So I’m completely brain dead, slightly jet lagged and really cold right this minute. Writing a blogpost probably isn’t the greatest idea, but if I wait for a moment when my brain is at full capacity, we could be waiting awhile.
Instead, I’m going to leave you with some thought provoking photos of me looking wistfully over Luna Park. While it may look like I’m deep in thought and reflection, what I’m really thinking is “I’m so cold… I wonder if they have hotdogs down there?”
And with that I leave you with a quote from Parks and Rec. Why? Because nothing else in this blog posts makes any sense that’s why.
“Zerts are what I call desserts. Tray-trays are entrées. I call sandwiches ‘sammies,’ ‘sandoozles,’ or ‘Adam Sandlers.’ Air conditioners are ‘cool blasterz.’ I call cakes ‘big ol’ cookies.’ I call noodles ‘long-ass rice.’ Fried chicken is ‘fry-fry chicky-chick.’ Chicken parm is ‘chicky-chicky-parm-parm.’ Chicken cacciatore? ‘Chicky-cach.’ I call eggs ‘pre-birds,’ or ‘future birds.’ Root beer is ‘super water.’ Tortillas are ‘bean blankets.’ And I call forks ‘food rakes.” – Tom Haverford
Stripe Boxy Tshirt Dress with Tail by Bassike
Pop quiz, hotshot: It’s 35 degrees, you’re headed to a family BBQ with kids, dogs, alcohol and a whole lot of food. What do you wear? WHAT DO YOU WEAR?!
Answer: A giant, oversized T-shirt dress that you can tuck into your undies when the day gets too hot. Duh
Where do you go when you need such a thing? Well you go back to Bassike, pronounced like basic, but providing so much more.
While you can now get a lot more from Bassike than just basics, they originally established themselves in 2006 as the go to brand for (I want to say basics but I won’t) everyday wardrobe staples.
Their jersey pieces are 100% organic cotton, light as a feather, but weighty enough to be worn without feeling naked and they get an A plus for their “Made in Australia” tag. Honestly, I never thought I could feel so luxurious in, what is essentially, an oversized T-shirt.
I’m all about pyjama dressing these days. Give me something that I could quite easily wear to bed, to the beach and to dinner with heels. Call it lazy, call it fashion, call it whatever you want.
All I know is that in this bad boy, I will be having seconds, maybe thirds… and definitely dessert.
On that note, Happy Australia Day you flaming galas! Let the BBQs commence.

There is no better feeling than pulling on your most favourite, oversized sweatshirt. It’s like wearing a hug.
It’s one of my favourite thing to wear in the colder months.
To compensate for my top half, well let’s face it, I’m wearing leggings and I have no make up on, so let me rephrase that. To compensate for the rest of my sloppy appearance, I throw on my strappy heels and all of a sudden I’m ready to take on the world… or coffee, maybe a fabric appointment or two. Let’s not get carried away.
It’s only Tuesday and to be fair, I spend most of it sitting down.
