Better to be loved & worn, than sitting pretty in my closet!

I love clothes. I love fashion, trying new trends and styling. So it shouldn’t have come as shock to me just how much clothing I had been hoarding when we moved from Canada back to Oz. But boy oh boy, I was actually a little embarrassed at how much I had accumulated & held on to …

Fast forward a year and a half & I have culled my wardrobe quite significantly. Thanks to The Minimalists, I am now extremely aware of how much I allow myself to put in my wardrobe.

Here are the questions I ask myself for every purchase I make …
Is it a favourite? Is it quality? Is it versatile? Can I chase a toddler in it?! And my favouite question, can I wear it with both heels & runners?!

I recently teamed up with the wonderful people at TOBI and had the privilege of styling three gorgeous pieces. There are so many stunning pieces to choose from, click HERE to see for yourself! 

From brunch to the park to date night. Its amazing just how much you can do with a few key items, and how simply switching your shoes or accessories can change an entire outfit!

I am in love with the colour of this slinky little number! Add some sexy heels & a leather jacket and this mama is ready for date night! I chose a muted nude lip colour and super fine accessories to let the dress have all the glory! (And my tan lines!) 

For a more relaxed look, take the same dress, a grey or white tee, a bomber jacket & trusty white converse. Load up on coffee and you're ready for the park!

As a mum, a stylist & a budding minimalist, how much I put into my wardrobe has become really important. Your wardrobe doesn’t need to be overflowing with loads of items or expensive designer pieces to be stylish. It simply needs to reflect you. 
Your life. Your loves. Your style. 

Now, I love the off-the-shoulder trend but as a mama having to chase a toddler, its not practically something I can wear day to day. That was until I found this pretty black number with its thin little straps & I instantly knew it was a piece I could play with. 

Pair it with some denim cut offs & connies for an effortless summer weekend look. Or create a jumpsuit look by piecing it together with some black shorts, heels, a bold lip & statement earrings for a night on the town with the girls!! Just add champagne!

Wear the clothes! Have fun! Play around with what you have and look for key items that go with a range of what you already own. But don't be afraid to add a statement piece or 2 that makes you come alive!! 

How yes is this dress?! I am absolutely in love with it! And just when I thought I couldn't love it more, my hands found the pockets!! I know I will be living in it this Summer. It's a complete outfit in itself. Minimal accessories required. And yes, it can be worn with slides, heels & my ever present white leather converse. Park, brunch, beach, whatever!

Better to be loved & worn, than sitting pretty in my closet!
