First day of summer! Having just emerged from a heatwave in Sydney, it’s nice that the weather is going to get back to milder temperatures this week. I’m particularly excited to break out this look. It’s a casual denim outfit but has a polished feel to it which I love. This jacket and skirt by Acler is the kind of thing that works perfectly together but even better apart. I can see myself wearing this skirt throughout summer and the denim jacket will come in handy for cooler summer nights.
I can’t think of a better hue to pair with denim than a nice crisp white. I love a trusty white button down shirt to add a dressy element to a look, and the roomy, slightly oversized silhouette of this Anna Quan shirt has a relaxed feel which is a great way to achieve some balance.
Paired with some fun accessories, this look is definitely going to be bookmarked for many an outing. These white Bottega Veneta slides are the latest addition to my summer wardrobe and I’ve already found them to be really versatile and easily work back with so many other pieces in my closet. A pair of classic RayBans and a cylindrical bag by Strathberry are the final finishing touches — both have a classic feel but still have fashion forward elements that elevate them.

We had a glimpse of summer over the weekend in Sydney and it got me excited to start delving into my spring/summer wardrobe. As if I needed further proof that co-ord sets are quickly becoming one of my fave go-to looks, along comes this Bec and Bridge outfit. This look is a modern take on the traditional safari suit and is such a fun option for spring/summer. The cropped top and pants work together to create a fresh silhouette while the the neutral hue is the perfect versatile shade for when the weather starts to warm up. Also I love the button detailing which provides the ideal finishing touch. Additionally, both pieces can work separately with other things in my wardrobe ensuring they’re able to do double duty.
This look is quite polished so I wanted to add accessories in keeping with that vibe, but given it’s quite a pared back ensemble, I also wanted to add a few accoutrements that would add a little energy to it. Enter this tasseled bag by Strathberry. The bright pop of orange and oversized tassels add a funky element and add a nice hit of colour. Meanwhile I opted for a pair of simple white Gucci thongs to keep things understated while these square frame Karen Walker sunglasses are going to become quite a regular feature of my summer wardrobe.
