Oh, how I missed you!

I cannot tell you how much I have missed you. I haven't been able to blog since I fell ill last Sunday. Due to the fact I had contracted a rare form of food poisoning, I was hospitalised from Sunday through to Wednesday afternoon. Although I can confirm it was the worst time in my entire existence, now I can say I feel more human again and, so, I am back, doing what I love...blogging to you!

Today was the first day I started to feel like there was a light at the end of a very long tunnel. I had to go to a hairdressing appointment this morning, which I was of course dreading because I did not know how or if I could handle being in an upright position for more than a couple of hours. I was bedridden for what felt like weeks. However, I made it through and am happier for it. Now my tresses are shiny and new, which has helped me start to become to feel brighter within myself too. 

I've taken a few happy snaps of the outfit I wore today. Another cashmere ensemble, paired with my trusty blue denim jeans and boots. I love the colours of the striped sweater; mint and lime, the perfect colour fruity combo for a wintry day like today. The cable knit cobalt blue scarf I am wearing is HUGE. I love wrapping it around in many different ways. The colour is striking and works really well with an already colourful backdrop. 

I am going to be taking it really easy this long weekend. It's my husband's birthday next Tuesday, so we have our mums over for a little celebration to mark this special occasion on Monday evening. I am hoping I feel up to taking Sean out on Tuesday night, for an intimate dinner for two. Besides that, I'll be resting and finalising my student reports. 

Have a beautiful long weekend, my lovelies! What are your plans? 

On a final note, live each day as though it were your last. Do the things that make you the happiest. Remember, if all else fails, go shopping!! That's what I'll be doing as soon as I'm fully recovered.

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

Grace Kelly: Style Icon

Some of you may know already that I recently went on a country  girls' getaway with my mother to Bendigo to view the Grace Kelly: A Style Icon exhibition. I am so thrilled that I did! It was simply amazing.  The package I purchased was the Country Girls' Getaway, which included one nights accomadation at the City Centre Motel (4 star), breakfast, in-house Grace Kelly Movies, plus 2 x tickets to the exhibition. The special pack I received upon check-in, which included a terrific shopping and dining guide, special discounts and maps. The exhibition was held at the Bendigo Art Gallery. The session was timed by the hour to prevent the influx of visitors, which I felt worked really well. There was plenty of room and I didn't feel like I needed to hurry up, so instead, took my time, taking in every detail. I could have spent all day looking at every single minute detail of each and every one of the stunning gowns that adorned this beau
