Sometimes you just have to have a fun colour moment and this great skirt suit by Bec & Bridge is definitely one to do it. The mint shade is great for this time of year where everything is about light and breezy silhouettes and fabrics, and dabbling in beautiful bright hues, particularly soft pastels. I also love the textured effect of both the longline blazer and skirt which gives it just the right relaxed feel for the season. While I opted for a long sleeved ribbed top, you could easily pair this with a tee or a cami and instantly dress it up or down.
While I love the overall laidback feel of the suit, I wanted to elevate the look with my accessories. My Prada leather shoulder bag is both dressy but unfussy enough that it doesn’t make my look feel too “done” and is the perfect size for carrying everything I need for the day. I also opted for minimalist Giuseppe Zanotti heels which with its crystal heel feels a little more glam. Topped with playful pink Le Specs shades, I’m ready to tackle the day ahead.
It was exciting times this week as I was invited to attend the launch of the revamped Louis Vuitton store in Sydney. The space is absolutely gorgeous and it was such a special opportunity to be able to take it all in and check out what new LV goodies that are in store right now (and possibly work on my Christmas wish list at the same time!).
There was no question that I wanted to wear something by the brand, in keeping with the occasion, but what was more difficult was narrowing it down to just one look. This gorgeous monogrammed shift dress however really stood out for me. I’ve always been a huge fan of shift dresses and this particular one, with its elevated finishing details, particularly the dual zips was a standout design. I also liked the tweed fabrication which gave it a great textured look, not to mention the bi colour monogram.
When working with such a strong piece I think it’s good to keep accessories simple and to a minimum. So I decided on a black Louis Vuitton shoulder bag with logo clasp, and sleek Giuseppe Zanotti two strap heels. They were both great complementary pieces but took nothing away from the dress and really allowed it to stand out.
