Weekend Round Up..What I wore to celebrate Australia’s Birthday..


The summer holidays are winding up..The Australia Day Weekend is the last hoo-rah before kids are back to school and I am back to work full time…I’m quite liking the sleep ins, late morning beach walks with the kids and the one work meeting per day. The weather has cooled just slightly and the hot, hot days have shifted to warm, and nights need a little more cover..so I have worn just that….

Last week there was a movie night scheduled with my girlfriend …Great excuse to catch up..and take in a must see flick..Drinks and a quick bite before we headed off to see Les Miserables at the Jam Factory Gold Cinemas..a 3 hour movie requires more comfort!…It was a pretty warm night, but knowing the cinema can be cooler, I chose an outfit than could be added to…Denim Zipper Jeans from Zara, these are my go-to summer jeans..slightly shorter than regular jeans and the zip adds a casual feel..Sportsgirl khaki singlet with bold gold numbers and Nude Louboutin kicks.. Understated and easy….My wrap/poncho is from Vintage inspired label Strawberry and Champagne and was a purchase from a Los Angeles Boutique a couple of years ago..It is a beautiful pale French grey cashmere and wool blend with a spattering of gold, crystal and black jewels. I love wearing this piece..its super cosy and dresses up a really casual look..

We had 3 Aussie Day BBQs over the weekend, so it was a busy few days.. Catching up with friends and their kids is always such good times..On the Sunday afternoon we headed out and it was deceptively hot.. I chose my Zara Black shorts, Country Road Gold Zipper Singet,Witchery Wedges, added a vintage Chanel Necklace..and the best coverall of the season…The Country Road Open Knit Cardigan in Ivory..This piece has been my fave this summer..It covers you up just enough, so you can keep your outfit full summer stylin’..but a little discreet in all the right places..over the arms and bum..Its a good little cardi…

You may have noticed if you’ve seen my other Weekend Round Up posts, I tend to wear a lot of the same outfits, Just add a throw or a piece of jewellery to mix it up..I don’t always think you need to spend a bunch of money on your wardrobe to keep it on trend..Buy some inexpensive seasonal feature pieces, ones you know you’ll be sick of quickly, and spend more on the more classic items..shoes, jewellery, wraps etc..These you can wear for years and enjoy with many outfits.. Do you buy your wardrobe this way too? I’m keen to hear how you shop…
