fancy pants

It's a laid back Fancy Pants this week, as I've barely gotten out of my jammies. I saved you looking at me in my bedroom attire and put something on equally as comfortable - this tshirt dress. And this year, I promised to spend more time lounging on this park bench hubby bought for me at our first Christmas in this home. And I have. Pondering life in the midday sun thinking about how wonderful my hubby is to make our backyard look so majestic.

Is it just me, or do these thongs look exactly like a pair that Gisele Bundchen sells? Well, these were about a third of the price from BigW. And just as cute!

And the print on this dress is so simple, yet so fabulous. It's my favourite lay-about dress. But good to wear out in public too. To the beach, to the pool, out to the shops. Anywhere really. At first, I thought I didn't like this colour as it reminded me of my royal blue school jumper, but as it turns out this kind of blue really pops.

It's your turn...

And remember, getting out of your tracky dacks is all that's required here. And to remind you how this works: below is where you put your photo. Yes, of you. Or your hubby, boyfriend, children and/or your best friend. The linky is up all week. Can't wait to see you all Fancy Pants! 

And I thought I'd add that my little boy Noah is pretty awesome too. Although during this week, I've felt he's had a little too much energy. Exhausting for me. But still, I love him to absolute pieces.

Here's my button:
a day in the life of us

And my American Inspiration:

Noah wears: SHIRT, Sprout (pre-loved by Madison, gift from mum). Mummy wears: TSHIRT DRESS, Lily Whyte ($20!). THONGS, BigW (on sale!). BANGLES, Target ($3!).

And how do you rest when your sick, tired and burnt out?


  1. I love, love, love this ;-D


  2. Gorgeous!!! Love the colour of your dress,definitely something I would lounge around in.
    How cute is Noah!!

  3. What a fab dress - so soft and comfortable, and yet still so very elegant :-)
    Great photos too!!

  4. I love that colour blue!
    I used to shy away from it (to be honest 98% of my wardrobe is black) but I have picked up a few pieces in that blue.

    I thought of you when I went shopping this morning. I picked up TWO pairs of the Gisele thongs from Novo for $20.


  5. That dress is stunning and I love the way the photo is B&W because it stands out beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

  6. oh Kym - i love everything about this post!! Firstly you look divine - rested, refreshed and radiant...secondly, that dress is heaven - every mother of youngens needs a dress like this (I am yet to find one as gorgeous as yours!). Thirdly, your photos are just amazing - i love the black and white with the vibrant blue is stunning! Hmmm.... you know you look like a gorgeous mixture of Antonia Kidman (Nicole's very foxy but less famous sister!) and Mia Freedman (used to be editor of, i think, Cosmo) - i love that last photo of you and Noah! very very cute xx
    ps - I've just returned from a weekend away - will try to link up tonight but might be tomorrow - as i'm exhausted ;-)

  7. You look pretty good for having been sick! Wish I did - I got told today I looked like death warmed up - HOW RUDE WAS THAT!! I love the edits on this and I have those shoes (the real ones I got on sale - they are SOOO comfy).

  8. Beautiful, Kymmie. Love the dress, love the image, love the colour, love the pattern, love the bench, love the child accessory!! x

  9. Am happy to see that you are up and about, which I hope means you are feeling better? That colour is the same as my high school jumper too, but you look fantastic in this dress. I can see why you love it!

  10. That dress looks super comfy and I love the colour.

  11. Fabulous photos, you look gorgeous :) Jen

  12. What a great idea - and what lovely photos. Looking as good as you do in these pics hopefully means your rest has done you the world of good!
    (And thanks for taking the time to stop by my little blog!)

  13. Love that dress! It looks so comfy, yet beautiful.

  14. lovely photos. look very relaxed. Charmaine

  15. I LOVE, LOVE your dress! Looks like a perfect substitute for comfy PJS. I do love this linky - inspires me to put more effort in!

  16. Those photos are fabulous and, just reading to the bottom of the page, you've written some wonderful things on your blog. I hope you're feeling well soon...gxo

  17. I hope the rest has done you well. You look gorgeous and I adore the photos - all editing? Must learn how to do that. A lovely way to have some pretty photos of yourself.

  18. Thank you all for your lovely comments. I had a play on my camera, and none of these photos were edited. Just a colour trick my camera does. I sure hope you join in on Fancy Pants next Sunday. xx

  19. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!
