What I wore this week

26th October, 2023

Getting dressed some weeks, I can clearly see a trend emerging and this week it was all about a monochrome colour palette. Some weeks, it’s easiest to just lean into colours that I know are guaranteed to work and black and white are two hues that are foolproof. I mixed and matched throughout the week, and it was all really effortless – I highly recommend when it’s a busy time and you just need to get dressed on autopilot. Here’s what I wore this week.

Love this Rachel Gilbert tee and it’s cheeky design which is raising funds for the Sydney Breast Cancer Foundation. Also, the Anna Quan tailored pants are still going strong! I’ve worn these the last few weeks and can’t get enough of them. Great cut and fit and they go with everything. These Camilla and Marc slides with the shearling trim is such a great transeasonal shoe—I can keep my feet warm without overheating when the temperature gets warmer later in the day.

I technically packed this while I was away but didn’t manage to grab a pic this week but it’s so good I wanted to share it. It’s a such a simple, streamlined design and works well with heels and sandals so it’s a goodie for travel. I’ve had these Gucci slides for several years now and they’re always in rotation because they go with everything. A good one to keep in mind in case you’re on the look out for a splurge shoe.

Keeping a look tonal is a great way to do a casual look outfit but with an elevated finish. These Viktoria and Woods jeans are a good wide leg cut that works with flats or heels or sneakers. They’re easily dressed up or down making them ultra wearable. Also, I shared this Joslin jumper in another post as part of a set but it works equally as well on its own.

Another tonal look (and outing for the Anna Quan pants!) with this all black ensemble. I needed something dressy so these wide leg pants and top plus heels made for an easy outfit. Also, I’m loving the size of this quilted Chanel bag, it’s a good one for carrying my essentials but not overly big so I can wear it in place of a clutch to an event.

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.

All the looks I wore on my trip to the Gold Coast

16th October, 2023

As part of a partnership with QANTAS, I was lucky enough to spend a few nights on the sunny Gold Coast recently. Even better was the fact I was able to be joined by some friends during the trip. We explored a lot of the area, checking out some great dining spots, and also indulging in some relaxation by the pool and at the spa. It was a great way to unwind after the craziness of the school holidays! Whenever I’m on a trip, I enjoy planning my wardrobe as much as I do my activities as I find it’s all part of the novelty of being away. So, here’s what I packed with me for a few days in Queensland.

This is a great LBD from Scanlan Theodore. It’s such a simple, sleek design that can be dressed up or down and can easily be transformed or reworked according to the occasion. The strapless neckline and subtle flare give it a glam feel, and it’s so pared back that I could go all out with my shoes. Mach & Mach are known for their embellished, elaborate designs, and this pair certainly brings all the sparkle.

Yes, I am a big fan of quite a few things in Scanlan Theodore’s latest collection because this dress is also new addition to my wardrobe. For a boat day, I wanted something comfy yet classic and this taupe maxi with its flared skirt and belted waist definitely fit the brief. I finished this look off with some of my fave necklaces and cat-eye sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman.

For a day at the spa/pool, I threw on this cover up by Sir. It’s a great chocolate brown colour and the mesh fabric works beautifully with a high waisted style bikini. I glammed it up with a mini bamboo handle bag by Gucci and my trusty white Gucci slides.

There’s something about an off-the-shoulder neckline that I can never resist. I love the knotted straps on this maxi, and they drape at just the right spot – not annoying like some off-the-shoulder styles. I went with a pop of colour via my amber sunglasses to help lift the chocolate brown hue.

I’m a big believer that when you find a great style that works for you, get it in another colour. Hence, this Scanlan Theodore dress, which is a similar silhouette as my black dress, but in a vibrant yellow. It’s a great hue for summer and works well against a pair of metallic sandals.

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.

5 pieces I love from the Scanlan Theodore sale

24th February, 2023

It’s always an exciting day when one of my fave brands goes on sale, and Scanlan Theodore is definitely up there for me as a constant go-to. The brand’s aesthetic is always on point, the tailoring immaculate and the styles are always on trend with a classic twist. I regularly turn to Scanlan Theodore for race day pieces, along with occasion wear and office attire so if there’s an opportunity to stock up, I’m there! Luckily the brand currently has a sale on and you can get a further 20% off sale items, so if your wardrobe needs a restock, then now is the time to check it out.

Sale time is great but it’s also worth being smart about the choices you introduce into your wardrobe—if you end up being unable to wear something in the long run it ends up becoming a very expensive exercise! I’d highly recommend investing in pieces that will have longevity, and Scanlan Theodore always has a great range of tailored pieces that are designed to be mixed and matched. That said, they always do beautiful occasion wear, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for a statement piece if you’ve got a big event on the horizon.

I recently paid a visit to the store and tried on a few different things. Below are some of the outfits that made it onto my wish list.

Tailored Italian Jacket

This suit is all kinds of fun. Neons are trending right now, and this jacket and skirt combination is a great option for an on trend take on suiting. If I was wearing this to an event, I’d wear the jacket buttoned up like I have above for a sexy take on tailoring.

Pleated Rib V Neck Dress

Ribbed knit dresses have become quite a regular feature in my wardrobe because they’re really versatile and easily able to be dressed up or down. I love the flattering V-neck of this particular style, plus the matching tie makes for a great cinched in silhouette. The thing with this fabric is it’s lightweight and drapes beautifully so it’s the perfect go-to during summer (or pop on a blazer when the weather starts to cool down).

Tinsel Mini Dress

See what I mean about event wear? This tinsel dress certainly makes a statement and is perfect for a big occasion. Love the party-ready silver and the embellishment. Also it has a structured finish which achieves a really flattering effect. If you’re looking to splash out on a mini dress that has plenty of sparkle, this should be on your radar.

Double Cotton JacketSpaghetti Strap Sandal

This is a similar cut to the neon green ensemble, but in a more practical neutral. The cut and length of the jacket is great and perfect when worn as part of a set, or separately. I could see myself pairing this with a pair of jeans or tailored pants. The pink strappy shoes are playful and fun and add a on trend vibe to the sleek aesthetic of the suit.

Happy New Year everyone! I’m currently in post-Christmas, school holiday mode so my looks have really been featuring everything from comfy dresses to polished tailoring to cater to the different things currently in the calendar. But what I’ve discovered in the process is that I’m really in love with a number of different pieces that I introduced to my summer wardrobe. It goes to show how good a little forward planning is at it’s meant that I currently have a really wearable warm weather wardrobe with a lot of versatility.

This fawn maxi is a great one to see me through so many different occasions. It’s ultra comfortable and has become a bit of an easy staple to throw on when I’m spending the day with the girls. I often pair it with a pair of slides and a cute bag and I’m done. The colour is also quite versatile given it’s a neutral.

I am really into great tailored pants at the moment and I’ve found they’re a style that can easily be dressed up or down. In this instance, I wore these pants with a strapless top to give it a more on trend feel. Accessorising called for simple pieces, so I went with a nude heel by Scanlan Theodore and a mini Gucci Jackie bag.

Matching pyjama sets are huge this season so I have been wholeheartedly embracing them. There’s so many options to choose from! I love them in a nice flowy fabric for an easy breezy feel, and a vibrant print. I have been using them as a go-to for the event wear as they look polished, but feels very on trend.

A colourful mini dress is very much a summer staple of late. I love the print of this Manning Cartell dress as it’s such a punchy pattern and makes a statement. It’s a great go-to for event wear. I went for neutral accessories like this white Strathberry bag and nude Scanlan heels to complement the vivid hues in the dress and let the colour shine.

What I wore this week

1st December, 2022

December means it’s officially party season time so I thought I’d do a round up of a few of my event looks of late. From the races to a wedding to launches, I’ve embraced the full gamut of occasion attire over the last few weeks. The one thing it proves is that you really can take event wear in so many different directions, as I’ve gone for pants and a top for one occasion while another event called for a slinky cocktail dress. I think the only rule with event dressing is to enjoy it and have fun! Here’s what I wore.

I did a shoot for a racing event and ended up falling in love with this fuchsia gown by Aje. The signature oversized puff sleeve worked back with an asymmetrical hemline really amped up the glam factor and made a statement. With simple nude heels and a headband, I think this look could work for so many different events.

For those who remember doing pants and a nice top for a night out back in the day you’ll be glad to meet its more modern incarnation. Love this off the shoulder top by Aje, which is so beautifully theatrical — it’s almost a wearable work of art. Definitely ticks the box when it comes to a nice top. Meanwhile wide leg slacks offer a more tailored, pared back counterpart to the dramatic nature of the top.

I wore this stunning maxi dress to the Gucci launch, which not only was such a gorgeous interpretation of a floral dress, but it also was a way to show my support for the brand. Paired with a Gucci textured bag, and a pair of ornate heels, this look was all about embracing a feminine style but adding a few high end touches.

I wore this to a friend’s wedding and it had me channelling my inner mermaid — the kids certainly loved it for that reason! The laser cut detail on this Manning Cartell dress is insane — it added such a gorgeous texture to the look. Plus the wrap design is ultra flattering. I didn’t want to take away from the wow factor of the dress so stuck to nude heels to keep things clean and simple.

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.
