It’s been a month since I deleted my Instagram account and I’ve had some reflection about doing this.
Category - Life
I deleted my Instagram account last week.
Starting a sort-of regular series of posts where I share the truth of what happens behind the scenes of my blog and/or social media posts!
So I’d like to preface this post by saying this is more of an explanation (and an apology of sorts) for not being able to blog as much as I (and hopefully you) would like. Continue reading
For the last few weeks I have been speaking to a good friend of mine who I haven’t seen in a long time – with one of us having kids (me) and the other living in another country (her) it’s been hard to catch up, even online. We’ve been talking about the business of blogging while she’s in town. Continue reading
Lovely friends, I’m having a little blogging break over the next two weeks as I’ll be spending some quality time with the family in the sunny isles of the Philippines!
Happy New Year! How was your holiday break?
I have’t been doing very well in the NaBloMoPo challenge – no posts for the last three days.
The weekend has given the opportunity to take stock of what’s happening in the world; give thanks for the peace and safety of the country in which I live, for my family and the love we share; and remind myself to embrace the little things.
Business as usual on the 5 feet of style front come Monday.
What have I signed up for?!
So it’s NaBloPoMo month and I thought I’d take up the challenge and write a blog post every day for the month of November. What the what?! With the kiddos I’m having enough trouble getting to the computer as it is.
For the first day of this challenge I thought I’d adapt this interview of Nicole Richie from Popsugar to give you a little insight on who/what 5 feet of style is.
Today I’m wearing…
Dagwear – an old asos maternity dress that I altered to become a maxi skirt (this bakery is closed) and a nursing top. Definitely not glamorous! Perhaps this wasn’t the day to answer this question?
I heart Australia because…
Of its incredible weather (perhaps not today with the hail), the top shelf coffee, the diversity of cultures, and the laidback nature of life here.
My handbag of choice is…
My Q mini Natasha bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs. I don’t carry much for myself other than a wallet, mobile phone, lipgloss and sunglasses, and this bag is the perfect size as well as keeping my hands free to tote infant/toddler/gigantic diaper bag.

Australian style is…
Like the culture, pretty laidback and like Nicole says, seemingly effortless. To me, Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton of theyallhateus epitomise this.
I rarely leave home without…
My Motorola moto g phone.
Right now, my favourite item in my wardrobe is…
My rag & bone ripped boyfriend jeans. I bought them off gumtree and they are the softest, most comfortable denim I have ever worn.
yep this is me! from my instagram account 5.foot.style
The last thing I bought was…
A second-hand Esprit sweater and printed shorts, and Witchery tank top with studded shoulders, from Rozelle Markets ($5 each!).
My next big-ticket purchase will be…
In my dreams, this gorgeous Celine bag.
Labels I love include…
High-end designers: Balmain, Isabel Marant.
High-street: Country Road, Witchery.
This summer I’m inspired by…
My personal style icon is…
You’ll never see me wearing…
My favourite era for fashion was the…
80s, for sure. No such thing as minimalism then. It also had the best music!
I would describe my personal style as…
Comfy, slightly tomboyish, with a touch of femininity.

If I could raid anyone’s wardrobe, it would be…
The best piece of style advice I ever got was…
Not necessarily about style but… if you keep thinking about it, buy it!
That’s Day 1 of NaBloPoMo done! Phew! Feel free to answer the questions about yourself and link back to me – I’d love to read your answers! Wish me luck for the rest of the month 😛
