Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week

10th June, 2021

After a hectic few days of multiple outfit changes at Fashion Week last week, I wanted to keep things as simple and low key as I possibly could this week, so I opted for a capsule wardrobe approach. What I love about having a limited selection of pieces to choose from is that it forces you to reuse pieces and think of new ways to do so, but it takes away the overwhelm that comes from using your entire wardrobe. So I settled on a few winter staples—a great coat, a trusty pair of jeans and accessories that would work back with lots of different outfit iterations. Here’s what I wore this week.

I got this coat a few seasons ago and it’s been such a good addition to my wardrobe because it’s on high rotation every winter. A patterned coat is such a great way to lift a pared back outfit, and it really adds an element of interest when you’re working with a simple colour palette. These jeans were a pre-emptive winter buy and they’ve proven themselves to be super versatile. Paired with a black top, this outfit is the kind of elevated casual look that I will turn to time and time again.

See what I mean about this coat? Totally different outfit vibe but it still works. I did a denim on denim look on this day, and I have to say I’ve been wearing this Camilla and Marc denim jacket non-stop. It’s the perfect oversized fit and it works back so well with so many other pieces in my wardrobe. I went for sneakers to keep the look comfy and casual, but a Chanel backpack adds a luxe touch!

This is one of those failsafe outfit combinations that I have on hand when I don’t really want to have to think about what I’m wearing. A white top and jeans is always a classic pairing, but popping on a black blazer over the top gives it a polished feel. I dialled down it down from looking too dressy with a pair of sandals to keep it comfy and cool, and added a splash of colour with my green Dior tote.

I wore this outfit again (what did I say about a great capsule wardrobe?) minus the coat and it makes such a good go-to uniform. I’ve worn jeans every day this week which is a pretty accurate representation of how a lot of my weeks go, as denim is such a versatile base for an outfit. I can pair it with pretty much anything and it just works.

Fashion, What I Wore

Afterpay Australian Fashion Week Day 4

3rd June, 2021

I’ve always been a fan of classic tailoring. It forms the backbone of a lot of my outfits, and while classic is great, I do like pieces that have a bit of a twist. An unexpected point of difference that takes a tailored piece into a different direction. And it’s one of the reasons why I was so excited to be wearing this look today. Each piece in this outfit is a classic silhouette but with a modern touch. The classic white shirt I was wearing today  had these amazing finishes such as the metal trim at the neck and the oversized cuffs. I found it took a forever staple like a button down white shirt and gave it a slightly more fashion forward feel. While tailored black pants are always a failsafe option, what I loved about this Camilla and Marc design is the contrasting stitching, which gave it a little extra lift, a little extra personality. And what’s better than a trench to tie a whole look together? This Esse trench is the epitome of sleek, sophisticated outerwear, and when thrown over a shirt and pant pairing, it instantly just makes this look feel extra considered, and so polished.

I’ve been having fun with accessorising this week, but I’ve also discovered just how good my go-to pieces really are. These white Bottega Veneta slingbacks for example have been a welcome addition to my closet for a few seasons and they’ve had quite a few outings this week simply because they’re so versatile. Also I love that it takes a classic slingback silhouette, and makes it more modern with the sturdier heel and strap. I couldn’t pass up this buttery leather Fendi bag, which is just the perfect relaxed shape to provide a counterpoint to the more refined nature of the rest of my outfit. And with a few late nights this week sunglasses were a must! These crisp white Pared sunglasses are a little mod, and proof that even the smallest of accessories can make a big difference.

What I wore this week

27th May, 2021

It’s always fun to get to play around with a few new pieces in a wardrobe rotation and this week it’s all about some fun winter purchases. I always map out what I’m going to splurge on at the start of a new season and so far, the pieces I have have been seamlessly able to work into my regular outfit repertoire. I think that’s always the sign of a good purchase! From double denim one minute to splashes of Barbie pink the next, here’s what I wore this week.

Sometimes a look is cemented on the colour alone, and that was certainly the case with this Aje suit. I was off to lunch in this number, and it certainly perked me up — how could it not with that playful made-for-Barbie pink? Also I think this is further proof that a suit doesn’t have to be exclusively the domain of classic neutrals. You can definitely afford to have a little fun with it.

With my little sidekick here, and rocking our shades of pink. I love the soft baby pink hue of this jumper as it’s so easy to match with virtually everything in my wardrobe. I paired it with some trusty denim and sneakers and I was ready to tackle my day with Grace.

Some people love it, some people hate it but I’m the first to admit that I’m quite partial to a Canadian tuxedo. This double denim look is all Camilla and Marc, and both work really well together, but also separately. I’ve been able to work these two pieces in so many different ways, which is always a big tick in my book.

My go-to uniform: a white tee and jeans. It always works without fail and I know I can rely on it on those days when I just want a no-fuss look that still looks stylish. I added a touch of colour with the emerald green Dior bag (which FYI is such a great size as it pretty much fits my entire life comfortably) and my fave sandals. I love when a look just comes together like this.

On my radar: In The Roundhouse placemats, Tash Sefton Supergas and a Camilla and Marc denim jacket

7th May, 2021

Shopping around this month, I’ve uncovered so many beautiful things to lust over. It’s that time of year where I’ve been on the hunt for new pieces to add to my winter wardrobe, and also a few staples that need replenishing and I’ve managed to compile quite the list. This month, it’s all about shoes (naturally), and also the Camilla and Marc denim jacket that’s been inspired by a tried and tested staple I already own, and a fun and playful piece I’ve got bookmarked for my next event at home (or just to make dinner time that little more extra).

In The Roundhouse Scalloped Edged Placemat

These placemats just scream adorable. I love the scalloped edge detail which adds a little theatre to any table setting, while the pastel hue is perfect for adding a pretty touch to any soiree. These come in a set of 4, and in different colours too, so I may have to invest in a few for home.

Tash Sefton Superga Organic Cotton Hemp Sneakers

Artist, influencer and style consultant Tash Sefton, has done the cutest collab with Superga. These sneakers are made of organic materials, in a simple and classic design. What I love is the handwritten logo — so fun and chic.

Camilla and Marc Ruth Jacket

I have this jacket in blue denim after falling in love with it recently, so my attention naturally turned to its darker counterpart. The oversized fit of this jacket makes it a great layering piece in winter, but in summer, it has that relaxed silhouette that makes it an effortless piece to add to any look.

What I wore this week

6th May, 2021

The last few days have been busy, and with a few events up my sleeve it meant that I was lucky enough to have the perfect excuse to wear some truly beautiful pieces. I was on hosting duties for Lexus, then a fun American Express event, and a family brunch, so I was able to explore the full spectrum of my wardrobe, from casual to occasion dressing. I love being able to play with different looks, so weeks like these are so great when they pop up. Here’s what I wore this week.

When it came time to host a Lexus event, what better option than a suit… but make it make it sporty. This Burberry look was so much fun to wear. The bomber/blazer hybrid is a a more fashion forward take on a traditional suit jacket, while the pleated tapered pant added a polished element. Also the colour! I love wearing vibrant hues to energise myself for the day ahead.

I wore this black tie look for another Lexus event and carried the blue theme again into my look. This Bianca Spender dress is such a sleek design, with the ruched neckline and cap sleeve making for a bold silhouette. I chose black accent pieces including the most gorgeous tie-up Christian Louboutin heels and a mini Louis Vuitton chain handle bag.

I wore this strapless camel hued dress by Sir the Label to the launch of American Express Delicious Month Out in Sydney and fell in love with its simplicity. The clean lines and the unfussy design makes for an elegant option for event wear. I accessorised this with black tie-up heels again, this time by Aje and a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag and a touch of gold with Manning Cartell earrings.

Having brunch with my family and I decided to pull out this Camilla and Marc midi skirt, which has been the perfect neutral skirt to have in rotation. It just works with so many different pieces. I went for a black top to provide a little contrast, but neutral sandals to continue the silhouette. While my forest green Dior bag added a nice hit of colour to brighten up my ensemble (it’s also quite roomy so I can take everything I need with me).

On my radar: The Camilla and Marc trench, the Alex and Trahanas fruit bowl stand and the Apede Mod mini tote

26th March, 2021

I’m lucky to come across a lot of beautiful things in my job, and as a result I’m always finding new additions for my wish list. This month I’ve been in equal parts house and wardrobe shopping mode. I’ve been looking for new decorative pieces for our home post-reno, just small things that can really help transform our space. While on the fashion front, I’ve been searching for new updates to add to my autumn wardrobe. And in my travels, I’m lucky to have managed to find a few pieces that fit the bill. Here’s what’s currently on my radar.

Apede Mod Poker Face Mini Tote

This cute structured bag is just the thing to add a fresh touch to the more moodier tones I’ll no doubt be wearing throughout autumn and winter. The size is perfect as I’ll be able to carry all my essentials without it being too cumbersome, and I love the chain strap which adds a layer of elevated elegance to the overall design.

Alex & Trahanas Fruit Bowl Stand

This is currently sold out but I’m waiting patiently for new stock to arrive. This ceramic fruit stand is made in Puglia in Italy, and the colours and design remind me of many of my favourite holidays in Italy. I’m planning for it to be a stylish reminder of more Italian soujourns that will hopefully be on the horizon in the not so distant future.

Camilla and Marc Tarantino trench coat

I’ve been looking for a trench to get me through the next few months and I immediately fell in love with the design of this Camilla and Marc number. It’s the perfect length/shape to work back with my winter wardrobe and the colour is just right. I can’t wait to snap this one up as it’s definitely going to fill a gap in my wardrobe.

What I Wore: Light and Bright

16th March, 2021

With autumn upon officially upon us, I’m not complaining that we’re still getting some last minute summer weather making an appearance. This has meant I’ve been able to extend my warm weather wardrobe just that little but further, and I was glad for the excuse to wear this Camilla and Marc dress. This particular design has been one of the standout pieces from the brand’s latest collection, and I’ve already worn it to a racing event, and will continue to do so until it’s time to officially transition into jumpers and coats. I love the simplicity in design of this dress, with the elegant midi length, and feminine finishes such as the puff sleeves and ribbon ties. The deep V-neck also gives it a touch of edge, and helps to avoid it from looking too saccharine. Plus, I’m on board with anything in a crisp white.

Choosing my accessories for this piece, I wanted to go for hues that would contrast well with the colour of the dress so naturally I gravitated towards something black for a monochrome effect. My Bottega Veneta heels have served me well over the last few weeks and have been the perfect event shoe, and fit the brief for what I was looking for. When it came to bag choice, I went for a dusty pink Staud bag. It has that soft, relaxed shape that’s trending right now, and worked well to complement the slightly more structured feel of the dress. As a final finishing touch I went for white sunglasses to add a hint of dramatic flair.

What I wore this week

4th February, 2021

It’s funny when I do these posts as I’ll often look back over the pics and realise I’ve had an ongoing theme throughout the week. I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time but based on the below, I’ve certainly been embracing a neutrals/beige/brown colour palette over the last few days. And with good reason because it’s so easy to mix and match pieces working with these hues. So here’s what I wore during my autumnal meets summer hues week…

This outfit has a bit of a 70s vibe to it and I’m totally embracing it. The chocolate brown halter neck top is polished and perfectly suited for a Sydney summer. While these tailored pants by Viktoria and Woods help brighten up this outfit, and worked back with the sleek white thongs, it’s such an easy, comfortable look.

One of my all-time fave dress labels is Steele as I cannot resist every time they have a new drop. You know when a brand just gets your aesthetic? Theirs is my summer vibe to a tee. This dress is unbelievably comfy and such an easy, don’t-wan’t-to-think outfit option.

I’m planning to wear these jeans to just about everything for the next little while as they’re so versatile and easily paired back with virtually every top I have in my closet. Paired with my Gucci sandals (as an aside, these shoes have been worth every cent as the cost per wear has been so good) and a simple tee, it’s simple and effortless dressing—just the way I like it.

Meet my fave new dress. I’m loving the new drop by Camilla and Marc, and this dress was love at first sight. I can easily wear this doing the school run, out to lunch, or running errands as it’s such a classic design. Plus guess which shoes made another outing this week?

What I Wore: Form and Function

27th January, 2021

I’ve been embracing simplicity a lot this summer—my outfits have tended to be unfussy and uncomplicated. I love easy, effortless dressing most days and this Camilla and Marc look is just that.

I’ve really loved nothing more than a simple tank paired with a great skirt or pants and it’s quickly become one of my go-to outfit combinations. This tank is one that I’ll be able to pair with the majority of my wardrobe which is great for versatility. I love anything that I can repurpose over and over again. While the midi skirt is one that’s got a little more character, it’s definitely the kind of style that I can wear with other tops to steer it in different directions. Plus I like the fact it’s a classic style, but the pocket detail gives it a little edge.

I went with a Dior Book tote in a bottle green to add a touch of colour (and also rather practically, it’s a great size for carrying around on a busy day as it fits everything). When working with neutrals, I always like to inject a bold hue to give it a little extra personality. While a pair of Le Specs tortoiseshell sunglasses and my fave black sandals helped tie the look together.

What I Wore: Modern Noir

15th December, 2020

Summer dresses don’t always have to be of the light and bright variety. This black dress by Camilla and Marc is a departure from the airy styles I’ve been wearing and it’s been a nice change to embrace a summery silhouette that has a sophisticated edge. The cold shoulder detail is perfect for this time of year and makes for a fun, statement neckline. Also in keeping with the aesthetic of the brand, the sleekness is tempered by feminine touches such as the puff sleeves, ruching and cut-outs.

I wanted to keep the entire look quite sophisticated and classic and I couldn’t go past the simplicity of my black and white Chanel slingback shoes. They’re a step up from regular flats with their look and feel, but not too dressy that they’d look out of place being paired with a daytime dress. While I appreciate the timelessness of wearing black, I also didn’t want this outfit to seem flat and heavy so I wanted to add a pop of colour with my other accessories. This structured bag by Burberry features a vibrant orange accent colour which add a fun, energetic touch to this ensemble. A pair of gold hoop earrings and slicked back hair completed this look, which has definitely been a fun alternative to my usual summer colour palette and style.
