LAS stylefile: how I wore, what I wore?

The cool change has now  set into Melbourne. The days are getting shorter and the nights come too soon. I do love the change that comes with winter, the layering, getting all rugged up sitting in front of the telly a little bit more, hot soups! green tea, chocolates, and the rest that go with it. BUT what I don’t do well with is the lack of colour. My brains just don’t really like it. The grey, the way of dealing with this problem of mine? bringing some colour into my wardrobe. I know the darker colours seem to always creep in by autumn/winter, and same way it does into my wardrobe, but I try to keep a little colour going somewhere, somehow…

So, last week, I did some online retail therapy, just a wardrobe update really! And got me self some pretty things, I visited the blue bungalow site, and went clicking. Rest assured, the pretty parcel arrived very soon after, and some lovely new pieces added to the racks!

I sported their beautiful jersey tunic in the Chartreuse, which can be seen here. It was bright, bold and beautiful. The shorter front and longer back length made it perfect to be worn with a pair of leggings for me (perfect for women that are a little heavier on the bottom half). The sleeves can be worn at full length or ruffled up to half way when indoors and it is slightly warmer. The loose fit allows for a relaxed feel and make it comfortable to run around in, for some work or for mummy duties.

I also paired it with a beautiful animal print scarf, which I purchased a while back from Myer, similar ones still available. Brought my ever so faithful Mimco leather bag out, and to keep warm and dry, I put on a pair of Jane Debster knee-high boots in brown from Sandler, purchased last winter, but you may like something similar here.

Off I went for a work meet, then to run some errands. And those colours? made me a very happy girl…:)

How do you cope with the darker winter colours? Leave me some ideas below, I would love to hear.

that moment when you realise all blessings are from above..I give thanks.

Today has been a great day. A tiring and long one, starting with the little one in the morning. The usual. Then off to a styling session I go. A happy client makes a happy stylist. Then off to the clinic where I take off my stylist hat and put on my doctor one. At 7.30pm, happy patients make a happy doctor.

A long day it has been, but the very many happy smiles I had the privilege of seeing and sharing, made me stop to think. We are put in certain places, doing certain things for a reason. My legs might be killing me, but my heart is a happy place.

blessed to be a blessing.

So to all of you out there, that put in relentless effort in whatever it is you do, just remember, you are in a certain job, time, place or situation for a reason. It may be that you are meant to be a blessing to someone else, whether through your smile, your words or deeds. Be blessed, as all good things are from above. With a contented heart, I give thanks.

Share below if you have something to be thankful for today. I would love to learn from all of you, my lovely readers…
