What I wore this week

7th September, 2023

It’s another week of transeasonal dressing in Sydney and while I’m loving the warmer temperatures later in the day, there’s still a little bit of a chill in the air in the morning which I have to take into account. However, since it’s warmed up a lot I have taken the opportunity though to do a soft launch of a few spring/summer looks I’m planning, and I’m already forecasting I’ll be wearing them a lot through spring. There’s just so much good fashion out there right now! Here’s what I wore this week.

Vests are really becoming a thing and I’m all for it. I like that it gives a pair of jeans a more elevated feel, and it’s so easy to work it back with other looks. Also PSA: if you’re looking for a great denim brand, I highly recommend Slvrlake. I have several pairs now and they’re all a great cut and fit in all the right places. I topped off this look with some Chanel to add some contrast pieces.

One of my fave styling tricks is when I want to dress super casual ie jeans and sneakers, I pop on a blazer on top and all of a sudden it feels put together. This Camilla and Marc blazer is just the right fit, it’s roomy enough to feel a little more relaxed yet there’s still enough structure to it when I want it to look dressy.

One of my favourite Aussie brands is Viktoria and Woods because their pieces always manage to look on trend but are always underpinned by a polished vibe. This pairing looks really cute worn together, but I’ve already bookmarked them both for spring/summer outfits I’ve got planned. For example how great would the top look with a pair of wide leg pants? They’re both a definite winner.

I’ve really been loving the collab between my friend Elliot and Bayse – I’ve worn these jeans previously with a white tank, but it goes equally as well with this knit top. It’s the perfect shade of grey and it works great against the indigo colour of the jeans. I threw on a pair of shearling lined slides as they make for the perfect transeasonal shoe when the weather is still going from hot to cold during the day.

Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week

22nd June, 2023

The temperatures have well and truly dipped in Sydney so it has given me the perfect reason to bring out a few of my favourite winter staples. There’s nothing I love more than layering cosy separates, and this season I’ve got some very wearable pieces that are on trend, but also do the job of keeping my very snug and warm when I’m out and about. That said, there have also been some events on the cards, so I’ve had the opportunity to get frocked up and wear some great dresses. Here’s what I wore this week.

This teddy coat by Aje is honestly the next best thing to roaming the streets with a blanket wrapped around me. It’s so cosy and warm! I love that it’s a long length style too, which ticks the on trend box, but also manages to insulate me from the chilly weather. Plus it gives great texture and the colour is so easy to pair back with multiple outfits. I popped on a pretty simple outfit underneath – a grey jumper and jeans, but the coat really adds a little extra oomph. These D.O.F sneakers are a few years’ old but they have managed to remain current in their style and silhouette which is always a tick for me.

Where would I be without Aje for their never ending supply of great dresses? This particular midi dress is made from a thick ribbed fabric which I found to maintain a really flattering shape, while the frills add a little extra to a simple and sleek design. It’s what I’d imagine an LBD inspired by the dancing senorita emoji would look like!

I’ve got a lot of preppy pieces from Ralph Lauren so this dress is a bit of a departure from that. However, how great is it? Love the navy as a great alternative to a traditional black dress, while the deep V-neck and cut outs add a glam, contemporary touch to such a simple silhouette. Also, this croissant shaped bag feels very on trend right now so it definitely had to accompany me.

Blazers are getting quite the workout in my outfit rotations these days. This oatmeal/grey blazer is a little oversized which feels very modern in its silhouette. It’s such an easy colour to work back with everything and I like that it makes the outfit feel a little less formal compared to a jacket in a darker colour. I popped this blazer on over a simple tank, and worked it back with white straight leg jeans which are my new favourite thing. It’s such a great cut and so versatile. My D.O.F sneakers made another appearance, while my green Dior Book bag added a touch of colour.

School holidays has me rocking more casual looks this week and it’s been great to be able to explore that side of my wardrobe a little more. Looking after two little girls, it’s mostly been about comfort interspersed with the occasional dressy look. That said, one pattern does seem to be emerging… a matching set can’t be beat. Whether it’s a shirt and shorts combination, a skirt and button down, or a crop and skirt, a co-ordinating set is definitely a great shortcut to looking polished without much effort. So, here are a few of my faves…

Brights are definitely on trend this season and this orange Kinney has been a tried and tested mood booster. A vibrant hue is always a great option for summer, plus it makes a statement. My white Gucci slides added a neutral touch and allowed the colour to shine.

I love this skirt and crop set by Seed Heritage. It’s so beautifully feminine, but the neutral hue helps to ground it and keeps it from looking too saccharine. This is a great polished look for an event. Also, each works well as separates.

Denim is always a failsafe option no matter the occasion. This shirt and shorts set is a great casual go-to and it’s perfect for wearing as separates too. These comfy Camilla and Marc slides have been a fun addition to my wardrobe and add a statement feature to a simple look. I went with a roomy Dior tote on this day, which served the practical purpose of holding all my essentials, but also added a statement pop of colour.

Oroton’s ready-to-wear range is seriously on point this season, with lots of fun pieces to embrace. This colourful printed set is the perfect resortwear look, and if you’re off on holiday, definitely consider it. I also went with a white Oroton mini bag and white sandals to add an extra touch of freshness to this ensemble.

What I wore this week

20th October, 2022

This week, I’ve been flying the flag for a range of Aussie brands. There’s something about how we do fashion in this country that always brings about fresh designs and an aesthetic that speaks to how many of us like to dress — easy and effortless. I’ve also been able to do a few looks that have run the spectrum from preppy and chic to evening ready which I always really like as I’m able to play dress up in so many different ways. Here’s what I wore this week.

You often see houndstooth in monochrome so I loved that this dress by Aussie brand Leo Lin went in the opposite direction. The vibrant green really gives this preppy style a little extra personality. Whenever I embrace patterns I tend to keep everything pared back so a pair of black and white Dior slingbacks and simple headband seemed the right finishing touches.

I’ve always been a fan of beige/camel tones and find it works really well when layered together. It was a cool day in Sydney so these trousers layered with a sweater and coat was the perfect look for the day ahead. There’s also something quite pulled together about layering different hues and is one of my fave ways to elevate existing pieces in my wardrobe.

Ready for a night out in this elegant long sleeve Gul. Hurgel dress. I love playing with different textures and find you can’t go wrong with black velvet — it’s always a great go-to for evening wear. To complement the diamante accents on the dress I went for a silver slouchy Jimmy Choo evening bag, and a pair of simple strappy slides by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Who else loves shirt dresses? I can’t resist them as they’re such an easy and effortless way to pull together a look. This piece is by Aussie brand, Onte and the understated silhouette, punctuated by gold buttons really ticks all the boxes. It’s an easy piece to throw on for a casual day or if I’ve got meetings or I’m doing the school run, plus it’s comfy too. Also a big fan of the neutral colour — you can’t ever go wrong with a hue that can be worn in myriad ways.

What I Wore: Melbourne Cup Carnival launch 2022

20th September, 2022

Today, I’m throwing back to this sunny look that I wore to the Melbourne Cup Carnival launch earlier in the month because it was such a fun one to wear. And yes, spring racing is back! I wanted to wear something bright and playful to such an event and this yellow Camilla and Marc dress definitely delivered. I think you can always make an impact simply by dialling up the saturation and embracing colour and this dress in all it’s golden goodness was the perfect way to welcome one of my favourite times of year. While it’s a simple silhouette, I loved that it had some wow factor not only from the colour but also from the lacing on the side and the cut-out feature.

I mostly wanted the colour of the dress to do all the talking so when it came to accessorising I stuck with black to really make the yellow pop. My failsafe Bottega Veneta heels once again proved their worth in cost per wear terms as I have been able to get so much use out of them. They were such a great buy. Plus they’re easily worked back with so many pieces. I then opted for a straw hat by one of my go-to milliners, Nerida Winter and a simple Dior bag to cap off my ensemble. Making a splash with colour always makes for great event attire.

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.

Cosying up in some of my favourite winter pieces this week has been fun as I’ve been able to unearth a few faves from last season and pair them with some new additions to my closet. But, the weather in Sydney this week has been mild enough that I’ve been able to wear a few summery pieces, and give them another outing. Here’s what I wore this week.

I wore this with a blazer last week but decided to keep it a little more casual so I switched out the jacket for a knit. It works with the jumper draped over my shoulder for when the weather is still a bit warmer during the day, and then I can easily just pop it on if temperatures drop. It’s a great trans-seasonal option.

This look is a riot of colour and I love it! It’s a great mood booster and the print is so fun and striking. It’s a set which means it’s such an easy outfit option because I don’t have to fuss around with pairing tops and bottoms. I simply added a pair of Gucci sandals to finish it off. And I can always rely on my trusty Loewe bag to help my carry all my essentials around.

I can’t emphasise enough how comfortable this Staud look is. It makes for a great travelling outfit as it’s polished, but it’s also a great go-to for busy days where you don’t have much time to be fussing around with an outfit. I went for an all black colour palette and added a pop of colour with my emerald green Dior bag.

All my fave jeans are coming back into rotation, including this black pair from Aje. They’re a great cut and are high waisted, which I really like. A sweater for unpredictable temperature changes, and a roomy tote make this a great look for when I’ve got a busy schedule to contend with.

What I Wore: Derby Day

10th April, 2021

Derby Day is always one of my favourite race day dress codes as black and white is always such a chic colour palette to work with. This year I wanted to combine the two hues, and this Rachel Gilbert dress was the perfect look for the occasion. It has a bit of a retro 60s vibe, which I love. The oversized bow and the strapless silhouette has a slightly coquettish feel to it, while the mini length combined with sheer stockings added an element of playfulness to the overall look.

A great headpiece is always a must and this stunning Dior headband with veil was the perfect addition to this look. The rest of my look incorporated monochromatic touches that had a touch of drama to them. The jewelled Miu Miu handbag, was the perfect diminutive size to complement the dress, and I also loved its feminine look. While I once again turned to Dior for my shoes. The ideal black and white heels to help tie this look together nicely.

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: Dior Sydney event

12th September, 2020

It’s me! At an event! It’s been awhile so it was nice to be out and about at a a function. Given we’ve just welcomed spring I wanted to wear a lighter, fresher look so this crisp white dress by Toni Maticevski was the ideal option. The mini style combined with the oversized statement ruffles was just the right amalgamation of feminine silhouette with playful touches. Also I’m a fan of a little white dress for event dressing as it evokes such an elegant feel.

Handy tip: barely there clear heels are great for elongating the frame. These Seed mules do just that. The transparent strap creates the illusion of length which earns major ticks. Plus they’re such a comfy shoe so they’re great for being out and about. To finish off this look, it just had to be Dior. I went for a ladylike blush pink Dior top handle bag, which added a subtle hit of colour. Plus the soft hue is just the right shade to not disrupt the clean lines of the rest of my ensemble. And who can resist such a pretty shade of pink?
