Do you ever find yourself questioning what a smart casual dress code entails? Well ladies, you are not alone, as I too have stumbled when styling this specific ensemble. A birthday brunch, an engagement soiree, an anniversary with the bae – the stylistic tone remains the same, favouring chic, clean lines and classic accessories. To make things easier, I’m sharing my Top 7 Pieces For Your Smart Casual Wardrobe.
French Connection Mozart Knit 2IN1, Witchery Side Panel Joggers, Lack of Color Ivory Fedora, Loeffler Randall Winnie Tassel Slippers, Samantha Wills Jasmine & Fleetwood Drop Earrings, Furla Bubble Keyring Moonstone, Mimco Supermicra Pouch.
Cigarette, capri or joggers – I believe any fabulous female should always have a crisp, tailored pant at the ready. Look for neutral colours that will provide versatility with the rest of your wardrobe. I absolutely love these ivory panelled joggers as they are simple yet chic, perfect for a relaxed outdoor setting, or an intimate dinner with riverside views.
This item is the perfect transeasonal piece, to be worn by itself in the warmer months and layered delicately in winter. This French Connection piece is a fabulous combination of sexy and sophisticated, with it’s classic high neckline and split back detail with sheer panelling. Not to mention, it’s black so it will go with everything in your wardrobe!
Because a tote is not always practical for those cheeky Espresso Martini’s in a crowded riverside bar. Metallics help to elevate even the most neutral colour palette, taking you from desk to dance floor in seconds.
Comfortable and totally on trend, a girl needs a pair of loafers as part of her shoe-robe and who can resist these metallic, tasseled slippers? If Cinderella had a pair of these perhaps she wouldn’t have needed to leave the ball so promptly, amiright?
I recently found myself at a spectacular little picnic for the launch of UberEATS. Relaxed setting – tick! Delicious treats – tick! Chic, casual style – tick! The only thing that was missing, was a classic hat like this effortless Lack of Color Fedora. Need I remind you how fabulous Amal Clooney looks in a hat? Inspo!
There’s nothing quite so sophisticated as a statement drop earring, especially when paired with an effortless nape of the neck hairstyle. Samantha Wills is delivering the goods with this simple pearl design and rose gold hardware. Divine!
Perhaps the cheekiest little accessory you’ll ever own! I’ve just added my third bag pom to my collection (thank you Ted Baker) and I’m not about to stop until I own one in every pastel colour! Adding just the right amount of playfulness to an outfit, a bag pom highlights a flair for accessorising – talk about goals!

Whether you’re flittering through a casual office, or looking to build upon your capsule wardrobe, I’ve rounded up an edit of chic, classic staples, to keep you looking stylish 5 days a week.
Mondays call for a little sass to start the week! I’m throwing out retro vibes with this Wizard Of Oz inspired gingham number from Seed Heritage. No Ruby Red Slippers to be seen, but I do recommend a comfy pair of sandals and a country chic boater.
Takes strides on a Tuesday with an edgy playsuit like this monochrome Witchery addition. With a bold, geometric print, you’ll want to team back the accessories, opting for quality not quantity. A luxe time piece has never been so necessary!
Flirty mid week meetings are made more exciting with feminine frocks, like this Country Road dress. Neutral accessories and block heels help to complete this ladylike look.
Fierce Thursdays should be mandatory, so pull out your animal print and let your inner goddess rule! Style with a crisp pair of white jeans and finish with a bold accessory like a fedora, or a summer vest.
Finish off the working week with a playful number! Did someone say polka dots and Prada? Perfection!

If gift giving itself isn’t hard enough, then throw on top buying for that one special friend/girlfriend/family member that has fine taste and just about every fabulous trinket that one could possibly own. To make shopping for her that little bit easier, I’m sharing my gift guide featuring 4 gifts ideas that she’ll adore!
If she loves one of a kind, personalised trinkets, then a piece from The Daily Edited is the perfect choice for her! Pick from endless leather swatches, monogramming options and emojis to make her leather goods as customised as possible. I personally love the combination of this smooth, pale pink leather with rose gold hardware and monogramming. Of course, I just had to keep things consistent with a matching phone case.
Valued at: $150

If she loves tea and any opportunity to host a sophisticated brunch with the gals, then a beautiful tea set is just ideal! As a mega tea and china enthusiast, I particularly love Cristina Re Tea Ware. These tea sets are really quite exquisite with their decadent 24ct gold plated hardware and decorative feminine designs.
Valued at: $175

If she love to spend extra time on her main mane, then why not spoil her with the gift of good hair days with a Stefan Xmas Bag. Featuring a stylish tote in 1 of 4 designs which you can fill to the brim with her favourite hair and beauty products, styling tools and treats.

If she loves the latest fragrances, then a scented delivery from Victoria Secret will be high up on her wish list. The new Intense Fragrance Mist combines notes of salted praline, coconut and creamy florals, making it a delicious summer scent. Another favourite of mine is the Blush Fragrance Lotion which smells of fresh grapefruit, blossoms and magnolia.

What began as a little Parisian tradition, has travelled throughout the world, encompassing an all white dress code, an elite guest list and a secretive location for a stylish rendezvous. Of course, I’m talking about non other, than the prestigious Diner en Blanc.
