Soul food and sun at Shoal Bay Country Club

Situated in the heart of Port Stephen’s as well as having just undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment, Shoal Bay Country Club is a prime hot spot when holidaying. The fit-out is a pastel, beachy dream, with bright coloured cushions, chairs and wall art. Dining and entertainment options are also incredible, creating the perfect buzzing atmosphere for a day or night out with friends and family.

If you follow me on my Instagram you would know that I am a major truffle lover. Truffle fries, truffle burgers, truffle pancakes, truffle on truffle, on truffle you name it, I’ve had it.

Ethical Fashion: Glasson Flares + Polo Shirt

 

Glassons is one of my staple clothing brands for a few reasons. One, ever since I got into shopping in my early days of high school, Glassons was always an affordable option that remained updated to fashion trends – so I was able to look stylish without breaking bank (and by the bank I mean by chore money).

Floral patterns are timeless. No matter what decade, floral clusters, prints and designs are always coming back in and out of fashion. One of my all-time favourite online Australian stores, Showpo, is completely all for it. There are many new dresses, tops and skirts that are constantly being added that embrace this floral craze.

Recently I was lucky enough to collab with Showpo and typical me, gravitated towards floral pieces. The first outfit I got was a navy floral blue two-piece set that comes with a midi, fitted skirt and a crop top styled with tie-up velvet straps and a flirty sweetheart neckline. I don’t usually wear two-piece sets but I instantly fell in love with how the pair complemented each other so perfectly. To make it a bit more casual I wore the set with white Nike sneakers, a beaded black bag and minimal make-up. Alternatively, if I curled my hair, added heels/mules it would make the set ready for a night out.

For outfit 2 I love love love. I’ve been seeing milkmaid, puffy, ruched sleeves EVERYWHERE! They are a micro-trend that has slowly been making its way into 2019 and I find them such a flattering detail on any basic top or dress. So you can understand why I picked the Halo Dress In Yellow Floral – it has both the cutest sleeves and floral designs! The dress is so comfortable and fits perfectly around the bust so you can get away without wearing a bra – which is always a bonus! I paired the look with micro sunnies in amber, a mini black bag and the funkiest white boots that ooze 70s vibes!

If you are after some fresh, vibrant pieces to add some colour into your wardrobe check out Showpo! Let me know if end up buying some new pieces in the comments below!
