5 Fab Minutes: The Blogger’s Edition (and it’s NaBloPoMo)

NaBloPoMo November 2015

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.

In my carry-on case I pack…
My Michael Kors wallet, sunglasses from Specsavers, lipgloss (usually Burt’s Bees), hand moisturiser. This doesn’t include half the house that I carry in my 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

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…
Sincerely Jules.

My personal style icon is…
Jean Seberg.


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…
Alexa Chung.


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 😛
