Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore this week (on location)

24th June, 2021

I’m on holiday in Port Douglas this week so I replaced my usual winter gear for one of my favourite types of clothing: resortwear! It’s warm where we are staying so it gave me the perfect reason to pull out some new additions to my wardrobe, including some great swimwear and cover-ups. I love dressing for balmy weather as outfits feel so relaxed, yet they can easily be glammed up with the right accessories. I’m quite partial to doing a bit of beach glam as it’s such a fun way to mix and match some of my favourite pieces. Here’s what I wore this week… on location.

One of the things I’ve been using as a staple look this week is a swimsuit or bodysuit paired with easy, relaxed separates. These white pants are so fresh and perfect for balmy weather. I paired it with my trusty Loewe basket bag, because if you can’t wear a basket bag on a beach holiday then when can you? I finished off the look with a chunky gold necklace and sunnies as the final touch.

I always pack a wrap like this whenever I’m doing a beach holiday as it’s great to wear as a skirt, and also something to throw on after a swim. Bondi Born always do really practical, yet elegant separates that are made for a holiday destination such as far north Queensland. I paired them with my fave Ray Bans and trusty white Gucci sandals.

We were heading out to dinner so I wanted to glam it up a bit. This cami is such a great piece as it’s so lightweight that it barely takes up any room in my suitcase, but it’s also just the thing to elevate a pair of linen pants. The pearl straps are just delightful and such a fun touch to this outfit.

I absolutely love this set by Venroy. It’s super comfy and the contrasting thin and thick stripes achieve an interesting effect that give this look some personality. They’re also perfect worn on separately and worked back with other pieces so I can double the use of them while I’m up here.

Loving this textured swimsuit by Monday Swimwear. It’s a great colour and I like the ribbed effect as it adds a layer of interest to this ensemble. I paired this with my Bondi Born wrap, and this printed Aje bucket hat. These Karen Walker sunglasses have been a fun addition to my sunnies collection, they’re an interesting shape and I love the geometric silhouette as an accent piece.

See? What did I tell you about these shorts? I paired this with a one shoulder swimsuit for a glam look for the day and proved I did some great strategic packing. I always make sure that any pieces I bring when I travel can be worked back with other items I’m packing and turned into a variety of different looks. Topped off with my fave basket bag and sandals, I can’t think of a better tropical look.

What I Wore This Week

17th June, 2021

Coming from a long weekend, I went straight from relaxation mode to another busy week. One minute I was sipping G&Ts in the country, and the next minute I was doing black tie fittings at home and rocking the a fun casual cool ensemble on the steps of one of my fave museums in Sydney. It’s always interesting to visit the full spectrum of my wardrobe, and the last few days have been just that, going from one extreme to another—but hey, isn’t that when fashion is at its most fun? Here’s what I wore this week.

This is what you’d call my ideal heavenly set-up. We escaped to the farm over the long weekend and I parked myself in front of the fire, and enjoyed a delicious cheese platter and a refreshing G&T. Oh and the outfit! I love doing cosy jumpers and jeans for relaxing winter days, and I couldn’t do it without my trusty RM Williams boots by my side.

I went to a luncheon hosted by my sister-in-law and I wanted to wear something with a little boldness so this crimson printed dress by Leo & Lin seemed the perfect fit. The vibrant colour makes a statement, while wearing lace up boots helped ground the look and give it a little edge.

Just an ordinary day at home… Well not quite. I was doing dress fittings at home for an upcoming event and couldn’t resist snapping a pic of this dress. It’s such a sleek silhouette and a classic LBD, but what I love about it are the feathers at the neck. They add a touch of old school glam and a little whimsy to such a pared back silhouette.

I’ve been living in these jeans of late as they’re such a great fit and style. I paired them with this playful top by RtA. I love the bikini style tie feature, which gives a plain black tee an unexpected twist. And what better way to accessorise than with this classic Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag. Super chic and stylish and such a great new addition to my wardrobe.

What I wore this week

10th June, 2021

After a hectic few days of multiple outfit changes at Fashion Week last week, I wanted to keep things as simple and low key as I possibly could this week, so I opted for a capsule wardrobe approach. What I love about having a limited selection of pieces to choose from is that it forces you to reuse pieces and think of new ways to do so, but it takes away the overwhelm that comes from using your entire wardrobe. So I settled on a few winter staples—a great coat, a trusty pair of jeans and accessories that would work back with lots of different outfit iterations. Here’s what I wore this week.

I got this coat a few seasons ago and it’s been such a good addition to my wardrobe because it’s on high rotation every winter. A patterned coat is such a great way to lift a pared back outfit, and it really adds an element of interest when you’re working with a simple colour palette. These jeans were a pre-emptive winter buy and they’ve proven themselves to be super versatile. Paired with a black top, this outfit is the kind of elevated casual look that I will turn to time and time again.

See what I mean about this coat? Totally different outfit vibe but it still works. I did a denim on denim look on this day, and I have to say I’ve been wearing this Camilla and Marc denim jacket non-stop. It’s the perfect oversized fit and it works back so well with so many other pieces in my wardrobe. I went for sneakers to keep the look comfy and casual, but a Chanel backpack adds a luxe touch!

This is one of those failsafe outfit combinations that I have on hand when I don’t really want to have to think about what I’m wearing. A white top and jeans is always a classic pairing, but popping on a black blazer over the top gives it a polished feel. I dialled down it down from looking too dressy with a pair of sandals to keep it comfy and cool, and added a splash of colour with my green Dior tote.

I wore this outfit again (what did I say about a great capsule wardrobe?) minus the coat and it makes such a good go-to uniform. I’ve worn jeans every day this week which is a pretty accurate representation of how a lot of my weeks go, as denim is such a versatile base for an outfit. I can pair it with pretty much anything and it just works.

It’s always fun to get to play around with a few new pieces in a wardrobe rotation and this week it’s all about some fun winter purchases. I always map out what I’m going to splurge on at the start of a new season and so far, the pieces I have have been seamlessly able to work into my regular outfit repertoire. I think that’s always the sign of a good purchase! From double denim one minute to splashes of Barbie pink the next, here’s what I wore this week.

Sometimes a look is cemented on the colour alone, and that was certainly the case with this Aje suit. I was off to lunch in this number, and it certainly perked me up — how could it not with that playful made-for-Barbie pink? Also I think this is further proof that a suit doesn’t have to be exclusively the domain of classic neutrals. You can definitely afford to have a little fun with it.

With my little sidekick here, and rocking our shades of pink. I love the soft baby pink hue of this jumper as it’s so easy to match with virtually everything in my wardrobe. I paired it with some trusty denim and sneakers and I was ready to tackle my day with Grace.

Some people love it, some people hate it but I’m the first to admit that I’m quite partial to a Canadian tuxedo. This double denim look is all Camilla and Marc, and both work really well together, but also separately. I’ve been able to work these two pieces in so many different ways, which is always a big tick in my book.

My go-to uniform: a white tee and jeans. It always works without fail and I know I can rely on it on those days when I just want a no-fuss look that still looks stylish. I added a touch of colour with the emerald green Dior bag (which FYI is such a great size as it pretty much fits my entire life comfortably) and my fave sandals. I love when a look just comes together like this.

It was a week of special occasions, kicked off by Mother’s Day spent with my family so it was all about occasion dressing this week. And it was proof that dressing for events is the perfect opportunity to explore the full gamut of your wardrobe. It’s about embracing different looks, from rich hues, elegant tailoring and a killer statement dress, but also about reverting to tried and tested favourites when your outfit needs a lift. Here’s what I wore this week.

A special mother-daughter date with Grace, where enjoyed a beautiful morning tea. Of course, it called for a bit of dressing up. Grace embraced her favourite hue, while I went for a sleek shirt dress by Melbourne-based brand Diida. Love the classic silhouette of this dress offset by the on-trend, modern vibe of my black Bottega heels.

Enjoying a very special Mother’s Day lunch with my family at Crown Sydney. The girls were in their Sunday finery so I decided to follow suit with this Acler top and skirt combination. The sky blue one shoulder top worked back with the lilac skirt made for a great colour blocking moment, and embracing vibrant colours seemed perfect for such a happy occasion.

Very proud daughter moment this week when I watched my mum awarded her Order of Australia medal. Attending with the rest of my family, I opted for an all white outfit with a top by Viktoria and Woods and white pants, also by the label. I opted for my black Bottega heels to help finish off this look, and is further proof that you can’t ever go wrong with monochrome.

I went to a fashion show this week and it was so incredibly lovely being back doing something that seemed so impossible just a year ago. This was the Aje show in Sydney, and of course, I wanted to support the brand by wearing Aje. This dreamy green hue was so vivid and rich, and it made for quite the statement-making look.

The last few days have been busy, and with a few events up my sleeve it meant that I was lucky enough to have the perfect excuse to wear some truly beautiful pieces. I was on hosting duties for Lexus, then a fun American Express event, and a family brunch, so I was able to explore the full spectrum of my wardrobe, from casual to occasion dressing. I love being able to play with different looks, so weeks like these are so great when they pop up. Here’s what I wore this week.

When it came time to host a Lexus event, what better option than a suit… but make it make it sporty. This Burberry look was so much fun to wear. The bomber/blazer hybrid is a a more fashion forward take on a traditional suit jacket, while the pleated tapered pant added a polished element. Also the colour! I love wearing vibrant hues to energise myself for the day ahead.

I wore this black tie look for another Lexus event and carried the blue theme again into my look. This Bianca Spender dress is such a sleek design, with the ruched neckline and cap sleeve making for a bold silhouette. I chose black accent pieces including the most gorgeous tie-up Christian Louboutin heels and a mini Louis Vuitton chain handle bag.

I wore this strapless camel hued dress by Sir the Label to the launch of American Express Delicious Month Out in Sydney and fell in love with its simplicity. The clean lines and the unfussy design makes for an elegant option for event wear. I accessorised this with black tie-up heels again, this time by Aje and a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag and a touch of gold with Manning Cartell earrings.

Having brunch with my family and I decided to pull out this Camilla and Marc midi skirt, which has been the perfect neutral skirt to have in rotation. It just works with so many different pieces. I went for a black top to provide a little contrast, but neutral sandals to continue the silhouette. While my forest green Dior bag added a nice hit of colour to brighten up my ensemble (it’s also quite roomy so I can take everything I need with me).

Cosying up in some of my favourite winter pieces this week has been fun as I’ve been able to unearth a few faves from last season and pair them with some new additions to my closet. But, the weather in Sydney this week has been mild enough that I’ve been able to wear a few summery pieces, and give them another outing. Here’s what I wore this week.

I wore this with a blazer last week but decided to keep it a little more casual so I switched out the jacket for a knit. It works with the jumper draped over my shoulder for when the weather is still a bit warmer during the day, and then I can easily just pop it on if temperatures drop. It’s a great trans-seasonal option.

This look is a riot of colour and I love it! It’s a great mood booster and the print is so fun and striking. It’s a set which means it’s such an easy outfit option because I don’t have to fuss around with pairing tops and bottoms. I simply added a pair of Gucci sandals to finish it off. And I can always rely on my trusty Loewe bag to help my carry all my essentials around.

I can’t emphasise enough how comfortable this Staud look is. It makes for a great travelling outfit as it’s polished, but it’s also a great go-to for busy days where you don’t have much time to be fussing around with an outfit. I went for an all black colour palette and added a pop of colour with my emerald green Dior bag.

All my fave jeans are coming back into rotation, including this black pair from Aje. They’re a great cut and are high waisted, which I really like. A sweater for unpredictable temperature changes, and a roomy tote make this a great look for when I’ve got a busy schedule to contend with.

I’m always trying to rework any new additions to my wardrobe in as many different ways as I can, and this week was no different. I ended up playing around with a new pair of Ksubi jeans, dressing them up and down, while I also had great time trying on new season looks from Valentino. As someone who loves fashion, it’s always enjoyable to be able to visit all spectrums of my wardrobe, from the super dressy to the ultra casual and have fun either way. Here’s what I wore this week.

Who says comfy can’t look stylish? This has got to be one of the most comfortable go-to outfits I have in my closet right now and I think it still works as a polished look. I invested in these dark Ksubi jeans for winter, and these sneakers have been in my closet for awhile, while the tee is from one of my fave stores for basics, Uniqlo. I also snapped up this wool blazer by Wardrobe.NYC to carry me through autumn/winter. I think just the addition of the blazer instantly gave this look a classic touch.

New Ksubi jeans make an appearance again! It’s a testament to how versatile they are. I dressed this up with Bottega Veneta heels and a simple tee. The shape is trending right now so it gave the look an on trend feel.

Enjoying my time playing dress ups at Valentino. I could have stayed there all day trying things on but this look was by far my favourite. Who could resist wearing this gold matelassé skirt and feathered kaftan? So chic, and so glam, and so Valentino. I also love the new shoe and accessories range featuring the larger studs; this bag and shoes have certainly stayed on my mind…

I might be a little biased being friends with the designer and all, but this set from my friend Nadia’s capsule collection with The Upside has got to be one of the great new additions to my loungewear collection. I love the sporty stripes contrasted with crisp white. So wearable and so comfortable too.

Another week of school holidays, and another mixed bag of looks. I’ve been in and out of Sydney, so I’m in farm mode one minute, city styling the next. I’ve been embracing a lot of co-ord sets this week, which is just about one of my fave shortcuts to achieve a polished look. While I reverted to one of my fave outfit combinations when I wanted an easy breezy look. Here’s what I wore this week.

I love a matching set because they’re so wearable and look instantly put together. This look by Manning Cartell works so well as a duo, but I’m also able to wear it separately which means double the wear. And let’s not forget the fact it’s super comfy which is always a bonus in my book.

Acler have been doing such beautiful pieces of late. I love this matching set with the statement buttons, it’s just a fun little number with playful touches, but it also looks put together which is always the kind of vibe I love for any outfit.

Wanted to dress comfy but still feel like I’d made an effort so this look was the ideal compromise. I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a white tee and jeans. I’m really loving more relaxed cuts recently, and it works really well with a statement shoulder as the silhouette looks cinched in at the waist, which makes for an instantly flattering shape.

Credits: Top and shoes, Ducie; Jeans (similar here), Ksubi

Went for a run but why not support my fave designers while I’m at it? I’ve been loving the athleisure pieces Aussie brands such as Camilla and Marc and Rebecca Vallance have been doing. It’s a great way to do a workout and look presentable enough to go do some errands straight after. Plus I’ll never complain about wearing something supremely comfy like a hoodie and leggings.

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.
