Seed Heritage Dress (similar style here), Birkenstocks Gizeh Birko – Flo White, Furla Metropolis Mini Bag (similar style here).

Cute summer romps throughout Brisbane’s best antique spots call for a bold, bright colour – coral to be exact! This fun little number is from Seed Heritage and features a relaxed, shift structure with a ruffled OTS (off the shoulder) neckline. I love the texture seen in the polkadot print of the fabric and the playful tassels adoring the sleeves.

I’m teaming this piece with my faithful Birkenstocks (remember my styling post here) for casual yet chic getup. Because the colour is so vibrant, I’m keeping my accessories tame with Furla bag and a pair of gold earrings.

What colour are you obsessing over this summer and how are you styling this? Let me know in the comments below!

Seed Heritage Bustier, Seed Heritage Denim Mini, Wittner Otto Heels, Furla Metropolis Mini Bag (similar style here), Swarovski Earrings (similar style here).

I’ve recently fallen in love with a bustier – can you blame me? It’s a flirty little number, featuring a playful, tiered structure and boned bodice for support. Complete with a sweetheart neckline, an off the shoulder fit and a delicious polkadot print – this piece was simply made for summer getaways. Because, who doesn’t love showing off the latest freckles on your shoulders, whilst galavanting with the gals, Aperol Spritz in hand!

I’m teaming this little Seed Heritage find with straight up denim…. mini skirt that is! The first to enter my wardrobe since the nineties, believe it or not! I’ve since come to find that denim skirts are the perfect, effortless addition to your wardrobe and this little piece will be on constant rotation this season.

Before I leave you to find a cool breeze and a nip of bubbly, I want to know how you are styling a summer bustier? Are you keeping it chic with a casual getup? Or dressing one up for a night on the town? Leave me a comment below cuties!

Birkenstock Gizeh Birko – Flor White, Trenery Fine Striped Shirt Dress, Lack Of Color The Spencer Wide Brimmed Boater.

Let me be the first to say, I never thought I’de be the girl strolling through the city in a pair of Birkenstocks. But despite their seemingly practical appearance, they are without a doubt the comfiest sandals I have ever worn. So here are my top tips to styling Birkenstocks.

1. Firstly, invest in a pair of neutral Birkenstocks that have stylistic versatility. I absolutely love white Birkenstocks as they are the freshest option for summer, and still remain quite feminine.

2. Style your Birkenstocks with something tailored yet relaxed for that chic summer #ootd. I’m pulling out a shirt dress in a muted print, with this particular frock from Trenery. I also love the look of straight, wide leg pants with a playful off the shoulder top, styled casually with a pair of Birks.

3. Accessories should convey summery vibes, like this classic Lack Of Colors Spencer Boater. Not a hat wearer? No problems! Why not opt for an oversized pair of tortoise shell shades or style with a statement tote.

4. There’s no hiding a bad pedicure, so make sure your tootsies are freshly shaped and painted. I’m all about soft, pastel colours like this Pretty Pink shade by OPI. Two coats needed and a top coat – don’t forget it!

I would love to hear any tips you girls might have for how you style your Birkenstocks – please leave a comment below!

Faithfull Retro Stripes Naumi Dress, Wittner Aralyn Heels, Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses, Pandora Dazzling Dainty Droplets Necklace, Pandora Floating Locket Necklace, Pandora Dazzling Droplets Hanging Earrings, Pandora Vintage Fascination Ring, Pandora Dazzling Droplet Ring.

Stripes? Check! Lightweight material? Check! Relaxed fits perfect for the weekend? Check! The off the shoulder dress is your key summer staple and I’m turning to Faithfull to deliver the goods.

What I love about this little number, is the retro vibe it speaks, further complimented by a neutral colour palette. It lends itself to many stylistic opportunities; espadrilles and straw boaters, loafers and aviators, but for me, I’m all about accessorising this piece with some block heels, layered jewellery and a delicious smoothie.

But the best part about this little frock? It’s now on sale! Enjoy cuties x
