Weekend Bliss

My first full week back at work seemed to go on for so L-O-N-G! I was singing Alleluia, very loudly mind you, when Friday finally arrived upon my doorstep! 

Weekends for me are pure bliss! I just can't get enough of them. The only downside is that, before I know it, they're gone and the new week of work begins once more. As I ease myself into the working week, I start to look forward to the weekend all over again! 

Today is my favourite day of the weekend. Saturdays seem to give me a zap of energy, which always make me feel like dressing up and taking myself off somewhere. 






I chose my beautiful Miu Miu handbag, which is just perfect for running errands, always looks cute and is so versatile with its detachable strap. Along my travels, I stopped off at my beauty suppliers to buy some cute Essie nail polishes. Stay tuned for more details!

 
 

Here's my five top reasons for why weekends for me are pure bliss:

#1 No alarm clock (Yippee!!)
#2 Spending time with friends & family
#3 Dressing up/wearing high heels (deemed unsafe when on yard duty!)
#4 Time to relax and unwind
#5 Plenty of time to SHOP 'til you drop!!(My favourite weekend pastime, of course!)

What makes your weekend blissful?

Yours in style,

  1. Purely blissful commentary on the joys of Saturday! My faves are lunging in jammies with my own fresh coffee, starting a new book, and meeting friends at an outdoor sidewalk cafe to enjoy the sun and people watch in LA! Th only negative is the fact it is my only day to run errands!

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!

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…

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.
