Erstwilder's latest release includes a large collection of essential earrings of many different shapes and colours! I have featured six of my favourites in this photo heavy blog post.

(This Joanie dress is coming to the blog soon)

I love all of the different shapes and colours in this range and earrings are one of my favourite go-to accessories. Especially when they are on the smaller side like this, when I'm at work or just need a little bit of extra colour with my outfits they always do the trick.

I like that this range is easy to wear, simplistic but still so super cute, head to the Erstwilder website to shop the range!

Hunter Valley

Long time no blog post! I just got back from a trip to Hunter Valley with Max. Here's a few quick shots we took on our last morning. We literally took these in about three minutes because it was freezing!

Me-made Overalls - 1930s Sweetheart Overalls sewing pattern by Decades of Style
Tshirt - Mischief Made
Hat - Rivers

With a few minutes without my coat on I had to get a few quick snaps with this beautiful scenary, I think the overalls go so well with the colours of the country. 

Max and I have never been to the Hunter Valley even though it is a short drive. The Hunter Valley is well known for it's vineyards and cellar doors, however I don't even drink and Max rarely. So what brought us here you ask? Well I have always loved being in the country and farms, though I booked a Meerkat Experience at Hunter Valley Zoo for Max's birthday. 

We spent a whole 20 minutes inside the Meerkat enclosure with Meerkats jumping all over us, eating food from a bowl in our hands and on our head. It was one of the greatest things we have experienced and loved every minute, you can see some photos of us with the Meerkats on my insta post

We enjoyed some cheese tasting, bought some cheese to take back to our cabin and indulged in chocolate too all from local companies. We ended our trip with a beautiful horse trail ride and saw lots of Kangaroos by the way, one with a joey too when we spotted it's little feet poking out of mama roo's pouch. 

I love a good getaway every now and again but am happy to be home and in my own bed.

Oh and I ordered my wedding dress this week!

Another new season piece from Hell Bunny's latest range, I am loving this tropical print jumpsuit!

Outfit Details

Florida Jumpsuit - c/o Hell Bunny (also available in pineapple print)
Hat - Thrifted
Sunglasses - Pared Eyewear

A Tuesday for me is usually spent at the beach, this includes a dog walk and then brunch which is good start to the day. It is really starting to feel like Autumn now, though despite the windy weather lately the warm sun feels so good when walking outdoors.

This Hell Bunny jumpsuit is so cute and extremly comfortable! Perfect for hot summer days and easy to throw on and look put together when you don't feel that way due to the heat or just when you've had a busy week in general. The is no zip, just an elastic waist and a button at the back of the neck, special mention of the deep pockets, always essential. I love the pink tropical flowers and flamingos and it's even better against the black background which makes the print pop!

My style has changed a bit over the past year, I still love vintage, all of my dresses and always will. But I have been wearing a lot of boho style clothing, trying different things and still mixing in my vintage pieces. Though my lifestyle has changed a bit these days too so that can have an affect. I love that this jumpsuit and quite a few pieces from Hell Bunny's new range can be have a bit more of a relaxed feel to it, style it more retro if you like or a bit more casual too and you'll look fabulous no matter what!

I haven't been setting my hair very often in vintage styles lately too as I am embracing my natural curls, now that my hair has grown out back to it's natural blonde state and I've switched to organic products it now curls the way I want it to naturally. Though I do enjoy setting it into vintage styles maybe a couple of times a fornight (like I have here for this photoset), it's nice to have my hair natural and in a styled state.

Style is always evolving and since I was a little girl I have always loved to experiment with it.

Outfit Details

Tropicana Dress - c/o Hell Bunny
Belt - Princess Highway
Brooch - c/o Erstwilder
Hat - Thrifted
Shoes - Wittner

You have probably noticed my lack of blogging lately, life has been busy and although I have missed it the break has been nice. It is now Autumn here in Australia though it is only early, we are starting to feel the chill here in NSW but the sun is still really warm, I went for a swim or two about a week ago!

What better way to blog again than with one of my all time favourite brands, I selected a few really beautiful and easy to wear pieces that suit my lifestyle at the moment, though I always make time to go to the beach, it always relaxes me.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it on my blog but Max and I got engaged earlier this year, he gave me the most beautiful antique Victorian ring and asked me on these rocks by the beach.

As for this gorgeous dress, I wearing my usual size xs, it is a little loose on my waist which I have pulled in with a belt, it has pockets, a pom pom trim on top, adjustable straps with bows on top and a gorgeous pineapple-tropical print. It is nice and light to wear which is essential for really hot weather, it also looks super cute with a cardigan.
