Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week

19th October, 2023

The weather was a bit up and down this week so I had to pull out some wintery pieces that I thought had gone into hibernation for good. Such is the unpredictability when it comes to the weather at this time of year! I had a few meetings and some running around to do so I had a few outfits that were a little dressy, but mostly it was about comfort. A few of my new season favourites featured heavily in my outfit rotation, which is great as I love being able to get maximum wear out of everything. Here’s what I wore this week.

I needed something nice and toasty this week and this loungewear set by Joslin is heaven. It’s super soft so it’s perfect for spending the day in at home, but it’s elevated enough that I can wear it when I’m heading out. Love the textured finish on both the jumper and pants. I finished it off with my shearling Camilla and Marc slides, which are such a great transeasonal shoe.

When something is in rotation every week you know it’s a worthwhile wardrobe addition. These Anna Quan tailored pants work back with so many different tops in my closet, and are a bit of a style chameleon. I can easily dress them up or down. I’ve aslo been wearing this off-the-shoulder Viktoria and Woods top almost weekly. I’ve always been a fan of an off-the-shoulder neckline and this top sits well and doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall down, which is often a problem with other similar styles. Thumbs up!

My workout looks are almost always in muted tones, and black features quite heavily in the mix. This is a great Lorna Jane set as it sits well, offers support where it needs to and it’s quite breathable.

Suiting is always a fave of mine, but I love this as an option for warmer weather. It has all the polish of a suit, but without sleeves, the blazer feels a little more fashion forward (and more comfortable for hotter days). I went with some beige accessories, including my Fendi Peekaboo bag and minimalist Scanlan Theodore heels.

What I wore this week

7th September, 2023

It’s another week of transeasonal dressing in Sydney and while I’m loving the warmer temperatures later in the day, there’s still a little bit of a chill in the air in the morning which I have to take into account. However, since it’s warmed up a lot I have taken the opportunity though to do a soft launch of a few spring/summer looks I’m planning, and I’m already forecasting I’ll be wearing them a lot through spring. There’s just so much good fashion out there right now! Here’s what I wore this week.

Vests are really becoming a thing and I’m all for it. I like that it gives a pair of jeans a more elevated feel, and it’s so easy to work it back with other looks. Also PSA: if you’re looking for a great denim brand, I highly recommend Slvrlake. I have several pairs now and they’re all a great cut and fit in all the right places. I topped off this look with some Chanel to add some contrast pieces.

One of my fave styling tricks is when I want to dress super casual ie jeans and sneakers, I pop on a blazer on top and all of a sudden it feels put together. This Camilla and Marc blazer is just the right fit, it’s roomy enough to feel a little more relaxed yet there’s still enough structure to it when I want it to look dressy.

One of my favourite Aussie brands is Viktoria and Woods because their pieces always manage to look on trend but are always underpinned by a polished vibe. This pairing looks really cute worn together, but I’ve already bookmarked them both for spring/summer outfits I’ve got planned. For example how great would the top look with a pair of wide leg pants? They’re both a definite winner.

I’ve really been loving the collab between my friend Elliot and Bayse – I’ve worn these jeans previously with a white tank, but it goes equally as well with this knit top. It’s the perfect shade of grey and it works great against the indigo colour of the jeans. I threw on a pair of shearling lined slides as they make for the perfect transeasonal shoe when the weather is still going from hot to cold during the day.

What I wore this week

24th August, 2023

Lots of things on this week, so plenty of outfits to plan. There was plenty of denim in rotation going from a crisp white one minute to a dark indigo wash the next — it just goes to show how much I live in jeans and my wardrobe just couldn’t function without them. A few polished pieces such as a blazer and coat, plus a few pops of Chanel and it was a great wardrobe week all round. Here’s what I wore.

A black blazer is often one of my failsafe options whenever I need to look polished yet don’t want to fuss around too much with my outfit. This Camilla and Marc blazer is just the right cut, shape and weight to be on constant rotation right now, and it’s definitely the kind of piece that can be worn year-round. A simple white top and straight leg jeans are a great way to keep things a bit more casual, but I added a few elevated touches with a crossbody Chanel bag and Bottega Veneta heels.

I went to the Aje Athletica runway show and wanted to show my support with a look from the brand. This is a new season set and it’s a winner. The fit is great, I love thick logo band on the crop and leggings and it’s just the right thickness to feel supported. The cropped jacket is also a great casual piece that I can throw on over activewear, but the black and sand colour way give it a bit of a fashion edge.

My friend Elliot Garnaut has collaborated with the brand Bayse and every piece in the collection is something I could see myself wearing a lot. Case in point: this tank and jeans. The jeans are a great oversized fit and in a dark denim wash it feels a little dressier than your average pair of jeans. A pop of white in the form of this tank adds some lightness. It’s also the ideal shape to wear on its own or to use as a layering piece.

Party-ready with Gracie! I’ve been wearing this Assembly jumper non-stop because it’s the ideal weight and oversized fit that it goes with virtually everything I own and is perfect for the weather we’re having right now in Sydney which is feeling decidedly transeasonal. I added a coat by Dissh as the weather can sometimes turn, and a pair of cropped white jeans kept the look quite tonal. Paired with my Chanel bag and slingback flats, it’s a great high-low mix.

10th August, 2023

I know I’m well and truly back to the normal life post-holiday now as I’ve spent this past week running around in my fave off duty looks, playing catch up with life admin, work etc. Sydney has been giving some signs of an early spring with the warm days we’ve been having but for now, the temperatures have dipped slightly again so it’s back to layering again. It was one of those weeks where I relied on tried and tested pieces, some even got a repeat wear. When I’m having a busy week, it’s nice to know I have staples that will get me through with minimal fuss. Here’s what I wore this week.

White jeans are really having a moment and I’m a huge fan because of their sheer versatility. I have worn these white pants with so many things in my closet and I’m still coming up with new outfit combinations. I decided on a preppy vibe up top with a striped Bec and Bridge shirt and a cosy knit thrown over my shoulders. These DOF sneakers have been in my closet for several years and they’re still getting a regular workout. The sign of a good wardrobe addition!

This pic is from a few weeks back but I’d yet to post it and the outfit is such an easy go-to of mine that I wanted to share it. White jeans with the same sneakers, but layered with some classic neutral hues and shapes. A simple oversized knit from Assembly Label and a cosy Dissh coat (which I love for its clean lines – no buttons or belt loops to contend with) completed the outfit.

I decided to take advantage of the warm weather and throw on a dress to change things up a bit. Joslin make such gorgeous linen pieces and this design with its billowy sleeves and the pin-tucking at the front elevates this ultra comfy dress. I can’t get enough of Dad sandals and this pair from Chanel is such a great colour and a good alternative to the black version of this style.

You can’t go wrong with white and denim! It’s one of those forever stylish pairings that will see you through many an occasion. These Viktoria and Woods jeans are just the right level of baggy for my frame so I highly recommend a similar style (this one is an old style – so I’ve linked to another option) if you’re on the petite side. My DOF sneakers once again and a crisp white puffer jacket to round out the look.

What I wore this week

22nd June, 2023

The temperatures have well and truly dipped in Sydney so it has given me the perfect reason to bring out a few of my favourite winter staples. There’s nothing I love more than layering cosy separates, and this season I’ve got some very wearable pieces that are on trend, but also do the job of keeping my very snug and warm when I’m out and about. That said, there have also been some events on the cards, so I’ve had the opportunity to get frocked up and wear some great dresses. Here’s what I wore this week.

Credits: Coat, Aje; Jumper, Witchery; Jeans (similar here), Viktoria and Woods, Sneakers, D.O.F; Bag, Dior

This teddy coat by Aje is honestly the next best thing to roaming the streets with a blanket wrapped around me. It’s so cosy and warm! I love that it’s a long length style too, which ticks the on trend box, but also manages to insulate me from the chilly weather. Plus it gives great texture and the colour is so easy to pair back with multiple outfits. I popped on a pretty simple outfit underneath – a grey jumper and jeans, but the coat really adds a little extra oomph. These D.O.F sneakers are a few years’ old but they have managed to remain current in their style and silhouette which is always a tick for me.

Where would I be without Aje for their never ending supply of great dresses? This particular midi dress is made from a thick ribbed fabric which I found to maintain a really flattering shape, while the frills add a little extra to a simple and sleek design. It’s what I’d imagine an LBD inspired by the dancing senorita emoji would look like!

Credits: Dress and bag, Ralph Lauren

I’ve got a lot of preppy pieces from Ralph Lauren so this dress is a bit of a departure from that. However, how great is it? Love the navy as a great alternative to a traditional black dress, while the deep V-neck and cut outs add a glam, contemporary touch to such a simple silhouette. Also, this croissant shaped bag feels very on trend right now so it definitely had to accompany me.

Blazers are getting quite the workout in my outfit rotations these days. This oatmeal/grey blazer is a little oversized which feels very modern in its silhouette. It’s such an easy colour to work back with everything and I like that it makes the outfit feel a little less formal compared to a jacket in a darker colour. I popped this blazer on over a simple tank, and worked it back with white straight leg jeans which are my new favourite thing. It’s such a great cut and so versatile. My D.O.F sneakers made another appearance, while my green Dior Book bag added a touch of colour.

What I Wore: The Inbetween

13th April, 2023

Currently trying to dress for the in between period of transeasonal weather always brings its own set of challenges. It’s often quite chilly in the morning so I need to keep warm, but then the weather gets warmer later in the day and I don’t want to be left sweltering in my outfit. So, layering lightweight pieces is currently my go-to. Working with layers means I can easily tailor my outfit to the temperature and one of the best pieces I have to do this is a trench. The trench coat is right on trend and is without a doubt one of the best coats to wear throughout the day. It’s lightweight enough that I won’t overheat as the day progresses but looks perfect thrown over a short sleeved top and does the job of keeping me warm when required. The perfect trench this season is a little oversized, mid length (or cropped just above the ankle) and can be worn with the sleeves pushed up. You don’t want anything too tight or short—it’s all about a relaxed, effortless fit. I love this sandy colour as it’s super easy to work back with multiple pieces and has a classic vibe to it.

I wore this look while shopping/shooting content for a collaboration so comfort was key. Opting for a white t-shirt and jeans combination is a tried and tested outfit formula of mine when I want to be comfy yet polished. These Viktoria and Woods jeans are the perfect baggy silhouette that we’ll be seeing everywhere this season (they’re on sale too) and look great when layered with a trench. Plus I find it’s a fresh way to wear jeans this season and reinvigorates my rotation of denim looks.

Accessorising a pared back canvas like this outfit is always fun as I like to throw in a splash of colour or something striking to offset the more understated feel of this outfit. So I opted for a bottle green Dior tote to add an injection of brightness, while a pair of Luv Lou sunnies added a fun touch. To tie everything together, the perfect transeasonal shoe by Camilla and Marc. These slides feature a shearling lining which is so cosy, and have the added bonus of allowing me to extend the wear of open shoes well into autumn!

What I wore this week

23rd March, 2023

Another week, another outfit round up! So, where to start? Summer is still well and truly hanging on so I’ve been making the most of it by wearing a few different warm weather pieces. Also I’ve been enjoying incorporating a few trendy pieces into my looks, from cut out tops to bustier detailing and tailored elements. Here’s what I wore this week.

Layering neutrals is always one of my favourite styling options as it looks ultra sleek, and feels very modern too. I like tops with unexpected features and this long sleeved top feels on trend with the cut out and ruching detail. Both pieces are also going to be easy to work back with existing pieces in my wardrobe, so have definitely been a worthwhile addition to my closet.

Credits: Dress, Acler; Slides, Christian Dior; Bag (similar here), Strathberry

I’ve had this Acler dress for a season or two and the silhouette stills feels quite up to date and fresh, so I wear it quite often. It’s an easy outfit to pull together when I need to get out the door fast but also have a few appointments on the cards. This mini bag by Strathberry has also been getting quite the workout over the last few months. For such a diminutive bag, its quite the workhorse.

Credits: Top (similar here), Christopher Esber; Skirt, Dion Lee; Sneakers, Chanel

This wasn’t technically an outfit from this week but I had to share as this was when Sophia and I went to the Harry Styles concert! I wanted to be comfy so sneakers were a must, and this monochrome Chanel pair worked back well with the black asymmetrical Dion Lee skirt. I paired both back with this green Christopher Esber top add a bit of a fashion-ey element to this look. Also, to be a kid again… loving Sophia’s colourful look!

I wore this to a dinner at the Sydney Harbour Bridge recently and it’s still going strong. I took it in a more casual direction with the addition of a pop of colour in the form of yellow Hermes slides, but brought my blazer along to pop on top to give it a polished edge.

My favourite new season pieces from Viktoria and Woods

15th March, 2023

With a change of seasons upon us, I wanted to check out what autumn/winter pieces are in store at one of my favourite brands, Viktoria and Woods. I’ve become quite the fan of the label, as I find they do great classic staples with a twist. I find myself wearing pieces from Viktoria and Woods quite frequently so I know I can always rely on them when it comes to seasonal updates that are going to be super wearable. When it comes to autumn/winter looks, I’m all about layering so I was after pieces that can be worn easily under a beautiful coat or trench, but also transition into spring/summer to get maximum wear.

The new season drop at Viktoria and Woods features some traditional hues for autumn/winter such as navy, burgundy and chocolate brown. However I loved the splashes of pastel colour throughout, including the below lilac and a lovely shade of baby blue. So, here’s what I tried on and is currently making its way onto my shopping list…

Daisy Polo and Carraway Skirt

Matching sets are still huge and this skirt and polo combination is a fun take on it. Love the slight 70s vibe of the polo, and it’s a great silhouette for pairing with jeans and pants when not worn together with the skirt. The knitted skirt also works as a separate, and I could see myself wearing it with a long sleeved top and a coat, or transitioning it into warmer weather with a tank.

Daisy Polo in white and Twilight Pant

This is the polo in white and I think it has a lovely classic feel to it. I could also see this working with denim, but I like the fact it looks ultra polished when worn with the beige Twilight pants. It feels very preppy and put together as a look with a tailored pant, but both can easily be worn separately too.

Strummer Vest and Twilight Pant

I adore the current suiting trend of vests and pants worn together as a set. I love the masculine/feminine vibe it evokes, and it just looks ultra chic. I could also wear these two separately quite easily and both would work back well in my current wardrobe. I do love it as a set though!

Twilight Pant

Layering pieces are important to me during autumn/winter as it helps keep me warm and toasty but also looks put together. I wanted to try these pants on with an alternative top and with a coat on top and think it’s a definite winner. I also like the beige tone of the pants as it’s going to make it easy to mix and match it with a variety of different pieces.

What I Wore: Penfolds dinner

14th March, 2023

You can’t get more special than attending a private dinner on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I was so exited to attend a dinner hosted by my gorgeous sister-in-law Rey at Penfolds x Luke Mangan’s Table located atop the South-East pylon on the bridge. It was a super intimate venue and to enjoy such a stunning view with friends accompanied by delicious food made for such a memorable evening.

My outfit was of course something I was keen to put together. I ended up wanting to do something comfortable yet dressy and ended up deciding on this Viktoria and Woods ensemble. The navy bustier is right on trend right now and I felt it was elegant yet had a hint of boldness to it. I wore them with a pair of dark navy pants, with the bustier tucked in. I liked the silhouette it achieved, plus the hint of skin with the bustier was perfect for an evening occasion. I decided to keep things really simple with my hair slicked back into a bun, with a pair of gold statement earrings to add a touch of drama. The cap things off, I went with my fave black Bottega Veneta heels which complemented my navy ensemble, but added just a hint of contrast.

What I wore this week

2nd March, 2023

It’s officially the first week of autumn but the wear has still been quite warm in Sydney so I’ve been able to have most of my fave summer pieces still in rotation. That said, I’m really cultivating a love affair with tailored pants and will continue to do so seemingly into the coming months as I’m wearing them so often. Also I’ve brought out a few of my fave accessories to help round out my looks this week, including a trusty classic Gucci bag and my fave sunnies. Here’s what I wore this week.

Loving sets for easy, polished options on busy days. This set by Foemina has a relaxed vibe to it with the tunic and slim pants, but can be taken in different directions with a change in footwear. I went for super casual in this instance with the Birkenstocks but I could wear this look with a dressier sandal for something more elevated. Also, anything loose and airy is perfect for combatting the sticky heat we’ve been experiencing in Sydney.

My sartorial commitment to tailored pants continues. Camilla and Marc have been doing some gorgeous suiting inspired pieces, such as these pants. I always feel put together when I wear them, but it’s comfy enough to wear casually. The chunky sandal has become my go-to of late, and these shearling lines ones have been a fun, fashion forward addition to most of my looks.

Told you I loved a matching set! This raspberry coloured top and shorts by Bondi Born is the perfect pairing, and is a great option for doing the school run, while also being appropriate for when I need to look a little more dressed up. Both pieces are also easily worn separately so they’re a great wardrobe addition.

As we head into autumn, and the cooler weather it will bring, I’ve been stocking up on pants to have in rotation and this pair by Viktoria and Woods is definitely in the mix. I’ve had them for awhile and have really given them a workout, as I wear them most weeks, plus I packed them when I went overseas as testament to how wearable they are. I wore another great chunky sandal by Camilla and Marc (they’ve got some great footwear styles right now) to anchor the look and give it a trend element, while a classic Gucci shoulder bag and black sunnies add a touch of polish. Also, shout out to this Uniqlo tee—so comfy, so durable and a great shape.
