What I wore working from home this week

24th September, 2020

I had another varied work from home week this week with a combination of launches, campaigns and general desk time keeping me busy. But it also meant I was able to experiment with a variety of different looks. I’m on board with any excuse to get dressed up these days so it was a nice way to break up the week. Here’s what I wore this week.

I was hosting a Clarins webinar this day so it was the perfect chance to get dressed up. I wore this combination from Seed, featuring a pleated top and midi skirt. I had the chance to wear this set to a Seed launch a few months back and it’s always great to be able to pull out an event outfit again. I paired this with nude mesh Bottega Veneta heels to add a modern element.

Embracing spring dressing on this day as it was quite warm in Sydney. This lemon dress by DVF was able to get a run, but I tied a Venroy knit around my waist just in case the temperature dropped. I have been wearing these Ducie sandals non-stop as they are SO unbelievably comfortable.

Getting behind David Jones’ campaign with the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) with this Aje shirt, with 100 per cent of profits going to the ALNF’s literacy programs. I went for the classic combination of a white tee with denim, and dressed it up a little with low heel, slingback Bottega Veneta heels.

I’m loving the UK brand Ducie London right now, with these shoes and this tee quickly becoming firm favourites. I’ve got this look bookmarked for many future outings, and it’s such an easy WFH outfit template to follow just by switching up different pieces.

What I Wore: Puff Piece

22nd September, 2020

I love working with a great statement top to anchor an entire look, such as this Hellessy top. The gorgeous puff sleeve silhouette is right on-trend and such a fun piece to work with. And the teal shade is just the right amount of freshness for a spring look. While the cold shoulder detail and the ruching finish on the sweetheart neckline all add just the right amount of drama to really elevate this look.

To allow the top to take centre stage I paired it with a white pair of Bec and Bridge jeans. These pants have been on high rotation as I love the fact they’re so easy to pair with most things, but the little touches like the subtle pintuck details helps give it a little extra depth.

I decided to venture down the path of bold accessories. In this instance it was all about a crisp white, structured Bulgari bag to add a touch of elegance. While blush pink Le Specs sunglasses added a funky and playful touch.

What I wore working from home

17th September, 2020

We had some gloriously warm days in Sydney this week so it was the perfect opportunity to break out some new summery pieces. It’s got me even more excited for the warm weather to set in because I can’t wait to start embracing easy, breezy dressing every day. So, here’s a look at what I wore working from home this week.

Some new arrivals this week! This white dress by Merlette is destined for many an outing over the coming months. Plus I’m all about a long sleeved dress for this transseasonal period. I ordered these sandals from Ducie in London and they’re ultra comfortable. Very on trend, but I can’t go past the fact that I could walk around in them all day quite happily.

My sandals make another appearance because, did I tell you how comfortable they are? Also these Venroy linen pants are super soft and lightweight, and they come in other colours so I’ll be bookmarking a few more pairs this season. I love the basics from Cotton On as they’re very affordable but also hold up really well — all in all, loving this monochrome look for a day spent catching up on a few work tasks.

I wore this to a launch and wanted to embrace a classic look on this day. So it was all about a crisp white shirt and denim combination. I wore this outfit paired back with Chanel flats and a Louis Vuitton bag to add a few luxe touches.

A tank and jeans is such a winning combination, and an easy shortcut for when I just want a no-fuss look. I am slowly realising these shoes really do go with just about anything… I wanted to keep my accessories simple so I opted for this Loewe basket bag, which also added a textural element to this look.

What I Wore: Sea and Sand

15th September, 2020

I love championing Aussie labels, but even more so when its incredible designs has earned itself the title of Australia’s Best New Designer. ESSE Designs was awarded the prestigious title at this year’s Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival and I don’t doubt why. ESSE’s silhouettes are a mixture of classic tailoring given an edgy spin with crisp finishes or softer looks with ultra feminine details. It’s just the kind of brand that is perfect for spring/summer.

This set is a new season drop and it’s already the kind of thing that I want to bookmark for an event. It has an effortless feel to it, but the attention to detail and the flattering silhouette elevate it into something extra special. I’ve also already worn this pairing separately which has earned it a big tick in my book as I love being able to work separates into different looks. It also manages to soften black into something that has a summery feel but also maintains its polished vibe. We’ve already had a sneak peek at the warm weather in Sydney, and when outfits like this are on the horizon, I say summer can’t come soon enough.

What I wore working from home

10th September, 2020

I was filming a few things interspersed with desk time this week so I had an interesting week on the outfit front. I was in dresses and heels one minute and jeans and a jumper the next. I always love a bit of variety on the fashion front though so I’m not complaining! Here’s what I wore working from home this week.

I was filming something for VRC and Channel 7 so it was dress ups at home. This Barbie pink dress is such a beautiful feminine style and perfect for the races. I teamed this look with simple white heels and a pearl headband to add a touch of polish.

I always like experimenting with new looks while working from home and I’m loving this black strapless top for spring/summer. I went with distressed jeans and simple white heels to dress it up a little. An Aje necklace finished off my look.

Ultimate comfort was the order of the day so there’s no better combination than jeans and a jumper. I teamed this look with sneakers for a polished casual vibe.

I like reworking dressy pieces in a more casual way, like this look. Case in point: I wore my Rebecca Vallance suit pants and worked it back with a singlet and sneakers and voila a new WFH outfit is born.

What I Wore: Living Doll

Wearing a Barbie pink dress means that it’s almost compulsory to have fun in an outfit and you can’t get more playful than this Rebecca Vallance number. I’m a fan of long-sleeved dresses for battling tricky transseasonal weather as it helps to navigate that “Is it hot enough or cold enough to wear [insert] outfit today?” conundrum. When you throw in a classic polka dot print, it makes it the ideal piece to navigate spring/summer. Additionally I’m a fan of ruching on a dress as it instantly creates a flattering silhouette and adds a point of interest too.

When working with such a striking print and colour I knew my accessories had to be a little pared back, but not without its own personality too. So I went for a white pair of Bottega Veneta heels which are a great versatile shade to complement such a bold colour. A structured Mehry Mu bag adds a a classic ladylike touch while my slimline Poppy Lissiman sunglasses add a little edginess to offset the sweetness of this ensemble.

What I wore working from home

4th September, 2020

My working weeks are becoming more varied which has been great as I’ve been able to broaden my wardrobe a little more. I had a few shoots slotted in during the day while working from home so I was able try try out a few dressier pieces in my closet. The weather in Sydney was also glorious throughout the week so I was able to embrace a few summery pieces. Can’t wait to bring more of my spring/summer wardrobe out!

I was shooting for The Outnet and was definitely vibing this one-shoulder Stella McCartney top from the site. Love the puffy sleeves and detail, but it’s also a great piece to pair with jeans as it helps to achieve the ideal high-low mix. I know I’m going to get plenty of use out of this top in the coming months.

The warm weather meant I could play with a few of my spring dresses. I love the drop waist style of this particular piece from Steele along with the cut-out and tie detail at the back. It’s also a great comfy WFH look so it ticks all the boxes.

I wore this look for another shoot during the week and can I just say, I am loving all things Aje. They always do such dramatic and bold silhouettes and are always such great statement pieces to have.

This blazer is actually part of a suit but I often treat suiting as separates and wear the jacket and pants with other pieces. It’s a great way to maximise the wear I get out of them, particularly as there aren’t many excuses to wear a suit these days. These Bec and Bridge jeans have served me well and are so versatile. I was also happy to wear these slingback flats again—I’ve missed wearing polished footwear and have always found these flats to be such a great shoe.

What I Wore: On Safari

1st September, 2020

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.

What I wore working from home

27th August, 2020

It’s the last few days of winter so I’m making the most of it by keeping my fave winter pieces on high rotation until we hit that transseasonal weather time where I’m not quite sure what to do with my wardrobe! That said, this week’s working from home looks have been mostly about comfort, apart from one day this week where I got to play with an amazing Rebecca Vallance suit for work. I’m relishing any excuse to get dressed up! Here’s what I wore working from home this week.

Let’s once again give a round of applause to whoever kickstarted the tracksuit trend. Because it’s one of the greatest things ever to be able to walk out the door with my fave set on, pop on a coat and I’ve ticked a trend box. This Camilla and Marc jumper and pants is unbelievably comfortable but also the grey makes it really versatile. Ticks all round!

I love wearing suits and since there hasn’t been really an occasion to wear them the last few months, I welcomed the opportunity to wear this Rebecca Vallance set this week. It’s such a sleek silhouette and love the pearl buttons and fine fringing on the jacket. I wore this with a pair of white Bottega Veneta heels to finish the look off and lift it with a little extra colour.

Puffer jackets are easily one of my fave things to have on hand on crisp winter mornings and this new one from Unreal has been such a toasty addition to my wardrobe. This is a great go-to look as it’s so wearable, and comfortable with the leggings and sneakers.

I’ve bookmarked this outfit for my transseasonal wardrobe. These jeans are a great shade to work back with myriad tops. But I am all about the shape and style of this top. The structured shoulders give it a sense of boldness while the linen keeps it comfy. I’m going to be wearing this look A LOT.

What I Wore: Green Dream

25th August, 2020

Playing with volume is always a great way to dial up the drama of a look and it’s especially the case with this Aje look. This ruffled off the shoulder number is a playful, feminine piece and is the ideal focal point to my outfit. The combination of the puffed sleeves, ruching and vibrant green hue, makes it the ideal statement piece for long summer days.

Working with a voluminous piece, I think you either have to scale it right down and go for a super slimline option to pair with it or embrace the volume and go big. I opted for the latter. This tiered skirt, also by Aje, works within the same green colour family, but adds a little extra depth with the moss green shade. It’s also an interesting silhouette to play with, with the asymmetrical ruffle feature giving it a little extra character.

As far accessories go, I don’t think there’s a better pairing than gold and green, so I went for a pair of drop earrings in the metallic hue, which also adds a little extra to my overall look. I played with striking elements with this outfit and wanted to continue it in my choice of footwear so I opted for beige mesh heels by Bottega Veneta. They’re such a fashion forward style that I felt they helped elevate this ensemble even further, and add the perfect finishing flourish.
