Golden Hardware

Ray Ban Wayfarers, Topshop tie-side top, Topshop cropppd trousers (similar trousers available here), Deadly Ponies Mr Chain Mail mini and Sigerson Morrison sandals (available in white here)

Mixing up classic suiting in the name of warmer weather and slouchy silhouettes. This Topshop two-piece does have the potential to be super slick – but with short sleeves and wrap around detail it doesn’t need to be taken too seriously. Toughened up with some serious golden hardware for maximum effect…

The gold chained bag is by New Zealand leather label Deadly Ponies – a very slick brand which I’ve loved since way back when. My first ever big handbag purchase was a Deadly Ponies piece when I lived in Wellington, so it feels good to have Mr Chain Mail (all of their bags have fancy titles) slung around my shoulder in Paris!

In Black and White

Sometimes there’s nothing slicker than straight up black and white. A lack of colour need not be boring, as these cool kids so so effortlessly demonstrate.

The White Shirt

Leather jacket, white shirt, skinny jeans, heels, blazer, white shirt and lace of brogues all Witchery

It’s no secret I’ve got a thing for shirting. Timeless, versatile and effortlessly chic the humble shirt will always make an appearance in my weekly wardrobe rotation. Which is why I’m incredibly proud to be part of Witchery’s White Shirt Campaign in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

Ovarian cancer has a lower survival rate than both breast and cervical cancer, and there is currently no early detection test or cure.  You can show your support to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation and buy a Witchery white shirt with 100% of the gross proceeds of each white shirt sold going straight to ovarian cancer research.

Mix Up

Mixing prints is half skill, half experimentation. The trick is to have some fun and pair pieces which you genuinely love to wear – no need to be shy! Just keep everything else (think hair, make up and accessories) relaxed and fuss-free.
