Australian Fashion Week 2022: Day 3

11th May, 2022

I always like showing support for designers at Fashion Week when I can by wearing something from the label. Today was the Aje show so of course, it called for a dress by the brand. And what a dress! I love that Aje have developed a signature style, because every season you can rely on them to bring back certain details or silhouettes just refreshed and reimagined. In this instance, of course I was going to opt for the Aje puff sleeve. Statement sleeves have become a huge trend, and Aje can always be relied upon to do a fab voluminous sleeve. Also, I love the asymmetric drawstring detail, which incorporates texture and also a striking design element to the dress, while the cut out is very on trend. The bayleaf green is also such a great hue, and is a colour that’s a little unexpected for autumn. With the full, cascading effect of the skirt it’s a very feminine dress, which is also oh-so flattering to wear.

I wanted a colour that would really contrast and pop against the green, so I opted for a vibrant lavender bag by Louis Vuitton. It’s such a fun colour and the chunky gold chain strap gives it a modern touch. There were a few shoe options for this particular dress, but in the end I went for a pair of nude heels by Scanlan Theodore. It’s the ideal complementary hue to allow the dress’ colour to shine, while looking elegant and classic. I don’t leave the house without sunglasses, and today’s slimline pair are by Le Specs – a great transparent frame that adds a fun touch to this ensemble.

What I wore this week

21st April, 2022

From a wardrobe clear out to workout gear and my fave polished off duty looks, this week has seen it all. I’ve embraced a whole lot of colour while going for an all black look the next, but it’s always a good week when I’m able to wear my faves, but rework them in a new way, while also embracing some fun new additions. Here’s what I wore this week.

I’m taking part in Vinnies’ The Drop and this Lover trench is something I’m giving away. And I want you to snap it up! You can find more info here. A printed trench is such a great way to liven up a pared back look like jeans and a tee or as a statement topper over a dress. Either way, it’s such a fun designer piece to have you in your closet!

Once I find activewear that I love I like to grab a set in different colours. I’ve got this Year of Ours set in a neutral colour and am a huge fan because it’s comfy and provides great support but I could also walk out the door and wear this to grab a coffee. I like embracing different colours when it comes to activewear as wearing all black all the time just gets a little repetitive.

Jeans and a fun top is one fashion equation that always works. I’ve waxed lyrical about my love of denim this week so it’s no surprise that it always gets a workout in my weekly wardrobe rotation. I’m embracing more relaxed styles when it comes to jeans, but I always like to pair it with something more fitted at the top, such as this Manning Cartell halter top. Not only is the style a lot of fun, I’m always a fan of anything in Barbie pink!

I’ve really come around to wearing black trousers in a more casual way of late. I used to categorise them as being more of a dressy piece, but paired with a tee and sandals it really works to create a polished off duty look. Also, it’s one way to get more wear out of the trousers that you’d usually relegate for work or an occasion, and I’m a fan of being able to extend the use of pieces I already own.

What I wore this week

7th April, 2022

Another busy week meant a range of looks. I’m often juggling work events with school pick up so I try to keep that in mind whenever I’m pulling a look together as I don’t want to be overly dressed up to fetch the girls! Luckily, a lot of my wardrobe is quite simple and classic so sometimes all it takes is a shoe change here and there to make it ready for the transition into mum mode. Most of the time it’s all about a great pair of jeans and a nice top, matched with comfy shoes. While I love dressing up, I do enjoy the simplicity of my casual looks. Here’s what I wore this week…

Sometimes all you need is a pop of colour. This all white ensemble (rest assured I wasn’t on mum duty as the kids were at school!) had a fresh feel to it, enhanced by the corset top and wide leg silhouette of the pants. I knew I needed to enhance the look a little so it was all about this sky blue Acler trench. The addition of a bright hue actually allowed the features of this outfit to stand out as it provided a little contrast. I added a navy Bulgari bag to keep the look within the same colour family, and achieve a gradient effect.

I do an interation of this combination most weeks, this week it was all about a tailored shirt and denim. I love the billowy sleeves of this top which works well against the fitted silhouette of the jeans. While I accessorised with a forest green Dior tote bag to primarily carry all my essentials but also to add an accent colour to work against the more muted colour palette of the shirt and jeans. I added neutral Gucci slides to help tie the look together.

Told you I loved this combo! This time around, same jeans but with a different top. This Good American muscle tee with shoulder pads elevates my usual white tee option and gives it a more fashion-y spin. My ever reliable Ducie sandals and Dior tote were the perfect accessories for the day as they were both on trend yet functional. Banbe sunglasses from my friend and stylist Jess Pecoraro’s collaboration with the brand were the ideal frames to work back with this pared back ensemble.

Think pink! I love a good suit, and this look from Manning Cartell is a lot of fun. I wore the double breasted jacket done up so I could wear it almost as a top, while the bubblegum pink hue makes a statement. Meanwhile the neutral Burberry bag and heels allow the suit to take centre stage. Both are great pieces to have in my closet as they’re so easy to pair with multiple looks.

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: Rainbow Connection

16th November, 2021

I’ve always loved wearing Oscar De La Renta, simply because the brand’s designs are always so feminine and sophisticated, and always with a modern touch. This asymmetrical dress was part of the brand’s resortwear collection a few seasons ago and it’s everything a resort-style dress should be: fun, vibrant and a summer vacation personified. I immediately fell in love with the bold hues of this dress, from the sunny yellow to the sky blue. There’s something about a striped print that just feels so playful and energetic, and it just feels all the more dramatic when such a print features on a maxi dress. One shoulder styles are going to be everywhere this season, and it’s the neckline to try this spring/summer. This cotton dress is elevated further by the finishing details, from the fringed hem, to the beaded neckline. It just adds a little extra pizzazz and makes it the kind of piece you’ll feel extra special wearing.

Working with such a riot of colour, I wanted to keep the party going! So I opted for a pair of bright green strappy heels by Scanlan Theodore. I usually like having a common thread with my accessories and outfit, and in this instance the heels pick up the green in the dress nicely. If there’s one thing I highly recommend doing over summer, it’s to embrace vibrant accessories. From shoes to bags, don’t be afraid to dial up the colour and go all out. As a huge fan of all things colourful, it’s one of the things I love about dressing at this time of year—there’s licence to embrace all the colours of the rainbow.

What I Wore: Golden Hour

19th October, 2021

Wearing bold hues is often my shortcut to feeling a little more energised so I love this time of year when we tend to embrace a lot more vibrant colours. Camilla and Marc is one of my go-to brands for dresses, and I always turn to them at the start of spring and right before summer as I know I will always inevitably end up falling in love with something. I saw this dress and immediately thought of how fittingly it embraced the vibe at this time of year—the colour is bright and fun, the maxi silhouette perfect for wearing whilst enjoying the sunshine and the printed linen the perfect lightweight fabrication for the balmy weather ahead. Also, the cut out details give it a little something extra, a standout feature that elevates it beyond just an ordinary sundress.

Working with such a bold colour, I could’ve taken the path of tempering it a little by incorporating more subdued accessories but in this case it was about leaning into it a whole lot more! These tangerine heels by Scanlan Theodore are just the right shade of show-stopping orange to work as the perfect colour companion to this dress. Dialling up the vibrancy certainly added a little extra energy to my look. Continuing with the gold theme, I added a stack of gold chain necklaces to add a statement element to my look. Whenever I’m working with a silhouette that’s decidedly very feminine, I like to embrace bolder accessories to offset the softer vibe of my outfit. Finishing of this look were these aviator glasses which added a modern, on trend piece to my outfit.

What I Wore: Everest Day

16th October, 2021

It feels so good to be back trackside after so many months away. I was back on reporting duties for 7 Racing at today’s Everest Day at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse and was so thrilled to be back doing what I love. Not to mention dressing up again! After months of living in loungewear and activewear it felt great to be putting on a nice outfit and all the rituals that go with a big event. Having my hair and makeup done and the lovely feeling that comes from feeling polished and put together is something that I’ve really missed. And what a look to kick things off with!

This white Scanlan Theodore midi dress has the most beautiful texture — the overlay resembles a cluster of flowers and in a crisp white I feel it just pops. It goes to show how a simple silhouette with just the right finishing touches can really elevate a look and give it some extra personality. Working with white is the perfect canvas for adding interesting accessories, and often it’s the perfect excuse to go bold. So I did. These cornflower blue heels, also by Scanlan Theodore were the perfect splash of colour this look needed and added an extra fun touch. As far as accessories go, I kept my hair sleek and simple, but added two Fendi hairclips to finish off the look. While a navy Fendi pouch was just the right elegant accessory to carry all my essentials, and teal sunglasses offered an extra hint of drama, perfectly offset by the freshness of the dress. All in all, a great ensemble to kick off the return to being at the races. Bring on more days like this!

What I Wore: Golden Slipper

27th March, 2021

Having embraced plenty of colour with my racing looks over the last few weeks, I wanted to steer things in a different direction this week and went for classic black. Wearing black is always a failsafe option as it’s virtually impossible to get it wrong, but it can sometimes look a little flat so I’ve always found it’s important to choose pieces with a little extra personality whether it be design details, textures or embellishments. So, this Dion Lee dress was the perfect option. It’s a classic strapless silhouette, but I think the cut-outs give it some edge and allow it to make a statement. The midi length is also perfect for racewear as it maintains a polished vibe.

Headwear is of course one of the key considerations of a race day look so I opted for a hat with veil — perfect for a wet weather day in Sydney, plus it helps ground the look. As the dress is quite detailed in its style, the outfit needed something structured and simple. As for the rest of my look, I opted for a burgundy Christian Dior bag to add a little colour, but also the strap is gold which I thought was a nice nod to it being Golden Slipper day. I wanted a closed toe shoe option for this look, so these dainty pumps by Fendi were the right accessory to finish off the look, and had me ready for another busy day of reporting trackside.
