I hope you had a wonderful Valentines day celebration yesterday lovelies. As for me? We had dinner at home and a long meandering walk along the beach. So just a low-key, casual evening.

If I did have the urge to get out, I would wear this dress. Not only is it one of the most outstanding pieces in my wardrobe, it also carries a designer name that suits the Valentines days theme – Lover! Pleats with animal print, button up and short… what an unexpected combination of modesty and passion. Even though we shot these photos weeks ago (back then) it is only now I’m publishing the entire look.

Also, I’ve been thinking about this blog and it’s relevance to my actual life. Even though it may all look glamorous and picture perfect, my life is no different to any other woman with kids. There is no magic wand (or even a nanny involved), just three of us. So the message I’m trying to send across is that life is as beautiful (and stylish) as you make it…

    Ah firstly, wow! Love the dress (I can’t ever go past leopard!) and you look absolutely amazing in it!

    Secondly, isn’t it funny how things can look so perfect on the outside and people just assume it is easy and that you have help? You do a wonderful job mumma, you should be so proud of yourself.
