Let’s be honest here, one of my favourite things to do while in Bali is shopping! I know it is a little shallow of me as obviously the island has a lot more to offer, but seriously the shops in Seminyak in particular are so on point it would be a shame not to take a look!
Here is a round up of 5 shops you must visit in Seminyak.
FOR THE SOPHISTICATED LADY – PAULINA KATARINA
Paulina Katarina is one of my new discoveries. I was heading to BodyWorks, just next door but I was a bit early to my appointment, so decided to take a look at this boutique I had never seen before. As soon as I entered, I was literally picking something out of each rack !
They have a gorgeous collection of effortless chic clothes suitable for every occasion. It is not very fashionable or sexy, but it is feminine, elegant and the fabrics are beautiful and that is what I need in my closet right now !

FOR THE ELEGANT BOHEMIAN – PALMA AUSTRALIA
Again a new one for me and OMG, this one is my favourite of the list!
Exactly what I love: a little bohemian, lots of lace, plenty of white and feminine design suitable for a day at work or a long night out! Once again I frenetically picked up white outfits (yes only white!) from the racks and thanks god they didn’t have my size for several pieces otherwise it would have been very very bad! Eventually I bought only one top and I actually kinda regret not buying a few more of their precious pieces! I am looking through their website as I type this article and I pretty much love everything they have.
For a good deal, head over to the outlet store.

FOR THE FASHIONISTA – BAMBOO BLONDE
There is something for every fashionista in Bali’s famous BAMBOO BLONDE ! This Australian brand is always at the top of the trend and offers a large variety of clothes, accessories and even small home decorations. If you want to have the perfect Bali / Australian beach babe look, this is it! I tried quite a few things but decided I really didn’t need more beach clothes (am I getting old?) and only left with a slogan t-shirt – “FEMINIST” (nope, not getting old !)

FOR THE BEACH BABE – BALI BOAT SHED
My all time favorite for beach / island wear ! My favorite long dresses come from here. Bali Boat Shed is a concept store with a multitude of local and international brands for both ladies and gents. You can find a good assortment of short sexy dresses, long beach dresses, swimsuits, sunglasses and some jewellery. With its colorful exterior, it is also a great Instagram location!
