Hi everyone! The Mummy Style Files is expanding! Every month I am going to feature another fashionable mummy on the blog and have them answer a super fun little questionnaire about their style and wardrobe. All of the Style Files will be published on the main site but also collated in a separate tab for easy reference. Today is the first instalment with Emily from @melbournefashionmum. Below is a little bit about her and her answers to my questions! If you have any super chic mama’s you’d like me to feature just send me an email or comment below. xx
A Melbourne Mum of two with an active 4 year old boy and an inquisitive 1 year old girl.I have a background in Beauty therapy / Health Science – I worked for Jurlique for many years ( an Australian/organic skin care company). Now I have the flexibility of being with my babies and working on building / developing projects with my husband & having an input with the design/styling part of things (the fun stuff). I love travelling and visiting new places & have a passion for Style ( interior and fashion ).
1. Describe your personal style in 3 words
Polished, Classic, Effortless
2. What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
3. Shoes or Handbags?
I am a sucker for both however if it’s going by the amount I have, I would have to say shoes (a women can never have enough)
4. What do you love to wear on a night out without kids?
An amazing dress paired with some beautiful heels
5. What has been one of your most recent ‘fashion fails’?
Buying uncomfortable shoes. I buy thinking I will “Break” them in……… then I never end up wearing them!! TIP- buy shoes that are like slippers on your feet the first time you buy them.
6. Accessories: Less or More?
Less – One or two statement pieces is more than enough!
7. What’s on your Wish List for this season?
A new pair of Statement sunglasses for summer & Balenciaga sandals
8. Shoes: Heels or flats?
Both depending on the occasion – flats win when I am on “mum duty”
9. Favourite designer?
I have so many but a stand out is Zimmerman.
10.What is your go to ‘Mum-On Duty’ outfit?
I must say I always make an effort even if I am “mum on duty”. It varies between Sportswear (lululemon or Stella McCartney) or Jeans and t- shirt paired with a blazer or cashmere sweater. In the warmer months an easy to wear dress, silk or denim shorts.
Thanks again Emily. Be sure to follow her on Instagram @melbournefashionmum and stay tuned for her blog coming soon! x
