Personal style

The Holidays

Nick Campbell sunglasses, Karen Millen sleeveless knit top, Karen Millen cotton trousers, Jimmy Choo suede pumps, Karen Millen block heel ankle boots and Karen Millen suede cuff sandals

And just like that, its Christmas again. Although I’m a little more excited than usual as it’s my first time being back home for the holidays in three years, and there’s nothing quite like being with family at this time of year. Plus to be honest, I’m pretty happy to be back in the Southern Hemisphere for the holidays. I know we all think of the perfect storybook Christmas being white with fresh snow… But truthfully I prefer being able to enjoy eating meals al fresco, going for afternoon swims and spending lazy evenings outside long after the sun has gone down.

So in the name of Christmas cheer, I’ve partnered up with Karen Millen to talk gift-giving, holiday style and how we spend summer down in little ol’ New Zealand. Check out the full feature right here.

School Yard

Nick Campbell sunglasses, Acne Studios navy blazer (budget alternative here), Woolrich striped shirt, Guess denim shorts, Celine trio bag and Celine patent loafers (similar loafers available here and here)

This blazer-shorts-loafer combo definitely conjures up a few boyish schoolyard vibes, and I’m totally okay with that. A tailored blazer always has a time and a place, even when denim cut-offs are involved. It’s super casual yet polished at the same time. It’s all about balance people.

Flared

House of Dagmar coat (also available in grey here), T by Alexander Wang pocket tee, Pinghe flared scuba trousers (similar scuba trousers here) and Alexandre Birman suede heels (similar suede heels available here)

This is one of my final posts from London for a while as winter dressing makes way for island life and summer in the Southern Hemisphere. So it’s rather fitting I’ve managed to squeeze in two of my long-standing London favourites; sugary sweet pastel homes and this delicious Dagmar coat.

Neoprene trousers may sound a little strange, but this is actually my second pair of the scuba variety and I’ve gotta say I’m into it. The thick fabric is super flattering, and it holds it’s shape in a way I wish all of my trousers would. No harm in a little waterproof dressing on land, right?
