What I Wore: Crown Sydney

20th January, 2021

I have a newfound appreciation for a great staycation given border restrictions right now so I was thrilled to be invited to check out the newly opened Crown Sydney in Barangaroo. With a luxe holiday feel, it was the the ideal time to try a few resortwear looks.

The one thing I always do whenever I’m on holiday is embrace a simple colour palette that can be mixed and matched. I went for crisp white and warm neutrals in this instance, wearing some great new pieces from Viktoria and Woods. The white pants I’m wearing below have been such a great addition to my summer wardrobe. They go with virtually anything and can easily be dressed up or down (I’ll definitely bookmark them for when the time comes when we’re able to do overseas trips again).

What’s a holiday without being able to get dressed up for a nice dinner? We were lucky to roadtest one of the new restaurants at the Crown so an LBD seemed the ideal starting point. I opted for a sleek Aje dress with a subtle cut-out and and Bottega Veneta sandals.

While poolside, I embraced one of my fave trends of summer: wearing a one-piece swimsuit with pants. I wore a one-shoulder Bondi Born swimsuit with lightweight wide leg pants by Monday Swimwear, which easily took me from sitting by the pool to being able to grab a bite to eat without missing a beat. Sleek and simple – my fave way to do holiday dressing, near or far.

What I wore this week

14th January, 2021

Who else is finding it hard to get back into the swing of things post-Christmas? I’ve been easing myself back into it, but it’s still been a mixture of work, spending time with the girls during the school holidays and the generally trying to settle into routine again.

So needless to say my outfit repertoire has been quite mixed. I’ve gone from family mornings at the beach, to time in front of my laptop to general errand running and it’s allowed me to bring out a few fave pieces but also incorporate some new favourites into the mix.

I love comfy looks at the beach and this has become my go-to because it’s so easy and effortless. The pants and top can be worn separately too, making them really versatile. While this straw hat is a must as it offers great protection from the sun. I’ve been using this straw bag as my carryall all summer, and I love its versatility as it works just as well at the beach as it does out to lunch. A pair of sunnies is the perfect finishing look.

Dresses are my shortcut to looking polished throughout summer. I love the print on this Camilla and Marc look, while a sunny yellow and white clutch by Lucy Folk is the perfect pop of colour.

One of my top brands for dresses in summer is Steele. The designs and prints are always really feminine and fun. This checked dress with shirring has been such a fave of mine throughout the last few weeks.

I felt like wearing something sleek on this day so a black dress it was. I kept the rest of the look quite simple, with sandals and my fave LV backpack. An all black look can sometimes look flat so I added statement gold jewellery to give my outfit a little lift.

What I Wore: Light and bright

30th October, 2017

Spring is the ideal time for light and breezy styles and this white broderie anglaise dress is just right for days spent enjoying the sun. The intricate embroidery add to the classic feel of the dress whilst the chevron detail worked throughout add a layer of visual interest and give it a little depth. I’ve always found that anything in a crisp white is better worked back with understated accessories as it really allows the colour to pop. In this instance I opted for a mini structured bag in a mink shade and round sunglasses with a clear frame to complement rather than compete with the dress. I rarely leave home without a watch so I needed something that was quite streamlined and simple, and my Michel Herbelin timepiece seemed the perfect option. Whilst I do believe in keeping to a simple colour palette when working with white, I do love to always incorporate one bold piece into my look and in this instance it was my favourite gold Gucci heels.

What I Wore: Laidback Tailoring

28th September, 2017

A classic, white button down shirt is a workhorse in my wardrobe. I often turn to it as an easy, no-brainer option when I need to look polished. The trend of late has been for slightly more modern, fashion forward take on the traditional collared shirt. I was drawn to this Anna Quan piece with its oversized silhouette, statement cuffs and exaggerated sleeves precisely for that reason as I loved its contemporary feel and its elevated take on such a much beloved fashion staple. I find navy always works beautifully with white so I opted to pair the shirt with a knee length skirt in that hue. The cut-out detail gives the skirt a point of difference and adds an element of interest to the overall look. This neutral shoulder bag by Loewe is an all-rounder in my closet and can easily be utilised for a day or night look. In keeping my bag quite simple I thought the outfit needed a pop of colour so I paired it with my gold Gucci heels as a contrast to the traditional hues of the rest of the outfit. This look will become a go-to for me when it comes to work attire as I love laid-back tailoring that feels considered yet still remains effortless and not too done.
