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: Melbourne Cup Carnival Launch

29th October, 2020

It’s the first time in many, many years that I won’t be at Flemington for Melbourne Cup but I’m still adamant about embracing the spirit of the event from home. So I was thrilled to host the Melbourne Cup Carnival Sydney launch at Vaucluse House this week. It was one of those special events where so many wonderful women were in the same room, and I had the opportunity to interview my mum—a great day in the office!

I wanted to wear something that was quite feminine, and this printed dress by Louis Vuitton was the ideal option. Vibrant colours and a beautiful floral print were a great option on a day where the weather was quite dreary in Sydney—I always believe what you wear can really lift your spirits. What I loved most about this dress were the finishes. The pleated bib detail, and the statement cuffs and button detail elevated the dress. The A-line skirt was a nod to 60s styling and the voluminous sleeves added a touch of drama.

I managed to find the perfect headband by Ford Millinery. The various shades in the floral design picked up the different shades in the dress, linking the two pieces well. While I had the opportunity to once again wear some beautiful pieces by Chaumet. The cocktail ring was the ideal accoutrement to help finish off this look, and it also picked up the gold of my mini LV bag. When it comes to event wear, I’ve always. liked having fun with my bags and metallics are such a good way to add a little depth. Streamlined, strappy shoes by Tony Bianco helped finish off this look, adding an on-trend element to accompany the more classical elements of this ensemble.

What I Wore: Moët & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes Day

10th October, 2020

A gorgeous spring day calls for a riot of colour—particularly when it comes in the form of a gorgeous Louis Vuitton dress. I was on reporting duties for 7 Racing again today at the Moët & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes Day and I decided to go for something bold and vibrant. With such a striking print and eye-catching hues, it was made for a day at the races. I also loved the 60s silhouette, with the finishing details really elevating the dress. The waist belt, Peter Pan collar and blouson sleeves give the modern print, a more classic feel.

While the dress definitely does most of the heavy lifting with this look, the accessories tie it all together. I kept the Louis Vuitton thread going, opting for a diminutive lemon yellow bag and classic white pumps by the brand. While my headpiece was simple yet impactful—a crisp white padded headband by Nerida Winter.

Jewellery is always important, being the final finishing flourish. I was lucky enough to wear some beautiful pieces by Chaumet today, while an elegant man-style timepiece by Jaeger LeCoultre helped balance the soft, feminine feel of my entire ensemble.

What I Wore: Sleek and Simple

28th July, 2020

The midi skirt is often one of those pieces that can seem tricky to wear at first but it’s a style that’s quickly become a staple of my wardrobe. This cream skirt by Camilla and Marc is an ideal piece for winter because it’s such a great textural piece to work with, and adds a little depth to a cool weather look. I also love the simple yet elegant seam detail which just adds a point of interest.

While beige could easily work back with so many different hues, I wanted to keep things quite tonal and work with a neutral colour palette. This slimline turtleneck was the perfect option to work back with the skirt, helping to balance the proportions of this look. I also appreciate small, yet impactful finishing touches and I particularly like the white piping on this top which helps lift it and avoid it looking flat.

Ankle boots are a tried and tested winter staple and I had the perfect pair in mind. These Louis Vuitton boots helped ground the look, and the monogram adds a fun touch. I wanted to keep the logo theme going and opted for a Louis Vuitton Speedy with an oversized monogram. It’s a slightly different vibe to the classic LV logo and has a slightly more modern feel. I always finish a look with sunglasses and these small frame Poppy Lissiman sunnies add a fierce and funky touch.

What I Wore: Sweet Serenity

5th July, 2020

It’s quite fitting that this dress by Leo & Lin is called Serenity, because it has a quiet, understated elegance about it. Linen dresses usually evoke a more relaxed vibe, so I like the fact that this dress incorporates such strong finishes. From the buttons on the cuffs and sleeves to the double belting it takes it in a whole different direction and elevates it. I decided to embrace the sheer quality and pair it with underwear that’s allowed to peek through ever so slightly, but it could easily be worn with a slip for a more modest look.

Whenever I’m wearing something that has a more feminine vibe, I like to experiment with strong accessories. Think bold silhouettes, colour or statement features and in this instance I went for ankle boots to help ground the look and provide contrast to the floaty feel of the dress. I also went for a white satchel to work with the hue of the dress, while a pair of slimline Valentino sunglasses, also of the same shade helped finish off the look.

What I Wore: New season denim

23rd June, 2020

I’m embracing different denim shapes this season and it’s all about straight leg jeans. This grey pair by Nobody denim is a great way to freshen up a look by incorporating a different alternative to the classic blue wash into the mix. Relaxed denim silhouettes have become my go-to this winter as they can instantly revamp an existing look, and give it a more modern, on trend feel.

Denim is such a great blank canvas to work with and such an easy one to pair with a multitude of different pieces. I wore this back with a simple white tank (because you can’t ever go wrong with jeans styled with a white top) and popped on a teddy bear coat by Camilla and Marc to add a textural element to my ensemble.

When it comes to accessories I opted to keep things in a similar colour family and keep this look quite tonal. I opted for a pair of monogram Louis Vuitton boots and a metallic bronze backpack. Both work back well with the hue of the coat, while still lifting my overall outfit.

What I Wore: Louis Vuitton Maison launch

30th November, 2019

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.

What I Wore: Country Cool

22nd October, 2019

Light, easy breezy dresses are a mainstay of my spring/summer wardrobe. And for good reason. They’re versatile, easy to wear and look effortlessly chic. The elegant colour palette of vibrant yellow in this Aje dress worked back against crisp white is perfect for spring and is an easy go-to. The sweet embroidery helps lift this look and gives it an accent feature that allows the dress to pop. The simple silhouette also makes the dress a style chameleon, making it easy to pair with everything from a blazer to a cardi to understated accessories or something that pops.

I could easily wear this dress with slides or sandals for a more casual look but I wanted to add shoes that would ground the look a little more. Ankle boots worn with a dress is always a great combination so I opted to pair the dress with Louis Vuitton ankle boots. It’s also a great shoe for such a setting as it gives the overall vibe of the dress a slightly more rustic feel. To finish off the look I went for a relaxed approach to accessorising and layered two of my favourite necklaces. An easy yet impactful look.

My week on Instagram

9th June, 2019

One of the highlights of this week was attending the launch of the Louis Vuitton B.Blossom fine jewellery collection at the brand’s concept store in Sydney. Not only was it great being able to try the different pieces on, it was also fun being able to catch up with friends like Sara Crampton.

This week has also been a great opportunity to snap up some special pieces with Harrold’s big sale. Lots of my favourite designers were on sale and some were reduced up to 50 per cent which to me is the perfect time to nab a few designer things I’ve had my eye on.

And to cap off such a big week, I headed up to our family farm to enjoy a relaxing weekend in the country. The girls always really love it as it gives them the opportunity to run around and have a great time with all the different animals my parents keep. I for one, am glad for the extra day’s break and will definitely be making the most of it enjoying the sunshine.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

What I Wore: Louis Vuitton

8th June, 2019

As a long time fan of Louis Vuitton I was thrilled to attend the launch of their new B Blossom collection at their concept store on Sydney’s George Street. It was so fun to check out all the pieces in the range and have the opportunity to try them on.

When it comes to big launches such as this I always like to support the brand by wearing something from their range, and for this event I was lucky enough to be dressed by Louis Vuitton. For a cocktail party, what better outfit option than a little black dress? I decided on a sleeveless Louis Vuitton LBD but as it was a bit chilly outside, I decided to pop on a turtleneck underneath. It helped keep me warm and has always been a favourite go-to hack of mine to extend the wear of dresses into winter. It had such a beautiful pattern on it which helped elevate it, whilst the silhouette was still classic and sophisticated and ideal for such an event.

I paired this look with simple black Aquazzura pumps and a bold cherry red Louis Vuitton bag which I wore as a clutch. And of course, I wanted to wear a few pieces from the B Blossom collection. I layered two necklaces to add an interesting element to my ensemble, and wore some simple and understated earrings and rings, also from the range, to complement the rest of my look.
