what a year

PicMonkey Collage
What a year… To say I had an eventful 2015 is an understatement. It was a huge year! I became pregnant, got engaged (not that anyone knew), had a surprise wedding and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! Although Geelong Fashionista did get a little neglected there at the end, however I am looking forward to an exciting 2016 and this wonderful blog of mine to continue to grow!

As 2015 comes to an end I thought I would share with you my favourite 5 posts of 2016.

  1. last weekend – part one
    This post was all about my surprise wedding. What a day it was, I loved it so much and was everything I could have ever hoped for and more.

  2. Spring Racing Lookbooks – 1, 2 & 3
    (ok I have included three here but I couldn’t just have one!)
    It was so much fun to get my friends together and create a lookbook for the spring racing carnival. Giving inspiration and having a really good fun day creating some wonderful outfits. I hope they inspired you!
    Paige, Nic and Ami
  3. And then there were three
    My beautiful announcement to the world of the birth of my little girl, Frankie.
    Plus some fun photos of my belly right before she came into the world!

  4. Denim, black and white
    My favourite styling post of the year was this denim, black and white outfit. Such a fun look and trying something different. It was also a lot of fun to shoot!
    There were lots to choose from and I may need to recap. 😉
  5. Dressing for a wedding
    I really enjoyed been pregnant. I know I am very lucky about this as some people hate it. But I loved it and had a lot of fun working out a style and making life comfortable! Kookai was my savior for when I had special occasion and I loved this outfit here. Mim and Bas was my other never-fail with so many pieces that have lasted not only through my pregnancy but while breast feeding too! I think I’ll need a whole post on my pregnancy looks!

    I’d love to hear what your favourite post of 2015 was and why you love following along…Thanks for stopping by

5 weeks in


It’s been 5 weeks since an added addition came into my life. I am loving this new adventure but have learnt time does change and things don’t always go according to plan.

I had all these plans for blogging and getting Geelong Fashionista exactly where I wanted it to go but I think I am going to have to give myself some more time. It’s an adjusting process and still trying to get into the groove of life with a beautiful little girl.


I have been staying up to date on instagram and if you don’t already you can come follow along and see what I have been up to at @gfashionista.

I have been playing along with Fox in Flats for her annual #DAREcemeber, a style challenge which is a lot of fun. Each day trying a new style and I personally think is great to help me choose what to wear each day. Speaking of what to wear, now that i have a baby the problem has got worse as I have to now decide what not only I am wearing but what she will wear for the day. She has great clothes as she has been so spoilt and had beautiful hand-me-downs too which are so much fun to get her all dressed up in.

Below are some of the dares we have had this month so far, and it’s not to late to join in!

darecember week two

My thoughts and prayers have gone out to Sydney in the last 24 hours. Lets unite and remember the two people who lost their lives. # lovenothate #illridewithyou

I had this post ready to go and decided to post anyway but do make sure you tell the people close how much you love them and think of Sydney today!


DAREcember Week Two

Darecember week two

Fox in Flat style dares known this month as #DAREcember is now halfway. Here is my recap of  week two.

1. Day 8 was in the wild

For this dare I went with combining leopard print in my shoes and bag with a simple outfit. These shoes were the best bargain ever and I get comments all the time; they are from Kmart.
You can get similar here and here 

in the wild

2. Day 9 was all black

I generally like to wear a bit of colour in an outfit but there is something about all black that can look striking! You seem to agree with my Instagram photo getting lots of love!
Skirt from Bardot, jumper from Zara, blazer from Sportsgirl (similar here) and shoes from Wittner (currently on sale!!).

all black

3. Day 10 was pinned on

I found a brooch I brought in Tasmania quite a few years ago now. I added it to my bag as I didn’t want to put a mark in my Mister Zimi dress!
The bag is oldie from Sportsgirl (similar here) and the belt is an old one from Bardot (similar here)

4. Day 11 was his

While I didn’t wear anything of Andrew’s I was inspired to wear my big shirt but tied up at the front to give some detail.
Shirt is from Dotti (similar here), skirt witchery and boots from Wittner 


5. Day 12 was brightest

I always feel bright in pink! Love this Country Road top! Similar here and here 


6. Day 13 was killer heels

We had a wedding and it was a beautiful one at that, check out the pics at #jonandfibythesea!
I was always going to wear killer heels and helped I had somewhere to go!
These were actually a vintage pair my friend had in her wardrobe.

7. Day 14 was bare back 

After a really big weekend I put on a relaxing top to take a moment to sit down. I then realized it was the perfect top for the my dare. I added the necklace for some detail. Andrew did a great job capturing this photo.
