Random Fashion Obsession – Overalls

I’ve been coveting a pair of overalls lately. I know that if not styled with some thought, then a person could end up looking a little like a farmer. So it’s important that your overalls are not overly tight or baggy. Roll the cuffs up if you like and wear something striped or simple underneath like these ladies. Now I’m off to look at more overalls online!

How’s your week been?

Give a frock Friday

tumblr_mlcyerqtQn1qe9qato1_1280This week’s frock has been selected from an edit of street style or rather, festival-style from Coachella 2013, shot by Leslie Kirchoff for Vogue. The frock is by who knows (sorry guys), but the jacket is Helmut Lang and they are being worn very well by Vera Balyura, a New York-based Ukraine-born jewellery designer. I’ve chosen this frock today because it has served as inspiration for my look tonight. Tonight hubby and I are going on our first date night in way-too-long, and so I want to look nice, and even though it’s midwinter here, dammit I am going to wear a frock! I have a cute short dress which I am going to pair with a tailored jacket and opaque tights and boots. And so, in a round-about way, this look has influenced my outfit for tonight!

What are you up to this weekend? We’ve a busy one ahead with last minute birthday gift shopping for our youngest daughter Annabel – I am at a complete loss as to what to get her. How can that be? We are also going to be out and about looking at buying a car. Fun fun fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!

From the Yoga Mat…

yoga is not...I found this on a yoga tumblr recently. Boy am I feeling this right now. My favourite part is, “It’s about breathing and moving and smiling on the inside.” Very soon I think this next bit is going to resonate the most, “It’s the hardest thing I have ever done, but also the best.”  

Hope you’re having a great week!

I’m catching up with some long-lost girlfriends tomorrow and I cannot wait to see them, it’s been way too long. Lately it feels as if we are further apart than ever, but the reality is we live within a short drive of each other. We all lead such busy lives, it’s truly astounding how time passes so quickly. I’m going to surprise my daughters with the visit, I’m not going to tell them who we’re going to see until we reach our destination! I love doing this with them, it makes for such an excellent surprise for them!

Here’s hoping the sun comes out and stays out this weekend.

From the mat… front row or back row?

20130710-221700.jpg
Last night when I walked into yoga class, I noticed something odd and it’s been bugging me ever since. Almost the entire class were in a single line at the back of the room. Basically they could not be further away from our teacher Adam. What was even more perplexing was that they had the entire room to spread out their mats, but instead they chose to pack themselves in like sardines. I placed my mat up the front next to a couple of brave souls and prepared myself for class. Within in minutes more people arrived just as class was beginning and instead of laying their mats up the front or in the middle somewhere, these latecomers squeezed themselves in amongst the back row! Now I’m not talking about a small room, not even an average room, but a large space and in winter, there is a beautiful log fire in one corner to keep us warm. There is loads of space to practice and yet why did people flock to the back of the class?
I love that there is so much space to spread out and yet I seem to be almost alone in this school of thought. All I could think of though was, what are they afraid of?

I just wanted to share that with you because its been bugging me all day!

This sequinned Fendi frock is the perfect party dress. I mistook model Ranya Mordanova for Claudia Schiffer, doesn’t she look just like her? Photography by Yossi Michaeli and the image is from an editorial from The Luxure Magazine‘s Summer 2013 issue. If you have some time, I highly recommend you kill some of it over at the Fendi website. I think I kind of fell down a rabbit a rabbit hole when I began reading about the history of the house of Fendi and the many stunning contributions that Fendi has made to fashion, style and luxury!

Today is the last day of the school holidays. Last week day that is and so I’m taking my girls to see Monsters University. I confess I am probably more excited than they are to see it because I love Mike & Sully!

Enjoy your weekend!

Yoga At Home Truths

Starting an at-home yoga practice is easy. But maintaining one? This is my struggle lately and I am an expert at making myself feel guilty over it too. Slipping in a hand stand here or a balance pose there isn’t so hard. I often find myself sharing my yoga mat with my Labrador while we do a few stretches together. But this is not maintaining a true yoga practice. Not really… but I am working on a plan!

It involves waking up earlier, a lot more discipline and My Yoga Online.
Wish me luck!
