Long Weekend Dressing
No matter which corner of Australia you reside in, there is no denying that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to fun-filled day trips and weekends away. 
Here is a list of Estelle’s favourite day trip locations and adventures fit for a long weekend… and the perfect autumn outfits to match!


Mabu Mabu, Victoria

A dining experience like no other, Mabu Mabu is a contemporary take on traditional Torres Strait Island cooking techniques and ingredients. 
With menu items spanning between fried damper, local seafood, kangaroo and emu, Mabu Mabu encourages you to join them on a long weekend culinary adventure.
Situated in Federation Square, Melbourne CBD, Mabu Mabu should be on your bucket list this long weekend. 

When it comes to smart casual dining style, you cannot overlook the Yvette Dress or the Jasmine Rose Dress. Wear the Savannah Blazer over your shoulders for a comfortable and chic street-style look to and from the venue.


Mt. Mulligan Lodge, Queensland

Take a walk on the wild side and enjoy a 3-day stay at Mt. Mulligan Lodge, Queensland. Sunny Queensland continues to earn its title, with average Autumn temperatures sitting between 20-30 degrees. The majority of your stay will utilize Mt. Mulligan walking trails and scenic experiences; However, we suggest opting for their intimate dinner for two under the stars. This bespoke experience is limited to two people per night, so be sure to book this experience well ahead of your stay.
An intimate seven-course degustation under the stars calls for a new dress. The In Bloom Dress or Leafy Tiered Dress will have you feeling your best while you indulge in this super exclusive experience.


Sydney Harbour Sunset Cruise, New South Wales

When it comes to monumental experiences in New South Wales, you do not need to look much further than Sydney Harbour. Traced with an abundance of restaurants and bars, all you need to worry about is requesting a table with a breathtaking view. Take your experience to the next level on the Sydney Harbour Sunset Dinner Cruise. Attendees are served a delicious three-course meal and unmatched views as you weave your way through some of Australia's most iconic landmarks.

A smart casual affair, we recommend wearing the Evergreen Garden Dress or Boysenberry Bloom Dress.

Barossa Valley, South Australia

A Sommelier’s dream, the Barossa Valley is one of South Australia's premium wine regions and home to the likes of Penfolds, Hentley Farm and Rockford Winery. The Barossa offers a vast selection of wineries spanning between highly awarded ‘must visit’ sites to off-the-beaten-track intimate cellar doors.

As the seasons change and the rows of vineyards transition into a sea of autumnal hues, a cruisy weekend exploring the Barossa Valley is one for the bucket list. 

We recommend pairing the Cut Out Knit Black, Woodland Pant and Georgie Trench for easy wear yet a well-presented look.

Wherever you journey this long weekend, be sure to look the part and allow Estelle to offer you a versatile transitional capsule wardrobe.
