For reporting duties with 7 Racing I wanted something that was vibrant and feminine and couldn’t look past this beautiful cerise Camilla and Marc mini dress. The rich colour gives the frock some drama, whilst the fitted silhouette complemented by the oversized balloon sleeves, was a great contrast in proportions. Also I’m always a fan of anything with a dramatic detail and I love the open back feature of this dress and the lace panelling on the side.
With volume at play, I knew my accessories needed to be quite streamlined. I opted for minimalist black heels which subtly complemented my dress without overwhelming it. I then added a Nerida Winter headpiece—something sleek and understated whilst my Fendi top handle bag was the perfect little accessory to add a dainty touch to my entire look.
I’ve been after a skirt suit that’s sharp but not too dressy to take me through spring. I knew I wanted it to be the ideal go-to look for everything from a work meeting to an event so I was quite particular about the colour and shape. This neutral set by Camilla and Marc definitely fits the brief. The double breasted jacket with contrasting buttons is just the right vibe to be versatile whilst pairing it back with a skirt gives it a feminine feel.
Given the suit is quite pared back I decided to dial up the boldness of my accessories. I knew I wanted a statement bag with this ensemble so this logo Fendi tote was the ideal option. It’s just the right size to take me through the day and punchy enough with the classic Fendi Fs. I also like the fact it looks professional but still has a fashion forward feel.
When it comes to my shoes I decided on strappy Giuseppe Zanotti sandals with a crystal heel. The interesting heel really gives it a modern and glam touch. Whilst the final finishing touch was a pair of skinny Poppy Lissiman sunglasses. I found the thin profile really adds a contemporary feel to an otherwise classic look.
Without a doubt one of my favourite go-to designers is Camilla and Marc. They’re usually top of mind if I have an event to attend or I simply want some beautiful wardrobe updates that are on trend but maintain an overall classic feel. The brand’s aesthetic is always about structured silhouettes and all with elevated finishing touches, which is something that slots in really well into my style repertoire. I always feel really confident and polished whenever I’m wearing something from the label which is why I keep coming back to it. If you’re on the look out for some new pieces that will instantly life any existing pieces you own, look no further than these 10 things.
Camilla and Marc know how to do a standout dress and this is one of them. Love the shape and the print is striking, but versatile enough that it could easily be worked back with a blazer for a polished look.
A great knit features heavily in so many winter looks that it’s worth investing in a few bold colours to really lift a look. This apple red number is all kinds of perfect for dressing up a midi skirt or trusty denim.
Escaping from the cold Sydney weather to go on a family holiday to Daydream Island the past week enabled me to shed my winter woolies (even if it was just a few days) for easy breezy resort wear dressing, which I’ve always got a soft spot for.
Slides are always my number one footwear choice whenever I’m going somewhere warm as they’re comfortable and chic and keep me cool all at the same time. I’ve been wanting to wear these Dior slides for ever so long and was glad to finally have the chance to do so.
Whilst straw bags are still going strong throughout winter they’re especially perfect for anywhere tropical so this Sparrows Weave top handle bag felt right at home around the resort. Topped off with white Emma Mulholland sunglasses, I was ready for whatever the day had in store.
What inspired my look today: I wanted to take things more masculine today with a power suit. Keeping it super simple and sleek in khaki tones.
Where I went: All over Sydney today! Jardan in Paddington for Hansen and Gretel and Carriageworks for Alice McCALL. Bondi Beach for Bondi Born, then off to Christopher Esber at Cement Fondu in Paddington, Michael LoSordo at Reign at the QVB and then Dion Lee in Barangaroo.
Fave show: Loving the vintage resort vibes from Hansen with candy pinks, and soft pastels to start the day.
Fave trend: Then feather, sparkles and sheer glamour at Alice McCALL. Sleek and sophisticated at Bondi Born with clean lines, simple shapes and statement features.
Favourite show: Bondi Born. Such a beautiful setting at Totti’s restaurant – an Italian feast with a show will always get my vote!
Pretty as a picture: I had a great time snapping away with my Huawei p30 today especially the lunch spread at Totti’s—delicious food in a beautiful setting. I felt like we were in the Mediterranean.
Everyone was wearing: Colour blocking, beaded bags and strappy sandals.
What I ate: A beautiful Italian lunch at Totti’s.
Highlight of the day: Dinner with my dear friend Dion Lee. His collection is gorgeous.

For a big day of shows I wanted to embrace a strong look and what better option than a great suit. I was attending the Camilla and Marc show today so a khaki skirt suit from their latest collection was ideal for the day ahead. The classic Camilla and Marc blazer silhouette is always spot on and has such a flattering fit and paired with a midi skirt, it is feminine, sleek and edgy all rolled into one. Plus the colour is a little different from your average suit so it really elevated the entire look.
As the skirt is already a statement-making piece in itself I wanted everything else to be quite minimalist. So I opted for a nude sandal with clear straps — simple yet on trend and a great accent piece to the suit. And after a few hectic days I definitely couldn’t leave the house without sunglasses. These black futuristic frames by Prada worked well with my favourite Dior bag worn as a clutch.
Having one of my all time favourite designers make me a custom piece to wear to the Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day was such a privilege. I’m a huge fan of Camilla and Marc and have been for a long time so to get to wear something that was especially made for me was so exciting.
I’ve always loved the look and feel of Camilla and Marc’s blazers so I decided on having a cream tweed suit made. The double breasted jacket and cropped trousers evoked a classic feel, whilst the tweed added a cool weather vibe that was ideal for an autumn racing event. To give the suit some added shape, I decided to belt it with a wide burgundy waist belt to cinch it in and also add a statement piece to my outfit.
As far as my accessories went I decided on burgundy heels to match the colour of the belt and a padded cream headband, which I think worked well with my brand new, shorter hairstyle.
This suit is without a doubt one of my favourite new additions to my wardrobe. I’m already looking forward to the next time I’m able to give it another outing. I’m sure it won’t be long.
I favour neutrals a lot in my wardrobe because they’re so wearable and versatile. They’re the building blocks for many a look. That said, I’m growing to see them as a fashion powerhouse on their own. Working neutrals together can often equate to a chic ensemble that still packs a sartorial punchiness that can’t be ignored. This Camilla and Marc look has become a favourite because of just that. The cream top and beige skirt, work together to lift one another but separately they can also blend seamlessly into an outfit. This season shades such as beige and caramel will be huge so no doubt I’ll be welcoming a lot more pieces like this in my wardrobe.
I think wearing neutrals does require dialling it up a little in the accessories department. This vibrant orange Espie Roche top handle bag is the perfect pop of colour to lift this look and add a fun element. Meanwhile round frame Chloe sunglasses add a playful vibe and simple Gucci slides are a sophisticated (and comfy!) footwear choice.
I can see this look taking me to so many occasions from work, to a meeting to a catch up with friends so no doubt it’s going to get quite the workout in the weeks to come.

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Huawei P30 global launch in Paris. The three day event was filled with exciting activities and one of the standouts for me was visiting the Palace of Versailles. I haven’t been there since I was a child so it was amazing to go back and see it again.
It’s spring time in Paris so when the sun is shining the weather can be warm so I opted for this Camilla and Marc mini dress. However the mornings and afternoons are quite cool so I teamed it with my Stuart Weitzman suede over-the-knee boots and my DVF red faux fur coat—both great layering pieces. I wanted to add extra shape to this look so I cinched it in with my black Isabel Marant belt. To accentuate the pink florals in the print on my dress so I decided on taking my pink Bulgari bag with body strap out for the day. It’s the perfect style of bag when you’re on the go traveling and sightseeing as it keeps your hands free and takes out the hassle of having to carry a bag around.
I’m always drawn to monochrome and this Camilla and Marc dress is no exception. The strong shoulder in the dress gives it a girl boss vibe while the long sheer sleeves that finish with slightly flared cuffs and a statement split give it a feminine touch. The black and white check is quite subtle so you can play it up with a bold accessories or keep it more conservative with neutral tones. I wore this look for a day of meetings in the city so I opted to stay within the black natural tones with my Aquazzura pump heels and Prada bucket bag. I added a bit of a modern twist with my Poppy Lissiman sunglasses.
