What I Wore: Form and Function

27th January, 2021

I’ve been embracing simplicity a lot this summer—my outfits have tended to be unfussy and uncomplicated. I love easy, effortless dressing most days and this Camilla and Marc look is just that.

I’ve really loved nothing more than a simple tank paired with a great skirt or pants and it’s quickly become one of my go-to outfit combinations. This tank is one that I’ll be able to pair with the majority of my wardrobe which is great for versatility. I love anything that I can repurpose over and over again. While the midi skirt is one that’s got a little more character, it’s definitely the kind of style that I can wear with other tops to steer it in different directions. Plus I like the fact it’s a classic style, but the pocket detail gives it a little edge.

I went with a Dior Book tote in a bottle green to add a touch of colour (and also rather practically, it’s a great size for carrying around on a busy day as it fits everything). When working with neutrals, I always like to inject a bold hue to give it a little extra personality. While a pair of Le Specs tortoiseshell sunglasses and my fave black sandals helped tie the look together.

What I Wore: Modern Noir

15th December, 2020

Summer dresses don’t always have to be of the light and bright variety. This black dress by Camilla and Marc is a departure from the airy styles I’ve been wearing and it’s been a nice change to embrace a summery silhouette that has a sophisticated edge. The cold shoulder detail is perfect for this time of year and makes for a fun, statement neckline. Also in keeping with the aesthetic of the brand, the sleekness is tempered by feminine touches such as the puff sleeves, ruching and cut-outs.

I wanted to keep the entire look quite sophisticated and classic and I couldn’t go past the simplicity of my black and white Chanel slingback shoes. They’re a step up from regular flats with their look and feel, but not too dressy that they’d look out of place being paired with a daytime dress. While I appreciate the timelessness of wearing black, I also didn’t want this outfit to seem flat and heavy so I wanted to add a pop of colour with my other accessories. This structured bag by Burberry features a vibrant orange accent colour which add a fun, energetic touch to this ensemble. A pair of gold hoop earrings and slicked back hair completed this look, which has definitely been a fun alternative to my usual summer colour palette and style.

What I Wore: All That Glitters

6th October, 2020

There’s nothing quite like being given the opportunity to play with stunning jewellery which as you can imagine made this shoot even more fun. After my recent princess experience wearing a beautiful tiara by Chaumet, I was equally as excited to wear these beautiful pieces by the French jewellery brand. And when you’re working with a generous helping of diamonds, what better dress code to adopt than black tie?

I opted to go for a glam evening look with this Camilla and Marc midi dress. The lace detail, plunging neckline and statement sleeves all work together to make for a great occasion look. While simple and elegant two-strap Giuseppe Zanotti heels add a sleek touch. But what truly elevates this ensemble is being able to accessorise with a whole lot of sparkle.

These pieces from the Josephine collection are so delicate but also have a boldness to them that makes them truly standout pieces. I went all out and wore a necklace and accompanying bracelet, earrings and ring to help tie my look together and add a healthy dose of glam.

What I wore working from home

6th August, 2020

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.

What I Wore: Sleek and Simple

28th July, 2020

The midi skirt is often one of those pieces that can seem tricky to wear at first but it’s a style that’s quickly become a staple of my wardrobe. This cream skirt by Camilla and Marc is an ideal piece for winter because it’s such a great textural piece to work with, and adds a little depth to a cool weather look. I also love the simple yet elegant seam detail which just adds a point of interest.

While beige could easily work back with so many different hues, I wanted to keep things quite tonal and work with a neutral colour palette. This slimline turtleneck was the perfect option to work back with the skirt, helping to balance the proportions of this look. I also appreciate small, yet impactful finishing touches and I particularly like the white piping on this top which helps lift it and avoid it looking flat.

Ankle boots are a tried and tested winter staple and I had the perfect pair in mind. These Louis Vuitton boots helped ground the look, and the monogram adds a fun touch. I wanted to keep the logo theme going and opted for a Louis Vuitton Speedy with an oversized monogram. It’s a slightly different vibe to the classic LV logo and has a slightly more modern feel. I always finish a look with sunglasses and these small frame Poppy Lissiman sunnies add a fierce and funky touch.

What I Wore: The Little Navy Dress

14th July, 2020

The chance to dress up is always a welcome distraction from everything going on in the world right now. While event dressing is on pause right now, I still couldn’t go past this beautiful dress from Camilla and Marc‘s new range. I’ve always found navy to be such a sleek alternative to an LBD. It’s a slightly more unexpected shade for occasion wear and always looks elegant. What really elevates this dress is the strong design features. The cowl neck is sophisticated and chic neckline, while the split sleeve and the pleated asymmetrical skirt and the belt works together to create a modern silhouette. It also moves really well when on — always a tick in the right box when a dress has fluidity when you walk.

I wanted to incorporate some strong contrasting elements to this outfit and went with crisp white pieces. Bottega Veneta slingback pumps help ground the look and the strong shape is a great contrast to the delicate, finer finishes of the dress.

A structured white bag by Christian Dior adds a great finishing touch to this look. It has an understated simplicity that works well with the detailed nature of the dress. It’s also such a versatile piece as I can wear it with the strap as a crossbody bag or without and use it as a clutch. Dior always does such elegant designs but I always love accessories that work that little bit harder for you.

What I wore working from home this week

2nd July, 2020

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).

What I Wore: New season denim

23rd June, 2020

I’m embracing different denim shapes this season and it’s all about straight leg jeans. This grey pair by Nobody denim is a great way to freshen up a look by incorporating a different alternative to the classic blue wash into the mix. Relaxed denim silhouettes have become my go-to this winter as they can instantly revamp an existing look, and give it a more modern, on trend feel.

Denim is such a great blank canvas to work with and such an easy one to pair with a multitude of different pieces. I wore this back with a simple white tank (because you can’t ever go wrong with jeans styled with a white top) and popped on a teddy bear coat by Camilla and Marc to add a textural element to my ensemble.

When it comes to accessories I opted to keep things in a similar colour family and keep this look quite tonal. I opted for a pair of monogram Louis Vuitton boots and a metallic bronze backpack. Both work back well with the hue of the coat, while still lifting my overall outfit.

What I wore working from home

11th June, 2020

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.

What I Wore: London Calling

6th June, 2020

I’m a firm believer in the high-low mix and the right pieces can make the simplest of outfits feel luxe and special. You can usually find me in jeans and a white tank a lot of the time and one way I love to elevate it is with statement pieces that can give an outfit a little personality. It’s also the perfect blank canvas to take an outfit in any direction. This Camilla and Marc tank and relaxed jeans, are a great option for the off duty style, and have found it to be particularly great for loungewear too.

I’ve always found trench coats to be the ultimate style staple and the Burberry trench is one of the most iconic, classic iterations of it. The British brand has always produced beautiful, timeless trenches which I’ve always loved, but this version features a few modern touches that give it an on trend feel, and takes the style in a more fashion forward direction. It’s also such a great piece to pair back with denim, as it adds a touch of polish in an effortless way.

Accessories that are slightly different and have a unique feel are always a plus, and this Burberry bag with its circular shape and logo feature is such a fun addition to any look. I’m also a fan of crossbody bags as it allows me to go hands-free, while still allowing me to carry all my essentials.
