Ok so you’ve just had a baby and you’re tired and emotional and just trying to get by and cooking meals is probably the last thing on your mind, but you know you gotta eat. Some of you are lucky enough to have family around to come and take care of most things for you, but what if you don’t have that luxury?
Sustainability is super on trend right now. It seems that every influencer is now on board with sustainability, even if they weren’t before. I hope they stick to it. For some of us we’ve been campaigning for the fashion industry and consumers to start taking responsibility for what is happening to our environment and to stop and think about our purchasing choices we make.
When it comes to buying a dress, I like to know that I can style many different ways and wear it all year round. This is why I love a slip dress. It’s versatile, easy to style and it can be worn all year round. I fell in love with this Vero Moda Black Lace Recycled Dress from Born at Dawn. It ticked all the boxes for me. Black, pretty and recycled polyester.
Below I show you how to style it up 5 ways: casual, evening, with boots and a belt, styled over jeans and with a vintage tee and trousers. There are so many other ways of styling this dress, but I encourage you to style it up your own way and I want to see too!!!!
So today I want to talk about Wardrobe Care Essentials. What exactly are wardrobe care essentials? Well, they are items that you can use to help prolong the lifetime of your clothing. Sustainability isn’t just about buying organic or eco clothing, it’s also about taking care of the clothing you already have. Society has taught us that it’s ok to head out to the shops, but a cheap shirt, wear it a few times and then toss it. But what if we all stopped doing this and actually went out bought something nice and actually took care of it!!!! What a grand idea!
I’m so glad to finally post another Chit Chat Friday. It’s been ages. I mean I did just move my family from London to Frankfurt, Germany so I think I may have an excuse. But no more excuses now!
Today’s interview is with Emily Canino owner and designer of DoodleMoo. Many of you are very familiar with her already. Her little design studio is growing rapidly and her designs are filling your homes too. Doodle Moo is known for their fun and bright illustrations especially their very popular Te Amo print! Emily, originally from Venezuela brings colour and fun into her art.
It’s crazy how fast a year goes by these days. I feel like I blink and then it’s gone. I’m always torn when it comes to a New Year as I want to have so much hope that this year will all make sense, and that everything will click and fall into place. Then there’s the let’s reflect on what we’ve accomplished so far aspect. I know this is important because it’s so easy to forget how far we have actually come in one year. But what if your progress wasn’t as great as you wanted it to be. Can you still say wow look how far I’ve come? There seems to be so much pressure to succeeding in one year. Success takes years to build. So you can see why I’m so torn when it comes to the New Year. I’m torn between excitement and disappointment.
I know Christmas is right around the corner and I know it’s probably silly to have a wishlist but hey why not? My family doesn’t really do a big Christmas so I know these pieces won’t be under the tree but hey that’s ok. Can still use it as a hint hint to the husband haha. My birthday is just around the corner.
I’m so happy to share another playsuit with you today. It’s a good one. I put together playlists based on how I’m feeling at the moment. Some may be super up-beat and fun and others may be a bit more subdued, a bit more reflective. As many of you know my family made a big move from London to Frankfurt, Germany, so we’ve been settling in here and learning to call this place our home.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to want to skip the whole spending money on basics for the wardrobe and would prefer to buy a pretty dress or another pair of jeans that I don’t need. But I’ve come to terms with the essentiality of basics. You need basics plain and simple.
