What I Wore: White on White

5th April, 2017

I’ve always been a fan of a head-to-toe white ensemble – it’s chic and elegant and really makes quite an impactful style statement. I don’t often wear suits but I couldn’t resist this ensemble. Double breasted jackets have experienced a resurgence of late but in a more modern incarnation – the boxy cuts are gone and in its place is a more streamlined silhouette which makes for a more flattering fit. I love that this jacket is also really versatile and can work easily with the rest of my wardrobe whether thrown over a dress or teamed with jeans. If there’s one thing that goes beautifully with a crisp white outfit it’s gold accessories. In this instance I’ve opted for gilded statement earrings to complement my look. With the addition of a neutral oversized clutch and simple black heels I’m ready to conquer the day ahead.

What I Wore: A touch of metal

21st March, 2017

Now that the weather has started to cool down it’s the perfect time to start introducing luxe winter fabrics into my wardrobe. This metallic jacquard skirt by Life with Bird is the ideal statement piece from which to work back the rest of my look. I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit quite simple and elegant so I opted to team the skirt with a black ribbed knit funnel neck top and black accessories to allow the skirt to take centre stage. A simple oversized clutch is large enough to fit all my everyday essentials and is work and event appropriate, whilst my Mimco strappy heels are perfect for taking me from the office to a function with ease.

What I Wore: Summer daze

19th January, 2017

When it comes to easy outfit options I can’t go past a simple dress. This Maison du Maillot dress with its distinctive print and billowy sleeves can easily work with a pair of sneakers or sandals for day and a pair of heels by night.  With such a busy pattern, I opted to keep my accessories to a minimum to allow the dress to take centre stage. On busy days, having a go-to outfit that I can easily throw on to get out the door fast is my little sartorial shortcut.

2016: My year in outfits

30th December, 2016

It’s been another big year! From being pregnant to welcoming a new baby and becoming a mum of two, Fashion Week and so many amazing and exciting events I’ve certainly had a lot of fun with my wardrobe in 2016. Here’s a look back at the year that was and looking forward to more sartorial adventures in 2017!

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.

What I Wore: Layered Luxe

19th July, 2016

Photo 17-06-2016, 12 15 37 PM

If ever there’s a time for layering it’s winter. When battling chilly weather it’s all about adding lots of cosy layers. It’s also a great way to maximise wear out of spring/summer pieces and transition them into the cooler weather. Case in point: I wore this  Christopher Esber dress with scalloped lace insert over a Witchery knit and added a Witchery sleeveless trench to give it a touch more warmth. Whilst the Christopher Esber dress is a great option for evening events it can easily be dressed down by pairing it with more casual footwear, which I did in this instance by opting for my patent Trenery Oxfords. It’s easy to get absorbed by monochrome looks throughout winter (it’s a stylish colour combination after all) so I wanted to add a pop of colour to this outfit to brighten it up. My colourful Chanel oversized clutch is a favourite of mine due to its vibrant jewel tones and it’s also the perfect size to carry my everyday essentials when I’m out and about.

What I Wore: Beach Days

13th August, 2015

IMG_0123
I’m currently on a family holiday in Italy and have been loving spending my days by the beach and enjoying the sunshine. When it comes to beachwear, I like to keep it simple. I usually opt for monochrome colours for swimwear or something classic like khaki or navy. I think wearing a crisp white shirt kaftan over a black bikini is always a great look at the beach. This Studio.W shirt is perfect for travel as it can be worn in so many different ways. I can wear it as a kaftan when I am at the beach or team it with a skirt or jeans and I can easily wear it if I’m heading out for lunch or dinner.
