So Frenchy So Chic

As most of you would know I recently moved house and nothing makes me feel more at home than a bunch of fresh flowers. This bunch of Australian natives caught my eye at my local florist as I love the colours and textures of the Banksia and Warratah flowers against the greens of the native leaves and grasses. Not only do Banksias and Waratahs look stunning they also last a really long time as as they dry out they retain their colour and shape. I actually had my last bunch for over six months so it's a good investment too, especially at only $10 a bunch in my new neighbourhood compared to the $18 of my old area.

I've been a big fan of Breton stripes forever, I mean who doesn't love this classic wardrobe staple? For a long time plus size women have been told that horizontal stripes are a big no-no which I believe is just not true! Wear whatever you want and feel confident and happy in. Personally I think horizontal stripes emphasise my curves in all the right places and as soon as I saw this Gorman dress I knew it would look amazing on me, and it does (well at least I think so). Paired back with simple black accessories this look is a more casual everyday look for me, just a simple day of running errands, picking up groceries at the local market and meeting a friend for brunch.

This classic look called for more simple and understated sunglasses than you're used to from me. I'm not always about the loud and crazy but everything I wear does have to have a certain 'design edge' to it. What I love about these Le Specs sunnies from Universal Store is their clear pinky bronze toned frame and gold arms which I felt perfectly matched my gold Poms bangle. I'm really loving all things gold right now so finding these sunglasses was a dream.

Going with the French chic vibes of this outfit I also picked up some Macarons from By Josephine, my new local French Patisserie. Their macarons won best macarons of Melbourne in 2010 and I can definitely see why, well taste why - so delicious! Yes I'm already loving living North side, so many new wonderful places to visit and try.

  1. You always look so great! I love how you can wear something so simple and chic like a striped dress and turn it into something so fun and edgy. The earrings and lip colour are a fantastic touch as well.

  2. I'm not used to seeing you in something so classic, rather than quirky! It works, though! Love it.

  3. Loving this look! I think stripes look gorgeous on us curvier girls.


  4. you are super cute! I love that you dressed the part to check out the new store! <3

  5. This dress is perfection. Great post lady.
