Australia’s home to some great chain store brands and one that’s always got some great pieces is Witchery. If you’re after polished pieces that are also on trend then it’s the kind of brand that you’ll most definitely find something that you’ll want to add to cart. And with everything from shoes to accessories and classic cuts and colours, it’s one label that will allow you to update your wardrobe without completely blowing your budget.
I’m the first to vouch for adding a pair of leather pants to your autumn/winter wardrobe but why not be a bit different and opt for colour. These pink pants are feminine and fun and will certainly make for a stylish winter warmer.
Whenever I attend a fashion show I always like to show support for the brand by wearing one of their pieces. I was lucky enough to be able to wear the below Aje dress before it has dropped in stores and it was the perfect vibe for their show which took place in Sydney’s Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden.
The gorgeous colour perfectly complemented the lush surrounds but I was all about the beautiful silhouette of the dress. The exaggerated flounces on the skirt and sleeve had great movement and it was just one of those pieces that’s just fun to walk in! The tie front added a sweet and feminine touch. I can see this working for everything from a work event to a wedding so it ticks the versatile box for me.
As the dress is already so striking I wanted to take it up a notch even more and opted to pair it with my Marco de Vincenzo heels. The braided style and the raspberry colour provided the ideal contrast piece whilst being strong enough to make their own statement.

As anyone who has ever had to go through the ordeal of shopping for the perfect bikini can attest, it’s damn hard work. Finding just the right style, just the right colour or print and just the right fit can be fraught with frustration as you search high and low for the elusive two piece that works on all fronts.
This summer why not keep your swimsuit search on home soil and check out boutique brand Peony swimwear. Their bikinis are designed to be mixed and matched so you can pair up identical prints or clash colours and choose a top and bottom design that not only suits your shape but in different sizes too, so you’re guaranteed the ideal fit.
Mix and match your ideal bikini on Peony’s website
Also if you’re the kind of girl who’d rather stay in her pyjamas and enjoy a glass of wine whilst she shops than have to deal with less than flattering change room fluorescent lighting then you’ll be glad to know you can shop Peony’s site from the comfort of your own home. The dual scrolling function on their website is super helpful for online shoppers as you’re able to mix and match swimsuits with an accompanying visual reference of what it will look like paired up. A definite handy feature when you’re not in a bricks and mortar store.
This summer your perfect swimsuit could be just a mouse click away.
Tell me-what are some of your go-to swimsuit brands in summer?
If you’ve stumbled across the Instagram account of Australian brand Posse you may have already compiled a rather lengthy shopping list of pieces to add to your spring/summer wardrobe. The homegrown label’s aesthetic could be described as vintage inspired with a slightly French feel and the result is ultra wearable off duty pieces that won’t break the bank. The finishing details are what elevates each piece— whether it’s a perfectly positioned ruffled edge on a skirt to a sweet crossover straps on a jumpsuit, every piece is one that feels considered while still managing to look effortless. An interesting thing to note is that every garment is handmade by Balinese craftswomen who are able to work from home, at their own pace, allowing them the freedom to care for their families whilst still earning an above average wage. A guilt-free purchase wouldn’t you say?
These eight looks are deserving of a spot in your spring/summer wardrobe…
