Well I’m very excited to announce that this week I had the privilege to collaborate with Urban Girl Clothing to bring you these two looks!

I love discovering new places to shop. It can be hard though when you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, but you know you want to be rocking the latest pieces and styles that are on trend. Urban Girl is a cozy boutique in Cowndilla packed out with a huge range of diverse pieces and new styles constantly. They have heaps to choose from but you have to be quick as their stock is in high demand. Whatever you see on the racks this week, will be gone the next – so you won’t be caught wearing the same outfit as everyone else! It also makes the pieces you choose that little bit more special!

One thing’s for sure – they know what’s on trend! Silky, spaghetti strap cami’s have definitely made their comeback this season. This Talulah top is the ultimate wardrobe staple that will take you from the office to the cocktail party. Team it simply with cigarette style pants and your go-to heels or take the next step and team it with a bold coloured mini skirt to turn heads! Friday night outfit = DONE!

If you asked me what my favourite colour to wear last season was I would have said grey. Ask me this season… KHAKI! (And yes it is a Summer colour now!) Gone are the days it was only suitable for camo costumes – it’s made a comeback and what a comeback it is! This tone is so versatile that you can wear it with almost anything – even tassles! The apron style skirt has to be a standout for me this season. It’s such a fresh design and will easily be a trend that will see you through from Summer to Winter. The apron skirt is a must have this season and you MUST get your hands on one!

Whether you’re looking for a weekend outfit, updating your wardrobe or are just simply in need of some good old retail therapy (with helpful customer service and styling tips!), Urban Girl Clothing has you covered.

Travel? No Trouble!

This week I had the pleasure of traveling to Sydney to visit family… and to shop!

What a gorgeous city it is! Although the weather was unpredictable at times, it didn’t take away from this gorgeous Australian city.

I am definately addicted to travel! Whether it’s overseas or interstate – I love packing my bags and flying away!

Although I love travel and, ofcourse, I love fashion, I always find it challenging to get creative with my outfits while I’m away. There are so many factors you have to think about when packing clothes – what the weather will be like, who you’ll see, where you’ll go, casual or dressy… the list goes on!

Out of all I have in my wardrobe (and that’s a lot!) I couldn’t go past my chambray shirt dress. It’s long sleeved so it’s great for cool weather (or roll them  up when the whether warms up), it’s soft and comfy for long trips, it’s cinched at the waist with a tie up belt for a softer silhouette and it’s the ultimate piece to dress up or down. Tone it done with tan accents, sandals and a large structured bag says cool casual. Or team it with pointed heels and a complimenting clutch for a day to night transformation. Did I mention they’re light and easy to pack?!

Not only is Sydney a gorgeous and famous city – it has A-M-A-Z-I-N-G shopping!!

Keep an eye out on future posts to see what I bought on my trip!

Is there anything better in the warm weather than a shirt dress?? It’s easy, comfy, cool and effortlessly stylish. And I mean effortless – throw it on, add sandals, say no more! There’s nothing worse than trying to style an outfit when it’s hot and you want comfort… but you also want style!

This dress by Imonni has a long, curved hem, side splits for movement and a tie-up belt to cinch in the waist. This dress is simply perfect for every figure. The cuffed sleeves slim the arms and shoulders and the buttons down the front elongate the figure – great for shorties like me!

I’m a big fan of neutrals so the black and white geometric combination was perfect for my wardrobe! Take a different angle on the shirt dress and wear it as a vest. Leave it un-buttoned but still tied up, teamed with jeans, a singlet, heels and a hat and you have a totally different look! (Or even layer it with a long sleeve underneath for the cooler months.)

Tip: Look out for curved hems on dresses to elongate your figure. Avoid even hems if you’re short as it can often cut you off and make you look shorter.
