What I wore this week

19th October, 2023

The weather was a bit up and down this week so I had to pull out some wintery pieces that I thought had gone into hibernation for good. Such is the unpredictability when it comes to the weather at this time of year! I had a few meetings and some running around to do so I had a few outfits that were a little dressy, but mostly it was about comfort. A few of my new season favourites featured heavily in my outfit rotation, which is great as I love being able to get maximum wear out of everything. Here’s what I wore this week.

I needed something nice and toasty this week and this loungewear set by Joslin is heaven. It’s super soft so it’s perfect for spending the day in at home, but it’s elevated enough that I can wear it when I’m heading out. Love the textured finish on both the jumper and pants. I finished it off with my shearling Camilla and Marc slides, which are such a great transeasonal shoe.

When something is in rotation every week you know it’s a worthwhile wardrobe addition. These Anna Quan tailored pants work back with so many different tops in my closet, and are a bit of a style chameleon. I can easily dress them up or down. I’ve aslo been wearing this off-the-shoulder Viktoria and Woods top almost weekly. I’ve always been a fan of an off-the-shoulder neckline and this top sits well and doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall down, which is often a problem with other similar styles. Thumbs up!

My workout looks are almost always in muted tones, and black features quite heavily in the mix. This is a great Lorna Jane set as it sits well, offers support where it needs to and it’s quite breathable.

Suiting is always a fave of mine, but I love this as an option for warmer weather. It has all the polish of a suit, but without sleeves, the blazer feels a little more fashion forward (and more comfortable for hotter days). I went with some beige accessories, including my Fendi Peekaboo bag and minimalist Scanlan Theodore heels.

All the looks I wore on my trip to the Gold Coast

16th October, 2023

As part of a partnership with QANTAS, I was lucky enough to spend a few nights on the sunny Gold Coast recently. Even better was the fact I was able to be joined by some friends during the trip. We explored a lot of the area, checking out some great dining spots, and also indulging in some relaxation by the pool and at the spa. It was a great way to unwind after the craziness of the school holidays! Whenever I’m on a trip, I enjoy planning my wardrobe as much as I do my activities as I find it’s all part of the novelty of being away. So, here’s what I packed with me for a few days in Queensland.

This is a great LBD from Scanlan Theodore. It’s such a simple, sleek design that can be dressed up or down and can easily be transformed or reworked according to the occasion. The strapless neckline and subtle flare give it a glam feel, and it’s so pared back that I could go all out with my shoes. Mach & Mach are known for their embellished, elaborate designs, and this pair certainly brings all the sparkle.

Yes, I am a big fan of quite a few things in Scanlan Theodore’s latest collection because this dress is also new addition to my wardrobe. For a boat day, I wanted something comfy yet classic and this taupe maxi with its flared skirt and belted waist definitely fit the brief. I finished this look off with some of my fave necklaces and cat-eye sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman.

For a day at the spa/pool, I threw on this cover up by Sir. It’s a great chocolate brown colour and the mesh fabric works beautifully with a high waisted style bikini. I glammed it up with a mini bamboo handle bag by Gucci and my trusty white Gucci slides.

There’s something about an off-the-shoulder neckline that I can never resist. I love the knotted straps on this maxi, and they drape at just the right spot – not annoying like some off-the-shoulder styles. I went with a pop of colour via my amber sunglasses to help lift the chocolate brown hue.

I’m a big believer that when you find a great style that works for you, get it in another colour. Hence, this Scanlan Theodore dress, which is a similar silhouette as my black dress, but in a vibrant yellow. It’s a great hue for summer and works well against a pair of metallic sandals.

What I wore: Urban Jungle

30th August, 2023

If I had to pick a weekly “uniform” that works time after time it has to be jeans and a white shirt. I wear this combination so regularly as it’s easy, looks effortless and is usually something I already have on hand at all times. I’m always happy to welcome any iteration of denim and a white shirt combination into my wardrobe so I was thrilled to receive this tank and jeans from my friend, stylist Elliot Garnaut’s recent collaboration with the brand Bayse. The jeans are a great straight leg style, that’s just a touch baggy which gives it a bid of edge. Also, I love the fact it’s a dark indigo wash — most of my jeans are usually a lighter blue/white/black so this is a great new addition to fill that gap. A tank is something I always like to have in my closet as it’s great to wear on its own or layer with other pieces.

I dressed up this outfit with a pair of Bottega Veneta heels which just goes to show that you can do a tank and denim and still look put together. I opted for my beige Fendi Peekaboo bag to add a touch of polish. It’s a great shape as it’s structured enough to look dressy but the leather is relaxed and soft enough so it doesn’t feel too done. A smattering of gold accessories and a pair of sunnies and this uniform was good to go.

What I Wore: Peekaboo

29th June, 2023

It’s never lost on me how lucky I am to be gifted some beautiful things in the course of my job, and this gorgeous Fendi bag is definitely high on that list. The Fendi Peekaboo bag is a classic style for the brand and no wonder as it’s the kind of silhouette that’s made to have longevity. It’s a structured shape yet with soft lines, it straddles the line between casual and dressy. I also love a bag that does double duty with short and long straps, as I can easily use it as a top handle bag, or go handsfree wearing it crossbody style. It’s one of the things I always look for when it comes to bags, as it increases its versatility.

So, what to wear with this bag? This slinky silk slip dress also by Fendi was made for a balmy summer day. The sun was shining in London and this dress seemed the perfect choice for enjoying the day. There’s beautiful movement to this dress and it drapes in a really flattering way (sometimes silk can be very unforgiving!). Also, I crossed the long straps to create more of a statement feature at the back. The draped feature at the front also adds an element of interest, as it ties at the waist and adds another layer to the silhouette of the dress.

I decided to just carry the Fendi theme throughout and went with a pair of metallic wedge heels, also by the brand. I love the ‘F’ heel and and the criscrossing metallic straps. This shoe’s design is a little more fashion forward which makes it the ideal statement piece to work back with an event outfit. Also being a wedge, it’s a comfortable shoe to walk around in earning it bonus points from me.

What I Wore: Australian Fashion Week 2023 Day 1

15th May, 2023

It’s the first day of Fashion Week today so I wanted to make a splash with my outfit choice and go for something bold. It’s of course the perfect time to embrace the numerous talented Australian designers out there, and today was all about this Alemais dress for me. I throughly loved the way this dress had a fluidity to it that gave it some beautiful movement. While the stunning brocade fabric added some drama and elegance. And let’s not forget about the bell sleeves! Such gorgeous draping really added some theatre to the way this dress moved, while the contrasting yellow fringing added a gorgeous finishing flourish.

So, how to accessorise a dress that’s already quite dramatic and theatrical? I wanted a shoe with an interesting silhouette and these Fendi shoes have been a longtime fave of mine. I love the wedge style ‘F’ heel and the metallic straps. I opted for a classic mini Jackie bag from Gucci to pair with this dress as it’s diminutive size and simple monogram print would complement rather than compete with the dress. Lastly, Fashion Week isn’t possible without a great pair of sunnies on hand at all times, and this caramel Bec & Bridge pair from their collaboration with Pared really fit the brief.

What I Wore: 2023 Golden Slipper

28th March, 2023

Hosting duties for 7Racing offer the perfect excuse to embrace a new look, and often it’s a case of the more dramatic the better. Case in point: this Fendi look from the recent Golden Slipper event in Sydney. Suiting is definitely something that features heavily in my sartorial wheelhouse, so it was fun to take it to the next level with this stunning suit by Fendi. I’ve always found a suit to be such a strong option for any event, but in this instance, this jacket was designed to be front and centre. The contrasting panels, the obi style waist, and a train really made this jacket bring the drama and more. I loved the fact however, that the pants tempered the look and gave it a bit of structure when contrasted against the theatre of the jacket.

Accessories are always key, and in this instance I wanted to incorporate something that would pop against the suit without being too over the top. The addition of height with the black Valentino platforms was perfect as it meant the suit pants sat at just the perfect length, plus it added a trend element to this look. The clean lines of the Bulgari bag (which FYI is also customisable) make an elegant addition to this ensemble, but the sunshine yellow makes it pop simultaneously. I love when an accessory works to add an element of interest, and it’s often something I take into serious consideration whenever I’m pulling a look together. I didn’t really want to add an overly fussy headpiece to this look, preferring to keep things quite understated, so a simple black headband helped me to add some headwear but not distract from the central element of this look: this suiting moment.

What I wore this week

25th August, 2022

We’ve had some really beautiful days in Sydney of late so I’ve been able to break out some fun pieces designed for warm weather. I’m really loving the little bursts of sunny days as it’s a great preview of spring — can’t wait to wear more of that part of my wardrobe. I’ve embraced some classic staples this week and some failsafe combinations, but it has also been fun to wear some statement looks featuring bold colours. Here’s what I wore this week.

Jeans and a white shirt is one of those combinations I don’t have to think about because it’s guaranteed to work every time. These jeans have been such a great addition to my wardrobe as I’ve been able to style them in so many different ways and they’re a great wash to work back with various colours. This shirt is from this year’s Witchery white shirt campaign and is the ideal fit to tuck into jeans, plus I love the pocket feature. Paired with statement earrings, it adds a touch of glam to a daytime look.

Off to an event with this all blue look. Love layering the one colour as it can be so impactful when paired together. This cobalt blue hue is so striking and great for an evening event. This blouse worn separately is the ideal piece to add a polished splash of colour to an outfit, while the pants are a ski pant design which makes them ultra comfortable. I added a bit of contrasting colour with the yellow Fendi bag and my go-to Bottega heels.

Felt like wearing some colour to an event and what better hue to embrace than sunshine yellow? This column dress by Camilla and Marc features soft, splashes of orange-y yellow so it’s perfect for spring-like weather. I also love the sleek silhouette plus paired with nude heels it achieves an elongated effect.

The cutest of tops, this Maggie Marilyn number is a real statement piece. The puff sleeves offer a striking feature and the ruching adds a flattering touch. I’ve always loved the contrasting effect of pink and white and these wide leg pants are not only a great example of a wardrobe piece that embraces understated glam, but it’s a great piece to allow the top to pop. I discovered the perfect pink shoe with these Gucci pumps so of course I had to pair them with this look.

What I wore this week: Events looks

28th July, 2022

It was while I was scrolling through my phone that I ended up taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting some of my fave events looks of late. From parties to race days and launches, I’m so fortunate to be able to attend so many great events throughout the year and as a result it gives me the opportunity to frock up and embrace some pretty amazing looks. It’s hard to narrow it down to faves, but these are a few that I’ve worn and loved.

I wore this look to a Dior event and the Love Shack Fancy dress was truly out of this world good. The gold star motif really dialled up the glam but offered a playful edge. Long sleeve dresses are always so classically elegant, but offset by the cut-outs and the thigh high split, the dress evoked just the right balance of sexy. I went for a simple pair of Bottega Veneta heels and in a nod to the event’s host, a Dior clutch.

Designer crossover collabs have become quite the thing and one of my favourite results was this Fendace collection. A partnership between Fendi and Versace, the result was this beyond sleek evening look, with safety pin detail in a nod to Versace’s infamous safety pin dress worn by Liz Hurley in the 90s. When wearing such a knockout style, I knew accessories needed to be kept to a minimum and as unfussy as possible. So, I opted for a pair of black Louboutin pumps and a gold Fendi clutch.

I was attending the launch of Phantom of the Opera on Sydney Harbour and always enjoy glamming up for the theatre. I went with this chocolate Bec and Bridge slip dress. The silhouette and neckline was simple and understated but with a statement detail in the form of the thigh high split, it was definitely event-ready. I didn’t want to take away from the dress so I went for ultra pared back black Jimmy Choo heels and a pair of gold Aje drop earrings to tie it all together.

In racing mode with this look that I wore to the Crown VRC launch. I’m loving suiting as an events look, and am always into experimenting with different cuts and colours. This Louis Vuitton double breasted suit had ample amounts of polish, but the details gave it some edge. The contrasting pinstripe down the pant legs and the contrast of the mohair trimmed lapel on the double breasted jacket made this look feel quite modern and on trend. And what better way to finish off with footwear than with a pair of black LV heels?

Australian Fashion Week 2022: Day 2

10th May, 2022

I like to mix it up on each day of Fashion Week and given I wore a suit yesterday, I went the opposite direction today and opted for a fun, feminine look. I went for stripes on stripes with this Altuzarra ensemble. Clashing prints is always fun, but there’s always something interesting about working essentially the same pattern but with a slightly different take on it. The horizontal stripes on top work well against the busyness at the bottom, with the multicoloured stripes almost giving an illusion effect. There’s also a flirty thigh high split to balance the midi length hem. Given it was quite chilly, I needed a jacket to get me through the day and this Emporio Armani dark denim blazer was the perfect complementary piece to the rest of my outfit. It’s got a classic, polished structure but the denim gives it a fashion forward feel, plus it works great against all that colour.

I fell hard for today’s Fendi bag. The crescent shape is fun, but what I liked is the oversized Fendi embellishment underneath. It’s logomania but done in a really subtle way. I also liked the pop of pastel pink to work against the bolder hues of the skirt. I went for sky high heels with this strappy pair by Billini, which incidentally I also have in nude and really rate. It’s the perfect heel to work against so many different looks. The second busy day of Fashion Week definitely required great sunglasses and this Bottega Veneta pair with its exaggerated cat eye silhouette was the perfect final touch.

What I wore this week

24th March, 2022

Presenting… another week in my wardrobe. I got to play dress ups with some truly incredible frocks this week, interspersed with my fave way to dress: comfortably with a healthy dose of polish. I rediscovered some favourite outfit combinations, worked a few new pieces into the mix and elevated them all with an injection of bold accessories. I love compiling this diary because I always inevitably find myself filled with ideas for other looks—hope it does the same for you!

Love a collab that’s full of standout pieces and this Ellery x Witchery pairing is definitely that. This top and pants combination in the camel hue feels so modern and on trend, plus I like the fact both pieces can be worn separately but together they kinda have a jumpsuit vibe! I paired this look with black Bottega Veneta heels and a Chanel backpack for a polished feel and small frame Poppy Lissiman sunglasses to cap it off.

Louis Vuitton definitely delivers the goods with this LWD. The simple silhouette and drop waist, the A-line skirt and the martingale feature on the skirt combined, give this dress I wore while on reporting duties at the races an ultra elegant feel. I went for a few bolder pieces to accessorise, including this gold Fendi clutch which added a pop of colour and sky high Jimmy Choo platform heels.

I have this outfit formula bookmarked under eternal classics. You can’t go wrong with a trench paired with denim. This Marks and Spencer trench is the perfect hue, cut and style to pair back with multiple looks, while these Levi’s jeans, which I’ve had for a few years prove once again how worthy a purchase they are–they just go with everything. I opted for a few more classic pieces to accessorise with including black Tod’s loafers, a Louis Vuitton Speedy and black sunglasses.

I love layering neutrals for a smart casual look. This cream jumper and wide leg, lightweight Ena Pelly pants are just the thing for transseasonal weather. I went for white thongs to tie into the neutral effect, while my black Prada bag added a utilitarian touch and is a great size for all my essentials.

I attended a launch for jewellery brand, Fred and it required a killer look. Who else to turn to but Aje who delivered a dreamy party dress that’s got a beautiful textural effect. The pleats in this dress are gorgeous. I wanted the dress to do all the talking so I went for a pair of heels with the sleekest of silhouettes, and added a little sparkle in the form of some standout jewellery.
