Pinch and a punch. It’s not only the first of the month, it’s the first day of my favourite season and the launch of the spring 2015 Styling You Shop. The shop concept is still new to Styling You. This is the second time we’ve opened up the pop-up online shop and I’m excited that you’re

How’s the last day of winter looking where you live? The pre-spring sun is doing its thing here. I had planned to do my spring wardrobe edit in preparation for the new season but my office was in greater need of a de-clutter and overhaul. So soothing. The wardrobe can wait until next weekend. I’m already

How to get your spring wardrobe sorted

FEATURED Spring Summer 2015 - casual outfit

Spring-summer is a very long fashion season in most of Australia. This means that for most of us, most of our wardrobe is devoted to clothes that are geared towards our daily life in those warmer months. It also means that it’s more of a challenge to keep things fresh throughout the season … because

We spent the weekend 1000m above sea level in the Gold Coast hinterland. More to come on that later in the week but I have to say I did enjoy the cooler temperatures. It was like our last blast of winter. We cranked the fireplace up and enjoyed the non-humid air. Driving home down the

How to dress for a conference


Last weekend I attended the 2015 Problogger Training Event – just a *wee* gathering of about 700 bloggers or people wanting to connect with bloggers. The conference is the brainchild of Problogger’s Darren Rowse. It started with humble beginnings as a one-day event in 2010 and has grown to be Australia’s only annual blogging conference.

My wardrobe consists of two extremes. The winter extreme and the summer extreme. In between you’ll find the majority of my clothes, all clothes that fit into the trans-seasonal category. These are clothes that consist of light layers – layers that can easily be added or taken off as the day warms up or cools down.

Spring Summer 2015 fashion trends

FEATURED spring summer 2015 fashion trends - bohemian

It’s a warm day here in Queensland. I’m not fooled though. We’ve still got two weeks left of winter and some cool nights ahead later this week. But. Come that last week in August, the seasonal weather switch really does get flicked. Spring does arrive here very quickly, so it pays to be prepared. First

The Model and Me: Belle Bird


I first introduced you to Birdsnest’s Belle Bird label last season. Belle Bird is Birdsnest’s own plus-size label and this spring-summer it’s once again produced a fabulous edit of wearable and affordable pieces for size 12-22. Now, before you get all huffy and puffy about size 12 not being plus-size. It IS plus-size in terms

FEATURED How to wear a chambray shirt

It’s been said that you shouldn’t adopt a fashion trend if you’re old enough to have worn it the first time it was a thing. I’ve long poo-pooed this outdated notion. And it’s a good job I have too. Why should all the sweet young things have all the fun? Fashion is fun and it

Oh HELLO Monday. I see you. I embrace you. And I bring you another instalment in the Model and Me series. Australia was dishing up some pretty diverse/crazy weather across the weekend. Around here we were teased with a hint of what’s to come in about five weeks … spring. Tops in the mid 20s.

How to stay excited about your winter wardrobe

FEATURED Winter wardrobe boredom busters

I thought I was being super clever escaping the Australian winter for three weeks. In my head, I’d waltz on back from the south of Italy, all glowing and ready to embrace the new fashion season ahead. WRONG. No, as a major reality check, Queensland – and the entire Eastern seaboard of Australia – was
