Forster | Roadtripping Australia

Travel Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, at one mile beach in Forster Australia
 We almost didn't make a stop in Forster during our road trip because we had visited there last year on a little weekend away. But as we were looking at the map, we realized that this town held a special place in our hearts and we needed to take the opportunity to visit it once again. Also, the last time we were there, it wasn't quite warm enough to swim in the water and of course we had to try out that beach, which takes my breath away every time I see it.

Back to Byron | Roadtripping Australia

HOW TO WEAR a Striped Tee from Day to Night

How To Wear: The Striped Tee From Day To Night
As the second feature of my "How To Wear" series -- I wanted to feature something that most of us already have in our wardrobes -- the striped shirt. This one from Riot Theory is a bit special because it has these beautiful flared sleeves and gorgeous ribbed material, but the same rules apply to any striped shirt.

HOW TO WEAR a Sheer Bodysuit 5 Ways

I've always had a rule -- I can only buy a new piece of clothing if I can think of 5 ways to wear it. I'm definitely no stranger to re-wearing a look that I love, but it's always nice to have multiple options to keep things fresh. Of course, this rule doesn't apply to dresses as they are pretty much one piece outfits, but with everything else, the rule sticks.

Off The Shoulder Dress Love

The Perfect Summer Wrap Dress

Fashion and travel blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing a KAYVALYA Raya Wrap Dress in vintage blue floral
Wrap dresses are one of the hottest looks at the moment and it's easy to see why. They hug the body in all the right places, show off just enough decolletage and then float away at exactly the right spot. I've yet to see a woman that a wrap dress doesn't flatter and I almost think she doesn't exist.

Bali, My Love

Fashion and travel blogger, Alison Hutchinson, at the rice terraces in Ubud, Bali
It's been about a week since we left Bali and I already feel like it was a lifetime ago. I miss the heat, the beach being just footsteps from our door, the tasty food and the relaxed way of life more than I can explain. We spent 3 months on this beautiful island and it has become a second home.

The Day After Nyepi

fashion and travel blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing a Billabong Romper on the beach in Bali
Yesterday was quite a special day in Bali as it was their New Year, or Nyepi Day. The Balinese have a tradition of turning inward for a day of quiet contemplation. The entire island shuts down -- there is to be no activity, no noise, no lights and no going outside. Even the airport shuts down for an entire 24 hours.
