Spring Update Goodbye autumn, hello spring! I’m welcoming spring with a (totally justifiable) shopping trip to find a few key pieces that will see me through the new season. The best news is that these items will be on high-rotation in my wardrobe during summer too – so that makes these pieces an investment right?

Give the heels a break and embrace comfort with a new pair of flat sandals. There are a huge variety of styles available in stores for the new season. A pair of tan-coloured sandals/flats will give the illusion that your legs are much longer than they are. However, if your legs are one of your best assets, then go bold with a black strappy option or something fun with detail.


The off-the-shoulder bohemian trend is extremely popular at the moment. Give the cold-shoulder in a sweet top or dress, it’s a versatile and feminine style that will have you feeling like you’re on a tropical holiday. Add a bell sleeve to the look to make more of a statement.


If you don’t already have a basic white button up shirt then it’s time to find one you love. I recommend spending more on a good quality linen or cotton shirt. The fit is important and you’ll find the cheaper options will never look as good, or will only last a few wash cycles.


It’s time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather we are so lucky to have on the Sunshine Coast. Sneakers are the latest must-have shoe and the good news is that they are totally functional – whether you wear them casually or for exercise. The added bonus is that a new pair of Nikes will give you a little extra motivation to move.
