Woodford and Co

Woodford and Co’s designs are unique in a relaxed way- I love to come home from work and throw on one of their dresses. With a strong summer vibe, Woodford and Co’s pieces are perfect for tropical holidays or drinks on a summer evening. As I type this, I’m wearing a breezy, super comfy Woodford and Co mint dress while relaxing with a glass of wine!

Woodford and Co pieces really do make me feel happy and relaxed. I’d love to know- which designers alter your mood?

A dress for a special occasion…

This past weekend I attended a close friend’s wedding. I wore a Karen Millen dress and paired it with a nude Tony Bianco bag and navy nail polish. I am loving navy at the moment and am wearing it every chance I get! I’d love to hear what colours you all love right now- is it a colour that makes you feel more confident? How do you show that colour in your outfits?

I love that Karen Millen dresses are slimming but factor in women’s curves! Though satin is usually unforgiving as a fabric, the overlapping satin at the waist gives you some breathing room. I ate a 4 course meal and it didn’t show, bonus!

This is the best nail polish that I’ve ever found. It is high gloss and the colour is gorgeous.

Shoes without the pain

It’s my personal belief that shoes need to be comfortable. Gone are the days when my motto ‘no pain, no gain’ was in reference to footwear- now it’s all about shoes that are able to last all day without sore feet. I see no point in being in agony. If like me, you still like wearing heels, there are many options in footwear that will allow you to boogie all night on the dance floor or work all day without pain. Oh, and a pedicure never hurts!

These shoes are so comfy- I could literally walk for days in them! Such a high quality design. Pair these with a maxi dress and a statement necklace for summer barbecue parties.

These beauties tick every box. Nude colour? Tick. Ankle strap? Tick. Heel? Tick. With a slightly lower heel, your weight is more evenly distributed over the ball of your foot and your heel, hence less pressure is put on one area. The ankle strap also gives more support. Wear these to a wedding and feel confident in dancing the night away.

I’ve always loved clogs, and the divine colour on this gorgeous pair by Thurley makes them even more enchanting. Pair these shoes with skinny jeans and an oversized tee for a Sunday brunch.

Tips to help sore feet

* Lush volcano foot mask is an affordable and amazing product. Head here to purchase from lush.com.au

*Rub olive oil into dry areas of your feet. The oil is more readily absorbed into your skin than lotions and will soften your skin. Olive oil is also wonderful for your face and nails. I often rub olive oil into my skin after cleansing and wash it off after ten minutes. It does wonders on pimples. It also softens cuticles (if you need to cut them) and strengthens nails.

Inspiration

My inspiration right now is the British period television show ‘Downton Abbey’. Never before have I felt such a need to wear head pieces, evening gowns or long necklaces- that is, until now.
