I have a confession to make.
On Instagram I asked what other mamas wore whenever they had a chance without the kids. One of the things I like to wear when I’m sans enfants is white jeans.
I’ll be the first to admit that when the Birkenstock trend came out a few years ago, I was bemused. They’re not the sexiest of the shoes, are they? Yet the street style blogs from my Google Reader (#RIP) had image upon image and story upon story from street style blogs with those darn sandals, so there had to something in…
Today the fam-bam had a trip to the Sydney Easter Show planned, and I had already set aside my jeans for that reason. Toting a double pram on public transport, walking for hours, potentially carrying a babe-in-arms for hours called for comfort, and stretchy skinny jeans were the answer.
Autumn has well and truly arrived in Sydney, and I have to say I’m enjoying the reprieve from the humidity.
What’s a gal with a shopping ban to do when she spies something she’d love to try and buy? Obviously, one thing would be to walk away and really think about whether she needs it or not, as of course she has a capsule wardrobe to consider. The other thing would be to DIY that shiz, which I decided to do.
Out of all the items in my essentials capsule, I think the white button down shirt is my absolute favourite. This is a big call, coming from someone who would live in jeans if I had the chance, but nothing beats the simplicity and versatility of this classic piece of clothing.
No sign of autumn in Sydney as yet, although there was a smattering of rain today. Despite the humidity I decided it was a sign to pull out my favourite chambray shirt and rock the ankle boots that I was hankering to wear since I chose them for my autumn capsule.
The humidity in Sydney has got me pining for colder weather and I’m itching to pull out my knits and coats as any cool change in the temperature would mean some relief to this heat!
My return to work date is imminent and in the weeks leading up to it I’ve been grumbling and sighing.
