Lauren or Mrs Lauren Roney as she is known on instagram is a loved up married Mummy to one sweet little girl, living a sparkly life in the suburbs of Brisbane. She spends her time chasing her gorgeous wee girl and a bargain.

1.     Describe your personal style in 3 words

Casual Timeless Sparkle , I love timeless stylish pieces that I can add my personal touch too, a statement necklace here , a leopard scarf there. 

2.     What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?

Well, I’ve recently discovered the Brand Feather & Noise and have a stash of their gorgeous lace dresses waiting patiently to be worn…

3.     Shoes or Handbags?

Handbag, I was lucky enough to receive a Louis Vuitton Speedy for my 30th and have since sourced a few too many gorgeous vintage pieces and bags. Can not fault the quality and timeless elegance

4.     What do you love to wear on a night out without kids?

A fabulous frock and heels, oh how I miss heels… and lippy.  I don’t wear lippy so much now I have a beautiful bebe I want to kiss constantly.

5.     What has been one of your most recent ‘fashion fails’?

I don’t like to think I have “fashion fails”, more regretful purchases, remember said lace dresses still hanging in my wardrobe begging to be worn.

6.     Accessories: Less or More?

More, more , more, I love a necklace, pretty pair of shoes, bangles… Accessories can totally change your look and recycle an outfit in an instant

7.     What’s on your Wish List for this season?

Over sized lace blouse, anything off the shoulder, dress shorts and wedge heels.  

8.     Shoes: Heels or flats?

Flats, I love a sexy heel but spend most of my days rocking cute and comfy flats, flats are the best for chasing crazy bebes

9.     Favourite designer?

I love Louis Vuitton for handbags, Samantha Wills for fine jewellery and Fleur Wood always has beautiful pieces. I have found a huge amount of affordable and more individual fashion in instagram lately and I am loving all the fabulous little stores. Like Feather & Noise, Fetching LeopardDress Temple and Sizeable

10.  What is your go to ‘Mum-On Duty’ outfit?

Ripped Jeans and a comfy striped tee, cute beads and metallic slides

11. What are you favourite ‘Affordable Fashion’ buys?

Simple tees, scarfs and beads, all can make you feel fresh and give your wardrobe a lift and injection of new.

12. Where do you like to shop for your kid/s?
Target has the best kids clothes hands down for my little bebe, she is petite and I find the Target clothes last wash after wash and have great designs.
13. What is you best tip for dressing for a special occasion?
Plan ahead, seriously plan every detail so you are not rushed, try on your outfit with the shoes, accessories and underwear and make sure it fits well, works together and will suit the event and potential weather.
14. If you could only get your hair, make up or a spray tan done for a night out which one would you choose?
Oh tough, probably a tan as I think a touch of bronze lifts even the most tired of Mums moods…
Thanks again Lauren xx
