Fashion, What I Wore

What I wore to work this week

12th November, 2020

I’ve been doing these WFH posts since the beginning of the year and it’s been great to share snippets from my work wardrobe on a weekly basis. But given my WFH situation has definitely expanded beyond my home office given the loosening of restrictions, I’ve decided to tweak these posts to share what I wear to work in general. Whether it’s at home, out and about or hosting events, it’s a look at my working week, one outfit at a time, like right now…

Monochrome looks are always a winner because they’re easily put together and look chic without much effort at all. These jeans are elevated by belt detail, and this Bec and Bridge top has been such a great buy as I’ve been able to wear it with so many different outfits. I love adding sneakers to most looks, but this pair makes it just that little more special.

Pops of colour are always one way to pep up a work week. I tend to gravitate towards dresses when I’m working from home, but will be out and about for periods of time throughout the day as they’re comfortable but always look dressed up and polished.

Activewear at my desk… is there anything better? I’ve been a big fan of The Upside’s on trend take on exercise gear from the beginning, and love the colour combination of this pairing. The comfort levels of leggings and a tee are sky high so if I can get away with wearing it for the entire day I absolutely will. I also find if I’m wearing my workout gear first thing in the morning, there’s more chances for me to get a training session in, which is a definite upside (sorry, had to do it).

Activewear one minute, Gucci change room the next! I was shooting something at the new Gucci store in Sydney so took the opportunity to play dress ups. This shirt dress is the kind of thing that I wouldn’t mind Santa popping under my tree on Christmas Day…

With a busy schedule, the Melbourne Cup and sunny days one minute and rainy days the next in Sydney, my looks this week certainly covered the full spectrum of my wardrobe. The highlight was definitely my dress on Cup Day because, hello, dreamy statement sleeves! But I was also able to work a few of my go-to summer dresses in the mix and one of my fave, comfortable WFH outfits.

This biscuit coloured dress by Oroton is such an elegant take on linen. I’m a fan of floaty linen pieces but this sleek silhouette is such a great design that can be dressed up with heels, or dressed down with sandals to work from home. I kept things tonal with a white and brown Burberry bag for when I needed to head out, and finished it off with comfy Gucci sandals.

I can assure everyone this is not a typical work from home look! Melbourne Cup day called for frocking up and this dress by Constantina Danis was a pink and statement sleeve dream. I went with neutral heels and an ombre oversized bow to finish off this ensemble.

I’d have to say this is one of my staple formulas for a comfy look. A top, worked back with denim and comfortable shoes such as sandals or sneakers and a backpack is my ultimate WFH outfit.

Who else really loves Aje dresses? I’m a huge fan because the silhouettes and finishes are always so interesting and different. A dress worn back with flats is one of my favourite combinations, and is a great way to do a feminine and polished look.

It’s been a busy few days with racing events on the cards so my work from home wardrobe this week has been a little dressier. It’s been all about fittings and getting event prepped with desk time interspersed in between so I went for easy, polished pieces that still tick the comfort box. Here’s what I wore this week.

Steele is always a go-to brand for dresses because they always feature really beautiful silhouettes and fun prints and colours. I fell in love with this sage colour immediately, along with the flattering cinched in waist.

These Venroy linen pants come in a variety of different shades and they’re quickly becoming an integral part of my spring wardrobe. As it’s still in-between weather, I rugged up in this baby blue jumper, and finished it off with the comfiest summer sandals I’ve ever had.

I’m a fan of gingham prints so it’s always great to find the print done in a less common colour way like light blue. I love how this print pops. Also, I can attest to this being such a comfortable WFH look. Dresses are quickly becoming one of my favourite pieces to wear while working from home.

The weather has been a little bit gloomy in Sydney so I wanted to embrace a vibrant pop of colour to brighten up my mood. What better way to do it than with a bold yellow? It was a day of being at home and out and about so I utilised my fave roomy Goyard tote, and ultra comfortable Ducie sandals.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
