That Postcard Summer

thumb_IMG_0963_1024

This year, I was lucky enough to escape the Australian Winter and venture off to Europe for six weeks. This trip was all about exploring – learning – freedom – eating – drinking & spending time with the people I love. These are a few of my favourite happy snaps from the trip which I hope to share and spread that European love.

ALICANTE – SPAIN

Power Play

thumb_DSC07354_1024

I’ve always been intrigued and inspired by power dressing, I mean it’s amazing what a good pair of tailored pants or a fitted suit jacket can do to enhance or change a certain style or look. Power dressing is in reality dressing more like men but how do you stay true to your own style? Stay true to being a women? The answer – make it your own! Mix and match different styles and trends with the power dressing essentials including tailored pants, suit jacket, business shirt etc.

However, think of women like Anna Wintour! She is an absolute goddess  within the  power dressing world because she makes it her own! Many of you I am sure are familiar with her  signature look – a pretty, feminine floral dress with the slick bob and of course those infamous black sunnies! Does she need to dress like a man to feel and be successful? I think not! Its really all about what you put on to make you feel powerful as well as feeling comfortable within your own skin – for me this is my true powerhouse outfit.

I decided I wanted to twist power dressing into something strong, feminine,  sophisticated and classic while adding a regal, military touch.

Summer Classic

thumb_DSC07676_1024

Summer is here and I am so ready! I must admit that summer is definitely my favourite season. Summer to me mean beach, sunnies, hats, shorts, cotton dresses and overall comfortable fashions. I can get up throw on a beach dress and a pair of sunnies and be ready to go in 10 minutes (well almost).

This outfit is a classic, cool,  chic, comfortable summer look that is so easy to find in the stores. Ruffled tops are everywhere at the moment as a result of it being recently used within many  designers collections (Dion Lee, Balmain, Gucci, Ellery, Christopher Kane).

Hope this gives a bit of Summer outfit inspo!

Bali Bliss

Ok so Bali was amazing. The trip = humidity, colours, lovely people, tourists, swimming, flowers, yummy food, beaches, seafood, snorkelling, rainbow fish, shopping, bike rides, new flavours, monkeys, squirrels, birds, fish, hinduism, yoga, massage, fish spas, tanned skin, crazy roads and an overall incredible experience!

A photo can say a thousand words so I think I will leave it up to them to explain the rest of the trip, enjoy!

City Lights

IMG_1711

I have never seen Sydney so busy! It was so nice to see everyone out and about with their family and friends enjoying the beautiful lights from the Vivid festival. I had such a fantastic night with my two favourite Jemima’s who never fail to make me laugh. Somehow the catch up turned into an impromptu photo-shoot so I hope you all enjoy the photos!

Paradise

_MG_4538Absolute paradise. It is paradise up in northern NSW. The beautiful coast and its crystal clear waters setting the perfect day to take some gorgeous beach shots. I was constantly surrounded by natures beauty that took me by surprise at every turn. The seashore offered everything from star fish in the rock pools to the breathtaking rock faces above the sand.

Now is  the perfect time to bring out the summer bikinis that haven’t been worn for a year or even buying a new one! The bikini that I am wearing in the photos is a new addition to my wardrobe and I absolutely adore it! The smart, monochrome feel of the outfit perfectly contrasts with the casual, beach theme. Sometimes its the simple outfits that can make you feel amazing and look the best.

I wear a Glassons bikini, Primark trousers
