So tempting!

I'm still not over my chest infection, but am feeling a lot better than I have been. I was back at work this week and ventured out to the shops on my lunch break for the first time today. I tried on these pants and this skirt from Jigsaw. They're both gorgeous and fit perfectly... so tempting! I also think a pair of these nude pumps from Nine West would work perfectly with both for Spring.

A collection

Just a collection of pretty images I've pinned in the past few days.  I don't have a lot of energy tonight.

Confessions of a shopaholic: weeks 6, 7 & 8

Zip, nada, nothing... that's what I bought in weeks 6 and 7.  I've been very sick for the past few weeks, alternating between struggling through days at work and days sitting on my sofa.  I just made it out to Country Road on the last day of week 8 to buy some frames before the new season 'spend & save' offer finished.
I'm planning on making a mini gallery with our favourite wedding photos.  I did a quick mock-up in Photoshop to make sure what I have in my head will actually work on the wall.  I think it will.

Zara Mini campaign

I don't often share baby things on here and no I'm not "getting clucky" now that I'm married. I do however have the sweetest little three week old niece who fell asleep in my arms for an hour last weekend. I just had to share the new Zara Mini campaign from the Netherlands. The colours and styling are so beautiful and the little outfits are pretty cute too.

Another stunning Melbourne apartment

I've been proven wrong twice in the past month.  Here is another gorgeous Melbourne apartment that I would definitely be happy to move into.  The space and light are great and I love that so many of the windows peer out at the treetops.  This lovely home belongs to interior designer, Brooke Pertzel.  She has great taste.  I love every inch of this space.

Carla Zampatti Spring/Summer 2013

I've been meaning to share these gorgeous gowns from Carla Zampatti's Spring/Summer 2013 collection for a little while now. Such a lovely mix of structured and draped shapes and all in black and ivory.

A black and white bathroom and a pop of colour

I love this black and white bathroom and the colourful door.

Country Road Spring 2013

I'm a little infatuated with Country Road's new arrivals for spring: feminine tailoring and plenty of black and white with pops of bright colour and pattern.  I especially love that their latest range of flats have ankle straps (great for people with narrow feet like me) and those bell sleeve tops are so cute.

Simply gorgeous photography

I just love these photographs and the gown in the second image.

The Lucy cape

My black Lucy cape from Jigsaw is currently my favourite thing in my winter wardrobe.

I just found out they later made it in butterscotch and it's now on sale from $399 to $249. They have none left in my size in Sydney or online, but I may be able to get one sent up from Melbourne. Should I?  It would be a nice contrast to all the black in my winter wardrobe.

The art of contrast

I was about to go to bed when I saw this kitchen/dining space on Desire to Inspire and loved it so much I had to share it right away.

What's not to love: sleek contrasting finishes in neutral shades, Thonet chairs, industrial lighting and a surprisingly colourful geometric rug.

The interior design of this home is the work of Doherty Lynch.
