Such an exciting week this week! I was so thrilled to be able to announce that I am the ATC 2019 Autumn Racing ambassador. As Sydney racing has such a special place in my heart I’m particularly excited to be taking on this role. Plus as a bonus I was able to have Sophia and Grace join in on all the activity which is always great when you’re a working mum and are able to combine work and family.
I was in between meetings this week when I found the most gorgeous petal chair at furniture store Matt Blatt. Needless to say it was one of those pieces that was totally Insta-worthy and I couldn’t resist snapping a few pics. What do you think? Do I need this chair in my life?
This week I uncovered a new favourite look which I shared here. These mint green pants by Zimmermann and the embroidered top to complement it has been getting quite the workout of late.
Also I was able to shoot with my girls for a collab I did with Sally Hansen which was really nice. As a working mum it’s always when my worlds collide a bit and I can spend time with Sophia and Grace and still call it work. It was fun teaming up with with Sally Hansen to try a few of their great colours because I discovered a new fave called ‘Pink and Harmony’ which is just the right pink shade to take me through to autumn/winter.
It was all about love this week as I hosted a few of my fave girls to a Galentine’s Day dinner… but never fear I didn’t forget Luke! We enjoyed a belated Valentine’s Day dinner at one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney, Rosetta.
I was also lucky enough to attend the Sail GP event on Sydney Harbour which if you’re not familiar with it is a supercharged version of sailing. I had a great time on the water and it certainly was an exciting sport to watch.
Who’s looking for some new wardrobe inspo? Now that we’re all fully back into the swing of things—holidays are over, school’s back, work is well underway, it can be the perfect time for a little style injection. So whether you’re looking something to take your office look up notch or a great ensemble to try on the weekend, I’ve rounded up a few outfits that are work bookmarking the next time you feel you’re in a fashion rut.
Mix classic and casual
A printed button down shirt and jeans makes for the ideal effortless and chic outfit that you can wear for myriad occasions.
A little black and white never goes astray. Try a monochrome palette the next time you’re feeling stuck for an outfit, I guarantee it’s always unfailingly stylish.
Say it loud and proud
A slogan tee always adds a fun element to any look. Whether it’s your favourite brand or a phrase or word you adore, letting your clothes do the talking is a playful take on casual dressing.
Turn up the volume
Neutrals have their place but sometimes you just want to turn up the vibrancy. Prints worked back with a bold, solid colour make for an eye-catching look that’s not over the top.
Keep it simple
Sometimes the best style formulas are still the most simple. A plain tee, with denim shorts and minimalist sandals looks relaxed and effortless.
Go back to basics
Never underestimate the simplest pieces in your closet. A white singlet and shorts is an often utilised combination but when dressed up with an accessory or two such as a belt and a necklace, it’s super stylish.
Clash your prints
You can always call on Olivia Palermo to demonstrate just how amazing clashing prints can be. When trying this look just be sure to have similar colours in each print to allow the look to flow.
Stripe it up
Stock up on a few striped shirts in your wardrobe—they’re easily one of the best shortcuts to making anything from jeans to skirts adopt a little Parisian flair.
Keep it tonal
Using the same colour in various shades can make for an impactful look.
Add a headpiece
You don’t always have to save headpieces for the races! A great accessory like a statement headband or embellished clips, or even a scarf can turn an ordinary outfit into something more.
Whether it’s stacking necklaces or bracelets or earrings, wearing a cluster of jewellery is one way to elevate a look with minimal fuss.
Try a statement midi skirt
I’m a huge fan of a midi skirt because I think it looks classic and sophisticated. However to avoid it looking too sedate, try one in a great print. Animal print, stripes, polka dots… go forth and embrace a bold pattern.
But what better way to end an eventful week than with a long weekend. I’ve been having a relaxing time time Luke and the girls, whilst enjoying a beverage or two. That’s what long weekends are for right?
Welcome to the week that was. I like to hit pause on everything and just relax and make the most of time with my family at this time of year not surprisingly my Instagram account has been a little quiet.
I think the below photos sum up the last week or so though—just chilling out and enjoying time with my great loves. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things though and seeing what exciting things 2019 has in store. I hope the new year is treating you all well!
