I’m so excited as I have been recognised for being a Stylish Blogger. This means I’ve been tagged and I will need to comply with a few simple rules and after what can only be described as a “fleeting chance to flaunt my ego”, I must then pass the baton on to 15 other bloggers I regard as “stylish”.
Thanks to the ever stylish Emma K from Cocktails at Naptime for awarding me with a Stylish Blogger Award.
Here’s the fine print:
1) Thanks and linkage back to my pal. 2) Share 7 things about myself. 3) Award 15 recently discovered bloggers the Stylish Bloggers Award and 4) contact them and tell them that they, too, are Stylish.
So here goes it, rather than show embarrassing photos of my past style blunders and rather than talk about style icons or give you seven unknown facts about me, I’ve decided to show you my seven “can’t live without items in my wardrobe”.
bigwords’ seven must-haves in her wardrobe
2) Camper platforms
I don’t wear heels often as I am not working and I don’t go out enough to places which require them. My Camper platforms are the most comfortable heels in the world. People always comment on them and I can wear them all night.
3) RM Williams cowboy boots
These trusty boots, which I got made for me, have been my best friend through three pregnancies. When I wasn’t wearing thongs I was wearing these. I love these boots. I must say though that I need a bit of distance from them for awhile, but I will wear them again.
My new favourites sunglasses of choice. I have two pairs. A classic black Jackie Ohh style and an original Wayfarer. They keep the sun out, have great lenses and I feel cool when I’m wearing them.
5) A bag – clutch or over-the-shoulder. I love them all.
My current favourite is my new little Oroton number I got in the sales! When I’m wearing it, it means I’m out child free! No massive nappy bag to lug around.
6) Target skinny leg jeans (That’s not me in the photo my arse is much bigger than that!)
Target jeans are the only jeans which actually fit my body shape. I got two pairs of these jeans nearly two years ago and am so happy to be able to fit into them again. The short leg style is a must for me and finally I don’t have to get my jeans taken up. I wear them constantly. I’m looking for some new jeans suggestions though, got any?
7) Country Road maxi skirt in black (model wearing stone coloured version of the skirt)
Nikki from Styling You got me on to this skirt and I’ve been wearing it constantly ever since. It’s slimming, versatile, doesn’t need ironing and surprisingly cool to wear in hot weather. Love it.
And I know I’m only meant to go to seven, but what outfit would be complete without an icy cold glass of G&T with a slice of lime.
They’re my style must-haves. What are your’s?
And now I pass the Stylish Blogger Award to –

I LOVE it! And I love your 7, no 8, stylish things. I have an extensive thong wardrobe too and those Camper wedges are fantastic!!
Oh yay, me!! I hear good things about those Camper shoes & have been spying some gorgeous cowboy boots at RMW. We could shop together, i have Oroton handbags & maxi skirts from CR, but my favourite real woman skinny jeans are from Trenery, they fit so perfectly with boots in Winter. I’m more a Birkenstock girl, thanks to pregnancy, i hear you!! Love it, will do my post soon, love Posie
We could shop together!! That would be fun! Just so you know, if you pop to the Camper site they have a huge sale on. They post all over Australia and if you get them not in a box it’s cheaper postage. Let me know when you do your post so I can pop over and check it out. You can do what you want @stylingyou did a fab one with all her fashion disasters and @emmakaufmann did a list of 7 things you might not know about her.
Camper sale on now! xx
I am LOVING those sunglasses. What do you wear on top of your maxi skirt (I also have one in black) but get very lost on what to put on top?
Thanks! Black Havaianas are my footwear of choice also, and I agree that the G&T goes nicely with them.
Thanks for including me in your list and sending me the award… though I am like the most anti-stylish person in the whole world! LOL
I agree that not all tops wrk with it, but @stylingyou had a few suggestions on old post she did (it was a style challenge for woogsworld) I wear mine with a long CR tank top and then I layer it with a hip length shirt. You could wear it with a belt too. I would love to wear it with a funky tight tee shirt, but my flabby belly will not allow that! Instead I wear with a loose t-shirt which again, sits on the hip. A pair of thongs or wedges/platforms work well with it. Are CR delivering to Qatar? That could be dangerous!!!!!! he he
Thank you, I might go check out camper on wednes!
Hello! Wow, I love that skirt… I want one!
I’ve had my eye on that skirt since you bought it & those glasses are beyond divine!!! Thanks for giving me the award – I just linked back.
I love your list. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no style. Zero. Nada. Never going to happen in this lifetime.
Thanks for the tag too! Unfortunately I’ve already been tagged for this wonderful award….and as you will see from the link below….my list is slightly (okay incredibly, awkwardly) different from yours:
Thank you so much!! And such illustrious company – I am really flattered 🙂
Will probably do a little acceptance ceremony in my grateful post on saturday!
Thanks a million ♥
Can I just say, heart heavy with disappointment, that thongs means something else entirely in the UK?
Mine is from Zara (same same).
yeah I back up steve – I was waiting to see some ‘all cellulite bared’ pics of you in a UK thong… so was very upset when you just had a pic of what we call flip flops. Kudos to you for wearing skinny jeans – I do not suit those at all as I have a lot of junk in my trunk!
Thanks so much for my award. Very exciting!
How is it I didn’t ever respond to this fabulous post??
Thank you SO much for my award – I haven’t forgotten about it, and have plans for my acceptance post – just need some time to put it together (it’s going to be embarrassing!)
Love your style must-haves.
We wear similar sunnies, and after going years and years without wearing thongs, I now live in mine too. I also had a favourite pair of jeans, that everyone always told me my arse looked great in – but I shrunk out of them and haven’t found another favourite since. Those jeans will be my consolation if (when) I put the weight back on! They’re from Jeans West – which I’ve always found to have a great variety of styles for all different shapes & sizes.
