its getting cold outside

Kirsty

It’s started to get cold outside! Summer has left us and winter is coming quickly.

Time to layer, with the sun still trying to shine in the afternoons.

I’m still on my no tights until May with just over a week to go! But it is a struggle as the cold weather sets in.

I do love some of the amazing winter pieces around but I do hope it’s not a really cold winter…  7 months until summer!

I love navy and grey and I think I will be in these colours a lot of he next few months! Still bringing white and pink in for some pops.

Although winter is on the horizon and I think summer has left us for a few months I still like keeping up with swimwear and seeing what is about as I do love a summer holiday in the middle of winter!

I have not worn a once piece cozi in a long time and have wanted to try one for a while! That is when I came across this navy, ruffle one piece from Lime Ricki and I thought I would give it a go.

Now I have to admit, this post was tough for me and I did struggle with picking photos, not because I have doubt in my appearance but there is something about bather shots that I am not such a fan of! However I do think it shows off how practical and perfect for hanging on the beach this one suit it. I often go to the beach with my friends kids and I find my bikini just doesn’t do the trick.

Some great news to you all is that Lime Ricki are going to offer Geelong Fashionista readers 15% their purchases by adding the discount code: GEELONG. A great way to get ready for those beach holidays!

denim, black and white

Geelong Fashionista

I’ve just had an impromptu social media vacation. It wasn’t intended nor was it because I was over it, it just sort of happened and it felt good.

I’m back now though! I cant wait to get stuck back into everything with lots of fun and exciting posts coming your way. It was nice to step away and relax and realise that life does go on without checking Instagram fifty times a day!

Back to fashion…

I love trying to adapt the clothes I have in my wardrobe. This way I get lots of wear out of  my clothes and change their style. This black top is one of those pieces I wanted to get more wear out of. Being a crop it’s not so easy to wear as the weather starts cooling down and not quite practical enough for work either. A simple white tee with some ripped jeans were the best pairing to try out the look I had in mind.

It was so fun to put this together and I’m really happy with the look, a casual yet fun style with heels to dress it up a little more ready for a dinner out.

Plus the industrial background made for some great images and was a fun shoot.

maxi and me

Tee and Me

Maxi dresses and I have not always been friends. It comes from the fact I am short and they seem to always be too long. Therefore they are rarely seen in my wardrobe!

However every blue moon one pops up that does want to be my friend and actually works on my small statue. This is so with this beautiful peach lace maxi dress. With an asymmetric hem line, coming up at the front, and adjustable straps the length is perfect on me. Although I have heels on for these images, it does also fit well with cute flat sandals as well. Don’t you just love those finds!

I came across Tee and Me on facebook and loved their story. A mum and daughter started out selling printed maxi and sundresses on the Sydney market circuit and have built their brand from there, and they have an eye for beautiful pieces. This dress been the perfect example!

Now my clutch i get here is going to have it’s very own post I think as it is incredible in itself. My brother introduced me to Design A Space and I was amazed at incredible pieces they stock from up and coming designers. This cork clutch the perfect example of amazing talent. But like I said, I think it needs its own story!

stomping to the beat

Pink tank

The weather has been pretty good the last few weekends. I’ve been heading out for beautiful beach walks admiring how lucky I am to live where I do and stomping to the beat of the waves.

In doing this it helps if you happy with what your walking in! I’m all for looking good while exercising!  I have had a real thing for pink at the moment! In fact since I was a little girl it has rarely gone away. (There was that quick phase in year 7 when I tried to only wear dark colours! It lasted 6 weeks; not long at all!) There is something about the colour and the way it makes me feel! I would have thought the opposite would be true as I hear the only colour I wore for the first two years of my life was pink, so I wouldn’t get mistaken for a little boy!

When walking along the beach it is so nice to see so many people out and about enjoying the great outdoors as well as the beautiful weather. There is something about living by the coast and been active. I find it almost a must, if you live by the coast you must love walking and viewing the ocean!

I’d be keen to know if you agree? Do you live by the coast?

blogger life

Blogger brunch

This week has been jammed packed and for once it’s been all about Geelong Fashionista which is really exciting. On Tuesday last week I went to a Problogger conference day which was great and I learnt a lot. Especially some great skills in using my camera!

On Friday evening I headed to the advanced screening of Dior and I at Moonlight Cinema’s at the Royal Botanic Gardens. A wonderful eye-opening look into the world of couture; looking at a huge fashion house with Christian Dior still looking over the stunning designs.

Saturday morning saw Natalie from Interlaced Media, organise a brunch with a group of 25 bloggers It was wonderful to network and talk to similar minded people. We talked and of course the cameras were out snapping the details of the morning finishing with a massive photo session with cars stopping and people looking as we tried to get the best shots.

Of course the fashion was wonderful with everyone bringing their style to brunch and making some really fun statements. I was sure to snap away and show their everyday style. It was wonderful to meet so many people I have been following and admiring on their journey’s. It’s so reassuring to know everyone is so down to earth! It was also nice to meet people I’d never meet before and discover their blogs!

terindah estate

Geelong

A few weekends ago now we headed to Terindah Estate, a beautiful winery on the Bellarine Peninsula.

We went for breakfast on an amazing morning with the sun shining and great company. I had the breakfast trifle which was delicious and the best part was it did not include sultanas!! I really can’t stand those things, and usually don’t get to enjoy a yummy muesli or granola as they seem to always include the little brown things! This one had yoghurt and berries and just made the morning even better.

Andrew and I went exploring the grounds and snapped a few photos as we looked around. It’s incredible looking over the ocean and seeing the vineyards. We both commented it would be an incredible wedding destination as view is amazing plus the buildings have the perfect vibe.

I went with comfort on this particular day due to the heat. I felt summer colours would be fun (plus I had forgotten I had this top!!). I have lived in my Senso sandals this summer, as they really are so comfortable plus look awesome! I look back at photos and they seem to be in so many of them but I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Have you been to Terindah Estate? What did you think?

opening night at vamff

Geelong Fashionista

On Saturday evening I headed off to the opening event of VAMFF fashion week; the David Jones Runway.

I love fashion week most of all for the street fashion and although I didn’t get a lot of photos there were some amazing outfits on the night.

I also got to meet a lot of people and that is always so much fun and making connections in the industry.

My two girlfriends Nicole and Ami came along with me and we all seem to have gone with white in our outfits.
Nic went for one jeans and a denim shirt, while Ami went with a swing dress and paired it with black to give a really great look!

NicAmi

I love the monochrome look from the editor of Alphabet Pony Magazine. I loved how she changed up the suit with a long top and the metallic clutch.

I also ran into Twice Blessed and I loved how the girls complemented each others look. It’s made me really want a sleeveless vest as they really look so great!

While I didn’t catch these ladies names I liked the way they had fun with their outfits and looked so different from everyone else.

Then there is me… I went with monochrome and popped it out with pink… It took me a long time to work out what to wear but I felt comfortable and still unique to my style. I even had people stop to take photos this year, (mainly of the stunning clutch), but all the same I had fun getting images and felt like me!KirstyDetailsPurple Chair

vamff is coming

Sheetal-Mudumba

I am very excited…. VAMFF ~ Melbourne Fashion Week has it’s opening night on Saturday night and I’ll be heading along to the opening runway.

Oh course I still have no idea what I wearing but hoping it will all come together in the next couple of days.

As much as I love the runaway and seeing the latest trends one of my most favourite things is seeing the street style and what all the fashion addicts are wearing. I could spend hours watching the people arrive down on the docklands in their style and setting trends for months to come.

To get inspired for the week ahead I thought I would look back on last year’s street style and showcase some of my favourites, and what I wore too.

I got to meet Cecylia last year and it was so nice to meet someone who was so down to earth and happy to get a photo with me! I loved how she looked so effortlessly good!

I love staying fit and healthy and I try to live an active life. As a result I like to have good active wear to ensure I can be comfortable while exercising, whether that be doing Pilates or yoga, boxing, or going for walks; especially along the beach as I am lucky enough to live so close.

We all know how much I love local and believe in supporting local businesses; I was so excited to discover a range of incredible active wear created here in Geelong, Stomp Apparel.

Stomp was created by a family motivated by a healthy lifestyle wanting affordable, fun and comfortable active wear; to not only sell to others but they too wanted to wear.

I was lucky enough to try out some of their products and I couldn’t be happier. It suits exactly what I am after as well as been comfortable, bright (as I like to stand out when I’m working out!) and really practically made with purpose in mind, (for example the leggings have a pocket at the back to place your key!)

I cant wait to show you more of the active wear in coming weeks!
