I think fashion shouldn’t be about strict rules. Forget that big girls shouldn’t wear white jeans! Forget that you shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes! If it makes you happy and you feel good in it, wear it! But I do have a few fashion tips to elevate your looks:

  1. I love to tuck tops – it adds definition to your waist and elevates the look
  2. Wearing a belt to cinch in your waist is a great way to add some shape to an outfit.
  3. I’m all about adding a pop of colour or sparkle to bring some personality to an outfit.
  4. I love to pair things with white instead of black – it will give the look a whole different vibe.

GREEN THUMB MUMS

Our green-thumb mums met on the playground, and bonded over kids but really connected over their love for plants. From there they connected at the gym, over wine and food and now are life-long friends.

VEGGIE START-UP MUM

Mandi Pethick

I drag her along to ALL the indoor plant sales around Melbourne…and she tells me I don't really need any more plants, and my husband gives her strict instructions not to let me buy any more indoor plants...and I say "it's all good Adele, we're just looking...you can guess how it ends!"

"I love that my body...and fashion... is forever changing and evolving."

Adele Poulos

Mandi is a great mate and has been for years! We met through our kids at school and have bonded over the trials and tribulations of motherhood, walking and house plants. Mandi is the biggest green thumb I know so she is my go to if one of my plant-babies looks unwell.

"Throw the rule book away - wear whatever you want, when you want!"
