Ferngully Fairy… Part Two

Welcome to Part Two of my Ferngully-esque escape into the Mt Coot-Tha Botanical Gardens!

I’m again wearing some beautiful pieces from Chip The Teacup, and I have to tell you… I’m dying for Summer to roll around again so I can sparkle all over the sea-side!

This high-waisted two pieces has a little gold sparkle through it, so up close it really catches your eye and it definitely puts a smile on my dial 😀

I often struggle to find swimsuits that I feel comfortable in and can really feel fabulous in… this one fits the bill better than I could have dreamed! Appropriate lady lump support plus fully lined & padded in the bust, and a flattering bottoms cut that isn’t going to give you a saggy nanna behind. Sorry Nannas. 😛

I paired my togs with a sheer midi length tulle skirt from Black Milk Clothing. All the links to these products can be found at the bottom of this post!

Ferngully Fairy… Part One

Hello everyone, and happy Friday!

I’m increasingly frightened by how fast this year has been passing us by.. eek! Anyone have any tips to slow down time? Even just a little?!

As I’m sure you know by now, I’m all about the slow life! Slow living, slow eating and of course the slow fashion movement! This has been quite a journey for me, as you have to reset your whole approach and mindset when it comes to consuming.

To slow down my weekend, I recently spent some time at the beautiful Mt Coot-Tha Botanical Gardens with my brother to soak up some natural vibes 🙂

I wore my gorgeous Chip The Teacup dress… which really stood out and I certainly got a few looks!

If you haven’t heard of Chip The Teacup, you can check out their gorgeous unicorn and mermaid worthy attire HERE. They are also on Facebook and (my personal fave) Instagram.

CTT love the slow fashion movement just as much as I do, with each piece lovingly handmade to last in beautiful Lennox Head, NSW. The quality is exactly what you would expect from something locally made with love, with the sizing definitely being a true fit and flattering!

Full outfit details will be included at the bottom of this post 🙂

Pastel Play Time

Hello lovers! This my my third and final set of photos (for now!!) from my latest visit to Ra Ra Superstar.

My first outfit pictured here was a bit more cutesy-punk and features an adorable mini skirt made from recycled denim. A really flattering little piece that you could wear out to a party or during the day to a picnic!

The sheer socks are super soft and too cute to be believed. And to spice up any outfit, why not grab a giant eyeball pom pom hairband? Such a unique piece!!

     

I couldn’t resist this wee little set – a combination of florals and pastels…. we all know they are two of my very favourite things! The neckline on this top is super sweet, and it has a cross-over back for those who like to show a little skin 🙂

Autumn Ambles

When the winter-y months roll around, I’m generally not too happy about it.

lexieloublog
Exhibit A…

I do however adore these in-between months of cool mornings and beautiful sunshine worth basking in (without breaking a sweat).

I’ve been making sure I take a walk everyday on my lunch break this week, just to break up the office monotony and to get my blood pumping again. The brisk wind has certainly helped me get moving in an attempt to warm up!!

The warm and cozy coffee shops are calling me…

Busy little bumblebee 

In my experience, things always happen all at once! And this time of year has been no exception. 

I love to keep myself busy and I’ve taken on some extra work, but this means Lexie Lou has been getting a little neglected (but not for long)! I have some very exciting things planned for next month… Including my very first giveaway for Lexie Lou’s first birthday! Watch this space 😉

The colder weather brings a whole new world of fashion and accessorizing, and I’m so ready to get snuggled back up in my fluffy favourites.

   

Jumper: Dissh

Dress: Black Milk Clothing 

Shoes: Tony Bianco  


The in-between months are my absolute favourites, what’s your favourite time of year?

For the love of pink

Pink is no longer reserved for Wednesdays! I’ve been rocking my fave new pink pieces this week to brighten up my busy days.

I nabbed this pink pencil skirt from Myer last night (with a handy 30% off all Paint It Red skirts) and couldn’t wait to wear it out 🙂

Paired with a knit top from Mix Apparel and my trusty Barbie shoes from Wittner I was ready for a matchy-matchy day of rosey hues.

I’ve been keeping myself cosy with my new H&M fluff – the only benefit of sitting in freezing air-conditioning all day is that I get to layer up and accessorise!
