This MONSE striped shirt is my favourite of the season. It’s a classic, reinvented. The cool and endlessly versatile piece, that you can wear in a variety of ways. The shirt has subtle shoulder padding, a perfect V-neck shape, oversized sleeves, with statement buttons, in a luxury silk blend.
I styled this shirt with a MONSE pencil skirt, crafted from satin back crepe, and structured with a fold over detail, that reveals the striped satin panel beneath.
This MOSCHINO pouch ties all of the colours in together and adds a playful element to the outfit. Add a kick-ass pair of heels and you’re Done! Rebecca xx
I recently collaborated with one of my favourite mum blogs NIKA TRAVELS. NIKA TRAVELS is a lifestyle journal founded by my beautiful friend and soon to be mummy of two, Tania Reinert. A Russian from Spain,who lives in Hong Kong with her two year old daughter, Nika, and currently pregnant with her son.
We met at a mutual friends wedding in California and became friends straight away. The blog is a must visit for practical advice, for parents on the go. It includes travel, stories, adventure guides, nutrition & wellness advice, and style tips from parents around the world.
I was lucky enough to shoot this article when Hamilton was about 6 months old in my home. It was such a treat to have a professional photographer come over and shoot pictures of my son.
So grateful to have these images and memories. Many of which are now in frames around the house. You can follow @Nikatravels HERE and read more blog posts HERE from other multitasking mummies. You can follow the founder Tania @tlikebibbletea HERE.
Below is my Q&A …
Rebecca, Hamilton and Minka
I live in Pokfulam, Hong Kong, with my eight-month-old son Hamilton, my husband Angus and our Australian Bulldog Minka. We are from Sydney, Australia, where we both grew up. We moved to Kong Kong six years ago and it is where we plan to stay and raise a family.
How did you become a blogger? When I was designing knitwear, I used to document how I was wearing the knits intertwined with my own wardrobe. These were the images that were getting the most likes and some were going viral. This made me start to think about blogging more seriously.
What are your kitchen staples for your family? Every Sunday I spend time creating a meal plan for the week. I’m more conscious of the food that I’m putting into my body since we mostly home cook our meals. I love using a slow cooker so dinner can be prepared in the morning and I try and stay away from artificial flavors and preservatives and ultimately, make an effort to eat healthier.
Top holiday destination (with kids)?We love The Four Seasons Nam Hai in Hoi An Vietnam. They have a kid’s club with a pool. There is also a puree menu available for young children which uses fresh produce mostly sourced within the hotels gardens. The staff are friendly and welcoming with children.
How do you make sure your partner creates a bond with the little one?My husband has had a strong bond with Baby Hamilton since he was born. He starts work at 6 am and we pick him up every night at 5:30 with baby and dog in toe. So, they spend quality time together on a daily basis before we put Hamilton to bed at around 8. And our weekends are all about spending time as a family.What does the word education mean to you?Education is something ongoing, you never stop learning.
What values you would like to instill in / pass down to your little ones?I want to teach Hamilton to be a kind person… And always help those who are less fortunate than us. I want him to be empathetic and intuitive. I will always teach him to listen to his heart and be guided by his intuition. I will teach him that he can achieve whatever he desires in his life as long as he is determined and works hard. To treat people the way you want to be treated, and not to be judgmental. But above all I just want him to be happy and content.
The dreaded jet lag, how do you cope with it? I try get on with my day without napping.
Your favorite holiday memory with Ham? Watching his little face seeing snow for the first time.
Co-sleeping or separate rooms? We Co-sleep. I cuddle baby Hamilton all night and I love getting woken up with his beautiful eyes, big smiles and cuddles, it melts my heart and is such a beautiful start to the day.
IPads and technology, what’s your take on kids and screen time? Essential. When my son is having a hard time teething it is sometimes the only thing that will distract him from his sore mouth. I don’t think that 15 mins of screen time here and there is detrimental. My hubby and I both loved cartoons growing up. We also have a TV in the car and have his favourite cartoons on DVD which we put on if he is ever really restless. There is nothing worse than a screaming baby in a car.
Motherhood in a nutshell…Motherhood has taught me so much. It’s teaching me what life’s all about. Looking at him and seeing little parts of your husband and little parts of your wider family. Gaining a new perspective on life. Watching him sleeping. Holding his tiny hands. Finding yourself doing the most ridiculous things to make him laugh. I’m so proud of bringing Hamilton into this world. He’s the most beautiful and exciting thing I’ve ever created.
