Springtime – and the livin’ is easy

Patterns and Prints
Hands down September has got to be my favourite time of year.  (I know it is your favourite time of the year too given how busy with weddings we have been!!!!)  The weather here in Brisbane is that perfect blend of warm sunshine and cool breezes – so you can still wear your jeans comfortably (you know, not like in summer when you worry if you put them on you may not get them off!) and you can mix them with lighter, gauzy fabrics and then layer heavier ones.  I love a jumper-short combination outfit myself.  Something about it not “going together” that makes me love it even more. I also love boots and shorts but that is another conversation entirely!  For this outfit, I would pair it that with a heel (Swedish Hasbeens, of course! And look – they are on sale!!!) and a great pairs of Karen Walker Number One sunglasses (particulary if they were given to you by that someone special in your life – thanks Jason!) and you have a great, GREAT outfit.  Day, night, work, play.  I am also totally loving the mixing of prints that will be super huge this season.  My old friends from the old days will tell you that in the early 90s I went through a crazy, colour-discord phase that, if I am really honest, has never left me no matter how minimal and black-and-white I try to go.  Green and blue, blue and black, purple and orange, green and pink – I love it all!!!  So tell me what are you guys wearing this spring?  Anything you reckon I just have to have?  My credit card is at the ready!

Tropical Honeymoon Wardrobe

Tropical Honeymoon Wardrobe

Ok – so be kind to me as this is my first foray into the world of Polyvore.  I’m not exactly sure if I used it right but I thought it would be fun to put together some ideas for a tropical honeymoon wardrobe.  I know we spend a LOT of time here talking about the wedding but one of the best parts about the wedding is the honeymoon afterwards!  Jetting off to some gorgeous island with the bluest sea you have ever seen, long sandy beaches and only your new husband to distract you!  Pure heaven.  So I thought it would be kind of fun to break down a really streamlined wardrobe of a few key pieces that mix and match for your trip!  Planning for this kind of trip is key.  Lay out all of the clothes you are planning on taking and work out what goes with what.  I’m telling you, this kind of packing is a revelation.  You see, before I met Jason I was the kind of girl who brought a different pair of shoes for each outfit I had ‘planned’, and I use the word ‘planned’ loosely because I really just packed everything I owned just in case I really needed it while I was away (even if it was only for a weekend!).  At the beginning of our relationship we would be heading away for the weekend and there I was, dragging 4 or 5 bags of clothes around, most of which I never wore!  Add that to the fact that Jason only ever travels with carry on luggage, and well, by the time we had wasted another half an hour waiting at baggage return and I became a convert to the carry on!  Never again would we waste a single moment waiting for our luggage.  To prove a point these 15 pieces of clothing equates to about 17 outfits!  And that isn’t even including accessories!!  And it would pack down pretty nicely into a tiny suitcase you can stow overhead.  Who would have thought it right?  Sometimes boys really know a thing or two huh?
