Today’s fashion spree is inspired by Miranda Lambert. As a country girl I love to mix my look with classy boho fashion styles. Hats, boots and jeans look great with the right mix of accessories, and of course it’s the attitude that pulls it off! I also love internet shopping because I can visit all over the world without leaving my bedroom. The images come from Gypsy Store in Round Top, Texas. I just gotta go there one day!
Have a great week in fashion.
The road is wet and slippery from the fog as I descend from the highlands toward Wollongong. The sun is starting to come and makes the road shiny on this Saturday morning.
Wollongong spreads over a coastal lowland from Albion Park in the south to the sea cliffs near Royal National Park. The green landscape gives way to urban areas that spill into the shallow valleys that run down the sea. Wollongong is Australia’s seventh largest city, with its development based around coal mines, steel works and shipping port.
Originally this region was covered by rainforest from the coastal plain to the escarpment. A search for new pastures brought the early European settlers and led to the establishment of the south coast dairy industry. But it was the discovery of coal seams that attracted the most interest and meant that Wollongong – based on an Aboriginal word for ‘sound of the sea’ – grew into something more than just a small fishing port.
Much of the growth in population in the region happened from the 1950s to 1970s to create a string of suburbs that housed workers for the steel mill as well as Sydney commuters. It is this blend of working class, agricultural and urban landscape, I think, that gives Wollongong its unique atmosphere.
I find my way through the traffic to the University of Wollongong. My destination for today is to attend a writing workshop and I am impressed with the clean, modern look of the uni. I think I could spend the rest of my life just studying at different universities! The workshop today is on ‘Reflective Writing’ and as I park the car I’m looking forward to learning some new skills.
I have half an hour up my sleeve so time for a quick coffee and write a blogpost then off to find the lecture theatre!
For a shopping spree this week I choose Picnic Clothing, a fresh and modern fashion store in Perth, Western Australia. Their styles are relaxed and contemporary and perfect for an autumn picnic.
Enjoy your week in fashion
I stumbled across this amazing little shop in Manchester called Hurricane that was simply a sensual delight. Today’s image is from some of their items that really grabbed my fancy.
Jenna Coleman is one of my favourite actresses and definitely a fashion crush. Her style is always so effortless, classy and gorgeous. Here are some lessons on getting the Jenna Coleman look:
wear dresses that are tailored for your shape
don’t just buy modern clothing, be prepared to shop vintage
must have accessories and interesting jewellery
Today’s dream shopping spree is from & Other Stories – casually chic linen blend dress; triangle scarf in off-white check; cashmere beanie in pink; round sunglasses; leather gloves; polka dot Iphone case; owl keyring; ring, bangle and crescent moon necklace.
Have a fab week in fashion.
I wanted some new leggings for the new season and I couldn’t go past the pretty print on these Equinox high waist crop yoga leggings from Dharma Bums. Coupled with a simple white Bamboo twisted back tee and Cloud keyhole crop bra and my little shopping spree was complete. Now I feel more inspired than ever to get to my workouts!
