JEAN GENIE • My runaround #spotmystyle #realstreetstyle lewk for 11 degrees here in #brisbane for client home visits .. a few knit layers - with a pop of 🧞‍♂️ inspired aqua and metallic bringing all the sunshiney Aladdin magical feels to my day ⚡️😘 #myfeelgoodfashion @thestylecoop :
What I love about leopard print is its versatility and even if you are not into the usual brown colour way monochrome versions like this #oldiebutgoodie @frenchconnection_au layered over cream rib knit turtleneck up the chic and turn down the rawr 🐯 factor - also look for coloured versions for more fun and games. :
:
These high waisted @drdenim_au are over 6 years old and by far my favourite brand for clients with minimal curves like me who want black skinnies - they keep their colour ✅ shape ✅ even when my shape changes 😂 and not a muffin top or butt crack for a country mile. 💃 I also highly recommend @decjubaofficial for their fit and range of coloured jeans @Topshop Maternity jeans
and for curvier clients, talent and models I love @jeanswest Curve Embracer @paige or @agjeans. :
: ⚡️How about you what jeans brands are your go to and why ? :
This 70s aqua linen sleeveless maxi dress was a great #vintage buy 4 yrs ago on a girls weekend in #Mullumbimby - I love wearing it as a #sleevelesscoat to add a pop of colour and mess with proportions a bit. :
:
These silver leather @myer Piper brand boots were a brilliant final sale buy last year under $50 low block heel for practicality and look good with everything. #metallicsareaneutral in my personalstyle book. :

Hope your #friyay is a great end to the week x :

CHOOS-DAY • When I started the #spotmystyle #realstreetstyle community 2yrs ago I wanted to celebrate stylish women of all ages stages, styles, shapes, ethnicities and their individuality, creativity and self expression. :
:
The first week there were about 100 posts across the two hashtags and I used to do a video roundup and name everyone I continued to do it, even though there were close to 300 women every week to include and the video got faster and faster - I didn’t want anyone to feel left out or invisible because they had shared and got involved, but it started taking 5 hrs out of my weekend with my family and everyday I was spending 2 hrs morning and night liking every picture and commenting - so I started a new page purely for @spotmystyle which now has over 1700 members and we passed a combined 110k posts with the book prep it’s just got too much. I really couldn’t keep active on both accounts but I also started to miss interaction every week with the wonderfully diverse sisterhood. 😍💕😍
:
So ... from now on I’m going to focus my efforts on trying to highlight my community here once a week on #chooschoosday along with a female artist I love.
:
This week I am highlighting @tylerfeder whose illustration makes me appreciate how beautifully diverse we #wonderwomen are - in the same way I love how diverse our community is. :
:
SWIPE >>Thanks to @jenliujones @the_second_runway @_shopportunity @badassbabyboomer @dianagabrielnyc @stylebygita @yummomummo @caribbean_cowgirl @katie_parrott @lookoflou for your individuality and for being your unique selves in all your glory. :
Remember to tag your personal style pics #spotmystyle #realstreetstyle so I can see you for next week’s roundup.
:
Remember #individualityisalwaysontrend #liveyourlifeinfullcolour xx and always #daremorecareless :

RECIPES • Leopard and lace and tweed oh my ! :
:
Like my cooking sometimes my #personalstyle is just throwing together the first things I see in the cupboard and creating a new recipe - what’s this mama ? - it’s “ Spanish Stew 🥘 👍😂😘” This is Wizard of Overalls ⚡️
:
:

I very rarely plan out my outfits unless I am travelling, doing a speaking event or presenting in front of a large corporate crowd. :
:
Why ?
:
I love surprises and spontaneity and my life after kids is pretty regimented and scheduled up the jacksy 😂 so it’s some daily fun and light relief to just go where my heart, imagination and whim takes me.
:
:
Sometimes outfit inspo starts with a scarf ( like this one that was my grandma’s ) other times it’s what’s clean ? When the kids were little my outfit formula = Tshirt + jeans + shock and awe tactics (bright lipstick ~big sunnies ~statement throw and go jacket) + happy shoes...... hang on 🤔 that’s all the time 😂 oh well if it ain’t broke ...😘 :
:
How about you ? Are you a planner ? What inspires your outfits ? What are your #instantstylesavers ? :

SK8TER GRL • It’s not Monday but my working week is starting today - mega shoot prep with multiple hats - #stylist #creative director and #producer as well as a few more standby props, 1st AD and gaffer 😂😂- couple of dozen talent of all ages to wrangle 😂and a shotlist that is “ ambitious” but I am lucky because we’ve got @kate_davissteer leading the team @mike_curtain_photography @staycconnolly and so many wonderful women of all ages shapes sizes and ethnicities have said YES to getting into swimmers on a wintry sunday ❄️🌈😘 plus
I get to #dowhatilove with amazing people.
:
:
Every time I do a campaign we aim to #levelup and push it to the max of what is possible with time, budget, womanpower and sometimes that is a bit scary but you need to always do things at work that give you that frisson of “ can we pull this off?” So you learn and create new skills and pathways - every job for me is a chance to extend myself, my team and bloom and grow together - a chance to live a #growthmindset so my girls see it in action and know to face the fear and the unknown and give it a good hot go ⚡️💕 #dowhatyoulove #rollwithit - some insta story action bts but we look forward to revealing the full #sunsoakedsisterhood @sunsoaked_swimresort campaign very soon. :

MAD HATTER • in my work I wear many hats both figuratively and literally. 😂 Love a good combo and who knew #leopardprint and #bakerboyhat was what was missing in my #hatdrobe arsenal ? @topshop it seems - hats are a major part of my personal style from berets to turbans and everything in between. :
:
Blame my dad and grandfather - both were right into their multitude of hats and whenever my mum bought a new outfit or clothes for me and I did the compulsory fashion runway (bless) my dad invariably would say “ is there a hat that goes with that ? “ 😂😂
:
Anyway this is a great fit and the baker boy shape is a cool update - you will have seen it dotted around my holiday pics on me and the girls ( link in stories to buy ) if you are a #leopardlover like me! :
How about you ? Are you a hat lover or maybe you steer clear ? Why ? :

NIENTE • When Tuesday’s todo list consisted of :
:
• wake up ✅
• swim ✅
• read ✅
• coffee ✅
• potter ✅
• pick up croissants ✅
• snooze ✅
• swim✅
• play UNO ✅
• hang up wet swimsuit ✅
• chuck on @zara sale dress slides and walk 50m to bar then dinner :
:
Only decision before dinner was :
Aperol spritz or Campari orange ? ;
:
Ah the serenity 😂😍
:
:
Just meditated and felt a huge wave of appreciation for the last surreal 6 weeks and how nice it was to have that amount of time to myself without having to email, respond, be available to clients and others - thank you 😊 🙏 for that space. :
:
Very thankful and suddenly aware of how much our attention, emotions, patience and brainpower is pulled in so many directions. A close friend mentioned it at the weekend talking about return from holidays and I hadn’t noticed properly until I meditated today and felt how busy already just after a week back my head was with expectations, minor anxieties, desires and pressures etc and there really is no drama or anything to stress about.. isn’t it weird.
I think your holiday self might just be as close to your zen self as you can get 😂 it is definitely mine - away to channel some of these vibes into today.
:
What about you ? Do you notice the change ? What do you find you stress about when you’re back from holiday ? or maybe you are able to keep that zen feeling ? What do you do ? :

CCC • You might have seen #cowboyboots back on the streets of Paris and London Fashion weeks so I pulled out my old beloved 16 yr old ones found at the side of the road in Surry Hills after one of the markets and had a bit of a play. I call this lewk Camo Chic Cowgirl 😂 and perhaps not the everyday look down the dog 🐕 park at 7am but who cares I loved it. From the streets of the 18th in Paris to the cul de sacs of Brisbane 😂
:
There is no denying that when you #daremorecareless in your #personalstyling in suburbia or small town or country village you are going to get some double takes, and probably some smart ass comments that can derail those clients who are just trying to push themselves out there for the first time but don’t let anyone’s comments make you think you can’t shouldn’t ought not to pull off whatever look is bubbling inside you. :
:
I have gotten those comments since I was 13 dressed in my brother’s navy corps uniform complete with hat with rara skirt and Dr martens - don’t worry about it I even had one of the butchers at the local shops say “Lost the rodeo love “ to which I just smile and said “Yee haw ! - you can borrow them anytime mate”’laughed and went on my merry way.
:
:
So #beboldaf if you want to if that is what makes your heart sing that day and don’t let anyone else’s comments crush your confidence. :

DAILY BREAD • #fridayflashback to popping out in Paris for the daily baguette.
:
I am so grateful to live in leafy suburbia surrounded by cockatoos, kookaburras, bushland and peace but as a citygirl at heart it was so nice to just walk out my door and go for dinner, supplies, gelato and pastries. I even loved having the windows open and hearing the sounds of the city. I love holidays in the country but I must admit cities enthrall me.
I lived in Paris for a year 27 yrs ago and after a brief time in Rome i definitely want to spend longer there at some@point and soak it all in. :
:
How about you ? Are you a citygal or country lover ? Where would you go and spend time like a local if you could ? :

BARE • Nothing to see here just a good old 47 year old Mama who’s forgotten her Scottish Presbyterian heritage for a red hot moment and taken a skinny dip selfie 😂
:
I am not known for getting my kit off - it’s not a body issue or a shame thing - I am very happy in and with this amazing healthy body of mine and don’t give a monkeys about wandering around in swimwear , underwear or semi nude at home it’s just nude out in the world ... 🌍 perhaps due to a teeny bit of Scottish modesty coupled with a massive lack of practice ,because most of my early life in Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 being nude was usually accompanied by “you’ll get your death of cold”
:
Post pool encounters were followed by getting “chittery bites”
a treat to stop your teeth chattering 😂 usually hot chocolate or sausage roll my kids still call itheir post swim gelato or chocolate treat this. :
:

Hence I can honestly count the times I have been skinny dipping on one hand. :
But at our villa in Tuscany near Siena my children who have grown up in Australia have such carefree abandon being nude and because of the reduced harshness of the sun they were loving nudey swims in early morning and afternoon - without rashvests and I thought why am I not skinny dipping just because it’s not what I’ve always done ? Screw that ! :
:

Secluded villa in Tuscan countryside ✅
High hedges ✅
Water temp of 26 ✅
:
:
It was utterly wonderful and made me think a) I need a pool b) I need to skinnydip more often - not that I will be getting nude at Southbank but who’s says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks - #growthmindset In effect right here. Aren’t holidays bloody wonderful ? :
:
What about you ? Do you or did you bare it all with gay abandon ? :
What #mindsetmakeover have you had recently ? It’s always good to challenge those subconscious ingrained ways of thinking, doing and living. No matter how old you get. :
Always pushing to #daremorecareless :

VAMOS • Ms 11 has always walked or rather skipped to the beat of her own drum. She loved the story of Peter Pan as a small child but instead of loving Tinkerbell like most little girls she wanted to be Peter Pan - who seemed to have the best adventures - she was proper aghast at 4 when I told her they didn’t make Peter Pan costumes or merchandise and wanted me to call the government to complain about it - ( I agree that there is a lack of Peter Pan merch) she went out to the garden and picked green leaves and made a book week costume by sewing and gluing leaves onto a green Tshirt •
she would tell me in the morning what adventures she had had that night in Never Never Land and flew with Peter. “second star to the right and straight on til morning” - during this time she also told me she wanted go to South America because that’s where they had flown together. The years have passed and Ms 11 has a wide range of interests but when choosing high schools she was fixated on getting into one (that none of her friends are going to ) but she would get the chance to do a Spanish immersion program learning 60% of her schooling in Spanish. We returned today to finding out her application and interview was successful which is fantastic news. As promised her dad sister and i will all learn Spanish too to support her and the immersive environment - maybe even all have a South American adventure together. :
:
Do you or your daughters “Go your Own Way ?” Or do you worry too much about what others are doing, following the pack, staying safe and treading well worn paths.
:
Do you stay in your bubble and avoid failure or break out take a risk and do something new and adventurous ? :
:
do you #daremorecareless ? :
:
How do you support your kids in their choices ? :

TO THE MAXIMUS • As we near the end of our 6 wk extravaganza trip with these two - I continue to be impressed with how they have handled themselves on their first overseas trip - and how their bond as sisters has grown. Apart from a couple of days with family and friends they have slept, played and eaten together as a wee unit and have jumped into every activity, new experience and food we have put before them with great gusto and enthusiasm. :
:
Today’s #gladiatorschool - I watched them iin a male dominated group of 11-13 yr old boys hold their own and debunk any negative #fightlikeagirl or #genderspecific prejudice even from the parents - who asked me “why the girls would even want to do such a boy thing ... “ 🙄 :

I was in awe of their quiet strength and confidence in taking up space,making themselves heard. During training I noticed ms 8 fit and fiercely competitive decide to lap the 12 year old boys and when they tried to stop her she gently pushed them to the side to make way - when throwing heavy sandbags around a circle I saw Ms 11 garner major kudos for her throwing skills and fast hands - at first they obviously were avoiding throwing to girls as any drop resulted in 10 sec penalties but soon realised they had misjudged them.
:
during the full battle tournament I was proud to see them make their mark and choose to pair up as a team. :

Nothing was said like “we showed them” or anything but it made me think how far things have come yet so far to go - how often do we make gender specific choices and judgements ? :
:
I try and challenge my own ingrained subconscious filter by asking myself “if they were boys would I tell them to watch out and not climb so high, to not wrestle or be loud - I hope to teach my girls to recognise those society filters wherever they may be from older relatives or outside society and push back so they truly develop their own individuality without fetter to #daremorecareless 💕⚡️

FRESCO AF • Just upping my #wallgame with this old thing aka 1st AD #frescos at Nero’s wife Poppeas villa near #pompeii - this 100 room + villa that was destroyed in the 76 AD eruption of #vesuvius was discovered in mid 19c and is the world’s most revered and splendid example of a Roman imperial villa - we were there with maybe 5 other people as it is in a pretty dodgey suburb and very little signage - our guide Felicia is a fresco restorer here and told us to make sure we visited - my Instastories and photos can not do this place the justice and awe it’s sheer raw splendour and surviving majesty deserves - walking freely through it I felt like I was transported back in time - but in my fantasy I am living in the fresco area with Olympic swimming pool and spa not the black and white striped servants quarters. A must see for any #pompeiitaly Itinerary and lover of #romanhistory #architecture #frescofan even our two girls were wowed and were happy to spend a couple of hours here. :
We stumbled on an amazing place on way back to station (see instastories) and made new friends it was like we were in Rosarias kitchen as guests - the kids wanted to come home and rest so I managed to duck out of our Airbnb a block away from the #pompeiiruins And get another hour in seeing places we had got to on our guided tour. :
:
Who else is fascinated by history ? I especially love social history and seeing how people lived. #sorrynotsorry for the pics if it’s not your jam -thanks for all the lovely DMs - I am glad so many of you are enjoying our trip xx 😘 off to Roma tomorrow for the last five days 😭😭😭😭 I am soaking it all in - the sights, smells, sounds, textures and tastes 😍 to enjoy and savour when we’re back.

AMA TE STESSO • I stood out on the beaches of Italy 🇮🇹 not only was I the only person in a #onepieceswimsuit but I was #sunsafechic in my UPF 50+, @sunsoaked_swimresort and #sunprotection add in large hat sunscreen and glasses -not only were most women wearing bikinis, no hats but no kids were in #longsleevedswimsuits like mine or in #rashvests it was all very nostalgic and 1970s in more ways than one - :
:
The other thing Ive noticed is how Italian women don’t give a flying fuck about whether they are #beachbodyready 😂 which was so awesome there was a beach 🏖 ✅ ☀️✅ and a 👙✅ :
:
No one gave a monkeys about squidgey bits cellulite and I loved it how glorious and how utterly divine they all looked too - to the 70 something lady in metallic mustard bikini with silver curls you were a goddess💕the woman who loved her 1990s Ibiza fluorescent rave look so much they were rocking it with their kids in tow I fucking salute you gals 💕 to the mamas breastfeeding in their Itsy fucking bitsy tropical print bikinis whilst wrangling a toddler in arm bands you look splendido - I cover up not because i give a shit about my thread veins or about my au naturale 47 year old body but because of the damaging and ageing effects of the Australian sun - I love my body in its 48th year and all it has done for me and my girls - whille we are at it ageing is not a dirty word in Italy - I love how women over a certain age are celebrated and allowed to be vital, sensual and desirable I saw you 👀 xx you all looked divine xx 😘 :

FIRENZE FRENZY • There is a reason I call myself #therealstreetstylist and started #spotmystyle and #realstreetstyle because if you are wanting stunning jetset glamorous mum fashion blogger images with multiple outfits then move along 😂😂😂 you’ve come to the wrong feed- packhorse mum with small holiday capsule wardrobe rotated and sensible walking shoes ✅ youv seen all these clothes before if you are not bored with them I am 😍⚡️ but glad I packed light as we head off again tomorrow to an island and offline for a week. 😍
:
The Florence that you see on postcards is busy and crowded in July and no wonder - it was my second time but gasps were still thick and fast -the girls were suitably impressed at the Duomo - we didn’t do the Uffizi as we wanted to spend as little time queueing and let the girls’ natural interest guide the day so the Pinocchio workshop @bartolucci_official ✅ - the #pontevecchio was jammed as was any place to take more than our family selfie photo 😍• as soon as we headed to the other side the crowds thinned out and the pace was less frenetic - we wandered into museo.laspecola which was utterly mesmerising zoological and mineral exhibits the girls loved as were the frescos, ceilings and beautiful deserted office wings that we wandered through into the tranquil gardens behind - the trattoria we wanted to go to was booked out for the Bolshoi Ballet 😂😍 but we found a great trattoria that had a locals vibe in Piazza Santo Spirito the food was awesome • then another gelato before we crossed #ponteallacarraia where you get a better pic of Ponte Vecchio with less people - by that point it was all about the gelato 😂 we wanted to check out #palazzodavanzati where you can see how Florentines lived but it is only open until 1.50pm ... every second Thursday or something 🙄 such random opening times 😂 I love it 😍 it has given us much hilarity on this leg of the trip 🇮🇹swipe >>>

LIGHTTIME • One of the many joys of this trip has been no work or school with it not getting dark until 10pm so we have enjoyed dinners out with the girls - tonight we went to modern Tuscan #lortoeunquarto recommended to us - the girls dressed up - it was super cute - the menu was so interesting and when we ordered we were worried the girls would eat virtually nothing as everything was a bit “modern” cuisine - both of us looked around at the licked clean immaculate plates which had been full of carpaccio of pork, beetroot and mint penne, boar ragu pappardelle and then some - they regaled over it all - we underestimated their palate - never again - they now want The Man to dust off his pasta maker and get back into making pasta with them - aah travels 😍🇮🇹😍
