What I Wore: Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day

16th April, 2019

Having one of my all time favourite designers make me a custom piece to wear to the Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day was such a privilege. I’m a huge fan of Camilla and Marc and have been for a long time so to get to wear something that was especially made for me was so exciting.

I’ve always loved the look and feel of Camilla and Marc’s blazers so I decided on having a cream tweed suit made. The double breasted jacket and cropped trousers evoked a classic feel, whilst the tweed added a cool weather vibe that was ideal for an autumn racing event. To give the suit some added shape, I decided to belt it with a wide burgundy waist belt to cinch it in and also add a statement piece to my outfit.

As far as my accessories went I decided on burgundy heels to match the colour of the belt and a padded cream headband, which I think worked well with my brand new, shorter hairstyle. 

This suit is without a doubt one of my favourite new additions to my wardrobe. I’m already looking forward to the next time I’m able to give it another outing. I’m sure it won’t be long.

What I Wore: The Championships

11th April, 2019

I love a monochrome dress code so I was excited to attend Derby Day at The Championships over the weekend as attire was all about black and white.

I went for a classic look for the day having found the ideal houndstooth print mini dress by Balmain to wear on the day. I loved being able to work a little old school glamour into my outfit via the dress but wanted to still maintain a modern feel with my accessories.

When it comes to monochrome I think gold is the ideal accent colour. So I incorporated a few gilded accessories into my look with a black and gold Victoria Novak headband and gold statement earrings by Clover accessories. I then kept things simple and sleek with black Aquazurra pumps and a dainty top handle Oroton bag.

I think there’s always something about autumn racing events that just inspire me to channel classic looks. And really how can you ever go wrong with the classics?

What I Wore: The New Neutrals

9th April, 2019

I favour neutrals a lot in my wardrobe because they’re so wearable and versatile. They’re the building blocks for many a look. That said, I’m growing to see them as a fashion powerhouse on their own. Working neutrals together can often equate to a chic ensemble that still packs a sartorial punchiness that can’t be ignored. This Camilla and Marc look has become a favourite because of just that. The cream top and beige skirt, work together to lift one another but separately they can also blend seamlessly into an outfit. This season shades such as beige and caramel will be huge so no doubt I’ll be welcoming a lot more pieces like this in my wardrobe.

I think wearing neutrals does require dialling it up a little in the accessories department. This vibrant orange Espie Roche top handle bag is the perfect pop of colour to lift this look and add a fun element. Meanwhile round frame Chloe sunglasses add a playful vibe and simple Gucci slides are a sophisticated (and comfy!) footwear choice.

I can see this look taking me to so many occasions from work, to a meeting to a catch up with friends so no doubt it’s going to get quite the workout in the weeks to come.

What I Wore: ATC Lunch

4th April, 2019

As this year’s ATC ambassador, I was excited to attend the ATC Autumn Fashion Lunch at Wisteria restaurant at Sydney’s Centennial Park yesterday. The lunch showcased some of the best looks for autumn racing, with all the looks styled by official autumn racing stylist, Jess Pecoraro. I’ve worked with Jess numerous times for various occasions so I was excited to see her vision for the season.

Pink is a big trend for autumn racing so I opted for this candy coloured Alessandra Rich dress for a polished, feminine look. When working with such a colour I think it’s key to let the vibrant shade take centre stage so as far as my headwear went I decided to keep it simple with a Nerida Winter headband in a matching shade. I then opted for my pink Bulgari bag to keep things tonal then cream Christian Louboutin heels to provide a subtle pop of colour.

I really love all the looks for this particular time in the racing calendar and I’m looking forward to Day 1 of the Championships this Saturday. I can’t can’t wait to see the Derby Day fashion at the track.

What I Wore: Palace of Versailles

30th March, 2019

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Huawei P30 global launch in Paris. The three day event was filled with exciting activities and one of the standouts for me was visiting the Palace of Versailles. I haven’t been there since I was a child so it was amazing to go back and see it again.

It’s spring time in Paris so when the sun is shining the weather can be warm so I opted for this Camilla and Marc mini dress. However the mornings and afternoons are quite cool so I teamed it with my Stuart Weitzman suede over-the-knee boots and my DVF red faux fur coat—both great layering pieces. I wanted to add extra shape to this look so I cinched it in with my black Isabel Marant belt. To accentuate the pink florals in the print on my dress so I decided on taking my pink Bulgari bag with body strap out for the day. It’s the perfect style of bag when you’re on the go traveling and sightseeing as it keeps your hands free and takes out the hassle of having to carry a bag around.

My week on Instagram

24th March, 2019

We had a week of typical trans-seasonal weather in Sydney which meant sunshine one minute and torrential downpour the next. The upside though? The girls were able to wear these adorable raincoats whilst out and about on one of our usual walks as they inspected all the gorgeous blooms that are still on display in our neighbourhood.

I also enjoyed the bustling CBD this week debuting a new look by Camilla and Marc that ticked all my requirements for a sleek monochrome look.

And lastly I ended the week attending the Golden Slipper Stakes in Sydney in my new role as ATC ambassador but also to take on reporting duties for 7 Racing. It was great to be able to get in front of the camera again and chat all things fashion at one of my favourite racing events.

Hope you have a great week!

What I Wore: CITY LIMITS

19th March, 2019

I’m always drawn to monochrome and this Camilla and Marc dress is no exception. The strong shoulder in the dress gives it a girl boss vibe while the long sheer sleeves that finish with slightly flared cuffs and a statement split give it a feminine touch. The black and white check is quite subtle so you can play it up with a bold accessories or keep it more conservative with neutral tones. I wore this look for a day of meetings in the city so I opted to stay within the black natural tones with my Aquazzura pump heels and Prada bucket bag. I added a bit of a modern twist with my Poppy Lissiman sunglasses.

My week on Instagram

17th March, 2019

Such an exciting week this week! I was so thrilled to be able to announce that I am the ATC 2019 Autumn Racing ambassador. As Sydney racing has such a special place in my heart I’m particularly excited to be taking on this role. Plus as a bonus I was able to have Sophia and Grace join in on all the activity which is always great when you’re a working mum and are able to combine work and family.

I was able to share a few of my favourite looks too with the standouts being the white Dion Lee dress I wore to VAMFF and the gorgeous Macgraw top I wore recently on a #whatiwore shoot.

And with such a busy schedule I dialled it back a bit, appreciating the gorgeousness of new blooms.

I hope you have a great week!

What I Wore: Fancy Frills

12th March, 2019

 When you have a standout blouse to work with it pays to keep the rest of your look quite pared back, such was the case with this ensemble. The Macgraw top, with its frilled bib and sleeves is the centre piece of this outfit so I opted for simple white Maticevski pants. The colour picked up the tones in the blouse without competing for attention.

As far as my accessories went it was an obvious choice to go with all neutrals. A simple pair of pointed beige Christian Louboutin shoes and a beige Fendi clutch were the ideal complementary pieces to this ensemble. Simple and elegant whilst still providing the perfect backdrop to allow the top to shine.

What I Wore: David Jones Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival

9th March, 2019

I flew down to Melbourne this week to attend the David Jones show at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF). I attend this event almost every year and it’s always fun to spend some time in Melbourne checking out the upcoming trends.

I wanted to keep my look sleek and sophisticated for the show so I couldn’t go past a monochrome colour palette. Dion Lee never fails to deliver when it comes to event attire, especially when it comes to needing a particular piece that’s got a little edge and elevated finishing touches. As such I couldn’t pass up this gorgeous white tank dress with sheer panelling from the range. The weather can be a little unpredictable in Melbourne so I opted to pair the dress with my trusty black Balmain blazer and minimalist Stuart Weitzman heels.

I knew the outfit would need a few interesting accents so the Chloe Nile bracelet bag was the perfect amalgamation of a clutch and jewellery. Whilst my new gold drop astrology earrings from The Slow Mode provided another element that was playful yet elegant.
