Pastel Purse Perfection

Sun Jellies are one of my favourite brands and I love taking my jelly bags seaside, to the markets and the shops. I have been loving their new purse and have already used to a good few times this past fortnight since first receiving it!

Another thing I love about Sun Jellies is the fact that is doesn't matter if they get wet or sand on and in them, they can easily be washed and dried quickly. I can fit a good few things in my jelly purse including my wallet, phone, sunglasses in their case, lipstick and a compact mirror. It's great to wear hanging on my shoulders or crossed over. 

Pastel pink and pastel blue are one of my favourite colour combinations so of course this bag had to make it's debut on the blog with a pastel blue swimsuit. I bought this swim dress a few weeks ago by one of my favourite swim brands (another summer favourite on the blog) and it is sooo good, I'm glad that I grabbed one before missing out as they are running low on stock. 

Sun Jellies never disappoints, if you like practical but cute bags that are a little bit different and are colourful be sure to check them out if you haven't already. They're always a cute, practical and reliable accessory that adds a nice pop of colour to my looks. This new design is also available in blue and yellow, check them out here!

That Autumn Feeling

Friday, 23 March 2018


The past few days have been rainy and a little bit cooler which makes it feel like Autumn is starting to settle in (or at least trying to). I took this beautiful dress for a spin earlier this week and I am absolutely in love with it!

Hat - Vintage
Shoes - I Love Billy

The weather has either been really hot, overcast or raining lately and that's usually what it's like this time of year. It's now technically Autumn but I was swimming earlier this week at the beach and it was hot! I hope to have a few more beach days as I have some more cute swimwear currently making it's way to me.

This dress is so so gorgeous and I like that it works well for this weird weather, it's perfect for Spring/Summer but the cotton is quite thick which means I can pair it with stockings and a cardi/coat and I've got a perfect look for the cooler weather.

I'm still quite new to Lindy Bop, this is my second piece from them (see my first outfit here). I'm really impressed with the quality of this dress, it is made of cotton and as I said before it is a nice thick cotton which is also soft to wear whilst holding it's shape - I very rarely wear petticoats and I love how full this skirt is.

The rich wine colour has certainly got me excited for Autumn and Winter styling, it's just such a gorgeous colour to wear. I fell in love with the stunning swan border print when I first saw it on the website and it did not disappoint once it arrived. I am wearing size 8 again and it is a really great fit, there is a bit of room in the waist which never really bothers me and  I pull in my waist with the matching belt anyway. I also really love the neckline and the low open back, it makes the dress even more elegant and yes the dress has pockets - I am always happy to report this!

I paired these amazing stockings with the dress and I am obsessed, it just really finishes off the whole look. I last wore these stockings on the blog with a wiggle dress but have been waiting for a bit of cooler weather to get them out again and style them with a swing dress.

I was very tempted to call this blog post "Stop looking at me swan" after one of my favourite movies Billy Maddison hahaha! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Here is part two from my trip to Melbourne to shoot with Erstwilder! I have been so excited to for this launch as I absolutely love the collection and the look for the shoot. Erstwilder and fellow Aussie brand Dangerfield collaborated to create a collection of beautiful brooches and an amazing clothing range to go with them!

This is such an awesome collab by two of my favourite Aussie brands, I love that both Erstwilder and Dangerfield are so quirky and fun, they have created such a fantastic collection together. My jaw hit the floor when I arrived to the studio in Melbourne back in January and saw the collection. 

I always like to mix up my style and try different looks, I was so on board for this look (and if you caught the last collection we did a 50's glam look for the last Erstwilder range, see here)! Maybe it's the drama student in me but I love to channel different characters but for this one I felt like myself too, I felt relaxed and was just having an really great day with the Erstwilder team. 

The characters, details and rich colour scheme of the brooches makes it a special collection, I feel like everything is cohesive and meshes together so well. Combine that with the clothing line by Dangerfield which features fun prints, beautiful textures and a range of items to suit everyone, I just want to match these brooches to all of the garments. I really want to get my hands on the fox denim jacket and the cute corduroy pinafore. They are such great pieces that will be perfect for Autumn and Winter.

You can catch my reveal video on the Erstwilder Facebook page and listen to me ramble with how much I love the Treasure Island collection - haha.

This range is available exclusively at Erstwilder and Dangerfield!

Thank you again for having me at the studio, it was a dream come true and soooo much fun!
