Shopping with Nikki from Styling You

Ever since I discovered Styling You I've dreamed about going on a shopping adventure with Nikki. I'm not one who inhereted the style gene and I need someone with me to point out what works and what doesn't. I got my wish on Friday!

It was a busy day. Mrs. Woog and I started out getting blow dries and doing our nails in preparation for the GSK event that evening and AusBlogCon on Saturday. We had a window of a couple of hours to complete our shopping and get back to the hotel to change. We had to stay focused!

After lunch we met Nikki who had just arrived from the Sunshine Coast. Hugs, squees, face pinches, more hugs. Then, down to business. We hit the shops on Oxford Street.

If you remember my earlier post with Nikki, you'll know we were looking for something soft and flowing to wear in lieue of my usual jeans and t-shirts.  Our first stop was Country Road.




I tried on several outfits and finally settled on this sweater dress. I wanted something I could wear with my over-the-knee boots and we thought this would do the trick. I also bought a long, black wool cardigan that can be dressed up or down.





Next we headed off down the street and ducked into a trendy little shop that Mrs. Woog had spied earlier that morning. Nikki thought my life would not be complete without a maxi skirt, so I walked out of the shop with this:



At this point my credit card was crying uncle and the girls were muttering something about wine o'clock so we found a nice little pub and had a glass before heading back to the hotel for a quick change.

Power shopping. Check!

Thanks Nikki for the wonderful shopping adventure. You are a national treasure!

    1. Don't you just kind of drape them around your neck? That's the only way I know to wear them!

      Thanks lovely. xo
