One of our fave Instagrammers and personal stylists, Sarah Merrett - also known as Mumma Ain’t Mumsy - caught up with us to tell us a bit about herself, her style and this season's need-to-know trends!

How would you describe your style?

I really am a mixed bag! Everyday is different; overall I would probably say I am fairly classic, yet usually with a twist. I am a denim addict, I try to keep my style pretty stress-free and have a bit of fun.

Travel essentials?

Denim jacket, comfortable (mix and match) basics, pashmina style scarf, a couple of floaty dresses, comfy (but fun) sneakers, Kindle, sunscreen, family.

This season's must-haves?

This winter season I am loving the rich and decadent colour palette of maroons and mustards. These colours paired with denim or leather are definitely on the must-have list. We are also continuing to see a real throw back to the boho 70s vibes, however with much cleaner lines. Adding in a longline vest, flared sleeves or a little suede to an outfit is the perfect new-season update without needing a whole new outfit.

Favourite thing about Winter?

Definitely the layering! I am not a warm-weather girl at all. I love Winter fashion and layering tops, jackets, scarves, boots, denim, leather, I love the texture of winter knits mixed with other fabrics. I love wearing tights with boots, furry vests and felt hats. Haha – I could go on and on! I also love snuggling in bed with a good book, peppermint tea and a Freddo Frog.

We loved your picture in our Kimono Floral Lace from our upcoming Spring collection. What did you style it with?

The kimono … I just adore it! A real closet keeper for years to come! I wanted the texture of the kimono to be the hero, so styled it really simply (with a head-to-toe tonal palette) with a cream cami and cream flares underneath, one-strap heels and chunky shell choker for a little accessory fun.

Tell us 3 random things about you.

  1. I grew up in a small country town two hours north of Adelaide.
  2. Cane toads are my biggest phobia.
  3. Pretty Little Liars is my favourite TV show.

The 5 most worn pieces in your wardrobe?

Jeans, white T-shirts, sneakers, denim jacket, statement earrings.

And lastly - just a short and sweet one - heels or flats?

Heeled bootie style shoes whenever I can as I’m a super shorty … However the reality of running around after a two-year-old requires sneakers to be the current go-to.
