What I Wore: Feeling Festive

14th December, 2023

It’s the time of year again when red is very much the colour of the season (but also, rather conveniently it’s trending in general) so this gorgeous Oroton dress caught my eye the moment I saw it. The vibrant poppy shade is festive and fun and perfect for party season. It’s a good one to bookmark for Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or just a special catch up with friends. I love the feature back with the the statement bow and also the corset like bodice of the dress, it’s definitely the kind of summer dress that can be pulled out again for various occasions and changed up according to your accessories.

The icing on the this festive look are the current season accessories by Oroton. It was really fun to collaborate with Oroton on this shoot as it was like being a kid in a candy store being able to play with all their new bags and jewellery. I opted for this chunky gold chain necklace and matching bracelet to complement the red of the dress, plus I’ve found both jewellery styles to be the kind of versatile accoutrements that work across so many outfits in my wardrobe. I finished things off with a mini white bag to add a contrasting piece, and that’s it, Christmas look well and truly sorted don’t you think?

What I wore this week

19th October, 2023

The weather was a bit up and down this week so I had to pull out some wintery pieces that I thought had gone into hibernation for good. Such is the unpredictability when it comes to the weather at this time of year! I had a few meetings and some running around to do so I had a few outfits that were a little dressy, but mostly it was about comfort. A few of my new season favourites featured heavily in my outfit rotation, which is great as I love being able to get maximum wear out of everything. Here’s what I wore this week.

I needed something nice and toasty this week and this loungewear set by Joslin is heaven. It’s super soft so it’s perfect for spending the day in at home, but it’s elevated enough that I can wear it when I’m heading out. Love the textured finish on both the jumper and pants. I finished it off with my shearling Camilla and Marc slides, which are such a great transeasonal shoe.

When something is in rotation every week you know it’s a worthwhile wardrobe addition. These Anna Quan tailored pants work back with so many different tops in my closet, and are a bit of a style chameleon. I can easily dress them up or down. I’ve aslo been wearing this off-the-shoulder Viktoria and Woods top almost weekly. I’ve always been a fan of an off-the-shoulder neckline and this top sits well and doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall down, which is often a problem with other similar styles. Thumbs up!

My workout looks are almost always in muted tones, and black features quite heavily in the mix. This is a great Lorna Jane set as it sits well, offers support where it needs to and it’s quite breathable.

Suiting is always a fave of mine, but I love this as an option for warmer weather. It has all the polish of a suit, but without sleeves, the blazer feels a little more fashion forward (and more comfortable for hotter days). I went with some beige accessories, including my Fendi Peekaboo bag and minimalist Scanlan Theodore heels.

What I wore this week

21st September, 2023

I’ve posted a few of these looks on my Instagram, but I’m playing catch up with sharing the outfit details for the blog so I thought I’d do a round up of some of the dressier outfits I’ve been wearing of late. What I am really enjoying about dressing up for events lately is that there are so many options. I’ve gone down the path of wearing suiting a fair bit because I love that it always looks so sharp and polished. Plus it’s a little more of an unexpected option when you’re required to look more elevated. That said, I still love a good frock! I had the opportunity to wear a gorgeous, vibrant gown for a shoot recently and there really is something lovely about being able to wear a gorgeous dress. So, heres what I wore this week.

They’re usually my go-to when I’m after something ultra feminine, but this suit by Zimmermann is so good. I love the subtle pinstripe and the cream has such a fresh feel to it. The matching bustier also takes this suit in a different direction, giving it a slightly sexier vibe. Worn back with black pumps, this outfit cements my love of suiting even more.

This sleeveless suit has such a cool feel to it, and taps into the vest trend too. The double breasted silhouette but sans sleeves is an unexpected touch and gives this entire outfit a modern feel. Also the crisp white colour makes it perfect for spring and summer, and both pieces can be worn separately and fashioned into other looks which I love. I added a crossbody bag in brown, complemented by heels and sunnies in a similar colour palette to add a touch of colour but still maintain cohesion for the whole look.

As you can see I can’t resist a great suit, and Aussie designers are really excelling in this department. This suit is by Manning Cartell and has a lightness to it that makes it the perfect option for transeasonal weather. I added some metallic pumps for some edge.

It’s spring racing time and as part of a shoot I did for the Australian Turf Club, I had the opportunity to frock up in this stunning fuchsia gown by Velani. The oversized flower motif is channelling Carrie Bradshaw’s striped Sonia Rykiel top in Paris and adds such a fun, playful feel to the dress. The thigh high split adds a dramatic touch, and the vibrant hue is so great for spring. I actually had to ride the horse as part of the shoot, so I’d count this as one of my most glam horseriding outfits to date!

What I wore this week

9th March, 2023

Today was a week for Aussie labels and there’s nothing I love more than championing homegrown brands. I wholeheartedly believe we have some of the best designers in the world, so it’s great to be able to wear local brands as much as I can. I’ve had a few different work-related commitments this week so I went for lots of polished looks, with a few fun accessories thrown into the mix. Here’s what I wore this week.

I love the monochromatic feel of this look from Manning Cartell. The pencil skirt features a silver, metallic lace overlay which adds a touch of futuristic glam to this outfit, while the white blouse helps ground it. The heels from Christian Louboutin are a new addition and I can see myself wearing them with several different looks. The mini bag from Oroton taps into the white hues of the outfit, helping to tie everything together.

Fun, playful prints are always in my wheelhouse—I love tapping into them during the warmer months in particular. Right now, I’m taking advantage of the continuing warm weather with this Significant Other dress with side cut outs and tropical themed embroidery. Paired with a Sparrow’s Weave basket bag and yellow Hermes slides to tie into the florals on the dress, I’ll be making the most of this look until it gets too cold to do so!

Rebecca Vallance pieces are always in rotation in my wardrobe, particularly when it comes to dresses. This striped number with the puffed sleeves and cinched waist is one of my favourite kinds of silhouettes as it’s ultra flattering. Also, I love a bold print. I loved the pairing of the basket bag and Hermes slides so much that I decided to hit repeat with this particular look.

I wrote about this Scanlan Theodore dress that was on sale previously, and as you can see, I loved it so much that it came home with me. The teal hue is a little unexpected and makes for a nice hit of colour. Also, ribbed knit dresses are not only on trend this season, but also ultra comfortable too. I added a few pops of gold jewellery to work against the boldness of the dress and really accentuate it.

School holidays has me rocking more casual looks this week and it’s been great to be able to explore that side of my wardrobe a little more. Looking after two little girls, it’s mostly been about comfort interspersed with the occasional dressy look. That said, one pattern does seem to be emerging… a matching set can’t be beat. Whether it’s a shirt and shorts combination, a skirt and button down, or a crop and skirt, a co-ordinating set is definitely a great shortcut to looking polished without much effort. So, here are a few of my faves…

Brights are definitely on trend this season and this orange Kinney has been a tried and tested mood booster. A vibrant hue is always a great option for summer, plus it makes a statement. My white Gucci slides added a neutral touch and allowed the colour to shine.

I love this skirt and crop set by Seed Heritage. It’s so beautifully feminine, but the neutral hue helps to ground it and keeps it from looking too saccharine. This is a great polished look for an event. Also, each works well as separates.

Denim is always a failsafe option no matter the occasion. This shirt and shorts set is a great casual go-to and it’s perfect for wearing as separates too. These comfy Camilla and Marc slides have been a fun addition to my wardrobe and add a statement feature to a simple look. I went with a roomy Dior tote on this day, which served the practical purpose of holding all my essentials, but also added a statement pop of colour.

Oroton’s ready-to-wear range is seriously on point this season, with lots of fun pieces to embrace. This colourful printed set is the perfect resortwear look, and if you’re off on holiday, definitely consider it. I also went with a white Oroton mini bag and white sandals to add an extra touch of freshness to this ensemble.

What I Wore: Citron Moment

16th August, 2022

Looking for your next cocktail dress? This could be it. The first thing that I noticed about this dress was the striking citron colour. You don’t often see dresses in that vibrant yellow shade, and it really sets it apart from its other cocktail dress contemporaries. The design also taps into my growing love for a one shoulder neckline (I’ve been embracing it in everything from tops to swimsuits and dresses) but I particularly love the delicate execution of the style, with the simple thin strap. Also the twist detail, with the interesting contrast between the matte and shiny fabric. The midi length is usually my go-to for events, but you often have to strike the right balance between it looking chic and slightly frumpy. The split hem injects just the right amount of sexiness and boldness to have it sitting firmly in the chic camp.

Working with bold colours usually requires a measured approach to accessories as you don’t want to do something that’s too overwhelming. I rediscovered these Aquazzura beauties and knew immediately they’d pair perfectly with the dress. The snakeskin offers just the right amount of contrast, while the tie feature adds some grit and gives the overall look some edge. A mini chain strap bag by Oroton and cat eye sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman were the perfect accoutrements to finalise the look. Bring on the next event!

What I wore this week

31st March, 2022

This week, my wardrobe was largely about dressing for comfort, while embracing a few hits of colour. It’s always funny seeing how my looks pan out during the week as there are definitely times where I can see a pattern emerging. The last few days have been about utilising some of the most comfortable pieces in my wardrobe and adding some extra fun accents, with a bold hue here and a striking accessory there. With the unpredictable weather we’ve been having of late, I’ve also been going from cardis one minute to strappy tops the next, but I do appreciate that with this wide variation in temperature, I’m able to embrace all aspects of my wardrobe a whole lot longer.

When autumn rolls around I love slowly introducing knits into my wardrobe, and what better way to start than with a hit of vibrant pink. Cosy cardis are always my go-tos and this new season style by Steele is the perfect way to inject a bit of fun into an outfit. With its button through front and balloon sleeves, not to mention the mix of various textures, it’s a statement piece with a playful vibe. I wanted to layer pink on pink with this Manning Cartell cami with halterneck detail, and with so much colour I pared it back with these classic straight leg jeans by Viktoria and Woods.

A busy day ahead means comfort is high on my list. So, I styled these Ena Pelly pants with a different vibe from last week’s pairing with a knitted jumper and instead paired them with a sleeveless tee with shoulder pads by Good American. I went with a tonal colour palette, working with earthy hues and using neutrals as accent pieces for a look that’s high on effortless style.

I got all dressed up on this day with this beige combination that’s anything but boring. This one shoulder top with oversized balloon sleeve makes for a standout feature piece, but worked back with pintuck pants, it helps to balance the more dramatic feel of the top. I often find that wearing similar shades in one outfit works to create a really bold effect, while adding textural pieces like my shearling trimmed Jacquemus bag and mesh Bottega Veneta heels add a layer of depth.

I adore this top by Viktoria and Woods. It’s such a beautifully feminine design and the cornflower blue is such a great shade. I wore this back with denim on this day, but I’ve also paired it with crisp white pants and it works just as well. I always like to add slightly punchier pieces to a look when I’m wearing jeans, and in this instance it was all about a bright pink and red Gucci bag. I wore white flats for comfort but it’s a great style to work back wiht a slightly tapered jean.

What I Wore: Naked Sundays launch

22nd March, 2022

I attended a launch hosted by beauty brand Naked Sundays this week and being a lovely location by the water, plus the sun was finally shining in Sydney, I opted for an outfit with a slightly summery vibe. I’ve been really loving the ready-to-wear range Oroton is doing and this particular dress was high on my list of pieces I wanted to roll out before the cooler temperatures well and truly set in for autumn. Midi dresses are always a favourite of mine when it comes to event dressing as I find they always look so chic and polished. Earthy hues are right on trend so I was really loving the caramel hue of this dress. I’m all about interesting finishing details and I couldn’t go past this this twisted strap neckline and the asymmetrical sleeve detail. They give the look a theatrical touch and a healthy injection of boldness. A definite must for an occasion look.

I accessorised with a few old faves plus a new addition! This Oroton bucket bag is such a great beige hue and worked well against the caramel colour of the dress. The colours play well against each other and allowed the other to pop. I then utilised my fave Bottega Veneta heels to dress up this look, while Manning Cartell chain link earrings added a statement feature to tie everything together.

What I Wore This Week

27th January, 2022

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things on the work front so it’s been a mixture of getting dressed up for those events, while also being at the tail end of the school holidays and living in my favourite casual gear. There’s a lot of new pieces I’m keen to wear and I’m excited to roll them out over the coming weeks but I also have a newfound appreciation for my go-tos. These are the pieces that I wear most of the time and are in constant rotation because of how comfortable and versatile they are. Here’s what I wore this week.

I am loving how fun suiting has become. This is one of my faves by Acler, as the cut is spot on and so flattering while the rust colour is an unexpected hue as far as suits go. This Viktoria and Woods bustier top is currently one of my faves as it’s so easy to pair with multiple pieces. I’ve been able to dress it up or down, and it looks polished each time. I finished this look with my go-to Bottega Veneta heels and a structured clutch by Oroton.

Loving this elevated casual look. This Christopher Esber top is such an interesting style with the dual rings and cut-outs, I also love the olive hue. These Slvrlake jeans have also been a great summer staple, the crisp white colour is the perfect base to pair with multiple tops and the cropped cut works well with different sandals and slides. These black flatform thongs from Rozalia Russian’s collab with Billini have been such a fun addition to my shoerobe this season, they’re ultra comfy and also give existing outfits an on trend feel.

My jeans making another appearance! I was taking the girls out to watch a show and I wanted a comfy look, so opted for a denim and shirt combination. I got this striped shirt as part of a set and I’ve worn it on its own as much as I have with the matching shorts. The red stripe adds a bold touch to an outfit and always looks polished. I’ve spent most of summer in these Proenza Schouler Birkenstocks because they’re the perfect flat shoe for when I’m on the go with the girls, and the colour goes with virtually everything.

Statement dresses are often my go-to during summer and this Rosetta Getty cut out dress has been one of my favourite new additions to my wardrobe. The neutral hue means I can pair it with a variety of different accessories, while the combination of long sleeves and cut out detail adds an interesting touch. We were heading out to dinner so I dressed it up with black heels, and the cutest shearling trimmed Jacquemus bag.

Afterpay Australian Fashion Week: Day 2

1st June, 2021

I went to two shows today, Oroton and Maggie Marilyn and it called for a day of embracing soft neutrals. Specifically this Isabel Marant look which is a great example of the beauty of elevated staples. This jacket with its puff sleeves and cinched tie waist is reminiscent of a safari jacket, but with softer lines, and feminine vibes. And all those details combined make for a jacket that’s wearable but with a little extra personality. And what better staple to pair it with than a pair of crisp white jeans? The neutral on white felt very fresh and I loved the fact its such a departure from the usual hues you’d expect on the first day of winter.

I always like to wear something from the brands whose shows I’m seeing and this time around, I zeroed in on this tan Oroton bag. It’s got such a beautiful structured silhouette which adds a bit of polish to the more relaxed silhouette of this outfit, and I could wear it clutch-like or throw it on over my shoulder which is perfect for a day with back to back events. It was then all about these white slingbacks from Bottega Veneta, and wearing white bottoms with white shoes I feel gives a nice elongated effect. And to top it off, gold oval-framed sunglasses to add a hint of playfulness to this look.
