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.

Unknown Ladies

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!

autumn layers

Today is all about autumn fashion as I say goodbye to my favourite season…

Looking at fashion inspiration will make me feel better about the changing seasons!

You can already feel the change in the air. Soon we will see the leaves falling from the trees.

Hopefully the sunshine stays longer and we still get to enjoy summer clothes, but when I look below I think perhaps it ain’t that bad!

It was all happening in Geelong over the weekend with so much on to see and do.

The Avalon Airshow started Friday and went right through the weekend. In Geelong West on Saturday was Pako Festa, celebrating all things multicultural. Sunday on the Bellarine was the Wallington Strawberry Fair.

I headed to the inaugural Sustainable Hook and Vine Festival Saturday. It was all about seafood and wine and the organic and sustainable practice of fishing. Music was played throughout the afternoon with wine samples on offer and food and drink to be purchased. Picnic blankets covered the grounds and everyone was enjoying the beautiful sunshine on the last day of summer!

I tried the salt and pepper calamari from Uber Mama and it was delicious! Served with an asian slaw it was a perfect lunch. Andrew tried the pork belly also from Uber Mama and he too thought it was delicious! I think we will be heading to Angelsea to try some more!

Melko

Don’t you love it when you find something you love, and when you wear it everyone feels that love for it as well?

That is how I feel about this dress. I put it on Friday morning and headed to work and all day I had people stop me to ask where I got my dress from. They were loving the pattern, the cut and the way it looked so comfortable!

As a fashion blogger I like to show readers beautiful clothes as well as new brands to go have a look at. This dress is no exception. What attracted me to this garment was the pattern and I love how perfect it is for the office. Easily adapted with boots, or flats as well as the heels as I’m wearing.

Melko is an Australian company that sources clothing from South America. (Only working with companies and brands which employ safe and fair workplace conditions!)

Their collections have a south american flair, fun and of an extremely high quality, perfect for Melbourne!! It really is a great brand with incredible pieces and this dress is so perfect as we now hit autumn weather!

I love Melko
