What I Wore: Daydream Island

18th June, 2019

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.

I always try and take a tight edit of clothes whenever I’m going away so I like to take pieces that are versatile and can work for day and night. This striped shirt dress by Camilla and Marc was a great option for me as I could wear it casually whilst playing with the girls and dress it up a bit for dinner. I loved the polished feel of it and as it was so lightweight it was perfect for the warmer temperatures up north.

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.

Australian Fashion Week Wrap Up: Day 3

14th May, 2019

What I wore: Camilla & Marc 

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.

Australian Fashion Week: Day 3

14th May, 2019

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.

What I Wore: Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day

16th April, 2019

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.

What I Wore: The New Neutrals

9th April, 2019

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.

What I Wore: Palace of Versailles

30th March, 2019

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.

What I Wore: CITY LIMITS

19th March, 2019

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.

What I Wore: Textural Play

30th October, 2018

Whenever I head to Melbourne I always make sure to pack a few warm weather options as I never know what the weather will be like. This new Miranda Dunn faux fur coat is one such thing. It’s super cosy and is made of the softest fur — it feels like I’ve just popped out with my favourite blanket when I’m wearing it. I’ve also found it easy to pair back with myriad looks in my closet, but my current fave is wearing it with jeans and a crisp white tee. It’s casual yet elegant and is a great go-to for when I’m looking for comfort and want to maintain an element of polish.

I didn’t want any of my other accessories competing with the fur coat, but I did want to add a little colour for interest so opted for my Goyard tote. The burgundy shade works easily with cream coat and as a bonus it’s also super roomy, so it’s great for carrying on days when I’m out and about and need to take everything from my laptop to my kids’ essentials. As for my shoes, being comfortable is paramount so I couldn’t think of a better option than my Dior slingback flats. They’re sophisticated and sleek, but are also ideal for long days where a flat is a must. Paired with classic Celine frames, this look is the ideal runaround outfit with a classic finishing touches.

What I Wore: Smart Casual

16th October, 2018

Whenever I see the dress code smart casual it always gives me cause for pause as I’m trying to rack my brain of what I have in my wardrobe that fits the bill. Ultimately I think it’s all about working off duty style whilst still maintaining an element of polish. It’s about marrying the best of both worlds and merging casual pieces with elevated staples.

This Carla Zampatti jacket is one such piece that is right at home when worn back with dressy separates, but I can still pair it with denim and have it look cohesive. One of my favourite combinations is jeans and a white tee, which can be super casual but when paired with a sophisticated jacket it lifts the look into one that’s polished without being too fussy. Jeans have definitely become more accepted for events and relaxed workplaces, and when worked back with classic pieces it can easily be your go-to ensemble for those times you need to dress smart casual.

Great flats are essential for smart casual dressing which is why I am really loving my new Dior flats. They’re a classic shape, incorporate sleek details and as a bonus are super comfortable to be in all day. As for my accessories, a statement bag, with structure and extra finishes such as a chain strap or embellishments is the ideal option for elevating a look without being too overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your eyewear. These coloured Le Specs sunglasses add a modern touch, without compromising the overall vibe of my outfit.

What I Wore: Date with Kate with Sabrina Carpenter

18th September, 2018

Date with Kates are always fun and a great excuse to pull out a new outfit. For my recent Date with Kate with Sabrina Carpenter, I wanted to go for something feminine and polished for our meeting at Sydney’s Hacienda. One look I’m really loving at the moment is layering slip dresses over a crisp white tee. I think this 90s inspired look is fresh and so easy to pull together. I wanted to add a formal element to the look so I opted to wear my Balmain blazer over the top.

I wanted to wear heels with this outfit but thought a stiletto would be too much so instead decided to pair it with my Balenciaga sock boots. The silhouette of the shoe is fitted and streamlined enough that it doesn’t look too bulky against the flowy nature of the dress, however it grounds the look at the same time.

As far as accessories go I wanted simple and classic so I decided that my Dior bag which with its structured shape and gold chain strap looks was the perfect addition the look. I’m still really into the small sunglasses trend and this pair by Poppy Lissiman is certainly getting quite the workout of late. I like the fact it manages to look both unfussy and dramatic all at the same time.
