What I Wore: Colour Pop

18th January, 2018

When it comes to my wardrobe I generally tend to favour lots of neutrals and muted tones. I gravitate towards shades that can easily be worked back with the rest of my wardrobe seamlessly but every so often I’ll want to wear a vibrant hue. This navy jumpsuit has a classic feel from the silhouette to the colour, but for a day look it was calling out to be paired with a bold pop of colour to give it a more casual feel. A simple tote is one of my go-tos when I’m out and about and in a bright red it gave my ensemble a fun touch. When working with such a intense colour, I wanted to let it take centre stage so I chose simple accessories. My favourite white Gucci sneakers and black sunglasses seemed the right fit whilst the addition of a pair of drop earrings help to lift the entire ensemble. When it comes to days where I’m out and about, I always like to make a point to turn a casual off duty outfit into something with a little polish without sacrificing comfort and in this instance, a little colour really went a long way.

5 pieces that your summer wardrobe definitely needs

17th January, 2018

We’re halfway through summer already and it’s at this point when your current season wardrobe can sometimes start to feel tired. The novelty of pulling out your warm weather clothes and rediscovering them again has worn off and you may feel the urge to buy something new to refresh you current looks. If you’re planning on indulging in a little retail therapy it’s a great idea to opt for pieces that you can get plenty of wear out of and can be transformed into several different ensembles. If you want to ensure you get maximum cost per wear, these five things definitely offer longevity and versatility.

The cold shoulder dress

The cold shoulder silhouette has cemented its place as one of the key trends of the season so it’s a great style to opt for when it comes to dresses. Grab one in a crisp white and you’ll definitely get plenty of wear out of it.

My pick: This Paxos number incorporates a few dramatic touches such as ruffles and bell sleeves, making it a standout piece.

High waisted denim skirt

A denim skirt should have a permanent place in your summer wardrobe simply because of its sheer versatility. Tees, singlets, button downs… the list of its possible pairings is lengthy.

My pick: Camilla and Marc’s high waisted skirt is just the right shade of blue and its raw hem gives it a little edge.

The black swimsuit

When it comes to swimwear I always go for neutrals and no prints as I find I always get more wear out them that way. A plain black swimsuit or bikini is a must but look for interesting finishing touches to inject a little personality.

My pick: Marysia do gorgeous styles in plain bold colours that more than stand out in a crowd. This top and bottom can be mixed with other pieces in the range if you want to change things up but they work so beautifully together that you’re guaranteed to have them on high rotation.

The colourful slides

Slides are the footwear of choice this season so why not have some fun with them? Look for bright colours, textured finishes and embellishments.

My pick: A bold colourway keeps these Sol Sana slides looking fresh whilst the wavy straps are a playful touch.

The statement sunglasses

Sunglasses can really make an outfit so find a pair that can still work back with the rest of your wardrobe but have standout elements such as coloured lenses, unique frames or fun finishes.

My pick: These Chloe sunglasses are a great stepping stone into embracing statement glasses. They’re unique without being too over the top.

What pieces are you wearing to death this summer?

What I Wore: Ruffle Up

12th December, 2017

I’m all for a sleek pared back look but there are times when I want to embrace something that’s rich in details. This Camilla and Marc dress definitely falls into the latter and is the perfect piece for this time of year. The frilled neckline adds a unique touch and is an eye-catching feature that turns it into something beyond a garden variety summer frock. The gorgeous print is understated allowing the ruffles to stand out and really make a statement. In keeping with the feminine vibe of this look, my Gucci slides with painted floral motif seemed the perfect fit whilst simultaneously grounding the look with its structured silhouette. My burgundy top handle bag adds a touch of colour whilst being the ideal contrast to the peachy shades of the dress. Black sunglasses and a bold pair of drop earrings are the ideal accessories, making for a strong statement without being overwhelming.

What I Wore: Australian Fashion Week 2017 Day Four

17th May, 2017

Everything about this ensemble by Fendi is bold and vibrant which is perfect for another busy day at Fashion Week. As soon as I saw the balloon sleeves of this blouse I knew I wanted to continue the voluminous silhouette by pairing it with culottes. The waved pattern on the pants and the waved detailing on the blouse help give the outfit continuity along with the hints of blue in both. When it comes to volume it was important to have the nipped in waist of the pants in order to avoid the outfit from overwhelming my frame and the streamlined heels to act as a counterpoint to the billowy nature of the rest of my look. I also decided upon a forest green Camilla and Marc coat to complement the blue tones in my pants and blouse and kept accessories to a minimum-just a pair of Celine sunglasses and a simple Jerome Dreyfuss clutch.

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: 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

img_07241111 img_06811111

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: Getting Cosy

2nd June, 2016

IMG_4739Temperatures how really dropped of late so it’s now time to officially pull out all my cosy winter gear. This great cardigan by Life with Bird is the ideal go-to piece to throw on over a tee, and the black and white grid pattern gives it a great point of difference. I searched high and low for a pair of jeans that would easily transition from day to night and this pair by Camilla and Marc is the perfect shade of blue to be a bit of a wardrobe chameleon; it can easily work for a variety of different looks. My Preen sunglasses have been on high rotation of late because they’re so versatile and I love that the cat-eye detail gives them a bit of a vintage feel. I’ve teamed this look with my Proenza Schouler clutch and Aquazurra heels to give it a dressier feel but if could easily be dressed down with a pair of sneakers and a tote for casual weekend wear.

The winter staple your wardrobe needs

20th April, 2016

As we move into the cooler autumn weather and into winter you’ll soon find that the blazer will be an all important style staple to get you through the next few months. A great black blazer is a constant in my wardrobe and easily pulls together a look. Plus the hue is versatile and timeless so it’s easy to get plenty of wear out of it and also have it for seasons to come.

A great relaxed fit blazer like the one above by Chloe is the ideal cut to take you from work to the weekend. Team it with a structured bag a la the Givenchy Antigona and statement accessories like the above Karen Walker sunglasses and you’ve got yourself an eternally chic look. A single breasted jacket is always a safe bet, however if you’re after something slightly different try a double breasted option or look for interesting finishing touches such as gold buttons or a flared sleeve.

There are so many great blazers out this season. If you’re looking for an investment piece my favourite designer picks are the “Phoenix” by Bec & Bridge , this one by Rag and Bone, the “Boss Lady” by Bec & Bridge, plus this one by Dion Lee and this double breasted option                   by Camilla and Marc

If you’re after a more budget conscious buy there are plenty of great options out there. The first and second looks are from Lavish Alice on ASOS and The Iconic also has another great look for $89.95!

What I Wore: The Classics

5th April, 2016

IMG_1712

There are some style staples that are eternally chic and at the top of most lists are a crisp white shirt and blue jeans. This pairing will always be a classic and with good reason – it’s understated, easy to pull together and let’s face it, unbelievably comfortable. I’ve opted for a more relaxed take on this look with a loose fitting Studio.W shirt and distressed denim, but if you want to dress it up simply opt for a more structured shirt and darker denim. To complement this look I’ve kept it quite simple with a black Proenza Schouler clutch, Preen sunglasses and statement Aquazurra heels and a neutral-hued Christian Paul watch.

On the hunt for the perfect white shirt? Scroll below for my favourite style and steal picks.
