The third round up of a new series where I look back over the past month’s style posts and fashion tidbits and provide a snapshot of the best August had to offer! There was a focus on cosy knitwear as we farewell the colder season for another year here in Sydney. Spring has definitely sprung here as we’ve been served some lovely sunny days recently.

On the work front, I’ve been feeling a little burnt out and haven’t taken any time off since Christmas so I’ve booked some much-needed time off to take in September. It’s a bit strange considering I’m not intending to go anywhere (apart from grocery runs and dropping the kids off at school, we’re still doing everything from home), but I am looking forward to not sitting at my desk for the week! I’m hoping a bit of self-care and relaxation will do me some good.

This month, I share a glimpse into a typical day in our family with my “A Day in the Life of Me” post as well as some family rituals that we’ve been enjoying.

There’s a new styling series on the blog: I’m going back to where it all began and sharing my take on styling wardrobe staples – One Item, 4 Ways. I kicked things off with a light neutral coloured blazer and my favourite pair of white jeans.
