Hello lovely people! I'm am so thrilled to share with you my Winter in the City look for the  Wish x Honda style Challenge. I fell in love with this gorgeous, fluffy geometric grid printed Wish Crossed Cardi and couldn't wait to style it. What I love about the Cardi is its flexibility to be dressed up or down. I played around with the idea of styling it over an all black look, allowing the white geometric pattern to take centre stage but then opted for a fun and preppy theme. As I'm sure you already know by now, I love the idea of combining new with vintage pieces as it allows you to create a truly unique look. I styled the Crossed Cardi with a vintage skirt I bought in Amsterdam. I thought the two were a match made in heaven as the hand stitched detail tied in beautifully with the geometric grid. To help produce a preppy feel I added knee high socks which I like to play around with on those more mild winter days. 

I absolutely adore winter fashion. You can create so much depth to your looks through layering. I am also obsessed with winter fabrics; the texture, tone and feel of them.
I particularly love Melbourne winter as it is not overbearingly cold which means we can still sometimes combine some summer pieces with our winter woolies. 

I want to thank Wish and Honda Australia for inviting me to take part in the Winter In The City Style Challenge. To view other Style Challenge outfits simply search #wishhondacity on Instagram.

Hello lovely people. I want to apologise for being a phantom on Dusty Petals over the past month.  For those of you who follow Dusty Petals Facebook page or Instagram, you will know that I have been overseas. We traveled to Paris, what a charming and beautiful city. After Paris we went to Ireland to celebrate our friend's wedding. We had the most incredible time. Those Irish sure know how to party! We then explored the incredible city of Amsterdam and all its art history.  Finally,  on the way home we went to Singapore to soak up some vitamin D and of course do some serious shopping. It was such an amazing time away. 

 One piece that I wore to death overseas was this gorgeous houndstooth coat that I was generously gifted by   I thought what better way to show you this piece than in the streets of Paris during my trip.  Not only was this coat incredibly comfortable and warm but it made a bold statement standing out amongst the sea of black worn by the Parisians. is an online store which provides fun, on trend pieces for such an affordable price.
