Fashion, What I Wore

2020: My year in outfits

31st December, 2020

What a year it has been. From going into lockdown and all of a sudden finding myself in WFH outfit mode every day of the week, to figuring out how to dress for COVID life – one that entailed a lot more time spent at home, but as restriction gradually eased, attending events again. Big events that are usually pillars of my calendar including Fashion Week, and attending the Melbourne Cup Carnival didn’t happen, the former not at all while the latter looked slightly different when spending it in Sydney rather than Melbourne

The one constant has been finding ways to experiment and have fun with my wardrobe, regardless of whether it was being in my home office and juggling home schooling, or whether it was tentatively attending events again, including key race days. While this year has certainly been unexpected, and not entirely what I’d imagined, it was nice to still be able to embrace my love of fashion, something familiar when everything else seemed anything but.

2020 has also allowed me to hone in on my style, to find out what I actually do turn to and find comfort in, and what ultimately I gravitate towards that makes me feel happy, confident and uplifted. I learned what works and what doesn’t, and now more than ever, the pieces that I genuinely love versus those which weren’t so important after all.

I can only imagine what is in store for 2021. Hopefully we’re all going to be gifted with a better year. But for now, here’s my own little way of reflection and remembering the year that was, one outfit at a time.


2019: My year in outfits

31st December, 2019

What a year! This post is always such a great way to look back over the last 12 months and relive everything I’ve been up to—from places I’ve visited (big trips to Paris and the US this year!) to brands I’ve worked with and all my street style shoots, not to mention all the great events I’ve been lucky to attend, I’m able to reminisce one outfit at a time.

When it comes to fashion, 2019 has been a big year for me. I was able to embrace some great looks at this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia from a sleek khaki green suit by Camilla & Marc to a floaty Lee Mathews dress, it’s always such a fun time to get dressed up and throw my support behind my favourite designers.

As always autumn and spring racing afforded me the opportunity to embrace some truly beautiful looks. From the pastel pink Macgraw look I wore to Melbourne Cup to the lip print dress I wore to Oaks Day and this bold red suit whilst on reporting duties for 7 Racing, every year, racing season is always a sartorial playground for me.

So here’s the year that was. Farewell to this decade and bring on the next…

My year in outfits

31st December, 2018

It’s hard to believe we’re almost at the end of another year. I’ve been so lucky to have had so many great events, work commitments and holidays throughout 2018 and as a result had have the opportunity to wear some truly amazing looks. From this Steven Khalil ball gown at the NGV Gala to this a crisp white Rebecca Vallance look watching the ballet on the beach at Qualia Resort and my favourite time of year—Melbourne Cup it’s been an awesome 12 months for fashion. Here’s to an exciting, eventful and stylish 2019 for everyone!

2017: My year in outfits

30th December, 2017

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost at the end of another year. And for me, 2017 has been particularly busy filled with some truly memorable events, amazing opportunities to work with some of my favourite brands and lots of lovely moments with my family. On the fashion front, I’ve had some great shoots and big dates in the calendar such as Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia and Melbourne Cup and Derby Day that have given me the perfect reason to be able to push some styling boundaries and wear some gorgeous pieces. From wearing pops of pink to headwear such as a designer turban and vintage scarves to relaxed denim and light and airy summer dresses, I’ve had a huge sartorial year and I am hoping that next year brings even bigger and better things.

Happy New Year everyone’
