The Australian Open is always a huge event on the sporting calendar and is definitely one of the highlights of summer. So I was excited to be able to attend an event celebrating its launch at Melbourne’s Crown Casino over the weekend.
When it comes to outdoor events, I always like to keep my outfit light and airy so this co-ordinating set from Zimmermann seemed the perfect choice. Crisp white is always ideal at this time of year, and I loved the pairing of the crop top with statement sleeves and the drop hem skirt for a look that was feminine and polished yet still maintained a relaxed, summery vibe.
As far as my accessories went, I couldn’t go past my straw Poolside bag which has been on high rotation over the last few weeks. I’m really loving simple, natural textures worked back with more elegant pieces, which in this case came in the form of my fave Bottega Veneta heels. Topping off my look were my new Chloe sunglasses with their sweet scalloped frames and had just the right look and feel for this particular ensemble.

Every year, I love heading down to Melbourne to check out the Australian Open. The atmosphere is a lot of fun and there’s always plenty to see and do. This year, I was invited by Country Road to check out the tennis so what better opportunity to rock an outfit from their new season collection to head courtside. I love gingham prints so this wrap skirt with subtle split was a comfortable and stylish option for the day. I paired it with a classic white crew neck tee, whose simple, streamlined design worked perfectly with the busy print of the skirt and is the kind of versatile style staple that post-event can work with the rest of my wardrobe. I kept to a blue colour palette with the rest of my ensemble, opting to pair it with my navy top handle Bulgari bag and cat-eye sunglasses with mirrored lenses. It was the ideal understated look for a casual day out.
