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.

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.

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.

I had one of those working weeks where I had filming to do, some meetings and desk time, so my wardrobe was equally as varied. It’s nice to mix it up as it allows me to play with various sections of my wardrobe, from activewear through to more polished pieces and my go-to casual staples. Here’s what I wore this week.

I can attest to how versatile these leggings by Camilla and Marc are. I’ve had them since the beginning of the year and they’re still on high rotation. Love the colour combination of this Aje jumper and it worked back well with my leggings. In amongst my collection of white sneakers are this black pair by Nike and I wear them often as they’re so comfortable.

I always elevate denim with statement pieces and this Viktoria and Woods coat fit the bill. Love the pattern and it works well with the classic combination of jeans and a white top. I finished off this look with sneakers and my fave Chanel backpack for that high-low mix.

I was filming something with American Express so I had the perfect opportunity to roadtest this look. I did a denim on denim combination and added a little hit of colour in the form of my Bottega Veneta white heels and Burberry bag and finished it off with an Aje necklace.

Loved these jeans so much they deserved another outing. This time around I had a coffee date for work and ended up going for smart casual. White sneakers and a Bec and Bridge knit struck just the right balance.

Working from home was broken up with some filming commitments for Lexus so I was able to get dressed up! (I don’t think I ever fully appreciated how nice it was to be able to do that until now). It’s a nice way to break up the week and is something different so I always welcome these small changes to the day. Here’s what I wore working from home this week.

Spring/summer pieces are slowly but surely starting to creep back into my wardrobe. This dress is ultra comfortable but I loved the fact it still has a polished feel with the ruching and puffed sleeves. Also being able to wear sneakers with just about everything is so great isn’t it?

Kept it simple today with a cosy knit but added a pop of colour with the pink shade. Jeans and my go-to Chanel flats helped finish off the look. I could swap the slingbacks for sneakers and have myself an outfit that’s great for days spent running around after the girls.

Embracing touches of monochrome with this particular ensemble for a day of filming with Lexus. I went with a pared back yet polished look and went for the failsafe combination of a blazer, classic top and jeans. Comfortable flats also helped to round out this ensemble.

I changed up the previous look by making a simple swap from a blazer to a cardigan. I’m always a fan of an outfit that can be reworked by tweaking one piece. Also, this cardigan is as cosy and comfy as it looks. It’s been such a great investment and is something I know I’ll wear again season after season.

It’s been a week all about comfort dressing. I wanted to power through a few things on the work front so I was all about fun pieces that are still ideal for putting in some quality time with my laptop. So jeans and jumpers were the order of the day, but with a few punchy accessories in the mix to liven things up. Here’s what I wore working from home this week.

I love this jumper because the print and colour is simply all kinds of fun. It’s a great mood lifter and works brilliantly with denim so really, I can’t ask for more. These ripped jeans by Ksubi are ideal for a desk day and add a touch of edge to any look.

A little black and white on an unseasonably warm day in Sydney. I’ve been wearing a lot of Uniqlo basics as they’re so great for mixing and matching with different looks. I paired them with Chanel sneakers to add a touch of luxe (but still very practical) and a Dion Lee skirt just to dress it up a bit.

These straight leg jeans by Aje are so comfortable and really great for providing the starting point for an outfit. I went for a classic black and red combination today with this vibrant jumper from one of my fave brands, Skin and Threads.

Whoever made tracksuits a bonafide style staple deserves a medal. I love this Camilla and Marc set because it’s high on comfort levels but and ticking a trend box all at the same time. I paired them with a neutral pair of sneakers by D.O.F to finish off the look.

It’s another work from home week and it has been torrential downpour and freezing one minute to sunny days and mild-ish temperatures the next in Sydney. So, it has made outfits very trans-seasonal. I’ve also had a few work meetings scheduled and took the opportunity to embrace some slightly dressier pieces because who doesn’t love any excuse to get a little more dressed up these days. Here’s what I wore this week.

All about a statement coat and couldn’t resist this leopard print faux fur number. It’s super cosy too, so it definitely ticks the practical box. I relied on my failsafe jeans and a white top combination on this day, because it provided the perfect base for a funky print.

I wore this in a recent What I Wore post and can attest to how much I love it based on its frequency of appearance in my outfit roster. I really can’t go past comfy separates, and paired with boots, it’s the ideal balance of comfort-dressiness that I always aim for.

I saw this knit and fell in love immediately because I could imagine how warm and cosy it would be. I’m a fan of all things navy as I’ve found it to always look chic and classic, and I think the silhouette with the hybrid cowl/turtleneck makes for the ideal anchor point to this look. I added a black skirt with fold detail (you can always rely on Dion Lee for the most perfect finishing touches) and kept the rest pretty simple.

How good are these camel pants by Manning Cartell? They’re a great fit and just the right winter shade. I wanted to go for a pared back vibe so I went for a simple white ribbed top. I enjoy having the opportunity to rock a few dressier pieces and these pants have become a firm fave.

Working from home outfits during the school holidays are always an interesting proposition— I can go from dressed up for a work call or meeting one minute to super casual and ready to head out to do an activity with the girls the next. It’s been the week for doing lots of denim (kids=comfort) but I did get the chance to pop on a nice dress which is always a great way to elevate the week. Here’s what happened on the work from home wardrobe front this week.

I wore this Ginger and Smart dress last week and decided it needed another outing immediately. I love the astronomy print and the billowy sleeves, but particularly love its versatility. It can be worn with or without the belt depending on how I’m feeling that day.

Comfort is key when the kids are at home so jeans it most definitely is. I love the thick denim that these jeans are made from as it holds its shape really well. Paired with a comfy beige knit, I’m ready for tackling another busy and active day.

I’ve just gotten into these tanks by Australian brand Henne and I’m already obsessed. They’re a great fit, cut and such a good quality. I’ve been layering them with different jackets and knits, but can see myself wearing them throughout summer with skirts and shorts.

I’ve always maintained the importance of a good camel coat during winter. It’s so versatile, and this particular one by Karen Millen has seen many an outing. It’s such an effortless piece to throw on over jeans and a tank to dress it up, and most importantly, it helps keep me cosy when I’m out and about (or answering emails).

I went for smart separates one day to edgy and moody the next this week, with a few punchy colours and patterns in between. It’s been a mixture of different commitments for work, so I tried to go for looks that could easily go from one activity to the next with ease. I’m really getting into lots of textures for winter, with cosy knits front and centre and a statement woolen coat punctuating a dressy all black ensemble. Here’s what I wore to work this week.

This is one of my favourite colour combinations for winter as it looks so fresh. Wearing crisp white is one of my favourite things to do at this time of year as it helps to brighten up a cool weather ensemble. Paired with a soft beige jumper it makes for an easy casual look with polish.

I can’t go past a statement coat moment during winter. I had to head out for work and couldn’t resist this Rebecca Vallance piece, with its striking print. Whenever I wear black from head to toe, I always like to add a pattern to help liven up a look. Black jeans and a black skivvy is an easy shortcut to effortless cool weather dressing.

I snapped up these jeans and a cropped denim jacket from Aje and have found them to be such a great addition to my wardrobe. High waisted jeans are my go-to as I love the streamlined silhouette it achieves, and it’s just the perfect partner to a cropped jacket. I’ve found the proportions just play so well together. I stocked up on skivvies at Uniqlo and they’ve been such a good staple to have on hand, and I’ve found myself turning to them constantly.

I’m really loving all things Aje at the moment based on how many great pieces I’ve added to my winter wardrobe. This berry shade is just the right thing to brighten up any outfit and when paired with a white skivvy and monochrome slingback flats, it’s a simple and understated look with a dash of pretty.

The MVPs of my winter wardrobe are slowly presenting themselves as I find myself gravitating towards certain pieces time after time. I’ve been trying to find that line between feeling and looking polished while working from home, and still being comfortable. I think it’s a work in progress, but I’m loving experimenting with different silhouettes and colours. But above all, I’m finding denim still very much rules in my wardrobe…

Jeans and a white tank— you can’t really every go wrong with a combination such as this. This forms the basis for many a look for me as I can easily throw on a jumper or a blazer and it can instantly change up the vibe of the outfit, but also add a touch of polish. I’m loving relaxed denim silhouettes right now, and this pair by Camilla and Marc is really comfy.

These Levis jeans are the best wash—they look vintage and are easily paired with different top styles, and also pair well with most hues. Loving this button down knit by Viktoria and Woods as it has the look of a shirt, but the comfort factor of a knit.

I am seriously loving Aje at the moment, particularly this top (which I’ve also got in black—see below!). Love the voluminous silhouette which works great with a more streamlined pant. I’ve found it works really well with a statement coat, and simple white pumps help finish off the look.

The hue of this Aje skirt is such a good shade for winter. It’s the perfect pop of colour to add a little more energy to a winter look, plus worked back with a black smock top, it looks polished. I also like the fact that I can take this look into spring, which definitely betters the cost per wear of this look.
