hook and vine


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!

Flying Brick


Over the weekend we headed to Flying Brick Cider House for our friends birthday. I love how close it is to our house and how it showcases the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula.

Flying Brick opened recently, in November last year, and it is housed in such a beautiful building and set up. The design is so well delivered and it is a great place to be in with a wonderful vibe. With all the open windows and beautiful grass lawn it is a great way to enjoy a Saturday Afternoon.

We in fact headed to Flying Brick back in December last year for Andrew’s Christmas Party and the meals were delicious. If you do head down this way I highly recommend going to have a cider!

We are finally seeing the summer weather that I love and I thought I would take full advantage and wear a fun dress and of course my favourite sandals. We were sitting outside so I wanted to be sun smart with my hat (yes that I always wear!!) and really liked the black and white vibe I went with.

stripes and sunshine


I have a current obsession for stripes. I seem to be drawn to them and pulling them off the rack every shop I enter.

This dress is no exception with stripes. I was looking for a dress that could work for both casual and to dress it up a little. Maybe even try to wear it as corporate attire. (That look I’ll have to try another day!) Over the weekend I added my old faithful hat along with my new favourite heels and some simple jewels for a day to beach look. I think it works, and was easily adapted to head to the beach, once I swapped heels for thongs! It then easily worked again to go to a friend’s house for a bbq by swapping the hat for a denim jacket for when it cooled down.

I headed up to the Ocean Grove lookout before we headed to the beach and what a view it was! I think it was rad place for photos and I love what Andrew has captured here. It was windy, possibly due to how high we were but once down on the beach it was beautiful day. It was actually hard to cut down the photos to put into the post. Normally I am so critical of what I use but I loved what was captured here.

There is something to be said about simplicity and I think that is the style I am moving more and more to. Not trying to over think an outfit but just go with simple cuts, lines and style.

Summer Grey

I think it is important to always be true with what I am wearing and the point of difference between my blog and others is that I truly wear what I have on. I have become more daring and willing to take risks with my fashion but at the end of the day it is me.

Over the weekend I thought I would try this all grey look; summer grey if you will. I do see grey as a winter colour but I think it does work for summer too. With the right touches and details.

This whole outfit is the essence of comfort. The skirt feels like pj’s and the top is so relaxing, it was the perfect day off, helping Andrew outfit. It’s so nice to have four days off. I would ideally love to have three but four was perfect as I get back in the swing of work. Sometimes I think I should go to four days a week and give more love to Geelong Fashionista but I don’t think my job would allow it.

What is your ideal work/day off balance?
