What I wore this week

18th November, 2021

I’m trying to deal with the constantly changing weather in Sydney which means that I’m finding myself in jeans and a jumper one minute and summer dresses the next. The upside is that I’m getting to utilise some wintery pieces I didn’t get a chance to wear earlier in the year (four months in lockdown meant lounge wear, all day everyday), along with dipping my toe into the summer wardrobe I’ve been dying to wear for several months now! There are just so many fun pieces right now that I’ve bookmarked for the coming months. So here’s a look at what I’ve been wearing of late…

This is pretty much my go-to uniform when I want to feel comfortable but look polished at the same time. This Venroy jumper is really cosy and lightweight which means it’s perfect for helping me navigate transseasonal dressing, while my fave Levis and ultra comfy Ducie sandals round out this look.

There’s something about an all white look that always looks so fresh and sophisticated. I have worn this corset top with jeans before but thought it would look great worked back with white trousers for a dressy look with edge. I paired it with black Bottega Veneta heels and the cutest shearling trimmed Jacquemus big which adds an unexpected touch to my ensemble, plus you can never go wrong with anything mini sized.

I recently discovered the brand Gul Hurgel and love it so much. This printed off the shoulder dress is flirty, feminine and fun and the perfect piece to have in rotation during summer. The ruffles and hearts are all kinds of cute and so great for balmy summer days.  I took the dressy route in this instance by pairing it with a structured clutch and oval framed sunglasses by Le Specs, but I could see this going more casual with some beautiful slides.

Denim is always guaranteed to be on high rotation in my weekly wardrobe repertoire as its such a reliable base for an outfit. I wore an earthy, terracotta-toned top with a bold shoulder detail with this particular look and I’ve found it be such a flattering silhouette, as the statement shoulders achieve a more cinched in look, accentuating the waist. In fact, I rate it so highly that I’ve also got this top in another colour! To add a playful and on trend touch I wore a rainbow choker by Roxanne Assoulin.

What I Wore: True Blue

8th June, 2021

The oh-so classic combination of a crisp white shirt and jeans is something I often turn to when it comes to my fave tried and tested looks. I’ve worn it in so many different iterations, just swapping the shirt for different styles and the jeans for alternative cuts and washes but it always works out regardless. So I decided what better way to wear this Aje shirt than with my fave Levis? This shirt has been such a welcome addition to my wardrobe. I’ve always loved the signature Aje silhouette with the puff sleeves and the statement button at the neck, but I like the fact this is a short sleeved version which makes it easy to wear throughout winter or summer. And these are the jeans the pair that I shared a few months ago that I get so many DMs about. They’re still going strong, and I’m still getting messages about them! They’re such a great fit, the perfect length and juuust the right wash. These are my second pair because I wear the other pair so much I wanted to get a back up.

When it comes to a look such as this I think accessories could be taken in so many different directions. In this instance I went for simple pieces that complement rather than stand out, as I wanted the outfit to be the focal point of this look. So, I opted for a Chanel backpack, one of my most beloved bags simply because it ticks both the form and function box, to add a hit of metallic to quite a pared back colour palette. While my white Bottega Veneta slingbacks work well to carry the hue into another element of my outfit, while still being a standout piece on its own. Plus they’re so comfy. It’s one of the reasons I wear them so often as heels that are comfortable are so hard to find. For a look that’s all about the timeless pairing of white and denim, adding a few modern accoutrements certainly gives it a more contemporary spin.

What I wore this week

11th March, 2021

It was quite a jam packed week this week. I had meetings, big launches, fittings and interstate travel locked into my schedule so I got to work with the full spectrum of my wardrobe. It was comfy singlets one minute, to suiting the next—so I was able to really embrace high-low dressing, and experiment with some new pairings. Here’s what I wore this week.

Off to a few meetings in this ultra comfortable, yet polished look. I am really loving relaxed pants worked back with a tank, it’s such an easy, failsafe outfit template to use, particularly when I don’t have time to fuss around too much with my look.

Attending the ATC launch with my mum and sister-in-law called for something feminine and bright. It was love at first sight for this Joanna Ortiz dress, particularly the print.

I wore this look to my niece’s birthday dinner, as I wanted to wear something that wasn’t too fussy, yet had polish. Denim worked back with a shirt and flats is one of my fave go-to looks as I love it’s classic, sophisticated feel.

I was having fittings for the David Jones parade at the Melbourne Fashion Festival and it was all about this dreamy Aje dress. It’s such a great silhouette with the bodice-like ruching and the puff sleeves. So much fun.

I have been loving the swimsuit-worn-as-bodysuit look for quite awhile, so I definitely fell for this Venroy bodysuit immediately. It looks so great worn with jeans, and paired with sandals it has a great resortwear meets casual wear vibe about it.

This was another fitting I was having for the Melbourne Fashion Festival. I just love the hue of this suit, and the tapered pant worn with oversized blazer. It just has an effortless feel to it which I enjoy.

On my way to the airport! Jumping on a plane just seems like such a foreign concept, that I had to reacquaint myself with what comfy, travel attire is all about. I ended up doing another iteration of my earlier Venroy bodysuit look, but I swapped some accessories out for my fave comfy sandals, and a backpack for the ultimate in hands-free travel.

What I Wore: In Check

30th June, 2020

A chilly family day out at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo on the weekend required having to rug up, so it was the perfect opportunity to snuggle up in this Rebecca Vallance checked coat. Whenever I’m opting for quite a simple outfit, I like to incorporate a statement piece to elevate it and give it a little extra personality. The print on this coat is quite striking so it was the perfect thing to pair back with the classic combination of jeans and a white top.

When I’m after an outfit that’s guaranteed to work I always opt for tried and tested formulas, in this case denim worked back with a white skivvy. This has become a go-to combination of mine during winter and when classic Levis are in the mix, it’s a time honoured fashion combination that forms the foundation for many a look in my wardrobe.

A big day of walking around is all about comfy shoes and these sneakers by D.O.F definitely ticked that box without scrimping on style. I particularly love the athletic vibe of these shoes and the fact it still has a sleek and stylish sensibility. As the final piece of this outfit puzzle, I went with white sunglasses to add a modern finishing touch, and help tie the entire look together.

What I wore working from home

11th June, 2020

The MVPs of my winter wardrobe are slowly presenting themselves as I find myself gravitating towards certain pieces time after time. I’ve been trying to find that line between feeling and looking polished while working from home, and still being comfortable. I think it’s a work in progress, but I’m loving experimenting with different silhouettes and colours. But above all, I’m finding denim still very much rules in my wardrobe…

Jeans and a white tank— you can’t really every go wrong with a combination such as this. This forms the basis for many a look for me as I can easily throw on a jumper or a blazer and it can instantly change up the vibe of the outfit, but also add a touch of polish. I’m loving relaxed denim silhouettes right now, and this pair by Camilla and Marc is really comfy.

These Levis jeans are the best wash—they look vintage and are easily paired with different top styles, and also pair well with most hues. Loving this button down knit by Viktoria and Woods as it has the look of a shirt, but the comfort factor of a knit.

I am seriously loving Aje at the moment, particularly this top (which I’ve also got in black—see below!). Love the voluminous silhouette which works great with a more streamlined pant. I’ve found it works really well with a statement coat, and simple white pumps help finish off the look.

The hue of this Aje skirt is such a good shade for winter. It’s the perfect pop of colour to add a little more energy to a winter look, plus worked back with a black smock top, it looks polished. I also like the fact that I can take this look into spring, which definitely betters the cost per wear of this look.
