This weather coupled with 3 unwell babes has me feeling very miserable today. Cuddling the lady to make her feel better provides me with hours of time to wander round the web looking at cool stuff, I’ve found these pants which I just love and help me escape, in my mind, to a sunshiny day, sipping mocktails with my gorgeous fellow mum friends as we watch all the kidlets play beautifully together in the garden. What a lovely fantasy huh?! Perhaps if I had the pants it would come true….??!!

It’s simple, and most of all fun, to enter, so get your snaps in quick as the competition ends on 13th December! Happy snapping!
I am finding that although Boohoo is targeted to a market slightly younger than me, there are still a lot of pieces that I love and work perfectly for this nearly mid-thirties *blush* mumma. Each day this week I am going to show an outfit I have put together from clothing to shoes and accessories entirely from the Boohoo range. With their great prices, easy to navigate website and free shipping I think Boohoo has far wider appeal than they appear to. Not just for the 20 something party gals, Boohoo is just as perfect for the 30 something mummas!
This first outfit is one I’ve picked with a beach theme in mind, maybe it’s a beach party with friends and family or simply a day at the beach with the fam.
poppy gladiators $32
black rucksack $38
The perfect fun but stylish day at the beach outfit which can be glammed up with some jewellery if the occasion calls for it yet works just as perfectly for a casual day. A big floppy straw hat would be a great addition to the outfit also!
What do you think of my first outfit?
When I popped into target this morning to pay some on the Christmas layby, I spied a few clothing items I very easily could have taken with me then and there! I don’t often shop much for me at target but every now and then they suddenly have a number of things that appeal to me.
This sleeveless chambray shirt $20 is beautifully soft and wonderfully versatile. Perfect for layering and wearing open or shut, it also (& essentially) works for feeding the lady!
These cute paisley print shorts $29 are a great length for those like me who are new to shorts look. Not too short but short enough for the summer heat.
Still loving print pants & these floral pants $29 are great for balmy nights with a camisole or sleeveless shirt.
Butterflies aren’t normally something that I go for but this hi low sleeveless shirt $29 is just so sweet that it has sucked me in!
These pieces at just $110 altogether work fabulously together and with items I already own so are perfect for an inexpensive summer wardrobe update. Target also had an ace pair of shorts that I wanted to show but I couldn’t find them online…perhaps if I make a sneaky purchase I will be able to show them off then 😉 have a great weekend x
Once again, she shopped showed me something just beautiful that I never knew I needed before but now cannot live without! This is what Lucy popped on Facebook earlier today;
floral floor length cape $129.95 by somethin somethin. How stunning is it?! Love, love, love ❤️ but not exactly wallet friendly for something I realistically wouldn’t wear that often…little too glam for the school run me thinks! But would be perfect for my birthday, Christmas & New Years! With a bit of searching I’ve found these great alternatives;
Sofia floral kimono $32 from boohoo.com is super pretty & I could imagine adding some fringing to the bottom to lengthen it further 👍
tilly longline kimono $46 also from boohoo.com is another goody and def says nighttime party!
Whilst it’s not floral, animal print is a big fave… animal festival throw $79.95 from sportsgirl.
A particularly gorgeous girlfriend had on the cutest sandals at lunch today. After admiring them for sometime I enquired as to their origin and was rather impressed with the answer! Where would you guess these babies were from?
Target is where! I couldn’t believe it! The sailor patent sandal is just $24 or if you have little feet an even tinier $15 in the kiddie version!!! Whoop whoop!! At that price you could get a couple of colours as aside from the mint they come in black, white and my fave next to and nearly equal to the mint-yellow!
A friend recently sent me a pic of a book caddy she had fallen for from the land of nod the infamous US interior brand. They have the most stunning pieces and ideas but unfortunately are not yet in Australia. This is the caddy she was loving:
good read book caddy $149US on top of this price they quoted over $200 to ship to Australia. She (& I) love this caddy but def not nearly $400 much!! After showing hubby he said he would be able to make something similar for far less but until time and motivation for this project appear I have found a far cheaper version….
That’s right, the old wooden dishrack along with a can of spray paint! For under $30 I think it’s a pretty great option esp as I want to put it in our little boys room who is not exactly gentle with his belongings!
