Casual and Comfy

'Breton shift stripe dress': c/o Izabel London (here)
'Apple martini anorak' jacket: c/o Stelly (here)

'Point quartz' Necklace: c/o Day and Night (here)

I've just landed back in Sydney from my snowy trip to Queenstown (New Zealand)! I saw snow for the first time and even did a spot of skiing- which I loved! I got up to Level 3 on my first day hehe but I didn't get a chance to go back to the slopes afterwards. Queenstown is such a beautiful place and the air is so ridiculously fresh and crisp. I'm definitely more inclined towards wintry climates and I would love to go to Canada or somewhere else with snow when it's summer over in Australia.

Trekking through snow and walking everywhere has given me a newfound appreciation for comfy clothes- I would've loved to take this outfit to Queenstown if it were a bit warmer :)! Izabel London sent over this striped shift dress my way and I wore it the day after I arrived back in Sydney. The great thing about shift dresses is they allow you to breathe a little without worrying about your belly like with bodycon dresses (and I definitely indulged a lot on my holiday!). Personally I think shift dresses need to be paired with bare legs or tight leggings so you don't end up looking completely shapeless.

I'm also loving this little gemstone beauty I'm wearing around my neck from Day and Night. There are so many colours to choose from, I kind of want all of them! I chose #2 'sandstone', which is navy with some glitter. Stay tuned for more posts featuring more gorgeous jewellery from Day and Night!

  2. that snow trip must have been a blast! To tell you the truth, I never went skiing...I'm more a seaside kind of gal.

    you look fantastic in that striped dress,...I really do like your sense of style.

  11. Your shift dress is so cute. I love shift dresses for the same reason as you - I don't have to worry about my belly. You have a great figure so I don't think you have anything to worry about.

  14. Ahh, I love this look! And ahh, you got to see snow for the first time, yay! I have never seen snow before, so I'm looking forward to the day that I do.

    I think shift dresses are gorgeous, and I completely agree with wearing leggings or just going bare (which I wouldn't ever do because #selfconscious) for a little more definition. You wore the dress perfectly, and your shoes are too cute!
