Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia: My Style (Days 5 and 6)

Here's my little corner of that magazine: my street style looks from days 5 and 6 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. 

Bargain hunters, get your happy faces at the ready, this post includes one of my most photographed looks: a $18 playsuit*

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia: My Style (Days 3 & 4)

MBFWA street style

Fashion week is always a mixed bag. Some people are inspired by what they see on the runway and some are more wowed by what they see on the guests.

Fashion week: a plethora of stunning clothes, new faces, old friends, endless flashing lights and blistered toes. If only the glasses of champagne and front row views could be forever...**sighs**.

How To Get The Perfect Fake Tan

fake tan tips 

 Living in tropical Australia, one of the most common things I get asked about is my tan. I'll tell you now: it's fake.

As a matter of fact, I am the biggest (and safest) anti-UV granny when it comes to real tanning. I wear SPF 50 and take shade under the palms when I visit my beachy paradises.

Growing up in the UK, the slightest slither of sun would see my pasty, white bod laying face down on a sun bed. Now I live in one of the hottest and sunniest places in the Western world and I'm always covered in sun block. Why? 1 in 3 Australian women will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. 

Fortunately, getting a tan can be easy, safe and is waaay faster then a 2 week wrinkle-causing bake out! 

Today I share with you my top tips to get that perfect sunkissed glow, whilst flouncing around paradise in my Black lace swimsuit* from Lookbook Store.

Taking the bohemian festival look for a tour of the tropics, I team my off-shoulder floral playsuit with Chelsea boots and a wrap choker.

Do prints get more Dolce & Gabbana than this? This Mediterranean floral print is made for sandy toes and tanned shoulders!
