2021: My year in outfits

31st December, 2021

Oh my what a year 2021 has been! It’s our second year of navigating our way through a new normal and it certainly brought some challenges, but also some true moments of light.

I’ve spent the year embracing my love of fashion more than ever before. I embraced some great, longtime favourite Aussie designers, discovered some new brands and enjoyed the return of Australian Fashion Week. Being able to dress up, support my fave labels and catch up with colleagues and friends in the industry is really something I will never take for granted again.

Every year when I do this post, I am always curious to see how my style has changed from the start of the year to the end. It’s always fun reminiscing on the trends I’ve loved, the pieces I’ve worn on high rotation and the new additions that have really evolved my look. This year, I’ve been all about dresses—midi, mini, maxi, you name it, I wore it. I’ve also embraced colour a lot more from vibrant yellows to bright pinks and everything in between. I’ve loved wearing a number of different pieces throughout the year, from my black Bottega Veneta Stretch heels to my trusty Chanel slingback flats and bottle green Dior Book bag, these have all been by my side (which just goes to show they’ve truly earned their great cost per wear status!). I’ve embraced Aussie designers like Aje, Camilla and Marc, Bec and Bridge, Viktoria and Woods, Venroy, Acler, Bondi Born and Rebecca Vallance while also being lucky enough to wear some truly stunning pieces from international brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi and Dior.

It’s been another great year in fashion and I can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store. Wishing you the most wonderful new year filled with lots of love, laughter and style.

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!
