My florals, my way

There's a trend going about town at the moment and it's HUGE! I'm talking about florals. They're the type of florals that remind me of my parents' Moran coach growing up and of Laura Ashley bedspreads. I admire the trend on other people, but cannot seem to bring myself to wear it for myself.

Don't get me wrong, I love the look of florals. I'm a girly-girl after all and appreciate a bouquet every once in a while. However, I prefer my florals petite to suit my frame. 

I remember walking into Max & Co store at Chadstone Shopping Centre one day (for those of you who live overseas, this would equate to a massive Macy's). As I searched the racks for the piece that 'did it' for me, I finished up completely dry of any inspiration. Just as I was about to leave, I noticed the sweetest, prettiest, pink floral blouse,  hanging up behind the counter. 









Immediately I asked the sales assistant whether I could purchase it. I thought it may have been on hold for someone. I tried it on...and, well, I guess you'd say the rest is history!! So, there it hangs still,  delicately on my cream, satin hanger, after a few seasons wear already, and I can still rely on it, like a trusted old friend. 

There you have it, my florals, my way! 

Do you like the floral trend right now? How do you prefer to style your florals?

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!
