Everlane Way High Skinny Jeans

I’ve been really enjoying our mild summer here in Sydney. It means my jeans and knits are getting a bit of use. I’m sporting the new Everlane Way High Skinny Jeans in Vintage Blue – one of their latest denim styles that feature a high rise (11.7” to be exact) . If you’re on the petite side (like me), or you have short legs (also me), wearing high rise anything is a great way to elongate your legs. The majority of my bottoms are high rise for this very reason. I share my thoughts on sizing and the newest Everlane denim style.

My Top Tips for Caring for Your Handbags

When it comes to spending money on items in my wardrobe, handbags are the one item that I’m willing to splurge on. I don’t consider mine to be a vast collection, but it’s a healthy one that I’ve built gradually over the years. If chosen well, designer handbags have the ability to retain their value over time particularly if you show them some love and take good care of them. That being said, handbags tend to fall under the radar when it comes to needing some TLC. They’re unassumingly durable so it’s hard to imagine that they need any sort of maintenance. Be that as it may, a little of love goes a long way, so I’m sharing with you my tips to take care of your handbags so they last.

Clothing Items I Returned in 2020 and Why They Didn’t Work

My blog is my happy place, so naturally, I focus on the pieces that I enjoy wearing and the items that suit me. That said, I don’t always make the right purchasing decisions and more often than not, will take advantage of a store’s friendly returns policy if things don’t work out for me. I share a few of these mishaps over on my Instagram stories but I thought I’d delve into a few recent ones here because I figure it’s always a bit of fun to read about the things that don’t work out and the reasons why.

My Style Goals for 2021 + Setting Clothing Budgets

The beginning of each year is always abuzz with excitement, and I’m definitely feeling it this year thanks to the annus horribilis that was 2020. Turning over a leaf in a new year is always a great way to set goals for the year ahead – whether they be financial, career or style focused. I’ve given consideration to all of these, and in this post, I’m going to share with you my style goals for the year. Before setting any style goals, I always have my financial goals set for the year – it’s something my husband and I square away at the start of every year. With dependants and more responsibilities in the mix, I can confidently say that I know where all our money is going which helps us inch closer to realising our goals, and most importantly – provides clarity as to how much I can spend on clothing for the year!

Style Diaries: December 2020

My last monthly style round-up for 2020 and what a year to farewell! December saw me reflect on my favourites of the year, including my best and worst luxury purchases. Admittedly the entire month was a bit of a blur and while Christmas didn’t quite go to plan as we were unable to travel interstate to spend it with family (as I’m sure many of you can relate), I’m grateful that we were able to celebrate Christmas with a big feast at home. I hope you were all able to enjoy the holiday season as much as you could. I feel so thankful for our health and happiness at the end of an uncertain year. Sending much love to those who have struggled during the year. Here’s to 2021.

My husband and I have enjoyed some much needed time off work with our boys over the Christmas and New Year period.
