Beach and Brunch

Tuesday, 3 March 2020

2 comments

Outfit Details:

Dress - Bohemian Traders
Hat - Seed Heritage
Sunglasses - c/o Specsavers Australia (I had them made into sunglasses with brown polarising)
Bag - Tk Maxx
Sandals - Porronet

The titles and images are pretty self explanatory, today is Tuesday which typically means it's mum and daughter day since we both don't work on a Tuesday. We either hang out at one of our houses or we go to a local beach for a walk/swim and brunch at a cafe or in most cases we do both. Beachside in the morning and then chilling out later... Sometimes we even have a sewing day! It's always something I look forward to as it's always our day.

Pusheen at the Park

Super Pusheenicorn Playsuit - c/o Sarsparilly
Hat - Op-shop
Shoes - c/o Shoe Fun

You may have seen some photos of this gorgeous and very cute playsuit in one of my previous blog posts or if not my Instagram. Today I'm just sharing some photos of the playsuit in a more casual style, worn here with one of my favourite hats that I've had for years and a pair of my favourite heels. I've also worn it with my flat sandals that are what I basically live in all spring and summer! 

You can't go wrong with a playsuit, especially when it's this cute! The fabric is beautiful quality, the frill sleeves are adorable, I love the colours and it has pockets! For size reference I'm wearing size xs and love the fit.

Brunch Date Look

Beret - Myer
Luxe Monaco Heels in Metallic French Champagne - c/o Charlie Stone Shoes

Another set of images I posted on my Instagram and are now being archived into the blog. Take about a week or so after our wedding. We went out for brunch and Max took some quick photos of me in this super cute Hell Bunny outfit. 

Pinafores always make me feel so cute but I love that this one has such a lovely fit to it that it feels like a more mature style pinafore dress, the twirling skirt and pockets give it extra bonus points. I love it styled with this simple knit top though I bet it would look cute without a layered top for the warmer weather, I must try that!

The shoes are so beautiful, I wore them during the evening of my wedding too. They were a sweet gift sent to me from Sam of Charlie Stone Shoes and I loved them so much for how glam they are but also comfortable the heel is.

Sewing: Butterick B6322 Gertie Pattern

Sunday, 2 February 2020

Okay, so these photos are from December 2018 when it was my birthday and I wanted nothing more than to the reptile park as it had been years since I last went. I made this dress about a week before my birthday so I had the perfect Australiana themed dress to wear. This is probably my favourite dress that I have sewn!


Dress - Me-made
Pattern: Butterick B6322 Gertie
Fabric: Jocelyn Proust Warratah Fabric via Spotlight

Hat - Seed Heritage
Brooches - c/o Erstwilder
Shoes - c/o Charlie Stone Shoes


I love looking back at this dress and I have worn it so many times so that is always a good sign that it is a good make. How beautiful is this Jocelyn Proust Warratah fabric? I can't help but feel a little sad thinking of all of the Australian animals and the land that has been destroyed from the bushfires.

If you would like to donate to the fires please do, when it comes to donating to the wildlife try even donating to smaller organisations so they directly get the funds. Donating to our firefighters and the people the people directly affected by this is vital of course too.

When I first sewed this dress with some cheaper practice fabric I loved it immediately at that point too, I'm thinking about making another one too. When you find a dress, pattern and silhouette that you love so much I see no shame in making as many as you like! When I flick between both dresses I see major improvements with this one and that is always rewarding when sewing.

Saturday at the Gardens

Dress - Bohemian Traders
Sunglasses - c/o Specsavers Australia (from their range with Red or Dead London)
Hat - Rivers
Sandals - Porronet 
Bag - Bed, Bath and Table

Some snaps from Saturday, outfit photos snapped by my brother and dad. Other photos taken by me and my constant need to stop and look to look at the beautiful blooms.

This dress is one of my favourites, or should I say this fabric. I discovered Bohemian Traders mid last year, to my luck it was one of their huge sales so I ended up buying multiple pieces in this fabric which I love so much. I have since added some more pieces to my wardrobe that aren't in this print haha!

Not much to report at the moment, I've been a little unwell this week so it has been bed and couch rest but I feel like I am getting better, thankfully. I should probably toddle back off to bed now that I've written this short post.

After not having as much time to sew last year, I am back into the swing of things and am overflowing with many ideas of what I want to sew and have already started, so look out for more sewing posts this year!
