What I Wore This Week: Holiday Edition

21st January, 2022

As we near the end of summer holidays, I’ve been reminiscing about some of the looks I’ve worn over the past few weeks. From race days, to soaking up the sun poolside and spending time with my family, these are some of the outfits I’ve worn, and the fond memories I’ve created. There have been lots of opportunities to wear new brands that I’ve recently fallen in love with and champion Aussie brands I’ve long loved. Here’s what I wore: the holiday edition.

I’ve loved wearing this as a cover up for the pool because of the vibrant print and the oversized fit. This swimsuit is a favourite as I love the flattering cut and the bold rust hue. I’m never without a wide brimmed hat whenever I’m spending time in the sun and this Avenue hat is perfection—just the right shape and size, and I love the tie which keeps it in place.

Hanging out on the farm in this gorgeous set by Alemais. The unexpected colour combination of terracota with splashes of pink, coupled with the print make it a real statement look. It’s also unbelievably comfy which ticks so many boxes for me. I’ve spent the summer in these Proenza Schouler Birkenstocks and they just go with everything. Also another tick in the comfort box.

At the Magic Millions with my family. This white Dissh dress is a lightweight linen which is perfect for balmy days and the crisp white hue is always a winner in summer. I wore these with strappy heels by Aje and a top handle basket bag. I’m always a fan of anything white in summer as it instantly looks dressy and polished.

Here I am filming at Scanlan Theodore with Laura Dundovic for Channel 7. I love this aquamarine hue as it really pops! This form fitting dress is so great for summer, and could work in numerous settings from an elevated look for work to a polished ensemble for a long lunch. The shoes and bag are also by Scanlan Theodore which just further reinforces how many amazing things the brand currently has in store.

What I Wore This Week

16th December, 2021

I’m currently in school holiday mode with the girls so when it comes to my wardrobe, I’ve primarily been all about comfort when it comes to my outfits. That said I’ve also had a work thing or two that has required stepping it up a bit more. Luckily, I’ve had a few casual pieces on rotation that have made getting dressed all the more fun. Denim has obviously been a big staple, and as always, has proven to be the perfect foundation to build a look. This is especially the case now that I’m in busy mum mode juggling the kids plus the lead up to Christmas and some last minute things on the work front before the break. Here’s what I wore this week.

This corset top by Viktoria and Woods has become an unexpected wardrobe MVP. It goes with virtually anything and is super comfortable. It comes in black too and I’m seriously considering getting it too as I’ve been using the white so often. Jeans and a white top is one of my fave outfit combinations when I don’t want to fuss around too much with a look—it’s a classic for a reason! I decided to step this look up a notch with the addition of a vibrant Dior tote bag and my fave Chanel flats. Sometimes all it takes is the addition of a few key accessories to completely change the vibe of an outfit.

Aussie brand Venroy does the most beautiful linen pieces and everything the sell is so soft and comfortable. I loved the cut and colour of this playsuit and have found it to be a fun wardrobe addition. I’ve been a huge fan of the Proenza Schouler collab with Birkenstock and immediately knew I needed these sandals. I like the fact they’re slightly dressier than a regular pair of Birkenstocks given they’re patent leather plus the ivory/off white shade of these shoes makes them really easy to pair with a number of different outfits. I can also walk miles in them as they’re so unbelievably comfortable. I have this Sparrows Weave basket bag from a few seasons back and I still find it to be such a great shape and style to pair with a summer look. Another collab I’m also loving is the one Bec & Bridge have done with the sunglasses brand, Pared. The shape of these sunnies is great, plus it comes in a range of different colours.

White jeans are so fresh and look great in summer. It’s a good way to do jeans but in a more seasonal way. I’ve worn jeans by the brand Slvrlake before and really rate the cut and feel so these jeans were a no-brainer to snap up. I wanted to pair them with a coloured Good American top to liven up this look a little bit more, plus I like the contrast it provides. I added my trusty Birkenstocks for the perfect footwear option for a day of running around, but without compromising on style.

I’ve spoken in the past how I love co-ord sets as you can wear the pieces separately or together, and this top is one such example of that. It’s part of a set that I’ve worn on the blog before, and it works great on its own too. These are the Levi’s jeans I get DMs about constantly and they’re still going strong! If you’re looking for skinny jeans that kinda have the look of an on trend straight leg style I highly recommend these. A new addition to my summer wardrobe are these gold sandals and they’ve proven themselves to be super versatile. They can be worn with jeans, dresses, shorts and skirts so I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them. To finish of this look, I wanted to add another pop of colour so my Dior tote made another appearance.

What I Wore: Getting Cosy

2nd June, 2016

IMG_4739Temperatures how really dropped of late so it’s now time to officially pull out all my cosy winter gear. This great cardigan by Life with Bird is the ideal go-to piece to throw on over a tee, and the black and white grid pattern gives it a great point of difference. I searched high and low for a pair of jeans that would easily transition from day to night and this pair by Camilla and Marc is the perfect shade of blue to be a bit of a wardrobe chameleon; it can easily work for a variety of different looks. My Preen sunglasses have been on high rotation of late because they’re so versatile and I love that the cat-eye detail gives them a bit of a vintage feel. I’ve teamed this look with my Proenza Schouler clutch and Aquazurra heels to give it a dressier feel but if could easily be dressed down with a pair of sneakers and a tote for casual weekend wear.

What I Wore: MBFWA Day Four

18th May, 2016

I wanted to wear a striking colour today and this one-shoulder dress by TOME really fit the bill. I love the bold mustard hue which worked well offset by gold accessories including my new favourite — my Eddie Borgo choker. The slightly billowy cut of the dress has a relaxed sophistication about it and the hint of skin gave it a slightly Grecian feel.

What I Wore: Light and Shade

5th May, 2016


Monochrome is always a winning combination. Prints can be tricky to work with at times but when in black and white it simplifies the look and provides an anchor point for the rest of your outfit. I kept this look quite subdued with black accessories but you could always choose to make a statement and add a pop of colour instead. I loved the bare back of this dress and when worn with a plain bralette it’s more edgy than risque.

Shop the look: Killer heels

3rd February, 2016


Any shoe that falls into the statement heels category has my heart. Show-stopping heels are one of the quickest and easiest ways to take an outfit next-level. In fact, I often update my wardrobe each season by buying one to two pairs of statement heels. I find that it’s the kind of purchase I can always get plenty of wear out of in the years to come. All my favourite designers’ shoe game has been strong this season but these are some of my current faves. Hopefully you’ll find a new addition to your shopping list!


Mules are huge this season, but when you also add a metallic heel and knot detailing it definitely seals the deal as a purchase worth making.


Simple, classic and elegant – you cannot go wrong with this shoe. This is a style that every woman should have as it’s a great go-to shoe for when you’re dressing up for a night out or for a formal occasion such as a wedding.


Ah leopard print. The unexpected neutral. I’ve got a few leopard print pieces in my wardrobe and I’ve found they’re quite easy to mix and match so this statement heel would definitely be in high rotation for me.


These caged heels would get a major workout in my wardrobe. This style while intricate and quite bold would work easily with everything from a pair of leather leggings to a cocktail dress to a skirt.


If you’re not a fan of a teetering on a stiletto heel then a block heel is ideal as it provides slightly more support (not to mention it’s easier to walk in!). The gold buckles and multistrap design makes this statement heel quite modern and fresh.


I love Alaïa heels for their great craftsmanship but also the fact they’re just so fashion-forward. The beautiful blush colour makes this an easy shoe to mix and match with lots of different looks but the cutouts and stitching are the kind of finishing touches that elevate it from your average, garden-variety heel.


The fringe detailing on this shoe adds just the right amount of interest to make it stand out but the fact it’s black makes it a staple.




The wardrobe items I use the most

21st September, 2015


They say that on average we only wear 20 per cent of our wardrobe regularly. I know that I often rediscover things in my wardrobe from years ago and enjoy having them in rotation again, but there are definitely some things which I will always wear without fail. These following items have definitely been worth the investment purely based on the cost per wear factor. They’re the building blocks of plenty of outfits and I’ve been able to wear them in myriad ways.

1. Balenciaga leather jacket

I have had my Balenciaga leather jacket for years. It was a bit of a splurge at the time I bought it but it has definitely lasted the test of time. It’s a really good quality and it’s really warm so it’s a winter staple. I take it everywhere I go (including to interview supermodels like Erin Wasson!). Also, Balenciaga sells this jacket all the time so it’s not a trend item that you can identify with a certain season.


2. Balmain blazer

I just get so much wear out of my blazer. I actually bought it on sale at Net-a-Porter. They’re so expensive so my tip is to be patient and keep an eye out for it to go on sale. I didn’t want to buy it full price so I was consistently on the look out for it to go on sale. It took me a few seasons but I eventually found one. I wear this blazer to death so it was definitely worth the investment.


3. Proenza Schouler clutch

My mum gave this clutch to me as a present and I am always using it. It’s really great because I can dress it up and down. It’s just a plain black clutch with detailing but it’s really versatile; I often wear it dressed down with jeans but it doesn’t look out of place worn at night for a more formal occasion. If you can find a go-to black clutch, you’re set for so many different occasions.

4. Balenciaga Le Dix Cartable bag

I have always said this bag is one of my wardrobe staples. I like that I can wear it as a handbag slung over my arm or wear it with the strap over over my shoulder to keep my hands free. If I’m ever buying a designer handbag I make sure that I can get plenty of use out of it and it’s not just a bag I save for certain occasions. Being a mum, having my hands free is really important to me when I’m out and about with Sophia so this bag is perfect.

Flying to Dubai on Qantas Airways.

5. Scanlan Theodore Raw backpack

I have not taken this backpack off since I got it. I only got it a couple of months ago and I haven’t stopped using it because a backpack is so easy when you have a baby. It’s also the perfect bag to take when I’m travelling. I brought it on my trip to Dubai this year and it was ideal as I was able to take all my essentials and still keep my hands free to deal with my other bags.


6. Alaia fringed suede sandals

I buy two pairs of statement heels a season and this was one of them. These sandals have seen me through Fashion Week and also many events I’ve attended throughout the year. They’re great as black goes with virtually everything in my wardrobe but they also add a unique touch to an outfit because of the fringed detail. I love anything that’s got some interesting detail that makes it stand out.


7. Alaia ankle boots

If I splurge on a pair of statement heels I make sure I can wear them to death. In winter I always buy a boot and as soon as I saw these I knew I’d get a lot of wear out of them. I always opt for black purely because I know I can make them work in so many different ways. Now that summer is almost here, I’m on the look out for a pair of strappy black statement heels and a nude shoe to get me through the warmer months.

What are the items in your wardrobe that you wear to death?

What I Wore: Bec and Bridge

22nd July, 2015


I am all about a wardrobe that can work virtually all year round so when I saw this dress from Bec & Bridge‘s latest collection (in-store now) I could see myself wearing it now and through to summer. I love the little details on this dress such as the cutout detail and draping and I am always on board with anything in monochrome! While the weather is cooler I’ll be wearing this dress with my leather jacket and come summertime, it will be ideal for long lunches in the sunshine.

What I Wore: The Clash

11th June, 2015









I love clashing prints. If you’re going to do print on print it’s best to make them clash. I think it creates more of an impact than having head to toe matching prints. I really like the graphic print on this black and White Sportmax jumper and decided to team it with one of my old Balenciaga vintage skirts – it’s still in the same monochrome family but the prints are really contrasting.

What I Wore: MBFWA Day Two

14th April, 2015


It was a gorgeous day today so what better time to wear a bright sunny yellow! I wore my favourite leather jacket over my dress which gave it a slightly more casual feel. It was another jam packed day today but I have to say, after checking out the Toni Maticevski show, it was definitely my favourite show so far!
