Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week

4th August, 2022

It’s still all about winter dressing but this week in Sydney we did experience what felt like a glorious spring day which was a nice reprieve from the cold weather. I’m still embracing so many winter warmers in my closet and am having fun rediscovering that part of my wardrobe again after my holiday break. I had a few appointments and meetings this week so I embraced a lot of dressy, elevated looks but luckily I was still able to incorporate some casual ensembles in the mix. Here’s what I wore this week.

Back into winter gear and loving tonal ensembles. I’ve always found layering varying shades but in a similar colour family achieves a really impactful look. I layered a few earthy pieces here and found it added some warmth to my outfit. Also, I’m not sure about you but I loved the break from constantly wearing pants or jeans throughout winter by doing a midi skirt/boots combination. I highly recommend it for keeping warm, but taking your outfit in a different direction.

Doing another take on the skirt/boots combination with this head to toe look from Seed. I wore this look to host an event for Seed earlier in the year and found it be a great go-to look for when I’ve got a meeting or event to attend. Once again I’m embracing tonal hues, but I also love doing crisp whites in winter. It’s a little more unexpected as far as winter hues go and it adds a level of freshness. Loving the resurgence of the knee high boot, it’s definitely a great way to dress up many an outfit.

This outfit ties into my motto of ‘off duty wear but keep it polished’. Jeans and a white shirt have always been my go-to when it comes to casual wear, but I wanted to take it up a notch so paired it with this Camilla and Marc trench. It’s comfy yet chic and something I do quite often whenever I’m doing a jeans and tee pairing throughout the cooler months. I went for a simple pair of white sneakers and added a Louis Vuitton top handle bag to help me carry all my essentials around for the day.

This was a shoot day and I felt in the mood to dress up a little so went with this puff sleeve top by Aje and an Anna Quan mini. I’ve worn both pieces so many times and have really managed to maximise the cost per wear on both of them. Being on my feet most of the day, I went for flat Chanel slingbacks to stay comfortable but polished at the same time.

It’s always fun reflecting on outfits past and I always either find a new combination to love or it sparks an idea on how to style it in a different way. This week it’s been another mixed week in terms of what I needed on the outfit front. I’ve gone from workout gear one minute to dressed up for a meeting the next. The constant is that a few old faves are still going strong (my Bottega Veneta heels for one thing) and pieces that have just entered the picture are slowly proving themselves to have the ability to revamp my existing wardrobe. Here’s what I wore this week.

Comfy playsuits for the win! This little number is a handy go-to on those days when I want something that is ultra comfortable yet still looks put together. The burgundy is a great hue for spring/summer and the shirt style top and cinched waist are really flattering. I paired it my fave Prada bucket bag for the ideal comfy casual ensemble.

I can’t resist a matching set when it comes to working out. There’s something quite motivating about wearing something cute when you’re training and this matching top and leggings is a new fave. The coco hue is also such an unexpected hue in exercise gear, and paired with black sneakers and a crossbody Furla bag, I was ready to go straight from my workout to coffee.

These tailored pants have been such a worthy new addition to my wardrobe. I’ve found them to be so versatile and I can easily dress them up or down. I’ve worn these pants twice this week and each time I’ve been able to change up the vibe with just a change in what I pair it with. On this day I went for something a bit more casual with a tie dye tank and thongs—ultra comfy with on trend elements.

Here are the pants again! I was able to take them in a different direction by simply changing the kind of top I wore and popping on heels. I adore this top. The cornflower blue is such a pretty shade and the halter style and ribbed fabric is such a great combination. I wore it in a dressy way on this occasion but I could easily pair it with jeans or shorts and it could be more off duty appropriate. These mesh Bottega Veneta heels are such an interesting statement shoe and I always find they really elevate an outfit.

What I Wore This Week

27th January, 2022

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things on the work front so it’s been a mixture of getting dressed up for those events, while also being at the tail end of the school holidays and living in my favourite casual gear. There’s a lot of new pieces I’m keen to wear and I’m excited to roll them out over the coming weeks but I also have a newfound appreciation for my go-tos. These are the pieces that I wear most of the time and are in constant rotation because of how comfortable and versatile they are. Here’s what I wore this week.

I am loving how fun suiting has become. This is one of my faves by Acler, as the cut is spot on and so flattering while the rust colour is an unexpected hue as far as suits go. This Viktoria and Woods bustier top is currently one of my faves as it’s so easy to pair with multiple pieces. I’ve been able to dress it up or down, and it looks polished each time. I finished this look with my go-to Bottega Veneta heels and a structured clutch by Oroton.

Loving this elevated casual look. This Christopher Esber top is such an interesting style with the dual rings and cut-outs, I also love the olive hue. These Slvrlake jeans have also been a great summer staple, the crisp white colour is the perfect base to pair with multiple tops and the cropped cut works well with different sandals and slides. These black flatform thongs from Rozalia Russian’s collab with Billini have been such a fun addition to my shoerobe this season, they’re ultra comfy and also give existing outfits an on trend feel.

My jeans making another appearance! I was taking the girls out to watch a show and I wanted a comfy look, so opted for a denim and shirt combination. I got this striped shirt as part of a set and I’ve worn it on its own as much as I have with the matching shorts. The red stripe adds a bold touch to an outfit and always looks polished. I’ve spent most of summer in these Proenza Schouler Birkenstocks because they’re the perfect flat shoe for when I’m on the go with the girls, and the colour goes with virtually everything.

Statement dresses are often my go-to during summer and this Rosetta Getty cut out dress has been one of my favourite new additions to my wardrobe. The neutral hue means I can pair it with a variety of different accessories, while the combination of long sleeves and cut out detail adds an interesting touch. We were heading out to dinner so I dressed it up with black heels, and the cutest shearling trimmed Jacquemus bag.

What I wore this week

18th November, 2021

I’m trying to deal with the constantly changing weather in Sydney which means that I’m finding myself in jeans and a jumper one minute and summer dresses the next. The upside is that I’m getting to utilise some wintery pieces I didn’t get a chance to wear earlier in the year (four months in lockdown meant lounge wear, all day everyday), along with dipping my toe into the summer wardrobe I’ve been dying to wear for several months now! There are just so many fun pieces right now that I’ve bookmarked for the coming months. So here’s a look at what I’ve been wearing of late…

This is pretty much my go-to uniform when I want to feel comfortable but look polished at the same time. This Venroy jumper is really cosy and lightweight which means it’s perfect for helping me navigate transseasonal dressing, while my fave Levis and ultra comfy Ducie sandals round out this look.

There’s something about an all white look that always looks so fresh and sophisticated. I have worn this corset top with jeans before but thought it would look great worked back with white trousers for a dressy look with edge. I paired it with black Bottega Veneta heels and the cutest shearling trimmed Jacquemus big which adds an unexpected touch to my ensemble, plus you can never go wrong with anything mini sized.

I recently discovered the brand Gul Hurgel and love it so much. This printed off the shoulder dress is flirty, feminine and fun and the perfect piece to have in rotation during summer. The ruffles and hearts are all kinds of cute and so great for balmy summer days.  I took the dressy route in this instance by pairing it with a structured clutch and oval framed sunglasses by Le Specs, but I could see this going more casual with some beautiful slides.

Denim is always guaranteed to be on high rotation in my weekly wardrobe repertoire as its such a reliable base for an outfit. I wore an earthy, terracotta-toned top with a bold shoulder detail with this particular look and I’ve found it be such a flattering silhouette, as the statement shoulders achieve a more cinched in look, accentuating the waist. In fact, I rate it so highly that I’ve also got this top in another colour! To add a playful and on trend touch I wore a rainbow choker by Roxanne Assoulin.

11th March, 2021

It was quite a jam packed week this week. I had meetings, big launches, fittings and interstate travel locked into my schedule so I got to work with the full spectrum of my wardrobe. It was comfy singlets one minute, to suiting the next—so I was able to really embrace high-low dressing, and experiment with some new pairings. Here’s what I wore this week.

Off to a few meetings in this ultra comfortable, yet polished look. I am really loving relaxed pants worked back with a tank, it’s such an easy, failsafe outfit template to use, particularly when I don’t have time to fuss around too much with my look.

Attending the ATC launch with my mum and sister-in-law called for something feminine and bright. It was love at first sight for this Joanna Ortiz dress, particularly the print.

I wore this look to my niece’s birthday dinner, as I wanted to wear something that wasn’t too fussy, yet had polish. Denim worked back with a shirt and flats is one of my fave go-to looks as I love it’s classic, sophisticated feel.

I was having fittings for the David Jones parade at the Melbourne Fashion Festival and it was all about this dreamy Aje dress. It’s such a great silhouette with the bodice-like ruching and the puff sleeves. So much fun.

I have been loving the swimsuit-worn-as-bodysuit look for quite awhile, so I definitely fell for this Venroy bodysuit immediately. It looks so great worn with jeans, and paired with sandals it has a great resortwear meets casual wear vibe about it.

This was another fitting I was having for the Melbourne Fashion Festival. I just love the hue of this suit, and the tapered pant worn with oversized blazer. It just has an effortless feel to it which I enjoy.

On my way to the airport! Jumping on a plane just seems like such a foreign concept, that I had to reacquaint myself with what comfy, travel attire is all about. I ended up doing another iteration of my earlier Venroy bodysuit look, but I swapped some accessories out for my fave comfy sandals, and a backpack for the ultimate in hands-free travel.

What I Wore: Summer Dressing

21st January, 2020

One of my favourite things about summer is being able to do relaxed, resort style dressing every day. While I love the laidback element of this, I also like to maintain a polished feel to my looks which is why co-ord sets are perfect. A matching set evokes a sleek and pulled together vibe and makes for an easy go-to when I’m looking for an outfit that’s easy and unfussy.

This crop and matching pants set is made of a gorgeous lightweight silk which makes it ideal for warm, balmy summer days. It also maintains a little edge to it which I like. I decided to pair this with a wide brimmed straw hat which offers the practical purpose of providing very necessary sun protection while also adding an elegant touch to my ensemble.

Whenever I’m in resort style mode I always like to keep my accessories quite simple and pared back. I stuck with some of my favourite classic jewellery options in this instance with my much beloved coin necklace and gold earrings and bangle rounding out my look.
