This week I’m using the “I’m going to Melbourne” mantra to get me

looking forward to having two fantastic style advisors with me as we embark on all the
fashion treats Melbourne has to offer. My wishlist definitely includes jeans and shoes and after all the fun of the SnS Print Challenge last week, I’m
particularly keen on adding some printed knitwear to my suitcase. My inspiration includes:
