it’s pants season

For some reason, I really struggle to wear dresses in winter. I feel too restricted by the layering of tights, dress, jersey, coat etc. So as soon as the weather turns cold and rainy, and I absolutely cannot leave the house baring skin, I turn to pants. All kinds of pants: high-waisted wide leg pants, tapered and cropped pants, skinny denims, boyfriend denims… Here’s some inspiration below.

We also have a whole bunch of gorgeous pants for sale in the I Heart Vintage store, too. Click here to take a look!

And almost always, my pants are paired with flats. Here are a few I have my eye on…

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

what bailey wore

I started a hashtag on my Instagram account of some of Bailey’s outfits #whatbaileywore … It’s so fun dressing little ones. I hope she’ll let me dress her for a little while longer – most mornings she wakes up and insists on wearing a dress. We don’t have a million dresses so often I have to say no and she can’t understand. Also she says her favourite colours are pink and purple… together. Yikes. For now I’ll enjoy creating these little outfits for her while I can.

well, hello there

You’ve probably already spotted them in your favourite Woolies store, and you’ve most likely snatched them for your trolley and taken them home to devour too. Yes, we’re talking about Lindt Hello – the delightful new chocolate range from Lindt, exclusive to Woolies. We are particularly fond of Caramel Brownie. I mean.

borrowed from the boys

A few weeks ago Emily and I attended a Gap styling event hosted by Grazia magazine. What fun to be able to browse the beautiful summer collection in store at our own leisure – think loads of bright prints and colours and, of course, the essential basics that Gap are famous for. As part of the Styling session we were given the option to choose any pair of Gap’s 1969 denims with the idea of styling them our own way. We tried on a whole bunch of denims and both eventually settled on the Sexy Boyfriend – a style that neither of us are too familiar with but one that certainly fits our lifestyles juggling work and our littles.

The Boyfriend Jean is not just about being a more relaxed fit. It is looser than the skinnies we’re used to, but it’s still tailored and tapered to fit just right. They are the softest, most comfortable denims you can imagine and it’s pretty difficult not to wear them every day!

Emily styled her Boyfriends with a Beck & Sondergard scarf and Splendid top, both from Shop-Label, Zara heels and clutch and Prada sunnies from Sunglass Hut.

woolworths saves valentine’s day

If, like us, you have a ton of work all for the same deadline (Emily) and a newborn baby (me), then it’s likely you didn’t get round to the shops to grab something special for your Valentine. Luckily, our favourite one-stop-shop, Woolworths, always stocks the best stuff so it makes gift giving easy and stress-free. It’s still early in the morning, so save the day and get down to Woolies during your lunch break 🙂

Here, our favourites…
