Acne shirt, Dion Lee blazer, Toi et Moi jeans, Acne boots
I developed a bit of a thing for this Acne shirt when I saw Hannah Rose wearing it in white, all big and drapey (which just happens to be one my favourite ways to wear things) last summer. Lucky for me, the internet was on my side and delivered the shirt in black and on sale. My blazer is disguising all of the awesome little details; but there’s a side-split which reaches all the way up to my waist and a complicated asymmetrical hem. It’s one of those pieces that can be worn a million different ways and carefully covers you up like a well tailored sack. Genius.
The white jeans are also a favourite. They balance out my dark wardrobe, and feel a little more clean and sophisticated than any other denim I own. And the boots I’ve worn almost every day for a year and are still going strong!
I think being in the Southern hemisphere makes those interested in fashion quite accepting of trends that don’t relate to our current season. The Northern hemisphere tempts us with pretty pastels and flirty hemlines and even though it’s cold outside, and we eat it right up. Winter in Sydney has been unpredictable to say the least, and as much as I love winter dressing, I can’t wait for summer. I want the evenings to last forever. And not worry if I need an umbrella each time I walk out the door.
Sara is exactly what I want for spring dressing. Simple dresses and strappy sandals. Maybe even a bit of pastel. I love the square shoulders and and sleek collar, it adds a tailored feel to an otherwise simple shift. And you can’t really tell, but the hemline drops longer at the back, which is the best part of all.
Lovely Kaitlyn from Modern Legacy, looking her usual minimalist chic self. Unfortunately I was in a rush when I spotted her, and was only able to chat while shooting, but it’s always so nice to meet fellow bloggers from around the country. And Kaitlyn is definitely a girl after my own heart; her sleek and simple style is perfection! I always love a monochrome look, and that Wang bag is pretty perfect.
More sport-luxe! It’s crazy how some trends take off so rapidly. Although I think Australian’s have embraced the trend with more enthusiasm than most, it must be something to do with our climate. Alanah is the junior fashion editor at Cosmopolitan magazine, and is as sweet as she looks! I love her downtown-cool style; nothing too fussy and always super hip. Alanah’s approach to sports-luxe is perfection; plenty of crisp white and clean lines. The neon piping on her Sass and Bide pants is pretty slick, and her baggy singlet keeps things casual. Too easy!
