I haven’t joined in with this linky in a while, but today the sun is smiling and there’s a hint of spring in the air here in Wellington, New Zealand. The rumbles and shakes from the earthquakes over the weekend seem to be subsiding (touch wood!) and it’s a day for smiling (despite the thought […]
Stepping into Autumn this Wardrobe Wednesday
We are holidaying in Queenstown this week, getting a beautiful fix of Autumn in Otago. Hues of yellow, orange and fiery red adorn the trees, their beauty magnified in the glass like reflections of the lakes. Our holiday wardrobes reflect the season, layered like the folds in the mountains that have their first sprinkling of […]
Wardrobe Wednesday | Getting my stripes & patterns on!
In two days time the family and I fly to Queenstown, in New Zealand’s beautiful South Island, for a holiday. I’m in that pre-packing stage of going through my wardrobe and trying to limit what I take – rather than throwing in too much at the last minute – and then only wear a quarter […]
Wardrobe Wednesday | Shorts
I’ve favoured skirts and dresses way more than shorts this summer, but today I dug out a pair of my fav shorts (previously jeans – but the holes in the knees got obscene from crawling around clearing up after my children!). With autumnal weather starting to hint at its presence, it felt good to throw […]
Wardrobe Wednesday (posted the night before – Pinot Gris will do that!) – Working on it…
What a giggle this ‘Wardrobe Wednesday‘ thing is. When I ask Miss 7, ‘Please can you take my pic?’, she says, ‘It’s that time of the week, isn’t it?’ and then giggles as she takes a dozen shots and tells me how to pose… oh dear (but it IS such a laugh – and there’s […]
Wardrobe Wednesday – Casual with a little butterfly inspired colour
Today was a glorious autumnal day in Wellington, that actually didn’t feel anything like autumn – except for the morning temperature of 13 degrees centrigrade… which within an hour had rocketed up to a lovely 23 degrees centigrade. I was heading into Wellington city feeling a little chilly in my summery shorts – but the […]
There’s a new ‘Wardrobe Wednesday’ host (at Kiwi Women’s Style) and I thought I’d link up this week (as I really needed some motivation to get out of my p-jays) and try to dress like a regular woman! When I finally managed to detach myself from my youngest (very adorable it must be said) limpet, […]
Wardrobe Wednesday – Back to the Ball (in honour of Kate & Wills!)
It’s a historic Wardrobe Wednesday waking up to the news that Wills is finally to make an honest woman of Kate. Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton next year and I think it’s so touching that he gave her his mother’s engagement ring. “As you may have recognised it’s my mother’s engagement ring so […]
Wardrobe Wednesday – dreaming of a picnic
I love this white, romantic skirt from Lakeland. It was bought in the beautiful Lake District of England, whilst holidaying there in 2007, by my dear Mum (and the green top was a Christmas present from my Mum – from New Look in the UK). Looking back on these Wardrobe Wednesday posts my Mum is […]
Wardrobe & Wordless (well a few!) Wednesday
My wardrobe this week has gone from one extreme to the other. From a cocktail dress in honour of the wonderful Cocktails at Naptime book (and I ended up having to change an exploding nappy whilst dressed in my finest!) to ‘Hat Friday‘ when the opportunity for a shower completely bypassed me and a nap […]
Wardrobe Wednesday: Someone’s learned the art of keeping awake!
It’s close to 1am and little Miss 8 month old has decided it’s the perfect time to exercise her vocal chords. She has a beautiful voice and is making the most delightful sounds, only her timing is awful! I have brought her downstairs so she doesn’t wake up the rest of the household. I can […]
Wardrobe Wednesday: Wishing for Sunshine
I’m wearing this colourful t-shirt from good ‘ole Marks & Spencer (thanks Mum!) in protest of the weather this week. In case you can’t read the words, they say, ‘Sunshine’ (weather please take note!). It’s not been too bad in Welly (down south they’ve had hail and another large, 5.0-magnitude, aftershock). We’ve had a few […]
Wardrobe Wednesday: Warm enough for a skirt!
The challenge was set last week for no denim and no black. My wardrobe in summer is a lot more colourful and less denim dependent so when the sun came out on Friday (and stayed out for several days) I delved into the back of my wardrobe to my summer skirts with great excitement. I […]
Wardrobe Wednesday: Why?
ME TO CHARLOTTE: Can you take a quick photo for Wardrobe Wednesday? CHARLOTTE: What’s that? ME: Oh, it’s just a bit of fun I do on the blog each week. I post up a photo of myself and other Mums do the same on their blogs. CHARLOTTE: Why do parents do that? (With a tone […]
