Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week

8th September, 2022

It’s been a busy few days and another week of transeasonal weather in Sydney. Don’t you just love when it’s hot one minute and cold the next? I’ve also had a few different things on this week so I’ve been able to utilise various aspects of my wardrobe, along with incorporating a few not-so-new-anymore wardrobe updates into the mix. It’s always great to be able to rediscover old pieces and find ways to rejuvenate them into new looks. Here’s what I wore this week.

I wore this to a launch and loved it so much it had to be revisited again. Matching sets are such a great go-to for events as they instantly look polished and you don’t really have to do much at all! I added some nude Bottega heels to achieve a more streamlined silhouette with the white top and white pants, while a tan bag added a little hint of colour.

I’d say this is one of my fave weekday uniforms – jeans, a tee and a blazer are one of my failsafe outfit combinations. It’s comfy plus I can get away with wearing it to work and also the school run. Black boots are a great way to ground an outfit and give it a bit of edge, while I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a classic blazer like this Michael Lo Sordo number.

You can’t get more comfortable than this look, and the beauty in it is that I think it still looks polished. This quarter zip jumper by Venroy and good ol’ fashioned denim and white sneakers is my usual shortcut to an easy, unfussy look. There’s also a freshness to wearing white that makes it perfect for spring.

As you can see, the girls and I love a spring dress. This mint green dress by Acler is such an on trend silhouette with the puff sleeves and the fitted bodice, but feels elevated with the embroidered trim. Also now that we’ve farewelled winter, I definitely think it’s the perfect time to embrace some colour, particularly soft pastels such as this.

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.

What I Wore This Week

16th December, 2021

I’m currently in school holiday mode with the girls so when it comes to my wardrobe, I’ve primarily been all about comfort when it comes to my outfits. That said I’ve also had a work thing or two that has required stepping it up a bit more. Luckily, I’ve had a few casual pieces on rotation that have made getting dressed all the more fun. Denim has obviously been a big staple, and as always, has proven to be the perfect foundation to build a look. This is especially the case now that I’m in busy mum mode juggling the kids plus the lead up to Christmas and some last minute things on the work front before the break. Here’s what I wore this week.

This corset top by Viktoria and Woods has become an unexpected wardrobe MVP. It goes with virtually anything and is super comfortable. It comes in black too and I’m seriously considering getting it too as I’ve been using the white so often. Jeans and a white top is one of my fave outfit combinations when I don’t want to fuss around too much with a look—it’s a classic for a reason! I decided to step this look up a notch with the addition of a vibrant Dior tote bag and my fave Chanel flats. Sometimes all it takes is the addition of a few key accessories to completely change the vibe of an outfit.

Aussie brand Venroy does the most beautiful linen pieces and everything the sell is so soft and comfortable. I loved the cut and colour of this playsuit and have found it to be a fun wardrobe addition. I’ve been a huge fan of the Proenza Schouler collab with Birkenstock and immediately knew I needed these sandals. I like the fact they’re slightly dressier than a regular pair of Birkenstocks given they’re patent leather plus the ivory/off white shade of these shoes makes them really easy to pair with a number of different outfits. I can also walk miles in them as they’re so unbelievably comfortable. I have this Sparrows Weave basket bag from a few seasons back and I still find it to be such a great shape and style to pair with a summer look. Another collab I’m also loving is the one Bec & Bridge have done with the sunglasses brand, Pared. The shape of these sunnies is great, plus it comes in a range of different colours.

White jeans are so fresh and look great in summer. It’s a good way to do jeans but in a more seasonal way. I’ve worn jeans by the brand Slvrlake before and really rate the cut and feel so these jeans were a no-brainer to snap up. I wanted to pair them with a coloured Good American top to liven up this look a little bit more, plus I like the contrast it provides. I added my trusty Birkenstocks for the perfect footwear option for a day of running around, but without compromising on style.

I’ve spoken in the past how I love co-ord sets as you can wear the pieces separately or together, and this top is one such example of that. It’s part of a set that I’ve worn on the blog before, and it works great on its own too. These are the Levi’s jeans I get DMs about constantly and they’re still going strong! If you’re looking for skinny jeans that kinda have the look of an on trend straight leg style I highly recommend these. A new addition to my summer wardrobe are these gold sandals and they’ve proven themselves to be super versatile. They can be worn with jeans, dresses, shorts and skirts so I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them. To finish of this look, I wanted to add another pop of colour so my Dior tote made another appearance.

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.
