What I Wore: The Summer Suit

5th December, 2023

Suiting in summer? Absolutely. You don’t have to relegate a suit to something for cooler temperatures with vests very much on trend this season. A sleeveless option, worked back with pants still embodies the sleek, polished feel of suiting but minus the overheating element! Since we’re due to have quite a hot summer, it’s a great look to turn to when you need something dressy for an event or simply want to summer-fy office attire. This set by Sir has been on repeat in my closet as it works for so many different occasions. It’s a favourite of mine as the longline vest feels a little more sleek than a typical waistcoat, and worked back with a matching pant, the outfit embraces the tailored feel of a suit.

I worked the above set back with a pair of strappy Bottega Veneta heels to give my outfit more of an event vibe, plus it helps to add more of a fashion element rather than it looking too corporate. A pop of colour in the form of a structured crossbody by Longchamp and cat eye sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman and is one way to give a playful edge to a suit in the summer time.

What I Wore: Mini Moments

21st November, 2023

With summer officially just around the corner, one of my fave things is adding a few new summery frocks into my fashion rotation when I’m switching my wardrobe over. Aussie brands do summer staples really well (with our climate, I think it’s a must) so I tend to shop local labels when I’m on a dress hunt. Sir is one of my favourites as they do really on trend pieces, and their collections often feature bold, eye-catching prints and interesting design touches. This monochrome mini dress is so perfect for balmy Sydney days, and a great piece to take on tropical getaways. It’s also part of a set, so it can be worn as a top with the matching wide leg pants which makes it a great versatile option. I could envision this dress being a go-to for dinner and drinks or an event. Also, black and white is such an easy colour combination to work with so it’s definitely the kind of dress that can be reimagined into different outfits by switching out my shoes or accessories.

I took the dressy route for this outfit, so I opted for a pair of strappy Tony Bianco heels adorned with a leather camellia for an elevated touch. These shoes are such a fun party shoe, and in black it’s so easy to work them back with different ensembles. Raffia/straw bags are one of theĀ accessories of summer and this Longchamp Box-Trot crossbody bag is a more refined way to do that basket bag look, as it is quite structured and features great statement hardware. I’ve been wearing these Vehla sunglasses non-stop, and while the gold pair I’m wearing is out of stock, there’s a pair with amber lenses which is equally as great. Bring on summer!

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

15th June, 2023

It’s the week for a round up of the more dressy looks I’ve worn of late. Events, interviews and work commitments have given me the perfect excuse to break out a few of my fave pieces, plus some new additions. The theme seems to be that I’m in my suiting season right now, as I cannot get enough of this style staple. The great thing about it is that it can be worn in so many different iterations, so whether it’s a traditional suit or a vest and pants set there’s nothing a suit can’t work for. Here’s what I wore this week.

Alaia have released an ‘Editions’ collection which features designs from their archives dating from 1981 – 2017 and this ultra flattering bodysuit is from that range. It’s on the exxy side but the quality and fit is amazing. It’s made from a stretch knit which is comfy and achieves a really smooth line, while the off the shoulder silhouette is one of my faves as it’s ultra flattering. I wore this with a simple pair of black trousers from SIR and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. You can’t beat an all black ensemble for hitting all the right notes when it comes to looking polished.

I love a suiting moment of any kind and Rebecca Vallance always does a great suit. This oatmeal coloured set feels very fresh and modern and gives this suit a lightweight feel. I like the fact suits are able to be worn in so many different ways to change up their look and feel, and this time around I decided to wear the jacket buttoned up to act as more of a top rather than a jacket. However a quick addition of a white tank underneath plus white sneakers and it immediately gives it an on trend vibe. The versatility factor definitely contributes to my love of suiting.

I do like the current trend of vests worn with tailored pants which gives a suit a more modern spin. Hot tip: check out Seed’s tailored options. I got this set from there and it definitely has the upmarket feel of bespoke tailoring minus the price tag. I wore this with my Bottega Veneta heels to give it a more feminine vibe, but if I wanted to dress it down I could definitely get away with wearing this set with sneakers.

I was doing a try on session at Camilla and Marc and came upon this super cute dress. I love the ruching detail down the middle which adds a point of interest while the maxi hem gives it an elegant feel. I went with a simple pair of heels in this instance as I liked its understated vibe.
