I've had an unintended six month hiatus from The Edit series... I think the last one that I posted was back in April! Woops.
A few life events have occured, which totally threw me off my game, but I'm back now and ready to go.
I'm not sure how many more monthly edits I will do... I might do them until the new year and then start posting my favourite outfits in a more relaxed and organic way. I'm finding that being strict with a posting timetable is making me think too hard about the outfits that I want to share, rather than sharing what I really love or am currently inspired by.
So, next year onwards, still expect style posts, but expect them to be a bit more random - sometimes a few a month, sometimes none!
I love going crazy with my outfits and dressing up for fancier occasions. However, my day to day style is very chill and laid back. I go for comfort over everything else. If its not comfy, I don't buy it. For today's blog post, I have put together two outfits to share with you all, that I'm currently loving on a weekly basis. Both outfits are a bit different in feel, but they are both comfortable and suitable for this warmer time of year (with the odd chilly day here and there, of course).
Both outfits can also be dressed up and dressed down, depending on the look that you are aiming for. That's another thing that I LOVE when choosing clothes - pieces that can be worn for a variety of occasions, so you can get as many wears out of them as possible!

The weather has taken a turn for the better and it now feels like Spring! Hooray! What will we all moan about now?
It was so nice to get out and enjoy the warm sun and not have to wear layers upon layers, of knits and coats. The blossom and bulbs were blooming and the birds were chirping away - seriously, what's not to love about Spring?
When was the last time that you had some “me time” or did something that was just for you?
I sometimes find that, being a mum to two small children, it's easy for me to forget about myself and what makes me feel good. So much energy is directed towards making the children happy and keeping them clean and well fed, that by the end of the day all I want to do is crawl into bed and pass out.
Weeks (or months) can go by, without so much as a thought towards my own well being. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change it for the world, I love raising my children and seeing the lovely little humans that they are becoming. But sometimes, doing little things for myself is absolutely needed, to keep functioning as a person.
When you are a new mum, all of the lack of attention to your own self care can create a “not feeling like yourself” kind of vibe. It's nice to find ways to start feeling like yourself again.
