Happy Hump Day everyone! I was so excited to shoot this look and couldn't wait to share it with you guys! 
 I’m definitely a minimalist when it comes to the jewellery game and prefer pieces that are simple and dainty so I can wear them more often. I'm always inclined to choose timeless pieces, that I can wear time and time again. Pandora has the perfect pieces that can easily transition from day into night, yet at the same time can complete any outfit. The 'Hearts of Pandora Collier necklace' is the definitely a stand out piece for me, its simple yet elegant and looks perfect with my v-neck playsuit, it adds the perfect finishing touch to my outfit. 
I've always loved Pandora's rings, mainly because they are so exquisite and I think its so special that you can choose a colour according to your birthstone. Luckily.. My birthday is in August so I got the prettiest birthstone of all! I couldn't help but gravitate towards the 'Black Spinel and Silver Bubble ring' I think its mainly because just literally suits every outfit and is so ideal for every day wear. I have fallen in love with these Pandora rings and I cannot wait to keep styling them with different outfits!! It's all about adding that special sparkle to your look. 
Anyway, we have some exciting collaborations coming up so keep checking in! Thanks for stopping by guys

May the Label

I think you guys all know my inherent obsession for playsuits, I just think there is nothing better then finding one you can dress up or down! I love this May the Label one with its low back, the colour is so perfect too and can be paired with anything from tan, black and beige I think thats why I think of Navy as one of my favourite colours. 
I pictured the little playsuit with tan heels and loose curls at first but I thought it would be fun to dress it down in a casual sort of way.  I was hesitant a bit hesitant to do all black but it wound up looking pretty cute. I ended up pairing it with my new gladiator sandals and this straw hat, perfect for summer! Ps what do you guys think of my new hat? It's something different for me but can't wait to take on all my beach adventures. Also,  Exciting news, I have a couple of road trips planned for an exciting collaboration coming up next week, can't wait to share with all of you! Thanks for stopping by guys xx

Earthy tones

Top: Zimmermann | Shorts: Bardot | Bracelet & rings: The peach box | Shoes: Tony Bianco 
This post is a little late to the blog, I have been so busy these last couple of weeks! This rust colour is one of my favourites for this season. I loved the idea of pairing this colour with my suede shorts, it gives that real earthy tone vibe! I am so happy I decided to buy this Zimmermann top, there was a bit of umming and arring, because I sometimes find it hard to wear tops that are sheer, but its already had a few wears and  I think its going to be a great investment for these warmer days! 
 I kept the whole look pretty neutral by pairing it with my all time favourite Tony Bianco "Keen" heels. They are the perfect go to heel, so easy to dress up or down! I accessorised with gold jewellery but kept it simple with fine rings bracelets from a little label "The Peach Box" if you haven't already, definitely check these guys out so many goodies!

Interview with Australian designer Benjamin Ringuet

A little over three weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Benjamin Ringuet's Spring/ Summer 15' showing.  I can't believe the quality and the colours of all his designs, he truly outdid himself! Pictured above I'm lucky enough to be wearing one of his new pieces, the amazing backless Hayden Playsuit. I love the high collar and structured body fit, with all its bright colours its perfect for Spring Racing season! I paired it with a stappy Tony Bianco Stilletto, because I didn't want to take away from the dreamy playsuit. I was lucky enough to sit down and have a chat with him about what inspired this collection and as well as his plans for the future:
I: What is your favourite part of being a fashion designer?
B: The opportunity to dress, style and meet customers inspired by my designs.


I: Your prints this season a very different to your last few collections, I love how bold they are! What were your inspirations for the designs you created for this show?


B: Thank you! Our floral print featured on the Romance styles was inspired by early Netherlandish paintings from the Flemish Renaissance period. The artwork featured upon the Ethereal Pencil Skirt and Signature Dress was created in an isolated reign of Wisconsin by experimentation with natural elements and light.  The Imagine artwork was designed while listening to Pink Floyd's album The Wall and Elloit Smiths From A Basement On A Hill.


I: On your website you say each dress has a story behind it, what’s the story of the Romance Pencil Skirt (This is my favourite piece of yours!)
B: It was designed for a person I have lost touch with. A reminder of special moments and memories shared. A fond farewell to a beautiful person.


I: What’s the stand out element of your most recent collection?
B: The complexity of the artwork. There was much trial and error involved in producing these new styles. Not just artistically but on a commercial level also.  


I:  Describe the women you dress – who would be your ideal style icon for Benjamin Ringuet?
B: A young fashion focused independent female.


I:  What’s your most memorable fashion moment to date?
B: Recently I designed a maxi dress and called it Sienna Silk after my god daughter and niece Sienna Grace. This particular style was released to the public at an event Siennas mother attended. She had no idea that I named a style after her daughter.  


I: What do you think is the most beautiful dress you have ever designed?
B: Our new season Imagine Wrap Dress. It took many months to not only design the artwork but craft the silhouette. It was created to be a visual illusion. If you study the artwork long enough you will understand the message I am trying to portray.


I:  You have some great stockists around Australia and internationally (America wow!), have you ever considered opening your own store?
B: We have been very lucky to gain strong stockists world wide. We currently have our own online store however I future goal would be to open our own boutique.


I: What are you plans for the future?
B: Continue to do what I love - Create designs that inspire the skeptical and enlighten the creative.

It was so inspiring to sit down and chat with Benjamin, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next, check out his new range here, and thanks for stopping by!

If you know me, you know my inherent obsession for staying bronzed. I've been asked a few times recently on how I manage to stay this colour! Spoiler alert, weekly spray tans!! 
Last week I met with the lovely Christina from the Tanning suite. All her tans re just $20, which is amazing considering she uses premium Australia Branded products 'Black Magic'. It's a 2-6 hour tan (But I left it on for 8 mwah ha) and its 100% organic. Christina Sprayed me with Argan tan which was a 15% DHA solution because I liked to be extra dark. The best thing about this tan is that it stayed on evenly for about 6 days, and I had no problems at all scrubbing it off, which makes the world of difference.
I have fallen in love with these Seed scallop hem shorts! They fit me so perfectly and the A line causal look makes them ideal for every day wear. I paired them with this little Khaki crochet crop I picked up from local label Sabo Skirt, its perfect for summer to chuck on over your bikini and can also be dressed up for friday night drinks! 
I have been so crazy busy this week, and had to squeeze in an hour for the Bachelorette last night of course, #TeamSash! But I have some amazing looks and exciting collaborations to come next week eeeep!!!So stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!

Travel diary - The Greek Islands

Wearing: Top: Spell Designs | Shoes: Camilla with Love | Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Love this photo of the girls just near where we stayed, such a great group of honeys to travel with!! 
Wearing: Playsuit: Zimmermann | Shoes: Converse | Sunglasses: Quay Australia 
 All the people gathering for the famous Santorini Sunset! You can only see the sunset from one side of the island. 

Kate We were very fortunate to have location right next to the old castle (Where everyone watches the amazing Santorini sunset). So each night we would hoist ourselves up and get a good cozy spot and watch the sun come down. Pictures definitely don't do it justice, it was a truly unforgettable experience! 
This was my favourite part of Santorini, all the little bell towers and the bougainvillea, I loved the contrast of the Pink with the white walls and blue little windows. 
Chelsea standing on our balcony in Santorini, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, they even came and collected us and took all our suitcases down! 

Exploring the beautiful little alleyways of Mykonos where you come across the most amazing little shops, cute colourful doors and windows everywhere you go. The weather was pretty much perfect and the shopping even better! 
 I kept to colourful playsuits, shorts, crops & crisp white connies in Mykonos. We stayed in a very central location with the most amazing pool and bar area, with easy access to lots of ocean view restaurants. Throughout Greece I kept to a lot of seafood and typical Greek cuisine (Lets face it who doesn't like dolmades, baked fish and halloumi) 
Wearing: Playsuit: Camilla with love | Sunglasses: Ray Ban 
Caesar salads & Turkey breast salad. 

 Ios Island was a lot of fun. Again, we stayed in a super central location which had an awesome pool and bar area, which was fitted with lots of hammocks - easy for lounging.  We were staying a little further out from the main town, so we rented Quad bikes to explore the island! I stuck to being passenger, I think that was best for everyone involved ha ha ha! We treated ourselves to the most delicious buffet Breakfast at the Ios Palace Hotel, picture below:
I can't wait to get back to Greece to continue exploring, the streets, food and the people are all unforgettable! 
Thanks for stopping guys and let me know if you have any questions!
