My Weekend with Odd Molly



Lazy Sundays! We all love them. Mine wasn't exactly lazy though. This time of the year is an extremely hectic time for primary teachers as we are in the middle of organising end of year reports. So after typing reports for what felt like years, I took a break and wondered out into the backyard. Our backyard is like a tropical haven, a place where I can be carefree and forget about my troubles. I frolicked around, enjoying the sunshine and cool breeze! It was such a perfect Sunday, even though I did have to work.

Report writing called for a comfortable outfit, so I put on my favourite pair of denim jeans and my  favourite Odd Molly pointelle/lace top. Odd Molly is a Swedish designer, who I discovered a couple of years ago. Their garments are stocked at Syrup, Cactus Jam & Eco D boutiques. I love the garments because they are so comfy, wearable and feminine, with an edge and quirkiness about them.

























Odd Molly's philosophy is that you need to let yourself shine and truly be yourself. Don't be afraid! This is evident in the little phrases which are printed on either their labels or on the back of each garment. The label on my Odd Molly top reads, "celebrating yourselves."

It's so very true. We all should celebrate the unique individuals we are and not be afraid to show our true colours.




What do you like to wear on a lazy Sunday? Please feel free to comment as I love receiving your feedback! 

Take care until next time,

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!
Yours in style

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…
