I was recently asked by Westfield if I wanted to take part in a blogger style challenge. As part of the challenge bloggers were asked to shop a complete summer trend for under $200.
The choices were from Colour Blocking, Monochrome, Safari Prints, Stripes or 70's inspired Boho. I chose to shop for a boho look, inspired by the boho queen Isabel Lucas! I love Isabel's casual boho style, I wanted to see if I could achieve something similar but still me. I also really love all the crystal jewellery around right now, so boho was my obvious choice. It also suits the Queensland weather well!


Red & Orange cotton dress $45, Amethyst Ring $25, Agate Ring $12 - Tree of Life
Coral Sandals $49.95 - Novo
Crochet Tank $39.95 - City Beach

I met up with the Westfield Insider, Alyce for an afternoon of shopping. It was so much fun! Alyce took me through some of the key pieces for achieving a boho look, and I never would of thought to look in Tree Of Life! But Alyce showed me the treasures that can be found there!

I was doubtful I could achieve a whole outfit for under $200, sometimes I can spend that all on one piece... but I actually came in under budget. I looked at buying some bangles with the last of the money, but I had a bunch at home already from my trip to India, so styled the outfit with those.

  7. This is such a great look, goes to show you don't need to spend heaps of money to come up with something that looks stylish and on trend.

  8. Great job! I love that you used a bold red - it makes it look more updated than some sort-of-recent boho trends.
    I probably would have gone for colour blocking or monochrome. I really want a plain white minimalist dress... like someone from the future.
    Very pretty :)

  9. @Hannah Percyowl ~ yes! I thought the brighter colour also goes with the brights summer trend right now. Colour Blocking was my second choice...loving that look too, but not sure I can pull it off :P

  12. I had no idea Tree Of Life holds so many treasures... honestly, I always skip it when I'm in a mall cause of the hippy dippy window displays... but... those amethyst rings are super well priced and total style blogger must haves!

    You look really fabulous in these shots - job well done!

  18. Catherine @ The Spring ~ same! I never though to shop there before. Although there is still lots of over the top hippie type clothes, you can find some really nice cotton dresses for layering and their crystal jewellery is the best Ive seen for that price range!

  42. I love Tree of Life! It's funny because it isn't really my style at all but whenever I get over to Australia I find so many gorgeous things in there.

    This outfit is so wonderful. I love the colour on you and how amazing is that dress? You look great!
