are you a sneakerhead?

Autumn is here, winter is coming… And that means a wardrobe update! This year it’s all about the sneaker for us. We still love our boots, but to be practical, as mamas who still want to look stylish, it’s sneakers all the way.

Last year Liza switched between a very old pair of pink Adidas trainers and an apple green pair of Reeboks, but this winter it’s time for an update. Emily’s just bought a pair of Supergas (see below) and she can’t believe it took her so long. They have barely left her feet since. She wears them with everything from jeans to office-style LBDs – basically her wardrobe has been revolutionised, in fact her entire ‘look’ on a day-to-day basis. Liza is still on the hunt!

What’s your favourite pair and how do you wear them?

valentine’s ideas for him

Need some ideas for your man for V Day? Every year I make my hubby a cheesecake, but these gifts are pretty awesome too 🙂

ihc

1/ Mont Blanc Star Classique watch – a classic timepiece that’ll go well with his work wardrobe, or any outfit for that matter

2/ H&M cashmere blend jersey – perfect for autumn as the mornings and evenings get crisper

3/ Davidoff Cool Water EDT – okay I’m being biased here as this is my favourite scent on my hubby, but any of your favourites will do

4/ Houtkappers Beard Box – this box contains a bottle of beard oil as well as a handcrafted wooden bow tie with elastic (so nifty!)

5/ Herschel Supply Company backpack – a very cool way for him to carry all his stuff

6/ Persol shades from Sunglass Hut – because every man needs a pair of Persols at least once in his life

7/ Adidas sneakers – timeless and easy to wear with anything

8/ Beats Pill Dude – you may need to get the Beats Pill speaker too, but how can you resist something so rad?

hello superstars

Following on from last week’s post on white shoes, we can’t help but love adidas Originals new global campaign relaunching one of their most iconic sneakers – the Superstar. Can you believe it first launched in 1969? We weren’t even born yet. To kick off the new year, adidas have brought together some of the biggest stars of today and have flipped the idea of what we as a society believe to be ‘superstardom’ on its head.

Take a look at the short film featuring Rita Ora, David Beckham, Pharrell Williams and Damian Lillard where each star gets a little honest about the fact that being a superstar is not what you always think it is. This is just the beginning of an entire year of tributes to the iconic shoe. We can’t wait to see what’s next. And, to top it off, our absolute favourite blogger of the moment, Girl a la Mode, has given us some amazing inspiration on how to wear these sneakers come autumn.

how to wear slides

You might remember Emily’s sudden need for the Birk. Soon after that post we went online to order our Birks, then we had shopper’s anxiety and decided against them – it’s quite a lot of money to spend on what might be only very cool for one summer. So we left it. Until we saw Charlie May in her Adidas slides and fell in love – we are now both proud owners of our own Adidas slides. And if they’re only cool for one summer, it’s ok, they weren’t too pricey! The funny thing is, I used to have a pair of these when I was a teenager?!

So, how to wear them…

Slides are super versatile – they work equally well with laid-back boyfriend jeans, slick tailored trousers or a pretty skirt or dress. It’s really what makes you feel comfortable. A tip: try to always keep your jeans rolled or trousers cropped so that you’re showing a bit of ankle. And get a good pedicure 🙂

There are also a ton of different styles – single straps with buckles, two straps with buckles, one big strap, crossovers, white, black, leather, suede, metallic, stripes. Try a few on and go for the style that suits your feet the most. And you can find them pretty much anywhere: Green Cross, Woolworths, Country Road, Trenery, Witchery, Cotton On, Mr Price, Truworths

style crush: charlie may

I stumbled upon British designer Charlie May on Instagram. What first caught my eye was her great hair. But basically every single photo she posts is beautiful. I like discovering designers that I’ve never heard of, especially when their aesthetic speaks to me – simplicity, clean lines, no fuss.

Charlie May also has a great blog, Girl a la Mode, where she posts about all her trips, projects, outfits etc. I love this look with the high-waisted pants and Adidas slides!
