Date Night

Saturday night had finally rolled around and I was super excited… cause my loverboy had planned a date night to celebrate our moving in together 🙂

The weather was super blustery but nice and warm, so we trotted off to Eat Street to sample our favourite treats. We hit up Eat Street all the time as it’s so much easier for everyone to choose what they are craving, and it’s always reasonably priced.

Now, I’m a creature of habit… so I get the same thing every time!

I start with sweet potato chips, then sip on an iced tea, and stop by Gluten Off on the way out to pick up a GF cinnamon donut.

I wore my new Annalee Jumpsuit from The Parla which was perfect for this weather! Nice and light to keep me cool, and no need to fret about my hem line blowing up, up & away in the wind 😉

  

As well as my traditional cinnamon donut, I also took home a GF Twix Bix! Gooey, caramelly, biscuit perfection.

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!

Indooroopilly’s New Favourite Store

Brisbane finally got its first taste of H&M, with the Swedish fast fashion retailer opening at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre on March 5th.

I headed down in the early evening to check it out, and get my fix of retail therapy.

After a brief line-up to enter the store, I was handed a big shopping satchel and I was on my way! The store was teeming with ladies and gents ranging from teens to middle ages, I even spotted an adorable elderly couple perusing the clothing racks!

Everything was reasonably priced, but without the heavy compromise on quality that so often accompanies fast fashion. The racks were stocked appropriately, I easily found my size and there wasn’t excessive stock crammed into each space. Aesthetically the store resembled TopShop – clean and neat with plenty of light and room to move.

I grabbed a few pieces to sate my thirst for lovely new things, keep scrolling to check them out!

Fluffy crop jumper – $29.99AUD

Embellished cotton shell skirt – $39.99AUD

Fuzzy scarf – $19.99AUD

Racerback floral bra – $19.99AUD Matching bikini style knickers (not pictured) – $7.95AUD
lexieloublog
My Little Pony hair tie & clip set – $5.95AUD

Of course I couldn’t leave without something pony related! 😛

The scarf is probably my favourite piece, it’s super huge and warm. So great to wrap around my shoulders, and to diversify my wardrobe by layering it with other garments.

I received prompt and friendly service by all staff I encountered. H&M is sure to be my new go-to for staples, fast fashion and workwear!

Stores are set to open soon at Westfield Garden City, and Brisbane CBD.

Happy shopping!
