What I Wore: Into The Wood

DRESS: AVA Designs “Patricia Dress’ {exact match}, WEDGES: Kmart Australia, SUNGLASSES: Mambo Australia, LIPSTICK: Kate Moss for RIMMEL London “Kiss Of Life” {exact match}

How do you spend the weekend? I like exploring. Whether it’s discovering a new favourite place to shop or heading out to explore the local markets. Give me new things!

My E discovered these suburban “woods” near home not long ago. We drive past them on a regular basis but we’ve never stopped to wander until now. Slightly eerie, I’m not sure if I’ll visit again any time soon but they sure made a pretty back drop for my gorgeous new dress! I’m kind of obsessed with this dress, so much so I wore it to one of my birthday celebrations! Brunch on the foreshore with my crew – a perfect morning!



Lady like and elegant, but with a quirky pop, this AVA Design is me to a tee! If you missed my first AVA post, the Perth label is designed for the real woman. The kind of girl who leads a busy life taking her from one location to the next without a break, so the dresses are versatile and can be worn anywhere, even in the woods! I love the bold statement print that covers various panels of the skirt and back. The geometric pop adds a bit of quirk to the simple full skirt, while the matching belt is perfect for sinching in your waist. It’s feminine and sweet, perfect for any kind of weekend play!

A pop of colour in the form of bright red lipstick and a pair of nude heels completed the look, and was the perfect choice for my recent birthday.



This weekend my adventures included a trip to Mexico in the form of a themed housewarming party, a trip to the “hairdressers” with a new do coming soon to the blog (but you can find it on my Instagram page if you’re keen for a squiz) and an adventure to the markets on Sunday morning with E to find the best fruit and veg out! Plus a spooky 90s killer flick, but that was one adventure we don’t need to revisit (Copycat, 1995, Sigouney Weaver). Shudder. 

Who knows what is instore for my next adventure, but I’m sure this dress will be along for the ride. And if you’re a fan it’s currently on sale! Doesn’t get any better than that. 

What are you currently loving in your wardrobe?

    That’s a beautiful dress. Currently nothing to call favourite in my wardrobe. Must do something about that !!

  2. That dress is gorgeous. You can tell from your happy relaxed face that you love wearing it! And I can see why – the style and print are perfect. I am currently loving a new long grey mohair cardigan in my wardrobe. Perfect for the past few days of awful Sydney weather!

    • Thanks so much lovely! I really do love it. Match made in blog heaven.

      The cardigan sounds divine, especially with the crazy weather in NSW ATM! Hope you’re all okay over there x

  3. I’m in love with drop pants at the moment. And. That. Dress! Swoon!

    Unfortunately, not in my size, but I’ve bookmarked and shall be stalking. Love the retro cute designs xx

    Thanks for hanging out with me for Wardrobe Wednesday xx

    • She’s due to release her new collection very soon so I’ll keep you posted when it drops. So good to keep it local! Retro cute is always a fave!

      Wish I was confident enough to try a drop pant. I’ll pop it on my to do list. I love Wardrobe Wednesday – thanks for having me x
