of Grey & Khaki

Hello gorgeous people and Happy Monday, let’s get the party started!

Today is a very exciting day for me. As I announced in Friday’s post I am partnering with Cockburn Gateway Shopping City as style blogger for their Winter Fashion Campaign during the month of May.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to bring you the first of many looks over the next four weeks. I thought I would start the month off on a casual note and share two key items that will be must have’s for your Winter wardrobe.

First up the Sleeveless Knit…

There are a few reasons I chose this particular knit….

  1.  I really like this style of neckline.
  2. It is sleeveless which is perfect for the trans – seasonal weather we are having in Perth at the moment and easy to add layers to when the weather gets colder.
  3. I love that the back is a longer length, great for covering up anything you may want to hide!
  4. Lastly it’s a great neutral colour to have in your wardrobe. Easy to dress up or keep casual and grey is definitely on trend at the moment

I decided to go with really simple accessorizing to complete the look and chose this beautiful Snakeskin Cross Body Bag from Colette along with a silver cuff bracelet also from Colette. I like the way the mix of silver and gold tones look with the grey. The shoes are cute ankle booties from Crossroads and black pants with zip detail are from Paper Scissors.

{Ally Fashion High Neck Knit $29.99 / Paper Scissors Black Pant $19.95 / Crossroads Ankle Booties $34.95 / Colette Peta XBody Bag $19.95 & Cuff Bracelet $12.95 }

And now for look number two featuring another winter staple…

The Khaki Jacket!

Khaki in any way, shape or form is big this season! There are lot’s of ways to incorporate khaki into your wardrobe.  I’m wearing this lovely lightweight jacket from Chicabooti with striped t-shirt from Ally Fashion, clutch from Paper Scissors and check scarf from Big W .

And of course casual chic wouldn’t be complete without comfy lace up’s like these ones from Best & Less!

{Chicabooti Khaki Jacket $50.00/ Paper Scissors Black Pant $19.95 & Clutch $20.00 / Ally Fashion Striped Tee $9.99 / Best & Less Sneakers $12.00 / Big W Scarf $15.00}

And that’s a wrap!
