What I wore this week

6th May, 2021

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.

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.

The weather has been a bit up and down in Sydney this week, so it called for a plethora of different looks to cater for varying temperatures. I went from a swimsuit one minute to my fave denim the next, so it was a great exercise in being able to really delve into the various areas of my closet. Here’s what I wore this week.

One of my new fave things to do is rework a swimsuit into a bodysuit. It’s a great way to extend the wear of my swimmers and I love the versatility of being able to utilise existing pieces in different ways. I wore this great Viktoria and Woods textured swimsuit with cropped jeans, and sandals for a sleek summer look.

Being out and about as a mum means comfort is key. I love dresses for this very thing because not only are they comfortable, it’s also a great way to achieve a polished effect with minimal fuss. I wore this black Camilla and Marc dress with simple black sandals (side note: these are the comfiest sandals in my closet right now) for the ultimate in sleek and simple outfits.

This was at a press day for the All Star Mile so it was a great excuse to get frocked up. This is one of Aje’s signature silhouettes and it’s such a great look in a sky blue shade. I wore this with white Bottega Veneta pumps, and a white bag for my take on daytime elegance.

All black on this particular day. These Aje jeans worked back with a padded, sleeveless tee and sandals helped me to do a comfy look without compromising on style. Plus, the great thing is all these pieces separately work back with so many other things in my closet. Plus the addition of a classic straw bag helped to soften this look and give it a more feminine touch.

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?
