Spoil Mum This Mother’s Day!

Mr 4 let it slip this afternoon that he and his buddies had been making Mother’s Day presents at kindy today. I almost fell off my chair! I hadn’t given Mother’s Day a single thought even though it’s just under two weeks away. By the way, it’s Sunday 10 May (I had to look it up!). Which means, even if you’re an avid online shopper like me, there’s still enough time to get organised. Lucky for you, I’ve put together a list of 10 gift ideas that any Mum is sure to love… 1. Blush & Co: ‘Blush of Simplicity’ necklace. I love the simplicity of this piece and that it is rose gold – a colour that is so hot right now. Shop it here: 2. Louenhide: ‘Lottie’ tote bag. Fantastic colour range, beautifully designed and oh-so-versatile. Shop it here: 3. Sacha Drake: ‘Catelyn Convertible Dress’ – $279. You’re sure to be in Mum’s good books for a long time if you gift her this fabulous little black dress! Designed to flatter all body shapes, it can take Mum from work to weekend parties alike. Shop it in store at 208 Given Terrace, Paddington (you may even see me!) or online: 4. Mimco umbrella: for the Mum who has everything. Shop it here: 5. Metalicus: ‘The Half Sleeve Tee in White’ – everyone needs a basic white tee in their wardrobe. Shop it here: 6. Kikki K: ‘Dear Mum’ Cup with Saucer for the tea loving Mum. Shop it here: 7. Feather and Noise: ‘Frenchie Tee Dress’ for fabulous off duty style....

On Trend: Shades of Grey

I am massively crushing on all things grey at the moment, and one of the things I love most about this hue is it’s diversity. From soft and elegant shades to strong and sporty – this is a colour that can be styled in almost any way. It’s possible that you have one or two grey pieces in your wardrobe already. If you’re planning a seasonal wardrobe update, start with what you already have. Got a grey scarf? Pair it with skinny jeans and a simple white tee. How about a grey top? Pair it with classic black pants and some chic accessories. Grey is timeless and there is plenty of it hitting the shops right now. If you’re looking to update your wardrobe this season, grey is the colour to buy. Check out some of my favourite grey pieces from one of my favourite chain stores – Witchery – below. Shades of grey is the theme for this week’s #wearwithuswednesday. Alida from @brisbaneteacherstyle and I would love you to join in. Simply wear grey on Wednesday and share your pic with us on Instagram or Facebook by tagging us @the_stylish_teacher and @brisbaneteacherstyle and using the hashtag #wearwithuswednesday. Lily...
