What I Wore: Hamilton Island Race Week

15th September, 2022

It’s been a few weeks since this event but I was able to rock a number of amazing spring/summer looks that I definitely wanted to share. Now’s the time to plan what you’re going to be wearing over the next few months after all. Hamilton Island Race Week is an event I look forward to every year. It’s a great time to catch up with colleagues and friends, spend time at the beautiful Qualia Resort in Hamilton Island and just appreciate island life. Here’s a look at what I packed on my trip.

This set is so much fun. I am really loving how the range of beach/pool cover ups has been really stepped up over the past few years. Matching sets are such a practical thing to bring on a trip as they always look polished but are so easy to wear as separates. This shirt and shorts set by Eres worked perfectly with the strapless khaki swimsuit, which is one of my fave things to do whenever I’m holidaying somewhere warm. A one piece can double as a bodysuit when it’s not doing swimsuit duty and I love that it means one less thing to pack. These vibrant yellow slides added a pop of colour and a fun element to this look.

Out for drinks and catching up with Mode Sportif founder Deborah Symond O’Neil. I have become such a huge fan of the brand Sir the Label, as they do such beautiful polished and understated pieces. I love the graphic elements on this chocolate brown set as it really allows the look to pop. I paired it with white Aje heels and statement earrings, for a vibrant event look.

I wore this to a Paspaley lunch where the dress code was white and think it fit the brief quite well! I’m always a fan of an all white look as it always looks so fresh and polished. This set is also by Sir the Label (I told you I was a fan) and loved the unexpected pairing of a wrap top with a maxi skirt. My Aje heels got another workout, and a cute Apede Mod bag which is something I’ve found to work so easily with so many different looks.

What’s on my shopping wish list

17th January, 2020

The first month of the year always has me wanting to get into wardrobe assessment mode to see what updates I need to make, if any, and also what things are looking tired and need replacing. There’s something quite cathartic about starting with a solid, well-edited closet at the start of each year to help me get back into work mode and ready to start tackling big projects. So, here’s my current wish list. What’s on yours?

Printed Wool-Blend Felt Headband, Fendi

Headbands are one of my go-to forms of headwear because they can work back with so many different looks. Also, it doesn’t require much effort to make it happen unlike other hair accessories which may require a bit more finessing.

Layered Ribbed-Knit Camisole, Dion Lee

This is a great cami because it’s a good layering piece due to its colour, cut and style but it’s also easily able to hold its own when worked back with everything from a skirt to shorts and jeans.

Baye Thong Heel, Tony Bianco

Everything 90s is cool again including the heeled thong. I like the neutral tone of these as I know I’ll be able to wear them with so many different pieces in my wardrobe.

The Pouch Small Gathered Leather Clutch, Bottega Veneta

Everything Bottega Veneta is doing right now is perfection. I love the slouchy look of this clutch which gives it a relaxed feel and the buttery soft leather is a dream.

Flocked Woven Mini Skirt, Fendi

Logomania is still alive and kicking and this skirt by Fendi is a great statement piece, yet the colours make it really wearable and versatile.

Heure H 17.2mm very small gold-plated and textured-leather watch, Hermes

I am always on board when it comes to a beautiful timepiece and this elegant leather watch by Hermes is the kind of thing I can see myself wearing years from now as it’s such a classic design.

Shadow Cropped Ribbed-Knit Top, Dion Lee

Another beautiful layering piece. I also like the fact that I could wear this now but take it into autumn/winter by pairing it with warmer pieces.

Colibri Leather-Trimmed Logo-Print Mesh Slippers, Fendi

There’s something about a soft pink that makes the perfect accent piece for many a look. These slippers are great worn back with pants cropped at the ankle but could easily be worn with a dress.

Presley Ring, Amber Sceats

I tend to favour very simple jewellery and this ring definitely fits the brief. This can be paired with other accessories quite easily making it a great accessory to have in my collection.

Daria, Yuzefi

The unique design of this bag will make it the ideal statement piece to finish off an outfit. The colour and the oversized clasp and chain strap give it a really unique vibe.

What I Wore: Hermès On The Beach

With such relaxed party vibe sans footwear, I opted to glam it up a bit with this full length dress from Sportmax. I feel having a longer dress is always suited to a more beachy vibe and the dress was something that was formal but something I could also be comfortable and relaxed in as well.

Hermès On The Beach

24th February, 2015

The annual Hermès event is a bit of a showstopper. When one of the world’s most exclusive brands throws an event it’s definitely memorable. Previous events have taken place at Luna Park and Vaucluse Park in Sydney, but this year’s event was at Strickland House in Vaucluse. The venue was a gorgeous house that was on the waterfront and upon arrival you were escorted down to the event in your very own golf buggy. The event had a really relaxed vibe with everyone going barefoot. The house was amazing. There was a mirrored maze through the house and the walls were decorated with Hermès silk scarves (very chic wallpaper indeed!). Everyone was given a mask to wear which gave the entire event a masquerade party feel, but the standout masks were definitely the paper horse heads some people were wearing, they were so intricate and incredible up close. All in all, it was a lovely way to spend a balmy Sydney evening.
