1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I live in Perth, Western Australia. Perth is a small city, and probably the most isolated capital city in the world! The term “only 6 degrees of separation” is so very true for Perth-ies. Both my husband and myself were born here, as well as all our three children.

Check out some of my favorite sporty-chic pieces and patterns to help translate the look into your wardrobe.
