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,

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…

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…
