Pyjama Party

Bringing nightwear to daywear on so many levels: think dark lips, pseudo-pyjamas and talking about that excellent Burberry Event at the end of Fashion Week.

Equipment Printed Shirt – MAC Cosmetics ‘Diva’ Lipstick – Burberry Aviators – Darling ‘Trophy Wife’ Nail Polish

On this crisp and sunny Mother’s Day, Mum and I could think of nothing better to do than hang out in pyjamas all day (bed hair compulsory). I cheated and went for pseudo-sleepwear, which Equipment always does a fabulous job of – this tiny aquamarine, geometric print is too cute to handle. Try as I might, I couldn’t seem to find this particular shirt online, but there are so many equally adorable, tiny-printed, snooze-worthy ones. Oh Equipment… you spoil us…

Over tea in the sun, conversation stumbled upon the topic of these Burberry Aviators – “I wish I were young enough to pull off shiny glasses like that,” said Mum. Of course you can, Mother Dearest. With Uni madness taking off just as Fashion Week finished up, I hadn’t had a chance to tell her about my favourite moments at Fashion Week, of which the Burberry Eyewear Aviator Launch was definitely right up there. Consider me starstruck when Rachel Taylor, Lisa Mitchell and Kate Waterhouse are swanning around the impossibly grand George St flagship store in celebration of Burberry’s new aviators (they’ll be out in Sunglass Hut stores soon, I believe).

That night, I wore this same lipstick, ate cute Brit canapés, enjoyed Life in Film live (hand-picked by Christopher Bailey – degrees of separation, people), and marveling at the fact that there were three more celebrations of the same scale in New York, Milan and Paris. Kudos, Sydney.

Mum enjoyed this story.

What did you all do for Mother’s Day? Breakfast in bed? Holiday in the Bahamas? Enlighten me.

P.S. after two years of blogging, I have finally ventured out the front of my house (as opposed to that back lane) to shoot a photo for this little URL… major milestone moment.
