The stylish baby lawyer came home last weekend.
She finished work on Friday afternoon after a very heavy week of lawyering, headed home (with her washing in tow) to Mumma.
Gosh I miss her living at home – when she walks through the door it’s like a bright light switches on.
It’s at that specific moment that we realise exactly what we have missed.
Jonny and I are always like little excitable kids waiting for her to arrive, when her car pulls on to the drive, we pick Lula up and dash out to greet her.
The special welcome party always puts a huge smile on her dial.
We only saw the birthday girl the weekend before when we celebrated 24 years of her awesomeness – so I felt like we had struck gold seeing her again so soon.
Even though Beckie and I talk several times a day, there is something special about her coming home.
Yes, home cooked food (plus a few glasses of champagne) and a big catch-up were in order.
Time for her to clear her head and let go of adult stresses for a couple of days.
Time for us to savour every second of her infectiousness.
After a lie in, on Saturday morning we all headed to the beach (Lulabelle included). The little sass queen even posed for a doggy photoshoot 😉
Somehow putting our feet on the sand and listening to the ocean makes us all feel reconnected and peaceful…it’s also the complete opposite to city life for our precious girl.
Baby Lawyer Update:
Beckie is truly loving Law life, she has hit the ground running and is embracing every second of her fast corporate lifestyle. Her days are long, but she works with some truly fabulous people, colleagues that she already calls friends.
You can tell just how proud we are right?
On Sunday morning, we snapped a quick Mumma Daughter pic, before I dashed off to Mimco for the day *insert very sad Mumma face*
Beckie then headed back to the city to prepare herself for the coming week of pressurised deadlines, study and looking corporately stylish.
Jonny and I were invited to a new store opening on the coast.
So as soon as 4pm hit at Mimco, I slipped into something more appropriate and headed out for a cheeky champagne to celebrate the opening of Hunted Concept.
Hunted Concept is the brainchild of two friends Amy and Rachel.
Rachel is the hair guru, Amy the style lover – together they have created a new concept in boutique shopping.
The destination experience.

What I Wore
I (like most stylists) have lusted after the Balmain Double Breasted Jacket (link to Net-a-Porter) but at over $3000 a pop, there was no hope of it sitting in my wardrobe.
Jenna Jacket in Black (I’m wearing the 14) $79.00 Hanellei | Blouse Witchery (no longer available) | Jeans: Ava Rips Jeans* $79.00 Frankie and Co | Heels Windsor Smith from last year | Sunnies: No.1 Karen Walker
When I’m unsure what to wear, I ALWAYS fall into my comfort style personality zone: Classic.
Jeans, a smart blouse and a jacket, finished off with a heel, never fails to make me feel good. No matter what the occasion.
I was nattering too much on Sunday night and completely forgot to get an outfit pic, so I re-staged the look yesterday – I also added a small black sparkly Mimco pouch to the mix on the night.
I’m a curvy girl. I have hips, chunky thighs and a butt (I’m not being harsh on myself here, just honest) BUT when I show my curves (and not trying to hide them) I actually feel more confident and streamline.
The key to pulling this look off is balance.
Dark or black denim always works a treat for pear-shaped girls (I still adore my lighter denim, but for a A/W evening look, I always go darker).
Skinny jeans are your friend – I honestly believe they can work for everyone.
I’ve added a nude colour blouse to break up the heaviness of the black, while still remaining neutral and feminine. The blouse is half-tucked (covering my butt at the back).
Leaving the jacket (shorter and nipped in at the waist works well to balance out my curves) to be the hero.
Don’t expect this jacket to be the same quality as the Balmain at over 3K – it’s made from polyester, but well worth the compromise and the price for me!
