Same Same

Have you noticed I basically wear the same items over and over in different ways? There are two reasons for this:

1. I take most of my photos for this during the week which means my outfit has to be work friendly. Aka wear black pants

2. This is actually the main reason, I aint rich! I do not have a lot of money to spend on clothes. I wish I did but its simply not the case. I pay for rent, day care, groceries, gas, bills, nappies, nappies, nappies and then save whats left for our end of year family vacay.

I have noticed it means my posts are becoming a bit repetitive so I will try and get some weekend outfits where I have a little more freedom to wear whatever aka track pants.

On Saturday we made a very last minute decision to go to Auckland City Limits. Being so last minute I scrambled this outfit together from things in my wardrobe and topped it off with some cheap sunglasses from Glassons and one of Paul’s hats.

The festival itself was OK (I know, shoot me). To be honest I only went for Kendrick and I am 100% one of those people who only knows his radio songs, but, he is AH-mahzing live!

The highlight of the day though was finding the Moustache Milk and Cookie bus on site and going back home to my little sleeping baby, first weekend day away from him was a struggle!

Ps – sorry for the low quality photos! They were all taken via iPhone burst for Instagram purposes only. I realised in hindsight that I should’ve shot this so I found the only ones where I had some of my upper lip and none of my second chin. There were 75 to chose from by the way and only 4 made the cut!

Having a blog attached to Maia and Marley has always been a dream of mine. A big part of this is going tobe outfit posts which is something I am terrified of. I’m not at all comfortable in front of the camera and feel like an obnoxious prick prancing around asking people to take photos of me but here goes, outfit post number one.

I’ve been waiting for a special occasion to wear the India Set and a friends wedding yesterday was the perfect excuse. It’s great for all of your summer events as its light, airy and deceptively flattering. Cropped two pieces often scare people but they actually show the flattest part of your torso and this skirt hides food babies perfectly.

I was out all day so decided to flag the heels and went with some cute strappy sandals instead, p.s they were only $10! To dress it up a bit I added some big earrings and tied the neck tie to create a choker, an idea I stole from one of our brand reps.

I want to use outfit posts not only to showcase Maia and Marley but to show you how you can incorporate our styles into your existing wardrobe. I won’t be dressed in head to toe Maia and Marley in every post and have some in mind where I won’t be wearing anything from the line at all. Everything I wear will be from my closet, creating looks that are real and that I actually wear. No one shops at just one place so I want these outfit posts to be a realistic reflection of someones wardrobe.

 

So, thank you for reading, I truly appreciate it.
