Pretty In The City: City Girl Turned Island Girl

Melanie Smith 1

This post is part of my ‘Pretty in the City’ series in which I showcase some of my gorgeous readers’ outfits. If you’d like to be featured please send me your photos via email I’d love to hear from you!


I’m so happy to feature my close friend Melanie Smith on the blog today. Melanie recently moved from Auckland City to Waiheke Island which may have impacted her lifestyle but not her fabulous sense of fashion!

Here’s what she had to say about today’s pics:

‘I’ve always been  been a city girl (I lived in an inner city apartment for 13 years) but last year I decided to leave my job in public relations to live my long time dream of working with dogs on Waiheke Island. These days I spend most of my time in training gear or gumboots but thanks to the abundance of gorgeous vineyards and amazing restaurants on Waiheke Island I still gets plenty of opportunities to get dressed up and have a good time! This pic was taken at Te Motu Vineyeard which is one of my favorite restaurants on the island. The playsuit is by Asos and it’s been the perfect summer’s outfit!’

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us Mel!
