What I wore this week

4th February, 2021

It’s funny when I do these posts as I’ll often look back over the pics and realise I’ve had an ongoing theme throughout the week. I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time but based on the below, I’ve certainly been embracing a neutrals/beige/brown colour palette over the last few days. And with good reason because it’s so easy to mix and match pieces working with these hues. So here’s what I wore during my autumnal meets summer hues week…

This outfit has a bit of a 70s vibe to it and I’m totally embracing it. The chocolate brown halter neck top is polished and perfectly suited for a Sydney summer. While these tailored pants by Viktoria and Woods help brighten up this outfit, and worked back with the sleek white thongs, it’s such an easy, comfortable look.

One of my all-time fave dress labels is Steele as I cannot resist every time they have a new drop. You know when a brand just gets your aesthetic? Theirs is my summer vibe to a tee. This dress is unbelievably comfy and such an easy, don’t-wan’t-to-think outfit option.

I’m planning to wear these jeans to just about everything for the next little while as they’re so versatile and easily paired back with virtually every top I have in my closet. Paired with my Gucci sandals (as an aside, these shoes have been worth every cent as the cost per wear has been so good) and a simple tee, it’s simple and effortless dressing—just the way I like it.

Meet my fave new dress. I’m loving the new drop by Camilla and Marc, and this dress was love at first sight. I can easily wear this doing the school run, out to lunch, or running errands as it’s such a classic design. Plus guess which shoes made another outing this week?

What I wore this week

14th January, 2021

Who else is finding it hard to get back into the swing of things post-Christmas? I’ve been easing myself back into it, but it’s still been a mixture of work, spending time with the girls during the school holidays and the generally trying to settle into routine again.

So needless to say my outfit repertoire has been quite mixed. I’ve gone from family mornings at the beach, to time in front of my laptop to general errand running and it’s allowed me to bring out a few fave pieces but also incorporate some new favourites into the mix.

I love comfy looks at the beach and this has become my go-to because it’s so easy and effortless. The pants and top can be worn separately too, making them really versatile. While this straw hat is a must as it offers great protection from the sun. I’ve been using this straw bag as my carryall all summer, and I love its versatility as it works just as well at the beach as it does out to lunch. A pair of sunnies is the perfect finishing look.

Dresses are my shortcut to looking polished throughout summer. I love the print on this Camilla and Marc look, while a sunny yellow and white clutch by Lucy Folk is the perfect pop of colour.

One of my top brands for dresses in summer is Steele. The designs and prints are always really feminine and fun. This checked dress with shirring has been such a fave of mine throughout the last few weeks.

I felt like wearing something sleek on this day so a black dress it was. I kept the rest of the look quite simple, with sandals and my fave LV backpack. An all black look can sometimes look flat so I added statement gold jewellery to give my outfit a little lift.

What I Wore: Pretty in Pink

1st October, 2019

Is there anything more fun than wearing anything in a bubble gum pink? I’m a huge fan of the colour for its playful and feminine vibe so I was immediately sold on this midi dress by Steele. Not only is a midi length frock the right balance of classic and polished, the rest of the design with its rolled cuffs, cinched waist and oversized pockets is right on trend and gives it a slightly more edgy feel.

With a dress such as this I think it’s only fitting to let the colour do the talking. Whilst I wanted accessories that still popped, I didn’t want it to compete too much with the main attraction so I kept to a similar colour palette with a metallic pink Bvlgari bag. A pair of classic Tods loafers added a dressy touch, with the shoes also offering a nice contrast the feminine vibe of my ensemble.

When it comes to playing with colour I think vibrant shades are always a great way to lift an outfit and make a statement. And how can you go wrong when such a fun hue is involved?

What I Wore: Prints Charming

26th April, 2019

Lately I’ve been really embracing the printed dress. There’s something appealing about an outfit that looks pulled together with minimal effort, especially as most days I’m rushing around trying to get out the door. This dress by Steele manages to incorporate my love of a monochrome colour palette and bold prints. The mixed animal print and split make this midi dress a fun option for both day and night. By changing up my accessories I can easily tailor it to a work event in the day and dinner at night.

I wanted to keep the black and white theme going so I decided on simple black accessories. My fave Prada bag and Aquazzura heels provided the ideal complementary accoutrements as they both allowed the dress to shine. A pair of white sunglasses add a playful touch to this modern look and provide a contrast to the otherwise simple vibe I’ve gone for with my bag and heels. This outfit will easily become a go-to in the months to come.

What I Wore: Ombré Pink

17th October, 2017

There are times when an outfit of mine comes together based on a particular print or colour. In this instance the graduating pink tones of my Rebecca de Ravenel drop earrings had me wanting to wear the hue from top to toe. I find that playing with colour is often a great way to create a look that’s vibrant and impactful. Taking inspiration from the ombre effect of my earrings I wanted to incorporate light to dark shades in my ensemble, starting with the pastel pink shade of this Steele dress which provided the perfect canvas to build the rest of my look. I opted for blush toned bag and shoes to add a slightly deeper colour whilst my candy pink embellished Gucci sunglasses added a a fun touch while still keeping within the palette I was going for. The overall gradient effect is a playful way to wear this ultra feminine tone and is a styling trick that can be done with so many other colours, so it’s able to be carried out across my entire wardrobe. But there’s just something about pink that I’m really loving at the moment…
