What I wore this week

25th February, 2021

It’s been a bit of a funny week in Sydney with the weather going from gloomy and rainy to sunny and hot and back again. With such crazy weather, I’ve been able to enjoy two extremes of my wardrobe going from light breezy dresses one minute to jumpers and jeans the next. I’m guessing this means transseasonal weather will well and truly be just around the corner. With a mixture of appointments, meetings, mum duties and shooting this week, here’s what I wore.

One of my favourite labels, Steele does the best summer dresses. I always love their playful prints (particularly gingham and stripes) and in particular this lemon yellow hue was perfect for earlier in the week when the sun was out. I paired this look with black Bottega heels and my fave Loewe basket bag.

Snapped up this great Zara skirt and immediately this outfit came to mind. I wore it with a Ducie top and sandals, along with my Prada bucket bag for a casual all black ensemble. And when the weather is kinda unpredictable, I always find black to be a great option.

Fresh and summery but polished is what I was going for with this look. These white Viktoria and Woods wide leg jeans have been such a great addition to my wardrobe as they can be worked back with so many different hues and styles. Plus I love the current on trend pairing of beige and white—it just looks immediately put together. My go-to Bottega Veneta heels and metallic Chanel backpack finished off this look.

My take on winter in summer dressing. I pulled out this khaki Bec and Bridge jumper I wore to death last winter as I loved it so much, and it was nice to be reunited again. Worked against black Aje jeans and sandals it helped me to navigate a cool-ish day outside. Plus this belt bag by Furla is my new fave thing. The perfect hands-free accessory option!

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: Crown Sydney

20th January, 2021

I have a newfound appreciation for a great staycation given border restrictions right now so I was thrilled to be invited to check out the newly opened Crown Sydney in Barangaroo. With a luxe holiday feel, it was the the ideal time to try a few resortwear looks.

The one thing I always do whenever I’m on holiday is embrace a simple colour palette that can be mixed and matched. I went for crisp white and warm neutrals in this instance, wearing some great new pieces from Viktoria and Woods. The white pants I’m wearing below have been such a great addition to my summer wardrobe. They go with virtually anything and can easily be dressed up or down (I’ll definitely bookmark them for when the time comes when we’re able to do overseas trips again).

What’s a holiday without being able to get dressed up for a nice dinner? We were lucky to roadtest one of the new restaurants at the Crown so an LBD seemed the ideal starting point. I opted for a sleek Aje dress with a subtle cut-out and and Bottega Veneta sandals.

While poolside, I embraced one of my fave trends of summer: wearing a one-piece swimsuit with pants. I wore a one-shoulder Bondi Born swimsuit with lightweight wide leg pants by Monday Swimwear, which easily took me from sitting by the pool to being able to grab a bite to eat without missing a beat. Sleek and simple – my fave way to do holiday dressing, near or far.

What I wore working from home

11th June, 2020

The MVPs of my winter wardrobe are slowly presenting themselves as I find myself gravitating towards certain pieces time after time. I’ve been trying to find that line between feeling and looking polished while working from home, and still being comfortable. I think it’s a work in progress, but I’m loving experimenting with different silhouettes and colours. But above all, I’m finding denim still very much rules in my wardrobe…

Jeans and a white tank— you can’t really every go wrong with a combination such as this. This forms the basis for many a look for me as I can easily throw on a jumper or a blazer and it can instantly change up the vibe of the outfit, but also add a touch of polish. I’m loving relaxed denim silhouettes right now, and this pair by Camilla and Marc is really comfy.

These Levis jeans are the best wash—they look vintage and are easily paired with different top styles, and also pair well with most hues. Loving this button down knit by Viktoria and Woods as it has the look of a shirt, but the comfort factor of a knit.

I am seriously loving Aje at the moment, particularly this top (which I’ve also got in black—see below!). Love the voluminous silhouette which works great with a more streamlined pant. I’ve found it works really well with a statement coat, and simple white pumps help finish off the look.

The hue of this Aje skirt is such a good shade for winter. It’s the perfect pop of colour to add a little more energy to a winter look, plus worked back with a black smock top, it looks polished. I also like the fact that I can take this look into spring, which definitely betters the cost per wear of this look.

What I Wore: Top Coat

24th March, 2020

While we may all be spending a lot more time at home these days, I’m still trying to inject a little fun into my wardrobe everyday in whatever way I can. Fashion’s always been such a huge part of my life and wearing a beautiful piece (even if I’m just going to staying inside) is one thing that helps me maintain a little normality in my routine.

I had this coat bookmarked for many an outing throughout autumn/winter, from meetings to events to the races and while those events may be put on hold right now, I’m still trying to work it into my wardrobe as best as I can. This checked coat by Viktoria and Woods is such a great statement piece to pop on top of a casual look to add a dressy element. The pattern, the cut and the contrasting details give it an elevated feel.

My collection of jeans has definitely been getting much more of a workout than usual. It has been interesting trying to find pieces in my closet that are comfortable enough for a day spent at home but also maintains a polished feel. This is where a crisp white shirt is ideal. It strikes just the right vibe but isn’t overly fussy.

The combination of a crisp white shirt and jeans is a blank canvas for so many different types of accessories. White slingback heels and a classic black bag make this look appropriate for myriad occasions. It’s definitely one outfit I’m bookmarking for future use.

What I Wore: Everything’s Illuminated

17th December, 2019

An all white ensemble is hard to beat which is why it’s always one of my go-to outfits. It’s always looks sophisticated and fresh and is perfect for those times when you want an impactful look. Recently, I checked out the new Viktoria and Woods store in Sydney’s Mosman and uncovered a new ensemble that I love. I’m always endlessly pleased when a fave of brand of mine opens locally and with such a great collection in store right now, I found it hard not to compile a lengthy wish list.

The below look ticks the versatility box, which is key for me whenever I’m considering an outfit. Separately I think the blouse, pants and corset are able to be worked back with other pieces in my closet and can easily be dressed up or down. Even the corset, which at first may seem limited to only certain occasions, can be worn with a simple tee for a look that’s casual yet elevated. Worn together I think it’s sophisticated and modern and maintains a classic sensibility.

To really allow the entire look to pop, I went for all white accessories too. Crisp white cat eye frames and white mules were the bright and fresh accoutrements needed to finish off this look.

What I Wore: Viktoria & Woods

10th December, 2019

I love it when my favourite brands move into my local neighbourhood so i was so excited to check out the new Viktoria and Woods boutique in Mosman. The space is stunning and such a good place to spend time in for a spot of shopping—especially for popping things on your Christmas wish list!

I was so excited to check out what’s in store and immediately fell in love with this pink snakeskin co-ord set. The soft pink shade is just perfect for this time of year, while the print gives it a bit of edge and makes it ideal for events. The short sleeved wrap jacket with tie, worked back with the wide leg pants evoke an effortless vibe that is just made for summer, and worn together achieves a really striking effect.

This look was all about keeping it simple so I opted for the pared back accessories. I gravitated towards white accoutrements to pick up the white in the snakeskin print and gave the look some cohesion. The slip on mules and minimalist jewellery that included a necklace and drop earrings were the just the right finishing touches — understated yet able to stand out.
