$44 op shop outfit

 I am very lucky to be surrounded by many great op shops, one of the perks of living in the burbs of Melbourne. Not wanting to rush out and spurge on a new wardrobe just yet I stumbled upon a few great finds at Family Life op shop in Chelsea. The trousers, top and shoes all brand new (apparently one of the assistants sources samples from various fashion houses). I picked up the whole outfit for $44, the vintage necklace was $2 from a garage sale. 
Have a great weekend folks and why not support your local op shop, great bargains to be had!

Just celebrating getting out the door

 Trousers: recent op shop purchase (Italian samples)
 Melissa Peace Wedges: present from my beloved
earrings: Limedrop

ring : Limedrop wooden bangles: Gifted

It's Tuesday and today I've actually managed to run a brush through my hair and put on an outfit. It's a beautiful Spring day here is Melbourne, no better time to embrace colour. 
I'm still very much nursing a wound and a new born and with that comes a change in wardrobe. My plethora of dresses are no longer practical as I breast feed my little one and yes I still have a bump (sorry to break it to you but like the celebrity culture who endorse it, your bump does not magically disappear and your rocking about in evening gown at the first sniff of an engagement). In the real world, it will be several months before my figure snaps back into shape and I'm absolutely ok with that. I came across these silk trousers from my local op shop, brand new for the bargain price of $15 and the top I've had for forever.
I do not have a personal trainer but I will get back to fitness in my own time. 
Until then, I'm just celebrating getting out the door and enjoying the sunshine with my little bundle.

Introducing my wee bairn Bea

The house of Sleekit has turned very pink, let me introduce you to my little bundle of goodness Bea Lilly, born on 11 Sept. 
Quickly approaching 3 weeks in and we are so much in love with this gorgeous girl. She mostly sleeps and feeds with the occasional smile that melts your heart, it's such a precious time. 
Bea was born by C-section therefore I'm still in recovery, hopefully should be back fighting fit in another 3 weeks. Very hard to slow down when you want to get back out there and share your new addition with the world! Until then I'll share her with you x
