What I Wore: Seed Heritage Spring Racing Luncheon

4th October, 2019

Spring racing is upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking of what to wear trackside. Putting together a race day outfit can become expensive if you have to factor in every aspect of your look from a dress to shoes, jewellery and accessories. I’m all about finding ways to make it a more cost effective exercise, which is why I was thrilled to host Seed Heritage’s Spring Racing Luncheon. The whole event was about showcasing beautiful race day looks that were elegant and on trend and would definitely elevate your next ensemble at the races.

I wore a co-ord set from the collection, featuring a plissé finish which was both polished and sophisticated. The crisp white colour is also ideal for spring, giving the entire look a fresh feel that’s perfect for this time of year. I always like to err on the side of conservative with any race day looks and the midi length of the skirt and the long balloon sleeves are a way to to do this whilst still looking on trend.

I went for a few accessories which all added an element of interest to my look. A pair of mules with a transparent strap offered an edgy feature to my outfit. I then worked a pearl headband and pearl hoops into my ensemble to complement the classic feel of the set, whilst a white shoulder bag offered the perfect finishing touch.

10 things worth checking out from… Seed

25th July, 2019

I have my go-to brands when it comes to buying affordable on trend updates and Seed Heritage is definitely one of them. I love how they do pieces that are modern and of the moment but with a classic twist. This winter they’ve done a great range of cosy knits and jackets, along with year round staples such as denim and tees. If you’re in the market for a style update, here are 10 pieces that are definitely worth checking out.

Teddy Jacket

The teddy coat is a huge trend at the moment and is the perfect winter warmer. I love the fawn colour of this particular bomber—the ideal shade for this time of year.

Core Slouchy Tee

A white tee is a must in any wardrobe. This shape and fit is perfect for mixing and matching with various looks.

Fleece Puffer Jacket

When you’re faced with a chilly winter morning there’s no better item to snuggle up in than a puffy coat. Love the khaki shade of this particular jacket.

Full Sleeve Jacquard Dress

You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. The simple, classic design of this dress is the ideal staple to have in your wardrobe.

Wool Blend Blazer

A blazer is a must in any wardrobe and lately it’s been great to have one in a few different shades. I love the cut of this—a sleek and modern iteration of one of my favourite style basics.

A cosy jumper can be worn in so many different ways and this cable knit with its billowy sleeves adds an element of interest to many an outfit.

Luxe Textured Coat

My fave brands on a budget

3rd July, 2019

Whilst I’m all for investing in certain pieces in my wardrobe that I want to have longevity such as bags, shoes and coats, I tend to scrimp on trend items that I know may only last a season or two. It’s fun to update my look with a few key of-the-moment items but it doesn’t make sense to me to spend loads on them. Australia has a great selection of chain stores of local and overseas brands so I’ve learnt that you can easily snap up trendy pieces that won’t break the bank. Here are a few of my go-tos when I’m looking for an inexpensive fashion fix.

Zara

Who doesn’t love Zara? They’re great for runway inspired pieces so you can often find some really up-to-the-minute looks at a fraction of the price. I also like that their designs are often on trend, but interpreted in such a simple, unfussy way that they can easily be worked back with pieces you already own.

H&M

Whilst H&M is great for simple basics like tees and jeans, I also like the fact that they have some really contemporary designs that are fun. If I’m ever looking to dabble in a trend that I know won’t last beyond a season, I’ve found that snapping up something from H&M will often allow me to do so without breaking the bank.

Seed Heritage

Seed often stock a lot of really beautiful pieces that are classic and polished, which is exactly what draws me to this brand. They often feature most of the popular trends in their range, but you can also find dressy pieces for work and after dark at an accessible price point.

Witchery 

Witchery‘s great for classic pieces that are ultra wearable. They often have quite understated designs which makes most of their range quite versatile. Also they stock things such as blazers, slacks and jumpers which look upmarket and expensive but are at a far cheaper price point than taking the designer route.

Uniqlo

I’ve got several pieces from Uniqlo in my closet that are still going strong. And I think it’s because they do simple really well. From t-shirts to knits, pants and dresses, everything is really understated which extends the wearability of anything from their range. I also like that they incorporate natural fabrics such as wool, cotton and even cashmere into their range but price it quite reasonably.

What I Wore: Picnic Time

12th March, 2018

One of the best things about having two daughters is without a doubt the cute outfits. There are just so many options out there. From beautiful tutus to adorable prints and accessories, it’s so fun being able to play dress ups with them. I like to mix it up a bit as far as Sophia and Grace‘s outfits go. They can go from quite casual one minute to dressed up the next and I always like to play with textures and colour. For our little picnic the girls’ Seed outfits are the ideal mix of whimsical and sweet, with fun, playful touches such as sparkly sneakers for Sophia and a punchy pop of colour in the form of a marigold jumper for Grace. Also anything that involves wings and tulle is always a winner with my kids!

There’s something about being with Sophia and Grace (must be all that tulle!) that inspires me to go for more feminine looks, and in this instance I was definitely drawn to the colour pink. I found this pastel pink Seed top and pleated skirt was the ideal combination of classic and relaxed dressing—perfect for when I’m in mum mode. I often like outfits that stick to the same colour palette as I find it makes for quite a striking overall effect. This must be why I couldn’t think of any other shoes I wanted to pair with this ensemble other than metallic pink loafers. Not only are they quite the statement shoe, as an added bonus, they’re comfy too.

The baby clothing brands I love as a mum

12th March, 2015

sapling

Now that I have two wardrobes to look after (mine and Sophia’s!) I’ve managed to find a few baby go-to fashion brands that I love. Much like I have my fave brands for particular styles, I have some brands that I consistently turn to when I’m pulling together outfits for Sophia. It’s often more fun to go shopping for her – the clothes are just so ridiculously cute! Here’s what’s at the top of my list:

Sapling Child

This was featured on my list of fave online stores because not only do they do great clothes, they also do everything in organic fabrics.

Purebaby

I’m a big fan of buying organic clothing and Purebaby has a really great range of cute organic clothes. Often the hard part is just trying to narrow down the list of items I want to buy!

Bonds

What mum doesn’t love Bonds? As far as basics go, I can’t go past this Aussie brand. Since Sophia tends to outgrow things quite quickly it’s nice to be able to grab a few key basic items at a reasonable price.

Other favourite’s include: Country Road, Marquise, Cotton On Kids, Kym T shoesJacadi Paris & Seed Heritage.

What are your fave baby brands? Is there one I should definitely add to my list?
