A new year, a fresh start

Welcome to 2013! It's been a fabulous start to the year for me personally and I do feel very lucky indeed. I feel fit and healthy and count my blessings for all I have in my life, each and every day.

Speaking of the new year, a lot of people have been talking about what new year's resolutions they've made. The most popular ones being losing weight, joining a gym, giving up smoking, and so on and so forth. 

In the past, not a year would go by that I didn't make a new year's resolution. It was kind of something that myself and my family did. I'm not really into this as much these days. I dread the thought of breaking my resolution and letting myself down as a consequence. 

So, what I do instead is something on a broader scale and that's to continue to live life to its fullest. I do have a special rule of thumb that helps me to achieve this and it's to live each day as though it's your last. I don't mean this in a morbid way or anything, It's just that I want to make the most of each and every day. Life is so precious. I don't want to take anything for granted.







During the year I'm going to keep doing the things that make me the happiest, like going for long walks along the beach, breathing in the beautiful scent of the ocean spray. Spending time with family and friends, having a laugh and sharing precious moments together. Taking time to smell the roses, amidst the busy times and ensuring I continue to look after my own wellbeing, in order to ensure mind, body and soul are working in harmony with one another.

Have you made any new year's resolutions?

Yours in style,

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango! The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt!  For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out

Olga De Polga

Melbourne based designer Olga de Polga  is renowned for their use of colour and vibrant patterns. I really enjoy adding a pop of colour when I style outfits, so if you love colour, you are bound to find something fabulous. On my recent visit, I picked up two pairs of Lillian pants, a new style to ODP, in both pink and caramel. These colours go so well with other pieces in my wardrobe. Style tip: I will not add anything to my wardrobe if it doesn't go with other pieces, so I am very particular when choosing a new piece to add to my collection. The cords fit really well, sitting at mid-waist and fall at the perfect length. The corduroy fabric is soft and feels so cosy, so perfect for Winter here in Melbourne!  Have you visited Olga de Polga? If so, what are your favourite pieces? If you haven't been in store yet, make sure you do so soon, because some styles are selling out really fast. Have a great rest of the week! Yours in style, Suzi x  What I'm Wearing ODP Lillian pants

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally , especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove. So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes.  Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection: Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals. Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!
