This is technically cheating- I am not really sharing anything new, and usually don't post any media or press stuff I get come through about the blog, but, as I mentioned earlier, since I am in the middle of moving house, I thought I would share this... 

The Chic Street Journal kindly featured me last month as their 'Style Icon' so I have pinched a couple of the pretty rad boards they put together. The images they chose are from my 'new season' posts to share a little wardrobe refresh for the Autumn to Winter months. In these I had added in a check shirt, and funnel neck top to keep things as on trend as I am ever likely to go without over doing it (sorry- this isn't the blog where the chick wears flatform shoes). The Chic Street Journal is a great site featuring the best of classic and new fashion from around the globe. Hit them up for all sorts of inspiration.

Witchery Pullover, Chanel Brooch, Alice Mccall Shorts, Tristan Blair Boots, Amber Sceats Bangles and ring.

Another of my favourite places in Adelaide is the Botanical gardens and specifically the glasshouse and Cactus Garden. On this morning we were blessed with a very prominent sun, very welcome in Autumn. I am wearing clothes here that I had left behind in boxes, after I had gone through them and compiled a mass (aka five or six big boxes) of clothes to give away. Not having time to get in touch with anyone my size in Adelaide I left this pile for my Mum to distribute (thanks Mum!) - donate to the Op shop or to anyone she thinks might want them. My tastes had changed so much, that the bright, colourful and heavily patterned things didn't seem very 'me' anymore. So, someone out there is going to end up with brand new clothes from all sorts of designers (unworn D&G, Alice Mccall, Zimmermann etc). It feels good to let these go.

This week we got approved for a new place, so I will finally have a home of my own! No moving every three months! Yay! So now to find homewares, pack and move. Excuse me if I am absent for a few days. I have some cool projects coming up to share soon, so stick around.

The lovely guys at Modnique contacted me this week with a heads up that they will be having a big Wildfox sale for five days starting today. I am a big fan of Wildfox (you know if you have followed me for a while as I often repost their amazing lookbooks) so this one is super exciting. 
With prices from $31 you know there are going to be some great deals. Modnique are an international online fashion retailer who have been shipping to Australia since 2011. 

To sweeten the deal even further, Modnique are giving you guys an exclusive promotion of $10 off everything in the Wildfox sale. This sale code is exclusive to Australia (sorry guys overseas), just enter SHUTMYEYES10 as your coupon code when you shop the sale HERE.

Wildfox is a vintage inspired label out of LA made up by two friends with a love of vintage t-shirts, rock and roll and quality fabrics. They also have the most killer lookbooks every time, often inspired by fun films like Clueless, The Blue Lagoon, The Great Gatsby and more. The images added here are some of my faves from their lookbooks from over the years. In the sale expect super cute swim wear, t-shirts, and fun jumpers, perfect to layer up heading into our cooler months.

Yeah, I took too many photos. :) 
We were only away for a little under a week, but I get snap happy wherever I go. I have come across a lot of people who have never given Adelaide much thought, and find themselves surprised to learn that although it is small, can actually be both really pretty and cool. I definitely experienced appreciating this little town once I moved away from it. There is plenty to see and do, particularly if you like gardens, wine, antique shopping, beaches, and German food. So with little more to say, I hope you enjoy this photo heavy post.

For the record, photos were taken in the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens (arguably best in Autumn), Hahndorf, Mclaren Vale, Strathalbyn, Adelaide and the Botanical Gardens, also pictured is Mario and my brother James. 
Honestly I wish I had somewhere less familiar and more exciting to share pictures of, but it has been a long time since I really traveled. :( Soon. I hope.
