B & M

I've got to tell you about a designer which I think has the best contemporary cashmere around; Banjo & Matilda. You may have seen fashionistas and celebs wearing sweaters with a skull and crossbones logo & B & M, their trademark design. Banjo & Matilda also use two kisses, stitched into their garments, for a really cute touch.

Banjo & Matilda was launched in 2008, by Belinda MacPherson and is made and designed in Bondi Beach, Australia. Belinda designs "for real life and a love of absolute comfort and longevity. Simplicity with a generous serve of discreet luxury makes me happy, and I am guessing/hoping/knowing you'll love it too".

What I really love about Banjo & Matilda's designs is that they reflect an easy-going, chic attitude, which is what really appeals to me. Belinda's garments are very wearable and versatile. Take for instance the Ultimate V, available in a myriad of seasonal colours. This can be worn casually with jeans and flats, then dressed up for evening wear. Just add some heels and you're good to go.

I don't actually own any Banjo & Matilda yet, but I have this fabulous designer on my wish list in CAPITAL LETTERS!! They offer free postage on all domestic orders within Australia. You can purchase Banjo & Matilda's range of clothing and accessories if you live outside of Australia as well, and it's free if you spend $500.00. All garments purchased online come in a gorgeous brown box, tied with a coordinating ribbon. Sounds divine, doesn't it?

It's "hump day" today guys and there's only two more days left of work for me. Tomorrow will be a very long day/night as we have our school's art show. Let's hope time flies as I really am in desperate need of a holiday!! By the way, I am hoping I can continue my blog while I travel. I'd love to share with you some of the highlights and perhaps some boutiques I discover along the way.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 

Yours in style,

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!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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 my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.

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!
Yours in style,
