What I Wore: Light and Breezy

14th December, 2016

It’s the season for lightweight, breezy summer dressing and this Scanlan Theodore maxi dress is perfect for warm, balmy days. Blue and white has always been synonymous with this time of year for me as it looks so fresh. I love the strapless neckline and the oversized bow at the back which gives a touch of sweetness without being too saccharine. I paired it with my metallic Witchery sandals to give the look a little bit of edge and kept it quite paired back with minimalist accessories in a neutral colour palette such as my Loewe bag to really allow the dress to take centre stage. I can see myself definitely wearing this in the months ahead as I take advantage of the sunshine.

12 Insta-outfit ideas to steal this week

14th November, 2016

If you had a bonafide wardrobe meltdown this morning because you had absolutely no idea what to wear then consider this the answer to all your problems. Enjoy 12 very well-dressed women with plenty of style to give you endless wardrobe inspo.

Play with some bold accessories that have plenty of personality. The choker is still very much every blogger’s best friend.

Pick one colour to carry throughout your outfit for a cohesive look that screams you’re in the sartorial big league.

Sweet finishes such as the tie on Stein’s shirt paired with ’70s style wide leg pants give a relaxed vibe.

Pick a statement bag (metallic detailing is still very of the moment) and work your outfit around it.

Monochrome always delivers a polished finish but don’t be afraid to experiment. Pair a dressy skirt with slightly more relaxed pieces such as a tee and slides a la Donaldson.

A matching set is adorable but when paired with cute ’60s inspired accessories it makes a statement.

A sleek suit is eternally stylish. Choose one in an interesting fabric to give the look a point of difference.

Go all out with one aspect of your outfit. This patterned skirt with its vibrant hues steals the show in the best possible way.

Traditional blue jeans paired with a printed button down shirt is the ideal off duty look.

Take a preppy outfit and pair it with white sneakers for an unexpected ensemble.

A relaxed fit denim jacket will serve your wardrobe well. It’s the ultimate multitasker as it will work with everything from a tee and jeans to dresses and skirts.

The sleeveless blazer elevates this look from corporate to style savvy. Plus in a bold pink it shows you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t mind taking a fashion risk or two.

What I Wore: Spring whites

27th October, 2016

There’s nothing like a crisp white dress to really herald the start of easy-breezy spring dressing and this wrap dress with kimono sleeves and subtle pleating by Tome has been a nice addition to my wardrobe as its the perfect blank canvas for myriad looks. I decided to keep this particular look quite pared back and just go for a simple monochrome palette. A simple Jerome Dreyfuss mini shoulder bag with chain handle helped to counterbalance the feminine style of the dress and really gave the look some edge. I kept my accessories to a minimum for this particular outfit, with just a pair of classic black sunglasses and some of my favourite bracelets adding some interesting finishing touches to an otherwise simple ensemble. Sometimes it really is all about taking a less is more approach.

What I Wore: Like a lady

24th October, 2016

After being at home with a newborn and a toddler over the last few months it has been nice to slowly ease myself back into work – and getting to dress up again! I’ve had a few work events pop up recently and it has been great to have Nadia in Sydney to attend them with.

I wanted to wear something ladylike but with an edge to a recent function and really loved the above khaki coloured dress by Christopher Esber. I think the shade is right on trend and really provided a great base colour for one of my new fave blazers by Camilla and Marc. It really made the crisp white colour pop. The statement shoulders and nipped in waist also give the blazer a really flattering silhouette. I am loving all things Gucci at the moment as they have really just been nailing it in both the accessories and ready to wear department and this bag with its fun appliqué design and chain strap really elevated the traditional monogram print of the bag.

What I Wore: Coffee Date

20th October, 2016

There’s nothing I love more than catching up for coffee with a girlfriend so it was lovely to get back into the swing of things and catch up with Nadia. I’ve been busy with Grace and Sophia recently and comfort has been key so it was nice to be able to dress up for a little time out.

I love an all white look and the beautiful spring weather allowed me to finally wear the above Lover dress. I particularly love the sleeve detail which gives it a beautiful finishing touch. As the dress is quite feminine my favourite Adidas Superstars were the perfect way to ground the outfit a little and also give the look a bit  more of a relaxed vibe. I think pairing dresses with sneakers has been a great way to really take an otherwise quite formal look in a different direction and I will definitely be trying this combination again over the new few months.

Steal her style: Julie Sarinana

19th August, 2016

If there’s one thing Julie Sariñana the founder of fashion blog Sincerely Jules can do it’s pull together a great casual look. Hailing from Los Angeles she has mastered how to do the Californian high-low mix beautifully. Case in point: she’s often spotted mixing a blazer with a great pair of denim shorts or a simple summer dress with a pair of statement heels. She keeps most of her looks quite pared back but loves to add a great print or some amazing accessories to really elevate an outfit. She’s the perfect example of how to do cool casual with a sophisticated touch.

Want to steal Sariñana’s style? Check out my style vs steal options below.

Neutral blazer

A great neutral blazer is almost as versatile as one in a darker shade. A light blazer is perfect for spring when it’s that tricky time of trans-seasonal dressing and you need a light cover up in the evenings.

White tee

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again you can never have too many white tees. A simple white tee will work with numerous outfits so it will always be a welcome addition to any wardrobe.

Leather pants

Have you invested in leather pants yet? If not, I suggest you do! You’ll find they’re as versatile as jeans, maybe even more so and they’re so ridiculously comfy too.

Black sneakers

White sneakers are definitely a go-to but black are also worth trying for their slightly dressier appearance. White laces are ideal for a more casual look but if you want to give it a sophisticated touch swap them for a black pair.

Chain strap bag

If Chanel bags showed us anything it’s a great chain strap bag is a great addition to any wardrobe. A plain or patterned bag with a chain strap will work well simply decide according to your mood.

Aviator sunglasses

A touch of Top Gun never goes astray! A pair of great aviators are the ideal sunglasses to wear when you’re after something slightly more dressy.
